Yes, Romney was the problem

The fact is liberal Republicans do not win presidential races.  The obvious reason for this is that RINOs do not offer much of a contrast to a Democrat, or at least a contrast so weak it does not motivate voters to support them.   You would think we would have learned this lesson from the McCain and Dole debacles.   To make things worse, Romney even agreed with Obama on numerous occasions during the debates, missing great opportunities to instead attack the president.  With the economy collapsing all around us, voters were simply not looking for Obama-light.

Moreover, Romney’s strategy of looking presidential but saying nothing controversial was an asinine strategy.  All one has to do is watch the old Reagan/Carter debates to see how Reagan strived to show contrast with Carter at every opportunity.  While Reagan was always civil in the way he stated things, he tore Carter’s head off every chance he got.

The list of explosive issues ignored by Romney goes far beyond those that Romney himself was weak on.  Take, for example, the Fast and Furious and Benghazi scandals, both of which involved the deaths of Americans and a subsequent cover-up by this administration.  The latter scandal, especially, was ripe for Romney to exploit, given the new evidence that Obama refused to assist Americans under attack and then lied to the American public about the reason for the attack.  This is an impeachable offense but Romney chose to ignore this issue altogether.
