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.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image. Mehlman also

If you do not think the responsibilities of a mother comprise the "World´s Toughest Job," a greeting card company is hoping to change that with its new viral video. American Greetings enlisted the help of Boston-based advertising agency Mullen for its Mother´s Day campaign this year. The company started the project just before Christmas break last year. "One of our writers went home to Michigan to be with her family," recalled Jon Ruby, vice president and creative director at Mullen. "She spent quite a bit of time with her brother and sister-in-law.

Josh Romney took a quick potshot at Sen. Harry Reid this week with a Twitter post of his famous father, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, standing in line to pay his taxes. The tweet included the text: “Hey @SenatorReid here’s a shot of @MittRomney paying taxes. Does it every year. It’s how you get your paycheck.” The back story is that Mr. Reid insisted during the last presidential campaign that Mr. Romney was a tax dodger who sent his money to offshore accounts — even when that claim was proven untrue. Mr. Reid’s exact words, as reported by The Hill:

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
