Irrelevant at this point. Soetoro has enough electorals to carry the election without OH.
A lot of these pundits have destroyed their credibility in this election cycle. I’m looking forward to the day Karl Rove and Dick Morris vanish from the airwaves forever.
So much for him.
They are already gone in my book! I have no interest in listening to a political person for quite a long time.
Barone , Rove and Rush were all dead wrong. I am no longer a Rush Dittohead. He is from another world, culture, and century.
Fox was awful. O’Reilly gave the conclusion of the drama away at 8 o’clock.
Look at those three guys and watch the crowd at obamas victory speech.... we are no longer a majority traditionalist, white, European culture. The GOP needs to wrap itself around a more varying base....
Barone and Morris and Rove were completely wrong.
Silver and the MSM were right.
Intrade was right.
I was wrong.
We were wrong.
I do not know anybody who voted for Obama or Bill Clinton for that matter.
“...The GOP needs to wrap itself around a more varying base...”
The problem with that is Conservatism is NOT about what government can do for people. It is about liberty.
Yup... they are totally irrelevant from here on out... their words mean nothing, NOTHING!!
If it’s Liberty vs Free Shit.....Free Shit will win every time.
Sorry, that base is taken. The Dems have locked them up with promises. Now that they are on the entitlement plantation, they cannot escape. The programs are set up that way - they punish people who try to wean themselves off.
Unless you are suggesting the Repubs try to out freebie the Dems. If so, how will that help? Entitlements will destroy this country, no matter who is giving them out.
We should never ignored the markets and odd-makers. They’re usually almost always right!
And good people like me, Rove, Barone and Morris can get wrong.
Blame us if you like! We made our prediction on the best available data at the time.
The country just didn’t agree with us! I eat crow and accept blame, not for leading people astray, but for always thinking the best of my country.
If you want condemn me for it - so be it! I accept your fury with grace and dignity.
THANK YOU. You're right. Being like the 'RATS would make us no different than the 'RATS.
even if BOR sounded like a racist when he did it
I assume that most of this includes Hispanics.
Did you know that in 2004, 56% of protestant Hispanics voted for Bush? In 2008, 48% voted for McCain/Palin?
Did Rush make a prediction? He did discuss all the anecdotal stuff. I felt the same. I never in a million years thought OFA would get their entire base out like that. Even if Obama won, I thought it would be by picking off Ohio or Virginia. A very concentrated supper ground game. They cleaned up from coast to coast.
