I disagree. People think of Ronald Reagan as this guy who gives great speeches. Actually, Reagan was a seasoned political operative from his days as president of the Screen Actors Guild all the way through California's governorship. The problem with Romney is that he's a political novice - he's only won one election in his life and never spent any time figuring out the ins-and-outs of winning elections. Romney has 20 IQ points or more on GWB, but GWB has superior political judgment from being immersed in politics his whole life.
I read that Romney’s ground campaign was practically non existent. Where did the 1 billion go?
One reason why it bothered me that McCain picked Palin. She’d be a better candidate today if she was ‘allowed’ to quietly finish her term and get re-elected.
And W had Rove.
Love him or hate him, the guy knew how to win.
