    Anyway, your attempt to deflect to Kerry to dispute a point I didn't make kind of fell flat on it's face, didn't it?
    No, it hasn't.

    Romney has enjoyed a Hell of a lot better treatment from the media than John Kerry did. The Swiftboat Veterans For Truth were able to go on CBS - not Fox, mind, CBS - and suggest that Kerry gave American military secrets to the Vietcong. The absolutely disgraceful treatment of John Kerry was the beginning of my starting to question my affiliation with the Republican Party.

    The fault lies in the fact that you picked a lousy candidate, he was the best of a bad bunch... and the GOP primary was a BAD bunch (except Huntsman).

    At the end of the day, whether you like it or not, a candidate has to have some likeablity, some charisma and be able to connect with voters, Mitt Romney doesn't have these things.
    LOL!!!

    Sorry, but coming up with an imaginary disorder won't succeed in disputing my opinion.

    Your opinion?

    I'm sorry I think you mean your excuse...

    It's already lined up.

    If Romney loses, the GOP doesn't have to take responsibility for nominating a lousy candidate... why take personal responsibility n when you can just blame the media!

    Now I think Romney can still win this thing... but you won't find me making excuses on election night like some will that he "bought the election".

    But I'll probably find you blaming the media and bitching about how they weren't fair towards Romney if he loses.

    But time will tell.

    I don't present excuses and I base my opinions on the facts I see. Such as the fact that Obama's whole campaign has been based on deflecting from his record toward all the inconsequential or false issues he can concoct about Romney and such as the media's tendency to splash these bogus issues that Obama comes up with all over the news while hardly mentioning any attempt by Romney to address Obama's record or the issues that are really of interest to the People.

    Anyway, before you start making predictions about what I'll do in the future, you should get to know me without letting your bias get in the way.

    The reason Romney is struggling is because the Democrats, with the help of the media, have been very effective with their campaign of distraction.

    The OP asked for reasons. I gave one.

    Now, it's very easy for you to dismiss my reason as an excuse, but without providing your own facts to dispute me, your dismissal is impotent.

    Virtually every bump in the road the Romney campaign has had has been at its own making. The Obama team has been able to just sit back and watch Romney self destruct.

    You were complaining the real issues aren't brought up. So I was bringing them up. But it is a trick question, Romney has never clarified how he's going to pay for anything with all these tax cuts and increases in government spending.

    Re: Voters say they’re worse off after four years of Obama, so why is Romney struggli

    As long as the republican party clings to a platform that's heavily cloaked in religion, they're going to struggle and struggle and struggle to find a candidate that people who truly make the difference in elections will get behind.

    The undeclared, the independents, those who are unaffiliated with either party, the swing voters....those are the people that decide elections.
    As long as the Reps are bible thumping church AND state parishioners, they're going to have difficulty gaining any popularity outside their own base.

    We're in need of a fiscally conservative - socially liberal candidate who can grasp the idea that religion is a private matter, and not a tool for governing the country.
