Heartbroken Republicans would do well to consider how much worse it was for Democrats eight years ago.

THAT'S your selling point?
 
2012-11-10 07:24:56 PM  
Yes because if there's anything that makes republicans happy, it's infuriating liberals and making them miserable.

That's like 80% of what they stand for: Pissing off liberals.
 
2012-11-10 07:57:07 PM  
Oh yeah, I guess I remember that. Don't forget that Reagan won 49 states. That really pissed them off. And who the hell thought running McGovern was a good idea? But the kicker is that Democrats were so pissed Lincoln won, they seceded from the union.

I found the internet poll thingy on the side really annoying and distracting. It confirmed my long held suspicions that American media controls the national dialogue by shaping the parameters of the debate in shockingly limited terms. In this case "Entitlement cuts *and* a tax raise?" versus "Just entitlement cuts?", which are apparently a given.

Granted it *is* RCP, just saying, it's annoying.

On topic? Democrats felt worse 8 years ago? Well, no shiat,

America rewarded the guy who sat on his hands prior to 9/11 who then lied a country to war with a second term. I'm still pissed at that level of fail and I'm not even American. You know, pissed over actual reality based reasons as opposed to the vast assemblage of manufactured faux-rages ginned up daily by the entrenched RW media and cited by butt-hurt Repugs everywhere. 

Republicans don't need to search their souls here they just need to pull their collective head out of their collective ass.

The answer offered by party mandarins and the establishment press was that the time had come for Democrats to return to the moderation and centrism of the Clinton era

ORLY? So the Democrats adapted by going back towards the center despite what the extremists of their supporters wanted, but the answer for Republican's getting their butts kicked is to pander even more to their side's extremists?

Hmm, OK... Go for it idiots.

I have no sympathy for the Republican Party when all nine of the nominees in their Primary really weren't qualified to be President. The smart Republicans (Jeb Bush, Chris Christie) just sat this one out.

Kind of funny. The Republicans did everything to make sure John Kerry didn't win the 2004 Election just to wind up with Obama four years later, who I think the Republicans hate much more than they ever did Kerry.

I was a republican not anymore but still I was during the Kerry election cycle and here is my take. I actually like Romney less than Kerry and I never really had any strong negative feelings toward Kerry. He was just kind of boring. Of the 3 (and only given those choices) I like Obama the best. Which I'll be honest isn't really all that much.

That's what has been funny about the snickering and snorting from the liberals.

I remember how they acted in 2004 after Bush won. They were a hundred times more "butthurt" by it and acted that way.

As I said, they acted like inane children in 2004 and they're acting the same way now in spite of a result that goes in their favor.

The Far right conservatives weren't voting for Romney, they were simply voting against Obama I seriously doubt any type of outreach made by president Obama will be well received. The far right won't give a shiat if Obama offers Romney a place on his cabinet. What they cared about is Obama getting a second term, they are so insane with hatred they would rather work towards destroying the country to self prophetize the 1000 years of darkness of the Obama re-election. instead of trying to work with liberals to improve the country.

Of course, Democrats also had reasons to legitimately feel worse as re-electing Bush made us the farking laughingstock of the world (on the flip side, the world was HEAVILY backing Obama), and, I feel pretty safe saying, Bush will easily go down in history as one of, if not THE, worst post-war president.

Didn't help in 2004 that, after a very long day as an election official, with the outside doors nearly always open, and cold rain outside, that I had a sore throat for the next week or so afterwards.

From Charles Krauthammer, in TFA: "I think one thing he might do if it's not Simpson-Bowles would be to offer the Treasury to Romney. I'm sure he would probably turn it down but it would be the ultimate gesture. I don't think it will happen. I agree John Kerry will probably end up at secretary of State. But I must say that my sources in the Obama White House have been rather quiet since January 2009."

