Liberal revisionist history. The GOP was founded specifically to end slavery and achieve equal civil rights for former slaves. Your need to change the facts of history demonstrates that you are unable to refute, or even dispute, the conservative argument. Anyone who has to lie about facts to support his position in a debate knows he has lost before he even begins.

In the mirror image of all the 2012 post-election analyses, the Democrats were said to be finished, out of ideas, hopelessly unpopular. It's like watching MSNBC, with the word "Democrats" replaced with "Republicans."

Democrats had thrown everything they had into beating Bush, crushing the Howard Dean wing of...
