So, tell me, what's the difference between eleven million people voting once for a president, and five million people voting once with three million people voting twice for a president, or any combination thereof? It's the difference between a dictatorship and a democracy. Congratulations Mr. President, you just became the Bashir Assad of the U.S. Barack Obama Is the dictator of the Syrian States of America. After That election? Nobody can claim that the US. is a democracy, anymore.

Nut case, Obama won. More People voted for him and he got more electoral college votes plain and simple,

It was not fraud it was alrgely three things:

1) Enough Americans wanted more free stuff and put their selfish interests over the good of the nation

2) Special Interest voters who vote single issue (same-sex marriage, abortion, etc) and do not care about anything else

3) Racism of the left, where they judge by ethnicity and not accomplishment.

Enough Americans voted for those things ignoring the complete failure that is Obama's first four years. Not fraud etc. I am not saying there was no fraud, there always is and always will be, but it did not tip the Presidential election.

Ok conservatives. This obviously off his rocker. WHich of you will confront his obviously biased and ignorant comment?

I will. But will you now disavow all the leftist nut jobs who fill these pages every single day? Will you disavow the teachings of Jeremiah Wright? Louis Farrakhan? Jessie ("Hymie-town") Jackson? How about the brilliant "academics" like Ward Churchill, who are so flaky that not even the FAR left can defend him?

My point? Not everyone who purports to be a spokesman for an ideology is the perfect spokesman. And don't go getting self-righteous about "conservative" moonbats, because that is a battle you will surely lose.

Tell him, not me. I'd like to read that.

As far as I can tell, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and Ward Churchill dont' post here, now do they?

But feel free. The right wing has thoroughly alienated every single non white male voting block in AMerica. And attacked every person who suggests that's a stupid tactic. Read the responses to Linda Chavez' article.

I can tell you're a lib. You seem to have ADD, since you failed to distinguish between my references to the posters here on Town Hall, and the liberal celebrities I noted after that.

The right wing has done no such thing. The left, though, was successful in branding the right as such. The "right wing" (which you laughingly use as a pejorative, but we here at TH embrace it), allowed the left to paint us as uncaring, anti-woman, and several other false adjectives. Hmm...I seem to even recall that there was a real commercial painting Romney as a murderer, and Ryan as pushing a granny off the cliff. Silly stuff, but that's the mentality of the Dem voter who buys into it.

You fail to note that my comment was specifically about posters on TH. Instead of dealing with that, you chose a ham handed re-direction. The right wing did not "allow" the left to paint them as anything. The right wing painted themselves. Read Linda Chavez' comments: she is basically saying the same thing I am and she's a conservative. Numerous other conservatives have reached the same conclusion.

These are days of hindsight and second-guessing for Republicans, which is human nature after a trauma like this election loss.

There are million “why” theories out there, from the Hurricane Sandy effect to pernicious media bias. Wringing our hands over those factors gets us nowhere.

We can’t stop hurricanes, and media bias is always there. Reagan and Bush 43 won twice against waves of poisonous bias, so that is not an insurmountable obstacle.

What Republicans need is a slate of candidates that can energize the base while expanding the appeal of a conservative message.
