A point little talked about..Romney ran as the CEO who had the experience and skills to put this country back on track..yet he couldn't even run a campaign. If he completely misunderstood the American citizenry in the election, just what would that misunderstanding mean if he were President..we dodged a big bullett.

All I saw was 4 years of Flip-Flopping, yet another Middle Eastern war with Iran, WallStreet taking the Keys to the Kingdom, and the Mormons being blamed for all of it.

Agreed pragmatistferlife,
we dodged a big bullet.

The fact is that when you have more people getting a free ride in the wagon than pulling the wagon, the outcome was predictable. Romney was criticized for saying as much in his meeting with his supporters. But he was right. Romney would have expected more people to help pull and that was terrifying to those people who are enjoying their free ride in the wagon.

@JSB -- Yes, it is very bad when a president's policies positively affect the middle class and poor. The only people who should ever get tax breaks and "goodies" are those making the most money. You know, they are the job creators and all. Of course we should give them all the goodies they want.
