Why did Mitt Romney lose the election?


Why do you think he lost? Was it his policies, VP, Sandy or??? Let's please keep this political and not get into name calling or other non-productive things.

    Bush did pretty well until he had to deal with a democratic congress. That 's what ruined the economy, not Bush. It would be hard to find a , "worst candidate" cosidering the opposition . U mean it can can get worse than it is now?

    Romney has more integrity in his little finger than any candidate in recent memory. Politics is a dirty business, and the Obama campaign lied its way to victory with its War on Women and class warfare. 4 more years of stagnation and foodstamps.

    Reagonomics worked, which would have been promoted by Romney. Everyone is a conservative because we all want to balance even our own budget. Romney just changed his mind cuz different times call for different solutions. If he stuck to his principles

    Romney would shave been a president for all , just as he was in the diverse stae of Massachusetts. He has already proved that he can relate to all by doing things for people many of us never will and possibly wouldn't if we had the time an Money.

    Most undecided voters at the end of an election stay home rather than vote at all, though I agree with you that swing voters are less informed, even while I disagree with nearly everything else you say.

    Good points. It was Romney's to lose. Obama did not have more than 52% in any battleground state. 80% of blacks, Latinos and women drank the social-issue Koolaid instead of paying attention to the only important one--the economy. 4 more years--ugh!

    His position on the auto bailout was exactly correct. All the president was put off the problem. Those companies are in worse shape now because they never dealt with the real problem and are still strangled with legacy costs.

    Why can't Obama be as transparent as Bush was? Obama is more like Bush, but worse , than any other president.

    I agree that the Ryan choice was a horrible one. It was bad partially for the same reason as Palin (courting people who already vote Republican) and because Ryan did not make up for Romney's weaknesses but emphasized them.

    People don't realize that getting stuff from govt can lead to slavery and manipulation, not to say anything about lack of freedom. People need to talk more and brainstorm for answers. Some women bought the idea of free birth control instead of jobs.

    "I know what to do and I know how to do it." That was Romney's theme but he never told us what he was going to do it nor how he was going to do it. The people wanted more than rhetoric from him, but that was all he provided.
