STOP LISTENING TO BENSON: he is as wrong now as he has been for the last year. Romney: "Classy concession speech."

The Republicans should have walked easily to a win this year but lost because of the looney fringe. It is as simple as that. Stop shouting nonsense like 'Socialist', 'Marxist,' 'Collectivist.' You are wrong now and have been wrong all along. Grow up; this is the 21st century and stop trying to bring the US back into the 17th century. Turn off Fox "news". Your ignorance, fear-mongering, and anti-Americanism has run its course.
