    Why Romney Lost

    First, Obama ran a masterful ground game.  To win every swing state except North Carolina was incredible.

    Secondly - The only position Romney didn't flip flop on was Immigration.  And oddly, it was the most overblown issue of the election.

    Illegal immigration is at it's lowest point in decades.  Obama has deported more illegals in his 4 years in office than Bush did in 8 years.  It was a non-issue for this election cycle.  And harping on it cost Romney the Hispanic vote.

    Third, the 47% comment.  Really Romney? 

    Fourth, an editorial against the bailout of the US Auto Industry.  Really?  Let the US auto industry go Bankrupt when the financial sector is collapsing.  really?

    Fifth, Akin and Mourdock.  They helped the dems paint republicans as anti-women and certainly helped Warren beat Brown.

    Sixth, the only general election Romney ever ran was against the current Head of the Boston Area Girl Scouts.

    Yes it was, his team did run a skillful by the numbers campaign.

    Secondly - The only position Romney didn't flip flop on was Immigration.  And oddly, it was the most overblown issue of the election.

    This is BS as all candidates evolve over time like Obama on DOMA.  Although immigration did cost him Latino votes and the election.

    Illegal immigration is at it's lowest point in decades.  Obama has deported more illegals in his 4 years in office than Bush did in 8 years.  It was a non-issue for this election cycle.  And harping on it cost Romney the Hispanic vote.

    Yes

    Third, the 47% comment.  Really Romney? 

    This comment was overblown and very similar to Obama's mid westerners slight about clinging to their guns and bibles.

    Fourth, an editorial against the bailout of the US Auto Industry.  Really?  Let the US auto industry go Bankrupt when the financial sector is collapsing.  really?

    True this cost him the difference in OH and MI, not that he was wrong.

    Fifth, Akin and Mourdock.  They helped the dems paint republicans as anti-women and certainly helped Warren beat Brown.

    Romney mishandled the war on women issue and social issues never should have been so important to an election.  Those two butheads cost Romney and the GOP two seats.

    Sixth, the only general election Romney ever ran was against the current Head of the Boston Area Girl Scouts.

    I think Romney lost because he didn't stand for anything. You can't beat something with nothing .

    The clue is that the GOP put up a liberal republican governor against a radical democrat.  The entire debate was from the fifty yard line to the goal post for the liberals.

    Incorrect, to a point.  All those things are overblown media firestorms.  The reason Romney lost was he didn't fight, he didn't stand for anything.  He would stake out a position, then under a flurry of critisim, change his view.  His strategy was that Obama was too bad to win.  Sorry, Mitt, you don't beat something, no matter how bad, with nothing.

    Thinking?  you might try it.  Maybe try to answer my question about how you intend to fund the rapid expansion of social programs.

    As far as Romney being a conservative: No, it is true.  You just can't face the facts, even thought they figured largely in your campaign against him.  

    Examples:  

    Romneycare as the predessessor to Obamacare, both liberal.  

    Romney didn't support Bush's tax cuts,

    Romney supported gay marriage in this state in action, he's the one who immediately issued the executive order mandating marriage licenses be issued even though nothing compelled him to do so.  

    He supports global warming, and he supported funding ethanol.

    He is liberal through and through, with an occasional minor nod to a minor conservative point, like DOMA.  you just buy the media narrative that he is conservative.

    No, he's not a liberal.  He never was.  Any more than GWB and his repub majority was.

    My point is that you and others have consistently misinterpreted the political spectrum to the point where clear, common sense issues like contraception and marriage rights are suddenly marxist plots against your "freedoms".

    Yours is the attitude that turned off women with ridiculous comments about rape and abortion...the same attitude that vilified honest, hard-working hispanics to the point where they ran to the President in historic numbers.

    Not to mention that the electorate isn't nearly as center-right as you think it is.

    Both Romney and Bush pushed MAJOR liberal ideas and programs!!!!  Yet you still consider them conservative.  MAN! wake up!

    What do you have to do to be a liberal in your book?  Have Stalin tatooed on your forearm?

    Unbeleiveable.  

    YOU are the one that insist on treating women like cattle.  If their value might diminish due to pregancy, TERMINATE IT!!!!  No different than cattle on a farm.

    I have faith that women can think through tese moral issues more than you do, obvisouly. 

    Go down to the plough and stars and bask in your win.
