I voted for Romney. I would have must preferred he’d have won.
I doubt that would have changed the outcome of the ‘fiscal cliff’ because so long as the Democrats controlled any lever of power, they’d have fought for their agenda.
The GOP controls the House that controls the purse strings. That was more than enough to stand up for our beliefs. Hell, forget beliefs, the deal is stupid for the economy and will NOT bring in the revenue they suggest. The GOP had the power to do their jobs and protect the economy from this travesty.
They didn’t. They caved.
The GOP doesn’t stand up for our core convictions.
Rather, yeah. MUCH rather? Probably not. The premise of the article is pretty spot on. Dems fight to win (and also have the media covering for them). Republicans are the French surrender monkeys of the political world.
You can’t nominate this and expect to win. We tried to tell you but you wouldn’t listen.
Romney: The Boy Scouts should admit homosexuals
This deal would have been the same regardless. The same actors would have been involved. Romney without a Senate would be close to the same after 1/20. He shares the lack of conviction, and this would lead to capitulation. It would have required a sweep of all three to make much of a difference going forward. As long as the drive by media has someone to support, the majority of voters will not know what is happening.
