Oh for fark's sake, they were plenty motivated. These are the same people who are crying about the death of America by the evil usurper Marxist-Fascist-Muslim-Athiest-Christ-Killer-Usurper-In-Chief/Antichri st-Chicago-Thug-Empty-Suit-America-Hater-And-Destroyer-Of-Souls. Since before Obama was sworn in, they cast it as a battle of good and evil, and have been relentless in pushing that message. Their base turned out, it's just that their base is a bunch of racist old white people who are deathly afraid that some scary black man is farking their pretty little granddaughter doggystyle, while her boyfriend, who's your best friend's son, is forced to watch. But what really scares them about this scenario is that it gives them a raging hard on that makes Viagra seem obsolete.

Anyways, I digress. The point I was trying to make was that their base turned out, it's just that their base isn't that big. If you know what I mean.

ATRDCI: Anenu: So how does Rush deal with the fact that Mitt only got around 1 million less votes than McCain in 2008 while Obama got 8 million less this time around? You can argue that the Republican base wasn't as fired up as it could have been but on by the same token then the Democratic voters where apathetic to the entire election.


Whats ridiculous is that even with this vote apathy, because of the crazy shiat that Republican Senators and Tea Party supporters have done. The democrats actually gained seats when the republicans should have taken the senate 53-47

/Indiana tea partiers who kicked out Dick Lugar, how do you feel now?

A Democratic Senator is a gift from God.

He's right, you know. I just wasn't motivated to get out there and vote because I didn't feel Mitt was pushing a strong enough pro-rape, pro-prayer, pro-shunning, anti-regulation policy platforms.

Actually that is probably part of the problem. It is also true that the majority of voters rejected the GOP platform. Rape and poverty just aren't as popular as they were back when America was great. I am sure Rush covered that coherently...

Also, a friend, who is conservative, posted a Newsmax article about why the Republicans lost. It was, for a Newsmax article, fairly reasoned and cogent, it did stray a bit into derp, but for the most part it addressed some valid issues.

Of course, this sort of thing will not be tolerated and the right will keep on careeing to the right at a high rate of speed.

Favorite FR Comment:

"But you have to understand that "Hispanics" are among the largest law breakers in America. 1/3 of those incarcerated in the federal prison system are illegal aliens. Many who come here are takers not makers, flaunt our laws, form lobbying groups to support lawbreaking, won't learn English, and in the worst case declare they own the southwest. Hell, a few Hispanic entertainers are openly hostile to whites, for what reason I have no idea."

Really? You really have no idea why they'd be openly hostile? Really?

You mean people will vote for their own economic interests?!?

The keys to your economic interests are not in my ass pocket, sorry.

Maybe the Repubs will get votes when they stop stealing from people and then attacking the people they stole from for being poor.

They put together a party... a house party, if you will. They wanted it to be the biggest, most popular party in the neighborhood. Then they sent out fancy invitations with shiny embossed red white and blue stars and spangles:

Come to the Republican party! Everyone is welcome, we would love for new neighbors to attend!

Please bring a dish to share with others. If you are unable to afford to bring anything, you should stop being a slacker and work harder to get the money. If you don't have a job, we will permit you pick off what's left on plates as you bus the tables.

All faiths are welcome, even atheists can come! You don't mind if we accuse the host of the party across the street of being a Muslim though, do you? Because Islam is evil. So is evolution. And we hope you find Jesus soon or you're going to burn in Hell.

People of all races are also encouraged to attend! Please disregard the group of guys in the corner that may scowl at you and bark out racial epithets... we'd publicly castigate them, but they brought dip. Can't have a party without the dips, amiright?

Please bring your spouse, as long as your spouse is not the same gender as you.

Then they get pissed and can't understand why everyone but old white guys snubs their shindig.

No, you didn't need to motivate your base, they were motivated enough by their dislike of Obama; you needed to appeal to moderates, but you turned them away from you and towards Obama - by your attempts to motivate the base.

Conservatives got all the votes they were gonna get. The parasites out-number the host population, and you can actually get them to put down the crack pipe and disengage from their homosexual sodomy for a day and go vote on the presidential election days when a drug addicted homotard like Obama is on the ballot.

Gwyrddu: Also, I love how Republicans think that if they just show off some token Hispanics they'll win the Spanish vote. It never occurs to them to actually do anything to actually help the Hispanic community, or any minority group for that matter, like passing the Dream act for example. Instead, they'll just assume that minorities are just as racist as they are.

Hey, now. Operation "See! We got one too!" almost worked with Michael Steele, Herman Cain, and Sarah Palin.
