Adviser: Romney "shellshocked" by loss

Adviser: Romney "shellshocked" by loss

........................

Romney was stoic as he talked the president, an aide said, but his wife Ann cried. Running mate Paul Ryan seemed genuinely shocked, the adviser said. Ryan's wife Janna also was shaken and cried softly.

"There's nothing worse than when you think you're going to win, and you don't," said another adviser. "It was like a sucker punch."

................................

Both wives looked stricken, and Ryan himself seemed grim. They all were thrust on that stage without understanding what had just happened.

"He was shellshocked," one adviser said of Romney.

119. If true, they were all lied to as well.

They couldn't possibly have thought they were going to win if they were apprised of the real data. If they were aware of what was going on before the election, they would have been prepared for both outcomes, or just the worst.

He would have chosen who Norquist and Adelson wanted. His secretary of war (why sugar coat it?) would have been a Bush retread, and the rest of them would have been bankers and businessmen, necessary to getting rid of regulations and taxes.

218. That's what I've been wondering. Karl Rove sure felt like he had it in the bag

But when the SOS walked out and went home, I knew then that the "computer patch" that hadn't been "tested" that he was running on the voting machines was somehow not flipping the votes to Rmoney the way they were paid to do.

93. The emperor's new polls.

Mitt hired pollsters to design polls that made him look like a winner. He even went parading into PA when the pollsters told him that the swing states were looking marvelous.

they all thought Rove had purchased Ohio for them....hell look at the frantic clips of Rove on fox when it was called for Obama.
I firmly believe HE thought he bought the vote.

What they didn't factor in was the ground game of team Obama!

Anyone suspected of being worth around a Billion dollars should be counting his blessings every day (instead of counting his money and all the hiding places for it) and down on his knees thanking God. And then maybe doing something really worthwhile with some of it. He'll never spend it all, anyway! His kids and their kids will never spend it all. His wife's ailments at their very ungodly worst would not exhaust it all. Wouldn't even come close. I can think of a few hundred thousand hurricane victims who could use a little extra help, and the Red Cross has always specified donations of money.

Hey, they're all still mighty fortunate even in the worst of times, as I'm sure you could describe this moment. At least they can cry all the way to the bank. I'm actually a bit glad for ayn. MS and heavy stress do NOT go well together. The job of First Lady is so damned demanding and pressure-filled that it would probably make her sick, or sicker, sooner.

71. They had the same access to the information Nate Silver and Sam Wang

were publishing every day for free that the rest of us had. All they had to do was take a look at the numbers. Where they that dumb not to even take a peek? Or did they look and discount it? Whatever. The information was there for one and all to see. They ignored it at their own peril. They were not alone, by the way. Joe Scarborough and others on the right did the same thing. Looks like Nate and Sam got the last laugh on this one.

As for Mitt and Ann being shellshocked...


that was pretty evident on Election Night when they wandered out on stage like a bunch of lost sheep. Even Mitt seemed uncharacteristically quiet and calm. (Was he medicated? We may never know, but he did have a kind of glazed look in his eyes.) And his speech was a bit too nice. If the words were his, he did come from a place inside that we've never seen before. More than likely, however, one of his underlings penned those words that have garnered him so much praise from all sides.

Now that the fireworks show had to be scrapped and Ann had to cancel the new china and drapes for her digs at the White House, may they all fade into the sunset and become footnotes in the annals of time. So long suckers. Don't let that screen door hit ya in the fanny, as we like to say here in the South.

What a rotten thing to say because it implies that Obama didn't fight fair. Or do the mean the sucker punch was delivered by Romney advisors, who got everything so terribly wrong. Somehow I don't think the latter is what they had in mind.

115. My thoughts

Romney is the most insulated candidate in history.

We are talking a borderline sociopath, which you'd have to be to work in vulture capital. His advisers couldn't tell him the truth, which is he would lose big because being Not Obama wins when Obama was a shitty president and Obama is a great one.

So they made sure not to let Romney close to reality. They showed him polls which were less reliable than Soviet crop reports and made the same way. They never showed him a whole paper, just anti-Obama clippings. I am sure he saw all 12 of the endorsements from papers who endorsed Obama in 08 and Romney this year, but not the multitude of Obama endorsements. And I'm now convinced this is why Fox was Benghazi News Network for the last month: they didn't let Romney watch anything else, except maybe PG-rated DVDs.

This also explains Ryan's absence on the campaign trail: he knew, so they had to keep them apart.

