Kessler Isn't Talking About His Wildly Wrong Prediction Of A Romney Landslide
Topic: Newsmax

Dick Morris isn't the only right-wing writer to stake his professional reputation on a Mitt Romney landslide.

On Sept. 4, Newsmax's Ronald Kessler wrote an article called "Why Mitt Romney Will Win Decisively," in which he declared, "My prediction is that Romney will win by 10 to 12 percentage points." On Nov. 6, Kessler reiterated his prediction:

The shift to Republicans in the last congressional and gubernatorial elections, the intensity favoring Romney, and the early voting results on his side — not to mention the state of the economy — are all signs that point to the landslide I have been predicting.

Needless to say, Kessler got it wrong -- President Obama won re-election. But while Morris has issued a something of a mea culpa by admitting he got the election's demographics wrong, Kessler has yet to do so.

Instead, Kessler's first post-election column is dedicated to bucking up Republicans by embracing John Boehner's position on refusing to raise taxes to avoid the end-of-year fiscal cliff. "According to my sources, you can count on this: When Boehner says the Republican-dominated House will not raise taxes on the wealthy, he means it," Kessler wrote.

The question of Morris' sincerity aside, at least he did the walk of shame on Fox News. When will Kessler admit he wrong about a Romney landslide?
