More On Faith Based Politics

From Capitol Hill Blue:
Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was so confident of victory against President Barack Obama that he spent $25,000 for victory fireworks, had already drawn up a list of White House appointments and took it easy on election day when his opponents were still working hard to get out the vote.

Political insiders tell Capitol Hill Blue that Romney didn’t think he could lose and was genuinely “shell shocked” when he lost the Presidential race in an electoral vote landslide to Obama.
And:
The GOP nominee’s campaign advisers convinced themselves that the polls showing a close race were flawed and that the “true electorate” would give give Romney at least 330 electoral votes.
As they say, faith is believing is true even though you have no evidence to support it.

Interestingly, Maureen Dowd has a column that speaks directly to this issue. She suggests that if Tea Partiers were actually able to return us to the America of the founding fathers, then Mitt Romney would have won the election (that is, if only white male landowners could vote).
