We got beat. The Democrats had something to do with it, just as the Yankees had something to do with Lee’s defeat at Gettysburg. Our consultants weren’t the problem.
To the extent there was something significantly wrong with our side, it was the candidates. Romney was the only major figure in the race once Perry fizzled, and Romney simply could not exploit the No. 1 issue of Obamacare because of his support of an almost identical single-payer medical insurance plan in Massachusetts.
If our nominee has to run away from our best issue, we gotta problem.
“Romney was the only major figure in the race once Perry fizzled”
Who won more states, Romney in 2008, or Santorum in 2012?
Yes...Romney was the worst choice! We need to repair the primary system asap.
