I think Romney would have beat Obama in 2008 esp with the economy crisis we had, but more importantly from the debating stand point. McCain was terrible.
I agree with your post.
We had three years where Bush was basically getting pounded by the MSM nonstop without much pushback.
Then “gentleman” McLame comes to a gunfight with the Chicago mob and brings a bb rifle.
The Clintons were apparantly afraid to use their vaunted private detective force on Obama because the Chicago mob had incriminating evidence on them - Vince Foster maybe?
I’m not a Romney fan but I believe he will have an effective campaign against Baraq and just maybe a Mormon dirty tricks squad that makes Axlegrease and Plouffe look like grade schoolers.
