Baloney. We lost because the Republican leadership has been sitting on their collective butts for the past 20 years while the Dems have figured out what it takes to “get the vote out”. They work their butts off at the local level. Yes, they cheat like hell where they can but if the Republicans were as organized as the Dems, they would have won as the Romney voters would have overwhelmed the Obama voters.
Once the grassroots work night and day, to get the people elected, they eventually, become milk toast Republican so not to make waves. Term limits is the answer. Romney got a lot of votes thanks to the grassroots/TP. They do a heck a job on the ground but were seeing lot of voters throwing their hands up about the candidate.
FHS, some of you in the face of CLEAR evidence are just numbnutz! republicans LOST because of a rino! Why don't you get it? DOLE, MCCAIN, ROMNEY. I should throw Bush in the mix, even though he won by selection of the SC, it wasn't a clear victory at all!
Romney should have been a SLAM DUNK, but conservatives made up their mind after McCain. Conservatives told everyone. Screamed at the GOP, NO MORE RINOS, GOP!
I guess you really can't fix STUPID!
I wonder if the Bush dynasty has been behind the scenes since Bush senior lost in 1992? The Republicans ran Bob Dole who ran a totally lackluster campaign which allowed Clinton to get in for his second term. Then George W. Bush won in 2000 and again in 2004. Remember how Bush senior got really chummy with Clinton after the 2004 tsunami? Maybe they were working out a deal, George W. had won for the second time so it would be time for a Democrat in 2008. They know that the public swings back and forth between Democrat and Republican so they probably figured that the voters would be ready for a Democrat which was to be Hillary. McCain was the willing fall guy who would let Clinton win but to everyone’s surprise Obama cut in line, so McCain had to lose to Obama. Meanwhile Romney interfered with the Bush dynasty plan so his threat had to be diminished by filling the ranks with many Republican competitiors in order to divide up the vote.
Fast forward to 2012, once again there had to be a place holder who would lose to Obama. But Romney wanted to win, he didn’t get clearance from the Bush clan. So Obama won his second term as planned and now we hear voices from the peanut gallery about how Jeb Bush would make a great candidate and the reason that Romney lost was because the Hispanic vote didn’t like him. Well, guess who is married to a Latina? Jeb Bush. He also has two half-Hispanic kids and the Bush family have warm friendly feelings for Hispanic immigrants legal and illegal.
