Why Mitt Romney Deserved To Lose The Election
Forbes ^ | 11/15/2012

Posted on 11/15/2012 6:53:41 AM PST by SeekAndFind

In an article published in 2001, Jude Wanniski, the author of The Way the World Works, noted that since 1896, only Republican presidential candidates running on “pro-growth” platforms have won. Republicans advocating “austerity” have invariably lost. With the defeat of Mitt Romney, the election of 2012 continued this pattern, with one addition. Republican presidential candidates offering clueless confusion also lose.

Democracies tend to evolve two political parties, a party of economic growth and a party of income redistribution. If a credible plan for economic growth is offered, the people will vote for it, provided that it does not involve crushing the poorest and weakest members of society. If not, they will vote for income redistribution, in an effort to assure that everyone survives so that they can enjoy the fruits of economic growth, if and when political leaders emerge who understand how to produce it.

If the American electorate decides that income redistribution is the best that is available during an election season, they will vote Democrat. The Democrats long ago nailed down the redistribution (a.k.a., “fairness”) position. This leaves the Republicans the choice between being pro-growth (while also being non-threatening), or losing. In 2012, Mitt Romney and many, many other Republican candidates collapsed into clueless confusion and lost.

Mitt Romney became the Republican nominee because Herman Cain, the only true pro-growth candidate in the primary race that was actually competent to do the job of president, self-destructed over personal issues. However, once Romney had sewed up the nomination, supply-siders started projecting their hopes onto him, and ignoring what he was actually saying and doing.

I'd like the author next to write an article entitled: "Why Barack Obama deserved to Win the Election"

I wonder what points he would bring up...

“self-destructed over personal issues.”

*sigh*. This is a tired meme. Where did all these women go when he announced he was no longer running?

This election was not about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. This election was about the nation and liberty. The nation lost.

I wonder how this ideal “pro growth” candidate would get his “pro growth” message to the electorate? Through the media? Riiiight. And what percentage of the electorate would even understand the concept of growth based economics? For this article to be accurate, the media would be neutral and informative and the electorate intelligent. Good luck with that.

The RNC needs to wake up and grow an IQ point or two.

We're not going to vote for a Mormon, or anybody else that belongs to a cult. We're also not going to vote for any more liberals. We had enough of that with Bush. This isn't rocket science.

The election was lost because single females were not pro growth. They wanted their birth control pills so a baby wouldn’t grow.

I’m as sick as anyone over the election and I firmly believe that fraud may have carried the day for the commie kenyan, but one fact is hard to dispute: Mitt Romney failed to carry his native state of Michigan, or his adopted state of Massachusetts and Paul Ryan failed to carry Wisconsin. The “native son” angle, as well as, perceived favoritism to be gained, should have counted for a significant number of votes in these states.

Sadly there is more to it than that:

The race was a race between America and the rest of the world.

The GOP has sadly, taken the side of the rest of the world.

Dems while a complete mess, have been overall, fighting for the good guys.

THAT is why democrats won, and why it is now critical to wrest control away from the “everywhere but America” wing of the GOP.

They seek destruction only.

Time to be FOR America. FOR jobs. And FOR growth.

In America.

I didn't vote for Romney because he's a liberal. But the fact that he belongs to a man-made cult that until the mid 1970s refused to allow blacks full membership; the fact that he belongs to a cult founded by a lying, thieving con-man; the fact that Mormonism is one of the most profoundly evil organizations on the earth; those facts would be enough to dissuade me from voting for him.

I didn't need to not vote for him because of his membership in that vile cult. His liberalism was enough.

But Romney was tough on China and immigration (remember the exchange with Perry over being heartless?). Not surprisingly, asian-Americans and Hispanics overwhelmingly supported Obama.

Despite the sarcasm, you might actually be right.
Obama has one thing that Romney doesn't: a very polarizing personality. The apparent abuses of government are causing people to wake up, this partially explains the dismal voter turnout (less than 50%) -- on a Romney-win many people would think "I've done something" and go back to their slumber, doing nothing to actually impact governance. (There's even the chance that socialist policies that wouldn't get past the fairly-impotent Republicans in Congress would get past for Romney.)

That is how a Romney-win could have been worse.

So you must be happy with the election results. The president we re-elected is not a Mormon. And being a radical leftist, he's not really a liberal, either.

I personally thought Mitt’s campaign was a vast, vast improvement over those run by previous corpses like Dole and McCain.

That being said, he missed the ball in several key areas.

-Presumed that the electorate would understand why Obama’s economic philosophy can not work. If you are not old enough to remember Reagan or the fall of the Berlin Wall, odds are you don’t have a clue about this.

-Never ever uttered the phrase “I’m going to get government off your backs”. This would have helped to bring the Ron Paul Libertarians on board, and been a welcome signal to a nation growing weary of bans on light bulbs and 32 ounce fountain drinks.

-Never specifically called Obama out for buying votes with goodies paid for by the rest of us.

