Republicans' foolish actions cost Romney the election

Mitt Romney had the election won about a week after the first debate. Then the idiots Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Michelle Bachman and Newt Gingrich came out and started the birther baloney about Obama, his religion and many other stupid things. Since the base was already on Romney's side, they didn't have to keep their stupid ideas out there. This actually chased the undecided to Barack Obama.

Obama lost a lot of black support because of his stand on gay marriage. Then the dumbest thing the Republican Party did was to try and suppress the black vote. What a bad mistake, since Obama had already lost a lot of his black support.

Because of this GOP action, blacks were willing to stand in the voting line for four to eight hour hours to vote for Obama.

If Romney had won, the Republicans would have said it was was God's will. Apparently, God's will was for Obama to win. And thank God for stupid people.
