Score one.
Not wise to keep bringing him up I dont think.

He understimated the stupidity of the US public.

I think that Mitt seriously thought that people would actually examine Obama's terrible record and act rationally. After all, the US voted Carter out of office for a record that was not nearly as bad as Obama's. Any rational person would have "fired" Obama. However, the US electorate is now made up of idiots who will vote for those who provide handouts.

Right. Like you voting for Romney for example.

Did Romney actually say that the production was going to be shut down in the US? If NOT then he was right on the mark. It doesn't matter whether he already knew. And it still remains to be seen whether US production will be shut down. The first step is to get it "up and running" over there.

You know, Janelle, you and I have sparred on Catholicism over my not wanting to partake because of all the crap I have seen in that organization. In any middle class, and up, suburban Catholic parish, they were practically "instructed" to vote for Romney. Why? The pulpit used peripheral moral issues (abortion and same sex marriage) to overshadow the REAL meat and potatoes of this election: the economy, health care, and security/international affairs. They don't teach priests in the seminary about those topics. Those topics don't have the legalistic bounds they are accustomed to. They would need to pick up an MPA afterward.

Two things, hon:
1) Someone I know coined the term "Mormon Catholic." That is, a WASPy looking Catholic who is financially set, lives in a nice home, breeds like crazy, is a Republican, is dogmatic, is judgmental, and invites the glad handing parish priest to their house, which the priest gladly accepts because he knows what side his bread is buttered on.
2) Mormons view Catholics as enemy #1 and try to pilfer their converts from bored Latin American Catholics who see little hope in their lives. I would NOT have given my vote to Romney had he been Catholic or Episcopalian. That he is Mormon made it absolutely impossible. Kind of sounds like a "Stockholm complex," doesn't it? Taking a more GLOBAL overview, the Catholic vote belonged to Obama.

Don't tell me, you belong to a comfortable, soccer mom parish in which there are Ann Romney-alikes who have their fingers in all the pies, so you could sort of relate to her ... and her husband, right?

Per OP

..."is romney the new Nostradamus"...
