´The family didn´t do enough to help´:
Romney´s sister speaks out about her
brother´s White House defeat

Mitt Romney´s eldest sister has spoken out about his pain at losing his bid for the White House - and has blamed her own family for not doing enough to help him secure a win. Jane Romney, a divorced mother-of-four and an actress who lives in Beverly Hills, has opened up to Inside Edition after staying mostly under the radar for her brother´s presidential campaign. ´I feel like our family could have helped more,´ she said, adding: ´But we were scared we´d be on the 6pm news, misspeaking.´ She also revealed the stunned reaction of both Romney and his wife, Ann, after learning he had been defeated

It was difficult for all of us who wanted Romney to be elected, but most difficult was knowing that an exceptionally good person lost to the Chicago Mob killing machine; very discouraging to be beaten in an unfair fight. Isn´t it amazing that Obama sells himself by espousing his belief in ´fairness´. What is fair about our government spending trillions more than they bring in? His success is built on the people losing the value of their savings. We are a house of cards built on lies.

I don´t think the problem was the family. If anything, I think Ann & the sons helped a lot. The problem was ORCA, some miscalculations about when to fight back by Mitt, stupid voters who didn´t turn up, voter fraud, Obama´s handouts and the mainstream media.

Mitt would have been such a good president. Now, all we have to look forward to is a disaster.

Hurricane victims are freezing, and Obama is playing golf.
Mitt and Ann Romney are too good for Obama people. There will be 4 years of untold suffering, may the Obama voters experience the Lion´s share of it.

I don´t know if the Romneys were stunned because they lost or realized how stupid this country is. But he really shouldn´t beat himself up,there´s nothing he could do about 49% of the population being on some assistance.

I´m actually surprised our deficit isn´t higher than stated or we´re 2 trillion a year in the hole.

This is a perfect example of how republicans refuse to crack heads to win an election,while the left goes for the throat with no holds barred.

They don´t care if they have to yank a lying ad after it´s already done damage.Conversely,Romney got hammered for saying Chrysler is going to move Jeep production overseas,when Chrysler isn´t even American owned anymore and that plan is in the works.

How many people know that 70% of GM cars are made overseas as whole cars or parts? Yet Obama is a hero for saving a handful of those jobs. I´ll bet if you ran the numbers,it would be cheaper to pay those workers to stay home rather than subsidize their earnings.

Make no mistake about it,GM is going to need another bailout because they didn´t fix the rudimentary problems with the company.Romney will be proven right about a prepackaged bankruptcy.

The Volts were such a failure,they had to give them away and they´re probably sitting in garages,rotting.

I still have the very nagging feeling that Romney did not lose.

And even if he really did lost a correctly counted election with only legal voters voting once then he shouldn´t have. Romney´s record of success v Obama´s failure after failure is just stunning.

I could not be more disgusted and discouraged. I am investigating a digital cable for $75 to install on my TV - which might also work on my internet - and if I can make this work then I´m canceling Comcast. Also will be diverting other spending to conservative businesses or limiting it as much as possible. Starve the beast!

#3 is right. Romney isn´t the only really good person we have run for office that lost. If the GOP does not retool, figure out who it is, he won´t be the last either.

I´m still having a hard time accepting the outcome of this election.....I refuse to speak to my mother. She didn´t vote her interests and can´t believe I´m taking this so seriously. I even pointed out that the bush tax cuts are expiring, meaning unless she does something quick the gov´t will get 55% of her estate when she dies.
I have no doubt there was fraud...everything pointed to a Romney win. I have never felt as dispirited over an election....this was the last chance we had to elect a president who cared about the interests of the entire electorate.

#9, I´m questioning Romney´s loss, too. As columnist Ruth Marcus wrote in the Washington Post, a flip of about 150,000 votes in Florida, Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire, and Romney would have won. That is, she says, one-tenth of one percent of the national vote.

Obama seemed awfully calm on election day when he said he was confident that he had the votes to win.

Colorado, PA, FL, OH, all finding counties with over 100% voter participation and 99% + going Dem. Clearly there was massive fraud.

Nothing will be done about it. The Obama administration is the most corrupt we´ve ever had and they benefited from the fraud. The media doesn´t care because they were campaigning for him anyway. The Republicans won´t do it because they´re too cowardly.

Who will tell the tale? Fox needs competition. Right. Now.

