You folks really need to understand something - The Tea Party for starters didnt help at all! Second - People arent buying into your "Smaller, Less Intrusive Government" mantra anymore; Not when you try to force government into what should be very personal life decisions whether it be between a Dr and his patient s. (Roe vs Wade, even in cases of rape or incest, Think back to Terri Schiavo and other cases like hers, Your current day GOP's attempts to destroy the separation of church and state.. something we were taught as a good thing in grade school,.. Your partys attepts to inject and abuse the federal and many states constitutions with discrimination with bans on gay marriage.. etc ertc etc.. Your prob isnt people on Welfare. Its YOU

No offense to the anti Tea Party crowd, but the Tea Party was actually quite successful for a while, I agree that it was eventually co opted by the Republican mainstream, and then the Democrats started making things up about it being a racist movement with the help of the media, but they were successful at electing members of Congress in a way that Occupy failed to do.

I have to disagree - You had Tea Party candidates win and they are very unpopular - Rick Scott and Alan West in Florida,. Michelle Bachman in MN - These people are scary!! Radical! Then you have, "The insane Koch brothers" ,.,..whether you agree with these people or not is irrelevant,..Fact is their views are too polarizing and .will not win elections on a national level.. ever,. You all arent doing your party any favors by making stuff up and turning a blind eye to the real causes of your partys failure..The party no longer cares about facts - Its all sensational blah .. This "liberal" media mantra is a hoax! What famous dictator got into power claiming to believe him and that everybody else is lying!? .think about that.. (tick tock)

In other we all have to agree to the radical lefts views or we are wrong. According to polls more than half the country doesn't believe in the far left agendas you mention above. So you are wrong.
I don't care if you are or are not a Christian killing babies is wrong. How can you defend it? How can you say the mother should possibly be able to make the decision to get rid of her unborn baby? Please sensibly answer this question.
If she has it and kills it she is tried for murder.

This perfectly illustrates the level of understanding you have when your info sources are the tradtional media.
Even when the economy is terrible, when the incumbent Democratic president has not been able to demonstrate success on job creation or growth, and even when the standard of living for Americans is declining on his watch, the country will choose a Democrat "who cares about the problems of people like me" over the Republican. That alone is enough to make Republican heads spin for some time.

Many established beliefs about presidential politics have been proved false by Obama's reelection: 1.) The idea that, when unemployment is above 7 percent, incumbents fail; 2.) The notion that incumbent presidents who...
