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.

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.

Romney went around discussing how he'd campaign in order to raise funds from wealthy donors. He told them he was going after the 10% of the voters he described as a moderate undecided middle.

Of course there is no middle in American politics ~ and it's too late to change minds with a campaign ~ you need to get that out off the way years before so that you can focus your campaign on firing up your own party members to vote and saying bad things about the opponent (to dispirit the other party's members so they don't vote).

Obviously Romney himself was pretty naive, as were his staffers, but he did get money out of the rich donors. Kind of makes me wonder if rich donors are smart, or if smart, just how politically astute can they be to believe such utter rubbish!
