    You made posts about how Romney was going to win. You posted polls that supported your claim while blithely ignoring poll after poll that refuted your claims (they're biased polls, you said.) Courtesy of Drudge, you linked to articles by Dick Morris, Peggy Noonan, George Will, Karl Rove, etc. predicting that Romney would win.

    I've got some advice for you. Step away from the Drudge Report. Turn off the political news stations, especially Fox News. Turn off Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mike Gallagher, and whomever else you've immersed yourself in for the past years.

    Why?

    Because this time they were wrong. Wrong about the stuff they talk about every single day of their existence. Because they are biased. But most importantly, because what you will get from them now is hate, and spin, and vows of revenge. You are going to get anger and vitriol. This is not what you need right now.

    Do your blood pressure a favor and lay off the right-wing talking heads for a while.

    I will...right after I watch O'Reilly interview Dick Morris tonight - LOL!

    I think the biggest lesson the GOP needs to learn from this election is how to better woo the Hispanic vote. The GOP will never win another election if they can't win Florida, and you can't win Florida without Hispanics. That's why I predict Rubio will be on the ticket in 2016. Or it could be Jeb Bush.

    Exactly! But not Jeb Bush. The Republicans cannot run another rich white guy that got life handed to him on a silver platter. We have just seen that whites are no longer the controlling voter bloc in Presidential elections. It's not just Florida--nationwide 1 in 10 voters are Hispanic, 1 in 6 voters are black. The Republicans need a candidate that can appeal to these people. Maybe Rubio is the one. But it sure isn't an entitled old, rich, white guy.

    Folks! I don't listen to Limbagh, Beck, Gallagher, or any talking heads on radio. I don't read the Drudge report.

    But if you want to see hate read ITL's OP. If you want to see hate watch MSNBC with Ed Shlultz, Chris Matthews and a bunch of far, far left Marxists. If you want to see hate read the Huffington Post. If you want to see hate look at the face of Harry Reid. If you want to see hate look at the face of Barak Hussein Obama and an his Marxist crowd from Chicago.

    That being said I don't blame any of them for Romney's defeat. I blame all those professing Christians who ignored the teaching of their Savior and voted for the pro death party and their rabid abortionist leader, Barak Hussein Obama! May God have mercy on them and on all of us!

    So being an "entitled, old, rich, white guy" is only bad if he is a Republican. John Kerry, the dem candidate in 2004, was far richer than Romney and he married most of his wealth, not earn it like Romney did!

    Once pro abortion always pro abortion, right CTB.

    The future is not the Marxist ideology of Obama it is the restoration of the Constitutional Republic which you and like minded leftists are determined to destroy. I have believed for years, given the adoration of FDR and Kennedy by democrats, that they really want a king, a dictator, a demigod. They are like the Russian peasants, willing to sell themselves into serfdom so they want have to fend for themselves. Ole massa goin do it!

    I predicted a Rominy win and would like to know why you feel all that did depended on Drudge? What and where is Drudge? I don't watch fox News except last night to get a fair evaluation of who was winning instead of the biased liberal CBS. One article I read was by Michale Barone, but I was watching the Rasmuesen polling which is fairly acurate in most cases. Ramussen had a last minute change in the New Hampshire poll on Tuesday and showed the President winning untill then it showed Mr. Rominy winning. They had Ohio 50 to 48% for Rominy even on Monday. So I was basing mine on Rasmuessen. Who are the others you mention I know of Beck, Hannity and Rush don't listen to them but know of them and who are the others?

    I didn't say I hated them or that I hated anyone. I said they were wrong and then I merely made a prediction based on past observances.

    The Drudge Report is a right wing news story compilation web site.

    http://www.drudgereport.com/

    Basically it trawls the internet looking for articles that denigrate liberals (and therefore Democrats) and posts the articles on one page.

    Rasmussen is the 'go to' poll for right wingers because his results tend to favor Republicans, probably because of the questionable polling practices they use. For example, Rasmussen does not use cell phone owners in their polls. That is a significant mistake since younger people most often have cell phones and they lean Democratic.

    As to Rasmussen being accurate, well check this out:

    I didn't know who Michael Gallagher was until just this morning when I heard him on the radio. He's a right wing talk show host. Today he was vowing to get revenge in 2014 elections.

    So sue us, ITL. We were hopeful. The truth is, the demographics of America have changed and white working people are in the minority. The people who carried the vote for obama (blue) are the inner city votes and California (and the liberal NE).

    There is no going back to what our nation once was. The people have spoken and they don't care about jobs, just freebies. They don't care about jobs, just free birth control. They don't care about corruption or Americans murdered in Benghazi. They don't care about Fast and Furious.

    All they care about is freebies.

    I will never vote again. The Republican party might as well fold up.

    Sad, but true for a good chunk of the electorate.

    It might as well, if it is going to keep trotting out folks like McCain or Romney as its nominee.
