Former senior Romney adviser Dan Senor (pictured, left) says it’s “stunning” how some surrogates preened for top positions when they thought he’d win and now they’re throwing him down the stairs.
“I won’t mention their names, but they’re talking about Romney like he’s Reagan. You know, ‘The debate performances were the best debate performances of any Republican nominee in presidential history. This guy–he’s iconic.’ They were talking about him because they believed he was going to win in four or five days,” Senor said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“In fact, some of them were already talking to our transition to position themselves for a Romney cabinet,” he added.
Still not naming names, Senor said the tone dramatically changed in the days following Romney’s loss, as many top GOP leaders conducted post-mortem analysis of the campaign.
“I won’t say who they are. They know who they are. They were on television. I mean, it was unbelievable. It was five, six days later, (they were) absolutely eviscerating him,” he said.
