He knows how losing looks and I’m sure that losing and his amazing remarks about the MSM and Obama come from his permanent view of the inside of his own rectum where his head is permanently planted.

He is insulated from reality, insulated from real life and insulated from what is obvious to the average observer and admitted to by many in the MSM.

The GOP elite are such pathetic morons.

Cramdy Crowlady bitch slapped his guy in a nationally televised debate, and he can’t make himself acknowledge it.

Stu(pid) must want a job at CNN, and is sucking up to prove his loyalty.

No wonder establishment republicans keeps on losing. “Stu” apparently stands for stupid. Everything he says contradicts his initial statement that the press wasn’t in the tank. He says that after the election and since there is no rep vs. democrat to choose from, now the press will ask tougher questions. Really, Stu? Do you even think about the words that come out of your mouth? The republicans will continue to lose if they follow the advice of people who don’t understand the political environment in which we operate. The CNN press guy, Howard Kurtz, can’t even believe that Stu can be so dumb.

I supported Romney, but I was completely totally turned off by the way he ran his campaign from the first day he won the nomination.

He was worthless. A total waste of an election, and four years.

I do not support anything about his campaign now. And I condemn this idiot for repeating the nonsense.

I am glad that Stu straightened that out.
Combine this glorious revelation with R’s son saying ‘Dad didn’t want it’ or some such drivel and they keep piling it on.

Kind of like the kid that wanted a pony.
He begged Christmas and birthday for 7 years and one day the father had a farmer unload his ‘honey wagon’ in the front yard, as he wanted to do the lawn and maybe start a garden.

Kid ran downstairs, saw the steaming pile of dung and started clawing at the edges. When the father ‘begged’ him to stop the kid yelled:

“No way I am stopping with all this $hi7 laying here, there has to be a pony someplace”.

George Stephanopolus collaborated with the Obama campaign to ask provacative questions about birth control at a republican debate, in order to allow Obama to launch the “war on women” part of his campaign. In what way was that not being in the tank for Obama?

Seems to prove that Romney just threw money and thought he could buy a winning campaign team.

Those guys had no loyalty, they only cared about bleeding him dry and taking his money.

Romney may be a RINO, but I still pity him for being that foolishly naive.

This is why we lost, AGAIN! The “chief strategist” for our side is dumber than a box of rocks and never noticed that the clowns in the state run “media” are kissing Barry’s arse 24/7. The way I see it, the GOP “strategists” for the last two elections worked a hell of a lot harder trying to get the Kenyan elected than they did trying to get the GOP nominee elected. JMO.

Did Reagan need a strategist? If you are running for the most important gig in the world, you’d better have these things figured out on your own, and not rely on consultants.

Yeah, but Romney and the GOP-e did a bangup job destroying all of his Republican competitors and smoothing his glide path to the nomination, eh?

This guy is about like the one who sabotaged McCain--looking ahead to his next gig instead of doing his job. If anyone needed evidence that these consultants are nothing but the shameless unprincipled whores Limbaugh says they are, this is it.

My apologies.

Indeed. We had a very weak round of candidates this time,, after Sarah Palin dropped out.

I thought Romney was the strongest. I may have been wrong.

Unlike a lot of us who endured, or who will face, LONG TERM unemployment,

these types continue to circulate in DC, selling themselves out for their ‘brilliant strategic’ advice to the next batch of politicians.

That’s what happens when the most populous solidly Republican state, Texas, doesn’t have a say as to who the candidate will be.

Stu Stevens' take on "so-called" media bias and Romney's 2012 campaign.

Democrats, GOPe - Opposite sides of the same coin.

So long as this is the case, true conservatives don't stand a chance.

Hey, Rove and Armey were just trying to deliver a permanent Republican majority, and their polling told them that majorities of Americans favored stuff like Federal education spending and Medicare Part D.

Simply put, the Republican elite knew that a very large fraction of American voters — probably more than half — want more free stuff. One intractable problem is that when Republicans expand government when they control both the legislative and executive branches, many conservatives and libertarians who pay attention to reality don’t show up on the next election day. The other intractable problem is that anybody who wants free stuff and bothers to vote knows that the Democrats promise more of it.

If these guys were running an enemy recognition program, we would have been shooting down our owm planes in WW2 in Leyte Gulf Turkey Shoot. Or perhaps we have met the enemy and it is us, was that what the Stupendous Jackass was trying to say.

Perhaps for our Italian bretherin, his name means stu gots?

As a corollary to your statement, it's what happens when the Northeast Rockefeller Republicans control the process and believe they know what's best for the rest of the country. Throw in crony capitalist consultants like Rove and you have a toxic mix destined to fail.

Actually wasn’t there a Texan prominently in the mix, who sort of crashed and burned?

He could have saved us, honestly.

I’m all for supporting Texans, but he sort of wasn’t as strong as originally anticipated, is all.

Are you referring to Bush or Perry...where would Perry have wound up, if Texas was one of the first primaries, instead of being after Romney pretty much had it all sewn up?
