San Diego - The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan. Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla, a moneyed and pristine enclave of San Diego, at noisy construction workers fixing up his next-door neighbor’s home, sending regular updates on the renovation. He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the “fiscal cliff” negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if. Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
The voters made the biggest mistake ever. And many of us are sad. We had the opportunity to elect an authentic American, who, even those who voted against him, believed he was more capable than the kenyan klown. Instead, we sent in the klown, for a second term. there is no rational way to explain this.
Obama never loses. He never negotiates in good faith. He lies at will. He destroys foreign policy. He slays our ambassadors and lies about it. He hates Israel and treats Netanyahu like dirt. He uses the EPA as a goon squad against our industries. He hijacks our Dept of Energy to push green energy.
After listeing to the lies, the attemps to smear his good name, knowing that voter fraud played a large part of the loss and then hearing your supposed "friends" in your own party slam you after the loss it tends to be a "downer."
BUT...a family of faith that has already fought (and beaten back) breast cancer and MS with grace and dignity will be fine.
What´s he supposed to be doing? He isn´t a member of congress or the governor of a state or any other public position, so why can´t he take a well-deserved break?
I guess someone doesn´t want to talk about Obama´s ridiculously insulting proposal to (not) avoid the fiscal cliff. Or the continued revelations of Susan Rice´s various incidents of incompetence and perfidy. Or his very special expensive vacation. Or ATF agents being demoted and discharged because of Fast and Furious (what´s that?). Or all the other ongoing stories that tell the true story of the worst president in the history of the US.
I´m tired of hearing that Romney didn´t "connect" with people. Tens of thousands of people stood out in the rain and sleet for hours, all over the country, waiting to see him. Obama couldn´t draw flies to honey. So who did a bteer job of connecting?
And if we´ve come to the point where a candidate who conducts himself with dignity and reserve--qualities we used to admire--is unacceptable because he´s dignified and reserved, then we´re lost.
Gee, more "breaking news" from the WaPoop! Got news for them, the Romney´s have NO wounds compared to what is going to happen to this Country thanks to the outright THEFT of the Election and leftist-idiots like the ones toiling away at rags like theirs, NYSlimes and the rest of the rabble. Don´t worry about the Romney´s WaPoop "staff", they will be fine. This Country, not so much...
One of the greatest disappointments has to be watching what is happening in D.C., when he genuinely believes he knows what to do to turn things around, that he was "this close" to beginning the work of doing that, and knowing that he can´t do anything about it now.
I will never understand how people could have voted for Obama and not Romney. Romney would have been so much better! But, my stupid in-laws voted Obama. The big guy thinks the dems are for the working guy. He is so wrong.
He has a plan. To be a devoted husband, a great father and grandfather, and the successful businessman he´s always been.
Obama is the one without a plan. I think he made a critical error this week, when he insisted upon having the tax cuts now and spending cuts later. People are tired of his tax and spend ways. I think he could have gotten away with it if he had even pretended that he wanted to rein in spending.
He has had several rounds of stimulus spending with no results. How much longer can he get away with this? I know liberals are stupid and want their safety net, but they are going to be losing their jobs as well. It is easier for liberals when only the nameless "rich guys" are suffering.
This country is now being ´ruled´ by an illiterate teleprompter reader and the moron mob that rarely gets up before noon to collect their ´free stuff´! In 2010 at least we got the House. What did this Kleenex peddler get us now? Not even the Senate! Throw Boehner and McConnell out,they are self serving and care only about themselves. I am furious how the Romneys were treated by the gutter media and the gay community organizing thug!
This article is a lot of BS, 98% of it being conjecture, fantasy and wishful thinking built around the simple facts that he lost,is in this location, and occasionally has visitors. It is a rock sandwich and a pathetic excuse for reporting journalism, and the author, the editor, and the publisher should be ashamed.
Here´s what I´m hoping. The person(s) who falsified the bonus birth certificate presented on the WH website would get a huge case of the guilts and he would come forward and say so and the many ACORN folks behind the scenes who tampered with the early voting ballots (many virtually disappearing)and with the machines in the morning hours of Nov 6 would be found out...and everyone who saw Obama in that gay bathhouse in Chicago in 2007 would fess up. On the subject, the great solace for Romney is that he is a fine man, an honest father and husband and many folks liked him alot. He has nothing to be ashamed of. I believe that he really won. But if we don´t get voter I.D. laws in all the states, there is no reason to have another election. Period.
