Wow... that's some spin. Verses had nothing to do with churches or government.

So did Franklin Roosevelt use a time machine when he enacted the Social Security Act 3 years before Hitler invaded Poland?

Republicans did great in 2010. Not sure why people keep saying they lost last two election cycles. There are many vulnerable Democrats up for reelection in 2014. That being said, they really neec a young charismatic presidential candidate.
Republicans didn't do great in 2010, the Tea Party did great in 2010. The Tea Party is absolutely not the same thing as establishment Republicans, nor are either of those the same thing as libertarians, yet all 3 are lumped together under the general "Republican" banner for the purpose of midterm elections. That's the reason it seems like "Republicans" won the 2010 election cycle, when in reality, all that happened is that the general "Republican" brand fractured even more than it already had in the 2000s.
If the overall "Republican" brand had done as well as some think, Obama wouldn't have won re-election. Instead, despite the 2010 midterm elections, Obama won by 4 million votes, and for the 3rd straight election cycle, Republican voter turnout declined.
I say the following as a mostly conservative person:
The GOP had their chance to retake the White House. Obama's approval rating was dropping, and the GOP just needed to find someone to ride a wave of Obama-Hate into the House. They flat out screwed themselves.
Agree with others: They need a more moderate candidate in terms of social issues who won't yield on financial and economic policy. THAT will get votes.
Yup someone who is for gay marriage, legalization of marijuana and someone who doesn't hate women.
Someone who say it's a state matter on gay marriage -- let the people of the state decide;
Doesn't outright forbid the legalization of marijuana;
and has a record of supporting women's rights.
or how about something that actually matters......wait, we're too stupid for that
Getting the majority of America to vote with pure logic doesn't work.
Obama went for people's votes through their 'feelings.' It's worked. Republicans need to realize that the number of economical graphs you show doesn't matter to every person.
Get elected by not railing on social issues, leave a mark on policies that take priority once they're in the White House.
you honestly think something can be done that will get these mo mo's to vote republican?
Not villainizing them would be a good start.
You don't win elections by targeting the hardliners that attend rallies. You go for the moderates. The Republicans need to stop trying to sway moderates to the party and start realizing the party needs to go a bit closer to them.
Well one criteria to be a liberal is you can never have take an economics class in your life.
The crazies have taken over the Republican Party.
Damn Bloomberg looks scary up close.
What's up ?
Just definitely not what I was going for.
Generalize it however you want. Republicans took the House in 2010. So what if some of their ideas are different? Are you saying that Max Bauchus and Nancy Pelosi are the same? Does your party not have Blue Dogs and ultra leftists in the same party? I actually think Republicans will do well in the 2014 mid-terms. Democrats who aren't voting with the party on guns and the new Senate budget(that took them four years to get around to passing) obviously feel the same way.
