The President should apologize [View all]

for not having the good manners to lose.

According to Rove:

He was behind "voters suppression." Never mind that so many Republican legislators were behind all the photo ID laws, tampering with early voting and unpreparedness for the polls.

He spent so much more than Romney - yeah, after the Republicans and their justices gave us Citizens United. And Sheldon Adelson, and the Kock monsters.

He attacked Romney personally. Oh, no one ever went after Obama: the monkey jokes, the watermelon jokes, both he and Michelle as angry blacks, the birthers - all the attacks from which the Romney campaign never tried to distance itself.

One has to wonder whether Rove actually believes in this nonsense or, as Meghan-what's-her-name-and-spelling asked whether it is just a self-preservation. (I don't watch Fox, but that story on the Daily Show was priceless).

Add to this the stories about no concession speech, ready with fireworks; a campaign or, at least, a candidate completely clueless about the possibility of a loss and one has to imagine - shudder - a Romney administration where groupthink rules. For the younger ones - this is what was happening in the White House that led to the Bay of Pigs.
