Don't Blame Romney

Ann Coulter has become much more rational, in my view, in the last year, including her support for Romney when many other conservatives were acting more like Judge Moore of Alabama. I do not blame Romney, although perhaps he could have been better - who couldn't? But, I do not blame the storm either. It should not have been that close. I blame the conservatives who were birthers, who were screaming about vulture capitalism, who bash gays and sure, the two senseless statements by senatorial candidates, but they mostly angered people already voting for Obama. Conservatives blew this election by scaring off some moderates and independents who should all have voted for Romney (or in non-swing states - Gary Johnson). . .

Moderates are Killing America!

"In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromiser is the transmitting rubber tube." – Ayn Rand

I expect these same conservatives will start up again in 2014 or so, maybe earlier, claiming we need now an even more conservative candidate, who will bash gays, atheists and American Muslims and perhaps foist off good men like Mitch Daniels.

I am surprised by her position on rape/abortion. If you believe that a fetus is a life as she does, her logic here was senseless. In fact, I can hear in my head another version of herself saying something like this to this version - So, it's okay for you to kill a baby because the father is a cretin? If you take her reasoning to its logical extreme, is it okay then to kill a product of a rape at any point?

I think Libertarians received exactly what they wanted - four more Years of Barack Obama.

Which I guess shows that you don't know any libertarians. Never spoke with one who did. I would have voted for Romney in a swing state like Va. In NY or Calif., why not vote for Gary Johnson. If each libertarian voted for him 5 times it would not have made the slightest difference.

“Libertarianism is to authentic conservatism what Barack Obama is to 19th century liberalism”

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
