I'm really tired of that sentiment. Yes -- I voted for Romney. But the GOP establishment tried really hard to get all the Conservatives out of the race. Romney was "the one" from the very beginning. His campaign against other Republicans had fire, but his campaign against Obama was "phoned in". He had no ideas, no policies, no fire. He was a poor candidate who did not attract attention or votes. He lost.
And you want to blame us?

Agree 100% And he lost for not being Conservative enough! How sad that But for a few worm-eaters we would have obozocare repealed.
We need the BEST and MOST CONSERVATIVE candidates we can get (see my post about my guy Ted Cruz).
But I 100% guarantee NO ONE will meet the FR “R U CNRVTV ENUF” test. NO ONE!
So we need to understand that the Scott Browns are sometimes the best we can do (like my 1st HS g/f). If you can get and run a Ted Cruz, GREAT!! Do it!
If not, it is time to settle for the lesser of all evils: The lowest RINO is 1,000% better than the most moderate liberal.

For 5 years I'd been telling folks ~ as well as explaining the whys of it all ~ that Romney was the least likely candidate to be able to win against Obama ~ yet they persisted in nominating him.
I am not responsible for that bit of the most utterly stupid political event since the Republicans ran Wendell Willkie (who really was a registered Democrat).
When the party big dogs put in a guy who can't win, it's all their fault.
