    It didn't. Just like Romney's didn't hurt him. Out of context talking points do not decide elections, they just feed partisan flaming.

    Romney was just 429,527 votes away from winning the election. Hardly "unelectable", Romney was a weak candidate running vs an incumbent with over 50% approval rating. Obama was only the 2nd president to lose electoral votes in getting re-elected.

    If 'Other' means 'I could not care much less'...then I vote other.

    Obama or Romney..both incredibly useless reps from two incredibly useless parties.

    It does not matter who wins in 2016...they will leave office having done more harm then good...just like Obama and G.W. Bush and....


    When will Americans wake up...it's not the candidates who are to blame...it's the voters that put them in office who are destroying America, a little bit at a time.

    The voters could demand greatness fom their leaders...instead they get mired in partisan politics and become obsessed about 'us vs. them'. So they accept mediocrity just so their guy/gal can win.

    Crap in, crap out.

    Good luck explaining that. Rush Limbaugh's comments trumps all.

    What did I miss? There was plenty reason given by Romney for a Romney fan to sit the election out in 2012. Would you disagree?

    It probably did. It just didn't hurt him enough to lose.

    The Republican Party is taking the next 20 years off. This is good news for elected Republicans in solid red districts. They can keep their high paying jobs without ever taking any action. Established politicians love to be in the minority party. It's a very safe place to be.

    Actually, he was 100 or so votes from being elected in a race to 270. So how does the GOP get to 270? They get Texas, till maybe 2020, when it goes Blue. That's a biggy in the class of say CA and NY. FL, godwilling, despite Jews not being keen on minorities being picked on since they're thus, not to mention get that one nation under God ain't talking about theirs, might with some trickery and the hand of God overcome the fact that even the former stauchly-GOP-locked Anti Castro Cubans are voting Dem with all the anti-brown folks rhetoric coming from the GOP to lock up them voters in Mississippi and other low EC vote backwaters. A long shot, on a good day, wrapped in serendipity might create a shocker upset ... oh; and it's vital. Gopniks lose without it. Meanwhile them Johnny lunchbuckets hugging guns in rural OH might create an upset ... and it's vital. Then the locked in Red state, and only 80 percent of the could go other way states, and by golly, it's 2K all over again. EC win by 1.

    Bad nights can happen. Dewey should have never called Truman's train outreach "whistlestops" right when it was coming into Chicago, where folks didn't like being called a whistlestop. And others start thinking Dewey's a disconnected elite. Or maybe a candidate seeks divine counsel and gets caught smoking crack with Jimmy Swaggart and some young ladies of questionable employ. Ergo the October of Dreams in which Gopniks get skinned knees praying for an October Surprise as Fox scrambles to create one through repetition bordering on autistic. Without miracles in a couple big states and an even more miraculous skew on tossups, they do not get to 270 or anywhere near. Meanwhile if Dems get either of two they stand to win (OH, FL) they win. No need to stay up waiting for polls to close in HI, nor CA, AZ ...

    Victory speech time.

    I tend to agree that Romney was a weak candidate. But out of the field that vied for the nomination, he perhaps was the best of the weakest bunch we have seen run for the nomination since 1996. Obama was a vulnerable incumbent president and could have been beat with the right candidate. But choosing the right candidate, that is the rub isn't it. The right candidate probably was in the field that was actively seeking the nomination. Which of the other candidate could have done better than Romney, looking at each one individually, probably none.
    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.
