Corrupt Media and “Hold Your Nose” Conservatives to Blame

Two big reasons I believe Barack Obama prevailed in 2012’s big election:

Obama won because the Liberal-leftist media cooperated almost unanimously in the Obama Chicago-style smear and hate campaign. Never has a president won an election with such a horrible track record and nothing new to offer but de facto Marxist/Socialist/Radical-Leftist ideas – which have never worked.

They will not work during the coming four years either as Obama takes us more and more in the direction of quasi-Communism. Unfortunately, most Americans today don’t even know what Communism is.  Americans are being duped just like the people of other Communist  nations were duped before they wised up. 

Furthermore, I hate to say it, but if you go back to the Republican primaries – I told most
of the radical conservatives that Romney could not be elected with “hold your nose ” support.
 
Guys like Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and other radical conservatives – as well as Evangelical opponents to Mormonism – poisoned the campaign early on. The Democrats never have this problem. They get behind their candidate and focus on winning.
 
Never in the history of the Republican Party have we had a finer, more attractive, better qualified candidate to run the largest enterprise in the history of the world than Mitt Romney. Now we must settle for a community organizer who never even ran a lemonade stand.
 
If you want to know why Republicans lost this election, simply look no further than the “hold your nose”, extreme conservatives for their over allegiance to extremism. How long did they cling to Newt Gingrich, or Ron Paul, or Rick Santorum – when we had the most qualified,  Presidential candidate since World War II?
 
Of course, the thickheaded Conservatives will tell us if we were more conservative we would’ve won. Nonsense. It’s time for these antiquated thinkers to recognize that rule number one is to get elected. The electorate has become less conservative. The Dems understand this. “Hold your nose” Republicans do not.
