The republicans have some work to do with their own house. I don't think there's any denying that. However, thinking they are done as a national party is wishful thinking. This was a 50/49 or maybe 51/48 election when the dust settles. Granted, this was a tough landscape for Obama and he still won. Some of the republicans wounds were self inflicted and therefore correctable. Not ever mentioning the word rape would be a good start. The day after the election everyone wants to make bold proclamations about the future of one party or another, but the truth is usually not as "sexy". Politics shift back and forth and the party needs to learn from it and adjust.
Republican party will always remain.
We are a nation of many cultures, and one of those cultures being political parties. We live by our parties, and the principles that envelop them. Yes, these parties create discource within society, but that discourse gives us a sense of identity. You can't just eliminate history, and that is what the Republican party is.
Did anybody see the article on yahoo about. Arpaio getting re-elected and read the commnets. lol Even after Hispanics voted 70% Dem. Worte that there human beings and have righs as human beings, an got all tumbs down, I mean like 100. For basic human rights? Got damn. lmao...... it's going to be 90% for dems in 4 years I guarantee. lol
Mighty confident/arrogant for someone whose party just lost 4 of the last 6 general elections, and it would have been the 5th if not for the Supreme Court. Last time the GOP won without a Nixon or Bush on the ticket was 1928.Originally Posted by Longhornfan1234

Scratch that. I don't want to know. We've got 4 years for that and every contender on a day-to-day basis is just one major gaffe away from being politically irrelevant.
The day after Bush won in '04, the DNC was already hyping up Evan Bayh who is now politically extinct.
French writer Alexis de Tocqueville warned about when visiting this fledgling democracy in the early 19th century – that this "American republic will endure until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."
if you were following the thread you would have seen that I had to be corrected becasue i hadnt attentively read a post addressed to me.
Now THIS is addressed to you.
This post is indicitive of the lack of criotical thinking and blind alegiance that gets republicans laughed out of the room.
No one really is against Voter Id pal.
what they were upset about is that the republicans instituted the attempts to change the law so close to the election.
See, if it was REALLY about votre fraud, they would have been pushing for it right after the 2010 elections.
that was just one of the supresion attempts. then they tried to linit early voting, then they tried to purge the registration rosters , then they tried to limit the hours of operation in Democartic counties, then they tried to disqualify any ballot with any grammatical error in spelling on it.
See it has long been known that when you limit the numbers of Voters, republicans seem to win.
How you could try and twist this into a Rigging issue on the DEMS just shows how led you are by the Murdoch news empire...wake up Neo
Unless Obama ****s up bigtime in his second term, if Hillary runs in 2016, she has an amazing chance to become the first female president.. And if that's the case, then that would be 3 general election losses in a row for the GOP..
its because the conservatives love to harp on issues like gay marriage, and all that **** no one cares about. Not only are their more minorities. There are more people who aren't religious as in more logical people. They aren't going to vote based off a big book.
Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all
The Republican Party is going nowhere. That's simply a pipe-dream. They'll have to readjust their strategy (read: pander to Latinos a little more nationally), and they'll be just fine.
