Mitt Romney told his top donors Wednesday that his loss to President Obama was a disappointing result that neither he nor his top aides had expected, but said he believed his team ran a “superb” campaign with “no drama,” and attributed his rival’s victory to “the gifts” the administration had given to blacks, Hispanics and young voters during Obama’s first term.

    You're in denial. You're ignoring that the Republicans did a great deal of self-sabotage. Romney's 47% remark was the nail in his coffin. Self-deportation, trying to rationalize that Romney care is different from Obamacare. People have enough common sense to know when somebody is tap dancing. Romney was just hoping we wouldn't care as long as he's simply "not Obama"

    and if you want to talk about back pocket media don't sit there and pretend Fox didn't take sides.

    What a missed opportunity. This could have been a civilized discussion about the role of government in American democracy, instead name calling and vitriol. To what purpose? Surely you have convinced no one in the Obama camp that they were wrong -headed, but if this is the way you achieve catharsis, I hope you feel better.

    I am pretty sure I have not convinced you that a civilized discussion is preferable to your post but I guess I needed my own catharsis. I may or may not be pleased with election outcome but Manal did point out this incontestable fact that Mr. Romney lost and Mr. Obama won. Maybe you had something to do with that, Mr. Romney was and is gentleman and in no way would support your rant. It is comments like yours that mau have convinced many to abandon the Republican Party.

    Obama got a lot of votes by pretending to be generous. Whether that would have been enough to win or not we'll never know. He wasn't about to take a chance on that. Obama won this election by fraud.

    Show proof of that, or are you just pulling it out of your ass. I can show you where Karl Rove stole the 2004 election, and tried to steal the 2012 election.

    Obama won because people he was better prepared to run this nation. Because he actually had consistent beliefs. Not to mention Romney came off as an aloof, out of touch, douchebag who would say anything without saying anything as long as it would get him votes.

    No, not true. Bush W actually gave up many things that would appear as if he didn't care. Golf was one of those things. Unlike bama who doesn't give a rats patootie about any one but himself.

    Like these?

    Jimmy Carter took 79 days in 4 years.
    Bill Clinton took 152 days in 8 years.
    Ronald Reagan took 335 days in 8 years.
    George Bush Sr. took 543 days in 4 years.

    In their first year in office:
    Obama - 26 days
    Clinton - 19 days
    George W. Bush - 69 days

    Obama's predecessor gets his own section, as he is the undisputed record holder.

    George W. Bush eight year totals:
    487 days at Camp David
    490 days at Crawford Ranch
    43 days at Kennebunkp­ort Compound
    Total: 1020 days, more than 1/3rd of his presidency­.

    You got that right. Every selfish person in this once great country voted for Obama. It will be very interesting when big business leave this country what the lazy people will do as there will be very little tax money to give them. This country was built on getting a chance to be a success and paying back but now theajority just want something for thselfs with put a car of helping their fellow man
