Mitt's ego?
 
2012-11-20 11:46:38 AM  
Yes, he is technically correct, but, to paraphrase Jon Stewart:

Why is it when a businessman gets "stuff" by using tax loopholes they are called a "smart businessman", but, when a student tries to use student loans or a poor person uses welfare, they are "moochers" just looking for a handout?


That is the thing here. The GOP likes to say that the democrats play with "Class Warfare", but, I think the war started on the other side..... it is kind of hard for Madagascar to start a war with the U.S.

I guess I missed the part where New Jersey was a key swing state? Or I just imagined the poll analysis prior to Sandy showing that Obama was poised to win?

If anything short of assassination, outright treason, or a video surfacing of you humping a goat happens in the last week before the election, you didn't lose the election because of it. You lost the election because you campaign sucked, pure and simple.

Why is it just so hard for some people to say 'well...we go outplayed'?
 
2012-11-20 11:55:50 AM  
The important thing is to take away from this is that it was someone else's fault.

Party of personal responsibility.

The party of personal responsibility continues to shirk personal responsibility.
 
2012-11-20 11:58:59 AM  
The election was two weeks ago. People didn't buy into your bold-faced bullsh*t, that's why you lost.

Get. Over. It.

Republicans don't lose gracefully. see: West, Allen.
 
2012-11-20 12:01:48 PM  
If the comments of a Blue State governor less than 2 weeks prior to the election were enough to destroy your chances perhaps your campaign really wasn't that solid to begin with. The country had over a year to get to know you Mitt and you could not convince more than 48% or so in all that time that you were the right choice.

JerseyTim: John Sununu?


Thank you. I assumed that the reason the GOP trotted him out so often this summer was because all of the sane ones tried to sit this one out. I'm old enough to know that this guy's been a gasbag for decades.

Or win gracefully, either. Else my memories of GloatFest 04/05 are sadly mistaken.

Face it: elephants are just not very graceful

So basically Republicans suck if they win and suck if they lose.

But when they lose is a hell of a lot better for the country.
 
2012-11-20 12:31:03 PM  
New Jersey totally would have voted for Romney, but they got so confused by seeing their governor speak to the President, that they all decided to vote for him.

Tell me Mitt, why did you lose all of your home states again.
 
2012-11-20 12:31:49 PM  
Geez....how many reasons are they going to invent as opposed to accepting the simple fact that Mitt Romney is a political turd that finally got flushed down the candidate commode?

Then again, this is the GOP, so I suppose this whining will go on forever.

Mittens is far too wonderful to ever lose at anything. It must be someone else's fault.

whistleridge: Why is it just so hard for some people to say 'well...we go outplayed'?


Because that might cast doubt on the Republican message. And we all know their message is fine.

I must have had some other article open, because, I was replying to an article about Romney losing because of the "people want stuff" line, not because Obama acted presidential and the Governor actually thanked him for that, and didn't go "Well, you still suck, get away from me dude".
 
2012-11-20 01:09:10 PM  
He's blaming everyone but himself, isn't he?
Thank God this guy isn't going to be president.

This is what happens when you go your entire life without being told "No".
 
2012-11-20 01:16:54 PM  
Good governance is bad politics - that's Mitt's lesson for the day.
 
2012-11-20 01:20:52 PM  
Christie steps out of the Fox News conservative blogger reality distortion echo chamber bubble to deal with a real life issue and he's the problem.

I could see if they lost because they ran out of cake . . .

Guess Mitt should have released his tax returns and gotten the attention off Christie.

We're going to have to start keeping a new list: Reasons Mitt Romney Lost The Election because it still seems to be growing by the day.
 
2012-11-20 01:24:35 PM  
I wonder if this paragraph:

On Sunday a Drudge Report headline criticized Christie for appearing on Saturday Night Live "as residents suffer," and on Monday night he was still being blasted on Fox News's The Five. Co-host Eric Bolling labeled Christie a RINO, and said he "acted like a Democrat" by giving a "slobbering wet kiss to Obama days before the election" and showing up on "Weekend Update" "while Jersey suffers from power outages, destroyed homes, and massive job losses."



has anything to do with the fact that after Christie praised Obama Rupert Murdoch got him on the phone and DEMANDED that Christie publicly "re-endorse" Romney?

and am I the only one bothered by the fact that a guy who own the biggest cable news channel int he country and dozens of newpapers and TV stations around the country, was personally cheeleading for one of the presidential candidates just days before the election?

Man, if only there was someone like Nate Silver BEFORE the election.
 
2012-11-20 01:25:26 PM  
I would be unsurprised if Governor Christie's statements prior to the election contributed to up to a two percentage poll shift in President Obama's favour in certain states.

As a four point poll shift in every swing state would have been required for Mr. Romney to have won the election, I also understand the blame assigned to Governor Christie: admitting error is a sign of weakness.

Guess who's coming to dinner, fat ass.
 
2012-11-20 01:25:59 PM  
Ok, let's see here. The tally so far why Romney lost pretty much adds up to "Everything in the world, but not Romney himself". The denial is strong w/ this one...

Reasons why Mitt Romney lost the election

Gifts to Hispanics
Gifts to Young People
Gifts to Women
Gov. Christie

Are you saying that every failing would be excused with "Bu-bu-bu-bu-Christie"?

He broke the lock-step of "OMG Obama does everything wrong". Once he said Barry did something good, the whole house of cards came tumbling down.
 
2012-11-20 01:27:42 PM  
Christie stands "too close" to Obama? Gets accused of "french kissing" Obama? Why are Republicans so consumed with homosexual imagery?

/wait, I know

Done in five; with a helpful assist from his campaign team. In retrospect, they didn't have the ability to figure out how to play Connect Four without farking it up.

One of them questioned why he had boarded Mr. Obama's helicopter, according to people briefed on the conversations.

You sure as Hell didn't expect him to walk, did you?

Ok, I'll start:

Hurricane Sandy

Debate moderators
Obama's gifts
Chris Christie
Todd Akin
Richard Mourdock
Karl Rove


NOT ROMNEY
