Sowell :”One of the biggest differences between Reagan and these latter-day losers (R candidates) was that Reagan paid great attention to explaining his policies and values. He was called “the great communicator,” but much more than a gift for words was involved. The issues that defined Reagan’s vision were things he had thought about, written about and debated for years before he reached the White House......
Very few Republican candidates for any office today show any sign of such in-depth preparation on issues. Mitt Romney, for example, inadvertently showed his lack of preparation when he indicated that he was in favor of indexing the minimum wage rate, so that it would rise automatically with inflation. “

He is copying me now. I call them losers. HA-HA

Exactly my take too. I have posted this many times.
Romney was very uninspiring and was so play-dough that O could mold him into the image of a monster. Exactly what O did.

To an extent, I agree with the talk of ‘uninspiring’. When I compare Romney’s talk with Obama’s though, the guy was very inspiring.

I very much agree with the comments about Reagan explaining his positions better. And we all know the reason for this. Romney was hawking new positions.

There were a number of times I found myself wanting Romney to say something that was an obvious powerful comeback to Obama, and it didn’t happen. That’s how you lose.

If you let the other guy have the point, when you’ve got plenty of great things you could say, you’re not going to do as well in the election as you could have.

And if you don’t capitalize on your adversary’s negatives, you’re just faking a run at the presidency to a varying degree.

Romney didn’t fight for his positions at all. He did not articulate what free markets are. He did not explain the Obama 16 trillion. He did not explain anything in detail. He sucked like a wimpy amateur. Obama painted him as a rich white Wall Street guy, who didn’t care about anybody. Romney brought a cap pistol to a gunfight. He was also a RINO with a bad paper trail. He lost.

regarding min wage things, how friggin hard is it to articulate that every rise in the min, is essentially a paycut for everyone else, and eventually that McDouble will have to rise in price too, adding inflation to said paycut ???

we really needed a mittens photo-op of him buyin a gallon of milk or a hamburger to show how he relates to the proles...
