Holy cow! Really? Mitt Romney did nothing for the last 7 years but run for President. He gave up nothing. The tax returns he released showed he made $20 million a year while he ran for President.
He called "terrorism" whatever polling data told him potential voters wanted to hear.
He slandered half the population of the country and pandered to bigots, religious extremists and billionaires.
The election was clear and demonstrative. President Obama won decisively and the American people have spoken. Romney is a man with no core values beyond the belief that he should have been elected President. His views on virtually every subject changed with the prevailing political winds. After the election he made comments that were demeaning to most of the electorate. I should note that the President won both the popular and electoral vote, convincingly. He won all but one of the so-called swing states, including Florida, where the Republican Party did everything in its power to suppress turnout among voters who were likely to vote for the President.
Now the Republicans are talking about changing their messaging when they should be talking about their message. If they focus on the messaging, they are fated to be a smaller and smaller factor in American life. More than anyone, the Republicans should remember the Whig Party, from whence they came, and learn what it means to become marginalized. Of course as a liberal Democrat, I hope they keep on doing what they have been doing, so, never mind.
