"Republican Party leaders on Wednesday began picking up the pieces of their movement, trying to figure how to put them back together.
The GOP was blindsided Tuesday, but also revealed. The Democrats' ground organization was beyond anything they'd imagined, pulling in new voters with stunning effectiveness. It exposed a major weakness in the Republican approach to winning elections, practically and intellectually.
"I don't think anyone on our side understood or comprehended how good their turnout was going to be," said Henry Barbour, a Republican committee man from Mississippi. "The Democrats do voter registration like a factory, like a business, and Republicans tend to leave it to the blue hairs."*
There are a myriad of reasons conservative pundits are giving for Romney's loss. Some say it was Romney, his advisors, Obama doing things right, and other reasons. Cenk Uygur breaks down a huge reason (and money drain) that helped tank Romney and the GOP this election cycle.

"since the republicans got their ass kicked they're trying to figure out what happened". Imagine if Democrats said this about themselves after losing the house and senate (majority of Governorships, state houses, etc). They might understand why their policies tend to lead to their defeat. Of course if democrats were that capable/ cognizant in the first place, they wouldn't be democrats either.
*People like ANN COULTER are obviously delusional when they say things like "Republicans have to move to the right to win elections - THAT is not true - Reagan won in 1980 and'84 - Bush LOST the election and only won because of the Supreme court decision and LOST the popular vote and would NOT have had a chance if it wasn't for Monica Lewinsky - and in 2004 he only barely won because of the attacks ads and being a "war-time" President (so basically by scaring the people, and he BARELY won*!
Mitt Romney lost because a majority of Americans do not agree with Republic policy objectives or philosophy. They only reason the GOP has a grip on the house is because of highly efficient gerrymandering.
The problem with America is some racists people (then they bring jesus into picture - jesus hates black or jesus hates white people or jesus hates latinos *face palm*) cannot comprehend the demographics are changing. Their racism would not do any good in the modern age. People need to evolve and classify an individual as good based on his good behavior and good thoughts irrespective of the skin color. Politicians just capitalize on American mass psychology and favor mostly greedy corporations and favor less to masses that voted them. As George Carlin mentioned this election is just a show. People just keep unnecessarily fighting over Republican vs Democrats or conservatives vs liberals or commie vs capitalist. It is just plain stupid to categorize something into groups and fight (that is precisely how racism evolved) rather than see the big picture. Who takes advantage of the racism? Yes corporations - indirectly through politicians. Behind the scenes politicians from both parties gather and probably all these politicians are drinking wine and discussing "It was fun to fool masses"
+Dara Marc Sasmaz Yeah, that's how we are, and no, you are not overreacting. Around here people immediately get herded into groups based on color, opinion, financial status, sexual orientation, geographic location, that sort of stuff, and _not_ the content of their character. Now, to be fair, if you make yourself stand out a bit you can escape the mold, but as you say it's easier to just lump people together and move on.
+StormSong8 yeah but seriously "brown people"? I wouldnt like to be just called "brown". No one's identity should ever be a color.
Dont get me wrong I know you have this "black/white/asian"-thing since always, but sometimes I start to believe that the majority of US Americans is just too lazy to learn the names of countries and nationalities and then they just invent a new identity for you simply on the first association they get if they look at you. "You are from the Netherlands? No, too complicated, now you are white and you share the same culture with all the other 'white people'. You are from Nigeria? No, too complicated...". I know probably I am overreacting, but this seems really disturbing to me.
+Dara Marc Sasmaz US American here. "Brown People" refers to Hispanics of all kinds, but mostly Mexicans. Republicans get little support from Hispanics because they appear to be very calloused in their immigration stance.
+androidRS Yes, Brazilians, Argentinians, Canadians, Mexicans, etc. etc. here in Germany we see South and North America as one continent and therefore its inhabitants are Americans. Often we also just say America and refer to the USA, but to be more specific we say US Americans for the citizens of the USA. I am just used to it.
Not a complete loss it seems.
$390 million dollars in donations, created temp jobs, people getting paid.
