It was arrogance.
the only arrogance was on the part of the GOP leadership...and the RINO types Like Linda #'s who thought Mitt was the answer to our prayers.

It wasn't arrogance or an "our turn" attitude by the rank and file voters.

But that being said...it's awfully short sighted in your assessment to not include the complicit media...they were the best free advertising in the campaign for Obama 2012.
