Romney in interview
explains his defeat

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/3/2013 10:04:04 PM

One hundred seventeen days later, Mitt Romney still isn’t over it. Making his first public comments since losing last November’s presidential election, Romney appeared mystified still that the country didn’t see things his way. He went on the attack against President Obama during a wide-ranging interview on “Fox News Sunday,” as if the Republican hadn’t lost a beat since giving his last stump speech. Explaining the defeat, Romney and his wife spread around the blame — Mitt to Obama winning over so many blacks and Hispanics by enacting universal health care, Ann to a news media she

Romney lost because he tried to look too much like Stinky the Gunrunner. He also did nothing about wholesale voter fraud in the battle ground states.

Ann´s right. The MSM turned Romney into the Big Bad Wolf and Obama was their LIttle Red Riding Hood. Aren´t we lucky?

Stick a for in it Mitt. He lost be cause of two words: "Mitt Romney". Or as I like to call him Mittens McRombamaney. TRhe best of all worlds. Like a free lunch buffet where you can get Mexican, Italian and Chinese all in one hiot steam tray line, and of course all the mac n cheese you can eat, with the usual assortment of cookies, cheesecake and the chocolate fountain. Coffee and tea extra.

Bawahaha If Romney not going into a convent or other retreat is irritating the media I salute him and Ann. Since the Tyrant-in-Chief is in constant campaign mode, why not the Romney´s? About time someone played the dems game and with much more class.

More power to those who can take a big hit and keep on chugging along!!

Mitt deserves many "I told you so " moments and his face time only makes the case for "No, Virginia, both parties are not the same."

Romney lost because of massive voter fraud in swing states -- busloads of "Somalis" who could not read the ballot voting in Ohio, many many voter precincts with 0 votes for Romney, electronic voting machines switching Romney votes to Obama votes, and the MYTH that 3-5 million Republicans did not show up to vote.

Romney does not have what takes to get down in the dirt and fight Obama and his cronies like the junkyard dogs that they are. Newt had it in him to speak the truth about Obama, and he would have trounced Obama in the debates.

Romney should have challenged Obama´s eligiblity to be president -- either Obams was the son of a Kenyan/British subject, and/or he was born in Kenya, or he was the son of a Communist/pedophile/pornographer and/or he later became an Indonesian citizen who later traveled to Pakistan on a foreign passport. If Romney had had Obama´s questionable credentials, he never would have made it through the first primary.

Romney´s defeat had nothing to do with his 47% comment and everything to do with all of the above.

I disagree with #´s 7 & 9. Romney and his campaign staff made some mistakes, but I don´t believe any other GOP candidate would have polled better than he did on election day.

Gingrich would have come across to the average LoFo as snarly and mean, substance notwithstanding. He left the House widely hated, and nothing had really changed in the ensuing years. He would have been lucky to get 30% of the female vote. Testy, foot-in-his-mouth Rick Santorum would have fared no better. And as to the question of Obama´s eligibility, that was something he had easily fudged for four years and had no traction outside the talk show echo chamber.

As bummed out as I was about the results of November 6 I am grateful Romney was our nominee. With anyone else at the head of the ticket we might very well have lost the House.

Well, I speak English, and I understood #4. Romney tried to be all things to all people & by doing so, was so homogenous, it was hard to rally behind anything he said. No excitement. No flavor. No real vision except we think he knew how to fix our economy. While that was very important, we also need to reduce govt, fix the immigration problem, end well in our war on terror, stop the leftist onslaught on this great country, etc. Not enough of us thought he could go beyond $$$ management and stand up & be a strong conservative when it counted on the rest.

Obama has a universal debit card linked directly to the US treasury.Every stripe of liberal money grubbers knows this.The Chicago system of kickbacks and quid pro quos followed Obama to DC.

You had $6 trillion in new debt before you could blink your eyes,the majority of which went to institutional liberals.Just the government taking over the student loan industry added billions which we´ll never get back.I just heard the delinquency rate on student loans has seen a big spike.The

FHA has well over a trillion out on home loans with very little capitalization behind them.

It´s hard to imagine how someone could squander $6 trillion with little or no uptick in the economy.Yet people like Krugman says the stimulus failed because it wasn´t big enough,not the fact it went to no job creating people.

Obama had more than enough money to steal this election by a variety of means and a lot of it financed with backdoor taxpayer money.

Romney was defeated by fraud by not counting military votes and evangelicals who refused to vote for a Mormon.
#4 gave away an attitude of the evangelical hate code by calling Romney Mittens an insult that has been used before this election because someone thinks it demeans him.
I will find it hard to ever vote for an evangelical ever again because they wouldn´t vote for America.

