    The post mortems have been revealing thus far. In no post-ass-kicking analysis I have read has any Romney campaign staff accepted any responsibility for their loss. Geeze, we even now have Tagg Romney claiming Mitt really really didn't want to be President - but that hardly explains the six years Mr Romney spent running for the job.

    It's all part of their game, damage control spin. Never except responsibility. In the military, officers and non-commissioned officer are taught among the most important leadership characteristics is to seek responsibility and take responsibility for one's actions. Why in the world would we except any thing less from our political leaders?... I don't.

    I wouldn't want the job either but if it would help get our country back to the proud USA instead of Europe I'd take it, a lot of great leaders in history didnt want the job, they just had to step up,

    Sounds like a week long whine and cheezy comments festival for angry old white guys. I hope that guy that filmed Romney's 47% speech is on the wait staff. Maybe we'll get some more gems. And who is this Kevin Hassett person anyway? I doubt many people even know him much less have him as "one of their No. 1 targets".

    @Neo_NtheMatrix I have no compunction at all about talking about old white guys. I am one! I'm just not angry. I assume that you are married so you certainly know why it is problematic to pontificate on women. If not I'm sure your wife can fill you in on the details. As to criticizing the young'uns? It's OK by me but every time I do I remind myself of my father criticizing my generation. I don't like to acknowledge that I'm becoming my father. It's bad enough that I make the same aches and pains sounds as he did when I get up.

    47% of the citizenry do not have any ownership in this society when they pay zero federal income taxes. This group contains people of of all colors, religious belief or non belief, ages, gender and background. If someone is as you describes an old white guy states this fact then your problem here is truth, whether it is spoken by old white guys or someone else.

    @JoeBidumb Please spare me your faux outrage at me describing myself as an old white guy and go and enjoy your Christmas. Why not take a day off from demonizing half of the country?

    I think that Obama and Jimmy Carter are/were two of the better character presidents that we've had in the past century. Unfortunately both have been very weak leaders which makes me conclude that only politicians of extremely poor character make for the strongest leaders.

    That is SO "nonsensical"...Plea se tell us just how someone of "poor character" could hardly make for a "strong leader"..?!?!? What are you talking about?!?!

    "it comes off at times as calorie-heavy, boozy gripe-fest." It's good that the Romney camp keeps talking, in case there's anyone still in doubt that America avoided the disaster of this arrogant bunch being in power.

    Why is it okay to talk bad about older people? Can we disparage younger people in the same way? What about women? Are they fair game to attack?

    @Neo_NtheMatrix I'm an old white man who doesn't even like Obama but it will be a cold day in hell before I ever vote for the GOP again. It is what it is. A bunch of racist old white seniors for the most part who should be ashamed of themselves.

    @jessejaymes - And just what specifically makes the GOP racist?

    Is it supporting low taxes? Less government regulations? Small government? Living within one's means? Legal immigration over illegal immigration? What specifically is racist about the GOP? Herman Cain, Allen West, Mia Love, and Tim Scott would all like to know.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix this is just the free market at work. Losing campaign workers getting a few more rides on the gravy train before their wealthy backers stop footing the bill. And a writer, probably jealous he or she is not on the cruise being catty. Nothing more. Attacks based on names, looks, age, religion, sex. It's not ok, but when one steps into this areana it's what happens. I seem to recall pretty nasty attacks on Hillary and mitchell as first ladies, pelosi, and rachell madow is subject to regular attacks, though they usually do attack as a man. Obama gets attacked for his middle name, a religion he is not even. Some even attacked romney for being a moron. These things happen. They are big boys and girls, they can take it.

    @PoliticalSpice: "Some even attacked romney for being a moron."

    Romney has been far more successful in life than you and I put together. How can you call him a moron?

    Yeah, you can't deport an American. I know you think he's Kenyan, but he's not. Also Santa won't actually be landing on your rooftop in a sled tonight and Elvis really is dead.

    The only reason he hasn't been is because " he said he was born here!"
    You know that's all half the country needs! " he said it" , it must be true!
    If he said that man didnt have to breathe half the country would pass out from holding their breath

    Time to pack up the whine & cheese and move on.
    And yes,...I am a conservative, but seems like some just cant accept the fact that we didn't have a candidate that was able to win.
    This just sounds like sour grapes to me.
    They should be looking foward instead of backwards.

