And another panic stricken fool decides the way to defeat democrats is to not defeat democrats but to join them instead. We see this every few years. Romney didn't lose because of Latinos or blacks or women, etc. If those who sat out the race hadn't would we still be talking about how he lost these groups? He lost because he completely misread the polls into thinking he was winning when he wasn't. Thinking he was ahead he played prevent defense and prevented victory instead.
