IMO, the GOP made a calculated risk when they pushed social/religious ideals that they knew were not gonna get majority support. they apparently thought people hated Obama enough to swallow the social agenda. if they would have stuck to the smaller govt./fiscal responsibilty message, it would have turned out much different.

I think maybe all our Conservative legislators should just vote “Present” on every single freaking Obama administration bill that comes up in the next 4 years, and let the pieces fall where they may.

Exit Poll: percentage of Obama voters who believe that Republicans want to BAN birth control pills -> 62%.

The left did a good job of getting their lies out.

Look at the map that shows every county of the country, and which ones went red or blue. Basically a handful of areas determined the election results. You will never get these counties to vote Republican. The only real strategy Republicans have is to win every possible voter they can in swing states by getting huge voter turn out. If this stategy is successful they can win, but even then it will be a fairly tight victory. However, a blatantly biased media and Hollywood celebrites make this very difficult, especially considering the Dancing with the Stars and welfare mentality of many Americans today.

The problem is that in order to win Republicans have to have an unbelievable good candidate who performs an exemplary job campaining, and even then this candidate will win by the slimmest of margins. The Democrats do not have to perform at this level to win. They can have a weak sub-par candidate and still win. So, a marginal Democrat candidate usually will usually beat good Republican candiate.

Conclusion: Republicans can win, though it will not be often or by large margins, and an occassional victory by the smallest of margins will not bring the country back to the center, let alone to the right, and Rebublicans will continue to lose ground over time.

And eventually, in order to become more competitive, Reublicans will embrace many ideas that are currently liberal ideas. They will start with social issues, but this won't be enough to draw very many from the Democrat party, so they will eventually embrace many fiscal ideas of the Democrat party as well. When that occurs the Reblican party will truly be gone. Democrats will have won, game, set, match!

Also, think how far left our country has moved socially.

15 years ago the best Clinton could get was don't ask don't tell. Today we have states that have passed laws allowing gay marriage. Many of you on this site support gay marriage. Did you 15 years ago?

In the early 90's Hillary Care was overwhelmingly routed. Today, we have Obamacare, and I think most see complete nationalized health care as inevitable.
