But the more proximate cause of my error was that I did not take full account of the impact of hurricane Sandy and of Governor Chris Christie’s bipartisan march through New Jersey arm in arm with President Obama. Not to mention Christe’s fawning promotion of Obama’s presidential leadership.
It made all the difference.
A key element of Romney’s appeal, particularly after the first debate, was his ability to govern with Democrats in Massachusetts. Obama’s one-party strident approach, so much the opposite of what he pledged in his first national speech in 2004, had turned voters off. But by working seamlessly with an acerbic Republican Governor like Christie, Obama was able to blunt Romney’s advantage in this crucial area.
Sandy, in retrospect, stopped Romney’s post-debate momentum. She was, indeed, the October Surprise. She also stopped the swelling concern over the murders in Benghazi and let Obama get away with his cover-up in which he pretended that a terrorist attack was, in fact, just a spontaneous demonstration gone awry.

Apparently Chris Matthews agrees. Question for non atheists. If Sandy was an act of God, was God actually on the side of Obama in this election?
And then there's Chris Matthews. If a five minute photo op for Obama sealed this election... this country is in for a world of hurt.
Morris is such a hack. I really don't understand why Fox pays him when he's wrong so often.
I have to admit. Dick Morris is a fucking idiot. That guy could not have been more completely wrong. And not only that, but he was so 100% confident that Romney was going to win. He was also wrong about a bunch of his predictions in 2010. It's time for him to stop milking his time as a Clinton adviser and hang up his cleats. Nobody should read his stupid "Dubs goes to Washington" books. He could not be more over-rated. He still has plenty of money to spend the rest of his days paying prostitutes to suck on their toes. Enough is enough. Foxnews should get rid of him.
I think Romney possibly could of won the popular vote if it hadn't been for Sandy but it had no impact in swing states. This is because Obama built a strong coalition among Hispanics, Latinos, Blacks, & single women in those states. One interesting fact in exit polls was that 45% of people said Obama's handling of Sandy was very important to their vote.
"I've got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker.'
'The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to "normal" levels. Didn't happen. These high levels of minority and young voter participation are here to stay. And, with them, a permanent reshaping of our nation's politics."
So, if you recall, ol
This quote is especially hilarious. Any illusion of a one-party approach by Obama is because he had to forge his own path thanks to the ridiculous obstructionism from congressional Republicans. And Romney is far from an accomplished bipartisan leader. Just look at his huge number of vetoes as MA governor. The fact that many of those vetoes were eventually overridden by a Democratic legislature does not count as bipartisanship.

Matthews was glad there was a huge superstorm. Like I said yesterday, and always: Chris Matthews is a fucking douche.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: I am so proud of the country. To reelect this president and overcoming -- not because of the partisanship or even the policies. Herem so glad we had that storm last week because I think the storm was one of those things. No, politically I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
I started a thread about this and the WH libs were surprisingly silent on the issue.
