Ingraham: In the End,
Voters Didn’t Feel a
Connection With Romney

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 3:03:29 PM

Laura Ingraham joined America Live Wednesday to reflect on Mitt Romney’s loss in the 2012 presidential election and what it should signal to Republicans. Ingraham acknowledged that the president ran a terrific campaign and in the end, people just couldn’t connect to Mitt Romney. According to Ingraham, people “didn’t really know, in the end, what [Romney] stood for.” She continued, “He talked about things like 12 million new jobs and [how] we’re going to free up the energy sector, but it wasn’t enough for people to sink their teeth into.” She argued that Romney avoided pressing

Comments:
I sure had more of a connection with Romney than Barack Hussein 0bama! I think this election was won on voter fraud. All the absentee ballots and early voting in those critical states could have been easily tampered with. But alas, it doesn't matter now does it?

Sorry Laura, but your wrong, I had a connection. Problem was that those who voted for Obama wanted free stuff.

Laura and other radio types spent the whole primary season running down Romney. Could that be a reason?

I paid attention. Was not a Romney fan in the spring, but by September, I was convinced of his integrity, his ability, his sincerity, kindness and generosity, and his love of country. I felt a deep connection and was proud to cast my vote for him. People who "didn't connect" were not able to do so because they got their news from John Stewart, Chris Matthews, and Brian Williams. Their image of Romney came from Dave Letterman and Saturday Night Live. I've come to the sad conclusion that we cannot reach an ignorant electorate.

If you didn't live in a swing state you had little connection to either candidate. Myself, I was damn proud to vote for Romney.

I did vote for Romney. But his positions were about as vague as Hope and change. And I have to agree that many people did not connect with him.

The Democrats are better at hating than we are, let's face it. If we don't have a positive, specific message, we lose.

Democrat voters will regret this election.

No Laura, Romney's reputatio was besmearched the minute he won the nomination; he was Palinized along with many other Republicans. The tactics has worked so often, you would think the Repubicans would have figured it out already.

What with all of this Connection crap?, I want them to be qualified for the job, that is all that matters, can and will they do the job, I don't have to connect with them or like them or have a relationship with them. I want them to follow the constitution and stay out of the way otherwise. Do we have to like them no, who cares what they look like, or their Religion, as long as it won't limit our freedoms. Really people, it has now become a popularity contest instead of a job. no wonder were in so much trouble!!! geez.

Laura is not one of my favorite people but don't hear her or see her much. Good thing, apparently one of those touchy feely gals. Who on earth would want to be connected in any fashion with that smarmy puke? Mitt was all man and easy to understand and you know he was telling the truth. The critter said what he would do and hasn't done a thing but travel, talk and spend taxpayers'money.

One more futile post - much of our electorate has become the kardashian nation, willing to grant fame to people who are famous for being famous and nothing more.
And now that Zero has a second term, his replacement will get ready by offering to continue the freebies to half the population.
I weep for our once great country.

I agree, I definintely connect more with a president who hobknobs with Hollywood, rappers, magazine editors, singers and the lefty elitist millionaires in this country. Yes sir, I surely do connect with those folks. I connect with them when I see them on tv and in magazines and in the movies. Yeah, they're my kinda folks. Listen up people, they've already retreated to their mansions. They are done with you until the next election cycle. They won't be around when you lose your job, your house, your savings, etc. They just expect you to keep purchasing their version of culture.
Regroup conservatives. Figure it out. Stop enabling these hoods, stop buying their products. Cut them off at the knees. Let's get in their faces this time. Let's put them out of work.

Ingraham is an idiot! She wants to double down on the very things that are wrong with the GOP. If you think Romney lost because he wasn't socially conservative enough - you are part of the problem.

Women are not going back to the fifties. It's never going to happen. Gays aren't going back into closet. Get over it. The GOP is stupid - stupid and unconscious. It's time to wake up and get to know the people who live in this country. The days of lecturing others on how they should live their lives are long gone.

