Why Romney is Losing

Mitt Romney is toast. First up we were told when he started spending on advertising it will come right…then that the polls are biased, then the liberal media…now we are told that he will clean Obama’s clock in the debates…I can’t imagine what the excuses will be when he doesn’t because frankly he needs to comprehensively smash Obama in the debates to even have a chance of getting close…and I can;t see that happening.

However none of that really will get him over the line. The real reasons why Mitt Romney is losing are clear for all to see:

The Clinton bounce was followed by the Romney fall, which now infects the Republican brand at all levels. The reverse-Rorschach of the Romney video is hurting Republicans across the board. Maybe the debates will change this. Maybe not.

Romney is losing because he now embodies an attitude of demeaning, derision and disrespect that poisons Republicans today in ways that Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp and William F. Buckley would never have accepted.

Opponents become enemies. Government itself becomes evil. Citizens become deadbeats. Patriots become dependents when they disagree with Republicans. Fact-checkers are ridiculed. Science becomes Satan.

Romney is losing because he pandered to the wrong people, and his party is paying the price. Mitt Romney in his video created the largest enemies list in the history of American politics. He is losing because he has convinced a majority of voters that they are on it.
