He lost because enough independents were turned off by the anti-gay/atheist/American-Muslim birther strain of conservatism and his own gaffes didn't help. He could not reject that part of the base and win the nomination and even campaigned with Trump and Gingrich. How many independents were turned off by the religious/birther right and could not make the jump we don't know, but it only needed to be a small number. When are you all going to stop listening to the Limbaugh Bros., Sowell's and so on, who proved that they not only don't know what people want, but delude themselves into believing they are winning? The far right, not Romney, is responsible for 4 more years and they should own it.

You are an idiot. When did Romney ever mention anything about birthers? When did he ever mention anything anti-homo? He lost because he stood for nothing and let himself be demonized with no response. Much like George Bush did in his second term. When you do not respond to crazy, half assed accusations the other side pounds on constantly, then people start to believe it. You seem hung up on far left talking points and can't resist trying to demonize those who p[ay the freight in this country. Indeed, you are an idiot and wasting your time if you think anyone here is going to agree with you. Now off to the basement, you trolling fool.

He's hung up on far left talking points because he's a hard leftist

DHE, had you actually listened to Mr. Limbaugh over the past year you would have heard him saying the same thing TS did in this column. I have also never heard Rush bash gays or talk about birth certificates. The "far right" is another monster in the basement that the press uses to scare children into compliance.

Try again when you sober up. Otherwise I would think that you are a slouch who breaks into your Dad's beer and liquor supply and goes to your bedroom in the basement to drink and post,

Now that we're a plurality of a Moron Nation what we want are moooreee mooooree guvmint freebies,freee cheeese,free abortions.
And ohh, hate all those rich peoples who pays the bulk of the taxes.
BTW. this had nothing to do w/ homosexuals and their life of abominations. It's about cradle to grave baby sitting for the masses who are sold on class-warfare/envy.
Many many moons ago,people strived to be successful. Now they strive for the guvmint to take away/confiscate from the successful and give to them.It's easier than going out and earning success. Why! that's hard work
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
