Bad luck

The Republicans are certainly experiencing a run of bad luck, much of it deserved. The Great Recession started to assume its full shape and force in 2008, an election year, ensuring that no Republican could be elected. After smearing the President for four years and refusing to cooperate with him for the good of the country, Republican Mitt Romney lost a very winnable election by his many errors, particularly the 47% comment. Now in 2016 after smearing Hillary for 24 years and Barack for 8 years, the GOP base has nominated Donald Trump, the one candidate, perhaps the only candidate, who can’t defeat Hillary in a fair fight.
