Well even 1980 was touch and go this far out from election day. Reagan was polling very close to Carter right up to the last week before the election. It looked like a dead heat, much like this 2012 election does now. Romney may yet win by a large "Reaganesque liberty loving landslide". We just don't know yet. And if Willard pulls it off it might be even more amazing than what Reagan did considering the demographic changes this country has seen.
But Romney was languishing in the weeds. Why? Because the world knows it's all a lie
Huh? Is this some kind of conspiracy theory? The world knows what's a lie?
We lost in the primaries Jim. Face the fact that the conservatives in the race just weren't very strong. Romney won because our preferred candidates were lackluster. Period. I'm not happy about it either, but folks just gotta get over it. Romney is what we've got and he is a heck of a lot better than Obama. Since when do we have some expectation that our general election candidate is going to be anything impressive anyway? In most of our lifetimes ONLY Ronald Reagan was worth truly getting excited about - and even he didn't cut government at all or follow through on many of the conservative policies many hoped for.
The image of Romney as a conservative is a lie.
Here’s Romney the liberal progressive in his own words:
The nomination of Ronald Reagan was a moment of change for millions of Americans as they embraced his conservatism and flocked to the Reagan party
It led Mitt Romney to leave the party and drop his republican registration that year, a dozen years later, Mitt Romney was running for office on his anti-Reaganism.
Now Romney is the republican presidential candidate that has spent 5 years creating the myth, in statement after statement, on TV and on radio, and in interviews, that just like himself, Reagan was "adamantly pro-choice", a rewrite of truth and history, reminiscent of the Soviet Union
“We lost in the primaries Jim. Face the fact that the conservatives in the race just weren’t very strong. Romney won because our preferred candidates were lackluster. Period. I’m not happy about it either, but folks just gotta get over it. Romney is what we’ve got and he is a heck of a lot better than Obama. Since when do we have some expectation that our general election candidate is going to be anything impressive anyway? In most of our lifetimes ONLY Ronald Reagan was worth truly getting excited about - and even he didn’t cut government at all or follow through on many of the conservative policies many hoped for. “
Our candidates lost due to a combination of many different problems. Number one, Mitt Romney had a lot of money to promote his lies. I recall that quite a few of the States Mittens won early on were actually the ones with the least voter participating than their average. In those he lost early on, voter participation was above the average. Mittens literally demoralized conservatives into staying home, leaving a minority that voted for him on the basis of his having a Presidential chin. Number two, Mittens had the support of the GOPe, especially on Bloody Thursday aided and abetted by Matt Drudge and so called “Republicans” releasing lies about Newt Gingrich’s personal character. This happened after Newt won big in Georgia. Number three, Rick Santorum was also running highly negative ads going after Newt’s character, while also running on the “God loves me better” and “I’m above it all” platform. Conservatives, therefore, were highly divided. Number four, Open Primaries early on tilted the early momentum to Mitt Romney’s favor, whereas conservative states like Texas didn’t even have a chance to vote for the nominee. Well, we did, but it didn’t matter at that point since they had all dropped out.
Whatever the case, to pretend that Mittens won it because he was the better candidate is absurd. He simply had the most money and he lied the most. He was the better liar, and the lucky usurper, but nothing more than that.
Obama the constitution ignoring, America-hating, communist wannabe dictator is infinitely worse than Carter. At least Carter was an American and he served his country. Obama is complete and utter Islamic world evil. I repeat, ANY conservative Republican would already have the full support of EVERY liberty loving American!!
