Ronald Reagan wouldn’t have beaten Obama yesterday.

I disagree. I don't know how old you are -- but if you are under 40 you don't know Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was NOT afraid of the media. Sam Donaldson was just as liberal as the ones out there today, and Reagan handled him with no problem. Romney lacked the killer instinct. That's why he didn't win.He should have at the very least done interviews on the conservative media. P.S. Sorry about getting upset, especially if you are OVER 40 -- but I got very upset with the author of a thread last night titled "Obama is the new Ronald Reagan." I wrote to the lib author and he wrote back, admitting he only remembered Reagan "imperfectly." Ronald Reagan won 49 states in 1984. So please don't tell me Obama could have beaten him.

Yes! A bit how Gingrich did it except for one thing. Gingrich appeared to be angry (a liberal may also claim he acted “mean”) but Reagan could do it and turn it into a humorous event that just happened.

I actually worked on a senatorial campaign in 1980(a college semester credited project) and I can tell you Jimmy Carter couldn’t inspire a cat to walk out of a paper bag... pretty much any other of the top Republcans who ran for the nomination including George HW Bush in 1980 would have beaten Carter in 1980.. all it took was a decent showing in a debate and Carter was done.. Romney (of 2012) would have destroyed Carter too.... 53% of the electorate were not ready to toss out Obama yesterday no matter who would have run against him..

I’m 55 and I hate to break to you but you are the one who is wrong.

In 1980 Magnus won the election with 55-56% of the White Vote.

Blacks voted as usual and latinos were a non issue as were orientals

Tuesday Romney got 59-61% (depends which exit poll) of the white vote and lost.

Hispanics voted 72-75%...for Obama

Blacks 93-95%...for Obama

The nation was 88% white in 1980

Now it’s 73%

There it is ain’t rocket science but no....Reagan would likely have lost too.

But we’ll never know will we.

Reagan would have had to pull 62-65% white good or better than 2010

and given northern and west coast liberal whites unlikely...

now where I come from 90% of whites vote GOP...God the irony of that lol..and they are rioting right now at my alma mater

and freepers fret about “wassism”

lord....the pitiful that be here

struck down with a captive bolt in the hands of the teeming non white masses on a mission of vengeance and still totally oblivious to what is happening

no wonder we lose and lose and lose..with nary a fight...just a whimper
