1) Hes a very, very good man.
2) He is a manager, not a leader.
3) He was Obamas 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, Newts 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.
Two statements in cognitive dissonance.
Romney was right about the 47% (more or less -- it turned out to be 52% or something), and yes, he humiliated Obozo.
The point is, Zero didn't need to be or do anything, to be elected by the looters.
All a 'Rat President needs is the phone number of the Director of the IRS and Treasury Secretary.
