    At least give us a reach-around

    The Internet is buzzing about mismanagement of Romney's Campaign and money spent for flawed data. While I am certain that Karl Rove and Dick Morris did a bunch of Jäger-Bombs Tuesday night, that does not take into account the larger issue.
    You couldn't sling a dead cat without hitting a journalist that was in the bag for the Obama campaign, and even the Great One would not have been able to pay for the services he recieved quid pro quo.
    Can you assign a dollar amount on all of the free press BHO recieved? What about lying through omission (business lay-offs, Iran hostility, Sandy et al) days prior to the election. Hostile intervention by debate moderators and clever sound bites from myriad television worker bees.
    Romney had a flawed campaign to be sure. But the deck was stacked against him from the start.

    Yep, and in particular two thirds of the nation's media outlets [the pro-Obama media] pounded Romney for all of September over his Libya statement while falling all over themselves to give Barack one of their patented free press passes on Benghazi-gate.

    Before the election one of the major polling firms revealed that for the first time ever more citizens felt that the bulk of the nation's media outlets were left-biased rather than politically neutral . . . and I suspect that this election season pushed another million or two into the former category of deep suspicion where the neutrality of the press is concerned.

    Romney's campaign was to a degree flawed because Romney was flawed, to a degree.

    He and his campaign tried to be all things to all people. I heard a political commentary on NPR that one of Romney's biggest campaign mistakes was to try to be "mega-conservative" when he was fending off Santorum and Newty.

    He was never a solid candidate at any point on the conservative or independent spectrum.

    Well the problem is that most journalists and editors are some variation or the other of effete liberal. Not too long ago George Soros began donating to journalism colleges, by the way, and Soros is an out and out socialist and as far left as they come.

    But my point being that these journalists are true believers who honestly think that 45 percent of the nation owes it to the remaining 55 percent to pay their way through life. They BELIEVE all the twaddle they spew and so they KNOW that Obama really and truly is their . . . Political Messiah.

    Republicans have got to stop attemting to please everybody. If undecideds wanted to vote liberal they already have a candidate. How did they not learn from McCain? I do wonder if the Mormanism (sp?) kept some idiots at home? Herman Cain was my first choice.

    That was Santorum's song and dance - and I agree with that stance.

    However, to contradict this concept, I would have strongly opposed Santorum as a POTUS candidate essentially because of his far right, radical social conservative position.
