Mitt Romney Says Bill Clinton Told Him Hurricane Sandy Won Obama Election
ABC News ^ | 11-15

Posted on 11/15/2012 1:49:12 PM PST by Arthurio

–Romney says president Bill Clinton called him after the election and said he might have won if not for Hurricane Sandy. Romney: “I spoke with president Clinton the day before yesterday, he called and spent thirty minutes chatting with me. He said a week out I thought you were going to win. And he said, but the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan, and you know he got a little more momentum, and of course he also said that when he was watching Ann speak at the Republican convention, he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party. So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted.”

Sandy didn’t keep 3 million McCain/Palin voters from the polls on election day.

Hurricane Sandy? Is that what they are calling voter fraud now?

No. Weak and spineless people won Obama the election. No longer is America made up of the men and women that Won WW1 and WW2 and survived the Great Depression.

Voter/election fraud succeeded. Nobody won the election and the American people lost.

Bill Clinton spends a month calling Mitt a liar and then this. Mitt calmly takes his call and tells reporters about it as though it’s just a part of the game. Vote all you want but don’t kid yourselves. These people do not believe a word they say, Not Bill, Not Obama and not Romney. It’s all a game to them; the anger that they show in public is to show the people their on their side but in reality it’s all bogus

Agreed. Do people not have core values any longer? They see someone looking like they are “presidential”, and that removes 4 years of failure, complete with a disastrous economy? How shallow can people be? Very discouraging. I still haven’t been able to watch Fox or listen to Rush, or even Laura Ingraham since this terrible election.

win this election, yea had nothing to do with a rigged eelction and 4 years planning by the Chicago machine, and Holder and a racist DOJ.

Lets not forget the media which has not covered this rigged eelction, what is going on now in south FL in a Dem county and a 1000 votes stuffed in a bag just found.
Or a media which never covered fast and furious, Libya, debt, spending, corruption.

Then yes Christie thinking about his run in 2016.

Oh and racist blacks who can only get out when they see the non white guy and then there is the welfare layabout.

not missing anything.
Talk radio minus a few won;t mention the rigged election. for fear of being called a name.
The GOP won;t mention it because they want to move on and reach out.
Some on our side won;t mention the rigged election or what is going on right now because they too don;t want to be called a nasty name off the media the poor souls, all about them not the country today.

Yep. Kind of like the dimwit dumbasses in Missouri, North Dakota and Indiana, who voted with their "lady parts" instead of their brains to re-elect, elect and elect (respectively) Obama rubber stamps to SIX year terms because their GOP opponent said something stupid.

Its as if one stupid statement made in the course of a heated campaign means more than SIX years worth of stupid actions.

Thanks, jerks, for jumping through the hoops that our enemedia wants you to jump through. You might as well sign your brain over to them.

I agree. We need to form a party and nominate him right now for 2016. Why waste time and money on a primary so the leftist media can tear our candidates down. He could spend the next 4 years as a sort of President-in-Exile harassing The Won and causing Leftists to have weak bowels whenever he walks up to a microphone.

For what it’s worth, the final results will likely show Romney/Ryan got as many or more votes (current tally shows an 800k vote deficit from McCain/Palin’s final vote). Don’t know any that switched to Obama - know some that went the other way to Romney. It was a perfect storm -

1. Sandy made some that may have held back from voting at all more comfortable with the idiot. Can’t help people who are so short sighted.
2. Romney’s reliance on Orca to implement his GOTV strategy was a dismal failure - whether by sabatoge or simply being untested. Finally,
3. Romney’s and the Republican party’s reluctance to aggressively fight fraud.

The fraud by itself really is an issue that should be investigated, but likely won’t. At this point, if the fraudulent vote was enough to overturn the result - the riots would be beyond anything we have ever seen. Romney appears to be playing Nixon 1960 for the sake of peace. Problem is this peace could be fairly shortlived, considering the current attitude of the Revenger in Chief.

I doubt it. Consumer sentiment was still rising on election day and the unemployment rate falling. That all should change in a couple of months so it’s a matter of “a day late and a dollar short”. Unfortunate — particularly for the sheeple who voted for Obama.

If true, then America is already doomed.

The stupidity of the populace is now so massive I don’t believe we can recover.

It’s either back to the local, county and state level to fix this crap or leave the country.

I’m thinking Costa Rica or Panama.

I think WW2 actually destroyed this country. That generation was so traumatized they decided their children wouldn’t want for anything.

Thus they coddled their little brats that became left wing jerks in the late 1960’s. We’ve been going down hill ever since. They’ve helped to create the massive growth of centralized government.

Those are the people who voted for Obama four years ago. They aren't willing to admit that they were wrong yet. Some never will. For others it will take more than four years to get the message.

After all he is alright, he keeps his job and friends with power and influence.

Probably correct...there is no way to know for sure, but I would say without the hurricane Romney would have won. The polls all started moving back in Obama’s direction after that. It probably had no effect on 98% of those who voted, but that 2% was all it took. It wasn’t just the photo op and Christie’s over the top, gushing endorsement of Obama’s action, but also the fact Romney and his campaign were completely blacked out of any media coverage...it was all Obama, with no one paying any attention to Romney at all.