No, no. Liberals were upset for no reason whatsoever. W's legacy proves the Neocons were right. In spite of the liberal's childish lamentations, the Republicans are proud of Bush and Cheney's accomplishments. That's why Bush and Cheney were featured so heavily in the McCain and Romney campaigns. All those speeches, rallies, tv commercials... man, it was non stop! The Republicans wanted to be certain everybody thought of Bush and Cheney whenever they saw McCain and Romney.

That's one thing I overlooked in all of the celebrating: part of the reason the Republicans want to bash down Obama is to save Dubya's record. If Obama is just as bad as Dubya, that means that (according to whatever Republicans think logic is) that Dubya isn't the nation's worst president. Of course, they tried to do this by linking various Obama problems with Dubya catastrophes ("This is Obama's Katrina," etc.) so they could start their little shiatty revisionist history nonsense.

Now look at it: Obama is doing a great job considering the obstructionism of the Republicans in Congress. He got some form of healthcare reform passed. He managed to catch the man Dubya never could, and excelled in the face of adversity. The main complaint about Obama is that he wants to bring the country that Dubya separated back together. The worst complaints about Dubya stem from two big holes in Manhattan, quadrupled gas prices, New Orleans being in horrible disrepair, and...well, we would need a list, wouldn't we?

The part that pisses off the Republicans the most is that it tosses their beliefs about race out the window. Dubya grew up with privilege, had everything going in his favor....and is possibly the stupidest person alive. Obama grew up and worked for everything he had, and today is possibly one of the best presidents that this nation has ever seen. Obama is the living embodiment of the ideal that Republicans claim to be for but never support. Obama is the one rebuilding the nation to its glory. You see a Republican mentioning that? They're too busy trying to find more word games to cover for their bigotry. And they still pretend that Dubya--the pinnacle of what their sheltered and twisted worldview--doesn't exist.

No; butthurt is what you did on the day after the election, when you waltzed in here and said essentially, "Meh, I knew Romney had no chance, all the candidates were bad and he was just the best the Republicans could do." Butthurt is what the Republicans are doing now--and you're doing it too--blaming everyone but themselves for losing an election that was theirs to lose and they lost it going away, abandoning their own candidate almost before the returns were counted. Butthurt is whining like a bunch of little biatches and pointing fingers at your own spinmeisters for leading the country astray: Rove and Fox News and Rasmussen and anyone else who might be at fault for the fact that nobody likes your message any more. Butthurt is crying over the fact that liberals are laughing at your solid trouncing and sobbing in your Ovaltine about how mean everyone is just because you did it too.

That is butthurt. You're acting like spoiled brats and we're calling you on it. Learn to cope.

They won't... I know. But that is literally all they would have to do. Instead, they will eat themselves alive with hatred and find what little power they retain slipping through their fingers. The truly tragic part is that when it happens, like now, they will have no idea why or how it happened... even if we tell them.

Wow. I haven't seen such delusional wishful thinking from Republicans since...

5 days ago.
 
2012-11-11 08:28:45 AM  
The GOP isn't dead, but it seems the vast majority of them are still in deep denial... I was reading a column by Krauthammer yesterday and he seems convinced the GOP need only add "Amnesty" for illegal immigrants to its platform and the GOP will win the hispanic vote next election. No other change is needed apparently.

I've heard other GOP pundits say similar things this week... They think it's not a substance problem, but rather a branding problem. If they just wrap up their usual regressive bullshiat in a prettier packaging, then every one will start seeing the GOP as the rational party.

It's almost laughable... Their little bubble may have burst on Tuesday night, but apparently, that bubble was only a small bubble inside a much larger and sturdier bubble.

Oh PLEASE. What Liberals screamed that "American died! We are officially a fascist/socialist country!" like a thousand conservatives did this week?

What liberals tried to get their states to succeed from the union?

etc.

etc.

I do remember several 'threats' of moving to Canadia

Yeah, but I don't think many liberals threatened to leave and take chunks of the country with them.

DAMMIT!

