Conservatives Struggle To Explain How Mitt Romney Lost 2012 Presidential Election
Republicans across the country were shellshocked as President Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s presidential election, finishing the race with 332 electoral votes and winning every battleground state except for North Carolina. The blame game began almost immediately, as Republicans looked to determine how a vulnerable incumbent like Obama had found a pathway to reelection.
The evidence behind the president’s victory points toward a stronger appeal to middle-class Americans, one of the most formidable ground games in the history of politics, and serious failures within the GOP to attract Latino and women voters. But a faction of conservatives were having none of it -- offering up instead a series of explanations for their nominee’s loss, rounded up below:
The media selectively reported Romney's gaffes.
In an op-ed posted to Fox News, Rich Noyes of the conservative Media Research Center slammed the “media’s biased gaffe patrol” for only magnifying every alleged Romney gaffe while failing to treat the president’s missteps equally.“When Obama infamously declared,'You didn’t build that,' ABC, CBS, NBC didn’t report the politically damaging remark for four days,” Noyes wrote. In contrast, the Republican National Committee pounced on the remarks, selectively editing them for use in advertising, and even building an entire convention theme around the out of context quote. In the end, instead of turning on Obama, some voters reacted to the remarks by saying the words in context made them feel more positive about the president.
Fact-checkers were biased.
Noyes, in his mostly bizarre reading of the GOP ticket’s loss, also took aim at bias among the fact-checkers who essentially did their jobs and truth-teamed the Romney campaign's factual misstatements. Noyes homed in on Paul Ryan’s tale about the closure of a General Motors plant at the GOP Convention -- widely criticized as misleading -- arguing the vice-presidential nominee was “correct in all the details.” Noyes curiously left out that Ryan later backpedaled on his own claim, or that on more than one occasion, the Romney campaign was at times called out by its own surrogates for engaging in dishonest attacks.

There's no way anyone with even the remotest access to the internet—and its myriad polling aggregator sites—would think they were headed toward any sort of big victory. That's why conservative media worked so hard to convince their audience that the polling was "skewed". They willfully made themselves breathtakingly stupid.
And now, refusing to learn their lesson, they continue to willfully disregard the evidence.

That's the speculation. In his letter of resignation, he said it was because of an extramarital affair. However, the timing is rather suspicious considering the Benghazi hearings are next week, and his sudden departure because of a breach in his marriage is a little suspect. But maybe so.

Like when you voted for Bush, the guy responsible for the 2008 Great Depression.
Uh, your party had a little something to do with it. 9/11 had a little something to do with it. Two wars which democrats also voted for and supported to fund had a little something to do with it. Fannie and Freddie, the Democrats' darling, had a little something to do with it too.

Democrats also had control of Congress beginning January 2007. You must not have remembered.

I hate war, but I don't have a choice. Health insurance pays for viagra for these old flaccid coots to get a woody, but they whine if insurance covers birth control. Insurance covers gastric bypass because a person is so gluttonous that they gained 300 lbs, but birth control or abortion? They scream. Makes no sense.
The point is that no one gets to pick and choose. The healthy pay for the sick who use insurance more. It is what it is. People need to mind their own business and stop hating others.

One more time you prove yourself to be a hypocrite. You are one of the biggest haters on this thread. You hate those;
- Are religious
- Are anti abortion/murder
- Those who are conservative politically and socially
- Those who are against gay marriage
- You are against any restrictions by a government to abortion but you love the fact the government forces you to buy a product you may not want, in this case health insurance
- You hate law enforcement personell
- You hate the military
- You hate any black who does not buy the liberal left line and dare to be republican/conservative

Yes, but it's more than speculation. An Obama voter would not get it, but anyone else could easily conclude any dignified military leader would not want to work for Obama after Benghazi.

Most people have no idea how much turmoil and anger this Obama-Benghazigate has caused in the military and intelligence community.

Obama is a despicable individual and Hillary is just as evil.
