Vanity: Candy Crowley and Chris Christie probably cost Romney the election.
11/6/2012 | barryobi

Posted on 11/06/2012 9:17:44 PM PST by barryobi

Candy Crowley ruined the second debate with her interference, CBS withheld damning video of Obama on 9/12 denying the Benghazi attack was terrorism. Romney was thrown off his game by the MSM covering for Obama.

After Sandy, Chris Christie injected himself into the campaign by shamelessly giving Obama wet sloppy kisses when he toured the Jersey shore after Sandy. I think this may have hurt Romney more than we all know, because the MSM ran three straight days of Christie/Obama giving each other wet sloppy kisses.

Not just them. The entire media discredited, mocked, and perturbed Romney and his message.

The mouthpiece media is our enemy and so remains. And the republicans in power just rub their lips on the media’s collective tailpipe.

We can point fingers all we want, however, the Republicans once again ran another moderate Republican. Plus, the takers in this country took over. I wonder how Sarah Palin would have done against zero?

I doubt the Chris made a bit of difference. The ignorance of the American citizen made the difference. Raised in the public school system that teaches socialism made more of a difference then any political personality.

unfortunately no. It wasn’t Candy Crowley. It wasn’t Chris Christie. It’s demographics. Romney won white voters by huge margins. But blacks voted for Obama by about 93%. Spanish people voted Obama by large margins. And as long as the white birth rate falls and the non-white birth rate soars, this is as good as we’re ever going to do in an election.
But the sad irony is that Spanish people are probably more conservative than white people. And church-going black Americans are too. But until they vote their conscience instead of their skin color, this will be the high-water mark for the Republican party.

No,
Romney did the same thing as McCain and played it safe when he should have gone for Obamas juggler on Benghazi. He chose safe and he lost. He shouldn’t have allowed the debate commission the choose the libs to moderate. But this is a moderates weakness, they play by the rules and they are too nice and the line know this and play it.

John King on CNN just had some interesting numbers. Romney lost women by 12%. 72% was white and Romney needed that at 76% at least.

Romney didn’t make the sale because his product sucked.

All he did was bleed the other candidates dry so he could by de facto become the nominee...

Bullshyt

Romney lost it himself. He let Obama slide on Benghazi.
He should have hammered him on it. He lost because he was afraid to tell the truth that Obama has the blood on his hands.
Christie’s a jagoff but let’s not blame him This was lost long before Sandy. The polls were right and Romney let the CIC skate on murder for weeks

No, the people cost us the election. It was all the government unions spending a billion on elections. It was the dependent people on the dole voting. It was also lots of women wanting government to take care of them with all these unfordable safety nets.

Been voting in five decades now. This election was THE ONE that changed a nation IMO for good.
Good bye the America of our founders and hello to the soon to collapse Americtopia.

Romney lost this election since he was selected in the primary as being a moderate that could sell the “lets all get along get along” line.

FAIL

Agree with every post here. can’t really see any positive in electing Obama. National security, economy, Supreme Court. But hey, young women can have “free” contraceptives. What does that tell you about the foolishness of our electorate?

The moderates weakness is that he’s a shallow version of a leftist, and when given a choice people will always choose the real version instead of the me too politician.

Oh BS. Romney won the popular vote. Romney himself lost this election. Didn’t go after Obama at all or not enough. Romney was WAY TOO arrogant the last weeks thinking he had this in the bag and didn’t have a good GOTV program.

The roots of this go back to the begginning of the 20th century. While the producers have been working harder and harder in the face of ever increasing government control the ranks of the looters have been growing and the progressives have taken over the schools and the bureaucracies. Ayn Rand was right all those years ago. She said that the real fight needed to be fought in the universities.

Christie needs to go no doubt. But the real issue is that we’ve ceded the mainstream media and the schools to the libs. We need to reverse Alinsky/Ayers and it’ll take decades.

You can see the real truth and are not in denial. The illegals and the 47

As much as Crowley and Christie were hurtful, they are not to blame for the loss. Given all the weaknesses and vulnerabilities Obama had - it should never, ever, have gotten to the point that these two events should have affected the outcome, even if they did.

The reality is, Romney - as a nice and decent a guy as he undoubtedly is - was simply not up to the task. Indeed, he was only a marginal improvement over McCain. The statistics bear this out.

Obama’s term was a target rich environment to attack - yet Romney never closed the gap. Ever. The fault for this must be placed squarely where it belongs - on the strategy, and in faulting the strategy, we must fault he who ultimately bore responsibility for it, Romney.

Romney was not bad at all folks. Our people have to some extent been brainwashed by a billion from government union employees, the press, during education by the teacher’s union and we have quite a few dependent on the dole.

Get the popcorn out, we are now Greece, here comes the crash and burn.

Do you seriously think that any GOP candidate has much against the media propaganda machine? I used to think that this was true, but frankly, our nation runs on the media to a great extent. It’s amazing how many lies or distortions you would get just for trying to disagree with Obama. Frankly, how would you like to face the media with your mind? or your thoughts? Many of us like to blame the candidates, but none of us really could do much better. We live in a time where the media is a rival world religion, pretty much. One-party rule comes around, and well, there’s still light at the end of the tunnel.

It was a little bit of everything, but mostly the Media, an incumbent president, then Candy Crowley, a little bit Chris Christie, and voter fraud.
Mitt turned out to be better than most expected, I don’t thunk Santorum, Gingrich or any of the others would have as come close.
