    then 1929 happened. 3 years in 1932 later hoover lost in a landslide to democrat Franklin Deleno Roosevelt.

    Read my lips--no new taxes--both campaigning and policy--policy that cost Bush-41 his 2nd election.
    The 47% remark was campaigning and policy--clearly defining the position of Paul Ryan's meme with makers and takers.
    Romney's were prepared remarks and he went on and on about the 47%--not an accidental remark--and they cost him the election.

    Clinton's remark was clearly in frustration with unprofessional badgering by the GOP House--something that is far from over--
    certainly taken out of context--definitely has nothing to do with her campaigning but everything to do with the GOP's campaign to destroy her .

    Mitt Romney can never and will never win a Federal election after making that 47% remark. You cannot have a video out there where you say, pretty openly, "F*ck 47% of America", then think you can win a national election.

    I actually wanted Romney to win only to hear the black and gay wings of media leftists go bezerk on TV, as a politico it would have been a great show to see them all go nuts if Obama lost. That said, the instant that video came out Mitt Romney's Federal election future died a very hard death.

    Yes that is correct, no different than Obama today, once popular and today a has-been. But Mitt against Benghazi no nothing, do nothing, all about a video Hillery, makes the 3 AM phone call a non starter.

    maybe the conservative agenda was considered too extreme to vote for.

    And I could add Hillery will never win an election after the Benghazi, I know nothing, do nothing, it's all about a video Hillery. Such I call them both losers. Need fresh meat to chew on.

    And that could be, but after seeing the leftist extreme run by Obama, the people in my opinion are ready for a correction. Same as in the stock market after a big run up. The pendulum has a way of swinging back, but it never seems to stop at the center of gravity, it keeps swinging. Sometimes more to the right and then more to the left.

    No but you don't obviously understand how it works.

    Hillary Clinton is of the white left. The entirety of the left doesn't care about Benghazi, like it or not. "Oh dear, a low level leftist diplomat got killed in Libya, Oh Noes!". The Left does not care. It isn't a scandal to them. It isn't going to hurt her at all among her voters.


    However, this was not true with Romney's 47% remark. It ruined him with Independents and on the fence centrists who ended up not going to the polls over it. It killed him in key white blue collar states. He was a complete moron for allowing himself to be seen for, sadly, what he probably really is. An out of touch country club GOPer that sickened centrists on the fence. He ruined his centrist flank.

    Jeb Bush is their best shot. Romney will never gain traction again unless he can somehow delete every instance of that video on the internet, Romney will never be elected to anything.



    It's actually really telling of a political novice simply by whether they actually think Romney could ever compete again. That video is like a nuclear weapon x10000.
