2012 Presidential Election, America, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney

Don’t Blame Romney [Ann Coulter]


By: Ann Coulter

(Shared at Red Pill Report because it is so worth reading)
Mitt Romney gives his gracious concession speech

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan’s record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with Republicans around the middle of the last decade. And yet in 2004, President George W. Bush beat John Kerry more handily than Obama edged past Romney this week.

Democratic candidate John Kerry won 8 million more votes than Al Gore did in 2000, and he still couldn’t win. All the Democrats’ money, media, Bush Derangement Syndrome and even a demoralized conservative base couldn’t trump the power of incumbency in 2004.

After supporting Mitt Romney in 2008, some of you may recall, I ran off with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie midway through Obama’s first term for precisely that reason: The near-impossibility of beating an incumbent president. Christie seemed like the kind of once-in-a-lifetime star who could pull a Reagan upset against an incumbent president.

But I was wrong. Romney was the perfect candidate, and he was the president this country needed right now. It’s less disheartening that a president who wrecked American health care, quadrupled gas prices, added $6 trillion to the national debt and gave us an 8 percent unemployment rate can squeak out re-election than that America will never have Romney as our president.

Indeed, Romney is one of the best presidential candidates the Republicans have ever fielded. Blaming the candidate may be fun, but it’s delusional and won’t help us avoid making the same mistakes in the future.

  1. Thank you Ann and thank you Red Pill. Romney should not be second guessed. He gave it everything he had….and then some. If only people had tried to see the real man before they demonized him to all of America. He would have been a saving grace to our nation and as he said in his final speech….Ann would have made a great first lady. Now we get to learn more lessons the hard way. Hopefully our nation will still be around for a 2016 election, but I have my doubts.

  2. ditto Sam.
    and i agree with this article. i wondered what those two were thinking to take such a stand on the abortion issue right now. i don’t agree with abortion of any kind, but to take that stand politically and in the public eye is not going to sit well with most people. that was poor form and it hurt the republican party.
    romney would have been a great president.

  3. It is cowardly the way many in the GOP are throwing Romney under the bus now that the election is over. Did they tell the Romney campaign before the election what they should be doing better? No, they got on board the Romney train and waited until after the election to jump off and point fingers at those still on board and at Romney himself.
