That’s two Presidential elections in a row where Americans rejected politics of hate. The Right wing tried so hard with fake themes of “taking back our country,” as if Red Dawn was a reality and Democrats (their fellow Americans,) were the Russian/Cubans/Chinese invaders from the movie. They used religion in a way that would make the Taliban proud. They spent millions to spread vitriol against President Obama, all while millions of their fellow Americans remain in broken down schools and devastated cities like Detroit, LA, New Orleans, and now NY & NJ. So, where does the Republicans go from here?
Well, to recap, after the Presidential election: Candidate Romney gave his best speech after a long wait, he also immediately terminated his staffers’ campaign credit cards as they returned to their hotels (just business nothing personal I guess), meltdowns occurred on TV and Radio (even though Ann Coulter predicated a loss during the Republican Primary,) from Carl (the numbers aren’t in yet) Rove, to Neal Boortz who talked about President Obama by, “ likening him to figures such as Adolf Hitler and serial killer Ted Bundy, as well as terrorist groups Al Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia.”
Bootz then added, “Congratulate Barack Obama? I’m sorry, Herman, love you but you can take that and stick in that phony damn cowboy hat of yours.” Here, he throws a fellow conservative under the bus for doing the American thing by congratulating the winner. See the following for examples of these attacks.
Speaking of Republicans throwing Republicans under the bus, the same thing happened to General Colin Powell, Former RNC Chairmen Michael Steele, and Conservative potential 2016 candidate: NJ Governor Chris Christie, who had the nerve to say something good about President Obama when the President did his job for NJ during Super Storm Sandy.

Now, keep in mind as many Americans reject these “phony politics” where super rich radio, TV, and speech circuit Republicans, pretend to be fighting for the average “Joe the plumber” Americans. Where does the GOP go from here? Some say go after Hispanics, but they are quickly slammed. Some say not to worry since Republicans control many States, they just need the “right” candidate to win back the White House.
Sadly, GOP elected officials make statements about moving forward with President Obama, but they quickly walk these statements back on twitter or Fox News. Where does the GOP go from here? Well, “sounds like more of the same.” Too bad for Americans, too bad for 2014 & 2016 elections. It seems that real political debate that will move our Nation forward is dead and gone!
