The Message Romney Missed

Were you around during the gas-rationing, LONG lines at the pumps, days of the Carter administration? I was; and what you saw after Hurrican Sandy was what we lived--week after week after week. Peole were sick of it, and voted Carter out. Reagan was great; but it was the Carter economy (up to 20% interest on mortgages at one point) and his horrible foreign policy that tipped Reagan's luck.

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...
