Why Romney lost?

This is easy to answer and on these very boards about one year ago when I predicted the outcome of this election, I gave the answer, again in April, again last month and again a few days before the election. I called the EC vote count exactly as it came out in April too.

The reason Romney lost was multiple reason but the two single largest reasons; Obama won the 2008 in such a massive landslide, no one could beat him in a second term. He was assured of 270 needed to win but not another landslide. The second reason is math again and numbers I work with everyday as a corporate investor dealing with stocks etc. I have number that are FACTUAL on my desk each day AND ROMNEY LIED about nearly every number selection but one. He lied over 100 times on numbers and that is not counting the times he told the same lies on those numbers!

EDUCATED Americans do NOT live in small Town America. We live in larger or mid sized Cities! We do homework on those who run for President instead of listening to some left or right wing radio or TV station and in fact, there is only one left wing TV station and zero left wing radio stations so they are basically all right wing propaganda that even HS educated people hear, get turned off by and will vote the opposite! Thank you right wing propaganda Faux, Savage nation, Oxy Rush and other nutcases who belong in a nuthouse.

Am I a Democrat? Am I a liberal? NO WAY. I'm a moderate Independent who knows BS when I hear it.

Republicans fail to remember; Obama said when running for office in 2008 that after 50 years of Presidents and Congresses tying to pass universal health care like every other nation on earth has, HE WOULD and he did what he was voted to do.

WHAT ELSE DID HE DO HE WAS ELECTED TO DO?

He said he would prevent a Great Depression we were on the verge of with 700,000 jobs being lost each month when he took office which is now a surplus and an economy in recovery.

He said he would end the illegal war in Iraq and he did that too.

He said he would be strong and protect the Homeland unlike Bush did and he did that too!

He said he would get Bin Ladin which Bush failed to do and he did that too. Special Forces do not give orders! The PRESIDENT DOES.

Obama stated to be LGBT friendly and even though voters and a President cannot provide or takeaway Civil Rights, he set a positive tone on that topic since science PROVES it is genetic, starts in 4th month of pregnancy like the other two normal sexual orientations putting the bible false again for those who think the bible condemns it as the word abomination when that word is from 1350AD and not even in the bible and no, the bible says nothing about homosexuality to start with.

This President did everything he said he would!

He will do everything he said he will this time too and people notice and respect that if they can see clearly without blinders and are unbiased!

Obama won in a landslide so putting flags upside down in protest to America means time to move your right wing un-American butt to another nation. Pick Iran!

The FCC will have Faux and right wing radio shutdown within two years and talking heads will be tried for Treason! They deserve it too!

Do you have something to back that up or are you Faux Newsing us?
Murphy was certified the winner in case you're Fauxed up.

If there is a recount, and the results show a West victory, he wins. I would think that you would be in favor of an accurate vote after all.

Yes, a recount is in order here; obviously there is vote fraud.

"After a partial recount Sunday in St. Lucie County, West trailed Murphy by 1,907 votes, or 0.57 percent, across the Martin-St. Lucie-northern Palm Beach district. West lost 132 votes and his Democratic Jupiter opponent dropped 667 with the re-tally of early ballots from Nov. 1 through 3"

What the ..., in counting a measly 3 days of early voting in St. Lucie County, West gained over 500 votes. And that is just in one county. All ballots and machines need to be impounded immediatly!!

In South Florida, Murphy's campaign shrugged off West's legal action, noting that

the margin in their race exceeded the half-percentage point threshold for a recount.

(hahahahahahahahahahaha)

The Democrat has already declared victory and was beginning a three-day "thank you" tour on Thursday on the assumption that he will take office in January.

Murphy said he planned to travel to Washington next week for freshman orientation.

Educated Americans don't live in small towns? Who the hell are you kidding? Get a clue boy, the smart Americans moved out of the cities 15 years ago. What do you think created the building boom? Not low interest rates or the dems pushing mortgages on low income earners, it was educated individuals who didn't want to raise families in the filth of cities. Grow up and get out more.

Given that most, if not all, attempted voter fraud from the last election involved Republicans, it's probably more likely votes for West were over-counted.

Another reason why Romney lost is do to the large egos of talk radio hosts, who are totally out of touch with the rank and file Rep rural southern workers...

I've been all throughout the back rural roads of the South, where you still have southerners living like the people in the movie 'Deliverance'...
Rebel Flag type folks, and others...

They are poor and raw...like that song 'A country boy will survive'...types...

But these egotistical out of touch millionare talk show hosts keep telling them, kept telling them...

'Oh duh...you don't pay taxes'....

How do you think that rang with them?
Anyone, at the fiscal bottom, who busts their butts doing physical labor jobs, come home tired and sweaty, doing all they can within their abiliity to provide for their family...just to hear Rush, Sean, Bortz, tell them...'Oh duh...you don't pay taxes'....totally implying that they're skatting by....

It's an insult to people...
And these talk show hosts say it in a condescending way...as if you should be happy for Berney Madoff types, or Oil Executive types or paper trading wall street types, who earn more in a year in commissions than most will their whole lives...

And somehow poor people who work hard and labor, and will never realize their dreams, are suppose to feel sorry for billionares??

That's why many secretly voted against Romney...cause these out of touch, multi millionare talk show hosts insult the very people who listen to them...

Romney lost not because of his flip flopping but because he relied mostly on the white christian vote, his rhetoric oozed with it. The guy wanted to deconstruct abortion rights, which alienated women. He did nothing to get the latino vote nor the black vote nor the asian vote. Then the 47% of Americans comment, totally bad move. Another thing is in hard economic times more people do rely on government assistance. So every person who loses their job and needs assistance was a voter for Obama, the hard economy only enlarged their numbers. Another thing was Obama catered to the diversity our country has something Romney could care less about. I remember I saw Romney kissing a little white baby, then I thought would he kiss a arab, asian, or black baby. I cant see it, i think no. I don't think Romney is racist but he could care less about the black, latino, and asian community's. And that is why he failed.

The ACTA protests were a gigantic event in Europe and of course the CORPORATE FASCIST MSM did not cover it,
Seriously, if they can bury the story of the Federal Reserve bailing out banks, many in foreign countries, to the tune of 16 + TRILLION Dollars in a short 2 1/2 year period, then this story is easily covered up.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =N8Xg_C2YmG0XX
Fortunately, even though Obama signed the bill in secret and tried to circumvent Congress by claiming it was an executive agreement, rather than a Treaty which would have require the good people of Europe rose up and the politicians backed down.
The bill was abandoned.
"The ACTA protests were a gigantic event in Europe...". Really? I live in Europe, follow the news and current affairs and I have no idea what you are talking about. The European Parliament rejected ACTA, but protests? Nope, none of them that I know of. Btw, the Federal Reserve has bailed out NO European banks, that is the job of national government and the EU over here. Whether it has bailed of foreign branches of American banks, I have no idea.

Sometimes a little dodgy to post your opinions as facts when there are Europeans on here who know the accuracy (or in this case, inaccuracy) of what you post.

Nope - West claims there is voter fraud - very different from there being voter fraud. Possible, after the shinannigans in Florida over Bush's election. However, a claim is not a fact. Or are you so desperate to avoid examining why the Republicans lost on 6 November, you need to use this as if it is substantiated fact?
