Since the defeat of Romney last Tuesday there have been a plethora of gloom and doom stories written about the GOP by gleeful Leftists and conservatives who should know better. Jim Gerahty at National Review Online gives us some needed perspective:
Those four states, with a collective margin of, 406,348 for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275 electoral votes.
The sad and sorry truth is that we who oppose Obama got overconfident and our adversaries out-organized and out-hustled us. In short we lost this election because we failed Politics 101 in not getting our vote out. Time to stop moaning and start thinking, and then working for next time. The rant at the beginning of this video was given by a Leftist after the election results of 2010. The political wheel always comes round.
