The High Road Led Straight to Defeat for Romney

It's one thing for the liberal media to fawn over Obama and to gloss over his many deficiencies. But when it collectively decided to totally ignore his culpability regarding the events surrounding Benghazi, I knew the jig was up. Fox News and conservative talk radio simply isn't enough to overcome this reality. Sure, the MSM is in decline, but it's a slow decline. A very large number of Americans -- mostly geezers -- still get all their news from a roof-top antenna hooked to their 1979 Zenith. These are the true "swing voters."

If Election Day is about picking winners, the morning after is for post-mortems. That's when we slice open the losing campaigns, set aside the hundreds of millions of dollars that gush out, and pick apart the cause of death.

Why did the Romney campaign fail? Maybe the country is now GOP-proof. That is, maybe a Constitution-guided, free-market, limited-government candidate no longer can "appeal" to the majority of the electorate. It could be that the death knell rang early this year once 67.3 million of us, or one in five Americans, had come to depend on federal assistance, formerly known as "the dole."
