Dick Morris Admits he made stuff up to lift GOP morale...

Bonus Quote of the Day
"I think that there was a period of time when the Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said."

-- Dick Morris, in an interview on Fox News, explaining why he predicted a landslide for Mitt Romney in the presidential election.

So the question is why should anybody ever again take you seriously--especially those on the right and at FAUX News? We on the left already know you're full of shit.

on making stuff up. If there was truth and reality, nobody would know what to do. Everyone would be shocked and disoriented.

10. I wonder if this will have any effect....

as it appears Morris is confirming what David Frum has said: "Republicans Have Been Lied To And Exploited By A Conservative Entertainment Complex" On Lawrence O'Donnell's show he actually named Fox News and Limbaugh....

15. Oh, bullshit

Everyone in that echo chamber was crowing about their handpicked polls and "unskewed" experts. They were bathing in their own bullshit and believing it.

Now he's admitting Romney was a losing cause before the election? Don't think so.

17. Some people here got quite mad at anyone that would say *anything* negative about a D's chances

in this election. And some people would *only* say positive things, even if they really didn't know (and we didn't REALLY know until election day).

In any case, admitting this goes on is probably good, but only if people decide to act differently next time.

22. And With It Went What Credibility Bullshit Mountain Had Among Its Own...

What's interesting right now is how impotent Faux Noise has become. Last week's beat down was as much a revolt against Ailes and Murdoch as it was against Willard and Eddie Munster. The scene of turdblossom having an on-air meltdown will go down as the tipping point as ratings right after President Obama was declared the winner, the ratings on Bullshit Mountain hit the skids. This was an exodus of the faithful...stung with realizing they'd been deceived.

Today we have a big scandal in the Military and CIA and surely Bullshit Mountain would love to tie this to President Obama but any noise they spew now is ignored...they jumped one shark too many.

The bottom line is the great unhinged have few places to turn. The sting of reality has only stiffened their resolve to accepting fact and will rally around Bullshit Mountain again to hear what they want to hear...dial into the latest poutrage and live blissfully in their bubble.

24. Morris has done pretty well as a paid conservative cheerleader...

I wonder how much income Morris generated since his metamorphosis into paid cog in the conservative 'news' & entertainment machine. I also wonder how he sleeps at night. He must have de-activated his self-awareness chip years ago.

Even Faux news must be having second thoughts.

On second thought, probably not. Dumb people make up 95% of Faux news viewers.

33. Every person who voted for Romney

and is disillusioned about the election outcome, needs to see these types of articles over and over. They need to have it drummed into the silly little noggins that they MUST look beyond their own spoon fed circle of Beck, Limbaugh etc and get a clearer, more honest look at the world around them. It really isn't that scary.