Totally. The ironic thing is, Canada (especially then) is way more lib than here. That, along with the australian anti obama-girl thing is laughable


No the ironic thing, is that currently Canada has a Prime Minister who genuinely has a sad that his closest neighbour voted for the guy he didn't want in office.

(Seriously our government pulled a hard right shift on us, reminds me of the W days)

/Don't get any idears Republicans. This is still Canada you know.

Allow me to continue my Fark Crusade to at least represent what I hope is a growing faction in the GOP that wants to shed the shackles of shrieking sheisty charlatans like Sean Hannity/FNC, Limbaugh/Talk Radio, and the rest of the RW Media 2.0 "2-minutes hate" outlets.

We do exist! You don't hear us much because, well, we don't scream or say gaudy and wildly inappropriate things, like calling POTUS a retard. We don't get much attention because we're not plugged into the Matrix like the acolytes.

So remember, not all Republicans Palin Americans.

That may be true, but your party has given the unhinged, irrational elements the reigns.

As I tell my Republican friends, for me, the damage is already done. I will never vote for anyone associated with the Republican party again. If rational conservatives want me to consider voting for them, they will leave the GOP and all the money that comes with it and run as a true independent candidate, not just as "Stealth Republicans" like Scott Brown.

The GOP brought this on themselves, and if they want people to consider them as rational, moderate politicians, who will work honestly with the Democratic opposition, they need to act as such and put those types of politicians in positions of power in the party.

This past week has not shown any signs they are about to do that.

It doesn't really matter, as long as the thinking members of the GOP can't get moderate candidates through their various primaries. You guys had the chance to run Jon Huntsman for President, and instead everyone was foaming at the mouth for Bachmann, Santorum, Cain, Gingrich, and Perry. Even Mitt was your party's last reluctant choice.

I'm glad YOU are willing to be reasonable, but it doesn't count for much when the actual Republican candidates are intractable far-right lunatics, and when GOP legislators attempt to govern in complete isolation of reality and place party politics above doing the jobs taxpayers are paying them to do. Fix your party, then maybe I'll consider taking it seriously.

rynthetyn: Seems like they've forgotten that everybody knew that Kerry was probably going to lose. Unlike the reality distortion field that the GOP existed in where they were legitimately shocked.


pretty much this. As has been pointed out by others, Bush's re-election was maddening as our gripes against him were at least based in reality... but we had no illusion going in that it was going to be some kind of blow out. The Republican's seem to be legitimately surprised and shaken that the EV count wasn't completely swapped in favor of Romney despite no indication by (reliable) polls that that would be the case.

carpbrain: From Charles Krauthammer, in TFA: "I think one thing he might do if it's not Simpson-Bowles would be to offer the Treasury to Romney. I'm sure he would probably turn it down but it would be the ultimate gesture. I don't think it will happen. I agree John Kerry will probably end up at secretary of State. But I must say that my sources in the Obama White House have been rather quiet since January 2009."

Heh. Hahaha. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHA. Aside from Simpson-Bowles, the whole thing was such a farking hilarious self-parody, I just couldn't have done better myself.


My favorite part was the last sentence. His sources in the Obama White House have been rather quiet since Obama moved into the White House. I'm guessing it's because that was when their access was revoked.

Include caveats for us in your bashings of the GOP. Give us some breathing room, even if our own party bosses and media overlords will not at the moment. Give us the time of day. We really do exist, and in numbers greater than you think. Why do you think so many Republicans refused to vote for Romney this election (myself included)?

If Dems truly want the GOP to be more reasonable, then pay attention to reasonable people within the GOP. If Dems just want the GOP to die, by all means, pretend we don't exist.

But that's precisely what the GOP is doing. It's pretending that the reasonable voices don't exist, and that the nutters are reasonable.

Smelly McUgly: I was still getting my footing politically, so I was upset, but not crushed. That's the good thing.

