Can anyone tell me: why Mitt Romney?
Original post made by Ed Treller, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Sep 21, 2012
The republican candidate 4 years ago was beat by Barack Obama in a landslide, almost 200 electoral votes, 365 - 173.
With recent history in mind, why did the GOP pick the guy who lost so badly to John McCain, who lost so badly to Barack Obama?
Looking at Mr. Lawrence's recent thread, with 88 comments and 1200 views, no one can offer a reason why the GOP chose Mitt Romney. I heard lots of reasons not to choose Gov Romney in the primaries; was no one listening?
Real Clear Politics, which seemed to be highly recommended in the last political thread, predicts an Obama victory, 332-206, with the "toss-up" states all breaking to their composite polls. Web Link
Similar electoral numbers appear at the vaunted 538 blog, with them giving Gov. Romney only a 23% chance of winning. Web Link
Again: why did the GOP pick Mitt Romney?
