Mitt’s Election Post-Mortem Conference Call — Another Heat-Seeking Missile of 47% #FAIL Into the GOP

By: Thursday November 15, 2012 7:13 am

I’m not sure if Mitt Romney’s election post-mortem conference calls with donors were supposed to go like this, but his freestyling redux of his contempt for the 47% “moochers” and “takers” on the government teat was on grand display.

You can only imagine it was his Id, sore and pissed about his failure as a presidential candidate, with a shaky finger on the “launch” button of a heat-seeking missile aimed right at his party for tossing him overboard so quickly after the election. All that talk about outreach to Latinos, that growing demographic demonized all campaign season long by the GOP; the talk of how sh*tty their pro-rape candidates were that sank their chances to pull the wool over the eyes of women, after Mitt stood by Akin and Mourdock, not calling for them to step aside.

Now it was his turn.

And it’s not just the GOP– 49% of Democratic voters also believe that demons can possess us.

NPR Poll: Romney Leads by One Nationally But Obama up by Four in Swing States

By: Tuesday October 30, 2012 10:30 am

It would seem that Obama simply has the far more effective political campaign. In the parts of the county where neither campaign has really been active Romney is doing well, but in the places where both campaigns are heavily active Obama appears to be over-performing.
