    Rachel Maddow Drops a Reality Bomb on the GOP, ‘You did not lose because of the storm.’

    Such a GOP view is actually welcome. Because by blaming the weather, rather than their own rejected policies, the GOP is likely to retain them, and continue committing the same Presidential campaign mistakes, hence losing again and again. And what could be better than that? icon_biggrin.gif

    Mitt would have been a more effective candidate if he didn't pander to all the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs on the right.

    I've related here before how I used to have a student in my Senior class of HS Political Science who would pull his Bible out of his backpack, hold it over his head and thump it with his other hand. While quoting scripture he thought overrode US law and court rulings that I was teaching. And especially about issues of gay rights.

    So yeah, he literally thumped his Bible in class to make his point. And he's not the only fundamentalist who does that, in my own personal experience. And you can see televangelists do it on TV, too. The phrase therefore has a real basis in fact.

    The Hurricane didn't hurt him one bit. The states that were affected were heavily blue states.

    Seriously, I've never seen it done. And I've never ever ever watched a televangelist so I guess I've been missing out all of these years!

    No and, more surprisingly, neither did the 'conservative-hating' IRS.

    What a dumbass.
    He's a loser who blames everybody and every thing except the FACT that the voters trusted President Obama a hell of a lot more than they trusted Romney.

    Aristoshark saidFor Romney, anything is preferable to facing the fact that he lost because America just didn't want him as president. Aside from his right-wing nuttery, he came across as thoroughly creepy and unlikable.


    3.9% is far from 1964, 1972 and 1984.

    A loss is a loss is a loss, and Romney's loss to Obama was still considerable.

    And contradicting the "big mo" you claimed above that he had on the eve of the election. He never had a big anything, except delusional overconfidence, and cheerleaders like Fox News that hoped their lies about the polling would become a self-fulfilling prophecy, by persuading Americans to jump on the bandwagon for their designated "winner".

    Except you on the Right backed the designated loser. And are now trying to rationalize Romney's, and the GOP's, election failure.

    I'll paste again this quote from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, perfectly applicable to this Romney claim that external issues like Sandy & the IRS caused his loss:

    The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
    But in ourselves, that we are underlings.


    Shakespeare had it nailed, 400 years ago.
