GOP Campaign Consultants Badly Hurt Mitt Romney's Campaign
Cure Socialism ^ | November 6, 2012 | Jonathon Moseley

Posted on 11/06/2012 7:48:33 PM PST by Moseley

Mitt Romney failed to convince the voters that he would be better than Barack Obama -- because he never tried. Simply saying that Obama didn't improve the economy is not a logical argument. Voters are smart enough to ask the other side of the question: Would you, Mitt Romney, be any better? Yes, Obama has been a disappointment. But does it logically follow that Mitt Romney is necessarily a better choice?

Unfortunately, Romney’s Presidential campaign (meaning the campaign consultants who usually ruin the Republican Party) ran a campaign on the strategy of saying nothing more than

•“Him bad! Me no him!”

A year ago Mitt Romney had tons of money and knew that the economy would be the #1 issue and would decide the election, if properly played.

So it is great that only a few days before the election 673 economists endorse Mitt Romney’s economic plan.

But why wouldn’t a campaign with plenty of money put that in motion up 8 to 10 MONTHS ago?

Mitt Romney has never tackled the most crucial question of the entire election:

“Sure, Barack Obama has not fixed the economy, but should we take a chance on you the Republican and the risk that you mght make things WORSE?”

If you are a voter who is hurting, you’re not happy with your life under Obama. But can you take a chance on the economy getting even worse if Republican policies would cause a re-run of the 2008 economic crash.

Cheerleaders for the establshment Repulicans fail to understand:

If you are a voter struggling with this economy, you survived (almost) one economic crash. You cannot afford to risk another economic crash. So if there is even the slightest chance that Republican policies might cause another crash, a rational voter would choose a bad Obama over a “worse” Romney (as they might perceive it).

Republican political gurus have run away from the issue, because they always run away from every issue and have the spines of wet linguni, for the last 4 years.

Well, now that negligence and cowardice is coming home to roost.

Republican gurus allowed Democrats to get away with bald-faced lies about what caused the Democrat-inspired economic crash in 2007 and 2008. EXIT POLLS RIGHT NOW are showing that a majority of those showing up to vote blame the bad economy on George Bush. That is very bad news for Romney, because it gives a clue to WHO is turning up to vote.

I have been in those meetings with self-proclaimed campaign experts when they wring their hands and squirm in their seats and wet their pants over the prospect of EXPLAINING something decisively and forcefully to the voters, countering Democrat lies, and taking a stand on anything. They think they are brilliant and clever by saying absolutely nothing of substance in a campaign.

While Mitt Romney has dramatically over-performed early expectations of him as a perceived establishment Republican, his actual campaign apparatus has struggled under the albatross of traditional Republican mistakes.

I dont fault Romney for what is happening here..Bill O Reilly is a douche bag he is absolutely right about one very important thing..America has changed..its not the country that it once was..its all about FREEBIES instead of FREEDOM..when you have half the country collecting some kind of Govt assistance, your pretty much screwed. Its time to face the facts that America is now no different than Cuba, Venezuela, or Greece

The feckless fool Mitt Romney is to blame. Any chance we can now stop listening to “conservative pundits” like they know something? Probably not. Conservatism is a frog on a slowly warming hot plate.

I think I am more pissed that I never saw a TV ad with the 'you didn't build that' comment from Obama. They hit it in the Northeast for @ two weeks, and then never got back on it.

Obama took the '47%' tape and beat the hell out of it.

Mitt needed to do the same thing, and he didn't...with any of Obama's gaffes...

The blame game begins, and early.

He who refuses to learn from history is destined to repeat it.

However, I was sounding this warning months ago -- not just after a loss. So it's a consistent message, not the blame game.

If you know you should do something, and you don't do it, what do you expect to happen?

So what will you do?

You go back, Jack, DO IT AGAIN.... wheel turning round and round.

One thing you can fault team Romney on was making the election 100% about the economy when most people feel the economy wasn't getting much better but not any worse. Obamacare should have been front and center. They should have dissected it and pointed out how it will completely destroy our health care system.

