Presumably if Romney had been elected president in 2012, then Donald Trump never would have been elected this year or (one would think) ever.

Given that, do you wish that Romney had won the 2012 presidential election?

No, because Obama's second term was superior to his first (save for Obamacare).

Trump's victory wasn't inevitable or something. Democrats just f**ked this up.

Well, Obamacare will be gone by 2017.

Of course not. Four years of Obama were a small price to pay for eight of Trump.

It's honestly not even a price. Those of us with any degree of intelligence got both of the great ones.

I think Romney would've had an easier time repealing Obamacare than Trump will, so no.  Absolutely not.

I would think it is generally preferable for the patient to agree to cancer treatment when they are at Stage 3 as opposed to Stage 4, even if the earlier treatment is far less aggressive.

A Romney administration would have been palliative care, not chemo.

i certainly had problems with president obama, but he was definitely preferable to mitt romney. had romney been elected the us might very well have gotten into a disastrous war with iran. and that is just one big issue that comes to mind. people need to look at the big picture and not be so partisan.

Romeny was the best nominee either party has produced since 1988 and maybe 1984

I just realized I never even voted, I just empty quoted Computer (first time for everything)!

Very proud to have put Mr. Romney over the 50% threshold for the time being.
