    That's a very interesting article about the Romney campaign. That's the kind of article you wouldn't hear about in the regular media. I think its telling that he awarded all the big contracts to his friends and big campaign donors.

    If there was one single thing that iced him, it was when he said forty-seven percent.

    The reason Romney lost is because we have so many people who want to get free stuff. It saddens me when youths plan for life is to "do it just right to draw off welfare" and do the minimal amount to get their. Trust me, McDonalds and Walmart are always hiring. Jobs can be found if one truly wants to work

    Well a lot of Romney voters want to indirectly benefit from government services while paying a pittance for 'em.

    Also, TIL that McDonalds and Walmart have several million vacancies. Well paid vacancies, I am sure.

    Simon I am sorry, I meant to say You Are Correct:

    The mindset has not changed. The republican mindset jas been and still for "the country club" .. Those days are over and done. Yes the dems may have increased. Some of which may have been born into and raised "republican" That is the "need to change" I am speaking of. Not one issue that were addraddressed this election , did the rspublicans straightfordly provide a "today's world solution".

    Their holding onto oldworld "mindset" costed them two presidential terms (and if they throw another trumpstunt and back up his "malarky", it simply makes the party look bad and puts a bad taste on voters mouths.

    The party need to "prove" to me that they have lowly me interests as their "primsary concern"... Allowing Rick Perry in there, only pushed me awag another 8years.

    I honestly think though if Romney would of put all ad money he raised straight into our trillions of debt, he easily would have one. That would make everyone see he wants to make a difference. And even if Obama did it afterwords, he would just be coppying Romney. (I should be a campaign leader)

    Kennedy, who was just as wealthy, donated his presidential salary. Do you suppose Romney would?

    Would Romney do what? Ha! (and in response to #8....looks to me thst ROMNEY wanted" free stuff"....begging for $5). His message to AMERCIA was "if you get to be as rich as I, you are exempt from "taxes" and you beg others to fund your campaign". Perry on the other hand simply TOOK what he wanted from the state! Cut all sorts of programs , blew it all then blamed it on "a sleep disorder"....yup #8 that message goes the same for republicans.

    Kennedy was for the nation of people. Cant say that for romney or the csndidates the republicans had this election.

    The problem with #8 statement is that R's think everything is a welfare case just because you want to help out your neighbor. I wonder what they do ehen they are in need? Surely all republicans aren rich like Rom.... I betcha most seniors in nursinghomes have rpublican children...because they feel caring for their aged parents at home is a welfare situation.....giving them something for free , and making their last days be of unfamiliar surroumdings.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think at the end of the day that Obama raised more money than Romney did.

    I think that all the damn fundraising should have gone to the national debt instead of assaulting our ears with nasty commercials. (both sides)

    I really think people might pay attention once or twice, then ignore the ad. That doesn't give any return for the money spent. Some of these ad agencies are deluding themselves.

    Some of the PACS were really nasty. And after the comment about the 47% and the apology to supporters about not being able to deal with the opposition's handouts to special groups put paid to any credibility about being for the people in general.

    No one ever polled on how many hit the MUTE button?

    Maybe "official" contributions, but highly doubtful if you include the big Super PAC money.

    Maybe. Can you really hold Romney responsible for that though?

    Edit: Just looked it up just for grins and giggles. The Super PACs definitely spent way more on anti-Obama ads than they did on anti-Romney ads. The official Obama campaign out spent Romney by about $100 mil though.

    There should really just be very tight limits on advertising. Likewise, advertising should be informative, if it is on TV or Radio. If there is a scandal the press can publish it themselves as they should, be grand.

    Only problem with that is the 1st amendment. Sadly it's not illegal to call your opponent a filthy lying scuzzbucket even if you are one yourself.
