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:

 

 

On Wednesday, I added up Obama’s margin in a few key states, to get a sense of just how agonizingly short the Romney campaign finished from 270 electoral votes.

Some of those straggling precincts have reported, and so here is an updated set of numbers, according to the results this morning on the New York Times’ results map:

Florida: 73,858

Ohio: 103,481

Virginia: 115,910

Colorado: 113,099

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.

Obama’s margin in some other key states:

Nevada: 66,379

Iowa: 88,501

New Hampshire: 40,659

At this hour, 120,556, 279 votes for Obama and Romney have been counted nationwide.

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.
