    [QUOTE Anti-birth control stance. What woman in their right mind is going to give up the right to birth control or abortions? There aren't too many out there that want to turn back the clock and reverse Roe V. Wade.][/QUOTE]
    This alone could have persuaded enough woman to vote differently. I find it strange that a a concept to be shadowed under governmental rule could be considered a conservative concept. A true conservative would keep government out of such decisions. Separation of church and state comes to mind.

    said punk starts to take a couple of steps toward me , at which time I show him what was in my hand. He stops dead in his tracks and says with a dead serious face

    " man, I was just askin for a dolla, no need to go pullin no blade on a brother, I see you got plenty"

    I wonder what he would have said if I had the Sig .40 with me.....

    How much of one is for you to determine..

    Seperation of church and state only means the state doesn't tell the church what to do. The "state" was founded on Christian principles and is to follow the will of the people. This is our whole problem, everyone has determined the opposite.

    This pretty much sums up the premise of your title. Republicans lost because they let the dims define them. The idea that even a republican like yourself thinks that this was Romneys stance on birth control is kind of sad. Just because the Catholics didn't want to pay for birth control didn't mean anyone in the Romney camp wanted to take it away.

    That's correct... the ill informed public believes the sound bites on the nightly news... (or the comedy channel)
