Stuart Stevens, buffoon


Romney's top strategist says his guy did fine because he won every group except folks making under $50,000

BY JOAN WALSH


When the Romney campaign seemed to implode in September and the blame game began, lots of blame got dumped on top strategist Stuart Stevens. Not surprisingly, Stevens has penned a defense of his candidate and his campaign – and it’s delusional, divisive and unbelievably stupid.

In his Washington Post Op-Ed, “Mitt Romney: A good man. The right fight,” Stevens seems to argue that Romney practically won, because he won a majority of voters who make more than $50,000 a year. “That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters,” Stevens claims. What a skewed, self-serving way of dividing up the world.

First of all, the median household income in the U.S. is $50,000; median personal income is around $40,000. So most Americans make less than $50,000; they’re not some tiny fringe group. Also, I’m sure that lots of people who make in the $25,000 to $50,000 range consider themselves middle-class. They’ll enjoy Stevens consigning them to the pool of low-income Obama dependents. And the notion that voters who aren’t middle-class don’t matter is disturbing, but no surprise coming from the guy who backed Mr. 47 Percent.

Stevens also consoles himself that where John McCain lost young white voters to Obama in 2008, Romney won them by 7 points in some polls. Wow, that’s some consolation for losing African-Americans, Latinos and Asians by 40 to 90 points. I’m disappointed that President Obama got less of the white vote, and even the white youth vote, than he did in 2008. But after four years of Republicans’ race-baiting and demonizing our first black president, it may be remarkable that he did as well as he did.

1. Yeah, he did so fine.. he lost. but, he got "47%" of the brainwashed

too low information voters. He can console himself with that along with being GQ's Award for Least Influential person in 2012.

I say Award mittLies with being the biggest Sociopathic Pathological Liar who said anything to win. Oh, and throw in the US corporatemediawhore$ in there for not calling him on it.

2. Oh, and Joan Walsh gets it..

Thanks for the article, DonViejo

4. Jason Linkins thinks it's pretty funny too

Just when you think the schadenfreude is dying down, some Republican writes another clueless article. And they wonder why we gloat.
