“Romney cheerleaders: Living in an alternate reality?”


THE LAST WORD WITH LAWRENCE O’DONNELL

by Nick Ramsay

If you paid attention to conservative pundits and politicians leading up to the elections, it’s like they were living in a different reality. Polls meant nothing and there was simply no possibility the president could get re-elected.

But the results on Election Day served as a Rewrite to those pundits and politicians.

On Friday’s special edition of The Last Word, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell highlighted some of those who predicted a major Romney victory:

  • Karl Rove: “I think Romney gets 279 to 281 or 286 in the Electoral College.”
  • Newt Gingrich: “My personal guess is you are going to see a Romney landslide, 53% plus in the popular vote, 300 electoral votes plus. And we may come very close to capturing control of the Senate.”
  • Rush Limbaugh: ”You know, all of my thinking says Romney big…it’s not even close. Three hundred-plus Electoral Votes for Romney.”
  • Glenn Beck: “321 votes!! That’d be great, which would be a mandate, giant giant spankin’ — that’s huge!”
  • Dick Morris: “Romney will win in a landslide.”
  • Gov. John Kasich: “Honestly think that Romney is going to carry Ohio.”
  • Sen. Rob Portman: “Once this election’s over and I believe Mitt Romney is going to win Ohio and, therefore, I think he is likely to be our next president.”
  • Dennis Miller: “I think Mitt Romney’s winning. I don’t believe the polls. I don’t believe the hacks. I think he’s in great shape.”
