The campaign insiders discuss how a race that was close the entire time was decided before the night was over, opine on moments that defined the campaign and comment on events that decided the election's outcome.
LeBoutillier had some strong words for Romney and other Republicans who did not condemn him for the infamous 47% tape.
"There's more to it than just the video itself," LeBoutillier said about the 47% video. "It's the reaction by other Republicans when it came out, how few of them -- and I'm not just talking about elected officials, I'm talking about people in general -- who did not condemn this. And it fits a pattern that I see that has to change, which is Republicans have to like the American people. They have to want to like our fellow citizens. Yes, you can disagree, but you got to like each other and be likable. We can not be a nasty party that has nasty opinions of our fellow citizens. We're losing -- we've lost five of the last six presidential races in the popular vote. If that's not a warning of what's happening, that we have to change our fundamental ways as a party, we're going to keep losing.
