  •  Wait for claim that Romney caused GOP downfall (11+ / 0-)

    When you pull out all the stops, and spend hundreds of millions of dark money, you forget that the media buys only go so far without an actual message, and the usual race-baiting and wealth fantasies will not keep cutting it forever. When you lie so reflexively that you stand out even among modern Republicans, you're forgetting that young voters fact-check while they listen to you. When your campaign funds voter suppression groups so ham-handedly that the media connects the dots before the election, it only makes us want to vote more.

    When you do all that, and still lose? The GOP base might not mind that kind of behavior, but that kind of behavior will not replenish the GOP base as it ages out of the electorate. So, will it have been Romney's fault that the GOP died as a national party? Some pundits may claim so. But, before you answer that, think back to the primaries.

    •  In the letters I wrote to NC women (4+ / 0-)

      Encouraging them to vote, I didn't waste any ink talking about Romney.  The Republican party's extreme positions on women, war, taxes, health care, and did I say women? are all the ammo I needed.

        They'll say Romney just wasn't conservative enough to fire up the base, or they just didn't pray hard enough or something. Anything but admit that they're lapsing into regional party status on their way to historical footnote.
