“We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends. And then you get off. And it's not like, oh, can't we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It's like, no, the ride's over.”— Mitt Romney on his 2012 presidential campaign on Fox News Sunday.
OT, but did anybody see the end of the Thunder/Clippers game? I don't know why Ibaka got a flagrant foul. He got all ball.
Romney on FOX today: "The president had the power of incumbency, 'Obamacare' was very attractive, particularly to those without insurance, and they came out in large numbers to vote, so that was part of a successful campaign."
Isn't it just outrageous how poor people vote for their own survival. It's like they think that they're endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life...
In the article the republicans complain that Obama isn't willing to compromise. Then they say any tax increases (including closing tax loop holes are off the table). Are they ignorant or just plain stupid? Taking everyhting they don't like off the table is exactly what they're accusing Obama of doing.
Oh and Willard, take your whine, oops I mean wife with you: "I'm happy to blame the media," Ann Romney
@sacredh Which, of course, we all appreciate.
You know-like we when appreciate the car in the next lane not swerving into us.
I know. But I'd say he's getting as bad as me since I'm older. My two favorite teams are the Cavs and the Heat. When LeBron left the Cavs for the Heat it was one of those "Well, if he's not staying, I want him to play for the Heat".
@sacredh You are getting as bad as Grunwald! heh
@sacredh They didn't invite Christie because they fear he'll eat too much and there won't be enough for everyone.
Speaking of cooking, LeBron did some cooking of his own. Miami just came back from 16 down to beat the Knicks in MSG. James had another ho-hum game. 29 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks.
@sacredh I suppose they are thinking they run the republican party. And they are correct.
As I have said before-the republican party is like a chicken stock reduction. Shrinking and more intense. (Yes, I cook too much)
It amazes me that CPAC invited Mitt to speak and didn't invite Christie. What are they thinking? The guy that lost the last election and won't run again needs the exposure and a guy that has a good chance should be excluded? I love those guys. They're nuts.
@sacredh Republicans say the sequester is a good thing. Republicans say it's Pres. Obama's sequester. So Republicans must approve of Pres. Obama. Of course they'll deny this because they are twisted fools.
Ann: Mitt, tell him about the time you took me to the track and I played the race card.
Mitt: Shut up Ann.
Ann: Yeah, when we blew chunks we hit some people sitting behind us. But there's no need to worry about it. We didn't hit anyone important.
I really hope this isn't the beginning of the media taking a warm look back at the noble Mitt Romney. Rather than being a decent and honorable man, he is one of the most dishonest, shameless phonies this country has had to suffer in decades. What should be remembered about him is that the public's contempt for him (including those in his own party) is well founded.
I live in MA where he was a two year on and two year off governor. The last two years was the start of his presidential campaign. The country dodged a bullet by not electing this privileged jerk.
Ah, nostalgia. Remind me again why we said "Hell No!" to the Mittster in the first place. Was it because he hid money in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands? Was it because he wouldn't release any taxes other than two years he scrubbed because he was running again? Was it because he was a vulture capitalist? Was it because he he was so out of touch that he thought that selling stocks from his portfolio was a scarifice when he was in college?
Mitt: "The campaign was like great sex. It was up and down, in and out, sweat flying, grunting and humping and then the two minutes are up and you wondered "What just happened?"".
Ann: "And there were you people on the ride too, so that pretty much ruined it for us. There were people on the roller coaster that bought their clothes at Wal-Mart for God's sake! And then at 11:18 CNN called Ohio for Mitt. I couldn't believe that you people were so stupid! We switched over to Fox where I knew we still had a chance to win."
