Two reasons Romney lost<quoted text>
Nitwit, most kids couldn't name their governor. Virtually all grown up LIV's do know how to get their welfare and food stamps.
Romney was forced to work with an entirely democrat house and senate in Mass. as well. Likely you didn't know that because ur ignorant.
Mr. Romney's seeming malleability proved to be a very successful strategy. He became governor of a left-of-center state, and the presidential nominee of a right-of-center party. And it gave him an aura of non-ideological pragmatism that often frustrated the left's attempts to portray him as the GOP's latest right-wing bogeyman.
But it also contributed to one of Mr. Romney's biggest problems: a difficulty in connecting with voters. Mr. Romney's adaptability often left the public struggling to grasp what he stood for and where his ideological compass was.
This explains the dynamic on display during the GOP presidential primary. Mr. Romney, the default frontrunner by virtue of his 2008 runner-up showing, campaigned with near-universal establishment support against a field of second-tier candidates. Yet a significant bloc of primary voters continually elevated one flawed alternative after another — first restaurant executive Herman Cain, then fallen House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and finally defeated Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum — because they doubted Mr. Romney's conservatism, if not his authenticity.
In other words, Mr. Romney was forced to run hard to capture a nomination he already could not lose.
