Autopsying Gov. Mitt Romney's Presidential Campaign

Full story: Wall Street Journal

Regarding your editorial "Hope Over Experience" : Over the years, the Republican Party and many of its candidates have drifted into a strategy of always trying to play it safe, an attempt to appeal to everyone but instead creating a vacuum when it comes to principles.

So you liberals are laughing at 7.9% unemployment, gas doubled since Bush was in office, the stock market tanked 432 points after Obama was elected, 47 million Americans live in poverty collected foodstamps and welfare, Iran shots at one of our drones, the crisis in New York and New Jersey are far from over by Obama got what he needs, a photo op in New Jersey with Republican Chris Christie, CIA director scandal affair which like the drone being shot at just happened to be reported AFTER Obama's re-election.

16 trillion dollar debt 6 trillion by Barack Hussein Obama who happened to be a dog eater, Koran reader, pot smoker and cocaine snorter. It's in Obama's own book Dreams from my father. Obamacare will bankrupt us and there will be fighting in the hospital ER rooms. You white guilt liberals are really ignorant.

Top 1% pay 40% of our taxes. Top 20% pay 70% of our taxes. Top 20% pay 86% of our taxes, which means that 80% pay only 14% in taxes. That would be you LOSERS.

It's disgusting that Obama did his photo op with Chris Christie and then took off to Las vegas.

Americans in New York and New Jersey are still without ppower, food and water. Obama is nowhere to be found.

Long odd even gasoline lines have caused fights and riots at the station.

Home are being robbed after the police and firemen kicked in their doors to see if anyone was at home. Robbers see that and come back and then rob the homes.

Romney lost because he didn't care about 47% of voters. Add to that the female vote and he got what he sowed.

Please! Mitt lost BECAUSE of Hurricane Sandy; Obama was just fortunate. Who else thinks so.

http://nation.foxnews.com/hurricane-sandy/201...

In his post, he thanked a number of people who helped make the president’s re-election possible, especially “Mother Nature.”

“You, Mother Nature, with all your horrific damage, death and destruction you caused last week, you became, ironically, the undoing of a Party that didn’t believe in you or your climate changing powers,”

http://nation.foxnews.com/chris-matthews/2012...

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week.‘Cause I think the storm was one of those things. No. Politically, I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.”

No storm? Then Obama gives a concession speech.

Of the 2009 deficit,$300 Billion was tacked on by the (Dem) 110th Congress with the another $350 Billion in unspent TARP monies, which Obama chose to spend. Additionally, the 111th Congress modified the budget (per Obama's request) to add on $Billions more.

Tax evasion is ILLEGAL. If evasion is the issue, then criminal charges would be forthcoming. Avoidance is perfectly legal, including the refusal to repatriate overseas earnings and subject those earnings to punitive taxation. In fact, almost everyone of any wealth, including retirees (or those with retirement accounts, including the Feds and States) will have some of their holdings in overseas accounts as part of a diversified portfolio.

Vague warnings? From the CIA. Ignored by Bush and Cheney
to the extent that CIA people were asking to be transferred
to other jobs out of pure frustration.

Haven't you noticed? God answered Obama's prayers and ignored those from Republicans. That should tell you something. Hurricane Sandy was more than just a "fortunate" occurrence.

There have been worse running mates, at least from a vote-getting perspective. E.g, Richard Cheney, James Danforth Quayle, Robert J. Dole, and William Miller. And that doesn't even account for Denocratic veep nominees. Ryan is a young and articulate congressman, but the problem is that he had never run on the state or federal level, and was a yes-man for the Bush government expansionist policy. Ryan is most well-known for his Social Security plan, but Romney hushed him on the policy. Governor Romney apparently thought that a young face would appease the youth vote and the tea party. It was a logical choice for defensive campaign that one might expect from a popular incumbent who campaign strategy is to play out the clock. But it was a mediocre (at best) choice for a candidate who is challenging a charismatic incumbent.
