Cenk brings in Michael “Epic Politics Man” Shure to make a prediction: Is Mitt done? Did his comments at a fundraiser alienate more than 47 percent of American voters? Shure points out that Sen. Jim DeMint seems ready to write off the presidency as a lost cause for Republicans and focus instead on a majority in the Senate. “Mitt Romney’s a drag on his ticket right now,” Shure says. Cenk says, “I’m predicting right now, Crossroads GPS, Karl Rove’s group, the Koch brothers’ groups, etc. will start shifting the money from the presidential race into the Senate and House races. That move is going to be imminent.” If Cenk were Romney? “I’d get on Rafalca and head to the sunset.”
