Watching McCain concession speech

The crowd was attentive and respectful. That doesn't mean we didn't whoop a few times whenever McCain mentioned Barack Obama!

It is too bad that the tone of last nights speech was not the one used throu out the election. Just as liberals turned off moderates in the Seventies with their tone McCain tuned off moderates with his. Each side Liberals and Conservatives have 35 percent true belivers. To win you need to get the 30 percent in the middle. You not going to get it talking like a nut job.

I tend to agree.

The GOP needs to shed it's image as a welcome refuge for religious extremists and hard right wingers, and try to get back to the moderate conservative movement that was a hallmark of the Reagan years.

Only then will they have a chance to make any gains. Most Americans dislike religious fundamentalists; especially OTHER religious fundamentalists.
