Republicans Go To Obama School

At Harvard, GOP staffers sit at Axelrod's feet. “We weren't even running in the same race.”
Zeke Miller

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Demoralized Republicans arrived in Boston Wednesday night for a rare moment in American politics: They came to learn from Democrats.
Barack Obama's campaign schooled Mitt Romney’s in November, something of which the Republicans who gathered at the quadrennial, off-the-record Harvard Institute of Politics Campaign Managers Conference were intensely aware. And while the proceedings of the event are under embargo until the institute releases audio transcripts of the proceedings, some participants shared their reactions.
“We got our butts kicked, so I’m going to school,” said the manager of one 2012 Republican presidential campaign on his way into the sessions on Thursday morning, held in a cozy university conference space.
One Romney aide tried to convince Obama digital director Teddy Goff to join forces with Zac Moffatt, who ran Romney's digital efforts.
The evening-and-a-day conference is the tenth in a 40-year tradition of analyzing winning and losing campaigns. It is, the Institute says, convened “in an effort to allow future candidates, managers, journalists and scholars to better understand the nature of modern presidential campaigns. This year, the line between students and teachers is clear. The Obama team spent much of the morning at the Charles Hotel, and skipped the session at which Romney aides and their Republican primary opponents discussed the bitter nominating process, trading strategies and regrets.

Its funny how people seemed to have forgotton what a rolling disaster the Romney campaign was with the candidate saying one thing only to have the campaign issue a correction a few hours later, the trainwreck tour of Europe, making the theme of their campaign a blatant lie about a quote by Obama,  horrible RNC convention, no ground game in key states, getting totally schooled in the ad buying game, not attacking Obama early in the campaign or even responding t effectively to Obamas attacks, contracting with only one company to register voters and
then having to fire that company weeks before the election due to scandal, etc...

Of course it didnt help that the candidate came across as a elitist, out of touch plutocrat with a shrewish, snobby wife and 5 creepy adult chidren

The only "good" thing Romney did was steamroll an old moderator and a sleepy Obama in the first debate
