Dick Morris explains why he was so horribly wrong



Iíve got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker.


Morris predicted a 325-213 Romney landslide, but instead we got a ... 332-206 Obama "squeaker".

The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to ďnormalĒ levels. Didnít happen.


It was freakish how non-white people suddenly voted! And they did it again!

3. That is one scary clown.

And his reasoning regarding our landslide is even scarier.

5. Folks as much as this man gets it wrong, I believe that

he and others had good reason to believe that this would be a Romney blowout election. Ed Gillespie, Stuart Stevens and Rich Beeson can read polls and I would bet my house that their internals told them the same thing as the Obama internals. Yet they "knew" that they would win the election because they planned to steal the election--using a 2008 model. Along the way something went wrong and they were handed a cloudy defeat. Once we stop laughing at this clown and Rove, we need to look at the Ohio, Florida and Virgina numbers and then determine what kind of a victory did Obama earn.

6. Blah blah blah freedom

"We must stop Obamaís socialist agenda. Thatís our job for the next four years. We cannot allow Obama to magnify his narrow victory into a mandate for larger government, bigger spending, and less freedom."

"Blah blah blah freedom! Since he doesn't have the facts on his side, he might as well just pound the table. A good grifter knows how to adjust."

7. I LOVE it!!!

A difference of 112 would have been a "landslide", but a difference of 126 is a "squeaker"!!!!!

Here's a clue, Mr. Morris....126 is more than 112....More proof, I guess that so many (R)s just can't count!!!
