This is Rush’s first segment from his radio show today where he talks to some degree about the state of the nation via exit polls and why we lost last night. One big note is that less people turned out for Romney last night than did McCain in 2008. That’s pretty stunning.
But Rush refused to make this loss about Romney because he believes the problems we face are much bigger. Even though Romney didn’t run a conservative campaign, he said Romney put forth a vision of traditional America in his own way that was rejected by people who still believe that the economy is George W. Bush’s fault. They also believe they are victims of the rich and that Obama will fix that and apparently a fair amount of them also want Obamacare.
In short, he says it’s difficult to beat Santa Claus.
