Christopher Ruddy’s Perspective: It was the worst of times and the worst of times.
With the 2012 election results in, there are no short- or even medium-term “silver linings” for Republicans.
President Barack Obama has won a decisive victory and the GOP, expecting to gain Senate seats, actually had a net loss of three.
The “morning after” will bring the expected explanations and after-game quarterbacking. Still, it is important that the GOP understand why we lost this one in hopes of future victory.