The GOP is pretty much down to one good thing - fiscal conservatism - living within our means. That's really, really important - but as we just saw - it does not trump personal freedom.

I felt a true connection. Romney reminds me of my dad, who has love of family and a work ethic that won't quit. Now Obama can hit the golf course and tell the rest of us to pound sand. Our fellow countrymen reelected him so he can sit on his lazy butt as much as he wants to. And of course, it is time for Michelle to take Air Force One and 100 of her closest friends to a five star hotel in some exotic, expensive location, courtesy of the American taxpayers.

OK I am done reading why Romney lost..or voters didn't connect...its all hogwash

America had a choice...America or Amerika
high taxes...low taxes
open boarders...closed boarders
free healthcare for unions..no healthcare for senior citizens and children under the age of 15...
coal...or no coal...warmth or cold...

Seems Amerika wants from America...
Its not Romneys fault...his message was out there...just ask the thousands that showed up in Colorado...or the thousands that showed up outside of Cinn...and at the same time obama had 2800 people show up...the message was out there....but others wanted an Amerika instead

Agree entirely with OP.
This was the most fraudently held -- outright fraud encouraged election, I've ever witnessed.
Mitt Romney is a very smart man, I'm sure he knows this, but the worst thing he could do -- and probably the least effective is to make charges along these lines without the nearly impossible resources needed to prove it on as large a scale as it was perpetrated -- from the deliberately manufactured chaos of ''early voting'' to union maintenanced machines.
This election was stolen every bit as much as Saddam Hussein's last election in 2002. And the winner is celebrating with the same smugness and absence of shame.

As for Laura Ingraham, her particular zealousness for her newly found Catholicism (something that would be admirable on it's own) would not allow her to forgive Romney for winning the primary over Santorum or Gingrich either. Interviews during and after on EWTN made that plain. She's disingenuous at best on the subject of Mitt Romney. And unforgiving.
She's not that unhappy with the results.

I had the same sinking feeling about Romney as I did when we ran Dole, and McCain. Good men but no chance at all of winning. Going against Obama was futile considering all of the special interests out there king pinning on his re-election. So much at stake for free government money for everyone. Redistribution of wealth and taxing the rich is a hard thing to beat.
Plus fee money and free cell phones is good tasting voter candy. Add in gay marriage, immigration changes coming that will open the gates at the border and this country will be fundamentally transformed into a third world social state the likes no one could have ever imagined.
Times have changed. It is what it is. Now Obamacare is here to stay. Gas prices today are around $4 a gallon. In four years they will be around $8 a gallon.

I agreed with at least one of Romney's positions on most issues. Like when he was against gun control, and when he was against unions, and when he was against bailouts, and TARP, and free abortion on demand, and especially when he was against Obamacare... well, against "certain provisions" in Obamacare.

I just don't see why people couldn't make a connection, when he had so many stances on so many issues, you couldn't help but find something to agree with!

Come on, America!!!

Agree wholeheartedly with #11. It is a sad indictment of our political system that our country's future is being decided on "feelings of connections" rather than ability and political philosophy.

Clearly the experiment with universal suffrage has been proven to be a very bad idea. I mourn for my once great nation today.

I disagree that there was no connection; the crowds that showed up for Mitt Romney was evidence of a strong connection. That is absurd. I certainly have more respect for Romney than I do for John McCain.

I don't feel the need blame Romney today. He ran a clean and respectable campaign. He lost because, among other factors, we now have a large uneducated and uninformed citizenry that is willing to squander liberty for an 0bama mortgage and a phone. For example, there are people, like three of our neighbors, who bought houses they couldn't afford and then deliberately didn't pay their mortgages so that they could qualify for these special loans. They believe the economy is getting better. One of these neighbors does not believe that the Constitution is the law of the land. That's right, she does not believe it. She does not believe that we have a Constitutional Republic, either. And, as a Democrat, she never heard of Harry Reid, I kid you not.

