Dick Morris issues more excuses

Dick Morris keeps piling on the excuses for his woeful Romney-landslide prediction. Here’s the growing inventory of limp reasons for missing the story so massively:

1) It was the storm;

2) It was the turnout;

3) It was the media;

4) It was circumstances: When the prediction was issued, it was right; it just got wrong before the election actually occurred;

5) It was Dick Morris: “I spoke what I believed,” he tells Sean Hannity in the clip above.

Morris, however, reveals perhaps the real reason for the errant soothsaying: “I called it as I saw it from the polling and I did the best I could. I also worked very hard for Romney.” Sounds like a pretty serious conflict of interest.
