  •  Romney DID Win On Message. Check the Math (0+ / 0-)

    Like Bill Clinton often says, it's arithmetic.

    47% voted for Obama simply because they're takers, Obama is black, etc. This 47% never took a hard look at the issues, or studied the candidates. They just automatically walked into the voting booth and chose Obama.

    That leaves 52% of the electorate. Of the 52% percent that actually DID look at the issues and study the candidates, 5% voted for Obama, and 47% voted for Romney. That is, of the people who actually THOUGHT about the election, Romney won the "thinking crowd" 9 to 1.

    Because no one who voted for Romney did so because they didn't like having a black president. Oh no -- the Romney crowd is way too informed, unbiased, and worldly to ever vote their fears and prejudices. Everyone who voted for Romney did so on the issues, as opposed to the few informed voters who voted for Barack.

    Do I really need to add a snark tag to this? Hope not.
