Of all the "Romney felt he was gonna win in his gut" stories, this one is the best IMO...

http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/11/03/30k-for-romney-rally-in-ohio-for-barack-obama-less-than-3000-show-up/

So Governor Romney goes onstage and gives his speech. The crowd just totally embraces him. From beginning to end. Every word. They are fired up. Loud. Positive. Cheering. Just an amazing moment for the campaign. Everybody backstage were all smiles and peeking out at all those people and shaking their heads. This is the kind of moment in a campaign you never forget. Ever. Nobody who hasn’t experienced it can really understand this feeling. You’re looking at a candidate being transformed right in front of your eyes into the next Leader of the Free World. They go from being human into something just a bit more. It’s all those people. That energy. It kind of fills the candidate up and makes them bigger than life. And you arewatching it happen in real time. Right then.

The governor returns backstage and he is smiling and shaking hands, taking congratulations from everybody around him. He’s saying how great it was. Somebody yells out he’s going to win Colorado and the governor laughs and says he thinks so too. And then something very interesting happens. He moves away from the group of people just a bit. Maybe ten or fifteen feet or so. Just enough to have a little space to himself. And enough people notice that the area gets a lot more quiet, and they are trying to watch the governor without looking like they are watchingthe governor. They can all kind of tell something is happening right then. It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment. And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.” And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.

I’m 100% convinced Mitt Romney was shaken to his soul right then and there. I think at that moment it was sinking in he might really be the next American president, and it humbled him right to his core, in every nerve of his body. And as he was saying that little prayer, you could hear the sound of thunder from all those thundersticks outside. Like this huge low rumble that just surrounded all of them at once. A quiet little prayer, and the sound of thunder.
The sound of God. Mitt Romney’s Quiet Prayer Amidst The Sound Of Thunder

1. Oh my. And here I had just eaten dinner, and all. That is just grotesque to read.

And it's an act. It's all an act by Romney. Trying to make him seem like a evangelical.

Frankly, he was so sure because they guaranteed that all of the voter suppression and Koch Bro money would work. It didn't.

6. The comments are hilarious, including from nutcase sports tout Wayne Allyn Root

The stories I could tell about that guy, going berserk in casinos when his top pick crashed and burned.

Actually it's not a comment he posted to that site. Somebody pasted and linked something Root wrote on another site. He turned to right wing rants many years ago, often writing letters to the editor in Las Vegas.

8. "And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites,


for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.

12. What is it with right-wingers and teleprompters?

They ridicule Obama for using a teleprompter - but Mittens used it too!

14. This is what comes from mixing politics and religion. These people actually believe god is on their


side. The writer is talking like he is watching jesus rise to heaven. This is a very dangerous form of delusion and these people would be dangerous if they gained power. I hope for the sake of the world that the religious zealots in the tea party movement are sent back to the revival tents by the old guard republicans. If there are any left.

15. "These people actually believe god is on their side"...when it suits them.

They will not look at Obama being elected over Mitt the Twit as God speaking. Which then means their God is faulty...and they should abandon him. At least, in my opinion.
