The Message Romney Missed

Under Reagan, everybody got richer. One of grandmothers was basically a good-hearted but ignorant and not-so-bright loser who believed that the country was saved by FDR and the labor unions. And one of her favorite bitter comments every time she had a financial problem, was that "the rich get rich and the poor get poorer". This, from a woman who spent her entire adult life smoking and drinking up every spare cent.. And she could not see that she caused her own problems. I have learned to despise that pathetic, whiny statement. The reason there was an AIDS "crisis", which actually affected only a small and exclusive portion of our population, is not because of Reagan but because these same people did things to catch AIDS.

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...
