Now That Election's Over, Newsmax's Ruddy Can Criticize Romney Again
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax's main article on President Obama's re-election seemed to sum up the overall mood at the website: "Obama Hands Romney Bitter Defeat." It seems that author David Patten is projecting a bit.

Newsmax took a couple stabs at trying to downplay the significance of Obama's win -- one article declared, "Networks Victory-for-Obama Reports Echo the 2000 Bush-Gore Debacle." Actually, not so much.

Another article tried to link declines in the stock market to Obama's re-election.

In the end, though, even Newsmax couldn't deny reality, and CEO Christopher Ruddy -- who had jumped on Ronald Kessler's Romney-fluffing train a few weeks prior to the election -- penned a Nov. 7 column seeking to lay blame for Mitt Romney's defeat.

After noting that "Perhaps the easy explanation is that two hurricanes and two betrayals by Chris Christie killed Mitt Romney's chances" -- and labeling Christie as "Iago" -- Ruddy lays out a point-by-point explanation of "why our pilot Mitt Romney and his plan were so flawed."

That gets Ruddy back to  where he was several weeks before the election, prior to his endorsement of Romney, when he was praising Obama's foreign policy and criticizing the way Romney's campaign was being run.
