I think Romney was an excellent candidate - I thought he would be Reagan. I am tired of all this nonsense about him being too moderate or "not enough of a difference from Obama" which you hear from the far right. If you can't win with a lilywhite sucessful businessman with nary a skeleton in his closet that what can you do? The rest of the bench running was something out of a Star Wars bar scene.

And there is talk about his organization and the get-out-to-vote effort. But I don't think Republicans are the ones that respond to that. If you have to bus people to the polls then what kind of win is that? We know that an Obama organization on the ground did do that as best they could but they still got almost 8 million less votes this year. Romney got about a million less than McCain. This was supposed to be the year where all conservatives came out in droves to take down this failure of man in Obama - so where were they four years later? Did they all die? Anyone who sat home because they thought Romney wasn't perfect for them is an unpatriotic idiot. I heard a bunch of that last time around in '08. You can't sit out life (see "chair").

This election was not about a majority of people wanting wanting bigger government and increased taxes as many Democrats are now claiming. This wasn't a "message" election. This was an election about micro-managing liberal issues. targeting disaffected voters and managing a large electioneering machine - all with the mainstream media's complicity. And because of that the nation is screwed. In Obama's first comments from the White House on Friday he was still slinging campaign slogans.
Because that is all he knows how to do.
