It is true, in the span of time, that comets are in the sky for a short time, and they leave quickly only to be seen again in distant futures. America may be such a comet that may have graced the sky for a short time only to leave us with its memory. Fortunately, America may have been saved by the persistence of a man driven by the fear of our future if America were to leave us.
In this campaign contest, it was the coalition that Romney built and the money raised in the 2008 election cycle that put together a fortunate situation in this race for the presidency. Even though Romney’s second place run with 22.1% of the 2008 primary vote, it was a beginning to what became the formation of a winning machine. It is the machine we need against Zer0. In my opinion, money does not always measure who is the best man-or woman. It is what they do with the money that does.
We could have had a superman with Gingrich or a superwoman with Sarah Palin if they had started much earlier, getting supporters ready to fund their campaigns and an organization put together to hit the ground running when the comet was overhead and the train left the station. Gingrich’s campaign was all hope and dreams without the early groundwork to be effective. The same with the other candidates who seemed to pop up like weeds ready for the pickings. They did one fortunate thing: They battle tested the Romney machine—a very important effect that will make all the difference later.
Romney has avoided the social issues because he knows they are distractions to divert his energies. The Left uses social issue diversions to sap the energy of their opposition. Romney has been able to get stronger by focusing his attention on coalition building which will make all the difference when the necessary support for a strong campaign is needed against the DemonRATs.
Romney’s persistence has proved that he can raise the necessary money to win, which will also make a difference. We are fortunate to have Romney with the level of development that is his organization has become. It will rock the DemonRATs off their feet. It has all come because of simple persistence which has created sufficient time to build the necessary machine to take out the DemonRATs.
I hope he does, but I don’t see it happening. He is not my first or second choice, that’s for sure.
Excuses, excuses, excuses. Whatever the reason, the primaries came out they way they did. Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Huntsman, Bachmann, Paul, Cain, etc. all had the same shot. Romney won, Romney is the candidate. End of story. Get real, our country is at stake!!!
FR was populated with Adults when I signed on....it's allowing children like you to join now to do name calling, un-informed posting, etc.
Deal with it.
Best bet here is for Romney to drop out now before he hurts the country any more.
He may have the pundits and just enough delegates but that party is nothing without its voters, and they have some other concerns way beyond Romney's interest in money.
Your boy has yet to show anybody any reason to vote for him, or most particularly, to do the hard work on the ground to get out the vote.
There is no "THERE" there.
No, that's not the way it happened ~ 7 is far larger than 3 ~ every single time.
The Mitbots had several stalking horses wandering about distracting the voters and dividing the vote.
You took the correct color pill my friend... welcome to reality. It is a hard life but we live it as free men.
This is so old, boring and out-of-touch. Not worthy of comment.
Ah, -newbie- The old go to for stuck up freepers.
Who the hell cares when you joined, doesn’t make you any smarter.
Deal with Obama, you deserve him.
Actually, I think HE would stop, only becaue he is lazy and hates to even pretend to work. But would the Dems stop? No. They would totally control the nation after four more years of him.
