It is joyfully apparent to me that money alone cannot win an election. The super PACs that spent hundreds of millions of dollars (2 to 1 for Romney) were repudiated this election.
Karl Rove – the head one of the biggest pro-Romney super PACs - on Fox News Tuesday night was practically insane in his protest that Fox News had declared Obama the winner too early. There was a man who couldn’t come to grips with the fact that the money he collected and spent like a drunken sailor did not deliver the election to Romney. It worked in the past, but no more.
If the Republican Party continues its hard-line attitude, it will be a party of the past. I hope the Republicans moderate their message so this doesn’t happen. We will see if they do by the way the House of Representatives acts the next two years.
