Sir I concur with the gist of your post. Romney was a milktoast candidate in a country that thrives on drama, theatrics, and hyperbole. In order to beat Obama Mr. Romney had to play the same game, speak loudly, outrageously, even insultingly. By affording Obama, the man, the respect due to the office Romney came across as the underling and weak. If any president is underserving of that respect it is this current tyrant. Like it or not the "Hollywood Nation" stetches from coast to coast and the average American is an entertainment addict. Without passion the message was unheard.