Mitt Romney is a gracious and charitable man, I do know that much. 0bama is neither. Romney is a moral and decent man. 0bama is neither. Romney truly loves the American people and America. 0bama loves only himself.

No amount of analyzing "what happened" is going to turn this country around. We patriots must stay true to our convictions and principles, regardless of the consequences. Do right, not wrong. This life is not all there is; we do not live for ourselves. We are resourceful, and those of us who believe in hard work and individualism will figure out creative ways to survive and live our lives. We will take care of those we love. And God will give us the strength and wisdom to do it.

Romney, an old white rich guy, was the perfect target for the Obama crew's Chicago street fighter based class warfare demagogic campaign. The liberal media; and the Obama crew were out fraudulently defining Romney with hundreds of ads to the voters in the swing States last summer as Romney was relaxing on the lake at Wolfboro, NH. Since Romney never refuted those bogus Obama charges, he never had a chance in the swing States that were crucial to winning the election.

The wimpy Republicans should have learned from the G.W. Bush era that fraudulent liberal Democrat charges that are not rebutted will kill you, just like they killed Bush who ignored the media beating that the liberals were giving him for many years. All that did was begot the country Barack Obama.

Laura.. youre wrong. Just because Obama was able, with the aid of complicit media, to bamboozle the tiny bit larger section of the public that is so out of touch they couldn't even name the Secretary of State.. doesn't mean it was for any lack in our candidate. Some say he was too moderate, and just as many can say he wasn't moderate enough. I say as long as we let some of these social issues come out of the closet every 2 years to be a bellwether of a worth of a candidate, we will be stuck with a pubic that is always more conderned with the winner of Dancing with the Stars than how we pay for health care and keeping the bad guys from killing us.

Its time to hold our elected officials to their words. And that includes Obama. He likes to talk alot and promise alot, now lets hear how he is gonna do it. Quit blaming Romney. He was the adult in the room and wanted to try to fix our country.

#23, you're right. But it's all going to be moot when the Iranians show up in our major cities with their suitcase nukes. Don't think it isn't coming either.
That stupid Biden was so smug about them not having a delivery system. Idiot. They have millions of delivery systems.
I had a wonderful teacher back in prehistory. He taught us to think. His favorite phrase was, "I don't want to know how you feel, I want to know what you think." Invaluable. Unfortunately, by the 80's the touchy-feelie sob sisters had taken over and now everyone's a sensitive wreck.
But hey, now everyone knows exactly how everyone else FEELS. Bleeeechhhh...

This voter felt a connection; he's decent, honorable and compassionate. And he got the shaft from shallow cultural cyphers who wouldn't understand such traits.

Let's face it; America is no longer filled with decent, honorable, informed voters. The Greatest Generation has pretty much died out and we're left with uneducated America-haters who really believe conservatives want to kill Granny and who are more impressed with celebrity and diversity than with competence and brains.

Those who live long enough to see the next election had damn well figure out how to fix this, if it's fixable. I'm not sure it is any more.

No Laura my family had a connection with Romney, but you see we like to work to provide for our family, Romney wanted people to work, Obama and his voters want things given to them. That is what is happening in America, to many do NOT want to work, they want the working people to share their earnings with them.
Romney/Ryan are class acts and good men, and would have been so good for this country.

Then the Dem's defined him (with little opposition).

Took most of us until very late to see what a fine, highly qualified man he is (even if if not a raging conservative). Too late the bring out ENOUGH republicans. Our Bad.

Romney seems to connect well with the electorate. I believe the demonrats even thought he was going to win.

If the numbers above are correct then the reason he didn't win is because some conservatives didn't vote for him. That is simply despicable. You handed the country to the American NAZI party because you couldn't vote for a Mormon?

#31 I hope the Iranians or North Koreans DO show up with suitcase bombs in major cities.

Killing 20 or 30 million home grown socialist is about the only way the US can be saved. It would be better if Americans didn't have to do it themselves.

