One Big Failure

I suspect if Romney had chosen Rubio as his running mate, he'd have won. I'm also suspicious of voter fraud, and cybermanipulation of the election itself. All it would have taken was a couple of percentage points to skew it to Obama; which is exactly how much he won by.

A couple of percentage points is a whole lot of votes when you're talking about a national election.

Something like 2,700,000 votes separated Obama and Romney. In order the throw the election to Obama, at least half that number would have to be fraudulent. Don't you think cheating on that scale would be pretty obvious?

The pundit world will now eviscerate Mitt Romney, a man who, had he garnered just a few hundred thousand more votes in a few key districts, would have been hailed as political genius. Instead, his every fault will be examined, his mistakes magnified and his defeat decreed to be, in retrospect, inevitable.

Romney was not my first choice. I had been hoping for Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. But in the course of the long campaign, I had come to admire Romney immensely....
