  •  I Disagree. Romney helped beat himself. (2+ / 0-)

    Don't downplay the impact of Romney's personal style of campaigning, a lofty you're-challenging-me? approach to EVERYone who did not reflexively accept his paradigms.

    Don't miss Mitt's fully intentional - and documented! - statements, such as "Corporations are people", and the 47% debacle, and self-deportation, and the FEMA funding issue ... And his smirkily anti-factual screwup in Debate #2 about when Obama first linked Benghazi to terrorism.

    And his repeatedly inept descriptions - necessarily so - of his non-plan for tax reform.

    Yes, President Obama got more votes and benefitted from a wonderful intellect, the right positions (mostly) for Real People and a formidable campaign staff.

    But Mitt Romney made a very large number of prominent unforced errors.

    FORWARD to 2014: Win back the House. Build up the Senate.
