In response to Thesemenarecowards's comment:
The level to which the FoxNews crowd insulated itself from the reality of this election left them delusional about the likely outcome. Clearly they need to re-read the chapter in the bible that explains polling and sample size.
Anyone who looked at the polls knew that Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, Iowa, and Pennsylvania did not really ever appear to be going to Romney. In 2 straight election cycles, Rasmussen, has missed badly when favoring GOP candidates. The FoxNews crowd would take outlier polls from right leaning sources and pretend they were more valid than all the other polls.
It was so evident with Rove on election night. He had believed his own falsehoods for so long he was astounded when they didn't come true. Of course the great part of that whole Rove debacle was that in the end Obama didn't even need Ohio to win. You want Ohio Karl? I'll let you have it.
What they lack is the expereince some of us have here, thatis, living behind enemy lines.
Ad BTW: no need to take a wack at christians with your bible reference. If it bothers you so much, why don't you start a referendum to ban it?
The Bible reference is because the FoxNews crowd was relying on "belief" leading up to the election, while the Left had facts.
Kind of like the climate change debate.
