I will view Governor Romney in a positive way looking back. Here was a truly decent man. Had he been running against another decent man, he would have won. In fact, I might go out on a limb and say he was one of the most decent men to run for president in history.
Romney will serve as a tragic example of character assassination at its worst. His is a story of a squeeky clean, all-American father and grandfather who had achieved the American dream, with the experience to fix our economic woes, demonized and turned into a monster by the MSM and the Chicago team.
By the end, I had a lot of respect for Mitt, and I wish him all the best, along with his wonderful wife and family.
You were up against Stalin, Mitt. Unfortunately, nobody beats Uncle Joe.
It will be interesting if we hear from Mitt over the next few years as we’ve heard from Palin and McCain. It would be good to see him again :)
Romney should never have been involved in republican politics, he needs to be driven far away and never heard from again.
After reassuring the left that he still supported homosexual Boy Scout leaders and homosexualizing the military, Mitt said this in an interview with Scott Pelly.
Mitt Romney on August 27, 2012, in a CBS interview.
PELLEY: Well, the platform as written at this convention for the Republicans does not allow for exceptions on abortion with regard to the health of the mother or rape or incest. Is that where you are?
ROMNEY: No. My position has been clear throughout this campaign. Im in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.

Yeah the way Willard attacked and assasinated the charactors of the other GOP candidates and Governor Sarah Palin was disgusting ...
I wholly agree with everything you wrote. Romney wasn’t my preferred candidate during the primaries and in fact he ticked me off at times, but i thought he ran a strong campaign and certainly deserved to win far more than his opponent. More than that it looked like his was well on his way to victory right before Sandy stormed ashore and rescued Obama, perhaps the luckiest politician who has ever lived.
So was Romney really that bad?
In the end blaming him doesn’t help much and isn’t even fair in my opinion. He picked a conservative running mate and campaigned much more to the right than most of us expected. He also fought hard and was drawing huge, passionate crowds everywhere he went. From my perspective Romney did more than well enough to not only win, but win easily.
Obama didn’t beat Romney. Ultimately the money (how much of it was foreign) and the media combined with the last-minute flukey storm was what swept him back into the Oval Office. Perhaps too Romney’s Mormonism hurt him with Evangelicals more than anyone anticipated and way too many of them stayed home for that reason.
But in any event i really hope that we’ll all be united in directing our anger at the mainstream media, at all those in their ranks who have betrayed the country along with every journalistic principle that they are supposed to aspire to. That is far more constructive than tearing ourselves apart, which is exactly what the left wants us to do.
My hope is that 2012 will live in infamy for the media. May they never live down their deplorable conduct.
