Why We Were Surprised on November 6th?

Republicans have been instructed to charge Obama with being a "socialist." Once the tables are turned and Republicans are charged with being "a bunch of socialists," these same card-carrying Republicans have been instructed to obfuscate the meaning of Socialism. Republicans now say "Show me ONE definition of Socialism in a reference book that says getting Social Security is the definition of Socialism?" or they strenuously deny that the 'redistribution' of wealth is socialism. All this obfuscation is intended to hide the fact that the Republican party has a slobbering love affair with their brand of socialism.
Republicans say this of their stumbling in Iraq; "First we would be done and would have already quit spending money in Iraq if ya'll peace lovers would have allowed us to simply kill people and break their things." Nice, so it wasn't your Republican party running the show in Iraq, but the leeberals. These Republicans want America to forget that George W. Bush was president from January, 2001 through January, 2009! These Republicans are CLUELESS about General Petraeus's technique for running an effective counterinsurgency. Perhaps they know more than him, and again, maybe they do not.

I do not believe it was the real reason was [sic] an extramarital affair. I believe it was Benghazi. He refused to be the fall guy. When did an affair ever stop a Democrat. If anything…. Perhaps one of Obama’s many Muslim Brotherhood advisors are on the shortlist to replace him.

Petraeus Resignation Is an Obama Plot to Put a Muslim in Charge of the CIA - Just another stealth shariah plot by BHO The right wing universe is now in full-bore conspiracy theory mode over the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, just as I predicted. It’s a case study in the conservative movement’s decline into bad craziness; they’re all muttering darkly about cover-ups and hidden connections and “questioning the timing.” One of the most brain-dead of the wingnuts, loony hateblogger Pamela Geller, has a typical post on the subject; for her it’s all part of the Islamic supremacist stealth shariah takeover of America, of course:

I don’t believe for a second that the Republican Party is going to be able to reverse this downward spiral; the appeals to racism and xenophobia are far too ingrained in the very identity of the GOP. I predict that the trends will go in the exact opposite direction — even more extremist — and the party will continue purging moderates and pandering to the far right and the religious right, only more so. I believe the only changes we’ll see will be changes for the worse. It would be wonderful if I’m proven wrong, but I won’t be.

Now, many young Republicans worry, they are the ones in the hermetically sealed bubble — except it’s not confined to geography but rather a self-selected media universe in which only their own views are reinforced and an alternate reality is reflected. What Republicans did so successfully, starting with critiquing the media and then creating our own outlets, became a bubble onto itself.

Before the election, there was much fear-mongering on the Democratic side about the Republicans’ supposed plans to suppress turnout among Obama voters. After the election, GOP strategist Karl Rove accused the Obama campaign of ‘suppressing the vote’ by running a negative campaign against Romney that kept voters at home. The truth is much worse. There was, in fact, massive suppression of the Republican vote—by the Romney campaign, through the diversion of nearly 40,000 volunteers to a failing computer program. There was no Plan B; there was only confusion, and silence.

#Breitbart.com EXCLUSIVE BOMBSHELL: Romney Lost - As commenters spew racism and conspiracy theories As the right wing recriminations get louder and more strident, one of the big stories in Wingnut Land today is the Romney campaign’s absolutely pitiful “get out the vote” effort they dubbed “ORCA.” At the ridiculous fake news site Breitbart.com, hack Joel Pollak (who, last week, was busy churning out one deceptive article after another about how Romney was destined to win) has one of their “exclusives” that isn’t exclusive at all: Exclusive - Inside Orca: How the Romney Campaign Suppressed Its Own Vote.
Not unusual to once again find the GOP in denial. Instead of thinking in terms of policy they're thinking in terms of messaging. This is a continuation of the complete lack of respect the GOP has for the American public. Re-package antiquated ideas and the public will come to you. That's not how it works. The GOP simply lost because it was a rejection of their policy. Have they forgotten the far-right association that the Romney camp established? Embracing Ted Nugent and having a VP candidate who worked alongside Mr. Legitimate Rape?
