Romney wasn't lying

...he apparently really did have one speech. He was so incredibly confident that he was going to win, that not just losing, but losing decisively "shellshocked" him.

You'd hope that regardless of what the right-wing voters tell themselves or ignore, that a national campaign would know the facts. It probably would not have made a difference, but by not knowing they were behind, they wasted time trying to expand the map in un-winnable states to create a more decisive victory and a mandate, thinking they were solid in the states they needed for 270.

I fall in the millennial category and yep we do love wine.

He wasn't forced to go down any path. He could have stood his ground and showed what he was made up, instead he pandered and it bit him in his ass in the general election.

That's entirely possible. The thing is, it shouldn't matter what any president personally thinks of it. It's a 1) a social issue which is 2) a state issue.
People just don't understand federalism.

Also abortion. The younger generation see it as a done deal. They have not known a world without legal abortions. They don't get it why we should dictate to others.

Without pandering, he isn't in the general election. The only way a moderate can get onto a real ticket is by pandering. And me being a moderate, that ****ing sucks and it makes the whole democratic process completely stupid.

Looks like we dodged a bullet as far as fiscal responsibility.

The next time you have the misfortune of hearing a Wall Street titan or other one-percenter whine about how their trickle-down contributions are not appreciated by the masses remember this tidbit, courtesy of Garrett Haake at NBC:
From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

Well, its what makes our process stupid. There's no law requiring two major parties and especially, the current primary system for choosing the candidates.

It is naive to believe that there is any systematic way for any third party to actually compete in an election. It might as well be law.

In your opinion. If anything, it shows the need for federalism and de-centralized govt even more, since one central govt can't decide everything for everyone. Makes a presidential elections less important too.

It shows that the Republican nomination is still heavily influenced by the religious right. They aren't going to win primary elections but they will influence the outcome. And frankly, as the Republican party gets more progressive, I could see the problem getting worse because there seem to be fiscal conservatives who don't identify with either established party.
