Good riddance to Mitt Romney, the man who "ran one of the most cynical, dishonest and disreputable presidential campaigns  in modern American history. "

Good read.


If Republicans want an honest and accurate opinion as to why their candidate got crushed, this is a "pulls no punches" article.

If you think you can handle the truth, read it.

Now to be fair, President Obama had his share of truth-stretching assertions, but it was hardly endemic to his campaign.

wow, 

how fair.

I would argue that it is endemic to his presidency.

Agree, I really disliked this man for his greed, and boldface lies, but especially for his insensitivy toward the working people..

 He actually spoke from the heart when he said, " I like to fire people" and when he said. "  Where your money is, is where you heart is " off shore !.

it really is fascinating how someone like romney can get so many people he just he hates and has no use for to support him so diligently.  of course, obama does the same thing but romney was a special case.

How dare the Republicans run someone who balanced a budget? What's wrong with them. Lets continue down the same path of huge deficits and record unemployment. Obama really cares about the working man. Yeah right. Your about to be taxed like never before (if you work).

Things are worse now than when he became president and they will only be worse when he leaves office. Dishonest campaign, you guys are a riot? Like Romney killed that woman that died from cancer? 

How about the POTUS being unavailable for Fast & Furious or Benghazi? Where was he for 7 hours while our people were being massacred? No photo op this time of the situation room? I guess he was primping for his campaign trip to Vegas.

Others also want to refrain from pointing out that Gary Johnson is a fraud.... Who is embezzling campaign and fundraising money...

Wouldn't doubt it. I only voted for him to push the 3rd party agenda. Not him as a person.

People put too much faith in princes.

Fair enough

We'll see what happens in 2016. Maybe the republicans will bring some fresh meat to the table.

i will comment to say, i agree, as i point out by starting various threads when i get a reprieve from the rightwing lunacy that needs to be adddressed.  obama is full of garbage.  i wish the republicans would have run a good, decent or even bad candidate instead of the disaster that was romney and his crew.

Romney was a joke of a candidate. He was being portrayed as some huge ideological conservative when he is probably the most liberal republican ever given the nomination.

I thank God, in a way that he did not win. He would have turned the GOP into more of a liberal party.

In retrospect after 2008 many agreed that McCain was a very devoted centrist. Romney has proven in MASS that he was willing to reach across the aisle and even provided the precursor for obamacare. He signed off on gun bans, and flip flopped on every other issue where he was exposed as the liberal he was.


Maybe the GOP puts up an actual conservative candidate. Not Rubio , not Ryan, but someone more like Rand Paul. If they don't they will become irrelivent.

The choice between two liberals is no choice at all.

The point is that we are not being given a choice and we are not being represented.

i'm guessing they overreact and pick rubio, which will be a disaster for republicans like 2012 was.

they should pick a guy--no one will be able to vote just once for him.

While you libs are so busy patting your guy on the back, we already some new embarassments to cover-up. 

Petraeus resigns and the FBI had to know he was compromised when he was vetted for CIA director and said nothing. 

Iran fires on a drone that just didn't make it to your news until after election. Benghazi hearings this week, Petraeus certainly will be subpoenaed to tell his story at some point.

Fiscal cliff is coming, hope the government $ keeps flowing for the entitlements. I'd hate to see anything happen to our government dependents (voters). 

Take the charity cases away from Obama in this election and he loses large. Why people on government assistance even get to vote is beyond me. Wouldn't you vote yourself a raise?

You do know, Petraeus is a Republican, don't you?

rick is not your average rightwinger.

He uses his smarts and falls into the Libertarian category for sure.
