    The party has incorrectly assumed that their path to the presidency is to become more like the Democrats. I don't think independents saw a significant difference between the two candidates. Had they chosen a candidate that has actually been consistent in his views, and one that could have explained better that WE HAVE NO MONEY, the outcome may have been different.

    Big Bird?? Come on. That was an opportunity to really talk about what the role of government should be. Instead we got a promise that the budget would be balanced with no specifics and not significant cuts. No one believed that.

    Why Romney lose? Cause Romney makes his fortune on losing.

    Losing other peoples jobs.

    Losing memory of which statement he said an hour previously.

    Losing touch with reality.

    Losing 47% of population based on stupid premise.

    Losing debate 2 making false statement about Benghazi.

    Losing debate 3 by agreeing with Obama

    Losing commercial war because Romney flip flopped so much, all Obama had to do was show clips of Romney saying the opposite of what he previously just said.

    Losing support of other demographic groups, by focusing soley on white older wealthy males and white conservative women married to those wealthy males.

    Losing rich donor money, which will insure both Romney and Carl Rove will be insignificant in future.

    Just a couple minor corrections.

    Bain didn't lose people's jobs. The organizations were failing and they either fixed them or closed them.

    Flip-flopping? Correct.

    What is reality? The new demographic? Correct.

    Premise was correct. As will be seen shortly when the money runs out.

    He was sabotaged in debate 2 by moderator. His statement on Beghazi was correct.

    Agree on Debate 3

    Agree on flip flopping

    No, he didn't focus on rich white people, he incorrectly assumed that the "new demographic" shared basic American values. They do not.

    Agree, this election will be the end of Rove. Romney won't run again.

    All Crowley did was to point out that Romney was wrong on a proven fact.

    The Benghazi thing is a storm in a teacup but the rightwing media have talked it up as Apocalypse 1.

    "American values" (whatever they are) are not what is at stake. The minorities voted for Obama because the Pugs attacked them. And they didn't like it.

    Come sit down beside me I said to myself
    And although it doesn't make sense
    I held my own hand as a small sign of trust
    And together I sat on the fence

    I don't know why it's so hard for people to understand this. They act like if Bain hadn't gotten involved those jobs would have existed forever.

    I think Mr. Romney is fine, he speaks for what he believes in, what he thinks is best for America. I agreed with most of all the things he said. The only thing that I think didn't help him is seem like he speak so gernerally, broadly, the broader of the issues, he didn't really going into details, he didn't elaborate to details like how Obama did. I can see from both the convention, seem like Romney can't seem to connect to the audience alot like how Obama did. I still voted for Romney though.

    We, the 59 millions voters who vote for Romney, who didn't want president Obama for the 2nd term, now have to live and obey with all the policies of Obama administration for the next 4 years. The Americans have no choice, is not like they can go anywhere, America is their homeland, their families and friends are all here, generations and generations they work hard to be where they at today. Little or a lot, I believe the lives of the Americans will be effected in the next coming years, including a low life job person like myself. Liberals, you know, minimum wage job people like me have to pay taxes too you know, and my taxes will be going towards buying free healthcare for those who get free contraceptive, free welfair, free, free, and I hope I don't have to pay taxes to feed those who are NOT citizens of USA!

    In my opinion, Americans now are being feed little by little of socialism ideas into our brain, and many people are not even realized this. All they care is about their "individual" rights and benefits (mostly the young generation). 1st term of president Obama, I can understand, but people are putting president Obama back into office 2nd term, seem like the "society" "thinking" now in America has change alot. Seem like the younger generations now are getting more and more "very open" these days.

    Anyways, I pray for my minimum wage job, that if I still able to have this job for the next 4 years, LOL! With many people will be getting lay off and fighting for jobs, not much luck. Oh, by the way, nothing is for free you know, one day the middle class won't have anything left for Obama policies to milk, then those who waiting for free stuff will get nothing! Things don't fall down from the sky, you work hard to earn it, that is what true fairness is about.

    Anyways, Liberals are winner for this presidency, and we are the looser, well let me tell you. I don't even have to think twice, with a heartbeat if I can choose again, I will voted for Romney again, eventhough I know the outcome that he will lost, I still voted for Romney. I don't bow down to Socialist ideas, period!!

    The race was a tie nationally just few days before Hurricane Sandy hit and without Sandy, it could have gone either way depending on Ohio voters but Romney lost his edge in most swing states such as Florida and Virginia once Obama presented himself as a capable commander-in-chief in dealing with the natural disaster and voters rallied behind him and Obama was 3% ahead of Romney on Election Day thanks to Sandy and 2% of voters abandoned Romney in a matter of few days and Obama emerged as a winner.

    Would you categorise that as , pig headedness , or just plain , stupidity ?
    Do you apply the same principle to crossing a busy road ?
    And even though you have lost a leg and have permanent back trouble , do you ascribe it to , " rotten luck".
