So I'm watching election coverage on Tuesday I heard it said that Romney had no concession speech. He was so confident of victory he didn't write one. Obama had one. He said you never really know what might happen. Not Romney. I kind of just assumed that was bravado. He can't seriously think there's no way he would lose. Come to find out, no, it's true. He's actually that clueless. Cenk covers the story briefly below.
Can you imagine having a president that is this incapable of seeing reality? And it wasn't just him. Paul Ryan is stunned. Stunned? Really? The truth is what they wish it to be.
You can see how they'll react in a few decades when droughts and other environmental destruction that we know will happen if we continue apace on global warming. "Really? All those scientists were right? I can't believe it. I'm shell shocked." You're shell shocked? Hundreds of the most informed people in the world following meticulous scientific methods almost universally reach the same conclusion, and you're shocked? Yeah, they will be shocked.
I realize I continue to beat the same drum here, but it is urgent that humans face reality and equally urgent that we stop listening to the kind of people that refuse to do it. We've got clear evidence of how divorced these people are from reality here. It's pretty amazing. But I can't say I'm shocked.
