Conservative on Target! 11/9/12

Has The Republican Party Outlived Its Usefulness? Perhaps we have given the party leadership enough time – enough chances. Perhaps it is time to start over. Yet, I’m not sure the third party is the way to go, it would just split the anti-progressive vote. However, if we look at the party history, we will see the Republican Party rose up in opposition to slavery, and eventually replaced the Whigs who had outlived their usefulness on the political landscape. It may just be that the party that gave us Ronald Reagan has outlived its usefulness and needs to be replaced. [To put it another way, what else do you do when no existing party continues to represent you and likely never will? Not vote? – JS]

   INSIDE ORCA: HOW THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN SUPPRESSED ITS OWN VOTE: As Republicans try to explain their Election Day losses in terms of policy, tactics, and strategy, one factor is emerging as the essential difference between the Obama and Romney campaigns on November 6: the absolute failure of Romney’s get-out-the-vote effort, which underperformed even John McCain’s lackluster 2008 turnout. One culprit appears to be “Orca,” the Romney’s massive technology effort, which failed completely
   In fact, Orca diverted scarce resources that would have been better used physically moving voters to polling places. By a rough calculation, Romney lost the election by falling 500,000 to 700,000 votes short in key swing states. If each of the 37,000 volunteers that had been devoted to Orca had instead brought 20 voters to the polls in those states over the course of the day, Romney would have won the election.
   There was no Plan B; there was only confusion, and silence. [This is almost incomprehensible. The GOP’s turnout effort relied on untested technology? – JS]






The Only Thing Comforting About Going
Into A Second Term With Obama




"Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what's right." -- Isaac Asimov [Great advice for today’s progressives!]

MORE RINO IDIOCY! Tea party? What tea party? -- Speaker of the House John Boehner tells Diane Sawyer who is boss in his caucus. TheDC's Alexis Levinson reports: "There is no tea party caucus independent of the Republican caucus in the House, Speaker John Boehner said Thursday in an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer. Asked about the tea party, and whether they were 'going to be by your side for this,' Boehner suggested that there was no major differentiation between tea party Republicans in the House and the Republican caucus as a whole.' ... 'But do they come back changed by this election?' Sawyer asked. 'Well, listen, I think this has been the most misreported story of my two years' tenure,' Boehner replied. 'We don't have a tea party caucus to speak of in the House. All of us who were elected in 2010 were supported by the tea party.' ... Officially, there is a Tea Party Caucus, started by Rep. Michele Bachmann. It has 55 members. But Boehner is evidently not referring to that group specifically.
