Republican Party leaders underestimated their political party’s alienation of Conservatives, birthers and Constitutionalists. They alienated them by ridiculing birthers and their first cousin, Constitutionalists. In effect they said:
“We don’t need the ridiculous issue of Obama not being eligible for the office of president; we choose to be ‘respectable.’ [God forbid that we should be viewed as the opposing fanatical political party by the Democrats and their buddy media!] We will win the election and this issue will all go away. Then, also, we won’t have to admit that we were complicit with Obama’s illegal presidency, and helped further it by our conspiracy of silence.”
Conservative friends: When outright fraud and illegality aren’t dealt with; it rapidly mushrooms. The Republican Party as a whole dismissed Obama’s usurpation of the presidency. In effect, they denigrated the US Constitution by allowing a non natural born citizen to qualify for Commander-in-chief. Now, they have no one to blame but themselves for Obama’s two term destructive White House occupation.
These know-it-all Republicans were told, alerted and, in some cases, screamed at by various personality sources; but, they chose to either ignore or go on the attack against those Conservatives who held their birther and Constitutional banner high. They heaped ridicule on these serious American Conservative voters, mimicking the lib Democrats, with the political ploy of demonizing those voices; calling them, “conspiracy theorists.” And, now, they are surprised that fewer Republican voters showed up at the polls to support their moderate (walk lightly) Mitt Romney. Reports are showing that fewer Republican voters supported Mitt Romney than what voted for John McCain. I ask: “What kind of country club dream world are these Republican leaders living in?”
In short, the Republican leadership has overlooked the old adage: “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!” By their conspiracy of silence over Obama not meeting the US Constitutional standard of a “natural born citizenship” status, these Republicans who threw Conservative birther and Constitutionalists under their political bus, are reeling with their monumental political loss.

A footnote to the above mini commentary:
I don’t know how many Republican Facebook sites I visited to register some of my political commentaries during the course of the recent political campaign. I found very few which would allow commentaries like mine to be freely posted. That tells me something. It tells me that most Republican leaders and Conservative talk show hosts are all talk and no do. It tells me that they are closed [minded] to the full input of the voting public. Talk show hosts like Sean Hannity and his comfy (buddy) guests, such as Republican strategist, Karl Rove, aren’t really interested in what the rank-in-file has to think. They are too engrossed in what the political elite think and how to keep making their Network millions.
