Probably calling this so-called 47% of America, who according to Romney, needs to use government welfare to protect their family from starvation and give their children a future lazy ass bums had something to do with it. I have never known someone who won an election by calling the half of their population idiots.
Republicans have never bothered to cater to minority groups but white people are no longer a majority in the USA and their % of the total population is going to shrink even further. If Republicans think they can still get into office without making any effort to get minority votes then they can kiss goodbye to Congress and the presidency because it will be an uphill struggle from here.
They have only themselves to blame. They thought that playing the rigid, uncompromising act would get them into office. It failed and if they keep it up for another 4 years, they will fail again and will keep failing as their voter base shrinks.
The Republican party is still convinced that the only voter demographic of interest is the straight white male. This is why they had no problem with dismissing - if not outright insulting - women, gays, and non-whites and the issues which pertain to those groups, and generally acting like their own narrow self-interests are the only things which matter.
They'll continue to blame the Democrats for 'pandering' to 'minority voters,' but as the straight white male vote becomes much less significant to the overall vote, they'll need to adapt, or else die an ignoble, lonely death.

Based on what I've already seen in this forum they're blaming the ignorant/bums which are people that don't pay income tax or something equally ridiculous since they're convince anyone that's against republican is so on the basis they want free handout rather then... ya know... because the republicans are a group of detached old fart that don't understand how a country works and therefore have no room running a country.

Indeed :/. I love how our local republitards just can't accept it their attitude that's chasing people away, not anything Obama is doing.
Obama could have said 0 this entire election and I still think he would have been re-elected based solely on the shit Romney and his ilk said in regards to stuff like low income people, rape, healthcare, gay marriage and other sensitive subjects.
Really just goes to show how much of manchildren they are. They can't even accept that they could have a hand in their failures, nope, its always everyone else being dumb! Because ya know women totally vote for Obama because they want handouts not because the representative of the republicans say stupid shit like women's don't get pregnant from "legitimate" rape because their bodies insta reject embryos after rape no couldn't be related to saying something so blatantly rapist apologetic and misogynistic.
In a sense. I don't know how "democratic" the Electoral College is, however. I am skeptical about them, to be honest, as I'm always scrutinizing government in general, but that relates more to the direction the USA is heading as opposed to who won the Presidency.
Aye. And people hate Bush, ya? Supposedly, he accelerated our descent, and therefore Obama will follow suit. Why? Because that is the apparent job of the Electoral College. The Popular Vote says we consent to this person accelerating us towards descent.
Or that is my interpretation of our modern-day politics.
Blaming themselves would be effectively accepting responsibility for their failings and screw-ups. Which would lead them to accept the reality that they will have to change the way they run their party.
And they can't do that. They won't admit they screwed up. It would lead to them having to change. And they don't WANT to change. They feel 'safer' in their denial and ignorance. But in the end, it's self-defeating and it cost them the election.
Idk but whatever they've been doing it just shows their total ignorance. Whether it be saying capitalism does not redistribute wealth, we need to learn to speak Islamic (Apparently....), America is fucked, Obama raised Government Spending by 20%, too many blacks were allowed to vote, and many things in between. It is no wonder that Republicans lost when you see what their base has to say after losing. Just a bunch of Butt Hurt Bitches.
Former "Saturday Night Live" star and comedian Victoria Jackson made headlines over the past year for some controversial comments, including a suggestion on her Internet talk show "Politichicks" that 1President Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and suggestions on "The Howard Stern Show" that gay marriage will "make God mad."
After Obama's victory, Jackson, in a flurry of Internet posts, announced the death of America, telling her followers that she "can't stop crying," and taking Christians to task for not voting.
"America died," she wrote on her Twitter feed.2 "I can't stop crying. America died."
Jackson also posted on her Facebook page an image of a tombstone that said, "RIP America."
Later, she tweeted, 3"Thanks a lot Christians, for not showing up. You disgust me."
1 Probably a big reason why the Republicans lost. They're not in touch with reality.
2 Somehow the right to vote is meaningless if your side/preference doesn't win. Again, out of touch with reality.
3 Apparently all the christians that voted Obama do not count.
As soon as the polls closed, Bill O'Reilly started blaming Hurricane Sandy. An Act of God. Giving the Democrat the victory. AN ACT OF GOD. I guess we know whose side God is on this time. WHERE'S YOUR GOD NOW, CONS?
Some are actually blaming Christie in NJ, which shows how laughably out of touch the 'leadership' for the right wing is.
The Republicans lost because they could only call on, cater to, and communicate with right/far right white religious dummies.
They lost the black vote (and not because Obama might be a little black), they lost the Latino vote (who are religious), they lost most of the female vote with their war on women, they lost the middle class vote with their penchant to suck corporate/billionaire cock, and despite their fanatical pro-Israel stance they even lost the Jewish vote.
I know the Muslim vote isn't a big key to the election, but they probably lost that too.
Obama won the youngest voters too. That's good for blue, bad for red.
I voted Gary Johnson and I am hoping his group hit the 5% mark so they're on all ballots in 2016.
