The GOP shot themselves in the ass when they failed as a party I. The W years.
Obama didn't win as many moderates as he did in 2008 though. Did you see the poll on being disappointed in the choices and how things never change but things go on the same?* Pretty indicting. Most of them were on the right-leaning side too. Then you have to figure that there WAS fraud. So it had to really be a very close election—not the comfortable margin Obama received.
Let them gloat though. That's a good thing to think they're comfortable. Although, I have read Bill Clinton warned the Democrats to not talk down to America's gun culture or they'll pay for it.
