1.) The biggest point for me is the Tea Party. Republicans, the Tea Party is killing you. Distance yourself from them. I gained a lot of respect for the American people and a bit for the Republican Party as a whole for not electing/re-electing these morons. The worse thing they did was open their mouths. If you are a Tea Partier, please…keep talking in public…
The Tea Party crushed Republican hopes. Republicans thought they would do great in the Senate races but did horrible.
Akin lost horribly to a beatable candidate after his “legitimate rape” comments.
Richard Mourdock was defeated badly after his “all pregnancies are a gift from God” statement.
In Mass, Warren pounded the incumbent Brown after his campaign of personal attacks.
In the House…
Allen West appears to have lost his seat in Florida.
Michele Bachmann nearly lost her seat in the House, winning by less than 4,000 votes or 51% AND this is after making a run for President. (Edit:Putting this on hold for now. It is now 50-50 with Graves leading Bachmann.)
2.) 6 Billion dollars spent on this election and the results were nearly the same as they were 4 years ago…
3.) Saving the auto industry made a difference. Many do not agree with it, but those that were working in it and lived in the areas where the economy was affected would disagree. The auto industry gave Obama Ohio.
4.) Republicans need to take a different approach. This was their last shot. With the economy in the shape it is in, a high unemployment rate, and a soaring national debt, it was their election to win. Times are changing. They need to start catering more to gays, women, and minorities. They need to come back to the center and start working with the Dems.
5.) Fox News is always wrong
But please, please, please, for the sake of America, get along and get things done. Obama is the President for another 4 years and cannot run again. The war is over. Work together and get things done so we can progress into the future.
