Yup, because Junior was an idiot. But not even Soros can match the money from the right. For every Soros, there are five on the right, for example Koch, Adelson, Friess, Moskowitz, and Walton. And the right spends five times as much.

There has been a buying strategy on both sides, unquestionably worse on the right. No one sane will argue that. I think we've seen that approach doesn't work and there will be a stronger focus on traditional political campaigning and awareness for a new Republican image and message over the next five years. Smarter heads are slowly starting to prevail and I think the party is waking up to the realization that we need to eject the tea party types even if it costs us some leadership potential in the short term.

I see potential in people whose have specific views I might not agree with (Bobby Jindal for example opposes abortion and same sex marriage) but are otherwise smart enough to divide their personal morals and responsibility to govern.

I think it's sad that so few believe in limiting the government and cutting our spending down to manageable levels. I'd imagine there's likely many bills and programs that are redundant.
