I don’t blame social issues, but I will give part, and only part, of the blame to certain candidates who are focused on social issues and who were clearly awful candidates.
There are good people out there who are:
A: correct on all or most of the issues, social included.
B: NOT part of the GOP establishment
C: have an IQ of over 80.
D: have ability, talent, some presence, and can articulate.
Sadly, too many jump on the bandwagon of candidates with only items and A and B. I suggest we also consdier items C and D. Funny, Bauer himself was one of the items A and B only kind of candidates....years ago....

We can talk about this until the cows come home, but I think it's pretty obvious to me what happened here. Romney lost because he simply didn't do anything to distinguish himself as a candidate. On so many of these issues, his own well-documented track record -- in the only elected office he ever held -- was identical to that of Barack Obama.
Yeah, that's a winning ticket.
