Rich Beeson, the Romney political director who coauthored the now-discredited Ohio memo, said that only after the election did he realize what Obama was doing with so much manpower on the ground. Obama had more than 3,000 paid workers nationwide, compared with 500 for Romney, and hundreds of thousands of volunteers.
“Now I know what they were doing with all the staffs and offices,” Beeson said. “They were literally creating a one-to-one contact with voters,” something that Romney did not have the staff to match.
What the @!$%# did he think the Obama staffers were doing? And if Romney's staff and volunteers weren't creating one-to-one contact with voters (also known as "door knocking" and "phone banking"), what the hell were they doing?
And why didn't the Romney campaign have the staff to match? Team Red had more money than Obama, and Romney ended the election with $12 million in the bank because they had run out of places to spend money!
