Two things were confirmed this past week: that Mitt Romney truly despises the poor and middle class, and that most Republican leaders despise Mitt Romney.
The truth is, Romney will go down as perhaps the worst Republican candidate in history, which is why so many of the party's prescient voices behind closed doors clamored for anyone but Mitt, but it was Mitt with whom they got stuck after the rest of the primary crazies imploded ('ceptin' Jon Huntsman who, if the GOP base wasn't so radical, might've actually become president). Now they get to distance themselves from him like a dreaded plague.
The Democratic Party provides empty promises of power, protection, and welfare to black people in exchange for votes. Not only is being black about skin color; it’s also about your political affiliation. If you are a black person, it is assumed you are a Democrat; no questions asked.

Agree with Des, "a little late". But, now it's time to see how the GOP refashions itself; my guess (and I'm always right ), they start by picking more ethnic candidates for the next round to appeal to immigrants and shifting US demographics. Expect Rubio, Jindal, and Sanchez to take center stage with backing from Barbour and Christie. In fact, just look to Florida senate and congress for the next round of GOP'ers.
It's so damn predictable.
Also agree with FissionSurplus, the GOP threw this race on purpose.

Well, I'll bite.....I said before the election that the GOP did not want to win, and the proof is whom they chose.
If they wanted to win, they wouldn't have sabotaged their own primary and shut out Ron Paul. They wanted to lose, for whatever reason. Just like the 2008 election, in which they picked a nasty old war hawk and a complete ditz (McCain / Palin), this time, they picked a guy that just wasn't going to cut it.
The real issue here is, not that Mittens had "loser" written all over him, but why the GOP is screwing itself into oblivion. Perhaps a "one party system" a la communist countries is in the cards.....?
