Dick Morris visited the Hannity show [Monday night] to explain how he got it so wrong with his prediction of a “landslidey” Romney win. After blaming Hurricane Sandy and acknowledging that he got it “dead wrong” about the demographic turnout, Morris made a jaw-dropping admission. That his prediction was designed to help turn around Romney’s failing campaign…
Morris openly admitted his prediction was an election ploy:
“Sean, I hope people aren’t mad at me about it… I spoke about what I believed and I think that there was a period of time when the Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said.” [Pols emphasis] And at the time that I said it, I believe I was right.
Dick Morris, a former advisor to Bill Clinton turned into a relentlessly pro-GOP cheerleader and laughably inaccurate predictor of future political events, was brought to Colorado by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity in September. At the time, Morris was of course confidently predicting a landslide victory on Election Day for Mitt Romney.
They say “fake it ’til you make it,” but as we’ve established, in 2012 they were just…faking it.
