From Victim To Victory

I did my own unscientific exit poll of people I know willing to share who they punched the button for and why. Overwhelmingly, the 47% victim comment did Romney in. Also his performance in job reduction in the private sector (Bain Capital etc.) did him no favors. Found that many are working harder and more hours than ever and are still in fear of losing their jobs. None, and I mean none of them are looking for a handout, just want a decent raise when they perform, and that when their tired bones are wore out there will be a little something for them. Actually Ryan scared them more than Romney, and if Romney had articulated more of what his policies would actually be, they could have given him a chance. I know polls suck, and mine is no better telling the whole story, but I like others have a lot in common with middle of the road republicans, and would like to see a change in their parties attitudes.
Don't shoot the messenger.

Working harder and making less, so they put the bastard back in office for another four years whereupon they'll be working harder for even less yet. Brilliant.

I don't think it just happened recently, it's been going on for 12 years.

Not getting back to Bush are Ya? Inflation has been going up ever since I've been working - about 40 years and there are several Prezs' that are responsible for signing those increases that Congress proposed. The Prez is important but it starts in the Congress. It's in bad need of a house cleaning.

A lot of women didn't want Romney to have a chance to appoint 2 new Supreme Court Justices. They knew with that power they'd probably overturn Roe vs Wade. My wife told me that was women's biggest concern in her office even though most of the women claim they are against abortion. They just don't feel anyone has the right to tell them what they can or cannot do with their bodies or what their daughters can or cannot do. It may sound goofy to us men but we don't get pregnant either.

Whoever recorded that speech where Romney said he didn't care about the 47% probably changed this election and changed history.

i think the fact that the GOP and it's values relating to abortion (none of the governments business) and same sex marriage (really none of the governments business) and the idiotic statements made in the name of God and religion by Repub Politicians, killed Romneys chances in addition to his 47% remark. The government has proven again and again that it cannot manage money, what makes everyone think it will do a better job with human sexuality and abortion? We need LESS government intervention in our lives, NOT MORE. Too bad that religion plays such a part in electing (or NOT electing) our leaders. Four more years of Obama is gonnnnnna suckkkkkkk......

Agree 100%, Tim!

What did Romney in was Obama's Chicago style politics - he portrayed Romney to be a 1%er, out of touch with the world, and everyone bought that. Obama is great at making the competition look bad...but where does that get US? I'll admit Romney was not my first choice, and that he certainly was his own worst enemy. But kinda kills me that so many people vote based on 'likeability'! I don't want a likeable president...I want a competent one!!!

The presidency has become too much of a popularity contest now...

Really overturning Roe v. Wade is their biggest concern.
Very sad and discusting that the right to kill innocent unborn children is the number 1 concern. Pathetic . Sick.

Why is it when the right claims that if Obama or any liberal President appoints a couple liberal Supreme Court Judges our gun rights will be severly restricted if not taken away we are crazy gun nuts and not to be taken seriously. When the left claims if a Conservative President appoints a couple Conserative Supreme Court Judges they will repeal Roe vs Wade and they are perfectly sane and should be taken quite seriously? Why is one any more credible or any more or less likely to happen than the other?

Fact of the matter, his problem is the burden laid on him by the republican party
The fact that the Hispanic vote has the power to help swing an election, He cannot please the party core without loosing that vote is crippling plain and simple. The immigration stance that he had to have to win the primary helped him loose the general election. There are various other factors as well, but I guarantee this lost him Fla at the very least.
