    Mitt Romney came up with a quite thorough North American energy plan, which is so important to America's future, but the MSM focused on his haircut, or some silly thing. Maybe we really do get the governments we deserve.
    Seems that we deserve the government that the Biased Lame Stream Media deems we deserve.

    I haven't doubted that in a vary long time. Getting the government we deserve. When one tends to vote only because of the R or the D next to their name or because they like this or that bumper sticker slogan, sure enough we do get the people in high office we deserve. Then there are those one issue folks, they decide how they will vote only on what is important to them regardless of where the candidates stand on other issues or not even thinking about taking in the whole package.

    I don't know if Romney would have been better than Obama, he lost and all one can go on is suppositions and theory. A resent poll shows buyers remorse in the president. But that has more to do with what is going on today in which the president is seen as having fallen down on the job. But a year from now, that could all change as other events and happenings take place. There are somethings a president can control and others he can't, somethings are of a presidents own making and others are not. I guess we will just have to muddle through with the government we deserve and have.
    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.

    It seems that every few years electorates everywhere get talked into voting for a left wing government where catastrophes quickly follow. Then they elect a more conservative government to try and clean up the mess but eventually get bored with balanced budgets, a workable infrastructure and get swept up in side issues which quickly grab their attention.

    There are many issues such as Gay marriage, for example, which can be debated one way or the other, but looking after the welfare of the entire country and all its peoples should always be the primary focus.

    I laugh as well but not so much at the people who believe and support her. That isn't funny at all.

    I don't know why but I still have sufficient confidence in the American people that the majority would not vote for Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately I said the same thing about the electorate and Obama's second coming too.

    I doubt very much that Mitt Romney is a wimp but yes, he should have been on the attack more against Barrack Obama and his record. It seems to me he relied to much on being a gentleman and overestimated the intelligence of the American electorate.

    I'd have to agree. The establishment Republicans figured out who they thought had the most appeal for the largest segment of the voters, and they pretty much demonstrated that they didn't know what's on the electorate's mind. To be fair, didn't an extensive set of primary elections with many debates interspersed, promote Romney as the most logical candidate to chose?

    Time for a re-think, and not a repeating the same mistake, it would seem.

    The run against Hillary is going to get down right brutal and nasty. Hillary has a reputation for this. So, yes, the Republicans / conservative candidate needs to really good at street fighting politics, so to speak, without giving the impression that he's flogging Hillary, as that would garner her the sympathy vote, wouldn't it?

    I truly do not believe ANYONE believes her or supports her. I DO believe there are a whole lot of myopic partisan muppets that have and will defend and promote a pile of **** with a letter next to their name. And thats the case with both major parties.

    Yes, it has to be an unrestrained negative campaign to win. That's really where Romney failed.
