What Happened?

About a year ago, I was really concerned about the presidential election. Mitt Romney would have a lot of money, the economy was pretty bad and there was a lot of uncertainty about which direction things were headed, the GOP was blocking all attempts to improve matters, the Fed was sitting on its hands, whether the ACA would be upheld was TBD, etc. Things could definitely have gone either way. There's still a chance they could, but less of a chance than I would have thought. At the very worst, I thought Mitt Romney would be unlikable and unrelatable, but competent. Instead, he's unlikable, unrelatable, and a fuck up.


  1. I thought the exact same thing, especially the last sentence. Going into the primaries, my thoughts were: if Huntsman gets the nomination, I would feel the slightest urge to vote for him, but would probably still vote Obama; if Romney gets the nom, I won't vote for him, but I don't think he will ruin the country; the rest were all terrible. I don't know why I thought Romney would be different, because I felt the same way about him as I did McCain in '08. They both went off the deep end in the general.
