” One of the biggest differences between Reagan and these latter-day losers 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.”
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.
I don’t disagree with that. What I have a hard time believing is that Obama would appeal to anyone in large numbers after his four year record.
And Romney ran a campaign that was centered around “Obama is just a nice guy whose policies just didn't work out” imagining that his (Romney's) win would be automatic, and many here believed that BS. We never heard “Obama wants you on welfare” from Romney going after his character.
Meanwhile Obama ran the most negative campaign of all time completely destroying Romney's character painting him as a 'Let them eat cake' elitist who hates the voters.
So here we are with Obama going after Bohner with an apparent position of superiority and Republicans in congress terrified of Obama who has not a scratch from Romney.
So we learn anything from this?
