when u try to tell ur friends a pun
When conservatives say that running Romney again is a bad idea, because he couldn’t beat an incumbent President (which rarely happens anyway), I just have to remind them that in Reagan’s first attempt at President he was beaten in the primary by Ford…who promptly lost to Carter.
Reagan couldn’t beat the guy who couldn’t beat the 2nd worst President of the 21st century. Reagan running again was clearly a stupid idea right?That’s true but his campaign was a complete failure. He didn’t play hard ball against Obama the way he should have. Regardless of his policies, I won’t jump on the Romney 2016 trail myself unless he does something to prove he’s ready to run a REAL campagin this time around.I get that, but these are all things you can learn from in a 2nd campaign. Frankly, from his public appearances and commentary on the failure of Obama’s 2nd term, it appears he’s already put those lessons to work.I also don’t see anyone better in the field of candidates. Sure some of them might be more vicious in attacking, but those candidates also have no experience as an executive and have proven themselves to be just as unlikely to learn to compromise as Obama has been. I would really rather not have the Republican version of Obama in charge either.And I really don’t understand your last point. There was literally nothing about Romney that wasn’t conservative. He was basically Reagan 2.0.
