Bullshit. Even if Romney ran no campaign the American people knew what they were getting by allowing obama to be re-elected. The people CHOSE obama! The ones who voted for him and stupendously stupid and arrogant assholes who stayed home because Romney was a (pick your favorite...liberal, socialist, globalist, mormon, etc).
obama is the outward symptom of the cancer that has attached itself to America. The actual cancer is the 51% and more who voted for other people's money!
Reagan faced even worse odds but ran as an articulate conservative and won TWO freekin’ landslides!!!
Wrong. Obama pulled in fewer votes than he did in 2008. He was beatable by a campaign that 1) stood for something, 2) took the attack to him, 3) could differentiate itself from Obama in key areas such as Obamacare, 4) had a candidate who people could relate to and 5) built on the GOTV model created by Karl Rove in 2000 and 2004 (a model that was the basis for Obama’s GOTV camapigns). Romney failed to do all five. And the stinkin’ GOP-E is learning all the wrong lessons in rushing to cave to the Dems’ free stuff mentality instead of realizing they pushed about the worst possible candidate in 2012.
It’s really hard to beat an incumbent whose signature legislation is the same as your signature legislation. The fact is Romneycare wasn’t going to beat Obamacare because there weren’t enough differences. Romney had nothing to stake his ground on, the most he had was being a better speaker than Obama.
