Arch-conservatives: anger, denial but no acceptance of Obama's victory

Washington (CNN) - Step by step, diehard conservatives are confronting their grief over President Barack Obama's re-election.

But judging from blog posts and other public pronouncements, many remain stuck somewhere between denial and anger, very far from acceptance.

    They should be angry to themselves. Anything we do must be calculated (in another words apply ARITHMETIC). How did they expect to win without knowing how to do it? Did they think using money without knowing how, could had brought them votes they needed to win? Pres. Obama needs now to spend more on education. The other side seems to be lagging far behind.

    Maybe the Conservatives need a "community organizer" to help get their message out. Oops, I forgot, being a community organizer is a bad thing!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha.

    Anger can change things for those "arch-conservatives", hardening of the arteries that can lead to heart attack or stroke, mental illness, cancer, suicide, divorces, loss of job, death, you name it, anger can do all those things, so stay angry.

    when the shoe is on the other foot-
    Your party has grown weak and sick from sitting around for 2 years and doing absolutely nothing constructive in Congress. They no longer know how to lead, instead whining, complaining and playing the victim. Americans are sick and tired of Republican anti-Americanism.

    Wow! Way to incite hate from the left, CNN! But then, vicious intolerance toward the right is common among your readers.

    They tried hate – and lost.
    They tried lies – and lost.
    They tried to buy votes – oops, nothing here
    They tried racism, birtherism, voter suppression, "evangelicalism".
    Still, they haven't learned anything.
    Sad to see that they have nothing to be grateful for on Thanksgiving. So instead of eating turkey, or ham, or
    whatever, they can just eat each other.
    Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!

    You are completely right. But to do the job of a community organizer, the GOP would have to leave its warm bed of FOX News and Rush Limbaugh and actually deal with real, live people and their needs and problems- not like the folks Mr. ROmney talked to in his 47% speech.

    Rick McDaniel, drop the dictator nonsense. If Obama were a dictator, why bother with election? He can just arrest people he does not like and put them in jail or worse. Obama spent a year trying to find some Republicans to support his healthcare plan. He ended up passing a healthcare plan which looks very much like the one that his opponent enacted in Massachusetts. Real dictators can just get rid of his opponents.

    Losers will always be losers. These fools should go back to their holes and never come out again. You lost. Get over it. Nobody agrees with your outdated, backward and nutty ideologies. You are nothing but losers. Get a grip
