Wrong, in 2008 while campaigning he promised to send more troops to Afghanistan which he did.I like this comment from the clip: Why did Romney Lose?
1) Underestimating the ever increasing number of takers who want "free" stuff.
2) Underestimating the power of the stupid to be suckered into believing cute slogans like "hope", "change", and "forward".
3) The refusal to take the fight to Obama on things like Fast & Furious and Benghazi.
4) Trying to pander to and placate the "social" conservatives and holy rollers by focusing on issues other than the economy.
5) The inability to make Obama own up to the terrible record accumulated in his first term.
I fully agree with it.
Why didnt Romney take the fight to Obama and ask him about the 2008 election lies (promise) to pull US troops out of Afghanistan within 11 months of taking office?
Why didnt he put it to Americans that Obama sent MORE troops
Theres no such thing as clean campaign, Obama played dirty in those adverts, Romney should have used the empty promises from 2008 to fight back.
GW Bush is not the type that would have let Obama get away with it if he were in Romney's shoes.
Romney's camp should take the blame for the loss. They did not lose because Obama ran a better campaign. Obama failed and the Repuiblicans should have used his failure to outdst him.
Those who say the Republicans were an obstruction and the reason Obama failed are politically immature. That happens all over the world where the houses (Congress and Senate in the case of the US) are split between the parties. Its not the Republicans that said Obama must give bailouts to companies that secure jobs in China, and fail to support small business at home.
Obama should have been nailed to the cross for his dismal failure. Theres a lot of ammunition that could have been used to get this incompetent out of the White House.
He says the best is yet to come? What best, what is it that he thinks he can do which he failed to do in the past four years in an economy that has gotten worse since he took over. The US debt has mounted since Obama took office. He blame Bush for his inability to bring that under control. How can he bring it under control when he hands free money over to companies in what is suppose to be a capitalist society?
Spending doesn't reset when the new guy takes over, there was plenty already in place including a couple of unfunded wars.
The stimulis included 287 billion in tax cuts, tax rebates and also tax incentives for small businesses, the back bone of the job creators in this country.
As for your last line, the U.S goverment has a long history of subsidizing corporations(see big oil), this has been going on since long before Obama.
