3. I'm more interestsed in the media folk who point what Romney won, like " he won 47% of the vote. "

what a great way to frame his loss. I've head this sort of framing from talking heads on MSNBC & ABC.

5. Simple

24 hour news cycle and the talking heads need something to fill air time.

6. And the electoral vote was never really close, Romney was never REALLY in it.

So I think the answer must be that they are very, very stupid.

7. They are hoping that the more they say that ReTHUGs expected to win

is the less we'll remember that they said it was too close to call.

8. lichtman's key's actually also provide a good explanation for results:

incumbent running for re-election
landmark legislation
no primary opponent
no third-party candidate
no scandals
no social unrest
no foreign policy debacles
killed bin laden
economy not in recession
non-charismatic opponent


all rmoney had going for him was:

sub-standard gdp
his party picked up seats in 2010
non-charismatic opponent

9. And big,lying,hypocrite..

Then they keep telling us he was suppose to win. Who says so,they are talking to each other and can't hear us. I hear tweety doesn't get that the country voted in liberals and voted for legalizing marijuana,he says he still trying to figure it out.

What he doesn't get is that there are 300 million people in the country now,something that all in the media don't get and that we aren't living in the 50's and people know better.
