Why Romney Lost - Karl Rove Was Exactly Right
It all comes down to "likeability", that's what voters will vote for EVERY TIME in every presidential election. That's why Rove hung onto the coattails of Bush II (though he was a likeable goofy ex frat boy type you can have a beer with). Here's every election since Kennedy. Republicans need to smarten up.

Obama vs. Romney - Romney's a robot CEO type. Who in America likes their CEO? Nobody.
Obama vs McCain - Seriously, befuddled old McCain
Bush vs Kerry - Damn droning on Kerry about God knows what putting everyone to sleep?
Bush vs Gore - Airhead Gore with his head in the clouds?
Clinton vs Dole - Dear God, old as Dole, who seems like the crankity old man yelliing at you to get off his lawn?
Clinton vs Bush Sr. - Wimpy ass grandpa Bush
Bush vs Dukakis - Dukakis makes Bush Sr. seem charismatic. Enough said
Reagan vs Mondale - LOL Mondale
Reagan vs Carter - Beaten down pasty Carter, feel sorry for him
Carter vs Ford - Carter did seem like a likeable peanut farmer in 76
Nixon vs McGovern - Who the hell would vote for somebody who looks like their college professor of French Literature or some shit?
Nixon vs Humphrey - Humphrey, a listless pseudo-intellectual, would have put everyone to sleep
LBJ vs Goldwater - Evil uncaring robotic Goldwater

Guess we have the loveable loser Obama for 4 more years, to give him another shot, awwww we feel sorry for him. Sigh. Guess he can continue to give us more good Fantasy Football advice for 4 more years.

Romney lost because he's such an idiot he managed to lose the exchange with Obama over Benghazi.

He screwed up so bad he didn't even touch Benghazi again for the rest of the campaign.

Benghazi handed the election to Romney on a silver platter and he ended up making it a score for Obama. That's fucking pathetic.

Romney lost because of his immigration stance, also he wants to take away the free stuff that people have become dependent on.

Vote for Santa Claus or Scrooge? Not really a hard choice at all, and there are more and more dependent class people every day. The producers are getting outnumbered and that's the reality of it.

That and other issues were completely mishandled by Romney. He did not nearly engage in enough demonizing and negative campaigning like Obama. The flip side of the coin is also trying to make the other candidate less likeable than you. Republicans failed hard at that.

I disagree. I don't think Romney ever had any realistic chance of beating Obama. Except, that is, until he had the election handed to him by the Benghazi scandal.

But Romney couldn't even get his basic facts straight in the second debate and instead of slam dunking all over Obama's face he got embarrassed.

Romney's momentum completely stopped after the second debate. His Benghazi screwup and subsequently allowing the Benghazi issue to drop off the radar is 100% responsible for him losing the only chance he had to win.

For the amount of money spent to get Romney elected, you could have gotten a monkey elected. If your going to lie about everything at least lie about things people want to hear, and don't alienate every demographic there is. The campaign ads were sickening, people stopped answering the phone, and watched shows that didn't have ads at all. Also people were turned off by the idea that if you spend a billion dollars on a campaign you'll win, Ryan and Romney couldn't even win their home states.

It's true you are not going to be able to get the useless eaters to vote Republican, they will solidly vote Spendocrat everytime. And Republicans concede that vote. Still there are the wishy washy "independents", like suburban soccer moms, who vote for the more likeable, or less dis-likable candidate, and who determine the Presidency every time.

Again, has been happening since Kennedy. Republicans completely whiffed on that one.

Uhh...Wasn't it Karl 'I love Satan' ROVE that SHOVED Romney down our throats the ENTIRE primary.

You know, GIVING HIM ALL THE AIRTIME, never airing ONE bad thing about him, yet TRASHING all the other candidates and telling us how 'Electable' Romney was?

FOX was pathetic during the primaries.

Anyone that listens to what Karl 'I suck cock' Rove has to say should be hung from a tall building by their nutsack.

Ya all should grow up and think before you speak.
If you want the real reason Romney lost it is because he does not care about anyone but himself
If the Republican party wants to rebuild they are going to have to care for people or at least FAKE it good

I bet it would be nice to have $$$$

Certainly not. Do you think most voters even remotely realize the relationship between National Debt, inflation and their rising fuel and food prices? Pfft, Romney and the Republicans foolishly spent too much time trying to explain this to people, and assumed voters would understand.

Meanwhile Obama and the Democrats got it right, appealing to people's fears and emotions much more successfully with slogans and negative attacks.

Re: Why Romney Lost - Karl Rove Was Exactly Right
A very good analysis OP.

Appearance and charisma go a long way with voters. Obama has both. Romney? Nope, especially in the personality department though he has a pleasant-enough face.

An example: Sarah Palin - total airhead but attractive - every single old white Republican male (and younger rednecks) wanted to 'do her'. Still do actually.

'Your face is your fortune' - so true but you also need charisma...and you can't buy charisma. Works every time.

And this is why we didn't get Ron Paul as the Republican candidate.
