Better luck next election year, Grand Old Party

Romney’s loss should demonstrate to Republicans why they should want the Citizen’s United Decision overturned, as well.
First, did he win the nomination by presenting his ideas, in the best manner? No. He bombarded any leader in the primaries with negative ads, until he was the only one left.
You got someone who couldn’t relate to normal people and they couldn’t relate to him. The Southern Bible Belt base didn’t like him, because of they weren’t sure he really believed what they did or was just giving them a sale pitch he had no intention of following through. There were Romney people weren’t willing to wait an hour to vote.
And, you thought you could win the Rust Belt of Ohio, with someone who made millions shipping manufacturing jobs to China? That’s like nominating a coyote for the henhouse guard job and being surprised the chickens weren’t having it.
I had a chuckle, when I saw the American Crossroads ad on TV and a woman talked about her children having to deal with the debt and having to find jobs. My thought was, “If I didn’t like the president because of unemployment, why would I vote for someone who made fewer jobs, in this country?”
And, really, a candidate with Swiss and Cayman Island bank accounts? Check the big villain in any cop show or Bond movie. They have those, as well.
One thing that became apparent to me, after the Bush/Kerry campaign was, you can’t just vote against someone; you need someone to vote for. Better luck next time, GOP.