-Never “went there” on Benghazi

Research Mormonism. And I don't mean the Mormonism that they want you to know about. I know they've got these commercials that seem family friendly, etc. They are not family friendly, and if you dig deeply enough, their machinations rival those of professor Moriarty in A Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes."

You want someone leading America who belongs to this evil cult?

What does his religion have to do with him taking the seat away from an avowed socialist and enemy of the United States of America?

Again, and for the millionth time, conservatives are tired of choosing between the lesser of two evils. It gets us nowhere as we realized with the Bushes.

Yup. An easy 32 EV, right there, whizzed down their combined legs. Hard to argue any ticket that can't even parlay "native son" status into credits for the win column "deserves" to win anydamnthing, really.

Mitt offered a decent enough economic platform towards the end. It was half a loaf. In the social policy department he was less inspiring (but so was Barack, and there was expectation that Mitt would be more amenable to popular pressure, which would be different in Washington than it was in Massachusetts).

In hindsight, Mitt needed to have gotten an earlier start in vigorous campaigning, and needed to be careful not to equate traditional indicators of support, like rallies and signs, with voters going where and when it counted. Mitt was the nice guy who finished last. I still believe he would have won a hypothetical compulsory plebiscite. But the give-a-damn factor matters and the GOP did not rouse it as well as the Democrats did.

It’s a question of stewardship of your civic prerogatives, and sincere Christians have sincere disagreements. If you did the wrong thing for the right reason, God will more easily forgive than if you did the right thing for the wrong reason.

Romney was raised in Michigan and lost that state. He was governor of Massachusetts and lost that state. He has a second home in New Hampshire and lost that state.

And, where is this severe conservative choosing to make his new home? California, of course.

Romney,
McCain
Dole
Bush I
Dewey

ALL deserved to lose. The GOP establishment likes candidates like them, who have no vision and stand for little.

Heck, Romney chose “Believe in America” as his campaign theme. Obama could have chosen that. Most of the rest of Romney’s campaign had cutting edge messages, like “I’ll create more jobs.” “The President is a good man who tried, but didn’t get it done” “There should be fish in the rivers” “Your future is ahead of you” [oh, wait, the last two were Dewey].

Reagan ran on important themes. Romney tried not to make mistakes or offend anyone by not taking risks.
Reagan stood for things. Romney wanted to be POTUS.

I take no delight in Zero winning, but Romney didn’t deserve to win with such a lousy campaign - conducted by people HE chose and supported.

Really? I guess you have never read the Old Testament and observed how many archaic rules we have decided were downright unreasonable.

And that sentence makes you sound ignorant about Christianity.
Know you not that the very early church laid only a few strictures on the new gentile believers; the story is in Acts 15 and they published this letter to the new churches:

The apostles and the elders, to the Gentile brothers and sisters in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia. Greetings!
We’ve heard that some of our number have disturbed you with unsettling words we didn’t authorize. We reached a united decision to select some delegates and send them to you along with our dear friends Barnabas and Paul. These people have devoted their lives to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, we are sending Judas and Silas. They will confirm what we have written.
The Holy Spirit has led us to the decision that no burden should be placed on you other than these essentials: refuse food offered to idols, blood, the meat from strangled animals, and sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid such things. Farewell.

That's funny, I made no mention of who I voted for.

I am a believer in God and Jesus the Son of God, too.

Then tell me: have you been showing love to fellow Christians? Your above response sure did not seem loving, but then I admit that my own perceptions are not always correct. Let us turn to God's own word then:

1 John 4:20-21
If anyone says, I love God, and hates a brother or sister, he is a liar, because the person who doesn’t love a brother or sister who can be seen can’t love God, who can’t be seen. This commandment we have from him: Those who claim to love God ought to love their brother and sister also.
I think we would all be better off if those claiming to be Christians loved God, because if we did then we would be loving our fellow Christians, too. As the above says, it is impossible to love God and not love your fellow Christians.

Anyone can cherry pick weak places to criticize. Mitt needed to put more energy into his strong places. Sure, Barack could have said “believe in America” too, but it was clear to anyone who bothered to listen for a while that the kind of America that ought to be believed in differed between the two.

Ah, the traditional tactic for a freeper who can't reason logically, viz. call someone a left wing troll. Typical.

My goal is to inform the RNC that conservatives are tired of compromising our values merely to vote for whatever big government liberal they put forth as a candidate. The fact that we stayed home in droves ought to be a wake up call to the RNC that unless they start putting forward genuine conservatives, we're not voting.

Agreed; though much of that would disappear if we really loved each other (see 1 John & James) -- the funny thing is that a lot of those disagreements disappear when you're focusing on the work of the Church.

If you did the wrong thing for the right reason, God will more easily forgive than if you did the right thing for the wrong reason.

God does weigh the hearts; there also is the example of Rahab the Harlot in the "Hall of Faith" in Hebrews, who lied to those seeking the Israelite spies.

What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about Patraeus' sex life.
