I think Christie's attitude was better for the time, I also think he would have looked and heard everything, then acted. Heck, I supported Romney over Obama, but I couldn't follow his plans from week to week without getting a bit dizzy. Heck, most R's here were too embarrassed to engage in tax discussions given previous statements.

I think Christie would have been a leader, something we lack now.

OK, just curious on that one. I agree Romney was very much reactive, and that was just dumb. In this media environment Republicans need to be simple and consistent and comically focused.

Romney and Ryan fell for the trap of responding to too wide an array of issues, and appeared as if they were not focused, I thought that was great work by the media and lousy work by Romney too\____________________________

As far as the Conservatives fell behind Romney although they did not agree with a lot. Yep, and if they are sane they will next time to. For someone who seems to want compromise you have an odd reaction to it. You do not attack your candidate during the general election, that is pretty obvious.

On the other hand as they did with Bush they would have assailed Romney when he went off course.

This is is direct contrast to what Dems do. When in office and doing a complete 180 on issue after issue, they not only do not criticize, but circle the wagons and defend as well as sending out scout parties to attack anything that moves to take the focus off the malfeasance.

These are not analogous behaviors of 2 dissimilar groups, IMO acting as if they are alike is huge diservice, they are not remotely alike
In fact IMO you are playing the game the Dems desire to and in fact do play --- sure something may be unimaginably bad, but look at the other guys they are not perfect.
