Don't Blame Romney

I too disagreed heavily with the notion of changing rules at the RNC. The Paulites had good reason to be furious. And showing that tribute to Ron Paul was, in my opinion, an insult, after what had been done. But let's not act like the Paulites haven't been abrasive and condescending....they've pretty much set every record in the book in those categories. At our State Assembly, they were absolutely out of control, offending every other group there--we'd never seen anything like it. My point being, it's time for both sides to stop shouting down or shutting out the other AND LISTEN. Both love America and make great points--we're all much stronger together than apart, and neither group could defeat the Democrat machine on its own.

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
