The Message Romney Missed

Mitt Romney ran the best campaign he was capable of running; the kind of campaign he could be expected to run. He could not offer a clear contrast with Obama because he was unable to articulate fundamental differences between them. Differences in detail are not fundamental differences. Big government cannot be defeated by not quite so big government.

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...