    Lest we forget the hypocrites, who are just the opposite of what they declare themselves to be; the Republicans claim to be "the moral party", " the family values party", and "the party sworn to restore honor and dignity to public office". What a bunch of creeps.

    IMMORALITY is spelled G-O-P.

    I think Hassatt is correct. Democrats are evil....hard and to the core. These are people whom are 10,000x less tolerant than they claim Republicans are. Question them on ANY level and they are ready to send you to a camp. They are quicker to use labels such as "anti-Semite", "homophobe", or "racist" faster than a conservative. And that is just a fact. They have been backing Obama's "revenge" since the day after election day. Never forget that socialists and communists are almost always at the root of most evils man has committed. Granted there are some exceptions but the bulk of human atrocities have been committed by people whom pushed forced equality.

    Wow, we agree again. Hassatt is right. Not only do the Obama supporters have no morals, but they are the most prejudiced, racist, hateful group of people in the entire country. Anyone who does not agree with them needs to be destroyed, by their own conviction that nobody can possibly disagree with them and deserve to live. But of course, they want the decent, taxpaying people to keep shelling out the dough so they can continue their liberal, socialist handouts. America got what it asked for. In 4 more years Obama will succeed in making this place a complete train wreck.

    Wait, WAAAIIIIITT........!!
    After Karl Rove and Dick Cheney, this maroon wants to talk about "low morals!?" I think facilitating a war for profit in which thousands die, including thousands of young Americans , is pretty damned immoral.
    Oh, and the Obama team crashed Romney's campaign computers? Maybe those old white alcoholics are wanting in tech skills.

    For a bunch of people who feel sorry for themselves and want nothing more than to lick each others..........political wounds, shall we say then that's the place for them. However, I have a problem with the whole 'I have more and better morals than you' mentality. I work with a woman, about 30 years old. She is catholic, divorced, two kids with two different men, one of which still will not marry her 6 years after the kid was born, has taken advantage of medicaid and wic, and yet feels the need to look down at people like herself. She is as irresponsible, godless, immoral, and unethical as the people she judges, but sees herself as immune from that same judgment. When you compare morals, you must look at everything YOU have done and continue to do and support. If you see yourself in the mirror, it's best to keep your mouth shut.

    Dang, good thing you're around to provide that judgement... ;)

    @DARSB Just a little more irony for ya, I'm not religious, I'm not divorced, and I have no children out of wedlock. How can that possibly be??(yes, I'm laughing)

    Yea I think team Obama has better morals than team Romney team Obama didn't run false tv ads over again that were proven to be lies and say they were true and facts don't apply to mitt Romney
  • #108

    @JoeBidumb oh boy there were a few tv ads that lacked the truth lets just start out with the biggest one the jeep ad that was proven false and debunked the first time it aired but those desperate fools at the mitt Romney camp chose to keep airing a lie for a tv ad and it hurt them and that moron idiot Mormon said himself he's not going to let facts get in the way or dictate how he would run his campaign and as a result of that he ran the worst campaign in modern history filled with lies and gaffs mitt romneys favorite trick to do was the double foot in the mouth back flip

    Calling the near 51% of voters who voted for supporters of a camp of fascists seems quite unfair. Calling democrats racist when more people of races other than white voted for Obama seems off as well. People who support the rights of minorities can't be THAT evil. The difference between Democrats and Republicans isn't just what they believe in. So far, many Republicans have made it seem like they completely hate Democrats. Not "disagree with" or "dislike" Democrats, but "hate" Democrats. If 51% of 122,000,000 American voters are supporting "evil fascists," does that make around 62 million Americans evil? No. It is, in fact, hateful to hate such a huge group of people.

    the bottom line is..... he lied to get elected. he was not born in hawaii.. anybody who has kept up with it knows. if he will lie to get elected then theres no limit to what he will do to get what he wants. the question is.... whats his end game.. but dont get me wrong.. romney was a crook too.. i didnt vote for either of them

    Mitt Romney and the GOP are ones without morals. Morals like letting people die in the streets or sending young US troops to Iran to die for another war.
