Mitt Romney is a loser...an election loser.
In his 1994 senatorial campaign, he lost by a huge margin (by more than 17 points) in a year when Republicans took over Congress. Despite everyone elses success, Romney managed to lose.
Of all his campaigns he has won only once when he won a single term as governor of Massachusetts, but he quickly tarnished that close victory.
After becoming governor in 2002 with Kerry Healey as his running mate, Romney proceeded to mismanage his position so that his approval dropped rapidly into the 40's and then the 30's. He left that mess to Lt Gov Kerry Healey when he jumped ship to avoid the huge loss he knew was coming in the next election. Left in the lurch, Healey was not able to rebound above 36% due to Romney's terrible performance as governor.
With no thought to his poor performance, Romney then entered the 2008 campaign for the presidency on the strength of a losing senatorial campaign and a destroyed governorship.
He lost again miserably against inept, weak John McCain. McCain more than DOUBLED Romney's numbers by attacking Romneys flip-flop record as a tax increaser.
The summation of Romney's election history: he tends to lose. Yet Romney is the man we are told is "the most electable".
His election record says that is simply a falsehood.
Add to his history of losing his political record as a flip-flopper, as a vulture capitalist, and as an advocate of liberal, pro-tax, pro-choice and anti-gun causes, and it's easy to see that the man will continue to be a loser....of elections.
We cannot afford to watch Romney get taken to the woodshed by Barack Hussein Obama.
Romney is a stink’n liberal what else is there.
Honestly, I can’t understand why anyone would think he is the man to go against Obama. It defies logic.
I’d vote for Ron Paul before I’d vote for Mitt.
The media has allowed Romney to play rope-a-dope in the primary campaign so far.
He has been annointed and we’re having him shoved down our throats by a media that is unanimous in proclaiming “Romney..most electable”
Romney will lose to Obama.
Dead on. Mittens is a loser constantly running for office and rarely winning. If he doesn’t make the nomination this time, he will be a perennial candidate just like Harold Stassen.
He hunts varmits.
(reminds me of the John Kerry clip, “is this where I git me my huntin license?”)
Mitt Romney=Gun Grabber
Element of truth here but sounds like a slick rendition from a campaign opponent staffer not yet 30 years old.
Romney has been running for the presidency since 2003.
He has a terrible record as a governor, and on the strength of that we’re to believe he’s “most electable”.
Now Obama's the incumbent. And we expect Romney to beat Obama NOW?
Willard left Kerry Healey high and dry in her campaign for governor.
Newt called it right. Mitt didn’t run again because he knew he’d lose. Bill Weld and Paul Cellucci were both Republicans—RINOs, but Republicans in MA nonetheless. Both were more effective governors than Romney.
“Seventeen years after his initial attempt at entry into politics was thwarted, Mitt Romney still doesnt have a response to the issue which derailed him against Ted Kennedy.
If nominated, its more than reasonable to believe that he wont have one in the fall. The Democrats will dust off the playbook from 17 years ago, update it for the additional examples, and pound Romneys candidacy to a pulp.”
Anglian, that is such a great post.
It is worthy of being in everyone’s inbox.
Romney generates ZERO enthusiasm and THAT is what gets people elected. He won’t win.
Well written piece, thanks.

Bingo! Not Rocket Science that Willard the Lib is the worse guy we can run. Period.
