After working so hard to re-elect Barack Obama, I was looking forward to a little breathing room. I knew it would be short-lived because of the challenges we are facing as a nation, the fiscal cliff being the most urgent at present. I knew the Republicans would be upset but really, the depth and range and the continuing self-delusion is an astonishing phenomenon to witness.
We got our first hint on election night, when the Romney campaign was sequestered behind closed doors, avoiding the press, trying to process the realization that they had lost. They had the same polling data as the rest of us. Even FOX News was saying it was all over but the concession speech. But those were only FACTS, something that seems to be anathema to a party drunk on its own BS. Rumor was that there was no concession speech, so certain was Governor Romney that he would be the next POTUS. Must have been a particularly nasty task to have to sit down and cobble something together in the face of such denial.
