OK not in the those actual words. :wink:

Thompson lays out his reasons for the Romney loss and they boil down to four points which convey the following:

Wall Street rich guys who bury their primary opponents through the use of their wealth advantage in a wave of negative ads, who cannot articulate a convincing defense of free enterprise capitalism due to their own limitations as communicators, and who can't inspire folks into believing that their leadership is going to change their lives for the better in any meaningful way - are not sympathetic or believable and therefore lose.

Who would have thunk it? scratch

In the process Fred makes a compelling case for why Huckabee was far better positioned to close the two point gap and overtake Obama in 2012. And while we are at it - 2008. Of course Fred will admit that as soon as he admits that his role in South Carolina was as a spoiler. Never.

Exerts:

Quote:
“Being a businessman worked against him.” It seemed to me that, although Romney was the kind of guy you’d want to “fix” the economy, Obama persuaded a lot of people that Mitt was also the kind of guy who caused the problem in the first place: the Wall Street fat cat. And Romney never properly explained how turning a private business around improved our national economy.

...snip...

“Role of money.” Here I was thinking that Mitt didn’t have the money to defend himself early on when Team Obama was ruthlessly attacking him. Ironically, it was the tremendous money advantage Romney had in the primary that allowed him to decimate his opponents, which is also the reason that fewer people felt sorry for Romney when the shoe was on the other foot.

Come on. Fred Thompson gave it everything he had back in 2008, campaigning very vigorously between his naps. And the fact that he dropped out right after McCain bagged the nomination was a complete coincidence. Fred decided he'd serve the country much better by making all those Reverse Mortgage ads that prey on vulnerable seniors.

Sorry. Still bitter.

Well God has used bigger jackasses to deliver His Will so I guess we should try to move on. In hindsight Huck would have very well been beaten in 2008 and Christian conservatism would of then been shoved even further toward the back of the bus than we already are (if not under it).

I think Huck would have beaten Obama back in 2008. Totally believe he would have. And he would have repaired some of the damage between the GOP and minorities and non-rich people.
