If Mitt Romney loses the general election there are many different narratives in play for his loss. Here's just two.

1) Mitt didn't run as a true conservative.

Conservatives have been yelling at Romney and this meme for a while now and it's the most common excuse used by Cons. And the new one.

2) Chris Christie blew the election for Mittens because he became Obama's Greek column during Hurricane Sandy.

#2 has real legs now because Rupert Murdoch has thrown down the glove in a tweet. You all know the glove so smell the glove.

@rupertmurdoch Thanks Bloomberg right decision.@now Christie, while thanking O, must re- declare for Romney, or take blame for next four dire years.

How dare the Governor do the unthinkable and praise President Obama for his quick response to Hurricane Sandy? OK, WTF does it mean to re-declare to Romney? There's a few days left before the election so his praise of O is probably inconsequential, but not to the diehards. If Obama wins reelection it will be fun to watch conservatives roast the anointed one. However, in a couple of years the fan boys will be back on board Christie's magic carpet ride once again. See, Conservatives forgive their own, Democrats do not.
