The Message Romney Missed

Wow! And I thought the communists and Oliver Stone had a lock on revisionist history. The Republican philosophy of lower taxes and less regulation was brought to a screeching standstill in 2008. Less than 10 years after Clinton got the government off the back of banking and bush lowered taxes, we were in the middle of the first depression of the 21st century. With the world's economy nearly destroyed by the good old boy network of bankers - none of whom have gone to jail for their fraud - you still whine about the good old days under Reagan. If you want to reasonably attack Obama, use that little item for your lance - there is no defense.

Your assignment, goshdarn, is to read "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt and "Basic Economics" by Thomas Sowell. After you have done that, get back to us.

I am not a communist. That being said, read the critique of capitalism in Das Kapital.

The "capitalism" described in Das Kapital is a straw man, not a fair description of the way true economic freedom works. Remember, Marx is the one who coined the term, "Capitalism" !

The post mortems on the presidential campaign continue to pour in, the ones on the botched Romney effort the more interesting (and more depressing for those of us who supported him). President Obama was clearly vulnerable, and Mitt Romney clearly positioned to defeat him.

So what went wrong? Let me add my analysis. Three words: Message. Messenger. Messaging.

The messenger was flawed, unwilling to take risks, unprepared for the Obama political wrecking machine, left dazed and confused Election Night.

If inept messaging could be deemed a felony, this campaign was a crime against humanity. I've never seen...
