Culture versus Romney

Reader comment on item: What Is the Future of Conservatism in the Wake of the 2012 Election?

Submitted by Dennis Schneider (United States), Jan 3, 2013 at 11:55

Mr. Pipes,

... Wall Street wanted Obama, someone they could trust,

Romney was a loose projectile, reducing taxes for the rich is not all that popular,

and changing opinions too frequently does not sit well with the Power Structure.

"Don't alienate the 47 per cent" should be every politicians"motto. The media is so saturated

with fear issues it is difficult to use Nixon's "crime tactics" successfully.
