Rinse Pringle knows what went wrong with the Romney campaign...

It should of been 4 years!

MADISON, Wis. —The Republican National Committee chairman told WISN 12 News reporter Kent Wainscott what he believes went wrong in the Mitt Romney presidential campaign.

"In a nine-month operation, which is basically what the Romney team put together and the RNC, I think they ran a great campaign -- a nine-month campaign. But the problem was the other side ran a four-year campaign, a pretty good four-year campaign," Reince Priebus said. "I think from all the conclusions you can draw from the campaign, I think the one that's pretty safe is, we need to be a four-year operation. We can't do a three-year buildup and a one-year campaign and then a tear-down."

Priebus said Barack Obama campaign demonstrated why campaigns have to be on the ground for four straight years.

1. I heartily endorse this suggestion

I think the republicans should plan on holding their nominating convention this year and give us three years to get to know their nominee.

8. You gotta love it ...

the right (and some here) has claimed President Obama has been in a 4 year campaign-mode ... Is that what they call actually going out a telling people how you are attempting to do what you campaigned on?

That's like a coach divulging his game-plan and you campaigning that his team is winning ... by working his game plan.

9. Note to Rinsed Penis: You held the economy hostage for 4 years.

The GOP set this up like a T-ball for Prince Romney but he struck out.

Rupert Murdoch in effect campaigns all the time for GOP candidates and certainly did his part during the 2008 to 2012 period. Here is his take:
http://thehill.com/blogs/twitter-room/other-news/235809-rupert-murdoch-romney-needs-to-hire-real-pros-to-beat-obama

And who could forget the Fox News moment of truth: "Why do we even do this show (if Romney is just going to screw it all up)?"

11. Let me translate for those who can't seem to understand what point rancid was trying to make:

"I am just another incompetent Republican toadstool that doesn't have a clue as to what's going on outside, but they still pay me."

14. Aaaaah. It's the TIME, not the IDEAS or the PEOPLE.

It's not about "Keeping those ants in line!", we just needed more time.

The light is shed.

15. Of course

Mitt's massive loss had nothing to do with him having no "ground game", essentially winning the nomination by default (even after having ran for POTUS for 5 years), him and his wife saying stupid, mean-spirited things about nearly half the people in the country and insulting most of the same kind of people on several occasions, believing in "skewed polls" that showed him winning the election despite a multitude of polls (mostly state ones) showing that he was not likely to win it, and trying to politicize a tragedy (Libya), not having any real plans or ideas for what to do if elected POTUS, and basically adopting Tea Party rhetoric for most of the campaign (despite probably not really believing in a lot of it but not having any real choice but to parrot it for the sake of the GOP's knuckledragging cult members).


the only brief *shining* moment for Mitt in the entire general election was his first debate with President Obama though, of course, that really only came about because he showed up and pretended to be somebody more moderate and *sensible* than the current Republican Party lets its nominees. Other than that, it was pretty much a wall-to-wall disaster for his campaign and the GOP in general. Despite all of the breathless pronouncements that the MSM made that the election was Romney's to lose, I NEVER saw it.