I probably wouldn't give a crap if Republican lost as long as I got that kind of money coming in during the whole campaign.
Who cares about the political loss, think about the financial gain every 4 years.
I live in Michigan and have for 30+ years. It's where Mittens was born and raised. He lived here through high-school. Mittens lost his home state where his father, George Wilcken Romney was Governor in the 1960s and his still regarded as one of the best Gov. in the history of the state. The sitting Governor's office is in the George W. Romney building. He's widely regarded a a hero by many, and a great admirer of Martin Luther King Jr.
You'd think that that would've given Mittens some serious family coattails to help win the state.big. But everything he did during the entire campaign from not stopping the racist comments throughout, to blasting the United Auto Workers by saying "Detroit should go Bankrupt, so that the big three can be bought by private parties, lower wages to maximize their profits.", to the 47% comments, all ended his chances early.
GO AHEAD republicans keep going farther right...I litterally cant stop laughing whenever a right winger says they need a purist or someone not moderate ahahhaa...go ahead see how ted cruz or rubio would do...even with rubio's last name he wouldnt get more then 10 percent of the latino vote...u fuckers think you can win without the black vote, the women vote, AND ESPECIALLY THE LATINO VOTE...LATINO BABY!!! DID YOU KNOW BY 2030 LATINOS WILL BE THE MAJORITY...THE UNITED STATES OF LATINO!!!!.... good luck republicans lol
The Republican Party is facing total disaster - and their leadership is reacting by going even more crazy. They are losing demographic after demographic by wilfully pissing them off. It's like they have a huge check list of people to hate and they seem to be going down it, ticking off the minorities as they go. "Ok, so we hate Hispanics, lets check that box. Gays? Oh hell yes, check that one too. People who understand science? Pah, is science in the bible? Of course not! Screw 'em! Check that one too. Other ethnic minorities? Filthy unwashed mouthbreathers! Ok, check that one. Women? What the hell would they know about abortion or contraceptives? Check that one off too! Ok, um that leaves old white homophobic racists who don't understand science. Can we get elected if we pander to that lot?"
the problem is the minorities they think are jsut minorities are slowly becoming the majority...by 2030-2050 latinos will be the majority you can look that up...i mean when you alienate that many races not just backs and latinos, haha how many muslims you think going to vote for them??? i mean seriously....and aren't they losing more of the women vote to? man there in trouble big big big big trouble
I'm a registered independent, but usually vote republican. I'm trying to keep an open mind and listen to both sides of the arguement before I make a decision. Even though I rarely agree with the views of TYT, I keep clicking on their videos, hoping to see if they can have reasonable debate and maybe help me learn something new in a very complicated world.
But what do I get? Cherry picking of stories, sanctimonious lectures about other news networks' lack of journalistic standards, and now this. GLOATING! Really Cenk? Most of the country consists of independents, not party loyalists and apologists like you guys. This is not an honest channel, and I will not be clicking on your videos any more. This shit is not news, it's throwing red meat to the already converted.
In many ways, you guys are even worse than Fox News, because you don't have the excuse of a 24 hour news cycle to fill with bullshit like they do. So, adios, and good riddance!
the terms conservative and liberal are useless at this point. What are conservatives trying to preserve, how are the conservative in matters of fiscal responsibility (and I point to what they do when they are in power)? As for Liberals, what reforms (other than the affordable care act) have been done by liberals in the last 12 years? How are they going about furthering freedom of expression, or civil liberties through the government?
U.S. Politics is less and less about preserving the good in our society, or being fiscally responsible, or reforms and civil liberties and far more about making sure the laws and tax systems give the ultra wealthy (the top one tenth of one percent of our society) advantages which further their power, influence and wealth.
Both major parties are the party of money.
(cont) spoke to the job that Obama has done. Santorum and Paul had much better numbers against Obama than Romney did. Had Rom Paul been nominated, he would have beaten Obama. He would have won all three debates and would have taught that community organizer from KEnya a thing or two about the dollar.
Now, we have a president who thinks that this nation has a neverending ATM card to spend whatever it wants. Thank God for a Republican house and a close senate!