Two bombs each in NYC and LA. One in SF one in Boston, one in Baltimore, Two in Houston one in Madison, Two in Chicago. Detroit can be spared as it is dying anyway, one more in Miami and Tampa.

Maybe the Islamist can purge some professors from major universities as well. I work in academia I could provide partial list of which ones to start with

All of this is nonsense. We have a two party system. If your party's candidate is Jo-Jo, the dogfaced boy, you go to the polls and vote for him, because,if you don't, the other party wins.

I should not have to share this planet with people too simple-minded to figure that out.

She's very wrong. The enthusiasm advantage was definitely more on the R & R team as evident by the turnouts at events & they definitely got the white vote and won the debates on issues. Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan connected. Period. If this had been 1980, Mitt would have won.

The problem is that the demographics of America has changed. The facts that voters in Washington are for legalizing marijuana's recreational use and voters in Massachusetts think doctor-assisted suicides are just peachy, tell me that too many 2012 American voters have lost their moral conscience. Too many people are sucking from the public teat now and Obama appealed to their fears and envy. Unfortunately, de Torqueville was prescient - America would be destroyed when her citizens found out they could vote free stuff for themselves. Obama campaigned not on issues or his dismal record but by pandering to a bunch of special interest groups. In the end, the vote in 2012 wasn't about connecting with voters but about which candidate could pay a higher price for the average voter's ballot when he found out he could sell. And, this is tragic, because it marks the end of people coming together as Americans.

I hope deTorqueville is wrong, that the average American voter will change. But if that happens, it will happen with a lot more pain than if R & R had won. I see America 2012 as a redux of Europe in 1930's where appeasers only managed to postpone the inevitable war only to have to pay a heavy price in blood and treasure later for stick their collective heads in the ground.

I don't feel a connection with Laura Ingraham. That is why I don't watch her when she subs for BOR, no matter how desperate I am for something to watch. Her radio show was cancelled here, too. And it looks like 59 million people did feel a connection of some sort with Romney because that's how many votes he got.

Hunker down and take care of your own. Ingraham is a self promoting huckster who favored Christie.

The days of lecturing others on how they should live their lives are long gone.

That is aimed at the GOP? What is so amusing about this kind of tripe is that anyone paying attention for the last, oh, 80 or 90 years recognizes that it is the Democrats who use the power of government to impose on and dictate to people’s lives. Space allows but one illustration: Sending women “back to the 50s”. I’m aware of no piece of legislation the GOP has ever introduced on this topic. Rather, Democrats have actually passed legislation forcing taxpayers and religious institutions to fund abortion on demand and contraception. The GOP opposes this kind of government coercion, and is therefore branded as “anti-women” and accused of using the government to control women’s bodies – when the most rudimentary examination reveals the exact opposite is true. If one can’t see the perversity in that, one is too far gone to deal with rationally.

The reality is that conservative policies DID NOT create the current social or economic condition of the country. However, if the country were ever to have a chance to recover – which it won’t at this point – conservative policies are the only way to do it. As one can see from the comments here, this is a lost cause.

I'm pleasantly surprised at the reactions of the above posters regarding the negative attitude of Laura Ingraham, because I agree. There were times when I had to turn her off the radio when she went on her constant rants of GWBush. She was merciless. But what does that get her? She did the same thing regarding Romney. No one pleases her and her criticisms are ruthless. I can't take her anymore.

I am up to here with the pontificating pundits. Laura Ingraham has no idea whether we connect with Mitt Romney or not, nor does she have any idea how many probably don't "connect" with Obit except to put their hands out for a giveaway.

Sweeping statements like this show limited intelligence in my book and/or an inflated sense of self.

I lost interest in strident Laura Ingraham years ago.

mitt was my first choice in 2008 and he was my first choice in 2012. i connected with him..... he symbolized everything decent and innovative about the american spirit.
i loved the fact he was married to the same woman for 42 yrs, he had a wonderful family who loved him. i'm not even going to rehash his success in everything he set his mind to do. he was sabotaged by a media who were jonesing for another term for their messiah. lord knows (and thank goodness) i feel no connection to the punk in the WH..i would have to re-examine my psyche if i did.

