Romney loyalist is still a thing? Do they live deep in jungle covered islands and not realize the campaign is over?

In Utah 2123, there will be a small town populated by the Romney Remnant branch.  Three miles away there will be an even smaller town populated by the Reorganized Romney Remnant branch.  Fortunately, these two will consider the other their biggest enemy.

That has to be one of the most painful and awkward portmanteaus I've ever seen.

Much like Romney's 2012 campaign.

So ... Romney is too arrogant to stay out of the '16 race?

Sweet!

1)   There was the New Jersey governor's barring Romney from raising money in the Garden State

Waah.

2)   his unwillingness to answer vice presidential vetting questions

WTF?  If someone doesn't want to run with you, back the fark off.  Was Romney running for President or King?

3)  and his highly autobiographical convention keynote speech.

It was still better, or at least entertaining, than most of them.  Not great, but at least he wasn't dressing down inanimate objects.

4)   Most of all, though, Romney allies remain resentful of Christie's embrace of President Barack Obama as the two worked together on Superstorm Sandy relief in the waning days of the campaign, which Romney backers believe boosted Obama's bipartisan bona fides and cost Romney valuable swing votes.

Oh give it the fark up already!  If Sandy hadn't occurred, it still wouldn't have put Romney over the top.  The math and the path just wasn't there.

Honest introspection, people.  Christie was not the cause of the campaign's problems.

Everyone is saying this right now, but I'm not seeing any cites. I also cannot figure out how this would actually work. How can a Governor keep a POTUS candidate from raising money in a state?

I think he asked Romney not to fundraise after Sandy.  But I'm just guessing.  I don't recall clearly.

from what I've heard, Romney was denied (via asking) fundraising in NJ after he had rejected Christie for VP

Arguably, he made a terrible choice overlooking Christie for Ryan. Imagine a Christie/Biden debate. Now THAT'S entertainment!

And if that's true, add another "political retribution" log to Christie's fire.

"By 2050 the party had degenerated into nomadic bands of warlords, all claiming to carry the One True Reagan with them. Woe befell a member of the Trickledowns who crossed the 7th fairway of the Hill City Shiners without speaking the Talisman of Gipp-Porr for safe passage. In the Citadel of True Conservator pilgrims would offer their most succulent catamite to gain the favor of Lm'Baw and be anointed with the Pudding."

As I understood it he answered the questions and the Romney campaign decided he was a liability. In much the same way as the McCain campaign decided Romney was a liabiliity.

I love that there are people who still think that's the problem. Thank God our fascists are basically quite stupid otherwise we'd be REALLY buggered.

I think Romney wanted a photo op with Christie after Sandy for fundraising purposes and Christie denied the photo op.

I was in a discussion with someone at work the other day that was getting real pleasure from this whole thing. He was CERTAIN that if Christie hadn't done the whole Sandy thing with Obama, Romney would have won. I tried to explain to him that there were other reasons why people didn't vote for Romney, but he was adamant that it was Chris Christie that hurt Romney's chances and not Romney himself; as if Romney had a chance in the first place.

True.  They were forcefully "reality averse."  Looks like things haven't changed much.

Which was really the core problem for them all along.  And that started with Romney and filtered down.

Honestly, I would have liked to see that. Ryan was just a swarmy fark who had never went up against someone willing to cal him on his bullshiat like Biden did. Christie and Biden would have went at each other and Christie, for all his bullshiat, at least isn't nearly as reprehensible as Ryan is.

So wait. Christie was not supported by someone so he decided to act petty and get revenge?

Why, this is so out of character for Christie. How strange.

FTA...

Frank VanderSloot, one of Romney's national finance chairman, said he found it "peculiar" that Christie declared he "could care less about" presidential politics in the week before Election Day, when he was dealing with the fallout from Sandy.


Crikey, the names of these rich assholes. Who's the next chairman, Reginald Cummerbund?

From what I understand, they didn't "overlook" Christie. They took a look into his background, classified it as "full of potential landmines", and passed.

True. NJ did lose him the election though. If he and the rest of the GOP blogosphere/propaganda arm didn't freak the fark out over Christie and Obama and made it such a big deal, it wouldn't have added to Romney's image of being a spoiled rich kid who isn't happy unless he gets his way

You know that cartoon of the rich guy watching his TV on election day and fuming, while his servants are looking on and smiling?  Well, I can't find it on Google, so just imagine I posted it here, because that's what a Mitt Romney loyalist might look like.

Yes, but I even think "bipartisanship" is a strong word.  They're mad at civility and respect of office.  Touring and assessing the damage from Sandy wasn't trying to get legislation passed or anything of the sort.

If you're not Jan Brewer sticking your bony, nicotine-stained finger in Obama's chest and dressing him down, you're a traitor to the cause.
