    To grasp the reality here folks. The Rebublican, conservative, Tea party brand has been handed their walking papers in the last election. You're done. If the conservative brand ever raises it's head again, it's probably not in this generation. Elections do indeed have consequences. The consequence here is that you have lost. Try not to be to bitter. Time and tides will turn to you again. JD

    After four more years of this crap, I believe conservatives will be stronger than ever. A lot of things have sucked since Y2K but take a man's Twinkies and your going to have one pissed off electorate. Even those 47 percenters want their Twinkies. Do you have any idea how many Twinkies you can buy on a months worth of food stamps?

    Are Moon Pies next??

    JD, this seems a bit schizophrenic to me. First you say that the republicans and the conservative movement are done, then you say that "time and tides will turn to them again". This election was a squeaker. My opinion is that there is very little mandate here. Since the house is still controlled by the republicans, the dems better learn to compromise, and the increase in Rep. governors might indicate that there is still a strong Rep base out there. Almost any perturbation in the economy, foreign affairs, or even the weather could change the body politic. Now, I am not really part of the group that is perceived as the rep base (although I am anti-democrat enough to be a pretty reliable rep). I am pro-choice and pro-environment but anti big government and the last drives my voting most of the time. The religious right has made it more difficult for me to vote Republican lately and in fact in 08 I just couldn't stomach Palin so voted libertarian (although if Texas had been in contention I probably would have held my nose and voted rep).

    I feel compelled to add this: You just initiated a thread bemoaning (I think) the lack of civility on the forum and yet this particular topic seems specifically designed to produce rancorous responses. Although civil in on the surface, it appears a bit taunting to me. I can certainly maintain a civil discourse, but surely you were well aware of the reaction this is likely to provoke in some of the regulars here. You should act neither appalled nor offended when the nastyness begins.

    Yes, really. Seems to me that the popular vote worked out to something like 51 or 52% to 49 or 48%. That's hardly an overwhelming endorsement for the democrats of a total rejection of the republicans.

    Maybe in the land of liberals where you live but certainly not here in NC. We increased the number of republicans we sent to the House of Representives tossing more Dums to the street.
    For the first time in over 150 years we have a fully republican state, the governor, the house, and the senate.

    Unfortunate. Ask anyone in Kansas. Get ready for slashed services and raised taxes.

    The dems were raising taxes every year for many many years. As for slashed services I hope the republicans start slashing like crazy, but likely they will be wimps. Bring on the cuts!!
