First, Mona lets be clear: Obama was a sitting duck! I fumed all over this site the night of the election, reminding (educating) readers to the fact that: Clinton got 45 million votes Gore got 51 million votes Kerry got 59 million votes (in 04!) Mccain got as many votes in 08 as Obama got this time! As you can see, between elections there are 5 0r 6 million more eligible to vote. So, with Obama gettiing 9 million less votes now as in 08 and 6 million more Republicans eligible than o8, Republicans should have buried Obama!!! REPUBLICANS DIDN'T VOTE! I live on my ranch in the California mountains but this last month I was visiting my Daughter in the Carson City area, In a month We had no phone call from Republican workers!

Republicans had no ground game!

When Carl Rove was asked about their campaign in Ohio he said they had one place in each county!
Democrats had one in every town! Hundreds! Democrats were hauling people to the polls in their personal cars. They knew where each voter lived!

If I were the big donors to the Republican Super Pacs, I would ask for my money back!!!

Yeah, but why should anyone have to be called? We should all be responsible voters and get our b u t t s off the couch and go vote. Especially as Republicans! It's like getting fired from a job because you expected your boss to have to call you every day to get in to work. It's irresponsible! If Republicans feel they can be apathetic and not follow the election or get motivated to get out and vote then truly we got what we deserved!

The pundit world will now eviscerate Mitt Romney, a man who, had he garnered just a few hundred thousand more votes in a few key districts, would have been hailed as political genius. Instead, his every fault will be examined, his mistakes magnified and his defeat decreed to be, in retrospect, inevitable.

Romney was not my first choice. I had been hoping for Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. But in the course of the long campaign, I had come to admire Romney immensely....