Romney lost the election, but Republicans were +29 in elections nationwide. Democrats got their assses kicked, not Republicans. Republicans have won a huge amount more elections than Democrats.
But, I can tell you why Romney lost. Romney lost because of nothing more than the people who voted for him in the primaries. I understand that policy is important, but someone should be voted for who truly has a shot against Obama. The fact that Romney, a guy with SO many holes, came so close (cont)
God. I’ve come to be hugely jealous of my nephew. He has been alone always and forever. By some luck, he has got a model to deeply love him in weeks. How can that be possible? He mentioned he used the Cupid Love System (Google it!) I wish someone stunning fell for me… I’ve never witnessed him so content. Kinda makes me sick.
But they're not real Bible thumpers. Real Bible thumpers don't politically participate because of their strictly selected issue scope AND, to a lesser extent, the Scriptures does not explicitly demand political participation(but only reverence, honor and respect to the established authorities and powers).
regardless of who anyone tries to fight for, the american man will always be on the worse end so long as we prescribe to the primitive doctrine of capitalism. capitalism is chaos, and chaos is a ladder. and once the ladder is climbed, those on top stay where they are, and the chaos becomes organized rigid injustice and inequality. only through the abandonment this capitalism can we as a society achieve equilibrium where all men have what they need and a bit more on the side.
The Establishment is Liberalism. You're a cool guy worthy of commending if you support the Democrat Party and any Liberal hero and cause. You have to remember, these guys fight for the common man.
The Republicans are the enemy, and must be stricken down. All those Bible-thumping, racist, sexist, homophobic, rich, fat cats...
what are you talking about? the "establishment" doesn't belong to one party. its a coalition of business, government, conservatives, and liberals, working together to keep the common man down and their pockets lined. but thats a separate issue entirely, right now I'm just talking about biblethumping, one percenting republican being pieces of shit.
nah, not really. i dont really give a shit about obama, the democrats, or really picking and staying with a single political party and integrating it into my personal identity. i just recognized mitt romney for the 1% turd sandwich he was and am glad he and the legion of idiots that ate him failed.
Because too many KOOK LIBERTARIANS LIKE RON PAUL
NAZISM, SECESSIONISM, XENOPHOBIC, WHITE SUPREMACISM
These things turn people off
too many REPUBLICANS pandering to the LIBERTARIAN NAZI KOOKS
I'd like to discover ways to have more sex. My friend has begun seeing a 10 simply because 8 weeks ago he registered to a website named Master Attraction (Google it if you wish to learn how.) I'm green with envy since I want to fall madly in love too. I'm gonna look into this Jake Ayres man's information and check out if it can help someone like me. Odd thing is, he previously had NO luck with women. How does one change that rapidly? His lady's like a model...
Good comment. I wasn't as happy voting for Obama the second time as I was the first time, but he's certainly better than Romney. Of course he's not perfect but he doesn't deserve the disrespect and sheer hatred he's getting from the Fox News and certain factions of the GOP.
LOL, LOL, LOL! Right on the money, pun intended. Your take on the delusions of the GOP and the double irony of how and why they lost the election is priceless! Especially when you point out how much money they spent and how Karl Rove is laughing all the way to the bank. Proof positive that what goes around comes around. And the GOP is long overdue for a RUDE awakening.
Obama isn't perfect, but I have not a doubt in my mind that the worst Obama could do is still better than the best Romney/Ryan could do. And Obama isn't doing his worst, he's doing not bad. Compared to the other big world economies, America is far stronger. All the faux scandals of late are a far cry from the scandals of Bush43, Clinton, or Reagan (Bush41s record was fairly clean for w/e reason). I don't know what you have to complain about unless you only see America as an isolated place.
I'm glad Romney/Ryan lost, but I gotta say it makes me laugh so hard that Romney's wealth was a factor. McCain has as much wealth as Romney and it had no bearing in 08. Bush43 was a fantastically wealthy guy - he owned a fukn baseball team! Gore had every bit as much cash when he ran. Bush41 was wealthy.
