Michael Moore: Mitt Romney Will Win In November


Filmmaker Michael Moore joined HuffPost Live Thursday and predicted that the influence of money in politics would lift Mitt Romney to victory over President Barack Obama in November.
"Mitt Romney is going to raise more money than Barack Obama. That should guarantee his victory," Moore told host Josh Zepps. "I think people should start to practice the words 'President Romney.' To assume that the other side are just a bunch of ignoramuses who are supported by people who believe that Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs 6,000 years ago is to completely misjudge the opposition."
Moore said he believes that if the election were conducted "American Idol"-style, and Americans were able to vote from their couches, Obama "would win hands down."
"That's not what's gonna happen," he told Zepps. "This election's going to be decided on who gets out the most people that day. Who's up at four in the morning, making sure that dozens, hundreds, thousands of people in their communities are getting out to vote. And the Republican machine that is set up and the money behind it to guarantee [what] is really the only important thing -- turnout on that day -- that's what looks pretty scary here."
Whatever you think about Romney's economic or foreign policy, it is difficult to overlook the fact that he is a member of a group (I won't say "cult") that believes totally insane things about the universe.  For this reason, I started my educational series on Romney's religion, beginning with What does it mean to be a "true believing" Mormon?, and continuing with Magical Mormon UnderwearThe Mormon Corporate EmpireMormon Racism, and Sumerian Submarines and Other Absurdities, and The Rotten Fruits of Mormonism.
