Dick Morris: Romney by a Landslide: 325 – 213

Romney is going to sweep them, and end up with 55% to Obama's 45% of the national vote, if not an even wider margin.

Dick Morris

It’s refreshing to see a guy willing to bet his career on what looks from this end of the time tunnel to be a gross example of wishful thinking – except that in this case, pundit Dick Morris has been through a few careers already, first as a Republican, then as advisor and campaign manager for Bill Clinton, then as a Republican again, with enough strange and off-color anecdotes to keep an entire lineup of political comics in business.

I believe the above introduction is necessary so that you would go get whatever grains of salt you’ve got left in your political cupboards and rely on them heavily when reading the following predictions. Because, let’s face it, they’re incredibly seductive.

“That’s right,” says Dick Morris, it’s going to be “a landslide for Romney approaching the magnitude of Obama’s against McCain. That’s my prediction.”

Morris contends that Romney will win the McCain states from 2008, as well as Florida, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

In other words, all the baby-blue states Democrats have grown to love and think of as their own (with the exception of Indiana, Virginia and North Carolina) are really pink states. Romney is going to sweep them, and end up with 55% to Obama’s 45% of the national vote, if not an even wider margin.

Morris says that even though the Romney campaign was “brilliant,” as he puts it, the Obama side will lose because of their own mistakes.

The Obama negative ads in swing states were refuted by Romney’s congenial appearances during all three debates. He turned out not to be the monstrous robot they said he was.

Obama never made a convincing defense of his record, other than to say that it was GW Bush’s fault, and he had no vision to sell for the next four years. He didn’t ignite anyone’s imagination. So once people stopped fearing Romney, there was no other reason left to vote Obama.

Obama took too many states for granted, like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. He was misled by his own echo chamber. He should have treated them as swing states and invested heavily there. That’s what Romney did in North Carolina.

Obama looks tired. It’s not only his actual lack of sleep, there’s a sense that the man is used up, that, deep inside, he wouldn’t mind losing this one and go get a much deserved rest. McCain looked that way, four years ago. Bob Dole did in 1996. It’s hard to shake that feeling, no matter how many times he and his circle insist you’re “energized.”

And he looked mean and angry. He started talking about revenge in the last week of the campaign – voting for me is the best revenge, he said (I’m paraphrasing).

(To be perfectly frank, Obama is showing signs of being normal with his subtexted reluctance to do another four years of this hellish chore. I’m not sure that when we say someone is a “political animal” it’s such a big compliment. And yet, we don’t call our leaders “political humans.”)

Benghazi was a terrible mess, a collapse of the Intelligence network in Libya – and Obama should have said so on day 1. And Hurricane Sandy, with all the accolades from Gov. Christie and Mayor Bloomberg, was a very traumatic moment for many millions of Americans who might not be so wild about their incumbent president just now. Both events exposed an incompetence on the part of the Administration. Maybe the Benghazi failure didn’t touch so many voters, but, trust me, Sandy did.

Granted, Obama didn’t come across as callused and aloof as did GW Bush with Katrina, he jumped on his plane and went places right away – but a week later, people are still hungry and without power. You think they have a soft spot for the man at the top?

So, there it is, Dick Morris’s extremely convincing arguments why Team Romney is going to run away with the ball today. Like I said, very seductive…

  1. I pray that Dick is right.

  2. Kenny Hilliard says:

    For Israel's sake I pray so. I am very concerned what Obama will do between Nov 7th and when he leaves office.

  3. I made a baracha today that Romney wins.

  4. it is a bold prediction, but I hope to God he wins…

  5. I also hope and pray that Romney is the winner for America's sake. Romney is a man of substance and achievement, Obama is a creation of the liberal media.

  6. I hope Dick is right. But think about it. McCain lost to Obama in 2008 by a margin of 53% to 47%. a 6% difference. I can't think that any McCain voter would vote for Obama. Therefore, Romney should have 47%. I would think that there are at least 7% voters of the 53% that will switch their vote of 2008 to Romney in 2012. There sure seems like a there are some very dissolutional Democrats and Independents that won't vote for the President.

  7. Bruce Rabin says:

    Dick Morris–isn't he the guy that was sucking a hooker's toes when he worked for Clinton? He's a respectable guy!!

  8. Bruce, I know you're a democrat. How respectable was Clinton? He was the suckee.

  9. Brian Cox says:

    Mr. Morris is right on the money….

