It was almost laughable on Election Night when the analysts began explaining why Mitt Romney lost.
It was because of his extreme position on border security. It was because Republicans picked candidates that were too extreme. It was because Republicans denied manmade, catastrophic climate change was real.
And this was on what many Americans believe to be the fair and balanced network, Fox. Some even believe it to be a conservative alternative to the rest of the statist media jackals.
I thought the cacophony would die down by now, but it hasnt.
Mitt Romney doesnt have an extremist bone in his body. He is the personification of liberal Republicanism. Hes from what we used to call the Rockefeller wing of the party. Hes a country clubber. Hes 100 percent establishment and thats who anointed him as the nominee.
Heres the reality: Republicans lost in 2008 and 2012 because they nominated liberal candidates at the top of the ticket. John McCain and Mitt Romney are not moderates. They are liberals. And neither one of them attacked their opponent where it would really hurt character, values, experience, commitment to the Constitution, unseemly and unpresidential associations, secrecy about his past and, yes, eligibility.
Let me tell you something: Todd Akin did not lose the 2012 election for Republicans. The Republican establishment lost it by squandering the money well-meaning conservative donors handed them in record amounts. Id like to point out that Akin ran closer to his opponent, without Karl Roves war chest, than some of the Senate candidates he backed with massive amounts of money.
Take a look at how poorly Connie Mack did in Florida. It wasnt even a race. Connie Mack had money. Connie Mack had name recognition second only to Abner Doubleday.

From the article:
“Heres the reality: Republicans lost in 2008 and 2012 because they nominated liberal candidates at the top of the ticket. John McCain and Mitt Romney are not moderates. They are liberals. And neither one of them attacked their opponent where it would really hurt character, values, experience, commitment to the Constitution, unseemly and unpresidential associations, secrecy about his past and, yes, eligibility.”
That’s a wrap.
I was one of the few that promptly stood up for Akin when he flubbed, but that doesn’t mean he nor Mourdock should represent the thrust of Conservatism necessary to right the Country.
I humbly believe we need to abandon the dusty, archaic wrapper around Conservatism and replace it with something that will not help the Left, but hurt it — in an Obama’s “revengeful” kind of way.
It’s was more sinister that this .
It was Chicago voter theft machine gone national !
Early voter face the Dems controlled voter precincts in S Fl , Ohio WI and Pa and N Va unlimited time to
Stuff the machine and no GOP
The GOP is stupid to let this go. With out an army of lawyer manned at each site!
S Fl counties kept early voter open days after it was supposed to stop !
Where was Gov Scott or the GOP ??
He lost because he’s an Establishment RINO with no fixed principles, an Etch A Sketch.
FOXNews has morphed into MSM-lite for all practical purposes, IMHO. Just another one of the fly by night boys.
