For us, "winning elections" isn't the only goal. It's fixing broken ****. Civil rights, healthcare security, social safety net.

But thanks.

I guess starting your election campaign by dumping on 47% of the electorate is a bad strategy.

No, please. Go on cherry-picking.

Keep that head in the sand. We know you're dying to do it anyway.

Watching Bill O' Reilly. My but he's in a pissy mood. He tells Dick Morris that tonight is not the night to mess with him. Bill Bieckel is getting yelled at by him because Bill B. is telling him that the Republicans just don't get it, are in the old age as far as women and Bill B. is telling him why people did not like being called the 47% and Billy boy aint buying it and keeps interrupting. Ahhh good times!

I still think that number was just too low.

Without a doubt, many would vote Obama no matter what Romney did or said. He could do nothing to sway their vote. You disagree with that?

Now we'll see whether or not the Dems go for the strategy of dumping on 49% of the electorate. Based on recent history, the chances seem good.

Takeaways

Here are some of our takeways, in no particular order.
  • It's not just the economy, stupid. It's the whole package
  • Abandoning large constitutencies, like women, Latinos, and young voters is not a winning formula
  • The partisan identification in 2008 was not a freak accident. There are more Democrats than Republicans
  • The candidate matters: on paper Rick Perry and Mitt Romney were great, but the real men weren't
  • Nominating a sneering plutocrat who likes firing people and writes off half the country is not a wise move
  • If you can't release your tax returns because they are full of poison, don't run for President
  • There aren't enough billionaires to buy the election
  • Don't talk about gay marriage unless you are supporting it
  • And above all, don't talk about rape except maybe if you are proposing to castrate rapists

From the article:

Demographically, the Republican Party's base is angry, old white men.


And I liked this too:

Why the GOP didn't win
1. Romney was not a real conservative, but he was the only one left standing after the others crashed and burned
2. The liberal media (= NYT) were in the tank for Obama and refused to talk about Libya all day and night
3. The pollsters conspired to have skewed polls that discouraged all the faint-hearted Republicans from voting
4. It's all the fault of Hurricane Sandy because it cost Romney three days of campaigning
5. Well, its the fault of Sandy plus that traitor Chris Christie, who is only looking out for his own fat ass
6. The voters are too stupid to realize that when Obamacare kicks in, America will instantly become Cuba

According to US Census (through 2009):

http://www.census.gov/compendia/stat...es/12s0695.pdf

Median annual income for African American family in 2009 was $38,409.

For hispanics: $39,730.

For whites: $62,545.


Just taking a wild guess here, but maybe people with lower incomes are more likely to vote democratic.

But Romney said "middle class" was people making $250k and up.

93% worth?

Never mind you just PROVIDED evidence showing the same general economic class as Hispanics... so if we use that as a baseline, we can now quantify and conclude that roughly 20% of African Americans voted by race and the election was won by it.

I appreciate your efforts you to statistically prove my complaint, Old Dude, but we're all the losers here. This logic train leads to parties providing the best minority candidate instead of the best candidate for the job.

Yay, inequality.
