Mitt and Ann Romney spent election day and night surrounded by their beautiful family and basking in the joy of their adorable grandchildren.

Beautiful.

The abiding love in this family shines through, even in defeat.

Thank you for fighting the good fight, Governor Romney. God bless you and your loving family.

    Think of all the nastiness directed towards this man by the left. Now go into the future to the day Mr. Romney passes away. You know what the left will say then? “These Republicans today are such a bunch of obstructionist dunderheads? Why can’t they be principled men willing to compromise, like Mitt Romney, who we all liked and said favorable things about even though we voted for Obama–who, by the way, would still be president now if only our effort to repeal the Twenty-Second Amendment hadn’t been thwarted by those awful Republicans. Who as I was saying, are dreadful, evil people, not like that good man Romney they ran for president back in ’12.”
    Count on it.

    Classy family and a man with a real plan for economic recovery. So long USA. It was great knowing you.

    • steve70638

      Yeah, but couldn’t share any of the details beyond 5 sentences of how his “real plan” would actually work.

        He sure had a hell of a lot more to say than Obama. All Obama could do is name call and lie.

        • steve70638

          Exactly, and Romney couldn’t even beat him…pretty pathetic, isn’t it? Don’t blame the voters, blame the campaign.

        You must not have read anything on his website. It had a lot more detail than just 5 sentences…a LOT more than what your “leader” has offered. Useful idiot…

        • steve70638

          The expression is “useless idiot”. I am happy to be a useful idiot. But I guess details are lost on you.

          What is on his website is for true believers to read. What he COMMUNICATED to America and in particular the undecided and moderates is that he has a 5 point plan and that we shouldn’t worry about the details.

    If he were to run again in 2017, I would vote for him again then. But since I’ve read that he won’t run again, all I can say is I sure hope Ryan does.

    Just be sure to thank the media for swaying the election again, with their 24/7 propaganda. Four more years of softball questions, misfeasance and collusion from the media. Four more years of propaganda and the four American deaths in Benghazi that will not be addressed. Ignored to death and ignored in death. Shame.

    You know, for the first time, he sounded like a human being and not like he was being paid or threatened to say whatever it takes to win, at all costs, no matter what.

    It’s a shame that he compromised himself for this party. John McCain did the same thing. There are conservatives in this world who were decent people, who made decisions based on what’s right for America and not what’s right for party or pure business interests, and it made me sad to watch them throw that away to toe the party line due to direct pressure from men like Rove and Norquist and the Koch brothers.

    Now they’re just laughing stocks, when they used to be known as mavericks.

    Furthermore, Mitt Romney has forever given away his legacy – the healthcare that he created in Massachussets – to Obama. That was his accomplishment, and maybe it would have redeemed the things he did during his Bain years, and he warped the memory of it and then just gave it away to Obama. No one will remember this good thing that he did now, and it’s his own fault.

    Stay true to yourself. That’s the take away lesson here amongst many others

    • LeighLeigh

      Obama’s speech was a political campaign speech….he needs to come to the center…are you kidding me? These lists that he kept speaking about…what the hell was that? At least obama knows how to make women appreciate their vaginas because that is what he reduced us to…..sigh.

      With you not our President and Vice President I am for the first time not proud to be an American. In fact I am ashamed of this country, declining you both, the finest men, sometimes I thought G.d sent you to us. I feel sick and sad, G.d Bless both of you, you gave me hope, I have faith you will one day be leading our Country. I will miss seeing you and your beautiful families, you gave so much of yourselves, warmth and vision and love to us. I am eternally grateful and you keep my light from not extinguishing.

      • LilBear

        I couldn’t have said it better. than Joanne Leslie…I am so sad and disappointed that Americans didn’t see what a stellar first family y’all would have made and what a wonderful President you would have made. I want to thank you for your efforts to take back America. I’m tuning out of Fox (which I love) and all future politics…can’t stand to watch the disintegration of America with another four years of this disgusting administration. I am 70 and just waiting for the “death panels” to decide my fate over the next 15 or so years. Can’t stop crying for our country’s loss of your wonderful family being in the White House. I wish you and your family a blessed and happy future.

        • smiley_t

          You both just wrote so eloquently what I have been feeling for the past two days. Very sad for what our country has become. I feel so disillusioned by the voting process…it doesn’t seem to matter. The other side blatantly cheats, yet no one does anything about it.

  • http://twitter.com/stardustsara sara raone

    i give up on my country and mankind. i’ve had enough. this country can go to hell in a hand basket for all i care. i’ve given too many tears to it

    congratulations to those who voted for romney. we may have lost the election, but our principles,values and love of country, free markets, supply side economics, and capitalism continue to make us winners.

    congratulations to those who voted for obama. you again selected a man who didn’t grow up in this country so never learned american values. you selected a socialist president and you are now responsible for what happens to this country. you now are responsible for all the babies killed in partial birth and post birth abortions. responsible for the taxing of those people who work so hard to succeed and help others along the way and are then taxed for their achievement. for allowing our service people in foreign countries to die because we refuse to protect them. for forcing religious institutions to go against their beliefs. giving out stimulus money to companies that fail, food stamp programs to enable people not to work, health care that will harm so many people. where is this money coming from – well, a lot of it is coming from china – find out how much we borrow from china to pay for all this s–t. God help you.

    i am going offline until i can come to terms as to what happened to this great country. please hold emails and phone calls until i decide if i want to come out of my little piece of heaven again. right now, i want nothing to do with this country and if i have to look at that man’s face for another four years, i have no idea what i will do. first, i suppose, is not to watch any news programs and stop reading the papers. right now i am so sick at heart, it will take time to recover

    i just don’t understand this country anymore.

      one day… down the long dark road we’re now on… we will look back to last night and SEE…… the country that SO many sacrificed for… was finally gone and will never again be regained. yesterday was the final tipping point. the majority of this country now WANTS big government and to get everything they can (with no concern as to how it gets paid for). i’ve long wondered if there was truth in the concept : “a people gets the leader it deserves”. we (most likely) didn’t deserve any better a leader than the pathetic man we’ve had for the last 4 years. we didn’t deserve a man as decent and good as mitt romney. may God truly have mercy on us…. (but i wouldn’t blame Him if He didn’t).

