The Message Romney Missed

I couldn't disagree more with Bozell--and ALL the other people bllaming Romney!! The crux of the election comes down to this: People were not uncomfortable in this horrible economy BECAUSE OF THE GOVERNMENT SAFETY NET! Many voters did not FEEL the looming disaster--their wallets were filled with all the necessaties of life. And WHY change that--they are HAPPY in their carefree life; why work har(er) when others will take care of you? I just heard that a large percentage of people earning $30,000 or less voted for Obama. Republicans CANNOT fight that; those who pay none-to-few taxes are quite WILLING to raise taxes on the "rich." Face it--the givaways bought this election; and that is why all the polls were wrong.

I don't blame Romney. He did the best he could.

Romney has NOTHING to be ashamed of! He was a great candidate and would have been a GREAT President not like the one we are stuck with now for another 4 years! What havoc is still to come from that IMBECILE! Romney is a good, clean, upstanding man, he is smart, works hard, and his whole life is a testament to the kind of MAN that he is! Not many men can hold a candle to that! None in the White House, that is!!!

Great candidates win. He would have been a better President than our beloved leader and that was enough for me to vote for him.

ojos,

Romney may be clean and he may be smart, but he's not trustworthy. Trustworthy people don't constantly change their positions to please whatever audience they happen to be facing.

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...
