FAIL, Derek. Piling on Romney is ridiculous. He was the best possible man for the job, he's everything Obama is NOT, he gave more details on his plan than anyone else ever has. You don't get it: The man is squeaky clean, yet they managed to make him a demon. He gave details, and all they had to say was "it's not enough detail". He gave his tax returns, and all they had to say was "it wasn't enough years". He was out there every day working hard and delivering conservative alternatives to what we have now. But instead they went for their idol. All it took was smooth lies and community organizers to drag people to the polls who otherwise wouldn't bother to vote and really had not idea what they were voting on. IT'S THE ELECTORATE, STUPID.

I’m not much of a whiner, nor am I someone who makes predictions. I’d hoped for a Romney victory, though more for an Obama defeat. But that, when you think about it, was the problem. While there’s no doubt Romney would’ve been a much better President than the current occupant of that office, when people are presented with a choice between the vague they know and a vague they don’t know, they will pick what they know.

Romney offered a vision of American that was different, but didn’t spend a lot of time explaining how it would get to...
