Although he was my last choice, Mitt Romney was a great candidate. People need to quit this second guessing the GOP and focus on the fact that half the country believes in a socialist government. They can argue that there were groups of illegal voters, people want government handouts ... the real bottom line is that half the people want socialism.

Agree with all you said, except I don't believe quite half the electorate truly wants socialism.

My guess is the number of hard-Leftists who really want socialism is "only" about 20%. Maybe 25%.

The other 25%-26% of the electorate who voted for Obama were:

- naive college kids who want to be hip
- blacks who vote only on the basis of racial solidarity
- lazy unemployed whites who have gotten used to the federal benefit gravy train
- Hispanics rewarding Obama for his pandering, including his unconstitutional gift to 800,000 "dreamers" last June (Obama's ace-in-the-hole)
- a lot of befuddled white women who just "felt bad" for Obama, didn't want to refuse him a "second chance," and bought into the blame-Bush lies

I may have been responding to another poster. I serves no one to have open several pages on an iPhone.

Very cute.

It’s not my fault.

It cannot be disingenuous because it was in response to a remark that you “wouldn’t want so and so to represent you” without further elaboration. You committed the ad hominem without basis.
