    Mitt Romney got 57% in Texas that's 2% just shy of the 59% Bush got in 2000. If a north easterner who was weak on social issues can get that close to a popular governor that is a strong social conservative its going to be a very long time before Texas becomes competitive let alone "goes blue".
    It also suggests that Republicans will vote for anyone with an -R behind their name. Which is why most Republicans should have been insulted that Mitt Romney won the nomination to begin with.

    No. What cost him the election is that more of his base believed that Obama should lose than that Romney should win.

    Why is that, Romney was the best choice out of the bunch.

    I don't think it hurt him that badly, but it did play into the narrative that the Obama campaign was trying to make. What Romney got wrong in that speech was the percentage. 47% is too high. Had he said 30% he would have been much more accurate and probably even a bit low.

    Why? Romney was actually a very wise candidate in retrospect.

    and in the end, the independents made the choice for the nation
    as always happens unless there is some candidate who pulls across party lines. anyone remember the last time that happened?

    Except the Democrats nominated someone who is considered a Democrat.

    No Romney was not the best choice of the bunch. He was appointed by establishment Republicans and Fox News.

    He may be very smart but he wasn't socially smart. He didn't have that panache to come off as honest when he spoke. I heard several people say that he had a slimey quality to his voice, and while I didn't agree with that there was something lacking about him or he'd have won.
