Dick Morris on flubbed prediction: ‘I did the best I could, and I also worked very hard for Romney’

Video Screen Shot

The still amazingly employed by Fox News pundit, Dick Morris showed up on Hannity last night one week after his election predictions were found to be excessively flawed to offer more excuses to why he was so drastically incorrect.

Hannity confronts the pundit with the following: “People are furious with you right now, and you probably know it”.

Morris, replies that he’s not sure they are furious and makes the interesting statement, “I did the best I could, and I also work very hard for Romney”.

He then offered his litany of excuses of why he was wrong- no polling during the storms, demographic turnouts, and Benghazi becoming a non-issue “made him wrong”.

Fox News, still no “pink slip” for Morris?

    One day after having his contract not renewed by Fox News Channel, Dick Morris says it was his bad political judgment that got him canned.

    “I was fired because I was wrong. I was wrong and I was wrong at the top of my lungs,” Morris told CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Wednesday.

    On his first appearance on CNN in over a decade, the former FNC contributor still insisted his opinion that Mitt Romney would win the Presidential election was correct – until Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.

    “The real issue is why did Mitt Romney lose? The real answer is the storm,” Morris told Morgan.

  2. DICK responds says:

    “The Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said. And at the time that I said it, I believe I was right.”

    Morris on O’Reilly

    I plead guilty, I goofed, I made a mistake. I under-counted the minority turnout and women and young people, single women. I thought that the 2008 turnout was a fluke. I think on your program many times I said that if the turnout is what it is in `08, then the polls are accurate and Obama is going to win. But they are not. And I said you need to average ’04, ’06, ’08 and ’10 and take the average so that you get rid of the outlier. Well it turned out not to be an outlier. That it turns out to be a trend.

    The average said that 11 percent of the vote was black. In fact, it was 13. The average said eight percent Latino in fact it was 10. The average said 17 percent under 30, in fact it was 19. The average said 16 percent single white women. In fact, it was 18.

    When you take those together, you are dealing with a six to eight point move in the demographics most of which went to Obama. So when I predicted that Obama would lose by five points, Romney would win by five and in fact, Obama won by one. That’s a six point move and that’s because I got the demographics eight points wrong.

    So Morris admits that he is a boldface liar and fraud? Thanks Dick.

    Attention FOX: If you keep Morris on the air, you are admitting that you are LIARS and misleading Americans.
