In an earlier article on this website, it was noted that Romney was the “designated loser” for the 2012 election. Romney was supposed to be the big “palooka”. In the boxing world, a “palooka” is a washed-up, punch-drunk boxer past his prime, who is put up against a rising young fighter in order to give “the Kid” an easy win and make him look good.
A recent news article reports “Mitt Romney didn’t want to be president, anyway. That’s what Tagg Romney, Mitt’s oldest son, told the Boston Globe for its big post-mortem on his father’s failed presidential bid published on Sunday. ‘He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,’ Tagg Romney told the paper. ‘He had no desire to … run. If he could have found someone else to take his place … he would have been ecstatic to step aside.’”
Unfortunately, Romney wasn’t willing to step aside so that Ron Paul could run. Romney was a System candidate, and the System is set up so that candidates, who respect the Constitution or who oppose the slavish subservience to Israel, don’t get to be the Republican presidential candidate.
Romney reportedly had a billion dollars for advertising, but ran few if any national ads. He could have attacked:
1).Obama adding six trillion to the National Debt
2).The US credit rating being lowered twice under Obama
3).The Fast and Furious Scandal and Obama’s failure to fire Eric Holder.
4).The addition of 17 million people to the food stamp program and
5).The Benghazi Scandal where Obama let four Americans die.
Romney demonstrated that he could mop the floor with Obama in a debate if he tried as happened in the first debate, but then Romney eased up after he had Obama on the ropes.
One more strong debate performance would have put Obama behind by too many votes for the Democrats to steal, but Romney went back into wimp mode and didn’t try to challenge or confront Obama even though that had worked spectacularly well in the first debate.
When your opponent has a horrendous record on the economy and you’ve got one billion dollars in campaign donations, you should hammer away at your opponent’s bad record, and you should be running lots of national ads since you’ve got a consistent message that you want to tell the whole country.
My impression of the 2012 election is that the election was stolen from Romney. Even though Romney ran a mostly lackluster campaign except for the first debate, public opinion was that Obama did a terrible job and most Americans wanted to vote him out hoping this would help the economy have a real recovery, and not just more National Debt.
The vote-stealing left-wing organization ACORN was supposedly disbanded after a major scandal in 2009. Unfortunately, a news article notes “The Obama Administration has given a former director at the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) nearly half a billion dollars.” You can steal a lot of votes with half a billion dollars.
A recent poll notes that 49 percent of Republicans think the 2012 election was stolen from Romney.
Not only was the 2012 election likely stolen, Republicans were being sabotaged with a System candidate, who didn’t even want to win!!
