Why They Lost...

We've all likely been hearing  a lot of commentary on why the Republicans did so badly in the recent nation election. Theorists on both sides are laying their particular brand of spin out. And some of the conservative talkers are being downright sore losers, attacking many liberals with accusations of trying to rub it in their faces,  -when, in some cases, all I've seen is an attempt to open up a dialogue.

Blogger Ezra Klein, who writes for the Washington Post, published an interesting piece today called "Don't blame Romney's message," in which he really pretty accurately spells it out, in my view. I'll leave it to the reader to visit the post's Web page and read it for themselves.

I really wish that Mitt Romney had delivered his message and not the mandate of the Tea Party. I suspect he pandered to them, certainly to get the nomination, but also to propel him into the White House. To me it's obvious that he chose Paul Ryan as his running mate to paint himself as a true conservative. It's a shame, because his message may have done the job.

I'll conclude this brief post by saying that I agree wholeheartedly if the idea that, if the Republican party simply concludes from this election that its message wasn't explained well enough to the masses but is on spot, then they are finished.

The people have spoken; now it's up to them to listen.
