It's like the old song says:

"I woke up this morning and both cars were gone.
And I got so mad, I threw my drink across the lawn."

I'll bet she's even blaming the hired help thinking that they voting for Obama.

I'm worried about Ann. I hope she can get back up on that horse.

Can we stop talking about these people?

Of course. But their tears are quite delicious. And bathing in them is good for the skin.

It's time we as a nation acknowledged the hidden pain of the fabulously wealthy.

Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who's having a liver transplant soon: "I'll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment."

Sorry, but I don't buy the sincerity of this for a second. And how did TFA author know about it unless it was deliberately released?

Friends said Romney has mentioned the Clinton Global Initiative as a model he might replicate.

Why not just join it. Why do you have to be king Mittens.

Also, this WaPo piece almost reads like a puff piece. Stupid liberal media. Can you imagine the same subject matter in a Fox article, only with Obama as the loser?

"Obama cries on his wife's shoulders, or so we're told. He's a completely broken man these days."

"He's not a poor loser," said John Miller, a meatpacking magnate who co-chaired Romney's finance committee and owns the beach house next door. "He's not crying on anybody's shoulders. He's not blaming anybody. ... He's doing a lot of personal introspection about the whole process - and I'm not even sure that's healthy. There's nothing you can do about it now."

God forbid he reflect and learn anything. Full speed ahead, Republicans!

I liked the part where they made Al Gore out to be a fat, disheveled and broken old man. Mitt will rise above that fate. I'm sure a Nobel Prize, best selling book and world tour filled with college girls who idolize him won't befall him heh.

He has made no public comments since his concession speech in the early hours of Nov. 7

They misspelled "wouldn't STFU".

Is there anything accurate in this article?

It admits he lost.

Aww, poor spoiled rich biatch. I feel oh so bad for you, honey. Really. Gosh, can you imagine if she had to be the wife of the loser AND poor? She'd hang herself.

I was no Romney fan, but piling on his wife for no reason a month after the loss is petty, submitter.

By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney's wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses.

Romney really put her through hell too, dragging her all over the country knowing how sick she is. No one seems to mention what a dick move that was.

FTFA: By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney's wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses.

is really not the same thing as:

Submitter: "Perhaps no one has been left more destroyed from the recent election than Ann Romney. Having believed her destiny in life was to become First Lady, she's now struggling find satisfaction riding any of her million dollar horses"

Putting that last part in quotes is definitely piling on Ann. Gratuitous, even. Yes, the article sucks but there's just no need for this.

She deserves as much criticism as is being given. She interjected herself into a national debate as a smokescreen for her husband on key issues and delivered an Olympic quality faceplant that Rafalca would be jealous of. I sincerely wish she and that turd of a husband would fade away into history.

Not sure I'm for piling on Ann at this point, but Mitt would have been better off if she had learned to STFU.

She's not a child - she was a key campaigner for him and a clear political figure in his campaign. I and many other people completely loathed her. We soak up the shadenfraude with glee.

They forced themselves into our lives for the last year and a half. I didn't ask them to do that. In return they should expect some pubic shaming.

All candidates' wives are key campaigners at that level. My point is-- the election is over and they lost. Searching her out for the sole purpose of mocking her and basking in her(admittedly self-created) humiliation is unseemly. We have more important things to consider than historical footnotes.

Came here to say this.

I'm enjoying their tears. Please, cry more.

I am puzzled by people who believe in destiny. From my perspective it seems they just want some sort of divine sanction for themselves. "God wanted me to have a gangbang with 20 muscular clowns...."

To be fair, newspapers like WaPo and the NY Times always run fluff pieces like this in their Sunday edition.

That's the trouble with people who always get everything they want. McCain getting the nomination in 2008 is probably the only other time that happened to them.

Ann is probably on psychoactive meds. She can't do alcohol because of her religion but I'm pretty sure she's allowed a Dr. Feelgood. She always came across as very fake to me. Moreso than Mitt. They're a perfect fit. Both power-hungry entitled narcissists.

FTFA: SAN DIEGO - The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.

I understand the importance of personal goals to mental health, but seriously, when you're 65 and have $250 million, "I'm going to sit on top of my giant pile of money" is a perfectly workable plan.

I think he'll be okay

"Repeal and Replace"

What a farking joke.

Those piece-of-shiat multi-millionaires should've lost to Obama by Mondale levels. Thanks to racism and billionaire backers and Citizens United, that didn't happen. But boy was there enough votes! Landslide even with those factors. HA HA SUCK IT NEOCONS.

Romneys: No, you can't have the presidency. Not yours.
