Wednesday Morning Quarterbacking

The inevitable "how did Romney and the Republicans lose" articles are being published, and there's lots of speculation about it. Here's what I think.

  • Romney blew off half the electorate as unimportant mooches.
  • Ryan wants to privatize Medicare and Social Security. These are unpopular views with people over the age of 65, many of whom are deeply dependent on those programs.
  • Romney's tax returns. Yep, I'd love to know what's in them.
  • Romney had no plan.
  • Aiken, Mourdock, and other Republicans pooh-poohing rape in various ways pissed off an awful lot of women.
  • Perhaps people are coming to realize that cutting taxes doesn't do much for the economy.
  • Yeah, pissing off a growing demographic such as Latinos isn't a good idea either.
  • Mitt Romney is a tough guy to get enthused about.
  • Urbanized liberals will continue being able to outvote rural conservatives. There are more of us.
I love that some analysts are saying the Republicans need to be even more conservative. Nope. Not gonna work.
