Romney’s chief campaign strategist Stuart Stevens is still acting like an idiot. Here he blames Hurricane Sandy for losing the election:
“After the storm, I never had a good feeling. Not that the storm impacted things so much, per se, but these races — a race like this is a lot like an NBA game. It’s all about ball control at the end… We went from having these big rallies around the country to literally sitting around in hotel rooms and there was just nothing we could do about it.”
See, it’s not about rallies or crowd sizes. It’s all about strong leadership. Romney’s response to both Benghazi and Sandy were pathetic and weak. He didn’t need to have big rallies, he just needed to appear as if he gave a shit about these tragic events and the resulting casualties. Instead, he was self-serving and awkward. They didn’t have to sit in their hotel room, but that’s the only thing that occurred to them, hence: not ready for the White House.
