Say what you will, but Mitt Romney the "businessman" was soundly defeated by the "community organizer". The leadership and management skills claimed by the leveraged buyout specialist were clearly not all they were cracked up to be.


I believe that in "Enter the colossus" you start mixing up Boston and Chicago from around:
"Boston was not afraid to squeeze to get more juice. "


About the delusional part of the Romney campaign.

Nate Silver did a simple count from published polls, just like you did. And he got the same results, a win for Obama.

Boston named Orca as the Narwhal killer. So they knew about Narwhal. They should have known who worked on Narwhal and as it was tested before the elections, they should have known that is was powered way beyond the 2008 campaign. They could have guessed that Chicago with a 4 year head start would go far beyond 2008 in every direction. Any reconnaissance (eg, just asking voters) would have made it clear what tactics Chicago was using to get out the votes. And I cannot imagine that Boston did not have some moles inside Chicago.

All these were known facts: Polls showing a consistent advantage for Obama, a massive targeted get-out-the-vote campaign reaching 1 out of every 4 Democrats, a truly massive ground campaign, and the size of Narwhal.

If you know all this, and still are completely convinced that you will win it easily, then you must be delusional.

The only alternative I see is that they were banking on some dirty tricks that did not play out (eg, the secretive voting machine updates in Ohio and the 6 hour lines in Florida).

But whether Romney was delusional or a criminal, both would have made him unfit to be a president.
