Romney had 2 good runs — 2008 and 2012.
The 2012 race was Romney’s to lose, and he did.
First, he allowed Steffinofoagus (sp) to frame a question that seemed to reveal the callousness of the GOP regarding women’s issues: Do you support states banning contraceptives? [No state was trying to ban contraceptives. It was a red herring and Romney bit.]
Second, he allowed Crowley to engage in the debate regarding whether Obama used the word terrorism. After Obama yelled out ‘get the transcript, Candy’, Romney cowered away from anything related to foreign policy.
Instead of engaging the battle, Romney cowered. He should have used the foreign policy debate to bring up the then recent Benghazi attack, but he didn’t. He basically phoned in that 3rd debate.
I doubt he would manage to get even half of the delegate numbers he had in 2012.
