Romney ran the best campaign he could with what he got. The Republican party should admit their mistake of having a long and brutal primary that left the nominee coming out in a disadvantage position . Unsitting an incumbent who had time to establish his ground game during his three and a half years in office is not easy . Romney did a historic job turning around his campaign with the first debate. Without Sandy and that ridiculous act of governor Christie ,he might have won the presidency ! He lost in a very close election with lots of fraud !
