In 2008, I said don't blame McCain; we were dealing in 2008 with a number of factors that made for a perfect political storm favorable for the Democrats: (1) a finanical crisis creating economic uncertainties that historically have aided the Democrats and certainly did in 2008; (2) a GW Bush Administration bank bailout that muddied the waters in terms of the economic differences betwen the parties; (3) an absurd amount of mainstream media bias that had a slobering love affair with Obama; (4) a weariness with war and GW Bush; (5) a 7 to 1 Obama money advantage; and (6) unfavorable demographics. Coulter blamed McCain anyway. So now her man Romney lost in 2012, and she says don't blame Romney. Ann, you can't say that.

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...
