He lost because Obama's people outworked Romney's people, because Romney characterized 47% of the population voting for Obama as 'unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives,' and because his party has gone loony and it rubbed off on him, particularly women's issues.

Some of it was just Romney himself. He never seemed likable or electable. He never gave people a reason to be FOR him instead of just AGAINST Obama.

So much for the main stream media being in the pocket of liberals. This would be prime fodder for the media if they were in liberals pockets.

No problem, but it's not far off to call them 'people unable or unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives!'

What EXACT mainstream media are you referring to? do not generalize, I want to know who you are
referring to? Surely you don't mean FOXX, that channel is as "fair and balanced" as a Klan meeting, the
Hannity Show ?? Rush? Bill O'Reilly ?? who exactly is this VAST LIBERAL MEDIA ??? Please be more
precise.

Romney lost because he lied, he was a joke and the Republicans did not even like him, but they are
mad Dems. didn't vote for him?? what the heck??? You might want to be a grown up and not be
spoon fed your info, look up what Obama has done, no, really, look up some of the legislation he
passed - it is impressive even to an idiot - especially for women, wages and veterans.

Tip of the Day: dear folks, a small percentage of our oil - ie gas - comes from the Middle East, gas
is traded around the WORLD, that is WORLD. The price of this commodity is dictated by "demand"
- it goes to the highest bidder - kinda like Ebay - really, do you really think oil found in US will
mean cheaper gas???? why?? you know they will sell it to China if it is a better price - that is what
free enterprise is, socialists want cheaper gas that they produced - you need to get your stories
straight - pick a side and stay with it.
If you could sell your lawnmower to your neighbor for $50.00 or send it to China and
get $175.00 for it and they paid the postage, what would you do? Want cheaper gas? get a smaller
car and stop driving 80 miles an hour or better down the freeway. I went to a restaurant and asked
for a nearby Walmart - all the waitresses lived 40 min. away or more and did not know the area.
I asked if they could get a job closer to home, and they said "yes" but they were already use to the
drive and knew the menu and did not want to change. I could not believe it, didn't know if I should
leave a tip or just shake them.

So you're a racist who wants our economy to collapse. Gotcha.

Why don't you just die or self-deport, you evil old turd? No wonder Arizona's the armpit of America with people like you voting 'baggers into office out there. Bought any good government buildings back at a loss lately, chump?

Also because "I'm Mitt Romney" is not a campaign. You know when he realized he lost he was was thinking "But, but, but...I'm Mitt Romney..."

Arrogant a$$.
