Skip to comments.Don't blame Romney

Because what tonights election showed is that the American electorate has degraded very, very badly in the last decade. Exit polling indicates that this electorate was a D+6 electorate. 38 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican. I didnt think that was possible. I was wrong. Obama ran and won with an atrocious record, without anything remotely resembling a positive agenda for a second term, with a campaign based on lies, slander and hatred. Thats what he ran on. And thats what he won on.

and we picked a liberal-moderate for this??
We are so screwed.
I agree, this was not a Romney problem as far as I’m concerned.
The shift in demographics and political disposition has been well underway for awhile now, this didn’t happen overnight, and the trend has been clear from looking at past elections. Now it’s bearing real (rotten) fruit.
I agree. It’s the electorate.
It resulted from a 2 decade orgy of immigration from third world and latin hell holes. And from about 20 years of intensive propaganda in the schools about pro-gay, pro-abortion, America is evil, Islam is peace, everybody wins a blue ribbon etc.
The 18 to 30 generation is nearly a total loss. Nothing is more important them than homosexuality and free birth control.
I like Ryab but he added nothing to this ticket.
All about style. Needed a woman, Latino, or black.
1% would have swung it. Spend more on ground game and less on TV. Dems beat us on the ground game early voting.
I didn’t pick Romney. By the time my state held its primary, Romney was already annointed as the nominee. My state had no choice.
Romney-Ryan failed to win the election because they failed to inform and educate the voters when they tried to not offend women and independent voters. McCain tried the same strategy and lost, and now Romney lost using the same softpeddling strategy. Reagan didn’t softpeddle and won.
How many people think the Republican Party will learn from these failures and conclude they must persuade people about the ugly truths of the Democrat frauds?
This is a really sick country, if you ask me.
I don’t blame Romney. Romney and his family did a very good job for us. I detested Romney in the primaries but I have come to respect the man. The man, not his politics.
Nobody could have done any better for us and I doubt anybody would have worked nearly as hard. Romney didn’t win this but he and his family certainly earned my respect. They gave up much to do this and I truly believe it was love of country and well, for his dad.
I thank him and Ryan. They gave up much to do this for us. I am just sorry that this country has deteriorated as far as it has, this nation corrupt.
Indeed it is, and contrary to what many people are saying, the electorate frankly have lost the ideals of earned wealth. Our country is pretty much getting salvaged as we speak.
I have an 18 and a 20 yr old... Both voted Ronney. Both have worked on campaigns for real conservatives. If we don’t rescue this generation, we are in big trouble.
Dems won the ground game with vote fraud
Ok, Rombots. Let the excuses begin.
“All about style. Needed a woman, Latino, or black.”
People would see it as another Palin style gimmick. If it’s going to work, it will have to be the top of the ticket. That person will have to fight his or her way through the primaries. Cain tried but he wasn’t properly vetted (no political experience just isn’t going to work) so that was the end of that.
a campaign based on lies, slander and hatred. Thats what he ran on. And thats what he won on.
And that is what we are going to get for the next
four years or more.
Democrats are more vicious in victory, a win only
empowers them to utilize the power gained to their
Valery said it very well, they will not forget
who opposed them...
I don’t blame Romney at all. He ran the very best Reagan Republican style campaign that could possibly be run, given the MSM’s biases. He did everything right, and it still wasn’t enough. His loss has shown once and for all that the old Reagan coalition is no longer operative and cannot achieve a governing majority.
2010 was not a D+6 electorate.
I am not pleased...hope this turns around.
I fear by 2016, though, any sembelance of this nation at the beginning of the century will be gone.
Hunker down, love God and your family, and keep the bastards from winning. They cannot take your soul.
I agree it wasn’t Romney’s fault.
It’s shifting demographics, plain and simple.
The GOP will never win again as long as the looters can vote to fill their pockets.
I don’t think any other candidate that ran in the primary would have done better, I think all of them would have done worse.
I’m not encouraged for America that it was close.
Because it was close enough, I blame stupid democrats that voted for Obama and stupid conservatives that didn’t vote for Romney.
