Newest one from Grover Norquist
Obama convinced voters that Rmoney was a poopy head
I kid you not

Post election analysis has been rather depressing, almost more so than the election

I think Romney lost mainly because his policies suck.

Rove seems offended he couldn’t buy the election (although his meltdown looked like it was staged for shareholders). Others are saying it’s the darkie vote

But few want to say it comes down to policy

Why?



I thought it was run on policy?

Perhaps the GOP isn’t ready to bail on their old ideas yet so they don’t want to diss them or maybe policy is that worthless

Obama had a bad four years. Romney came close to winning because of that. Only because of that though. See, that was the problem, there was no reason to vote FOR Mitt Romney. The dude is the captain of the 11%, he's a mormon (remember how crazy it was that Kennedy was elected as a catholic?), he has shipped jobs off the China, raided companies and left the employees on their butts, why would anyone ever vote FOR him.

Republicans are scrambling trying to figure out why they lost, you put the wrong guy up there. I've been a republican for a long time and they have forced my hand twice to vote for Obama. In 2008 I cold not vote for Sarah Palin and in 2012 I couldn't vote for Mitt Romney. They've got it all wrong, DESPITE running with Mitt Romney they still almost won.

Mitt Romney stood in front of whoever was there and told them whatever they wanted to here. One minute he's a groundbreaking republican who's working across the table and by his actions a pretty democratic republican. Then he's the super conservative traditionalist who had changed his ways but stood behind everything he had done in the past..... then he went back to being a progressive republican who had strong conservative values......

I do adore all my fellow republicans crying in the streets though, our top republican strategists screamed at the top of their lungs, if you nominate Mitt Romney we will have four more years of Barrack Obama. The failure of the republican party in this election was simple, the voters championed the wrong man despite every warning. Shut up and take your spoonful.

SNL nailed it. Romney had 8 percent unemployment, $5 gas, and a one-debate head start, and he still blew it. Yes, his policies sucked. So did his pandering to everyone.

Kind of hard to win if you tell 1/2 the country to go fuck themselves.

In exit polls Rmoney won on 3 out of the 4 questions asked
The one he lost by a wide margin(like 80% to 20% or something like that) was the one which asked
Do you think he cares about you?

There was a lack of trust and a feeling that he cared about the 1% more than the rest of us

Now that you mention it he did pretty well, considering. Didn't he?

Hey,that info came out yesterday and I worked a long shift :evil:

Here is the latest from Rove:
"Mitt Romney had what I scientifically call a butt-ugly primary"
Well at least he isn't blaming Obama for that
