No, you didn't misread the title and I didn't mistype it. I mean it.
From my observations not only is Romney a pretty good guy who ran a pretty decent campaign (not flawless, but hey, nobody's perfect), he made this election a real and clear choice for the american people between ever increasing government "solutions" (spending) with reduced liberty (especially for the productive class) versus more limited government reach with more reliance on private sector and community based solutions. For that, I believe Romney deserves a great deal of credit.
It was a clear choice and Americans clearly chose (though it was fairly close).
Now we know clearly what the game is and now we can optimize how we play the game given that we know what the rules are. We can also guide our children (and descendants in general) to play the game as best possible.
Resilience and flexibility are the keys to surviving and thriving in any complex system and the political environment going forward is no exception.
