  •  no, i don't think most of them knew (16+ / 0-)

    i think they were in denial.  which is kind of the problem with conservatives in the first place.  they won't accept clearly knowable facts that they don't want to accept.  whether it's the fact that Obama was winning for months or that humans are causing climate change or that trickle down economics is a fantasy.  what they think is faith is just denial of reality.

    so long and thanks for all the fish

    •  I know one thing they really had no clue about... (6+ / 0-)

      and either did we, if truth be told; and that is the fact, in the end, that endless stream of unspecified money we on the left were incessantly worried about... would essentially become the Romney campaign's undoing.

      That fact becomes evidently clear by the cited article and the general post-mortem of the campaign.

      Sheldon Adelson, Foster Freeze and all the other big money donors were victims of a con job, the likes of which we may never see again.

      •  Karl "The Grifter" Rove Got His Fair Share (0+ / 0-)

        Karl Rove and his American Crossroads/Crossroads GPS did very well at the feeding trough. Looks like the Billionaires want their money back.

        They all missed the sure sign of a scam, "If it sounds to good to be true, it's probably a scam." Whooda Thunk!

        I'm curious how much money was "Off The Books" moved around in the off-shore accounts allegedly used for highly illegal activities like electronic vote fraud and other schemes which the greedy duped ones will never report.

        The leaks of possible activities like that were probably part of selling the con job, which prompted the threat from Anonymous posted on YouTube against Karl Rove.

        It was funny watching him perpetuating his doctored polls to the bitter end when Ohio was called on Faux News.

        Even funnier knowing that Mittens was duped as well, This may very well be the end of the Romney Family's Multi-Generation Legacy of Failed Presidential Campaigns. Hopefully it spares us from having the GOP run any of his Lucky Sperm Club Spawn....

          HIMSELF for the last 4 years of "heavy lifting"?

          This year, I'm doing something I've never done before - I'm voting a straight Democratic ticket
