This columnist is giving excuses. Robmey was UNELECTABLE because hes a greedy flip flopping fraud. Obumma is too but hes a better actor. He lies better. Robmey is a B movie actor compared to Oscar winner liar Obumma. This wasn't about ethnic background, it was about a communist/socialist fraud playing class warfare very successfully. The GOP got what they deserved after spitting on Dr. Paul, adopting NONE of his brilliant platform and then attacking and humiliating Paul supporters telling us we're scum and that they didn't need us. Turned out they did. Paul would have beat the Fraud-in-Chief handily by drawing from the Democrats AND republicans, not to mention independents. But the GOP would rather lose w/ Robmey than win w/ Dr. Paul.
