  1. the last two leaders of the republican party are now despised by the republicans. bush never even showed his face during the last election and now romney will be considered toxic too. what does that say about republicans?
    contrast with dems. their past leaders have become statesmen. bill clinton is highly respected and even jimmy carter is admired for his work.

    Top Republicans Excoriate Romney On Sunday Talk Shows

    If Mitt Romney has any friends left in the Republican Party, they’re in hiding.

    On the Sunday talk shows, senior Republicans, former Romney surrogates and prominent conservatives piled on their defeated presidential nominee for telling donors that he lost because President Obama bought off minorities and young voters with “gifts.”

    “It’s nuts,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on ABC’s “This Week.” “I mean, first of all, it’s insulting. … The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”

    Rumored 2016 presidential hopefuls in the party saw an opportunity to distance themselves from Romney.

    “I absolutely reject what he said,” said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on “Fox News Sunday.” “We as a Republican Party have to campaign for every single vote. If we want people us we have to like them first. And you don’t start to like people by saying their votes were bought.”

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), an on-again, off-again advocate for comprehensive immigration reform, said Romney’s comments were especially damaging among Hispanics. He said Romney fueled the fire of their disenchantment with the GOP that grew when the ex-governor pushed a policy of “self-deportation” for illegal immigrants and their children.

    “We’re in a big hole, we’re not getting out of it by comments like that. When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of our rhetoric on immigration, and our candidate Romney and the primaries dug the hole deeper.”

    Carlos Gutierrez, a top Hispanic surrogate and adviser to the Romney campaign, said he was “shocked” by the comments. “I don’t know if he understood that he was saying something that was insulting,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    Someone not on "not so free thinker's" ignore list should inform him the election is over. His "team" won. The nation isn't going to fare so well, but as long as his team won. Who cares right?

    It says that the conservatives should not let the elite wing of the republican party cram another worthless candidate down their throats.
    And, that everyone should check out
    Minimum government / maximum freedom.
