Dick Morris: Why I Was Wrong
National Review ^
Posted on Wed Nov 07 2012 12:06:52 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time (Mexico)) by TigerClaws
Dick Morris explains why his prediction was completely off:
Iíve got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an 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. These high levels of minority and young voter participation are here to stay. And, with them, a permanent reshaping of our nationís politics.
Gotta love Dick. Couldnít have been more wrong on his prediction last night and back today telling us how to interpret last nights results
Shut up Dick, nobody cares what you have to say anymore.
Note to Self: Never listen to a toe-sucker.

A squeaker? This (guy) Dick can't even lie about his lie effectively.

3. The difference between a squeaker and a MANDATE
a democrat and a republican.
This president now has the same basic popular vote win as Bush did in 2004, and a MUCH more commanding Electoral College margin.
Bush had a MANDATE, this president will have to bend over to the will of the republicans in the House because it was a squeaker.