The wounds are all ours, the American people´s. Instead of a competent businessman and decent human being, we will have to suffer through four more years of a vengeful, spiteful, incompetent man who is bent on destroying our country.
Between the huge crowdws supporting Romney, the articles I´ve read on voting machine software hacks in the four critical states and the 0"bummer statement at poll closing time saying, "don´t worry, we´ve got the votes" , I am convinced the election was stolen.
To Win the next Election the Republican Party needs to do things it simply will not do. First, pull your kids out of public school, and file a lawsuit over property taxes. The public school system is a tax funded army of supporters for the Democrat party. They supply warm bodies, feet on the ground, and indoctrinate children. The public school system is so invasive that it generally enjoys primary employer status in many small communities. Unless, and Until, The GOP makes a direct assault on this government institution, Liberty dies.
I believe the Romney´s are already fine. They have a strong and loving family reinforced with a strong faith in God. I believe Mitt Romney will go on to do great things with little notice.....you know ..the things you do when no one is looking. Who knows? Maybe God has blessed him with the loss. Maybe God has bigger and better plans for him.
I can easily identify with the guy who loaded up the family truckster, put the dog on top, and set out with his wife and kids for a family adventure. It´s easy to identify with families who pay their own way.
I have nothing in common with a guy who blows millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish vacations for himself and his family, and then scolds Americans for not paying their own way.
The election is over Wapo. You can go back to kissing Obama butt. Leave the Romneys, and for that matter the rest of us, alone. You have a big job ahead of you spending 4 more years covering for these Marxist America hating pigs in the WH that you have managed to force down America´s throats. Rejoice and be glad in it. Your day is coming.
I was an early Mitt supporter. I introduced him to my mayor in 1994 when he was a virtual unknown running against Ted Kennedy. He´s a good man. The lose just doesn´t add up. There had to have been massive voter fraud but there were still alot of dumb people out there too. I´m afraid that good people like Mitt will never win as long as there´s corruption and ignorant voters.
Why do people keep saying "Marxist" and "communist"? The word is Islamist! The White House has sided with the extreme Muslims in every case. We were told not to call the Fort Hood murderer who shouted "Allah Akbar" a terrorist and then they declared the word terrorist off limits. The Jerkster has been wearing his Allah ring since he was 18. What is so hard to understand about this?
Things might not go as well as Obama would like. After 4 more years, he and Michelle will no longer be seen as the wonder couple that the 47% believe them to be. I predict they will be loathed by even the O cult believers, MSM, Hollywood, gays etc. We are all going to get a taste of just how low he will go. He might have some illegal power for awhile but he will be hated like all arrogant ´rulers´. I mean, who has ever had to live under an egomaniac like say a Stalin, Mao, Hitler after all the promises they initially made and then grown to love them? No one. History doesn´t speak kindly of the ones of this mold..
Why on earth do they keep dragging garbage out like this? I have never seen the media try to make Gore or Kerry seem depressed or down in the dumps. In fact, they left them alone. The one good thing about this election is that not only do the dems own the disaster, but so does the media.
Romney was going to be a Great President. The right Man for the time. but the American people that make this country great are pushed closer to our 2nd amendment right by design from this administration.
If there is evidence of vote fraud and a stolen election then why doesn´t the RNC spend its money on litigating the results and quit whining. The republicans have been in a under attack since at least ´92 and still don´t realize it they are in a fight. It is now do or die. M
#50 I completely agree with you - the republican party has reverted to Whigdom - it is time for it to furl its banner and go away - it´s past time for a new strong and dynamic movement to take the helm - the democrats are all out of their minds and many of them are going to reap a bitter harvest come 2013. Romney was probably too nice a guy to compete in the low down tricks of politicking.
Hold your head high Mitt, with the exception of massive voter fraud and a little over half of the American Sheeple being asleep at the wheel (or should I say asleep in the voter booth), you won the votes and heart of fine American Patriots coast to coast. You brought real Leadership and class to a Liberal Three Ring Circus...which continues today unabated...the American Sheeple were not worthy of you. Even now they continue in their slumber and blind obedience to a force that they still don´t understand!
