Republicans lost the ground game
Washington Times, by Brian J. Wise

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/11/2012 10:13:15 AM

The Monday morning quarterbacking has already begun over the makeup of the Republican Party. Brace yourself for calls to “moderate” or become more “inclusive” and endless explanations for why the GOP lost one demographic or another. Make no mistake: President Obama’s reelection was a victory for a campaign, not a candidate. (Snip) The president won, not based on the strength of his record (weak), his agenda (more of the same), or because of the shifting priorities of a nation (jobs and the economy are still number one). He won because of the misallocation of resources by Republican donors

Comments:
Dems are much better at dragging their voters to the polls, even if they are kicking and screaming.

Bull! No one will ever convince me that this election wasn´t stolen. Look at the numbers in Pt. St. Lucie and Philly. Lets face it folks, we are dealing with an evil regime that will never give up power. Oh, by the way, it helps when you have 95% of the national media covering you ass.

St. Lucie County, FL vote counts over 100% of registered voters at every polling place..in one instance, 162% of registered voters cast a ballot.
The democrats can and will fix elections.
Obama cheated his way in because he couldn´t win honestly.

What post 3 said. Plus the GOP is fractionalized. Rinos like Christie cause friction, but conservatives are well advised to back off rinos at least in short term, as guys like like Christie and Scott Brown are as good as it can ever get in places like NJ and MA. Furthermore the rejection of Lugar and nomination of idealogues in Indiana and Missouri clearly cost us 2 senate seats. Although the tea party did us some good, it needs to be reigned in.

You all said it for me....massive voter fraud. Ulsterman has a video of a man testifying under oath how elections could be stolen and no one would ever know. No doubt in my mind this is what happened. The numbers don´t add up, and the crowds showing up at campaign stops don´t add up. RR packed the house, ob played to 1/2 filled venues. Something really stinks here, electronic voting needs to go. WAY too easy to mess with. And mess they did. IMHO.

The election was "won" because the Democrats concentrated their "efforts" on ghetto inner city polls where there are no Republican poll watchers or the ones that do go,like I did in inner city Cleveland are thrown out for nothing. That way the poll workers who are paid and the Democratic "observers" are free to pack the ballot box by helping people vote which I witnessed. I called the Romney legal department all day but really don´t blame them it was so widespread. The Dems have figured out every Presidential election is won in the 11 swing states, start screaming in July about how not extending early voting is racist which is another great way to harvest votes using names on the voter list and getting someone to vote for that person. I believe they calculate how many votes it will take to carry the swing states and start stepping. Until more Republicans are willing to poll watch in the ghetto in the swing states I don´t see a Republican president again.

Enough already with the post-election autopsy!!! It is what it is, and we´re stuck with it. We´ll either survive this Marxist regime as a people and a nation, or we won´t.

If we don´t [and I think don´t], then we´ll have to do what we´ve done before: pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and rise from the ashes.

I refuse to believe that a Halfrican Marxist can really "ruin" the nation. He can do damage --a lot of damage, but he can not sink up.

I agree #9. The GOP is simply out of the loop. The Dems are smarter, faster and more conniving. Of course, it helps to have the MSM in your back pocket. I too can not see a republican in the WH again. It`s like trying to climb a mountain with no equipment. When hard work is frowned upon and free stuff becomes the norm all is lost.

In a way it is funny - all the snickering by the dims about winning big - THEY forget that they have to live under old flapears reign too. He is stupid beyond belief and is surrounded by crooks just as stupid. The dims will turn on him in a minute if they do not get their freebies and pats on the head. Frankly, I agree with others that he did not win at all. We will all suffer for the mistakes made at the polls.

Guys, STOP with the BS about conservatives "not getting out there" or "off message" or we had a "weak, non-conservative candidate"or "real conservatives didn´t vote".

We lost because we have a tipping point of producers and takers; couple that with blacks voting the race line and latinos voting for who they think will give them amnesty and freebies, along with of course women voting with their sex organs, and you have a win.

Why is that so hard to accept? Some of you sound like you just got beaten up by the bully, so let´s analyze what we did wrong and appease the bully next time? The problem is the bully, not your "message".

You don´t like it? Yell at your neighbor. They´re the ones that pulled the lever to put this guy back into office. Attend no concert, no movie, nothing put out their by liberals. Really want to pi$$ them off? Love your kids and go to church. Win in spite of the government, not because of it.

And most of all, put the blame where it belongs. Everything else is BS to fill space and air time.

After World War I, the German people came to believe the "stab in the back" myth, which went like this: "We didn´t lose the war. We were on the verge of victory when opportunistic politicians stabbed our military leaders in the back by negotiating an unnecessary armistice and betraying their country." Although false, the myth was widely promoted by self-serving Generals and believed by the German people. This myth polluted German culture for a generation and doomed any effort to base German politics on reality in the inter-war years.

I do not deny that Democrats cheat; I do find it implausible that their cheating concealed a massive Romney victory. For months polls showed Mitt losing in the swing states. The Romney Campaign ran on the assumption that these polls, based on 2008, were incorrect. Everything Team Romney did wrong was based on the delusion that they were secretly winning. And then they bungled the Get Out The Vote operation. In reality, Romney got fewer votes than McCain. The Romney Campaign literally had no campaign slogan. Look at the posters. No message on the air, and a mess on the ground. The only good thing about mistakes is you can learn from them. If you´re smart.

#3: I agree with you. If the Republicans can´t attack fraud immediately and get a fair election up in four years then ground game won´t matter. This election was absolutely stolen. CO had ten counties with more than 100% voter participation that went 100% for Obama. Philly had similar. FL had it, and I don´t doubt VA had it as well. OH definitely had it. Those were states Romney could have (and should have) won and that would have won the election. Very shady stuff.

