    All over the internet the analysis seems to be that the Republicans lost this election because they lied so much.  A notion I find preposterous.  I feel that had the Republicans told the truth, it would have been 60/40 for Obama.

    But because of the effectiveness of the lies, and the main street media's mostly compliance in those lies, they got 49% of the vote.

    So the lesson isn't that the Republicans should not lie, it should be in my mind they need to lie better.

    There are not enough rich for the Republicans to win otherwise.
