Arithmetic maybe a flight of fancy for you Dems, but the arithmetic of America's accumulated deficit and unfounded liabilities is sinking your ship.

Spiking the ball and dancing around in victory is nice for you, but the arithmetic is irrefutable. Good luck, you'll need it.

More debt in the last 3 years than in the previous 8, by a long shot. Besides, arithmetic is what it is. Romney/Ryan ran with a plan to curb the deficit. Dems didn't, like there is no problem. Covering your eyes doesn't make the monster go away.

A few stray thoughts and observations in the aftermath of the 2012 election -- on substance, process, and tactics:

(1) The polls were broadly right, both at the state and national levels -- a dichotomy that I believed to be unlikely in the extreme as recently as yesterday morning.  The electorate ended up being D+6, nearly on par with 2008, and six points better than the 2010 midterms.  I was wrong about this, as were a good number of other observers.  The 2012 party ID figures from Gallup and Rasmussen upon which my assumptions were based were...
