    IMO, Romney should have pushed on about the contradictory remarks with regards or Libya. Obama takes credit for Seals killing bin Laden, but yet he dodges questions about those lost with our ambassador. Tell Obama to name one president who wouldn't have ordered the killing or capture of bin Laden.

    With that said, my only concern is the number who vote based on race, handouts, or abortion. I hate the fact that our system sees the votes of two individuals with drastically different levels of knowledge on our country's issues as the same. The election has become a stupid popularity contest to many, rather than voting on the most well qualified for the president's responsibility.

    The simple answer is he thought he could run and win. As I have said many times before Slinky is a poor little rich guy who has no concept of normal day live or needs and could care less what the little people think or feel. SO he said what he said and did what he did because he thought we were too stupid to notice.

    So, assuming you either think Mitt is going down to defeat OR you are disappointed of where he is standing on election eve, what would you say was Mitt's biggest mistake in this campaign?

    A) Mitt ran too far to the right
    B) Mitt ran too much in the center
    C) No one knew where Mitt was running - he flip-flopped a few times too many
    D) Mitt failed to tack to the center soon enough
    E) Mitt could not stay on topic: the economy
    F) Ryan was a poor choice as a running mate
    G) Mitt should have been more aggressive campaigning in other rust belt states (WI, PA, MI)
    H) Mitt was just a bad, bad candidate
    I) The Jeep ad did him in
    J) None of the above - Mitt ran a great campaign

    If Romney loses it is mostly because is an agent of the money-hungry GOP Establishment who unsuccessfully tried to package himself as "everyone's conservative."

    If he wins, it is mostly because he is an agent of the money-hungry GOP Establishment who successfully packaged himself as "everyone's conservative."
