“He said the program thought it had been hacked, which triggered a laborious process of rebooting the whole system with new passwords.”
My connections in the intelligence community seriously believe that this was a possibility.
You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
We still dont know what Mitts politics are, or why he invested so many years of his life and 55 million personal dollars to become president.
We do know that Mitt is a political disaster, in 20 years of running for office, and breaking spending records in every race, Mitt has a single victory to his name.
Mitt served a single term as Governor, destroyed the state party, was forced to give up his hope of reelection, and left office with 34% approval, and turning the office over to the democrats ever since.
Without even looking into his long political history, didnt his losing to the unfunded Huckabee and the old man McCain reveal how weak he is?
Was Romney allowed to invest some of his own money early on in the campaign? If so, why didn’t he? Another thing - the primaries go on way too long. That gave the other side a head start on their negative ads while Romney was still running to win the nomination and then had to wait for funding and financing to come in. His ads were too milquetoast and needed to hit harder on obama. Like McCain, they played the nice guy bit - never once attacking his policies. Sure, they would have called him a racist, but they were calling him that anyway. So, he should have rolled the dice and played the game. Even if it didn’t work - at least he could have put up more of a fight.
I’m sick of these GOPE types running our campaigns. They suck at it and we do nothing but lose with their misinformation. Romney was playing for the independent votes only - his “reaching across the aisle” meme was a losing strategy just as it was with McCain. Heck, it was probably McCain who told him to use that.
The campaign shut out the conservatives at the convention, as well as Ron Paul voters. Do you think this went unnoticed? No, it didn’t. Where was Newt? Either Newt or Sarah would have been far better key note speakers than Christie - who only patted himself on the back.
I’m going to be honest - I almost didn’t go vote on election day. I felt something so wrong, but went out of hoping to defeat obama. I could have stayed home and had the same outcome.
You let the entire country down. Jokers.
That would be 'his first time' because he's got a couple of other women out there pregnant, and no one knows where he is.
A low blow, sure, but making it real!

Wreckless stupidity. The republican party has -- for decades -- the best voter precinct database ever seen. You fools relied on untested technology instead of feet on the ground. Stupid, lazy, incompetent suits.
Rich Beeson, on the campaign’s strategy: “We won independents and held the base.
NOT! The base said FURINO!
“There’s a Sense That We Let Mitt Romney Down”
I recommend these guys commit suicide at once to make up for their disgrace. That would have the added benefit of making sure they never manage any campaign again and remove some GOP-e candy a**es permanently.
We're sick of the "reach across the aisle" types and are yearning for someone willing and able to kick a$$ and take names.
So they completely ignored history. This isn't anything new, they've been important for along time for the electorate. Clinton didn't say "I feel your pain" for nothing.
Just today, one potential Democrat Presidential candidate, Petraeus, was sent home to make pot holders. John Kerry went after Hillary Clinton. They’re trying to determine their candidate right now.
We not only let Romney down, we let America down!
Yeah it was them awful bigotted Mormons...

Pew analysis: Mitt Romney pulls in fewer Mormon votes than Bush
Summary According to a new Pew analysis, Republican Mitt Romney received a slightly smaller percentage of the Mormon vote than George W. Bush did in 2004, although Romney did see more of the Jewish vote than any recent GOP candidate.
Our take: According to a new Pew analysis, Republican Mitt Romney received a slightly smaller percentage of the Mormon vote than George W. Bush did in 2004, although Romney did see more of the Jewish vote than any recent GOP candidate.
“Some 80 percent of Mormons voted for Bush, while 78 percent voted for Romney, who is Mormon,” U.S. News reported. “That’s not to say Mormons weren’t in Romney’s corner this election. Pew points out that 78 percent means nearly 8 in 10 Mormons voted for Romney, while only 2 in 10 voted for Obama.”
According to Pew, exit polling data for Mormons was not available in 2000 and 2008.
“It appears that Bush simply received more of the religious vote overall, garnering more of the Catholic and Protestant vote than Romney as well,” the U.S. News report said. “Romney, however, received more of the Jewish vote than Bush or any recent GOP candidate, with 30 percent of Jewish voters casting ballots for Romney. Sixty-nine percent voted for Obama, a nine percentage point drop from 2008.”
Religiously unaffiliated voters were firmly in Obama’s corner in 2012, Pew said, coming in at 70 percent. More than six in ten voters who say they never attend religious services voted for Obama, while those who said they attended religious services a few times a month or year went for Obama over Romney by a 55 percent to 43 percent margin.
FCOL these people are stupidass numbnutz! Rino, rino, rino, rino, LOSERS, LOSERS, LOSERS!!!! The FACTUAL picture was right in front of your faces! The empirical data was overwhelming evident!
I guarantee the republican party will do the exact same thing next election. There is no way around it, the GOPe are just plain idiots.
Mitt’s a good & decent man, but he does not belong in politics. He has no understanding of the monsterous evil that American leftism has become. He could not fight this evil & allowed this evil to paint him as the “bad guy”. In the end....he would have made a great president for the 1950s when this was still America. And that’s no insult to Mitt. We live in evil times.
Romney ran a Johnny One Note Campaign. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..
They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obamas energy policies..(a socialist construct never branded as such) and a bread and butter issue which reaches every into “demographics” pocketbook...The impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents and on and on. Including rampant corruption . Some were very briefly touched most weren’t and Benghazi was left to languish. Then there is Obama’s personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it.
Instead we got a sales pitch on executive ability but not the reason why one should toss the old model and buy his.
In addition Rove who I understand was handling the Senate PAC campaign and played games. His material
never warned voters that if Obama gets re-elected as well as senate the chances of repealing Obama care ...AND ALL THE TAX INCREASES THAT GO WITH IT WILL NEVER GET REPEALED Let alone tie into or cover the formentioned grape shot which would have perhaps changed that body.
Finally they didn’t believe the polls which turned out were dead on. Even setting up focus groups which could have looked into what’s going on . Even to the point of going out to local eateries and bars and eavesdrop into conversations and pick up on topics being discussed.
Our local rural blue county GOP had at the outset good and growing attendence at their meetings 50 plus. At the meeting the Thursday before the election about a dozen showed up and I knew we were in trouble .
Nuts...This loss is inexcuseable
The election was stolen that is why this didnt make sense. And the GoP is too sissy to go after the robbers and obtain justice. God bless Col. West. Someone has courage.
