I'll tell you why they lost. Romney won the white vote in 43 of 50 states (including New York, California, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, etc.) and also won 52%-46% in households that make $50K or more per year. So that leaves the poor minorities that controlled this election. If you are a poor minority person, you should feel proud but if you are a white Democrat, don't feel like it was you and your brethren that won this election or that there is some sort of mandate that comes out of this.
Cocky liberals think they won this election, when it couldn't be farther from the truth.
And still more proof how those who do not understand their enemy can never win. As soon as you start making stuff up about your enemy because you don't try to understand them, then you can never, ever beat them.
