As if the Democrat Brand is sparkling clean? When the bus is heading over the cliff, when does women issues, gay rights, globull warming, et al suddenly become so important? So women have the rigth to abort a life within them... is that more important than becoming Greece or Russia in the '20 and '30s? So gay faggs can marry... whooptiedoo. Is that more important starving because food prices are outta sight because gas prices are outta sight? Is everything more important than our government spending money we don't have?

Ok, I was wrong. I thought the Republicans would win the Presidency. I was not the only one. Smart people like Michael Barone and Karl Rove thought so also, in addition to people like Dick Morris. A knowledgeable friend called me the Saturday before the election and told me John McLaughlin, the pollster, just told him Romney wins it going away. So what happened?

First there is the big picture. I think there were three issues that hurt the Romney campaign along the way. The first is his turn to the right to win the primaries. My now politically-astute son asserted...