  10. Liad Bar-el says:

    Obama will win if he has his friends, the Muslim Brotherhood, count the votes. :-) It's really hard to imagine how Americans can vote for someone who is so unAmerican and so much more Muslim than he is American. If Obama wins, then the world has lost. There will be not only no ME peace but no world peace. Shariah Law will be instituted nation wide and the Islamic jihad (Muslim Brotherhood) will rule.

  11. Mitch M Nadres says:


  12. Justin Stern says:

    Yes, Bruce, that is him. "Dick" is a pretty sick guy.

  13. Bruce Rabin says:

    Yes Clinton was the suckee (how many presidents didn't have affairs when in office? Yet the country did pretty well under Clinton (as did Monica). How do you think John Kennedy hurt his back?

  14. Yori Yanover says:

    Not your ideal Shabbos night dinner guest, and yet, quite insightful. In a few hours he could become president of Fox News or shine shoes in Hoboken — where the scene you described took place.

  15. Justin Stern says:

    I guess we'll see. Problem is both sides see what they want to in terms of polling.

  16. Yori Yanover says:

    There's a phenomenon known as the broken glass effect, when one side would crawl on broken glass to get to the polls and the other not so much. Morris is counting on Republicans hating Obama so much, they would stop at nothing to unseat him.

  17. Mike Keeler says:

    Yori, the chances of Romney winning or Dick Morris being right about anything are about as good as you learning how to spell the name of the last Republican candidate (McCain) or the difference between COMPLIMENT and COMPLEMENT. Accountability matters, in journalism and in politics. Romney has no accountability, he stands for nothing other than himself. That's not seductive, except in that Dick Morris Watergate Hotel hooker sort of way. Ick.

  18. Frankie Lana says:

    Remember in 2008 Obama visited Israel for their support and forgot about Israel after he got elected. Also do not forget at the 2012 Democratic Convention how the democratic supporters booed Israel as Boxer, Feinstein and Schumer watched on. Food for thought!

  19. Mr. Morris has made a career out of outlandish statements (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Morris#Guest_commentator_and_political_prognosticator ). His nose is currently as long as this set of comments….

  20. Alana Gavin says:

    You're an idiot Liad to say Obama is more Muslim than American. Further, one can be a Muslim and fully stand with America.

  21. Bruce Meyer says:

    If this was meant for me…I'm not sure what you're asking! But you ARE getting very obnoxious~~~

  23. Anonymous says:

    When I hear the name Dick Morris, I think of the evening in October 2010 that Morris appeared on the FOX Factor and told Bill O'Reilly that the Republicans would pick up between 60 and a 100 seats in the House of Representatives in the 2010 midterm elections… O'Reilly was incredulous and called him out, noting that the Democrats would have less than 200 representatives in the House, something that had never happened since the 1940's. I think the Republicans picked either 63 or 69 seats that year… so I'm thinking, when Dick Morris speaks, Listen!

  24. Rc Byr says:

    I pray Dick is right. Early polls from Virgina show Obama ahead. Dick called for Virgina to go to Romney?

  27. Victor Martin says:

    You're a dummy.

  28. Colin Axwell says:

    I wouldn't be surprised if you (Alana, Victor) are democrats. They seem to be the name callers these days. Please if you are not, then try to keep from lowering yourself to their level. You can disagree without attacking someone personally…

  29. Anonymous says:

    Yes, I imagine he will issue a steady stream of directives. None of them will help America or Israel.

  30. Dick Morris continues to commit reputational Hara Kiri. Why does he bother? It's so much better to remain healthy of mind and body!

  31. if dip**** wins not much telling what he will do during the lame duct session.obumer is scum of the earth.go mitt.

  32. Eran Spiro says:

    He is a dick head! circumcised too much.. A sick M**** R F****R Let him suck toes. that is what he is good for….

  33. And Obama is going to do four more years of the same….it is not working!

  34. James Wade says:

    Certain economic collapse if oblamer wins….dooom.

  35. Michael Stwertnik says:

    Typically left-wingers vote early in the day, Republicans-Conservatives when they get off work.

  36. Alana Gavin Obama doesn't stand with America. He hates America.

  37. David Shelmerdine says:

    how old are you??

  38. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Hussein Obama will be remembered as a failed leader and relegated to the dung-heap of irrelevance where his acolytes can enjoy the fragrance.

  39. Did he have one to begin with?

Because let’s face it: Hamas obviously can’t defeat the IDF in the field, soldier against soldier

IDF soldier injured in Gaza is evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital.

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel.

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.
