Of course. Its that he said it, not that he actually believes it.

Everything this man has ever said is so completely out of whack and absent contact with reality. Hes almost like a live action cartoon character.

Agreed that his 47% comment hurt!! But seriously:

1) Cristie killed him with his unsolicited praise for Obama after Hurricane Sandy hit; which by the way was another disaster for FEMA.

2) Knucklehead Todd Akin gave dems the ammunition they needed for their war on women campaqign.

3) The Corporate Fascist Media providing massive pro-Obama propaganda.

4) Hurricane Issac & Hurricane Sandy.

5) And, of course, the miserable Presidency of George W. Bush, which was an albatross around Romney's neck.

Romney did make mistakes that hurt him but had the election been honest, he would have won and the Sequester would not have been necessary.

Ill grant you some of those points have merit. Cristie was a massive uppercut. Akin was like a low blow. However I would full disagree for some of these points because Romney did much of his own damage. From his alien loving faith that promises him his own planet, to never really gaining the support of his own party, to him in candidcy debates showing how out of touch he is in an economically repressed era, willingly wagering roughly more than half of what millions in this country suffering make per year, to him going out of his way to piss all over Europe, to 47%, to his campaign promise to tax the poor (albeit indirectly stated) and sooooo many more.

He kept the hits rolling one right after another and it is astonishing he even got the support that he had because quite literally the only thing he really ever had going for his was never anything more than "Im not Obama"

The loss is due to the dictator and his family taking so many expensive vacations, playing golf non stop, spending on all those epensive clothe's, giving our tax dollars to his middle eastern buddy's, and having those expensive parties in OUR WH for his illegal famiys and middle eastern buddy's. Of course, the left doesn't think this is so bad. We're going going, pretty soon, we'll be gone...no more USofA.

you don't thinkt that the republican half of that 47% he talked so disparagingly about wasn't a little put off by that? really? I mean, they may be dipshit trailer trash, but they do have feelings...

Don't stop. Keep going.

- He refused to show is tax returns.

- Ann acted like a bitch and a half scolding the public.

- Romney couldn't do a sit down with middle Americans without simply repeating what they complained about.

- Romney would have completed his presidency his first day in office after rescinding or signing so many new bills.

- He picked Paul Ryan as a counter to his stupidity. So Ryan tries his hand at talking half truths.

- Romney could never answer in detail what his plans were, only in general terms.

The man was a walking, talking CEO who left his options opens because he didn't know what he was talking about.

Trouble was that what he said was correct, he just shouldn't have said it until after the election when he could start cutting off the "freebies" for the freeloading "LIV's"

Romney lost the election for the very same reason Obama got elected in the first place.

Stupid people do stupid things and Obama has been appealing to the stupid people since 2004.

Here is irrefutable proof:



Between stupid people and the MSM news bias, even Jesus Christ would have lost against Obama.

Romney lost because he had no plan to succeed, no desire to govern, no real interest in the job, and because he openly displayed his contempt for 47% of the American people because they weren't rich enough.

He's an elitist turd, and it was publicly revealed to everyone in the video of his speech.

When you campaign like an idiot, you lose End of story.

PLEASE keep hating and dividing into the 2014 and 2016 elections, Bama. That'll make the Democrats' job SO much easier.

Stupid people think you can diss 47% of the electorate and win, and that the reason is that the media's "biased."

GO on being stupid, PLEASE.:)
