3. I find it fascinating that they thought they were going to win

 

until they lost Ohio.

All the polls said (except for a few outliers) Romney was going to lose and lose big. Was he really stupid enough to believe his own hype? Is he just sticking with the story "I thought I could win" so he doesn't look, yet again, like a flip flopper? Did he think the rigged voting machines were going to give it to him despite what the polls said? Did he think all the money was enough to buy him the elections without the votes? Did he have plans that he later scuttled to take it to the dancing supremes?

Why would a smart man like Romney think he was going to win when all signs pointed to a huge loss? Romney is a greedy, unethical little weasel but he is also smart enough to read polls. I wish the interview had dug into the why more.

4. Well, there's been a Mormon prophesy that the Republic would be in danger of falling,...

and that a rightous Mormon on a white horse will save it. I guess he thought Rafalca was close enough.

5. OWS - The genius of strategy

In my opinion, after OWS not a single candidate from the republicans could win. the movement became an unstoppable force, the damage is still felt today. Manufactured crisis or legitimate opportunity, it was the difference in the election result. The second largest contributing factor could have been the now infamous 47% comment.
