    Romney was a weak candidate? How so?

    He was incredibly more qualified than Barrack Obama and everyone with any intelligence should have known that. When the MSM reported after months of research that Romney may have been a bully one time in high school or that they had their dog on top of their vehicle during a family holiday, the left went wild. This is how the low information voters decide elections, not with issues but with long dead anecdotes.

    It would have been a far better thing had the MSM researched Obama's past the way they did Romney's but the LIVs called this 'racism'.

    No, first, you mistakenly think running the us is like a business. That's your first mistake. It's not.

    Second, Romney was too close to Obama. He was almost a clone, with even less conviction. He clearly had know way to connect with working people, outside of partisans. Obama was ripe to be beaten, but the best you could come up with was the one candidate most like him. And what difference there was, that your side embraced, was more detriment than help. He was disconnected from not partisan working people.

    And please, take some personal responsibility. Quit trying to blame others. Whining about the media is simply sour grapes.

    If you know anything about how legal matters work, then you would know that they already have the evidence in hand. Never ask a question you don't already know the answer to.

    However, they have to have it substantiated, and Lerner can substantiate everything. But, she won't. No way Obama lets her.

    He was far more qualified than Obama, on that we agree. He was also head and shoulders above the other Republican wannabees. He should have won.

    But blaming the "MSM" on Romney's loss sounds to me a lot like the losing team blaming the referees when the fact of the matter is that the other guys played a better game.

    Now, that's all water under the bridge now. We have the POTUS that the people elected, like it or not. The same can be said of the Congress with its single digits approval rating. The question to be asked now is, how can the Republican party run a better race next time around?

    Actually no, that's not how it works. If they had evidence the claims made in this thread, they'd pull it out and use it at this point. They have suspicion. That's not evidence.

    Oh, lord. No, they have the goods. But Lerner holds the key to blowing it wide open.

    But to NRO, I've shown their inaccuracies to you many times before. Bias is a given. But when an article uses this type of language: liberal progressives have closed ranks, and feckless republican leadership doesn't have the fortitude to institute a joint select committee. Well, that's a clue it can't be trusted. This is argument studies 101.
    On the facts that NRO lays out concerning this story, not before, not in other editorials, not anything else but THIS story, and the 8 things I posted from it...Prove it wrong....I don't think you can, so I really don't care what you find humorous or not.

    I asked a specific question, and you failed to answer it...As usual.

    I think you're dreaming. But until we actually see something concrete, it's merely speculation. You do realize you guys have been disappointed a lot when it comes to reaching Obama on these things. You're always thinking there is more there than has ever panned out.

    No, when you use that language, it's an editorial and not a news story. It's steep with opinion and verifiable fact.

    The only failure is you don't like the answer. I tell you what, if you really want to break this down. Pick your single strongest piece of evidence from that "article" and present it. I'll answer it specifically and in detail.
