First off "he" was way to over confident! His second mistake WAS cutting a "woman's choice, as to abort or not? Thirdly, and his downfall, I believe...was that the word RESPECT was NOT included in his Manners class to his son..WHO WANTED TO 'TAKE A SWING" to hid dad's opponent..Hmmmm...forgetting.. that it was THEIR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!! If ya can't teach your children the Golden Rule, to value it..THEN how the heck are ya gonna act as a President..TANTRUMS are not allowed in the Oval Office..NO WAY!

Romney the secret liberal dressed in GOP clothes despised the true conservatives and Tea party patriots of which three millions that votes for McCain in 2008 stayed at home and did not vote for Romney. The great American businessman Mitt Romney proved to be spineless and crossing the aisle to his beloved liberals time and again as he intentionally deserted the White, Hispanic and Asian conservatives and Tea Party patriots led by Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. Even the great American woman leader Michele Bachmann who was fighting for re-election in MN was deserted by the GOP RINO Establishment that did not fund Michele because she did not appealed to them more than the left wing liberal that they adore. Mitt Romney despised the talk show hosts Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Mike Gallagher and refused to get interviews that could affect the Conservatives and Tea party Whites, Hispanic and Asians. Clearly, the fact that Romney tried to appease the liberals as the perfect Maverick like McCain who crosses the aisle routinely to appease the liberals made him losing his loyal base that he was hiding from. Romney was hiding from the great Sarah Palin that could bring him three million votes of the tea Party and conservatives while he ran to talk shows on NBC, CBS to get liberals that never voted for him. Romney also tried to hide the Obama’s failure to save the lives of four American heroes in US Embassy in Libya that were attacked on by al Qaida terrorists and failed to show the hypocrisy of Obama only to appease the liberals. Shame on you Mitt Romney for failing GOP by deserting the conservatives and Tea Party great Americans while losing to Obama who offered Obama free checks to liberals while you offered jobs that they did not request.

Yes, Obama and the liberal media hoodwinked and bamboozled the stupdi American people again.
Yes, Americans are stupid and this proved it beyond a reasonable doubt.
We know 93% of the racist blacks voted for Obama along with 71% of the wetback and 70% of the stupid Jews who vote Democrat but no one knows why?
Obama also had his queeers, white guilt liberals, white women and zit faced punks. That's Obama's base.Obama is a fucking mulatto. He had a white mother named Stanley who dumoped him off at her parents. Stanley was a dippie hippie atheist. Stanley liked the dark Muslim meat and married another black Muslim. Obama threw his own white grandmother under the bus last election. In the book by Dinesh D'Souza titled 'The rooots of Obama's rage' Dinesh described in full detail the real barack Hussein Obama and it's NOT a guy you would have a beer with.
Obama's father ran off when Obama was just two and was a bigamist, adulterer, liar and drunk who killed a man in Africa and then died in a DWI accident when he hit a tree. Obama's father was a Muslim but didn't pratice.
Obama has many half brothers and sisters because his dad screwed many blacks and white women.
George Obama was living on pennies a day in Africa while Obama had millions and didn't help George Obama his brother one damn bit.
Obama ate a dog, studied the Koran and smoked pot and snorted cocaine. A real role model for liberals children.
Gun makers Smith & Wesson Holding (SWHC) and Sturm Ruger (RGR) rose sharply Wednesday in a repeat of sorts of the response to Obama's first presidential victory in 2008. Gun stocks have performed well over the four years of Obama's term. Sturm Ruger, for example, rose from $7.04 on Election Day in 2008 to $47.68 Wednesday, Reuters reported.

You think when 96% blacks and 75% Hispanics voting for Obama isn't racist and based of getting free money and benefits because they feel like they're entitled is good for the country. Look at Greece you idiots.
Three American soldiers died and 31 civilians died in Iraq after a huge bomb exploded. You didn't hear a word of it from the liberal biased media who did an excellent job for Obama covering things up.(see Fast and Furious, Solyndra and other companies like it and Benghazi massacre)
Obama says to vote for "REVENGE."
Fast and Furious where US border agent Brian Terry was murdered by a US assault weapon that Obama was letting the Mexican drug cartels to gte their hands onto 7.9% unemployment,49 million Americans on foodstamps and welfare, 13 million Americans out of work, higher than when Obama came into office. 6 trillion dollars in debt added, Solyndra, by Barack Hussein Obama,Obama says to vote for revenge in Ohio, BENGHAZIGATE where Obama will face impeachment for not supporting Americans in Benghazi who were pleading for help and the lies during and after the Benghazi attack by al-Qaeda in which Obama, his administration and the liberal media blamed it all on a anti Muslim video which was a lie, GM and Chrysler both went bankrupt, GM still owes us 26 billion dollars and every subsidized Chevy Volt made loses $49,000 Obama did his photo op in New Jersey and took right off to Las Vegas not even bothering to stop into New York where Staten Island is destroyed.

What went wrong for Republicans was electing Romney as their candidate. That sealed the win for Obama.

The party of "personal responsibility" lost the "most important election of their lifetimes".
How did they loose?
Hispanics?
Women?
Because Chris Christie put his devastated state and it's people above presidential politics?
No.
They lost the election because of their own policies.
I enjoy watching the pundits blame everybody except for themselves.
Their policies do not work. And even though they have a machine to jam their "virtues" down the throats of Americans 24/7 most Americans understand their policies are not workable.
16 trillion in debt, but we cannot raise taxes??
Americans on unemployment or welfare are just lazy????

The reason they lost is simple. They are loud, unpleasant, angry, and wrong.
The fact Mitt is a douchebag didn't help either.

If they want to win maybe they should take personal responsibility for THEIR loss. But I expect they will not....ever.

That seems just a little over gloomy don't you think?
Some of your numbers may be a bit inflated.
Just try to relax, It will be ok.

What went wrong ?

1) The Republican Party is a bordello
2) The Republican primary was a clown show
3) Romney is a loser
4) Romney picked a loser for his running mate
5) Donald Trump and Glenn Bytch supported Romney

... just a sample, lol

Republicans, so far, appear unable to accept that real Christian American voters rejected the party that tried to win by preaching hate and fear.

The Republican message was paid for by people, ike the Kochs. who are contemptuous of the majority of Americans.

Their downright meanness caused a backlash that got out the vote for the Democrats.
