Back in the spotlight, Romney
criticizes Obama (a.k.a. ´Nero´)

Los Angeles Times, by Maeve Reston

For Mitt Romney, there will be no next chapter in politics — at least no third run for the presidency. But in his first post-campaign interview, the former Massachusetts governor did not shy away Sunday from his criticism of President Obama and said he hoped to help the Republican Party regain its footing — from a distance. “I recognize that as the guy who lost the election, I´m not in a position to tell everybody else how to win,” Romney told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. “They're not going to listen and I don't have the credibility to do that anyway. But I still care.

It kills me too, that you are not in the White House, Gov. Romney. Everyday, I think how different things would be.

Gov. Rick Snyder should beg Mitt to return to his Michigan roots and resurrect Detroit from the hellhole it has become with decades of dumbocrat control.

Mr. Romney, hush your mouth and go back home. You should never have been the Republican nominee. You and the Republican head honchos are responsible for Obama. (Okay - those who adore the man have at it. I don´t care.)

The Republicans who sat on their hands because Romney wasn´t conservative enough have a share in the blame... and those Dems who voted multiple times for Obie.

It is the very sharp contrast between having a potus who loves America, and having a potus who hates America.

Some days I think the Misery and Despair of the O. years will never end. It is a gut-wrenching feeling.

Romney is a classy man. Clinton and Obama both were nasty and sniping about Bush. A president needs to be more than a petty gossip.

Romney was the right man to lead us out of the mess we´re in. All of you people who think that one issue politics and his religion made sitting at home the better option have NO right to complain about what we have now.

I have to admit, I really like Mitt Romney. My gut feeling is that he is our natural leader. I like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and others - but Mitt just exudes gravitas and is a financial genius. Somehow, I don´t see his loss to Obama in the same light as Dole´s or McCain´s losses. It is almost like he really won, but was cheated out of the Presidency by our America haters.

Mr. Romney is a natural leader in the FINANCIAL realm. He should be at the highest level dispensing wisdom about the economy. The interview was nice, classy and not meant to have any political meaning. It was a pleasure and I think the twin grand babies were sweet as can be. Congratulations and God bless them.

FTA: "Reflecting on the 2012 campaign, Romney told Wallace that he and his team had not done an effective job reaching out to minority voters, which he called “a real mistake.”"

If those minority voters referred to are conservatives than I´d agree.

Voting ABO was never going to overcome the fraud everyone knew would happen. Romney may have been a nice man, but his treatment of conservatives and his fellow republican candidates was a big red flag that everyone ignored in their fear of Obama.
Romney´s always been a big government gop. When did that ever change? When he said he was severely conservative? When he called out the media bias during the debates and when he disavowed Romneycare? Oh wait...

The power needs to go back to the people. The ordinary, the grass-root, the plain-spoken... the common man (or woman). That is the only way to get this country back.
Every single American has the ability to change what is happening.

I don´t "adore" Romney, but I see no point in criticizing him. I think there are traitors in the Republican camp--such as Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace and the Romney advisor who recently endorsed gay marriage--who are responsible for Obama.

I think it is hysterical that people think if Romney was more critical of Obama he would have won. What part of media control do you not understand? The media got millions of women to vote for Obama because they lied and said Romney was going to take away birth control. Please, someone serious explain what potential candidate would have been effective with people like #3 claiming to be on our side, the blatant lying by the administration on every topic, and a media that Leni Riefenstahl could have only dreamed of.

So Romney is a good man? Perhaps and so what. The voters were looking for a leader not someone to save souls. Amazingly, we had a real unemployment rate in ´12 above 17% but Mr. Financial Acumen still couldn´t make the case for change w/the electorate. Wow, what a wizard. His sycophants will continue to trot out their usual bromides and cliches; voter fraud, media meanies, disloyal conservatives, the latter a reckless slander; because they cannot handle the truth. Romney was a colossally incompetent candidate who stood for nothing and the voters knew it in their bones. Principled conservatives warned of him for years but were vilified. So, at the end of the day, the voters stuck w/the devil they knew.

I´m glad he is speaking out - at last. We need leadership from him and all who have a voice.

I wish him and Ann the best. They came across as good people who got some very bad advice. The country must now pay a price - it´s already hurting.

It´ll hurt even more if the Pubs don´t wake up and hold on to the House in 2014. At some point soon, the damage will be irreversible.

Please, Republicans: stop trying to flirt with everyone at the dance, and dance with those who "brung ya´". I´ve advocated a new party as a "least bad" solution, but "least bad" is still bad. A GOP adhering to conservative principles, with the stones to back them up, is a "good" solution - much to be preferred.

One thing I took away from an Ann Romney comment, "the consultants wouldn´t let Mitt be Mitt." Two elections that consultants have ruined the GOP nominee. Get rid of these guys/ gals whomever they are.
Mitt also said we (GoP) have to meet the needs of minorities to get their votes.How about meeting the needs of the middle class taxpayers, or meeting the needs of all contributing Americans. Do not address race, all a americans need their needs met.

Sorry for the second post, but I have to add that I love,and miss, both Ann and Mitt. I am not in their league but they seem very real to me. I do have differences with some of Mitt´s political positions, but I enjoyed hearing from both of them and wish we had been successful in electing them. God Bless them both, and all of their family. They represent good. We know what is emanating from the WH is not good, it is evil pure and simple.

Beg to differ, but the voters weren´t looking for a leader and that is why we have Obama. If he´s a leader, I´m Marilyn Monroe. Too many of them want Nanny Gov. to take care of them.

Also, I am sure that #3 is just loving Obama since Romney is so terrible in her eyes. I can only think over three more years of this sorry excuse of a president.

From the start of the campaign I felt in my heart and believed that Mitt Romney would not be a winning candidate. Nothing to do with him as a person - but I thought he would go the way of John Kerry and Al Gore, candidates who simply couldn´t make that all0important personal connection. It didn´t help that he seemed wishy-washy on issues of great importance to Conservatives. That did not stop me from voting for him, and I can only begin to imagine the agony of the loss for him and his family. They have my sympathy.

Here´s what I want to know: where was the GOP leadership/ strategists/ spokespeople during the previous 4 years? They sure weren´t trying to catch up to the DNC in terms of building organizational support. I sure wish Mitt had made a few different decisions during the campaign, but I wish even more that sober grown-ups had been in charge of the party itself.

Mittis a fine, decent, honest man. He grew up in America and understands and truly cares about this country. He´s what we needed to save this country from itself. It´s quite sad that we will never experience what a great president he would have been.

Frankly, it is more than tedious to hear all the whining about what Mitt Romney did wrong coming from "fellow" Republicans. He would have been a great President and head and shoulders above the catastrophe we have been looking at for nearly FIVE years. Do any of those "conservatives" take the time to wonder what this country will look like after the reign of obama and his "msm"? Amen, #16, #17, #27, and #30.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them."

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