When election night came and the emperor was seen strolling down the street naked, Romney came to realize not only the futility of his quest but the deceit of his advisors.

117. The part that I noticed was this

3. Undecided voters. The perception is they always break for the challenger, since people know the incumbent and would have decided already if they were backing him. Romney was counting on that trend to continue. Instead, exit polls show Mr. Obama won among people who made up their minds on Election Day and in the few days before the election. So maybe Romney, after running for six years, was in the same position as the incumbent.

They kept warning, and still are complaining about, what Obama will do now that he is president. They campaigned against him like he was running for his first term. But the stuff they were saying was obviously false as he was already president and hadn't done it but could have. I think that probably cost him. I mean it might rally the base, but as far as moderates go, they'd have to look at those stupid warnings and think, "He is already president. He hasn't taken anyone's guns. Why are they warning that he'll take my guns if he becomes president?"

Anyone with a firm grip on statistics knew they've been rigging votes since 2000 in the presidential and numerous congressional elections. Obama and his crew are so bright and aware that they probably figured out some way of neutralizing this. I think the same thing happened right before the 2008 election--Rove's prgrammer, Mike Connell, was on the verge of being deposed just a few days before the election. And Rove, who until that time had been saying in his columns that McCain was going to win started saying that Obama was ahead.

They misread turnout. They expected it to be between 2004 and 2008 levels, with a plus-2 or plus-3 Democratic electorate, instead of plus-7 as it was in 2008. Their assumptions were wrong on both sides: The president's base turned out and Romney's did not. More African-Americans voted in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida than in 2008. And fewer Republicans did: Romney got just over 2 million fewer votes than John McCain.

If you can't buy your target with leveraged money, (OPM), dismantle it and sell off the parts, then send the carcass into bankruptcy, then do you manage a company like you managed your campaign. It appears your campaign was bankrupt when you thought it was flourishing. How does this reflect on you as a manager.

One of the first things you learn about campaigns is not to fall for that.

The only other thing besides everything that has been said here is that Romney thinks like a corporate owner more than a politician, which makes him especially susceptible to cockeyed optimism. It's what the business world runs on. Plus, people are always afraid to tell the owner the truth. You can't tell me not a single person in that campaign saw 20 Ohio polls with Obama leading and wasn't freaked out by it.

Shellshocked like the workers at Sensata that had to train their Chinese replacement workers?

209. "We just felt, 'where's our path?'" said a senior adviser. "There wasn't one."

These people are so clueless, living in their Richie Rich bubbles. R$ never had a path, he was like a wandering drunk in the wilderness, having no idea where to go, going this direction for the Tbags and that direction for the Kochs and another direction to be more in the middle. geesh. The R's need to go do some community service in a place where people are hurting and maybe they will get a clue.

213. Good! Especially the Queen.

Just really, I'm so glad it hurt. I am.

"You people" just told her to cover it with 40 grit sandpaper and shove it up her ass.

214. SALT FOR THE SALT GOD! TEARS FOR THE TEAR POOL!

222. My favorite -- "It was like a sucker punch"

that's for all the dog whistles and the gross disrespect shown toward the president during the first debate.

225. Everything he's done and then everything he pulled, for that crew to be frog marched

out to absorb how hard they just caught it is delicious.

For the workers he fucked over, up in your bedclothes and face the end.

For the nasty, shitty, duplicitous campaign you ran, squint into the spotlight and blink.

I've tried and am trying not to be vicious in victory. And all the work remains - paper trail ballots, overturn Citizens United, get it through our thick fucking skulls that the midterms aren't some sort of exhibition game.

But this was one of the worst candidates and mean-spirited campaigns of my lifetime. There was no lie too big for them to shrink from it.

Love to see that Election Night reality was the one thing they couldn't lie their way around.

231. A couple of days before the election

there was footage of Ann on the plane (also at a rally), and she didn't want to answer questions and looked as if she'd been crying. I believe they had been given bad news and knew they were going to lose. I'm sure there was the finality on election day, but regardless of what is being reported, I don't think they were thinking they were going to win. Body language a few days out suggested otherwise coming from the Obama and Romney camps.

What else is there to say when you have been leading donors to believe that your campaign was in a winning position until the very end?

233. Exactly. There was so much money funding their campaign

it was important to maintain the illusion that Romney-Ryan stood a good chance of winning, otherwise the cash flow would have slowed down.

Don't stop believing. It's the emperor's new clothes, where everyone went around saying how great the emperor's non-existent clothes looked, and even the emperor thought he looked great. Those clothes cost a fortune!