#20...i totally agree with you. i was a poll watcher for mitt all day yesterday. i saw absentee ballots, provisional ballots and people making "mistakes" on their ballots and voting again. supposedly, their "incorrect" ballot was thrown away and ex'ed but who knows if they weren't put through the scanner again.
i gave my time and some money for this ticket because i believed so much in mitt romney...i don't regret a second. i just cry for what america has become. i'm not speaking to my mother.
she seems to think it's OK to give away 55% of the estate my father left for his family.

She's sort of right. There WAS a 2.5 million conservative disconnect. Some may have been "bigots", but more, I believe, were conservative purists who voted for McCain last time & are bitterly disappointed with the GOP for giving us moderate candidates. And 2.5 million stayed home.

Good news is, 10 million stayed home from Obama's base. 10 million! If only it had been 13 million. If only the purists would have voted anyway, no matter the disconnect. I sure hope I'm wrong about our dollar collapsing this term. I really do hope I'm wrong. But I don't think I am.

IMHO, voters no longer feel much of a "connection" with Laura Ingram or the rest of the talking heads who spent a year denigrating Mitt Romney. And now, despite their daily rantings, they have the unmitigated gall to accuse Mitt Romney of running a "bad" Election! Sounds like she believes voters DO "feel a connection" with obama! That tells me all I need to know about Ms. Ingraham who has gotten very full of herself, much like a lot of "gopers" who have set themselves far above the supporters of Mitt Romney because they are all soo much more intelligent (and let's not forget "conservative) than we peons are. demonrats stick together and will defend the lowest of the low, if that person is a fellow believer, unlike a lot of weak-kneed-so-called-republicans. BTW, I agree with #8.

Who told Republicans

So 53 percent of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare. But is it me or Republicans behaving like it´s a 100 percent? Because I don´t know about you, but hanging your election hat on 53 percent seems dicey to me. I´m not saying ObamaCare won´t be and shouldn´t be an issue. But stopping action on any other issue in the meantime looks pretty stupid. Look, I was the first to say this Affordable Care Act wasn´t affordable and the promises behind it were just an act.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation´s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27. She is being honored, according to PPFA, because of her “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice: Diplomatic Solution Still

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the administration is deeply concerned the Turkish government attempted to block access to Twitter in the country. Carney said the administration has spoken to Turkey´s government about the issue and has urged it to restore access to the social media service. "We have conveyed our serious concern to the Turkish government, urge Turkish authorities to respect the freedom of the press by permitting the independent and unfettered operation of media of all kinds, and support the people of Turkey in their calls to restore full access to the blocked technologies," Carney said

Theory: Maybe Black Toddlers Are Suspended
From Preschool More Because of Racism
Atlantic Wire, by Philip Bump    Original Article

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

FBI, IRS, and Rhode Island law enforcement officials entered the Rhode Island State House on Friday, apparently to collect evidence from the offices of Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox. A spokesperson for the Democrat´s office said to the AP that his staffers weren´t informed why they were asked to leave the premises by state police. Fox´s office and his attorney declined comment on the incident, while the U.S. Attorney´s office would only say that law enforcement officials were carrying out two search warrants at the State House.

The White House has reportedly begun testing smartphones from Samsung and LG, perhaps indicating that BlackBerry may soon lose one of its most high-profile customers. Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

Are you are among the uninitiated lumpenproletariat who believe the decline of the Roman Empire was attributable to a multitude of factors? Do you still naively assume that rampant immorality, political corruption, inability to effectuate regime change without violence and bloodletting, failure to curb runaway inflation, the complete over extension of military resources and the eventual drought of plunder were among the reasons for the fall of Rome? Then you obviously have not read the latest NASA report on how the benighted empire could have avoided collapse if only it had adhered to the tenets of Karl Marx. Apparently, Rome

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell.

Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines
