  •  I was JUST gonna post about that (24+ / 0-)

    I'm getting a little tired of all the focus on Mitt being such a turd. Or that had they nominated Huntsman we would've been in trouble.

    Or that Mitt's "47%" line gave us the election.

    The fact is, Obama as a person and candidate is about as good as it gets. He is a cool cat, fun, good looking, genuinely, thoroughly decent, intelligent, with NO personal scandal whatsoever.

    I didn't love all the compromises in the first term, but Obama is still an absolute gem of a human being.

    THAT'S why we won.

      Was listening to Ed today on the radio, and he kept saying I don't want to talk about what Mitt did wrong, I want to talk about what the president did right.

      And yeah, Mitt was a lousy candidate, but hey, he was the cream of the crop from what the GOP put forward for their bench, with the exception of Huntsman, who might as well have been invisible for all the credibility his party gave him.

      In the end, Americans chose the decent, authentic man, despite whatever mistakes they think he's made.  And in addition to that good news, polls STILL show the majority of Americans understand GWB set the stage Obama had to act on.
