None of it makes any sense.
None of it makes any sense! Mitt Romney and his wife and his family are the essence of decency. He’s the essence of achievement. Mitt Romney’s life is a testament to what’s possible in this country. Mitt Romney is the nicest guy anybody would ever run into. Mitt Romney is charitable. He wouldn’t hurt a fly. He doesn’t hate. He’s not discriminatory in any way, shape, manner, or form.
And no such charges were ever leveled.
But what did Romney do? Romney presented a picture… This is very frightening stuff to me. He presented a picture of the traditional view, the traditional roots, the traditional way things work in this country. And part of his campaign… There was an assumption, I think, that that’s what most people were looking for and wanted a return to. Instead we’ve got the Mulligan presidency. We’re gonna give Obama a do-over!
They’re gonna give him a do-over so that he can do in the second term what we all hoped he would do in the first term. There’s nobody singing Obama’s praises in terms of achievement. There’s nobody singing his praises in terms of a good job done. They’re singing his praises as it relates to marketing, campaigning, strategizing, getting out the vote. All that matters. It clearly does.
This is not sour grapes on that. Campaigns matter. Lot of things were illustrated and confirmed last night. Campaigns do matter, strategy matters, all that stuff matters. But for many of us, the country’s at a point where it’s never been in our lifetimes economically. We figured we had one chance to stop this direction and reverse it, take it back to the traditional path of American greatness. It was rejected. That America is not desired. That America is not wanted.
It’s difficult to accept that.
It’s a challenge that we’ll have to meet in reclaiming it.
