Instead of beating on Mitt Romney, we should thank him for a valiant campaign in which he had to contend not only with an incumbent president but also a cheer leading mainstream media. His debate performances were good but not perfect. It is always possible to nit pick. His campaign speeches in the last three weeks of the campaign were good to excellent, and he proved a tireless campaigner. It is not good form or a good incentive system to throw a losing candidate to the wolves, as many are doing.
We would be in good hands had he been elected. What a shame.
It is my layman’s impression that Romney would be president elect without Hurricane Sandy, without Candy Crawley, and without the overheard 47 percent remark. There is no telling how many equivalents to the 47 percent remark that the press did not report for Obama.
It is sheer craziness that the press is already watching every move of possible 2016 Republican candidates. Give it a rest, please.
