Lets remember that Marion Berry still serves on the Washington City Council and Charlie Rangel was elected Tuesday with 91% of the vote. Obama is clearly the worst president ever. He received 95% of the African American vote and 65% of the Spanish American vote, as well as a large percentage of college students.

There is no point in spinning -- conservatives need to face honestly what this election means.

A first take: Gov. Mitt Romney tried to win while leaning on only one leg of the old Reagan coalition: jobs, jobs, jobs, economy, economy, economy. Against a president with a poor record on the economy, he lost.

The Mitch Daniels "truce" strategy on social issues is a clear loser in this election. The Reagan coalition, which honestly may not be the pathway to victory moving forward, had three legs: values issues, national defense and economic growth.

Romney adopted the most ineffectual strategy vis-a-vis the social issues: adopt...
