People believed JC because they really wanted to believe.
I doubted the GOP could win since the first moment after the 2008 election.
I stayed that way until the total incompetence of Obama was displayed for all to see in the economic crisis and the Benghazi debacle.
Then Romney was stellar in the debates - showed Obama to be a complete dumbass, without a coherent thought in his head.
I began to have hope that we could pull this off and I will admit that JC was singing a siren's song that was hard to ignore.
When Sandy occurred, I felt it was a setback for our side, giving Obama a spotlight when he needed it most.
I was still hopeful on election day, but when the returns started coming it I just went to bed - knew it was all over.