Romney totally got punked on this and it's kind of disturbing/unfair. That's every bit as ugly as playing the race card against Obama in my view - discrimination.
Hey, this guy..lukebccb...Damm...your a hateful little man, aren't you? Danny is absolutely right! And for you lukebccb, little man, (and I say little man because you make your self small with all the racist words you throw out) YOU DON'T KNOW, SHIT FROM SHINE OLA, DO YOU? ......LITTLE MAN! If you want to be a big man, then you should apologize to Danny. PS tell me what you think ...shit from shine ola, ...means.
I'll tell you in four days if you don't know.
(cont.): ...FOR "WHITE" "people" to become the "natural" "majority" SHIT-FOR-BRAINS "dannyroxo"????.... SO OF COURSE white BOY "dannyroxo" YOU don't *naturally* belong in the USofA white *BOY* "dannyroxo"....THUS IF the "natural" "order" of things was according to YOU "dannyroxo":YOUR KIND "dannyroxo" SHOULD NOT EXIST OUTSIDE OF THE WHITE *BOY* PLACE OF EUROPE WHITE *BOY* "dannyroxo"...
When YOU get a clue about reality white BOY "dannyroxo": get back to us ADULTS white *BOY* "dannyroxo"...
YOU mean SHIT-FOR-BRAINS "dannyroxo" where the west coast and western mountain regions of the USofA would TODAY be HUGE majority ASIAN - LIKE HAWAII - OR HUGE MAJORITY MEXICAN - like in present day southwest - BUT WAS PREVENTED FROM HAPPENING cause the USofA enacted laws in the western parts of the present day USofA where it prohibited "dirty meskins" and "dirty chinamans" from migrating into the western part of the USofA????.... AND INSTEAD MADE LAWS THAT MADE IT EASY FOR "WHITE"...
"Pacific Northwest"???.... YOU mean like in Portland and Seattle THAT FAR OUTPOPULATES THE REST OF "goodsoldswhitespeoples" IN Oregon and Washingon??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!
>.< Listen to yourself. Point 1, Look who supports Republicans. Point 2, Racist, Greedy, Ignorant, Careless of others who are not dear to you. Spineless, Point 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Enron, getting rid of red tape that set up for the failure of the bank industry. Point 8, 9. I'm a republican. But, I understand why we can't win an election. And it may be many more elections before we see one of us in again. God help us. But, we as republicans need a heart. ... Americans don't see this in us anymore.
i have done research of the old conservative republican party it seem they come out of reach of today politics they have been warned about abortion gays and marriage between man and woman will not work even conservative themselves says they should stop this and obama birthers and citizenship needs to just nailed it shut stop the none sense they knew they will lose on account of it
it will take many many years for conservatives gop republicans to get back the white house they dis own the latinos asians blacks and gays wow and women of course white women also.conservatism is out of date and out of touch it is a new world order of the future in politics stop going in the same old dead tired conversations
Ok.. Libertarianism is just Liberalism. Liberalism basically means individualism and the worst kind of Plutocracy like what we had in the USA in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Conservatism means imposing by law morality on society. Which of course none of these Neo con assholes in business suits have done in the past 50 years or more.
Look up the Progressive Movement in the US in the early 20th century it was largely pre-Social Democratic with a heavy dose of racial/moral values.
ur not getting it are you? those multinational businessmen whistling at the repubs are conservatives. one can not give a damn about christianity or white nationalism and still be a conservative by all means. just ask libertarians. the problem is that you have your own personal definition and model of what YOU believe it means to be a conservative and now have no idea what it means to be only fiscally conservative and not socially. those men that have ruined our country are fiscal conservatives.
19th century Liberalism held similar views on laissez-faire capitalism. But the "conservatives" you talk about are just Multinational Businessman who play dog whistle politics to Whites WITHOUT ACTUALLY DOING ANYTHING!