I will not support the Republican party again because of the way they treated Romney. They made him their nominee and then conjured up all kinds of infighting that brought about his downfall. The Grand Old Party, the media, and other Obama thugs are to blame for the mess we´re in today.

It is so petty to blame Romney for losing. I agree with posters who say voter fraud was the cause! Check out all the irregularities at the battleground states and it´s enough to make you cuss. Also the big contributing factor, THE MSM, (may they rot in h---, wherever corrupt journalists go!) If I hear mittens one more time, I will get sick. We chose a candidate who was honest, not perfect, but a good, decent man and why accuse the evangelicals of not voting for him because you thin k they are so narrow-minded that they would not vote for a Mormon. All the evangelical leaders said they were voting for Romney. Where is the evidence that evangelicals did not vote for Romney!! If votes are missing, I would not blame the evangelicals, I would blame the Democrats at the polls on the inside and able to do much harm! The Romneys were a class act yesterday on Fox, this journalist is an Obamanut, so I could see how he would try to make Romney look bad!

I agree with #5, #8, #10, #14, #15 AND #16. Mitt Romney was not simply running against the grifter-in-chief, the "msm" and every interest group in this country that worships at the feet of demonrats, and obama in general, he had a lot of "gopers" campaigning against him because he didn´t fit their "conservative-mode". Aside from the wide-spread voter-fraud that had some counties with more than 110% of their "constituents" voting for the dear leader... BTW, #5 & #8, neither does #4. "Mittens"? Seriously? Time to grow up and move on.

I watched the interview; the Romney´s did not ATTACK as this article stated. They answered questions from their hearts. The way things are going, they avoided pinpointing blame on individual. The press was ok to cast blame and was done sweeting by Ann.

I thought they conducted themselves in a classy, not self serving manner. They were not my first choice, but they were the utimately the best choice. It is only a shame for the country that Romney was not elected.

What #18 said. The cult of personality won over the hard truth about the country headed the wrong way. The kill mitt strategy worked, #4! Congrats! Newt, Sarah and Rick perry did their part too with the vulture capitalism remarks. We can´t begin to shine a light on the fraud that occurred because we can´t defend ourselves against racism charges. The one bright spot for me has been the emergence of dr. Carsen. I agree with mitts charges on the campaign mistakes but we are losing ground if we don´t get ourselves united.

The usual Romney excuse mongers on parade. Predictable. He proved he was feckless and inept, now add brainless to his descriptive; given his comment about minority voters. Of all the D voting blocks, Blacks have both the lowest participation (registration) rate and the highest party identification rate (some 97% vote D). So w/a Black POTUS they instinctively identified with, a greater effort to woo Black voters would have turned the tide, would it? Really? This analysis tells you everything you need to know about Romney and why he got his rear end handed to him. The persuadable votes were in the broad middle class, under terrible economic stress; never the coddled minority enclaves living on the dole; a reality that escaped Romney. But when, at your core, you´re a man of the left, this is the way you think. The election results were predictable.

There are many reasons why Romney lost:

1) Media bias
2) GOP too scared to back a strong Conservative to the core
3) Voter fraud
4) Romney´s own robotic, Johnny-one-note, sway-w/the-wind self
5) Ron Paul-type conservatives who refused to vote at all
6) Prejudice &/or concern against a Mormon being POTUS who didn´t vote
7) White guilt

In that order. IN THAT ORDER!

So what does that mean? We have to overcome every one of the above to win in 2016. Ann Coulter & a few others were WRONG WRONG WRONG when they said he was the only one who could be elected! Moderates do NOT energize the conservative base. Dole, McCain & now Romney have proved it.

Please, LDS Ldotters, please stop blaming this on his religious persuasion, or you will learn nothing. Americans, grow some stones & GO for it, for the love of God & country!!

Because Romney was defeated by fraud it would be OK to run another RINO next time if we can curtail the fraud because that would result in a win for our side. It seems like this is what a lot of you are saying.

I will always vote. But do not expect to ever see a Repub president for the next twelve years at least. I figure Bush III will run against Hillary. At least I can tune out the lies and just show up and vote. Will not have to agonize over the usual Republican weenie responses and the usual Dem lies. Life is much easier now that I have lost all hope in the Repub party. I will vote. Is all I can do because the Repub Party does not value me or my opinion. Therefore I give way to the moderates and will watch them lose...and blame me again.

#23 most of the conditions you outlined except #2&4 we can all pretty much agree.

On the perfect conservative candidate not even Reagan could´ve won under such circumstances outlined above. As many campaign miscalculations that were made most made using bad poll data, there was no perfect conservative candidate alive or dead that can beat the gifts from Santa. Romney was a real world problem solver not some phony politician, which is what discourages me the most. This is a dark period that will have to play out for the entire country.

The Shame of Brandeis

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square. Be mean to John Roberts and

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional.

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
