Exactly. My first reaction was that Romney lost because he was a lousy candidate, even less inspiring than McCain. But there was clear evidence of massive vote cheating in several swing states such as Pennsylvania and Florida. I suspect that if the count had been honest, Romney would have won.
But it's not entirely a matter of either/or. Massive vote cheating was only to be expected, with clinton having set the precedent (not to mention JFK and LBJ) and Obama clearly even worse than clinton. The only way to win was to take a strong stand and win massively, with too many votes to counteract even with vote cheating at the level of 3 or 4 million, which is probably what it all added up to. Just like Palin won the governorship in Alaska against two corrupt machines, Democrat and Republican.
Certainly Romney conceded too soon, and failed to stand up for his base. Even before the polls closed, the cheating was evident. And those districts where Obama won with 99% of the vote, and with more votes than registered voters, hardly could be defended.
I thought Romney ran because he felt ENTITLED to the job as a Mormon Bishop with a planet almost in his hands. But he behaved more as if his job was to cut off the conservative candidates at the knees with lying ads, and then cave in to Obama. Who was NOT a strong candidate. Obama had nothing to recommend him but race, welfare dependency, liberal idiocy, and corrupt cheating at the polls.
” I thought Romney ran because he felt ENTITLED to the job”
Jesus H. Christ, let's say I accept your null set -- even if Romney was promising a Planet Kolob in every driveway and magic underwear in every drawer, he was LIGHT-YEARS better than Bobo...
“Obama had nothing to recommend him but race, welfare dependency, liberal idiocy, and corrupt cheating at the polls. “
But....but..I thought what you and your ilk here on FR felt Obama had going for him the most was that he wasn’t a mormon, and that’s why you were so pleased that Romney lost.
demand a recount and that might have resulted in R2’s win. Heaven forbid that outcome.
you so called Christians here on FR are so transparent in your fear and loathing of mormonism, that it makes you accept the Muslim-hiding-in-plain sight as the better choice for America.
Newt would have taken it to Obama, but Newt was not our choice in the end, was he?
Dear Lord protect America from the next 4 years of BO.
