    whose beliefs are as extreme as Paul Ryan's ... there are not enough votes to get Romney to 61%.

    Romney/Ryan live in a bubble. They make the mistake of projecting their beliefs on all people who look like them. That's a fatal error. Most people aren't as cynical and full of hate for President Obama as Romney/Ryan, and that's why they won't get to 61%.

    If the last time a Republican broke 60% of the white vote, was Ronald Reagan 28 years ago in 1984, there is absolutely no way for them to do it in 2012 considering that a much smaller percentage of the electorate is white in 2012.

    For me, Mitt reminds me of Jeff Bridges in Starman. He's like an alien that hasn't read the entire manual. You know, he's going, "Nice to be in a place where the trees are the right size. -- Robin Williams on Letterman 26 Apr 2012
