Republican right weeps over Obama's victory then begins internal civil war. The Guardian UK

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/10/us-elections-republicans-tea-party-conservatives

Excerpt:

Yet far from exiling Obama outside the US mainstream, many experts, now including leading conservative figures, believe the Republican party itself is being pushed into the political wilderness. The Republicans increasingly look like the party of angry, older white people. People like Schutte. And that does not work in America any more.

As Republicans sifted through the wreckage of the Mitt Romney campaign, they saw collapsing popularity among fast-emerging ethnic groups, such as Hispanics, and key social demographics, such as young people. In an economy struggling with 7.9% unemployment, where more than half of voters believed the country was heading in the wrong direction and against an unpopular incumbent, the once fiercely effective Republican party machine only managed to craft a devastating defeat.

1. I don't believe Obama was ever unpopular. That was Republican

and pundit fantasy.

2. Looks like the war the Republicans want to rage in America is against themselves

We'll just sit back, enjoy some cannabis, and watch. (a bit too early to say that, but)

6. Sadly the Republican Party is filled with bigots that are willing to

hold their noses and accept Hispanics and Asians--who they label as eager to work and assimilate (i.e., marry their moronic spawn) but hold to their longstanding belief that African Americans are the missing link between mankind and apes. The Republican outreach will not target or include African Americans because the Republican Party is not an inclusive rainbow party. It is the rejected portion of Orwellian counter thought. The Big Tent Party is over.

7. The party is over

Without a complete lobotomy the gop will never again regain power.

Their future best candidates all have zero charisma and/or low IQ's.

Compare Rubio or any of the dwarfs from this years primary to our guys n gals.
