Human-Toad Hybrid Dick Morris: “Wake Up White People!”

Dick figures it out
Wingnuts • Views: 21,756

Toe-sucking human-toad hybrid Dick Morris is still trying to figure out why Romney lost, and he’s finally starting to get a handle on it. Bottom line: “Wake up, white people!”

Now that all the data is in, the fundamental reason for Romney’s defeat is apparent, if largely unreported. It is not just that blacks, Latinos, and single women showed up in record numbers at the polls. It’s that whites didn’t.

The final numbers suggest that 91.6 million votes were cast by whites — seven million less than the 98.6 million that were cast in 2008! Meanwhile, 16.6 million blacks voted — 300,000 more than in 2008; 11 million Latinos voted — 1.7 million more votes than were cast by Hispanics in 2008.

We lost because whites stayed home!

Yeah - it wasn’t that the voters rejected the right wing agenda, it was a simple case of not enough white people! Because everyone knows that all Caucasians are wingnuts, right?

But wait. Maybe it wasn’t the sleeping white people. Maybe it was — Hurricane Sandy! Yeah, that’s it! The hurricane put all the white people to sleep!

Why didn’t whites vote and why didn’t we all spot it sooner?

Impact of Sandy.

There was no good national polling after Sandy struck. Gallup, for example, suspended its polling. At the last minute, it put together a national sample ’ with lots of disclaimers about the dangers of inaccuracies due to the difficulty of sampling storm-hit areas ’ and it showed a slight Romney lead.

Romney was, in fact, leading before Sandy and that his chances blew away in the storm with its famous bipartisan photo of Governor Chris Christie with Obama. And there was no way to measure the impact of Sandy since there could not logistically be any polling. Why was I wrong? I’m a pollster, not a meteorologist!

“Damn it Jim! I’m a Fox News shill, not a real pundit!”

But wait. Maybe it wasn’t the hurricane. Maybe it was — BAIN!

But the real question is why the support for Romney among whites was so shallow that the winds of Sandy blew it away. The answer lies in the fundamental strategic mistake the Romney campaign and the super PACs made in June and July ’ of not answering Obama’s Bain Capital attacks.

These withering attacks undermined Romney’s standing among white voters and led directly to their diminished turnout. The Romney campaign and the Super PACs were so wedded to their attack ads that they failed to realize that Bain posed a mortal threat to the credibility of their candidate.

And so we come full circle, back to “Wake up white people!” Wheels within wheels within endlessly spinning wheels. Dick Morris is clearly plugged in to the Fox News audience — racist and unapologetic, with the IQ of a blue soap dish.

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

When Evangelicals Were Pro-Choice - GOPlifer
Jamelle Bouie had a great piece at Slate last week explaining the long strange journey of Protestant Evangelicals from pressing for the expansion of abortion rights to vehement opposition to nearly every aspect of women's reproductive choices. Bouie correctly identifies the trend, but he misses an important pivot point that calls the rest of his analysis into question. Bouie correctly points out that ...
