The GOP should have tried a candidate that would have fought back and taken the fight to Obama. The President is a divisive fraud and failure and somebody (like, the GOP nominee) should have challenged aggressively. People were thrilled last year when Donald Trump finally stuck back at Obama. There was a raging desire to see someone - anyone - take Obama on and throw his failures in his pompous face. The media was going to attack Romney no matter what he did, so he should have been the "evil and mean-spirited" opponent Obama and his media suck-ups claimed.
