Actually, Romney did pretty well when you consider that he was running against three opponents -- Obama, the MSM and the debate moderators. Additionally you have an electorate that for the most part is too lazy to educate themselves about the candidates and the issues. And, as much as I hate to admit it, Obama simply ran a better campaign than Romney. The best example being in Ohio where they literally knocked on EVERY DOOR beginning a year before election day. We shouldn't out-liberal the liberals to win elections, but we can take a lesson from them on campaign strategies.
