Wow, the Republicans really don’t want to admit that the majority of voters don’t like what they are selling.
The pundits are saying that the Rmoney GOTV effort wasn’t good enough. Just over 70% of registered voters in my county voted. With 75K registered Republicans in the county, Money Boo Boo received 70K votes – more that 90% of the total registered Republicans. They voted, but there just aren’t enough of them.
Then they say they didn’t get their message out. Hey, I have a decently-sized mailbox, and it was constantly filled with ‘their message’. They filled the answering machine on my land line with their robo-calls. I listened to a stream of complaints from my Mother over all of the ads being run on TV for months. The problem was that their message did get out, and a majority of voters didn’t like it. It turns out that the normally reliably Republican Cubans, are no longer reliable, because of those who voted on election day, a majority voted for Zero.
The majority of voters in the US are women, and have been for some time. Latinos are the fastest growing demographic in the US. When your “message” specifically attacks women and Latinos you are going to lose a national election. You can’t attack the majority of voters and expect them to support you.
Kristen Neel – “I’m moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says.”
The Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, is an atheist who does back most of the goals of the left-wing Labor Party that she leads. She also ‘lives in sin’, and can get worked up over misogyny.
If Ms Neel wishes to go to Australia, she should feel free, but I would warn her that the animal life of the Land Down Under is not very forgiving of people who refuse to accept reality and live in a cloud of ignorance.
