2. Karl Rove was a big loser. He convinced numerous wealthy donors that if they just parted with hundreds of millions of their hard-earned cheddar, Obama's defeat would be imminent. Oops! Now Rove has lost all credibility as a self-proclaimed king maker, embarrassing himself on Fox News by trying to force the cable news program to rescind its announcement that Obama had won reelection with Ohio. Fox, to its credit, stood its ground, and Rove added self- humiliation to the drubbing Obama gave him and the entire GOP.
3. Wall Street lost big because it bet the bottom dollar on a Romney win. His loss was reflected in the hit the stock markets took immediately after the election. I guess they won't be singing "Happy days are here again", and having a field day with no regulations to check their dangerous manipulation of the economy.
4. The Republican party has now lost two consecutive elections to the "un-American, commie, Muslim from Kenya". Guess America's not drinking their Kool-Aid. Now they will have to do some soul-searching, and figure out why they think they can alienate large swaths of the electorate and skate by on the older white male vote. If you tell Latinos they could be pulled over for looking illegal; if you tell women that when they are raped, it is God's will; if you claim to be fiscally conservative on spending, yet spend millions of dollars to curtail the black vote, and target minority areas, when there is no evidence of voter fraud, why are you shocked when you get the crap beat out of you?
5. Fox News lost because now its viewers will not so readily believe all its hype about who is really winning or losing a political race.If Fox News was trying to make money on a bet, it would be in big trouble right about now. Fox was wrong in saying the polls were flawed. It turns out that those "flawed" polls were uncannily accurate, even Fox's own poll, which showed Obama leading. Fox has, for months, or longer, predicted the political demise of the president, saying that most people think he is a failure, and that Mitt Romey would win big. They bet the farm on this, and had millions of viewers convinced. In light of the "shellacking" they took at the hands of one of the greatest politicians in the modern era, this had to hurt their ego, damage their reputation, and dramatically alter their perception of America.
