Wow, I never knew Glenn Beck and the Blaze could be so funny.

Two days before the election, they delivered a list of 7 Republican Hacks who thought Mitt Romney would win in a landslide. Their predictions, read the weekend after the election will just make you smile.

The comments, well enjoy.
 

The Blaze has all of the crazy, all in one place.

Links to the original articles for those who do not want to visit Beck's cesspit.

1. CNBC host Larry Kudlow. Pure Kud.

2. Joe Scarborough. Truly scarred analysis, that basically said nothing more than Mitt Romney will win or even President Obama may win. (That's journalism?)

3. "Strategist Karl Rove", Turd blossom extraordinaire.
“In addition to the data, the anecdotal and intangible evidence–from crowd sizes to each side’s closing arguments–give the sense that the odds favor Mr. Romney. They do. My prediction: Sometime after the cock crows on the morning of Nov. 7, Mitt Romney will be declared America’s 45th president. Let’s call it 51%-48%, with Mr. Romney carrying at least 279 Electoral College votes, probably more.”

4). "Columnist" George Will.
This just requires the original video for the schadenfreude

5. Dick the Dick writing for The Hill

“Reasonable voters saw that the voice of hope and optimism and positivism was Romney while the president was only a nitpicking, quarrelsome, negative figure. The contrast does not work in Obama’s favor. His erosion began shortly after the conventions when Indiana (10 votes) and North Carolina (15) moved to Romney (in addition to the 179 votes that states that McCain carried cast this year).
Then, in October, Obama lost the Southern swing states of Florida (29) and Virginia (13). He also lost Colorado (10), bringing his total to 255 votes.And now, he faces the erosion of the northern swing states: Ohio (18), New Hampshire (4) and Iowa (6). Only in the union-anchored state of Nevada (9) does Obama still cling to a lead.
In the next few days, the battle will move to Pennsylvania (20), Michigan (15), Wisconsin (10) and Minnesota (16). Ahead in Pennsylvania, tied in Michigan and Wisconsin, and slightly behind in Minnesota, these new swing states look to be the battleground.”
Bonus his Senate prediction
“The most likely outcome? Eight GOP takeaways and two giveaways for a net gain of six. A 53-47 Senate, just like we have now, only opposite. Barack Obama’s parting gift to the Democratic Party.”
6. "Columnist" Micheal Barone, one fundamentally flawed prediction.

Your bonus Glenn Beck via Right Wing Watch. Remember, a 321 - 217 defeat is a mandate and a spanking.

Additional Bonus; the comments.

271 would work just fine, but 300+ would shut the Democrats up for a while.
300 works as a mandate for the GOP but not for President Obama?

what credible sources? CNN, NBC, ABC, NYT? These are hardly credible sources and haven’t been for years. How about Unskewedpolls.com? They are predicting well over 300 electoral votes for Romney. Gallup has had him in the lead for months and Eric Holder threatened them with lawsuits if they didn’t change their methodology to mirror that of those who have been oversampling dems the entire election cycle.

Don’t worry, you will see all much more clearly come Tuesday. You’ll be able to go to sleep early knowing that come January President Romney will steer this ship back into port safely.

The demon rats will bitch moan whine yell and scream like little punks for 8 years, 24/7 if they loose.
Plan on it. Your best defense against this is to take an axe to your TV and never own one again. Free yourself of hundreds of hours a year to do worthwhile things, like I did.
Of course the threats of civil war and the not so veiled threats against the President:

I still wonder what happens if the boy king does not conceed? I know he has 1,000′s of attorneys ready to contest all election results from coast to coast. This is going to be ugly. Hopefully Alan West has a special ops team ready to go claim our White House back!

I think there will be a revolution in this country that we have not seen since the original American Revolution. The people will NOT stand for that. He will go quietly or we will throw him out by force!
Good News for John McCain.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
