The Message Romney Missed

Like Virginia, Ohio was inundated with Romney ads blaming China for all of our problems. None of Mitt's ads nor those of the GOP PACs (Rove and company) blamed Obama for all of our problems. It's no wonder the Repubs turned an easy victory into a humiliating defeat. Talk about bad messaging!

It wasn’t a humiliating defeat…but a defeat it was…but “An alternative way to make inroads into the overwhelming majority of minority votes for Democrats would be for the Republicans to articulate a coherent case for their principles and the benefits that those principles offer to ALL Americans”; all the while describing and pointing out the short and long term consequences of Progressive/Socialist principles and solutions...past, present, and future. LET THE FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, the truth may hurt a bit…but telling people what they want to hear does not always win in the end!

I think the "race card" is still partly the cause. McCain was intimidated by that bogus ploy. The last refuge of scoundrels is the race card. Romney and his McCain campaign rejects were afraid to attack Obama with the same relentless intensity they attacked him. Plus the Republican ground game stinks. They need to organize and gettheir people to the polls the same way Dems do, though unlike them, only once each.

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...
