Extremely unfortunate. But his Mormonism was a drawback and neither of us can deny that fact even though we both voted for him - twice...I'm just assuming you did too.
He would have been a great leader regardless of his personal beliefs. Hopefully, these "evangelicals" have learned their lesson.
I would have voted for Giuliani if he had been the frontrunner and he was pro choice. He, too, would have been a great leader. Sometimes you have to look past the ideal and see what's best for the country as a whole. Abortion isn't going to just disappear overnight because of a pro life or pro choice president.
Most Christians know this. Not sure about these "evangelicals".
why do you believe that "his Mormonism was a drawback"????....

She is obsessed with Carol and uses the War on Women Cliche after it was exposed Democrats pay women less in D.C which was an excellent fact presented when the lie backfired on Obama & Democrats..
The leftists on this thread are obsessed with those ( Conservatives ) who will call out their BS and aren't intimidated by their jackass-pack attacks.

Carol's courage and forthright candidness have been fortified through the flames of their obsessive attacks
As a Great Sword is forged in that same manner.

Glad you brought up the leftist's catch phrase: "War On Women" by Conservatives/Republicans:
When the great leftist liberal heroine Barbra Walters was asked by O'Reilly if she believed there was a War On Women being waged by Conservatives/Republicans Walters said: "No, Women have the opportunities available and open to them to achieve whatever they want".

But, yes, Galt, it really is extremely unfortunate that some people can't see the bigger picture despite their personal beliefs and a great leader like Romney slipped through our fingers.
However, he, himself, was responsible for letting several golden opportunities slip through his own fingers in two of the debates.
You can't blame that on anyone else but him. Like O'Reilly said, Romney just didn't want it bad enough...it was his for the taking.
I kind of have to agree with him.
O'Reilly is not a Conservative...more like a Long Island RINO.....

who sucks up to Obama in interviews instead of asking tough questions....

Federal Judge Richard Kopf, who was appointed to a U.S. District Court in Nebraska by George H.W. Bush, slammed the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision in his personal blog, Hercules and the Umpire, and told the judges to "stfu."

He said that the court's ruling looked bad, as the majority opinion was signed on to by five male, Catholic judges appointed by a Republican president.

"To the average person, the result looks stupid and smells worse," he wrote. "The decision looks misogynist because the majority were all men. It looks partisan because all were appointed by a Republican. The decision looks religiously motivated because each member of the majority belongs to the Catholic church, and that religious organization is opposed to contraception."

Kopf argued that the Supreme Court should have left the case alone, and should stay far away from controversial issues.

"Next term is the time for the Supreme Court to go quiescent–this term and several past terms has proven that the Court is now causing more harm (division) to our democracy than good by deciding hot button cases that the Court has the power to avoid. As the kids says [sic], it is time for the Court to stfu," he wrote.

Maybe. But not when someone calls me that. Then it's a compliment. If you saw what I look like you would understand! Back in the 70's I begged people to call me that. It made me feel like a menacing, street smart guy. Which is the last thing I am!

Democrats, the liberal media are dishonest. Shame on the Republicans if they let CNN, MSNBC, CBS who are known Ministry of Propaganda members host debates from now on.
"Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling's annual survey of the American public's most and least trusted news outlets found that NBC and MSNBC have sunk to the very bottom this year. Only 3% choose either as the networks they trust above all others. Fox News is the most trusted, with 35% choosing the "Fair and Balanced Network."
Fox News had its worst ratings since 2001, according to the latest figures.

The network had a 13-year low in the coveted 25-54 demographic in primetime and fell to its lowest total day ratings since 2008.

January marked the worst month ever for Fox’s "Hannity" among the 25-54 demographic, as well as the channel’s lowest total viewership in the 10 p.m. hour since July 2008

You are correct.

John Boehner Can’t Name One Example Of Obama Breaking The Law In 12 Paragraph CNN Op-Ed

If Boehner had a specific example of the president breaking the law, he would be using it. The fact that he has been trying to whip Republicans into a frenzy over this lawsuit without telling them why they are suing the president speaks volumes about the merits of what Rep. Boehner is up to.

This lawsuit is a gimmick that is designed to distract Republican voters from the fact that in 2010 and 2012 Republicans promised to repeal Obamacare, but here we are in 2014, and not only is the ACA the law of the land, but it is more popular than ever. Republicans promised to shut down the government until they got their way, and failed. Failure is the defining characteristic of Boehner’s time as Speaker.

The years of Republican majority control of the House have been wrapped in failure. The lawsuit is nothing more than a shiny distraction. Benghazi didn’t distract. This IRS conspiracy flamed out, so all Boehner has left is an empty threat to sue the president.

Democrats are raising record sums of money while conservatives see through the gimmicks. Speaker Boehner has unleashed a backlash from all sides. Just like his CNN op-ed Boehner’s speakership has been full of bluster but ineptly lacking in action.

In other words, every time John Boehner brings up this lawsuit, House Republicans take another step towards losing in 2014.

Aggrieved White People: Obama Is the “Worst President” Since WWII

......this result was driven entirely by aggrieved conservative white people.....

This is not to say that the poll is “skewed,” but rather. that America is skewed, and so is our mainstream media, including CNN. Aggrieved white assholes are as entitled to their opinions as anyone else, but it would be nice of journalists, who are supposed to act in everyone’s interest, to label them as such.

The vast majority of Americans will not support a president who shows blatant disregard for the Constitution. You can deny it all you want, but even some of your own kind are shocked and dismayed at Barry Soetoro's anti-American behavior.

Obama won in 2012 largely on the premise of a war against women and them not having access to free birth control.
Now they have it with Obamacare.
So either you're saying ObamaCare is a failure because poor women still can't get them or there wasn't a war on women because they didn't want birth control in the first place.
Which is it?
Seems to me Obama won because the reich wing candidate was lost and a lot weaker....
