Yes I have noticed that. At least Morris did a mea culpa- Rove NEVER. The Romney at all costs brigade would never even consider that their man (a good man and a decent one) was not strong enough in enough areas (healthcare,foreign policy etc,) to be more competitive. Less republicans voted that in 08- why? Its always a game of how can we become more like them when we lose. When we win its always wow we did that by being moderate (even though its usually because we stuck to first principles). This game is very old and very worn out.
