Romney Lost for the following simple reasons: 1. He had more waffles than an Ihop and Waffle house. He flipped which ever way the wind was blowing at that moment. For example, I will repeal Obama Care flipped to.... I will keep Obama car and reform it. FEMA was pass the responsibility onto the states and leave the Federal Government out of it to..... We need FEMA when Sandy wreaked half the East Coast. 2. Women make up 52% of the population. You can not expect to tell women they should revert to a 1920's attitude and then tell them what to do with their bodies and then expect to win at least 80% of the 52% of the population. 3. Insulting the 47% as he put it as being "lazy". Between insulting 52% of the population and then including another total of 47%, gives you about 65% of the population that wants nothing to do with you. 4. One candidate wants to lower his own taxes, the other want to raise his own. 5. Throw everything to the states. Romney wants to cancel everything and throw it to the states. It is like throwing all the programs over an 8ft cinderblock wall and hoping the states catch it. Not going to happen. Some things are more efficient in the hands of the federal government. For example, get Colorado FEMA to give up thier money to help Florida in time of need. 6. Taxes, the government never gets rid of a tax. So passing responsibility on t the states, will cause the states to raise taxes and the federal government will keep the extra revenue, thereby increasing burden again on middle class. 7. His tax policies do not add up. You can not spend more, lower taxes and expect to have a smaller deficit. No possible. 8. People do not want a Bush era again, where you spend, spend, spend on programs and offer more tax breaks.
