Well the American people have spoken 


And they've said they like trillion dollar deficits, high unemployment, and more dependency on the government.  I guess maybe I need to get w/ the program.  Time to quit my job, live off the government, and let it worry about my problems.

It took us ~ 15 years to get out of the Great Depression. Unemployment has started to steadily drop and we have started to see real talk about budget cuts/proposals (see Simpson-Bowles).

Why do conservatives fail to see this?

Re: Well the American people have spoken 


I took one at Vandy a long time ago but I think I slept through the class where we learned to spend more money for interest on our debt than we do on our own education.  But hey, now that Ive got all this free time, I'll be able to catch up on my studies.  I bet I wont even have to pay for the class.

Well when World War 3 eventually happens and the government is able to finally create demand instead of hoping it materializes out of thin air then come find me.  I'll be at the beach drinking a beer.

Nice answer. When you get serious about discussing today's economic conditions come find me.

You do that.  Quit your job and try to live off the government.  Let me know how that works out for you.  

While you're at it, feel free to let unemployed veterans looking for jobs after getting home from Iraq and Afghanistan know that you are tired of them living off of your hard earned dollars.  Same for those lazy Vietnam guys too.  And, of course, the elderly don't even try to go back to work after they turn 70.  Don't get me started on those folks.  Amirightorwhat?

As the kids are keen to say these days....^^^^^THAT^^^^^^

I think this is the election where Americans started to wake up to the ration of BS that's been shovelled out for so many years.  These are difficult and complicated times.  Simple answers and talking points are not going to get us through them.

I truly hope this wakes up the GOP. They need to realize a party that has nothing to offer young people, women, and minorities that nominates boring, old, out of touch dudes with no actual plan or solution to the country's problems isn't going to get it done. Romney was always a mediocre candidate. Was anyone really all that jazzed about voting for him? I know I wasn't.

I don't think its necessarily within the GOP's control.   Liberals dominate academia and the entertainment industry, which is where most young people get their miniscule amount of information (or misinformation) regarding politics and government.

Fair point about young people. It was basically impossible for Romney to capture young people the way Obama could and did. However, the way the GOP ignores women and latinos is preposterous and will lead to loss after loss unless they structurally change.

I would add... they don't just ignore those groups, but quite often attack them which pisses those people off beyond retrieval and sends quite a bit of misinformation to their already blathering constituents.

They don't ignore women.   The demoncrats are able to manufacture a bogus war on women, which is actually highly insulting to women with a brain.  And when the media is in your pocket, you can control the terms of debate and the election.


The demoncrats was actually an inadvertent typo, but in the spirit of bhoyal i decided to keep it.

The GOP allowed the Democrats to wage that war. The GOP allowed people like Akin and Mourdock to run and stay in the race when they made idiotic comments so democrats could paint republicans as the same way. Romney allowed himself to be defined as the guy who will make you turn to having a back alley abortion if you get pregnant instead of redefining himself and his stance. In my opinion Ann Romney, and important GOP women like Susana Martinez, Condi Rice, Nikki Haley were not vocal enough. Romney and the GOP never intelligently discussed issues such as abortion, birth control, and equal pay. These issues were brushed aside and it was a strategic error.

Another thing is young people aren't in the real world and aren't facing the reality of Obama's tax increases and the national debt. . . and when they do it will be too late.

Re: Well the American people have spoken 


Ann Romney - sort of a rambling housewife, who even if she was articulate, could never hope to connect with the average American woman

Susana Martinez - a moderate Democrat who switched to the GOP for the same reason hot women get into sports reporting: there aren't many of her ilk there, and she saw a faster road to the top

Condi Rice - totally useless on any issue that affects people within the US borders

Nikki Haley - loved by the national right, HATED by people of both parties in her own state

The problem is you don't have much to offer.

Your post is total BS.   But maybe you're right.   These women can't offer the instructions like Michelle, who knows what's good for everyone and will see that the government requires it.  

By the way, if a republican made the statement you did they would be excoriated in the media for waging war on women.
