"We went into the evening confident we had a good path to victory," said one senior adviser. "I don't think there was one person who saw this coming."

Note this thread here about how bad Team Romney's operation really was...
Call me crazy but there needs to be an investigation into the computer system with the results. It IS a shock! There is something fishy, I believe. How hard would it be to tamper with the computers? We already know numerous people were cheating; voting more than once, and some not even registered. I am a level headed person all the time; and a professional as well but I detect something weird. Doesn’t anybody else?
They didn’t take into account just how much cheating Democrats do at the polls.
It is ironic that a man known for his prowess as a CEO was unable to assemble a competent staff for his campaign.
He under estimated the stupidity of the american people. Big mistake.
Also, possibly Trump should offer 5 million to the person who messed with the computers in the voting to come forward, or for information.
Very, VERY fishy....
Unfortunately many conservatives saw this coming, starting with Mike Savage.
The Romney advisers avoided Michael and his sage advice.
I cannot say that made a difference. I was shocked and stunned by the loss, but not totally surprised.
The usual allegations of fraud in the inner cities (Philadelphia with 99% turnout?), and too many Romney supporters staying home, were problems.
Now, it just breaks my heart when I think about that video of Mitt arriving at that airport unannounced and being met by thousands in that parking garage where he placed his hand over his heart and said, This is how you know youre going to win.
I am just so heartsick about this. Mitt and all of us worked so hard for the election.
“I am a level headed person all the time; and a professional as well but I detect something weird. Doesnt anybody else?”
I do; I didn’t think Mitt would have a landslide, but there is no way more than half of the voters see any hope with Obama. As for people “sitting this one out”, who has the luxury of dooing that in this economy?
I’m skeptical, but don’t expect anything to be done about it. In the meantime, those Obama voters who used to benefit from my spending (waitresses, fast food workers, etc.) will have to tighten their belts as I continue to tighten mine.
Ironically, I think the GOP would have been well served to have a popular "red state" governor run at the top of the ticket -- and have Romney serve as the campaign director.
One more bit of irony is that if you had gone back to early 2012 before the start of the primary season, you'd be hard-pressed to find any conservatives (including just about everyone here on FreeRepublic) who would not have been thrilled to hear that Romney would not be elected President. Let's face it, folks ... the Republican Party lost with a candidate who none of us wanted anyway.
Who is Project Orca?
I would say I was pretty shocked at well. I felt sure he was going to win...
I now fully grasp the factual evidence, RINOS are the death nails to winning national elections, but the STUPID party is too STUPID to understand this! All you who said stick to your principles, and I said ABO because I want to save my country, I thank you for at least trying.
Well, like many of us, he believed Americans would see the light.
But now...there`s no light to see.
Didn’t see it coming...shocked.
Yup that’s the trouble with the GOPe.
That became abundantly clear. He wasn`t willing to get into a pandering bidding war.
But apparently, in New Amerika, that`s what it takes.
corruption... Romney didn’t anticipate the level of voter fraud and corruption in the system
