Tonight was, by any measure, a disaster for the Republican Party. Not only did its hand-picked candidate, Mitt Romney, lost to arguably the weakest incumbent President in my lifetime but the party got destroyed in a number of Senate elections that should have been wins. The party is weaker now in Washington than it was after the historic Tea Party election of 2010.

I did not think it would turn out this way.

I thought for sure this mistake would be rectified and it wasn't. But we know that now. You are not alone in your thinking.
 
I think, many of those that were defeated may have been their own worst enemies.
 
I don't think Romney was the "hand-picked" candidate. I think that he was simply the default candidate after the GOP spent a year devouring itself.
