Why Did Romney Lose

Why Did Romney Lose
Please Rate This Article

Here we are post-election scratching our heads and wondering what went wrong. Did obama win, or did romney lose? Obama won the election, but did romney help obama win the election?

The truth is, he should have never made it past the primaries. When the republican party elected romney as their candidate, the election was lost.

The more people learned about romney, the less they liked him.

Romney has too much baggage.

1 – The way romney made his money. There is nothing wrong with making money, it was “how” romney made his money that working class people disagree with.

Romney did not create anything. His investment firms bought, striped and then resold. That is not what made America great.

You not know what made America great? We built stuff. People like Henry Ford, people that created a product that people wanted.

What jobs did romney create, what factories did he have built? All I heard about was him and his investment firms sending jobs to china.

2 – Taxes. Working class people pay their fair share of taxes, and we expect our leaders to pay their fair share of taxes as well.

Exploiting tax loopholes with offshore banking accounts is not cool. That kind of behavior looks like romney was trying to hide something.

Why didn’t romney release his tax history? Was he trying to hide something?

3 – NRA rating / gun control. Romney does not have a clear record on gun regulation. In 2004 romney signed an assault-weapons ban.

Then he turns around and says he supports the right to own firearms.

This back-and-forth behavior does not go over well with gun owners. You can not sign an assault rifle ban, then turn around and say you support gun ownership.

If you want to win over gun owners, you have to make your stance very clear.

4 – No new ideas. What new ideas did romney bring to the table? Repeal the income tax? Stop free trade? Bring our factories back from china?

How was romney any different then obama, the bushs or clinton?

The working class knows how to fix the nation, and that is to stop free trade and bring our factories back from china.  But none of the people running for office will tell the people what they want to hear.
