Rove and Romney knew that 53% beats 47%. What they overlooked:

Some of the 53% stand with the 47%.

Just like some of the 47% voted Romney anyway, not everyone who is relatively well-off is a selfish miser.

3. And Karl Rove, AND Sheldon Adelson, AND the Kochs, AND those couple of brazillionaires down in Texas

I got the impression from over that half the time, Romney didn't even know he was being an asshole.

The billionaires who were financing his campaign (including all those PACS that supposedly were not) knew.

5. I think that if you spend your adult life being told you're hot shit

If nothing EVER goes wrong in your life, then at some point, some would begin to believe it.

7. Like an actor that believes their own PR.

Like Junior once said: "We make our own Reality."

6. That's what I like best. They wasted so much money

from the billionaire idiots' club. Mitt Romney = bad investment. In fact, across the board Republicans = bad investment. The Koch Brothers are now a joke. That's a lesson for future political investors.

8. Romney's other problem is that the number of us moochers is more than 47%.

9. So true ! And his fatal flaw was thinking that people wouldn't remember what he said before

his family had an intervention with him and told him to "be himself." (evidently, they think he has real beliefs). Although, this might have been a ploy. Maybe they knew he didn't, but knew he had to moderate to get that "middle."

I wonder what would have happened, if he never pulled the move to moderation stunt, coupled with a "don't talk to the press until the election so you don't have to explain" strategy ?

Do you think he would have lost by a huge margin?

10. They didn't have any new moves.

Gas prices went up; they tried to draw a parallel to Jimmy Carter. They knew they were gonna lose Ohio; they tried to steal it. They assumed they could steal Florida because it was under republican control.

There's an old saying: fool me once...

...can't be fooled again.

But the biggest mistake was to assume that they could spend money on TV ads and sway people. That ship has sailed. I hope in 2014 we see a lot more made for Internet commercials and an equal amount of get out the vote effort for the mid-terms.
