Just as the Jews in the Old Testament needed catastrophe to repent and return to God, Americans have the inclination to wait until the left is proven wrong before temporarily returning to the right. A big difference is that the right doesn't quite get it correct - sinners and youngsters on both sides promise continued conflict and error.
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.
