  •  He may have over estimated the level of (8+ / 0-)

    Obama hate in the swing states.  He and swarmy Ryan were condescending toward O and Joe throughout the campaign, no doubt thinking their snark was going universal.  Romney did send one of his sons with a message of love to one of Putin's reps.  Why would he do this if he really didn't think he would win?

    Romney went to France instead of serving in our military, got rich chop-shopping US businesses and eliminating US jobs, off-shored his money in the Cayman Islands, and now tells us to "Believe in America."

    •  All across the right-wing (7+ / 0-)

      I believe that the level and intensity of Obama-hate, or just disappointment with Obama, was overestimated all across the right-wing.  From the elected officials, to the Romney campaign, to the senate campaigns, to the right-wing press/media and to those parts of the corporate press/media who are inclined to accept Republicans as the true rules of America.  (Chuck Todd, David Gregory and the like).

      There are probably several reasons for this, but it is mostly a combination of being blinded by one's own prejudices and spending almost all your time in the right-wing echo chamber.

      I hope they stay there.
