Segment 1
Cenk hosting today. CBS News story of how the Romney campaign was shell shocked about the loss; no one in the campaign even thought for a second that they could lose. Of all the polls, PPP is the one that was #1 for accuracy, with DailyKos and SEIU coming in at #2. Videos of O’Reilly and Limbaugh, lamenting that we’ve lost the country to new demographics. Even Sean Hannity said that he has changed his mind on immigration; that we should have a path to citizenship. Cenk goes over the many ways Conservatives voiced their displeasure with how the campaign was run.

Segment 2

Examples of Democrats already giving away their leverage. VIDEO of Axelrod saying that Obama doesn’t have a mandate. The Democrats job is to win elections, but lose to Republicans on the policy debates. Biden hints that they will lower corporate taxes. The Grand Bargain is much worse for progressive ideology than the “fiscal cliff”. VIDEOS of Burton and Axelrod saying that they will do the Grand Bargain.
