I may be one of the most hated people in Ohio. If today is any indication, I am truly despised. Why? I was relentless in my disgust, opposition and repudiation of everything republican. Not for what they stand for, since they stand for nothing; with the exception of bigotry, racism, hatred and lying, but because I was right. But I am again wandering off message. Then again, maybe not.
Thank Ohio for the end of the republican party. I know, Obama got lots of other electoral votes, but it was Ohio that put the dagger in the heart of the republican party. It ended their lives as they know it. All their bluster that night and before, that it would be a landslide for Romney and that Ohio would go red was put asunder Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 11:15 p.m. Now, you might ask how is it the end of the republican party? Karl Rove had nervous apoplexy on Fox News and demanded that they take it back. Their lives were over. As the evening went on, my reaction was “let them have Ohio now if they want it. It won’t help, and we still win.”
I’ve heard my republican friends today say “it is pathetic that a republican can’t republican Ohio, Florida and Michigan.” They still don’t get it. They ran a candidate who lacked character, honesty, policy, communication, He exuded hatred and racism. That was his message to his faithful and they bought it by the barrel. They couldn’t get enough. You just can’t come to Ohio or Michigan and tell them that his plan was to let the auto industry go bankrupt. That Jeep was moving its entire operation to China and expect to get their votes. He truly thought that those words would endear Ohio to him and carry him over the top. Rove spent $430 million dollars to spread that message of lies and hate. Ohio hated him right back, and it hurt. Romney and Rove are the poster boys for everything that is wrong and evil in the republican party.
Read the conservative blogs or watch if you can bear it Fox and all you see is desperate cry babies. You could say as Maureen Dowd did that Romney won the election, he is president. Of a limited number of white people. Everyone else voted Obama. The repugnicans lost everything they wanted. And cry they are. Most of all they lost because they had nothing to offer. They committed suicide and screamed rape and murder.
I am one of the 47%. That video was his ultimate betrayal. He plunged the tagger straight into his own heart. They condemn the use of “identity politics” only because they themselves have no identity. Romney didn’t know who was. Near they end he pretended to be a democrat, only to get votes. Even that didn’t help. The 47% comment was crucial because republicans can not identify with everyday Americans. They do not know what that means. Romney and the republicans avoided social issues. They went silent. Latinos and blacks overwhelming share social values as do women and the middle-class Americans. The moderate GOP has avoided it for years. They could not or would not attract minorities or women with social values. They in fact drove them away. They will never reach minorities short of becoming democrats themselves. It is the reason they underestimated Ohio. It is why they lost Ohio. It is why Ohio ended the republican party. The party is in shambles, a shell of itself and bleeding all over itself. Can’t you hear them cry? They were doomed by their hatred and prejudice. Their violence against women in the name of ending abortion is perversion. Their stench of superiority over the common man has turned their party into a sewer. It is why they lost. It is why they will always lose. It is why they are are no more.
I guess we were must too smart.
