1. Good article but it ignored one thing. Rmoney's extremely aloof personality. No body

really liked him. Had he a charming personality, he might have taken those states.

2. I hate these denigrating arguments ...

That said what were left with are numerous questions:

Ultimately is this a resounding rejection of Republican business policy and a rousing endorsement of Obama’s ability to handle the economy?

Was this election lost by Mitt Romney due to his inability to get his corner stone points across to businesses or did simply Obama with his galvanising presence among Black and Hispanic voters nullify any influence?

If the latter is true and it is indeed Obama’s presence, what does it mean for the Democrats in 2016?

Ultimately is this a resounding rejection of Republican business policy and a rousing endorsement of Obama’s ability to handle the economy?


How about recognizing that Racial/ethnic "minorities", women and the young(er) amongst us have a different economic understanding than that of (wealthy) white men; if so, than Yes, this election was/is a resounding rejection of republican business policy and a rousing endorsement of (President) Obama's ability to handle the economy in a manner that benefits Racial/ethnic "minorities", women and the young(er) amongst us, as opposed to republican business policy, that tends to benefit (wealthy) white men.

4. Totally agree

My basic assumption was that Romney tailored his policies to businesses. Obama won on the back of his strong showing among racial/ethnic groups and Romnys inability to compete among these. Where these two crossed (Business owners from racial/ethnic groups) surely Romney would have been able to garner some of the vote back from this cross section and stem Obama's run to victory.

As the election showed us he did not, and so does that mean coupled with the rest of Obama's votes that this is a firm backing for Obama's economic policy or was it simply that Romney couldn't convey his business message to the business comunity?

3. The Usual panoply of Racist Tripe...the Sole Refuge of the LOSER

Welcome to DU, by the way, joejoejoe.

Summary for those who don't want to read this RACIST piece of trash:

We all know the story: Obama won because of his "presence" rather than his "arguments." Only Republicans and business people have "arguments" (which is to say, rationality). Obama, on the other hand, is like a shamanesque witch doctor voodoo man who entrances the dumb black and Latino masses with his weird santeria appeal and rhythmic drumbeats!

Republicans and business people EARN stuff. Obama, in addition to drugging people with his mystical speech style (his "presence"), is just lucky. Indeed, that is the situation for most successful black people: they didn't really earn their success, but benefited from some "gift" given by an actually successful white person, or benefitted from dumb luck or circumstance. Also, Obama doesn't really do anything himself (other than entrance the dumb masses); rather, he is helped along by his "staff" that is made up of actual clever little white people who may or may not have, er, longish noses, if you follow...

------

The article a the link is an utter piece of shit unworthy of even a click.
