Mitt Romney Defeat: 4 Reasons
Why Republicans Lost

Investor's Business Daily, by David Hogberg

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 11/7/2012 2:11:09 PM

First, congratulations to President Obama on his win. He ran a tough campaign and he has overseen arguably the best turnout operation a presidential race has ever seen. That said, this was a presidential election that the GOP should have won. Lousy job numbers, unpopular domestic policies, a faltering foreign policy — those are usually the things that enable challengers to unseat incumbents. Here are some reasons that Romney didn't prevail: 1. RomneyCare = ObamaCare. In 2006 Mitt Romney probably didn't know that the health care reform he signed as governor would serve as a model for national health care reform,

Didn't even read the article. Don't need too. Here is the real 4 reasons, that even the usual "reliable" journalists refuse to admit.

1. The media.
2. Over 50% of America want free "stuff", and whoever can give it to them gets the vote.
3. Squishy RINOs
4. The media.

So what does the remaining portion of productive America "do" about the ILLEGAL Immigration problem, someone, anyone tell me please!

The hispaniricans won't vote for those who oppose it OBVIOUSLY based on %'s who voted RAt.

What do we few remaining do with the unproductive slug/gimme sector who won't vote non-RAT if they have to get up and go to a J O B?

One more time - many voters are kardashian voters - they reward fame and non talent and non achievement - by voting for the candidate who has that panache.

Watch one episode of the repo game, where a delinquent car owner can win his or her car, fully paid off, by answering three trivia questions out of five, correctly. too many of those people, regardless of race, don't know who the vp is, where paris is, or don't know the body of water bordering the west coast of california, oregon, washington.
And Zero found a way to get those people to vote.

In 2004 Bush won New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado and Florida. Bush made direct appeals to Hispanic voters in his Tex-Mex Spanish. Romney mostly used surrogates. The personal touch is always better.

There are so many people here complaining about illegal immigrants.

OK, why aren't you complaining about the buisnesses that hire them? Like chicken and steak, who do you think works in the slaughterhouses?

Like your lawn mowed, have you asked the person driving the lawn mower a question?

You won't go after the businesses because they support the GOP.

You want veggies, trying going to California and pick them. Try it for a few days.

The GOP needs a rock star. Calling Mr. Rubio.

#2 you are right about the media. No matter what excuse/reason we list as to why Romney didn't win, the reality is that all his positives were ignored and all Obama's negatives ignored by the media.

With the old guard media bleeding financially, I'd like to see Romney/Bain Capital get their "revenge" by completing a hostile takeover of one or more of CBS/NBC/ABC/CNN. Then when he owns it, fire everyone and bring in the best of the conservative new media.

The brain dead voters out there will tune in oblivious to the switch and will start hearing the other side of the news. Maybe this way we reach another 10-15% of the brain dead.

Remember it was Republican business interests looking for an unlimited supply of cheap labor that allowed mass uncontrolled illegal immigration to get up a head of steam in the USDA in the first place.

If the wimpy Republicans now cave, and go along with another liberal Democrat amnesty that would certainly legalize up to 20 million illegal aliens in the near future and put them on "a path to citizenship" the Republicans would be committing long-term political suicide.

"A path to citizenship" is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually granting the legalized aliens US voting rights. The vast majority of illegal aliens are poor, low wage earners, with limited educations, who have large families, and when you get to the bottom line have little or no tax liability and who are thus natural liberal Democrat voters.

The liberal Democrats consider just about all illegal aliens to be potential liberal Democrat voters, that's why the liberal Democrats always oppose and sabotage any seemingly effective immigration law enforcement measures.

Even if only about 50% of the legalized aliens ever eventually register to vote, and then actually vote, the liberal Democrats know those people would constitute millions of new voters for them, with which they could permanently alter the political balance of the USA to the point where it would be impossible for the Republicans to ever again win national elections.

For what it's worth, here's two additional reasons.

1) Ron Paul supporters (libertarians) all collectively decided to 'sit this election out' and a lot of them didn't vote at all. My son was one of these.

2) There were a lot of evangelical Christian voters who, at the end, could not bring themselves to vote for a Mormon. My daughter was one of these.

I do not fit into either of these two categories. My wife and I both financially supported and voted for Romney.

I'm a rabid Republican/conservative; but, I have to admit, both of our votes were more of an anti-Obama vote than a pro-Romney vote.

Now, all of the reasons mentioned in the article are all valid and played a huge part in Romney's defeat. But, I believe my two reasons were partly responsible for Romney not getting as many votes as McCain did in the last election.

He didn't get enough votes. The Party needs to figure out how to bring some of the 47% into the tent ... starting now.
I agree with the article - lackluster candidate that did not fight hard enough. He didn't get the women to vote for him because he allowed BHO to define him.

Nigerian child bride kills man

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano. The teenager told police she bought rat poison at a village market and used it to prepare a dish of rice. "The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Last week, the online dating site OkCupid switched up its homepage for Mozilla Firefox users. Upon opening the site, a message appeared encouraging members to curb their use of Firefox because the company´s new CEO, Brendan Eich, allegedly opposes equality for gay couples—specifically, he donated $1000 to the campaign for the anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008. "We´ve devoted the last ten years to bringing people—all people—together," the message read. "If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8% of the relationships we´ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal." The company´s action went viral, and within

Intolerance: The left hounded a CEO from his job over a 2008 donation in favor of a California measure opposing gay marriage. So much for free speech and job performance.

Is British TV chef Nigella Lawson’s archenemy ex-husband Charles Saatchi behind the move to deny her entry to the US? The powerful businessman has a family connection to the Obama campaign and the current US Ambassador in London, Matthew Barzun. Barzun was appointed as US Ambassador by President Obama last year. The former CNET exec is a longtime activist in the Democratic party, and was a prominent fund-raiser for the 2008 Obama campaign, organizing mass events. Saatchi’s nephew, Edward Saatchi, also worked on the 2008 Obama campaign as a manager and founded NationalField, a social network to allow campaign staff to share information.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