It will take a massive effort to clean up our elections. The UN, of all people, actually handed us a good weapon in their shock at our loose election standards. Take it and clean this mess up.

I noticed that the Romney people were wasting a lot of time and money in contacting, over and over again, the same supporters.

I have been a Romney contributor since 2008. They had to have known that I was a sure vote. I got tons of emails from them, phone calls for contributions and phone calls to urge me to vote. All of that was wasted. They should not have spent one second of their time on me.

Close to 8 million voter abandoned 0bama this time. Romney couldn´t field one single one of them. Instead lost 3 million that turned up for McCain. That is pathetic. 23% of an all adult poll (roughly 210 million) identified themselves as Tea Party members or supporters. That is a staggering 48 million people. If the Leadership hadn´t spent two years busily alienating these people none of this would have happened.

This doesn´t make or break the Republican party nor conservatives. There are a lot of states that have picked up Republican/Conservative majorities and don´t forget the governorships. Local and state offices are now Republican so it starts locally.

I beg to differ! 3+ million Republicans decided to stay home and not vote. Its not the candidates responsibility to get your sorry fat behind to the polls...it´s YOURS.

To the millions of so called Republicans, congratulations.......you sold out the country, it´s veterans and fellow patriots for "principle". Congratulations!

The only people that irritate me more than stupid Obama voters are republicans that cant pull the lever for a Mormon......or for a candidate that isn´t conservative enough for them. Followed by the libertarians who threw away their vote for legalized pot and and end to an alliance with Israel.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Now we are forever stuck with an ever expanding welfare state. I dont ever again want to hear from these jackasses who complain about RINO´s and didnt vote.

The Repubs didn´t lose because of a "misallocation of resources by Republican donors". They lost because of a population of young women and college students who know about as little as anybody, under-ducated, underemployed and undermotivated people who wanted cell phones, etc. (These shall be known as career Democratic voters),closet Mormon haters, klunks who stayed at home (you knows who you is),and half fast jackasses who voted for third party candidates, such as Bugs Bunny.
Truly, we are at the mercy of knaves and idiots.

Additional moral: If you don´t vote and they do, they will win. I don´t want to hear any whinin´ from ya.

What 15 said. Curious if the Ron Paul voters showed. There were evangelicals that had a problem with Romney. Lots of true conservatives wouldn´t vote for what they saw as a moderate candidate. Is it true that 20 million pubbies stayed at home? My gut feeling is no Washington politician is going to fix things. It will take a grass root movement.

We are always going to be behind the 8 ball when we have a corrupt media. I´m sure you all have noticed that FEMA´s pathetic response to Hurricane Sandy has not been scrutinized, nor Obama blamed. We have only heard about how the hurricane helped him win reelection. Gov. Cuomo actually lauded FEMA´s response and he has received no criticism that I know of. Joe Biden can say the stupidest things and it´s just Joe being Joe. I know it is pointless to whine about it, but it is the truth. I remember when a friend´s son was forced into a divorce by an adulterous spouse. The young man was heartbroken and depressed and my friend told me he knew his son wouldn´t start healing until he got angry. He finally did and then he got over it. We are like that young man. We are lied about (Republicans hate immigrants) laughed at, marginalized and we just take it. Our leaders continue to be polite and wait their turn. They never call their opponents liars. At some point they and we will have to find our righteous indignance and fight back every time we´re attacked.

To make it worse, I was told by a Mormon yesterday not to think all Mormons voted for Romney either. She had been telling me at various times last year that more Mormons are liberal-minded in her stake than I might ever believe. So, there is plenty of blame to go round.

Poll: Obamacare Support Hits New Low

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country. The results also

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Friday said Russia´s takeover of Crimea showed off its military prowess, as his defence minister reported that the Russian flag was now flying over all military sites on the Black Sea peninsula. In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War. "The recent events in Crimea were a serious test," Putin was shown on state television as saying in an echoing

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity. The president’s speech – the format Mr. Obama has favored for delivering big messages in foreign places – came at the end of a day during which the American leader visited for the first time two pillars of trans-Atlantic relations: NATO headquarters and

BRUSSELS — President Obama said Wednesday that Europe and the United States now face “a moment of testing” that challenges their unity and the international order they have worked for generations to build. In a speech Wednesday evening at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in this Belgian capital, Obama suggested that the current standoff with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine is part of a more fundamental struggle between democratic ideals and “an older, more traditional view of power.” He warned against “complacency” in the face of what he called Russia’s violations of international law in taking over Crimea. “If we

WASHINGTON — While President Obama insisted again on Tuesday that the West would not recognize the annexation of Crimea, officials in the United States and Europe have privately concluded that Crimea is lost and that the real challenge is stopping Russia from further destabilizing Ukraine. After meeting with allies in Europe and suspending Russia from the Group of 8, Mr. Obama indicated no plans for additional sanctions unless Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, makes another provocative move. Every reference to further action against Russia during a 40-minute news conference in The Hague came with conditional phrases like “if the situation

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

At least 59 people have died in Guinea following the outbreak of deadly flesh-eating virus Ebola. The first cases of the haemorrhagic fever were spotted late last month. With no known cure or vaccine, health ministers have warned people to stay inside while they try to stop it spreading. Symptoms include internal and external bleeding, vomiting and diarrhoea. It is spread by personal contact and kills 25-90 per cent of those infected. ´In Guinea, a country with a weak medical infrastructure, an outbreak like this can be devastating,´ the Unicef representative in Guinea, Dr. Mohamed Ag Ayoya, said in a

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
