Dan Rather: 'My Gut Tells Me Romney Will Have A Good Day'

Remember when Dan Rather’s gut was telling him that the media elite could no longer be the “gatekeepers” of information from the masses?

Sept. 2010:


Today Rather’s “gut” is telling him that despite all indications (and I use that term loosely) that Obama will win, there’s still this unsettling feeling that Romney could pull this off. Video and transcript below:



Dan Rather: Listen, it’s Obama’s to lose here. He’s probably going to win it. All the polls show one thing going one direction. But it’s election — time for spin and chatter analysis is over. Now the people speak. You can lay out a plan that Romney wins this election, and I’ll be honest with you as I always try to be. 

(Note: Pause for laughter)

Something in my gut tells me that it’s going to be a good day for Romney. But as a reporter, you don’t report your gut. The polls all indicate yes, Obama.

(Note: Pause for laughter, again)
