winterbraid: As someone who was a Democratic-Republican back in the 1800s
Geotpf: I know what you mean-Reagan was really big on making gay marriage legal and not firing government union members.
I alone am best: So let me get this right.Obama win = mandateRepublicans win house = do what Obama says just because you want to still have a job in 2015.
Fart_Machine: As someone who was a Republican back in the 80s the conservative candidate did win. What you call Democrats today would have been considered Republicans over thirty years ago. It's just that the GOP has thrown itself over the cliff.
Blue_Blazer: These days it's victory gay sex while smoking a bong with some Latinos while having an abortion all underneath a banner of Nate Silver, Hallowed be thy Name.
clowncar on fire: You won due to: a lackluster candidate and over confidence on our part, and of course, having a more populist message to run on. Having a exceptionally loud extremis on our side certainly didn't hurt your cause.
clowncar on fire: Blue_Blazer: clowncar on fire: Citrate1007: Lets continue to destroy the economy out of spite!!!"And while we're at it, let's lay all our failure on Bush's doorstep for the next four years".I don't think you'll find that happening as much in the future- partly out of damage control, partly out of the realization that this tactic has resulted in fail and in part, due to the realization that we cannot continue on with business as usual. With the last four years we had a little wiggle room and could afford a little colateral damage in effort to shift the political tide in the conservative's favor. We now know this is not the case, and we also know four more years of similar obstructionism will be the death of us all. While four more years of enforcing the sluggish expectations of a lame duck POTUS is possible, I firmly believe that there will a more centrist shift on the part of the conservatives, especially in areas where we believe can walk away with some dignity still intact.Regarding extremis "news sources". Keep in mind these are the individual thought of the far extremes of both sides, not the voice of the majority. The media- as well as the liberal party-- has done an excellent job at marginalizing and downplaying the voice of extreme liberal belief while at the same time allowing for the creation of iconic representatives out of voices and deeds coming from the extreme right. I short, we played right into your hands by failing not to allow our extremist right to do the talking for us.You say liberal party, I did not realize the Greens took control. Oh and it is this fantasy liberal party that is to blame for "the creation of iconic representatives out of voices and deeds coming from the extreme right."In other words, you are still in denial, and nothing is the responsibility of the radical right.OK, then. You're nit-picking here. By "liberal", I'm generalizing as "not conservative". If you'ld prefer The Left or Democrats, so be it. We can both safely agree that the conservatives (republicans/right)did not win the POTUS and the senate- the "other guys" did. Are we happy now?I never placed the blame on the "left" for our inability to muzzle our rightist extremis- we won't credit you there for our mistakes. On the other hand, hats off to the left for downplaying their extremis and not allowing them to become the voice of the democratic party. Regarding the media: they were only too happy to bring our more "colorful" personalities to the forefront portraying them as the true voice of the republican party.You won due to: a lackluster candidate and over confidence on our part, and of course, having a more populist message to run on. Having a exceptionally loud extremis on our side certainly didn't hurt your cause.So loosen up those panties, shake out the sand, and go have yourself another victory beer.
born_yesterday: No way anybody would take on the burden of THAT pre-existing condition.
jayhawk88: Is anyone tracking the right's 5 Stages of Grief progress? Are we still in Denial?
