Breitbart's website has picked up on the incompetence of  Romney's campaign:  they bungled the get out the vote efforts of many thousands of volunteers.

But the Republicans fail to draw some obvious conclusions:  First, today's Republican party has become mired in incompetence.  Second, much of this incompetence should be traced directly to their "cheat for us" policies--where the term "us" is defined as those believing various superstitious delusions.  

If Mr. Romney and his team were so brilliant, how did they bungle such an important task?  

As the Breitbart piece shows, the Republicans still can't face the obvious conclusions they should reach after assessing their 2012 election efforts. It's sad the RW can't hold their own party and its policies up to the same scrutiny they apply to everyone else.  

In the 47% video, Romney tells his rich donors his campaign plans to exploit any attack on American interests for partisan political gain.  No matter what happens, they will use the attack as a basis to attack the sitting President. As Romney well knows, life ain't perfect:  he knew one can always find something to nitpick about. Fox is on board.  And over at Red State, they are running a poll as to whether they should try and impeach Obama over the Benghazi embassy attack.  

On the good side, so long as the Republicans advance bad ideas and nepotism as the basis for their parties' platform and leadership choices, salting this platform with fear mongering, phony claims about how well their policies worked in the past, and false attacks on everyone else, their platform should not attract many new voters and likely won't work well when enacted.  Only zealous fools would chose to run this country based on religious superstitions, however wide held, rather than things like Math and Science.  But its important for the rest of us to continue working.  The numbskulls have made it clear that they ain't going away.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Frank Rich has a great article on the GOP's denial: titled Fantasyland.

    Stupid as it is I can only see it working for us because if they never do any introspection, they'll never see whats wrong and then they'll never be able to fix it.
    What the GOP always does  after every defeat is just rebrand the same ol BS over a few years and then they're right back in it. they are outwardly blaming type people by nature, never admitting their own culpability. Convinced beyond the proof of facts,  they scoff at introspection.
    So watch for the rebrand.

    Happy just to be alive

  •  This is the function of the conservative bubble... (0+ / 0-) prevents one from seeing the obvious. We're headed for more GOP bullshit because Boehner and his band of pricks are going to start up right where they left off. Wait for it.

    Only the weak & defeated are called to account for their crimes.
