Republicans Aren't Taking Reality So Well
- Their private bubble (where they had Romney winning by a landslide) was burst in spectacular fashion.
- Karl Rove, Mr. "We Won Florida in 2000 Fair & Square So Get Over It Liberals" had a political heart attack. Mainly because he took a lot of shady money from rich Republicans and didn't deliver.
- RedState is reacting like they normally do, TBH.
- The Romney Campaign was apparently hypnotized.
Here is the bottom line, GOP, as this Daily Kos diarist put it:
There are not enough angry white men left, have you got that? However there are plenty of young women to keep you out of office for the foreseeable future.
There are not enough angry heterosexual Christian white men left. Until you start accepting women, gays, Muslims, African-Americans, Latinos, bisexuals, Atheists and others, your tent will get smaller. Your fiscal and social philosophy needs to modify on a state-to-state level.
It's not because "you're not running enough conservatives." That's what the Tea Party was supposed to fix right? And they cost your party the Senate.
Oh, and stop denying reality. The fact that Team Romney skewed their own polls to the point that they though that they could encroach on fairly blue states speaks volumes. If you're listening to Glenn Beck's advice of moving to more Red States, go ahead; if you're lucky you'll bump up the electoral votes in one of the Dakotas to a whopping 6! Yay!
Seriously, folks: America is changing; it's time for the GOP to change with it.
