why not? I'm genuinely interested, not trying to start shite.
Obama has and will be a genuinely harmful President.
He's been a ball and chain on business. He's set in place the ruin of American medicine. Could go on and on.
In the face of that BS, the GOP forwarded its weakest slate of Candidates perhaps ever.
Out of his horrible field, Romney was the only candidate with any chance. He knew that. His campaign knew that. As unbelievable as it sounds, he and his campaign basically approached the election as an inevitable win. Very much like Dewey vs Truman.
Even in the 1st week of September trailing 7-9pts, they felt the election was in the bag. The Romney strategy was to tread water until the debates. Just not to make mistakes. Again the campaign was very cocky about Romney winning those Debates. When he crushed Obama in the first one, they lightened up.
By the 3rd debate they were back in the Dewey we've-got-this-in-the-bag mode. They decided to use an untried "high-tech" GOTV software program figuring it would push their electoral result from ~282 to >310. Then came Sandy. Then came the GOTV software crash early on election day.
The Romney group was so cocky, so sure of themselves that they never even considered a GOTV back up. When their software crashed, they left 30,000 GOP election day workers completely stranded. Probably cost 2%, +7-10 Congressional seats, and perhaps the election. Someone like that does not deserve a second chance.
I'm going to assume you are a republican or a conservative when I ask you, why not?
As for the assumptions, no to the former, fiscal to the latter.
