A wake up call about what?

Most of the examples listed were about Conservative talk show hosts and authors.

The "Magic Negro" example was wrong. That term was first coined by the liberal LA times. The song was a spoof on THIER words, not the other way around.

The left can dress up like vaginas and urge voters to "Vote like their lady parts depend on it" and it's the GOP who needs a softer, more sensitive image?

There is no way to avoid a biased, slanted media who will attack conservatives and ignore the outrageous actions and words of liberals.

The only example in that list that really mattered and was avoidable was all the morons chiming in on abortion with idiotic statements. On that point, I agree.

But to say the GOP was on the wrong side of the 30 year old, slut activist Sandra Fluke is ridiculous. That was a media set-up and there was no "Right side" to whore who can afford 80K in tuition but not $9 for birth control.

That article is one of the most BS articles I've seen lately.

A wake up call????

If anybody wants to see "meanness" just go look at the democrats and media allies and what they have said about President George Bush the LAST 12 YEARS.

Go over to MSNBC and CNN and listen to what they say.

Go to ANY of the democrat talk forums and read the Language they use when talking about repuublicans and conservatives.

What do the democrats call republicans and conservatives if they disagree with Obama POLITICS???? Racists. what does race have to do with any politicy?? Nothing, they just want to have something to hide behind and use.

The ONLY wake up call is for Americans to wake up to the democrat lies and what they have been OPENLY saying for YEARS,

I think hitting the reset(financial collapse) button is the only thing that will fix us. The country is beyond help or repair at this point.

Why can't the GOP be smart enough to start their 2016 primaries in state's that were red in 2012? Think about it. Why do blue Iowa and New Hampshire get to pick and often decide who our nominee is? Every election the primary schedule should be decided first in the red states - based on highest percentage going to the Republican candidate in the previous Presidential election.

Many of the blue states in 2008 and 2012 got to pick our non- conservative nominee and then support the Dems in the general.



Back to the election: I thought Romney was a lock to win, but...

Obama's weaknesses:

1. Obamacare
2. Strange non Christian religion
3. Foreign policy/ foreign wars


GOP candidate:
1. Romneycare
2. Mormon
3. Agreed with Obama practically 100% in the foreign policy debate.

Romney failed to carry the state he grew up in or the state he was governor of. His VP pick failed to carry his own state as well.

What they need is someone who a good conservative, not a over the top conservative,not a middle of the road moderate, Someone from humble backgrounds, not born with a silver spoon, someone(very important) people in lower and middle class can relate too, a "feel your pain" person, someone who real,tells it like it is, calls it what it is, and dont back down, someone who will excite the BASE to turn out and vote.

When this started pretty much everyone i knew and everyone on here, it was anyone BUT Romney.
I never thought he could win, even with Obama's 4 yr record.
After first debate, i thought Romney had a chance, by third debate, i felt he blew it, and had little to no chance to win.

With the reason's thier giving why we lost and the names they are already throwing around, show's me these GOP elites and so called experts still dont get it. Not looking good for 2016 at the moment.
You think after, 2008,the tea party movment, 2010, and now 2012 would have made even these dummy's GET IT by now, they dont!

The GOP base is too small to win a national election on its on, the base will vote republican no matter who the GOP pics. The GOP picks candidates from blue states with hopes that they can turn those states. Thats why ryan was chosen. Without a move to the middle, or a disaster on the democrats part, they have no chance of winning nationally. It's a matter of statistics. The base hates a moderate candidate, but without a move to the middle on the social issues, the GOP will have the house but that's it. The rural vote is not enough to win.

Wonder why it is than when dems lose elections no one ever suggests that they should be more conservative?
Never trust or take advice from someone who tells you to sacrfice your principles or lower your standards.

They are not looking out for you. They are demoralizing you