Just remember that although Richard Nixon lost in 1960, and resurrected himself and became president in 1968 and won re-election in 1972. Anything is possible.
Romney could become a real thorn in Obama´s side, by writing articles and appearing on Fox and even some of the alphabets. He is so much smarter than Zippy, I think he could come across as an authority on fiscal issues. Little by little people would begin to wonder why he isn´t the president because he makes so much sense.
That may be just day-dreaming on my part, but I hope Romney will study what Nixon did after the 1960 loss and what he did to get back into politics. One thing is for certain, he must not use the same advisors who were handed down to him from John McCain. Romney should pay a visit to Sarah Palin, and Ann should go with him. I think they might find they have lots in common.
How can a guy this smart and experienced with campaigns, NOT have someone on staff put together some kind of polling place strategy? Did NO one in that campaign understand the need for oversight in certain counties that have a long history of overt voting fraud? The DNC sure understood what they needed to do and they did just enough to assure no recount. Even if they had to ´eject´ Republican poll watchers from EVERY Philadelphia polling place. I knew there would be fraud there, why didn´t the Republicans?

Ditto to #7 & #38. There was massive voter fraud in the recent presidential election and World Net Daily and Hannity.com have been reporting and talking about voter fraud.
And there now is a lawsuit in Florida challenging Obama´s electoral votes. If 16 other States´ electors refuse to vote, then the election goes to the House of Representatives (president) and Senate (vice president.
RE: #50 - Because the RNC is prohibited from doing so based on a Consent Decree issued in 1982. See Christian Adams´s explanation (and other links) at http://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/ .
RE: The Romneys - I came to really admire and care for these people. I wasn´t a backer until I had to be, but I grew to believe he was a good candidate. They are most certainly good and decent people. God will take care of them, because they trust in Him. I wish them all the best, and wish I could give them a hug.
The Washington Compost has always been and continues to be a big joke. Much like the NYT this "newspaper" isn´t even fit to be in my fireplace. Did this rag print a similar story about Lurch Kerry back in 04. I can´t seem to recall one. I two am sick and tired of the main stream presstitutes saying that Romney was detached. The campaign crowds that I went to didn´t bear that nonsense out in the least. I´ve got news for the dumb liberals stinking up the Compost offices. We do have one of the most detached ingrates to ever funk up the WH in my lifetime. Heck even "BJ" Clinton was more personable than this clown(his problem was below the belt). So you guys can take this article and stick it where the sun don´t shine.
Americans are all the worse for this loss. The ComPost is called that for a reason.
We will now see our demise at the hands of amateurs, only good at destruction. zippy has gotten everything he wanted - destroy our economy, destroy our jobs and destroy our Constitution, national will and spirit. Good and evil cannot stand in the same place.
We need to go underground, keep our Faith and rebuild singly, our own personal lives and then we can win.
I feel so badly for these wonderful people, Mitt, Ann and their family who are such a great asset to our country. They are self-made and I am sure are realistic and well-adjusted people because their values are strong and they love one another.
Mitt Romney won this election and many hearts. God bless them and help us!
Hi folks. Reply 50 cites reason Repubs. gave up the right to question minority votes way back in 1982. Until this action gets resolved, GOP will never win another election. I voted straight Repub. I was called back to hear my vote was kicked back out of the box. I had to turn it over and reinsert it to make it count. My readings of election tells me that approx 16 million votes were illegal. Especially in districts where Zero got more than 100% of the votes. End of story.
Unleashing a barrage of expletives that would be unusual even in an off-the-record conversation, the chief spokeswoman for Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled campaign for mayor attacked a former campaign intern in an interview published on Tuesday night. Barbara Morgan, in an interview with Talking Points Memo, a political news site, was responding to a first-person account by Olivia Nuzzi, the former intern, who wrote harshly in The Daily News about her experiences with the campaign. Ms. Nuzzi claimed that Mr. Weiner repeatedly called interns by the wrong name, underpaid a staff
THERE is something missing from the endless moralizing and sophomoric jokes aimed at Anthony D. Weiner. That something is the role of women in a coarse and creepy Internet culture dedicated to the fulfillment of both male and female desires for virtual carnal knowledge. People ask how Mr. Weiner’s wife, the soulfully beautiful and professionally accomplished Huma Abedin, can stay with him. My question is why hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women apparently derive gratification from exchanging sexual talk and pictures with strangers.
