Good point but that was before we had 4 years of Obama. I’m not sayin’ Romney was then or is now a good choice. I’m just sayin’ based on polls and just the mood of the nation and most especially The Republican Party the momentum and enthusiasm for Mitt was phenomenal. No I didn’t just see the USA through rose colored glasses this election cycle. I speak as a person who did not and does not care for Mitt Romney. He is far too liberal for me. I still voted for him though. It was a vote against Obama more than a vote for Romney. I was far, far from alone there. But Republicans voting against Romney in a Primary vs not voting for the Republican Candidate in a General election, and one of this magnitude, makes no sense.
Do you really believe there were fewer Republicans voting this election than last? I don’t. Even if the evidence is just circumstantial my gut tells me this election stinks of corruption.
Sure, there was vote fraud, but there is always vote fraud, so we all expected that. The Romney campaign and the Republican party obviously just haven’t done enough to counter that.
Whatever we blame this defeat on, whether it’s vote fraud, or demographics, or Chris Christie, it will still boil down to the fact that we should have been able to overcome those obstacles. We can’t just pick a scapegoat and then try the same old strategy in four years, like we usually do.
