This article proves that some Romney supporters are living under the somewhat delusional assumption that anything would be different had Romney been elected. Does anyone honestly think that a more hardline approach towards Russia would have prompted Putin to hand over Snowden or reject the Assad regime? Or, after Romney’s election, would Detroit have suddenly rebounded and become an industrial hub once again? It is impossible to know, but quite unlikely. Using “Things would have been better if…” as an argument is both tired and fallacious.
