    is that the leadership of the party that were the authors of this disaster don't seem to be suffering any consequences for their lack of oversight.
    John Cornyn presided over the stunning Republican defeat in the Senate, where Republicans not only failed to capture any of the 25 seats the Democrats were defending, but actually lost two seats!
    Mitch McConnell completely failed on his "most important political goal- to make sure Barack Obama is a one term president".
    Romney's campaign was riddled with advisers that ignored reality in favor of telling the candidate that he really was winning, to the point where Romney did not even write a concession speech.
    These are the leaders of the establishment Republicans, the money boys, the brains of the outfit.
    And they failed. Completely, utterly failed.

    “We are not a nation that says ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We are a nation that says ‘out of many, we are one.’” -Barack Obama

      pretty good this time around.  

      And they were positioned to win on a variety of levels.

      Early on in the GOP primary campaign, here on DKos people were wondering why the Romney camp kept missing cues.  

      Evidently they didn't have much competition in the primaries so they never had to hone a really sharp operation.  

      Then they tried to step in to the ring with Barack Obama and it looks like that matchup didn't go so well.  

      "And they failed.  Completely, utterly failed."  Bingo.
