The article goes on to list a number of factors for Romneys loss. Like …
” It was the worst of times and the worst of times.”
I really liked this one from NewsMax.
1. Paul Ryan. Romneys choice of Ryan was practically inexplicable. A good conservative, Ryan was unqualified for the job of vice president, and therefore the job of president. A sitting member of Congress, he held no management position on the Hill.
2. The Ryan Plan. Romney had backed Ryans prepare for Medicare even before he tapped him as a running mate. By selecting Ryan, he was nailing the repellent strategy to the masthead of his project.
3. The Myth of a “Base Election.” This election was similar to every other one in contemporary times– about winning middle, swing voters.
4. No Plan. Along the lines of triangulating, Romney required to uphold a number of easy concepts that described what he would do if elected president … Romneys team used the least specifics of any governmental project ever.
5. Crushing Optimism. When Romney did offer a plan, it was about “hard realities,” such as dealing with the deficit, cutting the financial obligation, cutting the spending plan (killing Big Bird), and cutting Medicare.
6. Poor Campaign Staff. Thinking about that Romneys presidential mission was the best moneyed Republican race in history, his campaign staff was certainly not the best money could buy.
7. No “Gingrich” Ads Against Obama. … I was stunned how couple of ads the campaign was airing over the summertime and how lots of Obamas project was.
8. Dissing Hispanics. As the elections of 2000, 2004, 2008, and now 2012 have actually demonstrated, demographics are defeating ideology in national elections.
“Its difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel when the tunnel is collapsing”.
Heres my favorite quote (from yours really, in fact).
Rush had a really good one. “Its difficult to beat Santa Clause”. In the end, Romney offered no easy road to the voters – rather, he provided effort and sacrifice to get things back to “regular”. Not precisely what the “bread and circuses” crowd was trying to find.
Pretty great, eh?
Considering that Romneys presidential quest was the best funded Republican race in history, his project personnel was definitely not the best cash might buy.
When Romney did offer a strategy, it was about “hard truths,” such as dealing with the deficit, cutting the financial obligation, cutting the spending plan (killing Big Bird), and cutting Medicare.
The short article goes on to note a number of factors for Romneys loss. Romney had backed Ryans strategy for Medicare even prior to he tapped him as a running mate. Along the lines of triangulating, Romney required to embrace a number of basic ideas that described what he would do if elected president … Romneys group offered the least specifics of any presidential campaign ever.
