Romney would have had a whole lot less votes without the loons and wackos. The ones that voted for Obama wouldn’t have voted for Romney if he ditched us, the loons and wackos. As I see it Romney did keep his distance from the far right.
Most of the press would have voted for Obama no matter what. Maybe Romney could have won if they didn’t pick sides? Maybe the press should show more respect to free speech. They only want their speech recognized.
That’s the problem with our media—they’re all a bunch of flockin’ mini-tyrants.
Romney’s treatment of the Tea Party, especially Sarah Palin came back to bite him in the ass.
I don't see why they are blaming us. Most of us supported Romney, sometimes reluctantly, but by and large we did since we knew Obama was so much of a worse choice. We voted for the guy. We helped financially. Some of us campaigned for him. How much more can we do? And somehow we're the "problem"? How are you a problem if you end up supporting the party's candidate? Why is that a problem? Would it have been less of a problem for Romney if we didn't? Would that magically have gotten him more votes somehow?
It appears to me that a bigger problem is that the majority of the electorate preferred Obama. They want more free stuff from da gummint. That's a much bigger problem for the country as a whole than conservatives who supported the nominee.