The bad thing is that, with no life experience, I still thought that libertarianism was an idea worth exploring. It wasn't.


A lot of people go through that phase, me thinks. I never voted for the man, but when I was casting my first Presidential ballot a lot of stuff he said still made a lot of sense to me. Now, after another decade of learning about how society works, I realize his shiat is whack.

I still enjoy going to the Memorial Union when he's in town just to see the crowd. With the exception of Obama, I've not seen another politician that can get the 18-24 demographic so amped up, and Mr. Paul can even do it in libbyland Madison.

I get your point and I don't completely disagree, but, and this just my own personal feelings, I'm done giving any Republican the benefit of the doubt. No offense, but your party hasn't earned it. The rational amongst you have stood by for the last four or so years while the unhinged, regressive clowns of the Tea Party and the Religious Right went out of their way to show their distain for large demographics of this country and pushed an agenda that would put people like my family and myself in a worse financial situation so they could gain political points. Something tells me if the results of this election were different, these rational conservatives would be mum about the hard swing to the right the GOP has taken in recent years.

It's not my job to cut you guys some slack... I'm an unrolled voted (no party affiliation), and in the past I've voted for numerous Republicans mostly on the local level. Like I said, those days are done. I'd rather give the Democrats complete control at this point. They have taken over the center right, and while I tend to lean further left than most Democrats, I'm more than happy to have rational center right politicians like Obama making policy decisions. In my own state, Scott Brown barely mentioned his party affiliation and touted himself as a "moderate independent" voice for Massachusetts... 'Course, when his vote really mattered, he voted in lockstep with the GOP and its current agenda. In short, I don't believe anyone who calls themselves "moderate" or "independent" and still associates with the GOP. Sorry, that's the way I feel, and I'm not seeing anything from the current GOP that will change that perception.

The GOP has become an "Insurgent Outlier". It is your job, as a rational conservatives to take your party back. If you can't, then maybe you aren't as numerous in the party as you thought. Perhaps it's time to form a new party and leave the GOP to the far right.

randomjsa: That's what has been funny about the snickering and snorting from the liberals.

I remember how they acted in 2004 after Bush won. They were a hundred times more "butthurt" by it and acted that way.

As I said, they acted like inane children in 2004 and they're acting the same way now in spite of a result that goes in their favor.


Remember how Bush lost the popular vote in 2000? Remember budget surpluses to budget deficits almost overnight? Remember how ~3,000 lives were lost due to one of the worst intelligence failures on Bush's watch? Remember how we were lied into a perpetual war on two fronts (one of which has become the longest war in U.S. history)? Remember for the first time in the history (ANY country's history) that a tax cut (2003 tax cut, not 2001 - it was before the wars) was implemented during a time of war (who needs to pay for pesky things like wars)? Remember the corporate malfeasance that resulted in regular workers losing their retirement funds and jobs while fat-cat execs received golden parachutes and were not held accountable?

All of that and more happened PRIOR to the election in 2004. Wouldn't you be pissed if all of those lives were lost and all of that money went down the drain to benefit the super-rich?

Of course you don't remember any of that. Must be Romnesia.

lj1330: Libs were worse? Again with the false equivalencies! Does any libs remember trying to secede? How about changing the districts? How about trying to change the voter registration to make it harder for dems to vote? How about threatening to have a "revolution"? Good times, indeed


Sort of, but only as a joke.

Mostly I remember liberal reaction to 2004 being one of grim resignation. We expect to lose and don't cry when it happens.

Ambivalence: Yes because if there's anything that makes republicans happy, it's infuriating liberals and making them miserable.

That's like 80% of what they stand for: Pissing off liberals.


I remember when George Will (who doesn't like football because he truly believes that huddles are where players vote on how to proceed, or what he calls "play by committee") basically said this year "I don't know much about football, I just root for the team whose victory will make liberals the most upset."

And your recollection is correct. The 2012 Super Bowl was between New York and New England.
