The Hail Mary tells the story of Mitt Romney's desperation moves to win the presidency. Romney's initial strategy was to focus on the economy. When that did not work, Romney made a Hail Mary pass to Paul Ryan as V.P.
Romney's strategic error was to keep playing to the Right Wing base even after winning enough delegates to nail the nomination.
Romney-Ryan adopted the Big Lie strategy.
