The Romney campaign was fleeced by con men from their own party

The campaign invested heavily in untested GOTV mobile software that largely failed to activate volunteers on Tuesday. It was sold and designed by well-connected Republican political firms. Meanwhile the conservative media and consultancy class spun a cocoon about Romney's imminent triumph while the Obama team was outplaying them. What kills me is here was a candidate running on the basic idea that he was a superior manager who could turn the country around. And yet he ran a campaign that was rife with infighting and easily taken in. For much of their history, including their very founding, Mormons have shown a vulnerability to con men. It appears Romney is not immune to that inclination.
