  • The story behind Mitt RomneyÂ’s loss in the presidential campaign to President Obama

    It was two weeks before Election Day when Mitt Romney's political director signed a memo that all but ridiculed the notion that the Republican presidential nominee, with his better ground game could lose the key state of Ohio or the election. The race is “unmistakably moving in Mitt Romney's direction, the memo said. But the claims proved wildly off the mark, a fact embarrassingly underscored when the high-tech voter turnout system that Romney himself called “state of the art” crashed at the worst moment, on Election Day. To this day, Romney’s aides wonder how it all went so wrong...

    1) Corrupt Media If the media slanted towards Romney like they did Obama, we'd have won by ten points. Candy Crowley 2nd debate performance completely epitomized the corruptness of the media. Libya, Solyndra, Fast and Furious. Imagine those under a Republican president. We need to change the media, not ourselves. How I don't know. 2)Demographics More minoriites, more single adults, don't spell a picture for electoral success. Bush and Rove deserve a lot blame for this, as they should have been protecting our border and our soveirgnty rather than pushing amnesty. So much for Rove's "permanent Republican majority" 3) Chris...

    Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America's top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat. Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

    By Dr Phil TavernaThe first Presidential debate was fun to watch. 67 % of those polled thought Obama would win. I didn't think Obama could win. There would be no teleprompter to help him along. There would be no screaming ideologs to faint for Obama. Obama was all alone with nothing but his ideology.For months Obama and the liberals have crowded the airways with millions of dollars worth of ads that were for the most part nothing but lies. And the best part was to see Obama try to repeat the lies as though Governor Romney was just going to...

    DEBATE THIS! The presidential debate Wednesday night was the most tweeted about event in political history, and, it's still being talked about this morning.Jon Stewart, appearing on Good Morning America today to tout his own upcoming debate (Saturday in Washington) with Bill O'Reilly, assessed President Obama and Mitt Romney."I think we can all be satisfied in this election that no matter what happens, we're going to have an incredibly good-looking president," cracked Stewart. "That was some beefcake up there last night. The two of them. And when they take this thing into the swimsuit competition...."He continued: "There's not a...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:To be perfectly honest, I didn't think Romney had it in him. The first presidential debate was a stunning wake-up call to President Obama and his gushing followers. Romney was in total command of the debate, hammering the incumbent on his failed economic policies, refusing to allow Obama to frame the debate with the usual Democratic Party bumper sticker talking points. Obama looked more like the challenger than a sitting president. Romney kept his square jaw up and facing the president, smiling - Reagan-like - while Obama hurled one tired charge after another.Even the Obama media was forced...

    The split screen told the story -- when Mitt Romney was speaking, President Barack Obama was looking down; when Obama was speaking, Romney was looking at the president. "It has killed jobs," Romney said during Wednesday's debate about the politically charged health care law pushed by Obama. "Obamacare, the Congressional Budget Office has said, will cost $2,500 a year more than traditional insurance." Romney looked at the crowd, moderator Jim Lehrer and even Obama during the exchange. Obama, on the other hand, looked down, shook his head and sporadically looked at his Republican adversary. The directness in that one exchange...

    Mitt Romney is delivering a strong speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars right now in Nevada. He was tough on the Obama administration, most emphatically on national-security leaks (a “crisis” — emphasizing it “isn’t a partisan issue”) and Israel (“The people of Israel deserve better than what they have received from the leader of the free world. And the chorus of accusations, threats, and insults at the United Nations should never again include the voice of the President of the United States”), and Iran. And the Poles George Weigel has been talking to would be happy to hear what...

    Next year could be a banner one for Mormons in the nation’s capital, with their numbers and influence likely to grow whether or not Mitt Romney is elected president. Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) could raise the number of Mormons in the upper chamber to seven, should he and Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) win in November.Depending on who controls the Senate, it will have either have a Mormon Senate majority leader in Harry Reid (D-Nev.) or a Mormon president pro tempore and Finance Committee Chairman in Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). And if Romney wins the White House, not only will the...

    One demographic has plagued Obama since his primary duel with Hillary Clinton: white voters without a college degree. Although Obama ultimately won enough white non-college voters to win the presidency in 2008, his performance was underwhelming by historic standards. And over the last four years, Obama’s already tepid support among white voters without a college degree has collapsed. At the same time, the “newer” elements of the Democratic coalition—college educated and non-white voters—have continued to offer elevated levels of support to the president. The latest polls show this trend continuing, indicating an unprecedented education gap among white voters—a gap that...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/07/2012 | Meagan Clark and Gage Smith
    Former Gov. Mitt Romney would collect at least 72 of the 110 electoral votes available in eight battleground states if President Barack Obama’s current polling numbers, as reported by The Huffington Post, are overstated by a mere one percent. Romney would win that electoral majority in Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Wisconsin if there is a one percent undercount and if undecided voters there split evenly between Romney and Obama. That would give the former Massachusetts Gov. at least 253 — just a few votes shy of the 270 he will need to claim the White...

    Why A Principled-Conservative, Bible-Believing Protestant, and Counter-cult Expert Will Vote for Mitt Romney 1. Politics is not the church. It is the art of the possible. Often we choose the lesser of two evils, which is also the evil of two lessers. It is a fallen world. Get over it. Be romantic and optimistic in the primaries (as I was with Michele Bachmann); then get realistic when things narrow down. 2. Protest votes are pointless. They send no message, except that you have robbed the better of the two candidates of a vote. Like it or not, we are stuck...

How about if Palin were to go 3rd party (not going to happen I know...just curious how it would be received here) Before anyone accuses me of being a Paulbot or Romneybot, check my posting history. I'm all in for Newt. I just know that I will never cast a vote for Romney, however I will still support GOP Reps and Senators. In my mind...

    SUMTER, S.C -- SUMTER, S.C.- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said his record at Bain Capital which included buying and later closing down a photo album plant in Gaffney is the same as President Barack Obama's record in bailing out the auto industry. "What the president has done overseeing GM and Chrysler has been reminiscent of what people in the private equity industry do. To try and save the business, you have to cut back to a core that matches the revenue of the business," Romney said Saturday in an interview with The State's editorial board. "And so, the president...

    At last week’s Summit of the Americas, President Obama acquiesced to a 50-minute attack on America as terroristic, expansionist, and interventionist from Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega. His response to Ortega’s denunciation of our effort to free Cuba from Castro’s dictatorship was that he shouldn’t be blamed “for things that happened when I was three months old.” Blamed? Hundreds of men, including Americans, bravely fought and died for Cuba’s freedom, heeding the call from newly elected president John F. Kennedy.....
