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.)

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.

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.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create.

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
