What caused this to happen? Was it Romney's reputation as an opportunistic flip-flopper? Was it his strategy of "sitting on a lead" and "running out the clock" after the first debate? Was it the rancor generated by a hard-fought primary campaign? Did Romney's Mormon faith spook Christian voters? Was it a combination of all of these? Was it something else?
Those are very good questions.
It was allowing Obama to call him names for months without hitting back for one thing. But I still think that the moron social security / medicare recipients once again were convinced that Romney/ Ryan's plan to save medicaid / social security was gonna take away their gummint check.
The very bastard that is hastening the bankruptcy of the nation and ensuring that social security and every other welfare program is insolvent managed to convince them that Romney/Ryan were a threat to their government teat.
Can't you just love the irony?
Age and demographics are not on our side. Old Republicans are dying off faster than new ones are being created.
