When the base of your entire party pays close attention to people like Limbaugh, Hannity, Oreilly, Beck, Bachmann, Palin or those clowns on Fox and Friends, you have a serious problem. Modern America has already dismissed these clowns.
The fact that a guy like Mike Huckabee (Gomer Pyle) is even known in 2012 is absurd. Combine that with "celebrities" like Dennis Miller, Lee Greenwood, Clint Eastwood and Victoria Jackson supporting are your party. Youre behind.
I'd LOVE it if the Rs caught up to the rest of America by 2016. I used to like that we had two competent and somewhat relevant political parties. We just dont any more. The R's have been painted as dinosaurs and its mostly true, sadly.
Just keep throwing up guys like Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio. I think youve seen where that gets you.
I truly believe your outdated stance on social issues is what lost this election for the Rs. That has to change.
That, and nominating guys like Romney. Geez. Seriously.
I call you on the loonies on your side of the isle, like Michael Moore, Jerimiah Wright, etc., and raise you every anchor/host/co-host/morning show host on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, and shows like Saturday Night Live, the View (just to name a few) and almost every newspaper in this country.
While Fox and talk shows like Limbaugh/Hanedy have the highest ratings than any liberal media sources, AS A WHOLE, the conservative media outlets don't reach a fraction of the liberal media outlets do. Plus, the major "news" outlets reach millions more and get more and more left biased every year. I mean, I googled Romney/Bullying and Obama/Bengahzi a while back...and I got something like 8 million more hits on Romney bullying somebody when he was a kid, than I got on stories about Obama and the Bengahzi fiasco. Now, try and tell me there was no media bias there.
As far as views being outdated...hmmm...then explain to me why the Reps swept the country in the mid-terms in 2010, especially states like here in WI, where lefties were swept from office, like the collective flushing of a huge toilet? Where their views outdated then?
No, I don't think the GOP's stance on social issues are outdated. Personally I think Romney was far too nice in the debates and on the airwaves. I think if he would have gone negative on BO %90 of the time...like BO did on Romney...I think he would have done much better. Instead he took the high road, which obviously didn't serve him well. He should have kept hitting BO on Bengahzi, the economy, Bengahzi, the economy, Bengahzi, and then back to the economy again, and again, and again...and should not have given BO a chance to breath.
Instead, Romney (and Ryan) played nice...tried to play nice in back alley knife fight...they/he tried to be honorable in a contest that has no honor...and in the end, it ultimately lost him them the election.
