    Maybe I shouldn't have been so amazed - given the democraphics.

    I just didnt think that Obama could gain a second term given the numbers of the crappy economy under 4 years on his watch.

    Romney should have gone after him on Libya.

    Let up after his win in the first debate and sort of coasted - to defeat.

    It really is tough to unseat an incumbant for a second term - last incumbant to lose re-election was George HW Bush -and before that Jimmy Carter.

    Still don't understand how a president like George HW Bush - with historic high job -performance ratings after the Gulf War in 1991 - could lose to I Didnt Inhale Draft Dodger in 1992.

    Must have been more than the "Read My Lips, No New Taxes" gaffe.

    It is more about trends of the economy than where are we now. Unemployment was trending downward, stock market was booming, GDP had stabilized. The economy was stagnant but not the "are you worse off than you were four years ago" the Republicans were trying to sell

    Romney should have gone after him on Libya.


    Romney did go after him on Libya and got his head handed to him both times

    Let up after his win in the first debate and sort of coasted - to defeat.


    Romney moved abruptly to the center in the first debate and caught Obama off guard. Romney had nowhere else to go after that

    It really is tough to unseat an incumbant for a second term - last incumbant to lose re-election was George HW Bush -and before that Jimmy Carter

    Your only accurate statement