They literally stole the election. It doesn´t add up. Voter fraud is being exposed in CO,OH,PA,and FL. Romney should have contested them all! Why was he so weak about that? Why didn´t he fight for our country?! Why aren´t all those ate states being audited. All the polls wrong? In Obama´s favor? When they were all biased to begin with favoring Obama and yet Romney was ahead? What about all the lost/burnt/never got to the military votes? This stinks to ugh heaven. Enough about moving on! We need the election audited! Mitt didn´t fail, but he is now and he needs to get back in the game and have it audited. There´s enough proof to justify it.

I, too, can´t believe that Romney lost. There were several occurrences that make me suspicious. Paul Gable at Brushfires-of-Freedom explains how the voting machines can be rigged. He goes back to the 2004 election in Ohio. He says (I am paraphrasing) that "after the 2004 election, the Ohio legislature convened hearings on how someone could steal an Ohio election."

Paul states in his latest article:
The ´expert´ witness testifes to the Ohio legislators attending the hearing--almost all of whom appear to be Democrats--and explains that all that is necessary to rig elections is tabulating software that flips just enough votes to achieve a 51/49 split in favor of the candidate of choice. Very subtle; not visible at the precinct level; not ´brute force´ changing of votes in ways too obvious to be ignored; but a nice close 51/49 ´victory´ guaranteed. What´s the only thing that tips off the rigged vote? The expert witness says it would be inconsistency with polls--in his example, with exit polls.

I read another article, maybe at Breitbart, that the results could have been preplanned and that is why the polls were all coming in so close before the election. Obama´s win could then seem in line with the polls. Remember Obama´s team threatened to sue Gallop. That had to have put the fear of God into other pollsters.

My question is why did the US use 900 voting machines from Spain? I thought back to Michele´s trip to Spain in either 2009 or 2010. Could she have made a deal with the voting machine people back then? Since we don´t know where all the stimulus money went, maybe she took some of Obama´s stash with her.

I wish a lot of things, but I guess the ´good´ news Romney lost. If there was a media that wasn´t smug, liberal, democrats who think it kind of cute that many people in congress and at the highest levels of this administration, are avowed Marxists, BHO would never have had a first term. If there was an accurate voting process and if voters were tracked so bussed in union dupes didn´t vote in crucial counties, BHO might have lost. In the end Mitt would have been doomed by the forces that promoted and give cover to a completely unqualified President. Decades of pandering by both parties and gigantic rip offs by special interest groups have destroyed our economy and will destroy every dollar you have or hope to have in the next 4 years. Zombies believe we will be able to handle greater than depression unemployment and world wide debt levels humans have never seen. They are just buying time while they loot from the inside. You will know civilization has a chance when every TV news show is as critical and as intense on their coverage of democrats everywhere as they were with Bush´s time in office. I don´t think that will happen with the generation that ´shape´ the news AND entertainment today.

I don´t think any one factor can be blamed for Romney´s loss. There are many things that combined to produce the result: the advantage of incumbency, Hurricane Sandy, the effective demonization of Romney re his tax returns etc. It´s all in the mix of the critical mass which produced the result on election day.

I kick myself for feeling no one with Obama´s values could ever get near the White House. I feel this didn´t happen by accident. I thought with the weekend we might feel better at our house but feeling much worse.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on the heels of an internal review that cleared him in the still-churning road closure scandal, told Fox News he feels exonerated and indicated the ordeal will not impact his decision on whether to run for president in 2016. “There’s no baggage here because I didn’t do anything,” the Republican governor told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” when asked whether the scandal would hinder a presidential run. The governor spoke with Fox News on Friday just hours before giving his first press conference since the scandal broke in early January. A day earlier,

SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown called on three scandal-plagued state senators to resign on Friday, speaking out for the first time on a series of criminal cases that have sapped Democrats´ power in the Capitol and tarnished the Legislature´s image. Brown´s statement comes hours after the Senate voted to suspend Sens. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco), Ronald S. Calderon (D-Montebello) and Roderick D. Wright (D-Inglewood). “Given the extraordinary circumstances of these cases – and today’s unprecedented suspensions – the best way to restore public confidence is for these senators to resign," Brown said.

Obamacare’s Score of 67

In school, a child who gets a 67 percent will generally get a D. But for Obamacare, 67 percent is apparently grounds for an A. Talk about grading on a curve.In 2012, the Congressional Budget Office projected that 9 million people would get health insurance for 2014 through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges. Two days ago, the Obama administration announced that 6 million people had gotten insurance for 2014 through those very same exchanges—and the administration could barely contain its glee. So, what gives? In the summer of 2012, the Supreme Court issued its Obamacare ruling, holding that Obamacare’s individual mandate was

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
