The GOP: A Most Unpopular Majority Party

David, your is by far the best analysis I've seen on what happened and Republicans ignore it at their peril. Romney needed to attack, attack, attack and he didn't, preferring to sit it out on the 19th hole at the countryclub and be gentlemanly. He also would probably have won if he had done what Reagan did--buy half hour time slots for infomercials to circumvent the media and discuss the issues in depth. NOW we need some Ghandhi passive resistence--Republicans need to make sure Obama and Reid and the Dems own what happens and let them pass all the destructive measures they want. Vote present or abstain. They won, let them own every bit of it. If we don't they will still blame it on Bush.
Isn't it tragically ironic that the man who rode the perfect storm into public office on the horse of national unity has now perfected the politics of division so spectacularly that he won re-election despite the worst record in decades?

For when you sift through the rubble from the Republican Party's 2012 nuclear catastrophe, you find consistent clues pointing to a simple explanation: We lost because Barack Obama convinced enough voters that he cares more about people than Mitt Romney, a rich white guy who is contemptuous of the poor, women, blacks and seniors. Never mind results; Obama cares and Republicans don't.
