"Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle." -Abraham Lincoln
Bush only got 11% of the African American vote in 2004.
Is there any chance enough Republican in the House can come together to get some sort of comprehensive immigration reform passed that isn't everybody that is here now illegally needs to go home and get in the back of the line to come into the country legally?
I listened to talk radio this morning to see what sort of tone they (and their callers) would strike, and they didn't sound like they were ready to move on any real issues. It was a lot of dig in and fight harder.
And that the problem was the Romeny isn't/wasn't a REAL conservative.
Now, I'm not surprised by that, but I don't see how you address minority issues and not lose those people.
So don't take my statement to mean the Reps nominated the wrong guy (from the options presented). My statement is more an indictment of the direction of the party from 2004 - today.

As bad as this sounds, I think Obama has to make the first move toward the Reps, like Clinton did in his second term. We either go that way, or nuclear winter IMHO.

Democrats win the Senate seat in Montana. (he's an incumbant, but was considered very vunerable apparently)
They have a good chance to win in North Dakota too.

Seeing people freak out about Prop 6 in Maryland on my facebook is so disappointing.
Not that the 29 votes will matter, but was Florida settled? I know Obama was in the lead, but everything I pull up on the internet still says undecided.
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
Dems in California have the supermajority now in their legislature.
The GOP will now become officially irrelevant in this state.
Should be an interesting 2-4 years.

Birds are flying out of water
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow girl
just to pass her by
I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings
I'll take the narrow margin in the popular vote that Romney wasn't conservative enough. To me, he would've won this if he just gave a concrete plan instead of sprinkling truths with lies. He had so much time to just come up with a position on tax reform, but when you're not actually being a leader of the party then you have "constituencies" you need to run it by first.
On tax reform: he could never say that he's repealing child tax credits and mortgage interest deductions and student loan deductions and health insurance premiums and child care deductions etc—would've been suicide. But if was a man of his word, then these are the exact (or some of them) that he would've tried to cut. So the guy didn't have a plan other than "I'm not Obama." Pathetic.
