I am going to be completely honest to everybody. Fact - MOST, thats right, most voting americans are war weary. People are disillusioned with our long wars and the apparent lack of clarity that surrounds them. This is even true amongst many of our active duty solidiers. Had Romney kept everything else in the platform the same and just changed his stance on the middle east - He would have won hands down. The one issue that will make many democrats jump ship and switch for an election is the subject of War. Had Romney criticized Obama's unwise and unconstitutional moves in the middle east people would have percieved him to not only be good with the economy but also a man of peace. Romney would have won, hands down.

He didn't claim to be god-like or omnipotent and he didn't trash his opponent because he knew he would have to be able to live with himself when it was over. Would he have been a successful President? Yes, I think so, but now we'll never know because the people decided they just had to have four more years of "Dear Leader" whose claim to fame is his incompetence, empty promises, lack of executive ability, inability to lead and need to be adored for his oratory.

Memorandum to the GOP: When running an election campaign it is often valuable to select a nominee who represents the rank and file of the Party. This is how other Parties do it. Perhaps you might get on board.

Who?

Well let’s start with who not to select.

There was George H.W. Bush, who, while a nice, honorable public servant, won primarily because of the record Reagan established. He lost because the rest of us thought that when he mouthed the words “Read my lips, go to Texas,” he meant “Read my lips, no new taxes.”  

There was Bob Dole,...
