The Message Romney Missed

I just wish we could quit pining away for a return of Reagan and weeping huge tears about George W.'s legacy and concentrate on finding a candidate with smarts, charisma, and balls to run in 2016. The time is now to begin prepping for the next election, not re-hashing the just-lost election over and over.

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...
