The incredible inside story of how the Romney campaign descended into chaos on Election Day
Even as you read this, there likely are movie producers meeting somewhere to discuss plans for a flick that tells the almost unbelievable story of what happened to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign on Election Day 2012.
The story has everything:
The reckless waste of money on so-called sophisticated technology that turned out not to work;
Foolish denials by top campaign staffers that anything had gone wrong;
Ridiculous claims of impending victory without a shred of evidence to support them;
Tens of thousands of volunteers stranded in scattered locations with no way to transmit data back to campaign headquarters;
Top operatives flying blind without information about developments on the ground;
Problems aggravated by undue secrecy;
Elaborate plans to promote voter turnout coming apart at the seams.
