Look, everything I ever said about Mitt was exactly true.

1) He’s a very, very good man.

2) He is a manager, not a leader.

3) He was Obama’s dream candidate to run against - a perfect fit for the RAT template they wanted to run on.

4) He has undeveloped, or poor, political skills. It turned out that actively snubbing the Paulistinians, Newt’s followers, and the Sarah brigade was both unnecessary and foolish. A good politician would have kissed all of them, without giving away anything important.

Your (4) is wrong. Mitt Romney is and will forever be "The Man Who Humiliated A President".

Nothing will ever be the same for Bobo after that First Debate revealed him to be utterly incompetent for the job. The boobs that voted to rob the Treasury don't care about Bobo's competence. At All.

5) Paul Ryan as Romney’s running mate was Zero’s wet dream.

Very good point, and I think you are right. Perhaps he needed more to demonstrate, for the benefit of flush contributors, the essential RiNO posture of showing the Main Street Republican scum his ass, than actually unifying the Party.

He did say, contemptuously, about Texas conservative voters who didn't get a chance to vote before it was all over ('Rats pettifogged the State in court into moving the primary from April, when things were still hot and heavy, all the way to May 29th), that he didn't need to campaign here in Texas because "they'll come to me when I'm the last man standing". That was either carelessly or deliberately bad political speech directed to people he needed to turn out.

It's interesting that politicians still seem to think they can say something in a locked room full of sympathetic Hesychasmists, something mildly derogatory or even openly contemptuous of non-Hesychasmists, and it won't be all over the 'Net and percolating through society long before the election.