The American journalism trade is breathing a collective – but premature and, in many cases, grossly hypocritical – sigh of relief today. A military judge has found Bradley Manning guilty of many crimes, but "aiding the enemy" isn´t one of them. Had the judge found Manning guilty of aiding the enemy, she would have set a terrible precedent. For the first time, an American court – albeit a military court – would have said it was a potentially capital crime simply to give information to a news organization, because in the internet era
Green paint was found Monday defacing a statue outside the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall and poured atop an organ in a chapel at the Washington National Cathedral, just three days after the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized in a similar manner. D.C. police have now joined the U.S. Park Police in the investigation, but authorities said they do not know if any of the incidents are related.
"I think every president in the intense media environment we have now, certainly every two-term president, gets to a point where the American people stop listening, stop leaning forward hungrily for information. I think this president got there earlier than most presidents. And I think he´s in that time now."So said the Wall Street Journal´s Peggy Noonan on ABC´s This Week Sunday.
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was “delusional” and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor."I think it´s time for him to go away and let New York have its mayor’s race," Axelrod said on NBC´s "Meet thePress." Axelrod said he had not commented on Weiner because he is personal friends with Weiner´s wife,
Weiner’s political career will never end, if only because of how much value he has to offer to the media, standup comedians and bored browsers looking for some news item to wake them up long enough to finish another hour of data entry at their job. Shame has become a mostly discredited concept. The return of Weiner and Spitzer to public life proves as much. But the Era of Shame ended conclusively with Clinton’s impeachment proceedings. The only outcome of those proceedings was to degrade the country while leaving the man at the center of the mess intact.
Sometimes James Risen feels like Jean Valjean, the beleaguered protagonist of “Les Miserables,” hounded for years by the authorities. “They just keep coming at me,” Mr. Risen, a Times reporter in Washington, told me by phone last week. It has been 10 years since he learned of a secret C.I.A. program to interfere with Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, and six since he got an ominous FedEx package containing a government subpoena. Since then, it has been one legal hurdle after another, trying to stay out of court. Just over a week ago, another blow came: A federal appeals court panel ruled,
In a new sign of tumult within Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled political operation, his campaign manager has quit, leaving his already skeletal team without a day-to-day leader. According to two people told of the decision, the campaign manager, Danny Kedem, no longer wished to oversee Mr. Weiner’s bid for New York mayor after a week of bruising revelations about the candidate’s latest online conduct. The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.
Hamilton Jordan, Jimmy Carter’s young, brash chief of staff, was famous during the administration for negotiating tough deals, carousing at night and shunning the stuffy customs of official Washington. He spent the final years of his life on a quieter pursuit: writing a memoir of nearly 300 pages that was not quite finished at the time of his death in 2008. Now his daughter, Kathleen, a 24-year-old television producer, is rushing to polish the manuscript in the hope of getting it published
President Obama suggested that states reconsider "stand your ground" laws, and contended that they invite people to use deadly force when it is not justified. The following statement proves Mr. Obama´s well-known dishonesty, as demonstrated below. I refer specifically to his implication that "stand your ground" means you can shoot somebody who makes you "feel threatened." And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these "stand your ground" laws, I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed,
If you have never suffered from lingering low back pain, you’re lucky or, more likely, young. Up to 80 percent of us will experience low back pain at some point. And for most, there won’t be an identifiable cause. In the past 10 years, the most popular nonsurgical medical treatment for “chronic, nonspecific” low back pain has been injection therapy, or shots into the lower back of various substances — usually cortisone but also liquid ibuprofen, morphine and vitamin B12.
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees.

America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world.

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get
A group of experts advising the nation’s premier cancer research institution has recommended sweeping changes in the approach to cancer detection and treatment, including changes in the very definition of cancer and eliminating the word entirely from some common diagnoses. (Snip) The group, which includes some of the top scientists in cancer research, also suggested that many lesions detected during breast, prostate, thyroid, lung and other cancer screenings should not be called cancer at all but should instead be reclassified as IDLE conditions, which stands for “indolent lesions of
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
