...and some of the solutions. It's lengthy, but mostly spot on.

I agree with you on that point. But, the rest is much more sensible. His points on Romney are pretty interesting.

re: This guy explains the "real" failures of Republicans


The failure of the republican party is this:

They do not blend as well as the dems.

Democrats don't care if you're a hipster, a bum, a professer, a trash man, or a doctor, they kind of blend nicely into a nice brand.

Republicans don't blend so nice. The yuppie class doesn't like to blend with the NASCAR class. It's not that they don't want to hang out with them... trash men don't usually hang out with college professors either, but on a political level they don't want to associate with lower classes. There are too many factions and types of conservatives, while the dems rally behind a broad brand on voting day.

Valid points, but the real reason the Republicans lost was because of women. Romney won men but lost women by 12%. The Todd Akins of the world cost the Republicans this election.
Because a great deal of women feel that abortion and contraceptives are vastly more important than the fiscal problems facing this country. I guess?

Can't pigeon hole that.

The same thing goes across the board. Very few voters vote while taking in the big picture.

Mexicans vote for who has the more lenient stance on immigration.

Women vote based of of their womenly issues.

White men vote based on money.

Black people vote based on giveaways.

Gays vote for gay rights.

And on and on..

re: This guy explains the "real" failures of Republicans


Republicans are stuck up. I heard one pundit say that the reason D sampling is so high on polls is because 'republicans are at jobs working.'

There might actually be some truth to that. But for Christs' sakes, you don't say that out loud.

Republicans act just like the Israelis: they think they are the salt of the earth, God's gift to mankind, everyone has to be like them, the know-it-alls.

Well guess what, nobody likes a know-it-alls. Nobody cares what you think you know, what you can do, or how much you have.

The failure is with american voters who are more interested in who will win American Idol or their fantasy sports teams, than what our government is doing.

Too many voters base their voting on biased media on both sides or propaganda instead of paying attention to whats going on.

Politicians are not held accountable and its just about who can spin their opinions the best.

When the average child costs a middle class family nearly $300,000 over a lifetime and determines the potential earning potential of a women then womenly issues become fiscal issues.

re: This guy explains the "real" failures of Republicans


Your points are valid. But, there are only two sexes, male and female. One, Romney won by 8 points, and one he lost by 12 points. Therefore I feel more than confident in saying that women were the cause of Romney losing. It's a very simplistic yet true statement. Do I blame them? No because some of the statements by Republicans were down right idiotic. See Todd Akins.

When the average child born today, has no father (check the stats)then it indeed does become a fiscal issue. Because us taxpayers end up footing the $300K, over that child's lifetime. Which is also a further indictment of our society.

Fine why are we footing the bill? Start by cutting that funding off as well.

Since when doe me not wanting to buy something for you ever prevent or indicate that I am against you buying it yourself! These are the thoughts of a socialist society not a free republic. A socialist society would claim that if the gov won't provide it to the public then it is oppressing them.

What is pure comedy is that these fools thi k that the cost won't get passes on. But hey they look at money as if it just appears they But I also have in front of me a letter written years earlier, 1969, 23 years earlier, by Bill Clinton, supposedly at Oxford but had not even signed into his dormitory, no record that he ever went to class the second year, but drawing the $700 a month, that would be about $2,000 a month now from the Rhodes scholarship set up by the British Sir Cecil Rhodes. He was drawing the money, organizing demonstrations against his country in a foreign land.don't see the hard work it takes to make it.

You're preaching to the choir. We need to make a serious effort to control our spending. But...we won't.

I'm not sure how you want this discussion to go, but the fact is Obama managed to convince numerous women mostly single and a good bit middle class to put reproductive rights above other economic issues, (although I am inclined to think that there are more tribal/emotional/irrational reasons involved)

I think the Republicans need to drop the abortion/contraception issue completely, maybe they should even endorse some population control measures so we don't have to foot the bill for these moochers.

re: This guy explains the "real" failures of Republicans


Are you suggesting they should drop abortion and contraceptive issue in a financial way? I am confused.

They just need to make it clear the difference between the gov paying for the services vs private sector.

The democrats were able to convince the sheeple dipshits that if the Republicams don't want federal money to purchase it for them then they must be oppressing them. This is pure socialist tactics

I just see contradictions in the individualistic and economical philosophies of the GOP with the traditional wing that advocates biblical ideas of producing offspring and self denial, which flies in the face of the reality of the world.

I agree, this was a major fail on the GOPs part, but inevitable with the party being taken over by religious fundamentalists.

Yes but if they just came out and explained that it is not the gov job to pay for your actions. They won't prohibit your actions that are now into law but the tax payers will not be forces to pay for the decisions you make.

The problem is the democrats have this arse clowns convinced that it is now the gov resoonsibilty to pay for everything everyone might perceive as a right.
