    Really, nothing worse then tripping over bad hyperbole; especially when you land and splatter it all over your face. Its just not very becoming.
    Maybe you should read his about his past and compare it with that of Barrack Obama. Mitt Romney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The problem with Romney that he just couldn't shake is that no one knew where he stood on almost any issue. He didn't get the "etch a sketch" name for no reason. The man flip flopped so much that he made Kerry look like a pillar of stability.

    That's what I got out of your complaining.

    There's plenty of differences with Romney based on policy. Your notion that it's "all personal attacks" is weapons-grade bull****.

    However, the way Romney ran his campaign, if you disagreed with him on a policy point, all you had to do is wait a few days and he'd change it to something you agreed with.

    Probably.

    Of course maybe if we knew what if anything he stands for..that might help. however he spent the whole primary season trying to convince people that he wasn't a moderate, then tried to look like one when he needed to, but not too moderate...

    His campaign reminded me a,lot of Kerry's now that I think about it.

    It absolutely did. In 2004, John Kerry ran for President with the general message of "I'm not George W. Bush" and lost. Romney did the same thing in regards to Obama in 2012.

    How would you define 'moderate', and on which policies?

    Oh...I think that unlike Kerry (I have a plan thats going to solve everything. Its a great plan. No, you cant see the plan, but trust...its a great plan) we actually DID see Romneys positions stated. The question is, can anyone trust or believe them and what will they be tomorrow.

    There HAVE to be better candidates than Romney and Clinton. Frankly...I dont see Romney winning a primary. Christie, Jihndal, who knows who else.

    Im not sure if I see Hillary winning the dem ticket with the way things are going. I wouldnt be surprised at Warren being named Obamas successor. Their problem will be that she is white. They need a black or Hispanic candidate as the Veep nominee.

    First we have to slog our way through the 2014 election. WOuld it be possible to put the 2016 talk off until say...October...of 2016?
