The Most Ridiculous Republican Excuse Of All

Right now, Yahoo! is front-paging a piece from the WSJ’s Sara Murray and Patrick O’Connor that says Romney lost because his campaign didn’t have enough money and so he had to take time out from swing-state campaigning to fundraise in safe states.

Of course, the story takes no account of the massive cash spends made by GOP super-PACs on Romney’s behalf.

Also, if Mittens hadn’t been so poor, he would never have been fundraising at tens of thousands of dollars a plate in a California mansion, and so never would have been caught by the help making his infamous “47%” remarks…

So Romney lost because he was too poor, or too unlucky in his host’s choice of flunky, or something.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
