The Message Romney Missed

Repairing moral decay is NOT the responsibility of the government. Enabling a society in which moral people flourish IS the responsibility of the government. So let's have less talk about gay marriage, abortion, income inequality, etc., and more talk about unshackling the economy (simple/fair taxes, facilitating job growth, stepping out of the way for energy development, immigration policy with some link to reality and principle) and providing for the national defense (no terrorists in the US; no futile nation-building outside the US).

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...
