The defeated GOP candidate famously disparaged Obama as the candidate of the 47 percent. Now, liberals gleefully view Mitt's final tally as poetic justice.
Liberal schadenfreude is about to reach overdose levels. Just when you thought the dead horse of Mitt Romney's campaign had been beaten more than enough — and most savagely
by members of his own party — Dave Wasserman at Cook Political Report projects
that the final count of the popular vote, which is still ongoing, will show Romney winning 47 percent of the electorate
. In addition to proving that Obama handily
won the popular vote, the final tally makes Romney the official candidate of the 47 percent — a delicious irony, liberals say
, given that Romney infamously claimed that Obama was the candidate of the 47 percent of Americans who "believe they are victims" and are "dependent on government."
