Thanks, but they are all over the place here blaming Romney.
I have a headline to throw at them, but of course they won’t pay any attention...they never do.
But just between us, the breaking news headline on FR is - “Obama’s winning coalition of women and non-whites...”
Oh yeah, we’re supposed to believe that a different candidate or with a different approach could have won over more of those Obama voters. Failing that, we’re supposed to believe that the “too pure to vote Romney Ryan in the swing states” crowd would have come out by the millions to sweep away the left and the misguided, if only a different candidate had run against Obama.
I don’t believe it. The evidence is not there. Some of those who sat home might have once been mainstreet conservatives who are now on disability and have dropped out of the process. Obama is turning this nation into dependency on steroids. Those who aren’t compromised by dependency but failed to vote against Obama in a swing state because they were “too good for Romney Ryan” are responsible, for it was easy to see that the very worst outcome was Obama Reid winning, and that’s what happened.
America was a center right nation. The Romney Ryan appeal was to that center right nation. It was traditional mainstreet conservatism if not rock ribbed, theoretical conservatism. Time was in America when their view was predominate and they would have won.
This is a different America and the electorate is responsible for how they vote, or don’t vote.