But with all the power that Ronald Reagan had in the 1980's HE DIDNT DO ANYTHING! He allowed massive third world immigration to continue and even gave amnesty to over 3 million illegal Beaners in 1986! He did NOTHING to enforce morality into law and allowed outsourcing of industry
yes, fiscal conservatism is about money, you twat. do you know what the difference between fiscal and social conservatism is? do you know what fiscal objectivism is? the conservatives, which is what they are by all definitions are out for themselves, because they prescribe to ideals of fiscal conservatism. these men are also the top earners and make of the aristocracy of america.
"Right wing conservative"
There is no point at all in anybody being a "conservative" because there is nothing left to conserve! All "Conservatives" care about is THEIR MONEY!
The Capitalists have been in a unholy alliance with the Leftist Liberals for generations! Why? Because the Capitalists want cheap third world labor (Mexicans mostly) while the Leftists want them here so they can be naturalized and vote them into perpetual power!
The ruling elite is just a Liberal Oligarchic Plutocracy
oh, dont get me wrong. humans arnt equal. true superiority is measured by intelligence and strength of character. as you lack both, your clearly an inferior being, lacking any real purpose for society. just the rotten, inbred fruit of two wretched trees. "Liberal left wing capitalist elite". i believe you mean objectivist, right wing, conservative, corporatist oligarchy. I'm starting to think your a troll. nobody could be this stupid.
Equality is a myth based on a false political ideology nothing more and nothing else.
Its main goal was to basically open the borders of all White countries all over the world with massive third world immigration to basically displace the European race in the lands of their forefathers.
Also if you only knew the history and the facts of the Left wing Liberal Capitalist elite of this country and secret police organizations like the FBI...
But of course you are a typical Lefty fucktard
WE WILL create a Separate White Republic in the Pacific Northwest!
ITS GOING TO HAPPEN no matter how many times you Lefty Liberal neo Commie faggots bitch and moan about evilnaziswhowanttokillsixmillionjews!
Check out our movement at NORTHWESTFRONT and you will get your first glimpse at the coming White storm!
when the liberals revolt against the plutocracy that attempts to run this country, theyll make sure to take your kind out as well once they deal with the former. white supremacists need to die, or at least be socially ostracized, for the good of the rest of white people, and the world.
The Republican party NEEDS to die so White Americans realize that their salvation is OUTSIDE of the system and not within it.
The solution to the White man's current peril is NOT going into a stupid little booth and voting for some rotten piece of shit in a suit.
The ONLY solution is a Revolution i.e. WHITE SEPARATION from this disease we call "America".
So if you are a young pissed off White male visit us at NORTHWESTFRONT and contact us and join us in our struggle for White freedom!
Terrific video. I was so mystified noticing my buddy change from being lame to a ladies man. He began attracting chicks instantly. I was amazed. He pretended he didn't realize. He finally admitted it on Friday. He told me he learned from the Jake Ayres Master Attraction Formula. Google it if you wish to know about it... He is on a date now with a sexy girl... Lucky bastard! Where are the most useful of these videos on Youtube?
ducks genitals and otters penises are shrinking due to chemicals in the water supply. its effecting us too. i have a video about it on my channel for anyone who's interested and wants to know more about it.
Romney lost the election because he never had a chance to begin with, he was not presidential material. Also he spent to much in trying to defraud Ron Paul out of his votes. He was criticizing a true winner who was in the same party (dirty tactics) believing he was himself a winner. The democrats were doing the same thing to Mr. Paul, but that was expected form an opposing party. If Romney would have dropped out of the race and got behind Mr. Paul and settled for V.P. Obama would have lost!FACT
mitt romney was going to give the corporations everything they wanted how is obama better for them there are people on the democrat side who seriously threaten them so they'd want to keep the democrats down more so these few capable inividuals don't gain any ground
The whole system is rigged, they wanted Obummer because they can control this clown way better than Ole MUTT.
It would not really be any better if Mutt had won.
I sorry to blow your fantasy to hell , but both major parties are two heads of the same monster. The dem's support the deadbeats, whiners and demanders and socialist, The repubs do another kind of welfare, for corporate types. letting them work the working people to death so they can get richer. Neither party is any damn good.
