    That was not the only qualification he listed.

    I don't think he ever stood a chance. Too boring.

    Things that killed his chances were the many different positions he took on different issues.

    I found those quite amusing, some laughable too.

    Yeah, he thought the way to win was to lie about President Obama... About welfare, $716 billion stolen from Medicare, more. He said President Obama was dividing America. He had to have his wife, Ann, along for interviews in MSM to fix his image. He said he wasn't a politician and his campaigned proved it. Romney was the candidate Obama wanted to face, Jon Huntsman was the one he feared and Huntsman could have beaten him IMO.

    His issues were typical republican. Not really different than any before him recently.

    He was a lurch. Uninspiring droning was his delivery.

    You're making a mountain of a molehill, as a result of and to serve political bias.
    Remember Obamas comment about clinging to the bible and guns?

    Why didn't that hurt him?

    The 47% remark was a gaffe combined with extreme rhetoric. The 47% was really meant to be the support that anyone with a D would get in a general election contest. Then he described those people as those who support a system where a large part pay no federal income taxes. He was just basically saying that his message was for the undecided voters and did it in the most inarticulate way possible
    It didn't help that Candy Crowley came to Obama's rescue, with false information to boot.

    Romney lost because he ran on the Republican ticket which is unelectable until the GOP finds a way to purge bigots from their leadership and reverse course on the Southern Strategy which played out decades ago. The GOP simply cannot reach 270 EC votes. They'll be lucky to get 170 in 2016.

    No, President Obama was always ahead in the polls. Looking at all the polls RCP had for 2012, President Obama was always ahead of Romney from 1 Jan 2012 on by an average of 2-5 points until September 3-5 which they were tied, then Obama pulled ahead again by roughly 4 points until October 6th until November 1st which they took turns as to whom was leading in the polls. but beginning on 1 November President Obama once again regained the lead which he expanded each day until election day.

    The video was really a non-issue as far as polls go.

    I need to add, as far as the electoral college goes. Even when tied in the popular vote among the polls, Romeny always trailed by around 60 EV's even when the 7 swing states were in doubt.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
