    I am curious, what is going to be the Republican Party response to the following comments from elements of its own party:

    By Romney's reckoning, he lost the election because Obama beat him at his own game.

    If we stop assuming so much?

    Well, Obama voter, there was enough fact about anti-America, anti-Americans, anti-Constitution, anti-free-enterprise, anti-military, anti-family, anti-working-people, anti-sovereignty, socially and racially divisive, intellectually bankrupt, economically illiterate, morally anchorless, diplomatically ignorant, arrogant Obama and his nearly four first years in office that no one had to make any assumptions about him -- except that, were he elected, his second term could be worse than his first.

    For me, that's why I voted for Romney.

    Oh, yes: Given that mendacious Marxist megalomaniac Obama and his campaign were the nastiest, most malicious and most vulgar in many decades -- given the lies they perpetrated against Romney and Republicans, conservatives and the Tea Party -- it appears that you and your 60 million fellow Obama voters made lots of assumptions about who Obama's Romney was.

    And, yes, it didn't help that the Republican Party and Romney and his campaign either didn't know or didn't want to recognize that the Democrat/Leftist Party and its standard bearer were thugs in a street fight. Ones that would do and say anything, anywhere, any time to win.

    There is a way to deal with such ne'er-do-wells. And until the Republicans, conservatives and Tea Party do -- and really decide they want to win -- the DLs will continue to present and get elected many, including president, who are as morally adrift, intellectually bankrupt, socially and racially divisive, and psychologically bent candidates as Obama.
    Here's a lovely little number.

    Another Republican who thinks Obama beat Romney at his own game.

    George H.W. Bush was an old-fashioned upper-class politician. His class saw elective office as an honorable pursuit, but saw the process of getting elected as a necessarily dirty business. Get elected any way you can. Bush ran a very dirty campaign in 1988. (Heard of Willie Horton? Bush is the one to thank for that.) I think Mitt Romney is the same kind of politician.

    Obama ran the Karl Rove playbook against Romney (define your opponent early; attack not his weaknesses but his strengths). Obama's attacks had the added advantage of being true, if not entirely relevant.

    Whichever candidate won, there's bad news for us. The campaigns get more negative and less substantial. The voters say they want someone who actually talks about the issues, but in truth they never reward people who do.

    The question is, why has this effect become stronger over time?

    Why do you think man? Really, have you even spent one calorie of your brain's processing power to answer this? Because the answer is simple. The voting public. I would think most INTPs would have enough contempt and cynicism towards human behavior to mitigate the affects of the typical displacement of blame to not keep themselves out of the category of the multitude of the ignorant, but I guess not. It is the culture of this country. But you will never see it, no matter how many times people tell you and others like you. Your collective fate is sealed.

    If people had a true level of self awareness, their espoused beliefs and actions would align, and the majority of people in the country would be voting for Ron Paul, who has the exact qualities most people SAAAAY they wish for, obviously without the lies and mask of a politician, but instead they choose politicians with the biggest and brightest mask that everyone knows will never amount to reality, but speaks to their inane and base desires. But the collective unconscious of the people has other ideas not grounded in the constructive sense of this world as we know it. As such, this country will fail. It will die without ever knowing what brought about its demise. All the self awareness of a fruit fly. Rome falls, America falls. Same idiocracy.
