harsh on my part I admit but unless the GOP becomes the party me to giveouts they will not win much of the black/hispanic votes.

Remember the woman in Michigan saying that Obama will give her money from his stash? Remember the voter in 2008 saying now she wont worry about buying gas as Obama will help her buy gas? Or more recently Obama phone? Obama and the Dems are very skilled confidence people no different that the confidence persons who used to sell medicine that they promise will cure anything, by the time people figure out its a con game they are long gone.

That's right - it's that mentality which boarder on racism, judging others by a few, demonizing those who ask for a hand up. It's that image of heartlessness that conservative wear so proudly is why Mitt lost, and conservative will continue to do so.

I am amazed at the post election analysis. It goes on as if the ballgame isn't over.

Of course, virtually every American who follows politics closely will posit an explanation for why Mitt Romney came up short in 2012. But Sean Trende’s analysis over at Real Clear Politics seems to be the most insightful -- and plausible. Take a look at the following chart embedded in his must-read article:

Conventional wisdom tells us that Republicans lost because they failed to reach out to Hispanics, African-Americans and young people. And to a certain extent that is
