    I don't care what is important to republicans. they lost, big, maybe for a generation. too many ways to get info today instead of tv "news" and I am encouraged that people under the age of 40 do not get their info from cable news and educate themselves.

    this election, the republicans were in your face and blatant and did not try to hide what they were doing and they have paid for it.

    there are more of "us" than them. they spent a combined $2.5 billion and could not buy the presidency.

    people get what republicans are about and have to give them credit for mobilizing and motivating democrats. that they did well.

    and they did themselves no favors with the benghazi witchhunt. they made a mistake picking on susan rice..big time.

    mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.

    •  Yes voting trends look good for Dems long term (7+ / 0-)

      for the White House at least.  But we actually had an exceptional year given the economic headwinds.

      * When you total the vote margin among 4-5 of the closest Obama state victories we won by 400,000 votes.

      * Are we going to have as strong of an OFA organization next election?  Will we be able to pull in the same money without Obama?

      * Are Repubs going to have another ridiculous candidate next time making idiotic and outrageous statements (eg. 47%, Chrysler moving to China, etc.)  or will they go more main stream and less crazy in tone next time?

      And then there are the gerrymanders that make taking the House back more of a challenge.  If we don't hold all 3- WH, Senate, House -  moving forward will always be a much bigger struggle.

      This is far from over and the ignorant and/or fickle elements of the American public are still huge presence.  

      I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
