The GOP: A Most Unpopular Majority Party

Although I agree with David's column, I believe it is an unfortunate situation where a political party needs to take steps to educate the voters. Voters have a responsibility to know of the issues and what the candidates stand for. That's not happening anymore. Voters are either too ignorant or too lazy, or both, to make intelligent decisions. And this problem gets worse every year. To be sure, the media isn't helping. But let's face it, people need to do their own research instead of believing Diane Sawyer or paid political avertisements.
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.
