The existential despair (is) familiar because liberals and Democrats said the same sorts of things immediately following the 2004 vote. Like Mitt Romney’s, John Kerry’s final polls before Election Day—not to mention the early exit polls on the day itself—suggested he had a reasonable chance of victory. So when defeat came, Democrats were both discouraged and shocked. And their first reaction was to conclude that America had changed in a fundamental way.

The lesson of 2012 that needs to be remembered for 2016 is do not run a loser liberal RINO for the presidency!! Ever again!!

No more Doles. No more Bush’s. No more McCains. No more ROMNEYS!!

To hell with the masterminds and central planners of the good ol’ boys GOP-e club. Support your local grassroots conservative tea party!!

The difference is Kerry came within one state and 120,000 votes of victory.

I strongly disagree with the premise that GWB lacked a core ideology and failed to present a vision for the future. He didn’t deliver in his second term, but that isn’t the point of this article.

GWB also won bigger over Kerry than Obama vs Romney.

GWB was not Carter or worse in his first term the way Obama was.

The 2012 and 2004 races were completely different.

GWB won by only 2.4 percentage points?? I have to look this up. I thought he did a lot better than that.
