Interesting.
Looks like Romney's mistake was to approach this whole thing with a pure business approach. You don't do that in politics like you wouldnt approach a business issue with a pure political approach. He needed to strike a balance.
And this Paul Ryan character is too young for the mess of this magnitude. I googled him.
Rice would most probably have advised on how NOT to send mixed messages on critical issues which are suppose to take a back seat in this time of great economic crisis, but they didnt.
<quoted text>
What is he doing to fix it?
Obama was elected and is getting paid to do a job and he is not doing it, period.
He was elected to fix the mess which he failing to do.
He knew what he was inheriting and getting himself into. Obama is not up to the challenge. Its of no use re-electing him and hope for the best. His administration is very weak.
If you Googled Ryan, you would know he was in Congress & voted yes yes yes to the Bush policies.

Romney got tied to those votes when he chose Ryan.

Ever try to run a business with 535 members of the board of directors that had to approve every dollar spent & what it was spent on?

How well would that company do?

Romney's business experience is Romney deciding what to do & doing it. That is worthless in government.

It was a great election, the only dummy not voted out was Bachman.
The women and the Latinos went out and voted in huge numbers, as did the Jews. They said "hell no" to Romney and his billions, he couldn't buy the election afterall. I'm so proud of the American people.
The best part of this past election was watching Karl Rove's meltdown on TV when he realized his impotence and irrelevancy.

and all those billions spent by the Koch brother and Sheldon Adelson with no return.....

It's going to be a big mess. But at least women can still get abortions at the taxpayers' expense and free birth control.
And Latinos can be proud that just made the immigration problem much worse while the economy goes off the cliff.
These were apparently the most important things on the agenda this election.
God performs more abortions than PP.

The GOP are fossils in the Information Age.

The country adamantly rejected the lies, and voted these reality challenged, math rejects into oblivion.

<quoted text> Yeah, Obama is altready wanting the other side to help him. He calls it working together, but actually Obama needs help, because he don't know what he is doing. All he has done in 4 years was going on vacations, tv talk shows, and showing kids films, and spending money.
And the unimagineable--hypocrite Clinton, who in private conversations has more than once said how Obama didn't know what he was doing, helped get him re-elected.

Who Wants a President Who Will Lie to You...Asks Bill Clinton?!

This was the strangest campaign in electoral history. Just when you thought you had seen or heard it all, former President Bill Clinton just had to add a "through the looking glass" quality to the rhetoric that some are calling "ironic."

But truthfully, not even "rank hypocrisy" aptly describes what erupted from the King of Perjury's mouth:

So let me get this straight. An ex-President who was impeached for LYING (perjury, obstruction), defended a current President who lies and has a full time cover-up team (Benghazi, Fast and Furious....and the list goes on...) who is accusing the squeaky clean Mormon who doesn't drink, smoke or even swear of being the liar.

Here's a gem of a quote from Bill Clinton:

“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true? When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar."

Seriously?

From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

helluva guy...his own staffers couldn't even get home...yep, republican

The fact remains that I served my country in time of war and you did not. People like you tried to undermine our efforts. I wonder how many of our soldiers and Marines died due to the confidence that was given to our enemies because of you and your friend's war protests and the fact that they knew that people like you didn't support them and, in fact, were against them, as was proven time and time again by the reception they received from people like you upon their return. You're a coward piece of sh't. Don't lecture me about serving my country.
You sound like that guy from Connecticut. He served during the Vietnam War too. Never even saw Vietnam but implied he did.
