Of course we blame Romney.
He was never a conservative in the first place. Oh, I know I have heard his rhetoric and he sounded just like Ronald Reagan. Well, if you did not notice, Obama played that same trick and it worked.
There was an obvious choice. Everyone assumed that this is a center right country. Everyone assumed it was Christian. It looks like we are a center left country and Christians have dropped from about 95% of the country to about 50%. The Church used to be able to inform and guide their laity. Their laity has left. Despite calls from the pulpit to support religious freedom their laity elected to end it.
Welcome to the fundamental change - thanks Ann - thanks Mitt
