Obama won because he turned out his base by being as far-left as they wanted him to be, including endorsing same-sex marriage, and he demonized his opposition.
If we had energized the right-wing of the party and bashed Obama on every issue at every turn without pulling any punches, we would’ve won. Obviously Romney pretty much did the latter in the first debate for a total of 90 minutes of his campaign, and won it handily with a 5-point bump in the polls. Then we heard they decided to “back off” totally by the 3rd debate because they were afraid they’d create “sympathy” for Obama if they kept being tough on him.
But conservatives, RINO, GOP elites and tea party are busy fighting each other.
Liberals have education system, unions, media, hollywood......
Conservatives just have Foxnews, and Rupert Murdoch has to handle the crisis in UK.
