the comments from the devout "conservatives" that were convinced that Romney was not a good alternative to Obama show why America lost. Romney was too nice and too focused on promoting positive thinking to balance out the constant and varied barrage of negative ads and articles. Voters were peeled off the Romney side by nitpicky stuff and fabrications. Some Christians were convinced to be anti-Mormon. Some libertarians were convinced that Romney was an insider (????). Ron Paul or nobody. Who is perfect? Who has not made mistakes? Who has not changed their minds on key issues? Romney was not able to do what Reagan did and promote his positive message while pointing out the problems with the other guy. Enjoy the mess you made.
