TYT: Romney Campaign Genuinely Shocked at Loss




Cenk is confused how "no one" in the R$ campaign contemplated the possibility of Robme losing the election. He suspects it is their unmitigated arrogance.

1. LOL, Cenk always makes me laugh out loud.

He's like an extra for Parks and Recreation, or something - he has this uncanny ability to ridicule Republicans, no matter what issue he's talking about.

3. of all aspect of this story this is what boggles my mind the most - don't they check Intrade?

Don't they read the numerous non-partisan number crunchers? Every single bookie, financial derivative market and ever single non-partisan statistician all said the same thing - every single one without ANY exceptions - that it was possible for Romney to win if absolutely everything broke their way and they cut every single lucky break - but Obama held the very strong advantage - absolutely everyone knew that except the Republicans from the lowest grassroots level to the senior advisers and candidates themselves. This is third world despot level self-delusion - a culture of no one telling the emperor or even the emperor's advisers and supporters that the emperor has no clothes.

4. Romney thought he'd get in via Divine Right

After all, he was the fulfillment of the White Horse prophecy, right? There was simply no chance that he'd lose!

And yes, that's exactly how some people think. It's why those cream cheese audiences looked so stricken with grief when reality jumped up and bit them.

20. Morman prophecy is all con.

The founder found magical stones buried in Palmera NY and read them with his magic stone that only he could read...what a load of nonsense.
Another con man taking advantage of gullible and fearful people to gain power over them. White horsey prophecy my ass. A I've said before...next the GOP will run some authoritarian who believes Zeus will give him a thunderbolt to use on his enemies after he is elected.
People are waking up to all the religious mythology these cons use to gain power over them.

" Man will not be free until the last King is strangled with the entrails of the last priest." Anyone know who said this?

22. Denis Diderot and I quite agree with him

but unfortunately the human race is still producing authoritarian thinkers who demand kings and priests to obey.

Of course Joseph Smith was a conman. He had an arrest record to prove it. However, what he came up with isn't any stupider than any other religious creation dogma.

The White Horse prophecy is apocryphal, having appeared many, many years after Smith's death but still attributed to him. That doesn't mean the faithful haven't swallowed it whole.

Maybe the Republicans thought that all of their fraud hadn't kicked-in yet.

12. he was supposed to be the "chosen one" to lead the country.

He was told that all of his life. There was no way he could lose according to everyone around him that kept telling him-hey nothing can go wrong. you are the chosen one. you will lead. not to worry. guess what. he is just a man. with no idea how to be a real human being. he has no foundation, no values. so the loss was much worse to him. and so much sweeter to all of us. YEA BABY-A GREAT WIN!!!!!

16. I feel so sorry for them for being so easily manipulated

For allowing themselves to think that all they had to do was wish it and it would come true. They didn't have to have a platform where the majority of voters would actually vote for them. All they had to do was turn on Fox and let the racism, bigotry, hate and stupid just wash all over them. And then go vote for the biggest pack of lies ever put together to con a bunch of very stupid people.

It's just so sad that so many people in the US really wanted Romney to win. Thank God the rest of us can see clearly and used our brains.

18. How about if they counted on the Lords of the Debold?

Wasn't THAT a possibility?

We're gonna win! Why? Cause.... we'll make the vote say so?

19. This just makes no sense to me.

Any decent pollster looking at the polling data during the last few weeks of the campaign had to know Romney was in trouble. Did they really believe only Rasmussen, Gallup and Gravis were correct and all the rest wrong? If so, they have seriously warped minds.