But the Republican party does need to do more to get competitive with the demographics that are now doing us in.

We also - based on what I saw today - have a TON of people who are recent arrivals to this country who, like unions and other Democrats, are interested in what the country can do for them. They do not get a lump in their throat at the movie 1776. They likely know little of our founding. We all came from somewhere, but my German great-grandmother wanted to assimilate. I don’t see that now. This new majority gives me the creeps. It will take from this country until it breaks. Then what?

Everyone knows the horrors of Obamacare..I dont think that if Romney had brought it up more it would have made any difference..people either love it or hate it its that simple..the problem is that when you have 50 percent of Americans receiving Govt goodies, they are slaves to the Dem party..that is what Obama meant in that video that was shown on Fox News, where he said that the more Govt freebies you give people, you have a permanent Democrat Society..add 12 million plus more illegals who will get Amnesty..and you have a permanent Democrat base

Get a grip. This isn't about Romney or his campaign. His campaign was always focused on an agenda as well as criticising Obama.

ROMNEY DID HIS PART.

It appears voters FAILED to do theirs. Clearly the country is somewhere else from where conservative mythology would have you believe.

For years I've said if he were John McCain or John F Kerry, reelection would not be in the cards but Obama's "historical nature" was a grand wildcard.

I heard someone say at work if we can suffer eight years of Bush we can suffer eight of Obama. Of course that's entirely naive and deeply moronic but the people who live and breathe politics and news analysis don't have votes that count more than those who don't.

There are rumors my employer will follow Darden Restaurants (Red Lobter's owen) and cap all hours at 29 per week in response to ObamaCare starting in January. People who count on working "as needed" by the operation to survive and already struggle will find themselves drowning.

I know exactly what Rush Limbaugh will say about this failure: once again, the establishment Republicans pushed a candidate who wasn’t conservative enough.

Mitt Romney is socialism lite. He never governed as a conservative.

That’s not my interpretation.

Romney could not possibly have tried harder, or collected more money, or had better marketing experts and consultants. (Who else would you have liked to have on board to run his campaign? Name some names.) He could not possibly have generated more energy or enthusiasm—if you doubt that, look at the tens of thousands who went to his rallies, or crowded signs all over the US, or the thousands who have been standing out in the cold for three hours in conservative areas of Virginia for a chance to vote for him. We could not have done more.

And yet it wasn’t enough.

Even though almost fifty percent of the voting public were excited about a Romney-Ryan victory, even though most of the Democrats were desultory about their support of Obama, Obama has won. Though people could look around them and see the evidence that Obama is leading this country to total ruin, they allowed themselves to be led by the mainstream media and their own fundamental witlessness.

We can’t do better. There is no candidate we could have run who would have garnered more votes or looked better or sounded better. If we can’t win with all this money and support, or with the incumbent showing up for his first debate in a stupor, we can’t win ever.

So this nation is simply going to head down the road toward perdition. I don’t see that there is a solution. God has answered our prayers, “No,” and what recourse do we have beyond Him?

This is a lie that needed to be rebutted again and again.

Democrats ran the Congress when the crisis hit, they passed CRA and blew the housing bubble earlier, stopped oversight of Fannie and Freddie, and talked down the economy at the worst time.

Too many conservatives would not vote for romney (mad about the cheating and pushing of Romney in the primary), plus EVERYONE I know said they were holding their nose to vote for Romney. Nose holders were republicans. My daughter-in law and her family are all independents and could not stand romney. They did not even vote. GOP lost this, Romney too. He was tougher on his own than with Obama. McCain syndrome.

I agree. Romney wasn't my first choice, but I think he was actually turned out to be a good candidate. And unquestionably a good man.

