I agree with Ann; Romney was not the problem. Let's face it--more than half the country, especially the non-white demographic, is just too dumb, or biased or unconcerned or dependent to ever approve Romney's message. If Obama had white skin, he'da lost. He would not have even beaten Hillary in the dem primary. Many evil or incompetent or extremist ideologues have been popular in history. History doesn't repeat itself--people just keep making the same mistakes. One mistake I hate about republicans is they keep contrasting big and small govt. USA needs big govt, especially as world leader. Talk about govt problems, not that it is BIG.

Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.' -Frederic Bastiat http://www.iwise.com/XQnU8

Or how about we are all racists because we want everyone to be treated equally and not given extra goodies because they have different skin tones.

Small minds always leap to the answers given the last time around, which is probably why Maxine Waters keeps getting re-elected. But the last time is not necessarily the same as this time. A terrorist attack is not the same as the Cold War, a war in Afghanistan is not the same as a war in Iraq, and Mitt Romney is not the same as John McCain or Bob Dole.

But since the election, many conservatives seem to be coalescing around the explanation for our defeat given by Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots, who said: "What we...
