    I actually believe it was option A. His own people didn't understand the electorate. When George Will said he thought Romney was going to win with over 300 electoral votes, I actually began to worry just a little bit, because I have always respected George Will, even when I don't agree with him. They all were duped. They had the wrong voter model and it was off big time. One thing I can be pretty sure of; you won't see them make this mistake again.

    I loved George in the 70s. He was a fierce opponent of Reagan and the voodoo economics, but later turned tom the dark side. It was all downhill from there. He got more face time on television and his books and articles sold well..but he sold his soul.

    I did enjoy The pursuit of happiness, and other sobering thoughts

    I doubt it.


    But I do not doubt that both candidates were beat to hell from the campaign and (win or lose) happy that its over.

    Who probably IS shell shocked are the billionaires supported MITT.


    The must have one hell of a collective case of BUYERS REGRET.

    Mr. Burns: I see it all, now. You're just a bunch of yes-men. I was making the wrong moves and you were too gutless to tell me! Isn't that right??
    Yes-men: Oh, yes, sure, etc.
    Smithers: Right on, sir.

    Nah, I expect a few tell-all books and an HBO movie within a year or so.

    Was Romney shellshocked?

    I think he was. If you look at him closely during the concession speech, it's clear that he had been crying. You don't cry on election night if you know well in advance that you lost. McCain didn't cry.

    Romney was a victim of the 'Conservative Entertainment Complex', too.