If we do lose, I'm not blaming Romney. I'm blaming this strange new America that this country has become, with all the cultural degradation brought upon us by the Left. It is no longer the America we loved.

sadly I can’t blame this on Romney. My disgust is with the American people who fell for Obama’s pack of lies, even after 4 years of misery with him. Sure, Romney could have been more aggressive in the last 2 debates, done more character assassination vs Obama, run better commercials. But Mitt was an infinitely better candidate than McCain, Bush and Dole. He held himself high in the debates. I think he listened too much to his pollsters and “sat on a lead he didn’t have”.. BUT, when all is said and done: Mitt had as much $$$ as Barry to get his msg out. He laid out a choice: Socialism that has failed or return to free enterprise. The voters made their choice. Not just the minorities (sure it’s hard to overcome 95% Blacks voting for O) but the whites who are living off the fat of the land yet are overcome with “guilt” that others are not. Believe me. I live in Massachusetts. So I”m sick of my friends and neigbhors and blame them for this fiasco more than I blame Mitt.

Clearly the country is somewhere else from where conservative mythology would have you believe.

It ain't over yet, the fat lady hasn't sung, and beyond the media illusion, the reality is that Democrats have to cheat to win, and have for many decades. This is what happens when a minority illegitimately gains power over a bamboozled majority. If an honest vote count was tallied for the past 20 years, the entire hold of liberal power in this nation would be more to the right.

The "conservative mythology" may well be accurate -- we don't know, as "the country" only had two liberals to chose from. I feared Romney would get it in a landslide, and I know that the idea that the majority of Americans are freeloading flakes is probably way off the mark, but as the only mirror we have to hold up to ourselves is created by the media, we believe stupid voters are the majority when the fact is they're a minority that CHEATS. Obama is not responsible for being the destructive force he is -- Republicans are for playing defense so long that it's in their DNA. They play on the liberals' terms, and Romney is the most poignant illustration in our lifetime.

I’ve said what you’ve said for years. A pubbie candidate has to explain things to the electorate who are usually misinformed or outright ignorant. Merely stating that he could do better than Obama begged the questions: why and how? Every Pubbie candidate should be, like Reagan, and educator and an attacker. Reagan hammered liberalism at every opportunity. There is no room for squeamish Pubbies afraid of offending indys or minorities. Tell it like it is. Romney didn’t.

Yes, that's true. But Romney's campaign was still run and dominated by the same disastrously incompetent campaign consultants and self-proclaimed experts who have run the GOP into the ground for many many years.

Mitt Romney was better than his campaign. But his campaign was a dead weight that Romney had to drag around.

Romney turned out to be pretty good. His campaign was terrible. In other words, his campaign consisted of the same old establishment hacks who couldn't run a campaign for dog catcher and win.

Like wise, but the fact remains that Bush killed conservatism in the USA. Bush also killed the Republican party. When ever I try to convince someone to vote GOP, the first thing I hear is “Bush”. Obama is Bush’s legacy. The GOP can not defeat an anti-American Marxist in a terrible economy and the reason is Bush.

And your reply should be Obama as a community organizer was suing banks under the CRA forcing banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford them. Freddie and Fannie were run by the democrats (rahmbo ran it for a year or two). Big banks insured the forced bad mortgages via AIG. AIG repackaged them sold them over and over again. Dummycrat Frank was a big backer of Freddie and Fannie for decades. That was the big failure that was blamed on Bush.

You can also compare Bush/Enron vs. Obama/Goldman Sacs or Obama/MF Global. Enron's Jeff Skilling is in jail. Who from the Big Banks is in jail under Obama. What about MF Global and Jon Corzine, one of Obama’s bundler? They effing stole $1 billion for customer accounts!!!!

And you are telling me that all this is Bush's fault? It just tells me that the GOP and Freepers don't know how to go for the jugular.

Do you ever ask the “someone” why Obama has not signed a budget in over 3 years?

Do you point out that Obama’s budgets were so poorly thought out that not one Senator every voted for them? Not one!

Do you ask them how they fell about the $22 Trillion deficit that will be accumulated under Obama because THEY voted for him?

If they have a bigger and better house than you have, do you ask them when you can move in, because it would be fair and you are a true believer in social justice?
