Where´s Mitt? In warm,
sunny California

NBC News, by Peter Alexander & Matthew DeLuca

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/21/2013 2:41:52 PM

It’s chilly on the Capitol steps today, but that’s no problem for Mitt Romney. The former Republican presidential contender is spending Inauguration Day at his home in La Jolla, Calif., where it’s sunny with a forecasted high of 73 degrees. An aide told NBC News that the former Massachusetts governor and his wife have "no big plans." Asked if the governor was likely to watch the inaugural ceremonies today, the aide said, "Doubtful." It’s not surprising that Romney is keeping himself far from the fanfare and tri-color bunting; he’s kept a low profile since losing the election in November.

"Romney’s son Tagg told The Boston Globe in December that his father was never really all that into winning the nation’s highest office anyway."

Therein lies the problem.

Baloney, #1. Tagg meant that Mitt Romney´s life would go on if he lost. He had a life before and he has a life after, but he gave us his best effort. The wrong man was inaugurated today.

Craven politicians are the problem. The country needs more people like Mitt Romney who answer the call out of a sense of patriotism rather than a desire to see themselves on TV 24/7.

I do believe Romney wanted it (the son may have said that out of modesty, or saving face). I also believe that the Romney family may decide to have a second base in an economically freer place like Uruguay, Chile or New Zealand which also have a high percentage of Mormons in the population. They probably feel less than welcome to stay in the new collectivist America.

He is not spending this time in his home states of Michigan, Utah or Massachusetts. He is living in Southern California and ignoring the government. I have to agree with his son´s assessment that he didn´t really want to be President.

Of course he wanted it. He wasn´t a power-mad demagogue. That´s the difference.

Adlai Stevenson had a point when he said that wanting the presidency disqualifies you for it. Remember what a frenzy Al Gore was in to win?

Oh hogwash that he didn´t want to be President. It is hard to beat someone that is grounded in fraud and freebies. My assessment is that Mitt thought the good people would win over the corruption. Not so. This administration knows how to be very, very good at corruption. Look at Obama´s home base.

Mitt would have been proud and honored to be the President of the USA. Oh, and humbled. Enough said.

The GOP ran its very best candidate. (If there was someone better - that person wasn´t running.) Mitt campaigned hard. But it is difficult to win when you have against you The Press, an opposition party with absolutely no compunction not to cheat (I have seen it for myself), Whites on a guilt trip (who ´surprisingly´, locate themselves in all-white states - VT, ME, OR) or at least in all-white neighborhoods (´uh, it´s for the better schools´´).

Mitt is not really in a position to ´lead´ the party now. He holds no office - unlike previous losers like McCain or Kerry. If he can accomplish any good at this stage it will probably have to be in the background.

Predictably Willard´s pom-pom gang will man the barricades w/their embarrassingly lame excuses whenever this feckless loser is the subject; just as they did during the primaries.
Suggest Romney stay permanently in Cal along
w/a political soul mate like Arnie; twin poster boys for the what the GOP has become; a dying party led by gross incompetents.

Nov. 6 should have been a total landslide for Mitt or any other for that matter. That day proved that America is broken. I don´t know if even Reagan himself could have won. May God help America.

Pearls before swine.
America chose a fraudulent Marxist usurper over a successful husband,
Father and businessman who had all the skills to restore America.
The takers union thugs and fascists prevailed -for now.
This is a sad day for America and the Free World.
I fear worse is to come.
Benghazi, fast and furious and Algerian massacre are only the beginning.

#2 is right. I hope, hope Tagg will keep his lip buttoned to reporters from now on. At this point, there is nothing that can be said that won´t be twisted in an insulting way by the press. That said, #13 tells the truth about the nation.

Anyone that thinks Romney didn´t really want the office should just ask his primary opponents. They will tell you differently. Right now America is like an alcoholic. We will refuse to change until we hit rock bottom, and that bottom is coming at us pretty fast.

Perhaps mitt is silently preparing to financially destroy the pied piper and the conga line of progressives he leads into the abyss.
At least Mormons do know how to keep stores and feed their poor and hungry.
If they are lucky maybe they will extend that kindness to the spiteful ABRs too.

Mitt and Ann Romney are great people and we would benefit from their service.

Need we note that instead, we have a Wannabe Kommie Dicktater who hates us,
the constitution, and America itself.

Warm weather is very appealing this time of year.
Having lived in DC a number of years and in Southern California almost as many years,
I´d take La Jolla over the District any day.

Mitt´s way ahead of the crowd, as always.
Personally I prefer that he run again next time.

Skip Iowa. Win New Hampshire. You´re on your way.
Great organization and support just waiting.
More youthful than Reagan at same age.
A wealth of experience in many fields.
And a fantastic campaigner who works very hard. Aced the debates all year.

America will be aching for mature, outstanding, responsible leadership
by 2016.
Cain´t hardly wait!

What #23 and all other commenters wrote about Mitt Romney "not wanting to be President". Ridiculous. Not sure why Tag said that, but I agree with #2. I´ll check later to see if it´s safe to turn the tv back on today. Listened to "oldies" on the my transistor radio yesterday. Felt much better!

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

HealthCare.gov transactions fail

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups. Mr. Cochran, who has raised less than $1 million

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I
