1. They believe in their own polls...

And their own millions. Money is speech!

2. "People telling you that were wrong, and I wonder if that is going to influence . . .

"your willingness to believe them, going forward?"

Probably not. They've already decided they would have won, except for the hurricane.

Now maybe the hurricane was God's way of thumping them.

Or maybe the hurricane just reminded people WHY we need effective government.

It is "government, of, by, and for" the people isn't it?

4. $$$

I still cant get over the money that was wasted by the republicans.I knew this aspect of their loss would give me days of joy following President Obama's win but it is so mind blowing.