  • sharinite

    If you look at the number of voters in a particular way, it should offer us an opportunity, if we but have the brains, guts and heart to take it. Take down the media…we have been doing so in print…and tv dropping too. The viewership for ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS is paltry compared to the more than 57 million Americans that voted for Romney. The biggest viewership was on NBC for the debate and that was only 12,391,000. But what is interesting for us is that Fox News, a cable station, garnered 11,474,000 million viewers also….imagine for a moment what 12 million of us could do to the “commercial” stations…and how we could launch Fox into the stratophere. Nothing hurts like the bottom line getting less and less and less. If we don’t watch the commercial stations (which, belong to you and me anyway), what do you suppose their advertisers will do? But, it has been my experience for decades that most people who start movements or organizations to help left or right, end up doing it because it makes them money….not that they don’t care, or want things different, just that it becomes a bit less important because of money of power. Anyway, just my thoughts. What I do know is that the majority of Americans are decent folk. We don’t spew hate like the Left. We don’t lie like the Left. And we take care of those in need….government can’t! But, if we don’t take some control in the next three years, then we will be faced with over 50% takers. So, are you a taker or a worker…that will make the difference!

    Gov. Romney, I was one of your poll watchers in FL yesterday and was both proud and thrilled to do a small part for your campaign. I dreaded putting Fox News on this morning as I had a sick feeling you were not to be our next President. I pray that you and your beautiful family along with the Ryan’s know that you are respected and admired by so many of your supporters. Thank you so very much for your Love of Country.

  • LeighLeigh

    One thing is for certain….if Obama truly wants to act like a President, he MUST have Harry Reid removed from the Senate Majority Leader. He said he would NOT work with the House about 72 hours ago, before the election…..The Republicans increased their margin in the House which is a MANDATE by the people not to let Obama increase taxes on all of us with increasing the existing tax code percentages on all of us on January 1st….The house and the senate have to work together and Obama is going to need the obstructionist Reid, and not raise taxes on ANYONE….what the president doesn’t realize because he knows nothing about business or the economy, is that raising taxes is not the same as raising revenue!!!!!!! Tax rates can be lower across the board, while cutting out loopholes….maybe cut the home mortgage deduction, or the child tax deduction, definitely cut out ALL corporate loopholes and lower their tax rates which are the highest in the world!!! Make it easy for us to do business, not penalize us because the idiots that voted for him want more stuff from the gubment!! We are in a HUGE problem with the looming financial cliff….something has to be done and the first thing Obama needs to do is call Mitt Romney to meet with him in the Oval Orafice and give him a lesson in supply side economics 101.

    Classy family. I’m sure we’ll hear of another Romney in politics soon. Just please pick a state other than Mass. please! LOL. Thank you for your effort & work. Ditto for the Ryans. Back to work Paul, we need you in there. I can’t wait to see that first House-Obama meeting at the table, Paul & Obama….he was snarky w/ him years ago, can’t imagine it will get any better!
    Yes, the media helped Obama tremendously. We knew they would. The party knows they do. But, Romney’s team made a decision not to use conservative radio or internet sites much either, if at all. Mistake. Just as I think it was a mistake not to use Ryan more w/ things like Leno or Letterman or Stewart, why not, what do you have to lose, but, an election……….. Media is there, you have to use it, & outsmart them. Except Candy Crowley, no way to beat that, if only there were some video of Obama saying it was not terrorism somewhere….I’m sure the networks would have rushed that out!
    While I am no fan of Christie’s over the top Bromance photo-ops w/ Obama, his slow Romney support days after to the press, his anger w/Romney ‘team’……if the Romney campaign was that strong, that far ahead, a photo-op should not have swayed voters in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, WV, VA, NC, NV…..
    Next time, GOP candidate, it’s Florida, Florida, Florida, then VA, NC, IN, CO, & NV & NM – no reason to be losing NM & NV & CO – work on that GOP.

      Re your suggestion about using more “entertainment media” – while BHO probably used it to gain his edge, I have no illusions that Romney, Ryan or any Repub would get the same kiss-kiss treatment. This is one of the biggest dilemmas that we must figure out before the next election.

      Same with the “news magazine” shows. We just have to find a way to bust that double standard.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    what they put themselves through for the opportunity to serve this country… i have no doubt that the romneys will continue to give of themselves and effect the kind of change people need. i pray that they get the peace and quiet and respect that they deserve and didn’t get from half this country or the liberal media for the last year. godspeed.

  • Burt Zerker

    It was unfair of us, to pin all of our hopes for this nation on Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan.

    It is up to us, as Americans, to change the deadly downward spiral that this country is now in. We can fight it every day, in every interaction, with every dollar we spend. We can choose to support what we approve of and believe in, and we have the power to ignore and starve those institutions and companies that parasitize the fruits of our labor and demean our values.

    We still have choices and power – we must use them wisely.

    Saving America is too much to put on the back on any one man. As a cohesive movement we can get America back, and back on course.

    Best wishes to you Governor Romney, and to your family and thank you for everything that you tried to accomplish. It is we, who let you down. If more of us, had gotten out and voted, our comments today would be much different.
