    Lost in DC,

    Interesting comment about science, because last I checked it was the Republicans who are the anti-science party.

    Excellent post Fred44.

    As long as Republicans continue to blame losing on everyone but themselves, as long as they continue the rhetoric of "givers" and "takers" and continue to believe that nearly half of this great country is made up of freeloaders, takers, and lazy welfare queens...... then they will continue to lose elections. Fine by me.

    They should have had this election in the bag. Imagine how catastrophic the loss would have been had they been running against a more popular incumbent and a thriving economy.

    As a moderate who's political beliefs are all over the spectrum, I wanted to vote for someone other than Obama, the Republicans quickly reminded me however of why I am no longer a Republican. I was very disappointed in Romney and particularly the 47% nonsense, that was the final straw that drove me to vote for Obama.

    As far as voter fraud is concerned, this comes up every single time that Republicans lose a race; I have yet to see any hard evidence that isn't quickly debunked validating the claim. Oh let me guess.... it's the lame stream media keeping it hidden and under wraps?

    I don't understand why lost continues to feel that you can shame someone into voting your way. It didn't work before, and won't in the future. I doubt lost knows anything about MSNBC, but I bet he's quite up to date on the latest Fox News accusation.

    "classless, political illiterates of this country" That's funny, because you couldn't have thought of a more perfect description of all the typical MSNBC viewers

    "classless, political illiterates of this country" That's funny, because you couldn't have thought of a more perfect description of all the typical Faux news/Glenn Beck listeners. Like the folks who troll the des news comment boards looking to spew the days crazy they learned on the radio. Remember mitt-mentum? Wasn't he supposed to get 300 electoral votes and win the popular vote by 10 percent? Isn't that what your masters voice told you to believe? When it comes to the entertainment arm of the republican party, are they ever right? Or are they just fading into complete irrelevancy, you know, like Mitt?

    Republicans lost the presidency, lost seats in the house and senate, and as long as they keep blaming everyone and anyone but themselves and their policies they will continue to lose elections they should win.

    Telling Americans that only the stupid and the lazy vote for democrats is not a winning strategy. Telling Americans that giving the wealthiest Americans bigger tax cuts is going to help middle class America when it hasn't worked the three previous times isn't a winning strategy.

    I would argue that there is a segment in America that voted democrat not because they liked their candidates policies and positions, but because they viewed them as the lesser of two evils.

    Until the republicans get 51% of America to agree with their policies they aren't going to win no matter how much time the spend on talk radio telling each other they are right and the democrats are wrong.

    it seems the more degrees we hand out in Diversity sutdies, women's studies, self-esteem, basket-weaving, etc, and the further we fall behind in math, econ, science, etc. the more we vote dem.

    If the only thing that Democrats have to rely on a one false narrative after another, then they can easily dupe the classless, political illiterates of this country, all whom vote Democrat. But for those of us who see serious political consequences in our economy and foreign policy by this election, we have to look at the sober reality that our Constitutional rights and liberties are in serious jeopardy. Coupled that by a party that engages in massive voter fraud then you have a formula for an economic and social disaster the likes of which we have never seen since the founding of this country. Being lead by a so-called leader who cannot lead and has a destructive agenda, we are facing an almost impossible task of turning around this disaster. With this election, the resulting disaster is inevitable.

    If Mitt Romney had won and had a meeting like that in Park City, the press would be all over him for going to a Posh Hotel in Park City while people are going hungry due to his spending and not caring. The Press likes this type of event to show how caring the DNC leadership is to the people of the world.

    President Clinton's only time he came to Utah in 8 years was to a high end gated Posh place, also, when he was hiding from the Press during the Monica Lewinsky and impeachment advertisements all around the world. He really cares for people also and is not very rich with their millions and millions and making his $200,000 a speech or event.

    Meanwhile, in other news, the Korean Central News Agency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is reporting that their archaeologists have found a unicorn lair. This lair is believed to be the homestead of the unicorn ridden by King Tongmyong.

    It is on the internet so it must be true, right conservatives?

    The article trumps how the Dems barraged voters with lies about a great man, Romney, bussed its apathetic voters to the polls, got them to vote for a terrible president and party platform of gay rights and welfare. And they are proud of that?
    So we now have an Ineptocracy; A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by confiscating from a diminishing number of producers.
    And Democrats are celebrating this?!

    "St. Lucie County, Florida reported voter turnout as high as 166% in one precinct and no precinct lower than 113%."

    You may want to get caught up with this. Weeks ago this was explained. Most of those ballets were 2 pages long and were counted twice, hence why the turnout appeared to be 166%. In reality, it was half that.

    Sorry, but your claims of "voter fraud" are false. There wasn't anymore voter fraud in this election than in any other.

    You folks lost. Get over it.

    St. Lucie County, Florida reported voter turnout as high as 166% in one precinct and no precinct lower than 113%.
    Ohio reported 100 precincts with 99% voting for Obama, a statistical impossibility.
    Some wards in Pennsylvania, where Republican poll watchers were forcibly removed, showed 30% higher turnout than government numbers predicted and returned over 99% votes for Obama.

    If coleman has proof of massive voter fraud, he's welcome to share it with the rest of humanity. It shouldn't be hard to prove if it's in the millions, which it would have to be in order to flip the election. Really - go ahead. You'd be hailed as the next Woodward and Bernstein. On the other hand, if it's just something someone said on the radio, then you have to ask why these theories are broadcast on such an unreliable medium.

    What many people (including news professionals) choose to ignore and/or don't understand what this "victory" truly is: an acknowledgement by a majority of Americans that "We The People" have turned our backs on the Principles our grandparents and forefathers followed to established this country, that, when followed, can and have made our country great and good and prosperous by the hand of "nature's God", whom the democratic party indisputably and deliberately and collectively turned their backs on at their last convention.
    The democratic party rejoices now but sooner or later they and everyone else will mourn their turning away from unchanging and immutable principles established by our creator and from the creator.
    Choices/Elections have consequences. This choice will bring far more misery and sorrow, above and beyond what we are experiencing now, not just to our nation but to the rest of the world.
    Sarc. congrats democrats!

    Democrats are so deluded. How can you back someone who repeatedly lies to the American public and hasn't kept one promise he has made.It never ceases to amaze me that like lemmings the American people can be so duped into believing in someone who is so corrupt. This man has ignored federal laws and has proceeded to act more like a dictator than a leader. He clearly is not capable of running this government as has been seen by the fiscal situation this country is in and yet he is looked at as a god who will save everyone by giving people who don't want to work whatever their hearts desire. Please, can you say that you really believe him? He has already done more to harm this country than any other previous president. Democrats refuse to see the fiscal problems or the other real problems that are taking place but only look at their personal issues, such as abortion, homosexual marriage, etc. Stop trying to fix the little things, look at the fact that we are about to go under as a country and Barack Obama is being led by wicked men to do their bidding.

    The problem is that conservatives have no reality based vision of what they want America to be. Grover Nordquist wants a weak federal government, with low taxes. This sounds a lot like Mexico, how's that work out? The Religious Right wants something approaching a theocracy, maybe they are thinking along the lines of Iran? The Koch brothers advocate for weaker environmental regulations. Does any one remember leaded gas, and burning rivers from the 1960's?

    Lefties look to the best of Western Europe, and say that America should emulate some of their successes, but with an American flavor, you may not agree, but it makes sense.

    For the life of me I can't figure out what conservatives envision for America.

    That 50 state strategy included massive voter fraud of a scale never before seen. Romney would have won otherwise. We can't win when the other guys cheat.
