Well it is the happiest
place on earth: Mitt Romney
takes family to Disneyland
two weeks to the day after
losing election

Daily Mail (UK), by Beth Stebner

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 9:02:19 AM

Two weeks ago, Mitt Romney was anxiously waiting at his campaign´s headquarters in Boston to hear the results of the election. After his crippling loss, pictures surfaced of the former Massachusetts governor drowning his sorrows in a gallon of chocolate milk. He was recently pictured with his distinctive salt-and-pepper hair unceremoniously unkempt, and has been spotted going to the gym with his wife, Ann. And now, two weeks to the day since he lost the election to President Obama, Romney went to Disneyland, a place typically saved for when public figures experience victory.

Nearly half the country preferred him to Obama. I think the Republicans should thank Mitt for fighting the good fight and stop the circular firing squad. Mitt is right about the "gifts" to voters. Why don´t the Republicans just admit it.

The Daily Mail being silly as usual. Chugging chocolate milk? Sounds downright wholesome.
Not hard to imagine what some other politicians chug (or choom) after a loss.

Whatever differences we conservatives had with Romney, I think there is one thing most of us agree on:
A Romney victory would have portended a vastly improved economy ... which would have benefited everyone.

Romney and his family gave it their all. For that I salute them, and wish them the happiest life they can have. (Though that will be hard in Obama´s Brave New America.)

The Romneys ran a great campaign and I appreciate what they did. We had the chance to turn the country around, but the have-nots are too in love with free stuff.

Obama did NOT win by a and slide. He has never worked for anything or earned anything on his own.

Mitt Romney will always be a winner because he has worked and been successful in his life. He is a decent man with a wonderful loving family. He still has his family and life will go on for them. Unfortunately, life will decline for most Americans.

Last night that worm brian williams did a hit piece on Romney that showed him with the disheveled look pumping his own gas. williams juxtaposed that view with the secret service protected campaign season. Of course during the campaign there was no regular guy Romney coverage just the mean, privileged venture capitalist who fired workers and killed women cancer victims. I hate brIan williams.

Mitt says he´s moving to California? Why would any wealthy man want to do that after voters approved Proposition 30 that raises taxes on his income bracket? Let´s hope that he´s planning to run for governor or senator, and do something to restore the Republican party to what is was there under Reagan.

Good for them. If truth be told - they are more like you and me than President Obama and Joe Biden. If you listened to anything during the campaign, his kids and people who knew them (and someone who bought a house from them in Utah) how hands on he is with his family and personal life. Just because you are "wealthy" doesn´t mean you have people waiting on you hand and foot.

Mitt Romney didn´t lose anywhere near what the Anerican people lost on Nov 6. He only lost an election, they lost a free and independent future.

Mitt was rich and getting richer, he didn´t need to be president to be successful. He just felt that he owed it to the country where he made his fortune to help it out of a crisis.

The american people have voted twice now for incompetence and dependency. They will reap the whirlwind and have no one else to blame but themselves.

Those "republicans" who stayed home because Mitt wasn´t conservative enough for them, or because they don´t like Mormons, can live with the consequences of their inaction.

Is Romney a family values kinda guy, decent, generous and kindhearted? Indeed. In contrast, Churchill was a mean and ugly drunk who publicly ridiculed his Ministers, Admirals and Generals. Von Bismarck drove anyone who crossed him from Government. TR was bombastic, volatile and contemptuous of Congress. MacArthur was imperious and condescending to all but his wife. None were nice guys whom Romney will ever be confused with. But as Lord Acton observed; "Good men are never great men". Obama had an effective unemployment rate approaching 17%, stratospheric borrowing in the trillions and reeked of arrogant incompetence. Yet Willard managed to snach defeat from victory in a very winnable election. Perhaps the light will go on some day for Romney´s fans who will come to grips w/the stone cold reality that, despite his nice guy persona, breeding, manners and schooling; Romney was a loser from day one.

Per the Daily Mail, Mitt Romney should be off in a dark corner clad in a hair-shirt being very sad for himself. Somebody tell Disneyland to bar the gates the next time he drops by. As for Romney´s other outrage of the week, he was fairly well known when governor of Massachusetts to pump his own gas and run his own errands, even though he had I believe a very frustrated state police detail expecting to do those things for him. As for his "unceremoniously unkempt" hair, I think that´s usually called "wind-blown."

Per #28 (and his BFF Lord Acton), goodness is beneath his contempt. Thanks for the warning.

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

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.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
