Here's an honest lesson for the Republican Party that MUST be learned going forward. This was easily the most winnable general election of the last 50 years, and Romney and the GOP establishment LOST it! And the lesson, in a nutshell...
**GOP moderates (RINOs) lose general elections to leftists!**
Barack Obama has been worse than incompetent, he's been an unmitigated national disaster, and was a sitting duck as incumbent presidents go.
Mitt Romney got 3 MILLION fewer votes than the pathetic John McCain got in 2008, and 7 MILLION fewer than George W. Bush received in the 2004 election!! Allow those numbers to sink in...
Republican, conservative, and libertarian voters DON'T need a ride to the polls on election day. They DON'T need a great campaign organization like Obama's. They DON'T need handy, multi-colored voter guides, or party goodies to make it out to vote.
Republicans, conservatives, and libertarians need to be INSPIRED!!
Our votes cannot be bought, they need to be EARNED! Moderate RINOs inspire NO one, and the vote totals illustrate that lesson loud and clear. If Romney had only matched McCain's numbers, he would have taken the popular vote, and maybe even the electoral college?
For those of you focusing on demographics and seeking solace in the liberal media "race narrative", you're missing the red conservative elephant in the room.
