Blaming those who stayed home or voted third party is all well and good, because they should've showed up and voted Romney to get Obama the hell out of office. But let's face facts - Romney failed miserably. The blame should really be on Romney and all of his clueless "moderate" advisers, not voters, just as when McCain and Dole ran similar campaigns. "Moderates" don't inspire anyone on either side of the aisle, because they're gutless and wishy washy by nature. You've got to sew up your base solidly, and Mitt never bothered to even try to do that. That's why he lost.
