    Why Romney Lost

    Just some of the reasons:

    1. Mormonism is a Fringe Religion

    2. VP Pick in Paul Ryan Was Weak

    3. Women - Out Of Stupidity They Voted For Obama Because He Is Popular, Not Because He's the Best President (This is Why Women Should Not Be Allowed To Vote)

    4. Romney Perceived As Anti-Immigrant, and Therefore Got No Latino-Vote

    5. Big Turn-Out By Food Stamp Constituency

    Feel Free To Add Reasons

    • “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years."

      Alexis de Tocqueville (early 19th century author of Democracy in America):

    • 1. All religions are garbage

      2. They didn't use Ryan to his best ability

      3. Get out from your mom's basement, and maybe you can get a girlfriend for once.

      5. You mean big turn out from Wall Street types who love the market - they loved doubling their money in 4 years.

    • Because Americans are uneducated idiots that have no clue where Greece is on a map (much less the economic consequences of unchecked power and socialism). Add in some reverse racism (Obama's "revenge" comment), and you have the perfect storm. The United States is headed to the same trash bin of history as the Soviet Union. "F" the United States. I hate this place and what is has become. The national anthem now makes me want to puke.

    • Romney lost because DECENT republicans chose to STAY HOME for fear of being associated with NUTJOB RIGHTWING EXTREMIST that run the party lately.


    • I wouldn't be shocked if they stole the election. Anecdotal evidence all day long in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida of HUGE turnout in Republican areas, yet he loses these states handily.

      Romney gets fewer votes than McCain did in 2008? Are you kidding me?!

    • Because Stupid Voters outnumber Smart Voters

      Because Stupid Voters think Obama can relate to them, instead of worrying about whether he can run the Executive Branch of the most powerful country in the history of the world

      Because Stupid Voters think Mitt Romney was gonna prevent them from getting a free phone, free contraception, or free abortions

      Because Stupid Voters have no idea how Obama's lack of fiscal leadership allow/encourage Congress and America as a whole to borrow /spend itself into debt slavery

      Because Stupid Voters think gas prices doubling in 4 years is because the oil companies are just trying to screw us, not because of willy-nilly money-printing allowed/encouraged by our own Treasry Secretary (who reports to the President), the one official responsible for the stability of our currency.

      Because Stupid Voter thinks Romney supporters are all racist, even though the Obama campaign was driven by dividing voters into groups (Latinos, blacks, women) and pitting those groups against the rich, white guy, to get "revenge" (his word, not mine).

      Because Stupid Voter doesnt know what/where/who Benghazi is.

      Becasue Stupid Voter gets one vote, just like everyone else does.

    • Main reasons: 1) Obama and the Dems are for the middle class and strong on women/ minority rights and 2) Obama's campaign strategy and execution was brilliant (as it was in beating the Clintons).

      1. Mormon President mus.lim president

      2. Paul Ryan Joe Biden

      3. Barack Hussein Obama supports sha.ria law.

    • I love this quote I heard after the election (paraphrased):

      "Women who voted for Obama unknowingly traded contraceptives for burqas"

      Pretty well sums it up..

      I disagree with your comment on women. Republicans can remain pro-life but they need to abandon efforts to repeal Roe v. Wade. They should not even consider abortion a platform issue at this stage. Married white women are more reliable than white men when it comes to voting republican.

      Single white women are the ones we need to reach out to. Abortion is part of that.
