According to Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney's eccentric camapign manager, Mitt didn't do all THAT bad on election day. After all, he got a lot of votes!

And oh, by the way, I didn't suck as much as people think either! (the REAL message Stuart wants to convey )

Maybe Stevens can get a job as a dog walker in D.C., but I think his career as a political advisor is over.

What Stevens is really saying in this piece is that Mitt got the votes that MATTER--namely, those making over $50,000 a year. But considering that the median household income in America is right around that $50,000, he is basically reiterating what Mitt pretty much said all along--that half the population is of no concern or interest to them. Romney was fully prepared to be the president for the part of the population that was doing well. Everyone else...meh.

Stevens should have kept his mouth shut and slunk away into the night quietly, rather than to remind us all of the inept and tone deaf campaign he presided over.

Stuart Stevens was on Fox News Sunday and said Mitt would get over 300 electoral votes. Chris Wallace asked him again just to be sure... then Chris Wallace let out a sigh and thanked him for giving his last interview on Fox.

apologies... I thought it was Stevens but it's his campaign director. Unfortunately this one cuts off before Wallace thanks him for his first interview on TV... which I think was a dig meaning it would be his last due to the unrealistic prediction.
