Because we nominated Romney - we pissed away our chance of hamstringing Obama.
This is so terrible - had we simply defended the ground, we would only have to make up 3! Count ‘em, 3! Seats.
Get a dose of reality. Murdoch and Brown lost. Was it Romney’s fault that Murdoch made a stupid comment about Abortion? Connie Mack and George Allen ran horrible campaigns.
We weren’t going to defend the ground, because we were pretty certain to lose Maine, which we really didn’t have anyway. And it’s hard to be surprised that democrats won back the Mass. Senate Seat.
But it’ amazing that we lost Indiana? Richard Lugar’s old seat?
And North Dakota, Missouri, and Montana should have been easy pickups.
In fact, it could be argued that both idiotic statements contributed to the defeat at the top much more so than the other way around.
