Re: "There's a Sense That We Let Mitt Romney Down" Mr. Benson, with all due respect, this is utter nonsense. The Republican Party establishment let its members and traditional conservatives and libertarians besides, by forcing Romney on us as the candidate - even when it was patently obvious a long time ago that he lacked the fire and grit to beat Obama, the dirty street thug from Chicago. Mr. Romney was/is a fine man and a proven business leader, but he was the wrong man at the wrong time in the wrong place. Romney himself may or may not have let us and the nation down by not stepping aside in favor of someone better-suited to beating Obama. Only he knows the answer to that question.
