Enough of Coulter's love notes about Romney.
I don't believe Romney was the problem, but he was part of it. To win, the GOP must present a conservative vision with specific solutions and teach that conservatism as right for all in society. Romney did not present specific solutions, did not teach and did not connect with the common person. Romney assumed he would win in a year the GOP could win -- unlike 2008, when McCain faced a financial crisis, suffered from a Bush and war weariness in the country, was at a 7 to 1 money disadvantage and was running when the Bush bank bailout muddied the waters in the differences between the parties.
Socialism and appeasement don't work. But you would not know that from the Romney campaign.
