    Did the GOP blow the 2012 election in almost every way possible?  Of course they did.  From their clown car cavalcade of candidates to Thurston Howell III as their nominee w/ Eddie Munster as his running mate to the disastrous RNC, they shot themselves in both feet and in both arms, too.

    OTOH, OWS pushing class issues to the front surely helped.  In fact, while we'll never know who took the infamous "47%" video of Romney, that videotaping was very much within the spirit of Occupy.   Class issues are always a winner for Dems, and OWS was the only outside force vigorously pushing class issues into the debate.

    A national election has so many moving parts that one can never analyze or appreciate all of them.  In this election, however, both GOP incompetence and Occupy were clearly 2 of the moving parts.  

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

      this election was lost over the summer.  it's as simple as that.

      they defined Mitt early on in the swing states before the 47% tape even hit the air .
