President Obama is a failure as a president, and Gov. Romney is a failure as a candidate.
When he took office, Obama told the press that if he couldn't cure the economic mess he inherited from President George W. Bush in four years, he wouldn't deserve a second term. I guess he didn't anticipate making the mess worse.
By disenfranchising Ron Paul supporters, Mitt Romney won the primary but lost the election.
New analysis reveals that in no less than five states, Romney’s margin of loss to President Obama in the general election was less than the number of votes received by Ron Paul in that state’s primary.
A critical issue to Americans has been Romney’s recent visit to Israel where he met behind closed doors with diamond merchants tied to 70% of the world’s illegal “blood diamond” trade and is said to have accepted millions in illegal campaign donations. Romney met secretly with cash bearing delegations from Russia, London’s banking community and other groups, some American citizens but most not, all violations of American law.
