Romney also won North Carolina by 92,000 votes, 15 EV. Even if Romney kept North Carolina and added the other three, his electoral vote total would stand at 266, still 4 shy of winning. Obama won Florida by 0.88%, Ohio by 2.98% and Virginia by 3.87% of the vote. Romney won North Carolina by 2.04%.

    Other not so close races were which Romney won Nebraska 2nd congressional, Georgia, Arizona and Missouri:

    Colorado, 5.37%
    Pennsylvania, 5.39%
    New Hampshire, 5.58%
    Iowa, 5.81%
    Nevada, 6.68%
    Wisconsin, 6.94%
    Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District, 7.16%
    Minnesota, 7.69%
    Georgia, 7.82%
    Maine's 2nd Congressional District, 8.56%
    Arizona, 9.06%
    Missouri, 9.38%
    Michigan, 9.50%

    A Hillary vs. Romney matchup would probably mean that I end up voting for a third party candidate for the 6th time out of the last 7 presidential elections. Although Hillary would get more thought for my vote than Romney which I do not trust. Any candidate who changes his lifetime held political beliefs just to run for president can’t be trusted. He is also the father of Romneycare which begat Obamacare.

    Mornin' Pero. Which after Romneycare.....then was first Grandmothered by Hillarycare before it became BO's Special Package.

    Romney's campaign was an unmitigated disaster. His top people actually believed the "skewed polls" nonsense and ran almost ZERO ground game in the days leading up to the election because they were convinced it was in the bag.

    Well, that's the line the media and liberals peddled, but that's not what Romney said.

    It most certainly was what he said.

    Romney's campaign wasn't a disaster. He came out of the convention with a lead and then Hurricane Sandy happened and Obama got all the media airtime and love and the Christie seal of approval and Romney lost momentum. Then, in the debates, the media did everything it could to protect Obama's record and even lied, in the case of Candy Crowley, about what the President said in relation to Benghazi. The 47% nonsense didn't damage Romney nearly as much as the Hurricane Sandy photo-ops did. Romney stayed away from the damage sites, rightly so, but a more crass and opportunistic politician (read liberal) would have dove right in and gotten his/her minutes with Christie.

    Maybe so, but speaking about actual political careers, Hillary Clinton's is horrific. She began her career being FIRED from the Watergate investigation for LYING. She had a nonexistant life in the Senate, and then, well, haha we all know how hilarious her Sec. of State career was. I mean, come on. That was just brutal.

    If you take Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton, even though he's a Bush....his career is no where near as disasterous as Hildawg's.

    One can question if Crowley was doing her job at the debate, but she didn't lie about what Obama said. That's a silly semantic cop-out.

    Go on, I'll wait. Site the reference where it shows Romney said or even words to the effect that "all who are not net taxpayers are completely dependent on the government".
