[Hey, I agree with Kos, Mitt Romney was headed for a big loss before the super storm ever arrived. If you look at Nate Silver's charts the big turnaround began (abruptly) with the VP debate. But Republicans are blaming Sandy and the media seems ready to go along. Why fight it?]
Dear Republican friends,
Your man Mitt Romney had all the momentum and looked ready to win the White House. It was practically inevitable. You were right about all those skewed polls. Most of those polling firms lean Democratic because their lead researchers went to college and were indoctrinated there. But your internal numbers were correct, victory was at hand.
And the Obama campaign really was on the ropes and in disarray. Hopping around from state to state with no apparent plan. And the independents were flocking to your side. Republican early voting numbers were miles ahead of 2008 and your efforts to make voting harder appeared to be paying real dividends. And then what happened?
God. God happened.
God saw the President on the verge of defeat and couldn't let that happen. He conjured a giant storm, a super storm if you will, and directed it to a very specific region of the country. A place where two leaders, highly thought of by independents and undecided voters, resided. When the storm crashed upon the shore, God's President took action and won the praise of the two leaders and thus secured his place in history as the first black president to serve two terms (and also one term).
God didn't want Mitt Romney to be president. It's something you're just going to have to get used to. Consider it a test of faith, if that makes you feel better.
