Bob Cusack, Jane Hall, Amy Argetsinger and Howard Kurtz on the pundits whose predictions of a Romney election victory were off the mark.
At the presidential level I've often wondered "What is more profitable for the news media/pundits/infotainers?" To have someone you're largely aligned with in office or someone you're opposed to in office. In the case of Rush for instance. "Will he make more money with President Obama in office, or would he have made more money if Mr. Romney got elected?"
Republicans need to learn that the Fox News bubble and Rush bubble they live in is not the real world. Republicans don't seem to understand the diversity of opinion in the USA. We have mutliculturalism now. The majority of the country is pro-choice and and now pro-gay rights. The country is tried of the wars of choice that put us into recession. As long as the Republicans are beholden to the Christian Right who want a theocracy and are in decline, beholden to the corporate elite like Wall Street who want no taxes and bonuses, beholden to the military-industrial complex who want a war with Iran, a country of 80 million people, and the billionaires like Willard Romney who don't want to pay their fair share of taxes the country will reject them. I hope Romney realizes his mormon cult religion didn't help him as well in the election. Anyone who can believe the book of mormon, a book Mark Twain called chloroform in print, one can not be taken seriously. Jesus Christ did not preach to the American-Indians and Indians are not descendants of Jews. DNA proves this. There were no gold tablets. Please disband the this cult. The whole mormon cult and also the Christian Right only worry about the collection plate.
