Mitt was indeed a flawed candidate, but I'm still depressed by the results of the election. Regardless of your political leanings, Mr. Obama has proven to be a terrible leader. The only way he gets things done is by fiat power, he labels anyone that opposes his ideas as narrow minded and inflexible, and fails to live up to his campaign promises ("most transparent government", anyone?). The really frustrating thing is that we knew that going into this last election, or at least we should have known it.

I know, the gripes I listed above about Mr. Obama are par for the course in politics. And maybe Romney would have been similar in many respects. But come on, we knew that Obama was terrible, and at least Mitt showed he could be better in some things.

Romney lost because he over-estimated the intelligence of the average American.

Sounds like a great and revealing project dealing with one of the important men of our time.

I can hardly wait for the debut of a similar film project on his opponent who won the election, so we can then fully compare and contrast the two.

We really do deserve to see politicians as they really are, not as they pretend to be, or as they are portrayed by agenda driven cronies and media aligned with or against them.

It is becoming obvious that Mitt was misrepresented to us prior to the election, but what do we really know about the other guy?

Seriously, we've got to keep our relationship with this guy in perspective. This isn't healthy.


Mitt would probably have been a lot better than the alternative man that we got, and neither received the vote of the majority of the nation. Neither had sufficiently enthusiastic support amongst the people of either "popular" party. I supported another man for the Republican nomination - "he whose name cannot be mentioned" in the GOP.

We need a better candidate, middle class and constitutionalist preferably, and perhaps a third party to represent all us disfranchised voters out here.

I'm sorry for our country that Mitt is not our president, but I'm happy for his family.

I also have to point out that the President of the United States is part of a system. And in many places in this vast and complex system things go wrong and things go right. He is not all powerful - he has to answer and work in the system. So, let's just stop talking about him like he is the sole cause of failure or success or in terms of a favorite sports team or a rival team. He is a man with an important job and has influence. He does not act alone…come on, he can't even speak for himself…he represents a political party, he has to please people in this country, leaders in another. I could go on, but I won't. I think I've made my point.
