    ... and I'm asking here, that, when it's all over and we're all doing the post mortems that the failure to properly use the allegedly great bio vid they had at the convention and the decision to hand that time off to Crazy Clint will be tagged as the scar that wouldn't heal?

    Campaigns sometimes turn on a single decision. This we know.

    Read my lips.

    'Copters to Tehran.

    Wear this helmet, ride in tank.

    Sarah Palin.

    What would have happened if America had seen that 15 minutes of hokum and slickery that night instead of the chair?

      it was over in early August, when Team Romney let Democrats define him as a dick.

      He couldn't talk about his religion, and he couldn't talk about his record as Mass. guv. All he had left were Bain and the Olympics, and we took Bain off the table.

      And really, running for president with the Olympics as your singular accomplishment is pretty pathetic.

      Once people decided they didn't like him, all was over. The RNC was their last chance to change around that narrative and make Mittens likable, yet we were treated to speaker after speaker doing their best to not say the words "Mitt Romney".

      Romney needed people to embrace him. Instead, everyone was busy positioning themselves for the inevitable 2016 GOP primary.

        Campaigns have turned on less and I had heard that the vid was really well done. I suppose they could have, at that late hour and in the desperation you describe, commenced to praying that the president yakked up some monumental public shoe puke that would turn it around.

        Kind of a Hail Maroni pass ... like tonight's festivities.
