Strapped to the roof of his own karma: Romney ends up with 47% of vote
With ballots still being counted (ballots are still being counted?) in Maryland, New York and California, Mitt Romney’s share of the popular vote will dip below 47.5 percent, and round down to the now-infamous 47%.
Cue the irony.
Says Greg Sargent:
At risk of piling on, a 47 percent finish would represent a perfect conclusion to the Romney political saga. If Romney ran a campaign of unprecedented dishonesty and lack of transparency, virtually all of it was geared towards misleading people about the true nature of his — and his party’s — actual beliefs and governing agenda. This was the case on multiple fronts, from Romney’s dissembling about the size of the tax cut he’d give to the rich, to his evasions about the overhaul he and Paul Ryan planned for the safety net, to the obscuring of the massive upward redistribution of wealth represented by the Ryan agenda — the GOP’s central governing blueprint for nation’s fiscal and economic future.
