There will always be disagreement about Mitt. Mitt was about as classy as a non-Christian could get. But that’s neither here nor there.
Mitt would have won a theoretical universally compulsory plebiscite. The Rats ginned up a bigger proportion of their voters, enough to squeak Barack back over the top. The GOP can’t be chicken, fearing that they will brown off all the Democrats who voted for Obama. They need to be bold, to get interest revived among their friends.
I don’t think it matters who our nominee was. The 0bama Media was there to help him regardless. Unfortunately some in here went right along without realizing what they did.
Mitt’s campaign let him be destroyed by BO. They never once took the gloves off and had so many opportunities to do it. Obama was/is scandal ridden, corrupt and a liar. No one knows his background and he has driven the economy into the ground. Mitt should have destroyed him personally, like he did his fellow Republican candidates but he never did. Should have destroyed him and kept on no matter what the press said. It may have opened a few eyes.
You got it. The GOP played nice and "reached across the aisle" after Bush was President and they controlled Congress, instead of pushing their agenda. They seemed to be afraid of losing, and didn't want to provoke the leftists and their MSM into attacking them.
But the leftists and their MSM were going to attack them regardless, and they did lose, first Congress in 2006, then everything. The sad part is that the GOP has nothing to lose by making a stand since the lefties will continue to attack them regardless of what they do, and plenty to gain by standing up for Conservative principles, so they could at least give us a reason to support them. Too bad they can't see that far ahead.
Excuse me? Come again? Were you around during the primaries? And what was that about having his staffy trolls running to the MSM every weekend for three years, telling tales out of school (some of them even halfway true) about Sarah Palin? And before Sarah, about Fred Thompson. The way Mitt's guys told it, Fred was the biggest abortionist in America. He had roast baby for breakfast, did Fred.
But that’s neither here nor there.
Yes, it is "here or there" -- how Romney won the nomination, is exactly why he lost the general.
Obama spotted Romney a 7,000,000-vote decline from Obama's 2008 popular vote, but Mitt couldn't catch him -- he himself sent the conservatives home empty and cashless, reviled and rebuked them, and then expected them to come out and vote for him in the general. He sneered about Texas conservative voters, "They'll come to me when I'm the last man standing." No, Mitt, they didn't and they won't; they don't respond to arrogant candidates like you.
