The layers of primordial ignorance in this, Dick Morris' latest ass-salvation, could be plumbed by a fifth-grader:
Republicans lost the race, [Morris] says, because they made the same mistake he did when he made his famously wrong prediction about a Romney landslide: Both errors stem from a misunderstanding of America’s demographic changes. When Republicans won in 2010, it was easy to believe things had returned to normal. But the 2012 presidential election showed that the GOP’s electorate model "was wrong, and it was wrong for all times." Latinos, women, and gays are "voters who would like to be Republican," he says. "The Republican party just isn’t letting them."
How was it "easy to believe" that America's thundering demographic changes had suddenly stopped and actually reversed as of 2010? And how could any professional analyst have missed the fundamental, empirical fact of 2010 as rather typical of a presidential incumbent's midterm setback? And how could any analyst have dismissed with such cavalierism the collective authority of countless 2012 polls in Obama's favor?
And just why would Latinos, women and gays "like to be Republican"? Morris doesn't say; he simply asserts they would.
But the singularly inescapable problem for the Republican Party, which of course Morris also evades, is why in heaven's name anyone with even a smidgeon of human decency would for even a minute ponder converting to a political party that is so bone-chillingly typified by the creepy likes of a crawling, sniveling worm such as Dick Morris?
