1. They were convinced Mittens would win?

Who convinced them? The majority of the polls clearly indicated Obama would win. Maybe they should look at reality instead of the imaginary world Fox feeds them.

17. I think most of the interviewees were Mormon and no doubt, they 'knew' Mitt was going to win.

2. A big problem is that when the Republicans talk about the "problems" of our country,

they aren't talking about the same problems we are.

We think the problems is too little money for education and social programs.

They think the problem is high taxes and the deficit.

You can't work together to solve a problem if you don't agree on what the problem is.

3. Sort of.

I doubt many of us are happy with high taxes and the deficit.

I doubt many of them (the moderates, anyway) are happy with poor education and underfunded social programs.

The difference is that our priorities place people over dollars. You can't run a government like a business. That's not why it exists. It exists for the common good of its citizenry.

What high taxes?

Taxes in this era are not high.


And we know exactly what to do to reduce the deficit.

16. Oh I agree that taxes are currently not high.

I'm just saying that, idealogically, nobody WANTS to pay high taxes. You don't see pols campaigning on a "raise your taxes" platform.

7. There is no problem with 'high' taxes.

They are at historic lows, which is part of the problem.

12. I don't think so.

I think many of them ARE happy with underfunded social programs. I think quite a few of them would be happy with unfunded social programs.

15. Sure. Many of them are.

But the R-moderates I know don't fall into that category. Perhaps it's because I live in a blue state. I don't know.

4. One article I read they blamed it on the fact checkers...

How anyone could run on a platform that was against women, that was entirely for the 1% or looked their noses down with hate on the 47%, or think its cool to hate on the minority because of their differences, who think that "God Hates Fags"... who even hate their own Log Cabin Republicans..

Let them cry..it will do them good, to reflect on the real reasons they lost this race, and not some sugar coated sweet
swill dredged up by Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh.

10. The worth in dollars was probably very high. The worth in actual humanity and empathy....

....probably not so much.
