Before We Give Up, Could We At Least Try Selling Our Ideas?

Yes, by all means, articulate your Republican positions: lower taxes on the rich, and start lots of wars using private contractors but don't finish them. And make sure you profit handsomely from it. Actually, you don't need to articulate these ideas: the American People already KNOW that's what Cons do when they're in power. That's why you lost. The rest of the analysis is a waste of time. You lost because of who you ARE a d what you DO. Your deeds spoke louder than any words could. You lost because you SHOULD have. You lost because when you last had the chance, you have us the worst president in the history of the country.

I agree with you that we conservatives' failure to admit how many mistakes Bush made in office, has damaged our credibility.

Bush was NOT a good president. Heck, with Medicare Part D unpaid for, he wasn't even governing like a fiscal conservative.

By circling the wagons around Bush and constantly defending him long after the public gave up on him, we conservatives just hurt our own credibility. Let's jettison him.

Keep on repeating axelrod's talking points. Maybe someday you'll wake up and actually have an original thought. Then you can become a conservative with a brain. Until then, you'll still be a libtard. And a particularly stupid libtard.

Greece stares the idiot trolls and spammers in the face and they want policies that will make us just like Greece. I don't get it.
The very demographics propagandized, to win the election, blacks, hispanics and the youth, are suffering more and more, and do not seem to wake up.
'There is no free lunch' will always be true.

What an asinine comment.

Those are the only kinds of comments that asinine fools like "DagNabbit" know how to make.

And his comment would be incorrect how, exactly?
We conservatives may never reach a consensus among ourselves as to the main factors that caused our election defeat, but surely we can agree that we must do a better job of selling our ideas.

Never mind, you say. The electorate has irreversibly become a taker class, and conservative ideas of self-reliance, personal responsibility and individual liberties will never appeal to a majority again, especially with demographics working against the GOP.

We must reject that, or we are as good as surrendering. To accept it, we are confessing our skepticism of the power of ideas, which itself is contrary to the conservative spirit.
