I agree with Ann; Romney was not the problem. Let's face it--more than half the country, especially the non-white demographic, is just too dumb, or biased or unconcerned or dependent to ever approve Romney's message. If Obama had white skin, he'da lost. He would not have even beaten Hillary in the dem primary. Many evil or incompetent or extremist ideologues have been popular in history. History doesn't repeat itself--people just keep making the same mistakes. One mistake I hate about republicans is they keep contrasting big and small govt. USA needs big govt, especially as world leader. Talk about govt problems, not that it is BIG.
