You just can’t please all the voters all the time.
The recent presidential election has brought relief to liberally inclined voters, but consternation has been writ large on America’s conservatives. All of us regardless of party are relieved to get a brief reprieve from hateful attack ads and frequent robocalls, but oh, the second-guessing now being done by the honchos of hindsight on the political right. Why did Mitt Romney lose, they ask, and then immediately answer their own question with what often sounds more like rationalizations than valid explanations.
