RE “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.”

Romney had a really basic problem. There was very little he believed in.
He probably believed in tax cuts for the rich (as he is rich) and cutting some regulations, but that was it and as I saw it he ran as play-dough saying anything he thought sounded good at the moment.
And he came off some-what weak except the first debate where O played passive. There was no vision, he was a robot.
Compare these:

Conservative visionary:
I have been traveling the country on my campaign and what I see is the great American spirit thirsting to succeed but being held back by powers both government and private almost too great and complex to even understand. Americans don't want handouts from others. They want to succeed and feel proud of themselves for it and to be able to lift others up by being able to offer them good paying jobs with a future.
Obama doesn't offer them a future. He offers them the chains of government dependent slavery. That is death, a living death. Americans wont accept that on election day. That is not what being American is about.
Well I tell voters: elect me and I will break those chains that are holding them back,
I know what the government is doing wrong and what it can do to stop this. I have turned around companies and created XXxs of real jobs, not government make-work jobs and food stamps that he offers that just put this country in more debt. Please vote XX on election day and help turn this country around.
And God bless”

Uninspiring Loser(Mitt) :
Whispering to contributor while being secretly recorded:
Things are really bad out there. Half the countries voters are a bunch of lazy moochers who just want free handouts and they they want the government to take them from us to give to them. You need to deep in your pockets for $$$ so I can try to hold them off for a while”

Insulting the voters always works Mitt.
Romney was a loser. He shamed himself by running.

I have little concern for him shaming himself, and I’m sure you don’t either. It just galls me that he took a slot an actual Conservative could have taken.

I’m banking on it being Jeb Bush that will fill the Romney roll in 2016.

You do it in ads, and in the debates, and get away from these sterile answers designed not to offend.

You don’t run an entire campaign based on the premise that Obama is “a nice guy who is simply over his head.” You don’t agree that he and Biden merely “inherited a mess” and haven’t quite gotten us out of it YET.

Why we lost, in a nutshell.
