|Romney can't win|
I remember a conversation I had about this time in the 2008 presidential election cycle in which I said John McCain would lose if he were chosen as the Republican nominee.
With that in mind, let me go on record now as saying that Mitt Romney will lose to President Barrack Obama if he becomes the Republican nominee this time around.
It isn't rocket science, so follow my chain of thought and maybe I can make a believer of you. I didn't really make much headway with those I was trying to convince in 2007, but I was right.
In 2007, I overheard two former coworkers arguing over who might be the next president of the Unites States. Without invitation, as loudmouths often do, I gave my opinion.
Back then, Hillary Clinton was poised to become the Democrats' choice for president, but Obama was pulling in strong from the rear. It didn't really matter —I interjected—because if the Republican went for McCain, there would be a donkey in the White House.
My coworkers—one a staunch Democrat, the other a tepid Republican—scoffed at me.
After all, who was I to question the electability of the man that the establishment had christened the Republicans' best hope for winning in 2008?
To me, it was just common sense.
There is always a certain portion of the population that will vote Democratic—that party has been successful for years at cobbling together groups that have nothing in common except a deep distain for Republicans.
