of thanks to supporters

CNN, by Kevin Bohn

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/11/2012 5:31:00 AM

Washington - Mitt Romney sent a note Saturday to his campaign backers saying he and his wife "cannot thank you enough for supporting and believing in our cause." "This was more than just a campaign - this was a national movement," he said. "Thank you for the work that you did - going across neighborhoods to knock on doors and put up yard signs. Thanks for making phone calls, coming to rallies, donating funds, and convincing friends and family to join our team."

I suspect most of us L-Dotters got one.

What an opportunity America had to have a truly great and honorable leader. Instead, "we" chose Zero for 4 more years. So far, in the first few days after the election, he has blocked millions of acres of federal lands for drilling, the Petraeus scandal was revealed, his bipartisan olive branch was cut off with his demand to raise taxes on the rich, HHS has started releasing their new Obamacare requirements. It is going to be a long, miserable four years....

Romney is a nice guy and not the kind who finishes last. The Beltway Republican leadership deliberately spent two years in alienating the grassroots - he and his advisers enthusiastically went along with it. End of story.

I, too thought that many of my fellow L-dotters would be reading the note.

One has to appreciate an act of class from a good family--vilified the way they were by the classless Obama and his media army.

If the leadership and goodness of Mitt Romney didn´t appeal to the country, then we are in big trouble. It doesn´t say much for the character of this country, not to mention brains.

Decent men like Mitt Romney will stay home and enjoy their families.

We will be left with the scum of the earth to "lead" us.

Romney conducted himself as a gentleman with morals and character. That is objectionable to most of the country because it shows up their own low class behaviors.
He can hold his head high and be proud of himself.

I surely wish him even more success in whatever he´s called upon to do, be it business or another run at an office.

My husband and I each received Mitt´s thank you note.
Does anyone think for one moment that The Won would have been as gracious in defeat?
He would have exhorted his folks to get revenge.
He would have had them burn this country to the ground.
I believe now that God saved us from a savagery we could only imagine.
I am unhappy, devastated that Mitt and Paul lost but I think had they won, we would be paying for 1000 years.

Unfortunately more scum now live in America and vote democratic. And we are being told we must relate to these people. Okay, I understand what they are implying but how do you relate to people who do not want to work, who have no interest in their education, who do not believe in personal responsibility, who have baby after baby without being married etc. etc. I imagine in a short period of time Mr. Romney will be able to say "I told you so" but won´t because he is too decent.

I am sorry to say that America 2012 does not deserve a man like Mitt Romney - a man of integrity, intelligence and patriotism as president.
America deserves Obama.
I have never been so ashamed of my country in all my life.

In 1980 we were smart enough to correct the mistake the electorate made in 1976 in electing the incompetent peanut farmer in knee-jerk reaction to Watergate. 32 years later, with an even more incompetent - and this time anti-American - president more than worthy of being thrown out, America opted for four more years of national suicide.
So shameful.

Although I have not (yet)received a note from Mr. Romney, I would like to write to him to express my sorrow that he lost, and gratitude for the upright effort he made for those of us who love this country. Would one of you who received his note be kind enough to respond with the return address on your note? Thank you so much. I will check back to the site from time to time.

Folks I´m not spending a dime for the holidays or the next one. In my household we will learn about a spiritual Christmas, no more movies unless they are conservative leaning. I´m not going to feel bad about the job losses or the outsourcing. Am I going to feel the pinch? of course. Do I know if we can survive this storm? I´m praying but I do not. I´m going a step farther and plan to punish unions in anyway possible for this miscarriage and fraud. Charity will be based on whether my values are similar or not.

Jeb Bush and the 2016 GOP Field

George Will wrote a column in which he said of Jeb Bush, “A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable” and “[he] does … deserve a respectful hearing from the Republican nominating electorate.” I agree, partly because I admire Bush, who was a highly successful, reform-minded conservative governor. His record as governor of Florida was, in fact, more conservative in key respects than Ronald Reagan’s record when he was governor of California. (Mr. Reagan signed into law what at the time was the largest tax hike ever proposed by any governor, whereas Bush cut taxes every year he was governor,

In his plurality opinion in yesterday´s free-speech case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, Chief Justice John Roberts notes an anomaly in contemporary "liberal" First Amendment jurisprudence: "If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades--despite the profound offense such spectacles cause--it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition." We´d take the point a step further. The examples Roberts cites all involve fringe political expression.(Snip)So why have the court´s "liberals" adopted a hostile attitude toward political speech, which has long been understood

Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia wants you to know that, at $174,000 a year, members of Congress are underpaid. Because Jim Moran, like others, doesn´t understand actual economic hardship and, frankly, isn´t that great at politics either. Moran is not the only public official to make a dubious claim about salary hardship in the past 24 hours. Larry Schwartz is secretary to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a position that´s a sort of like chief of staff in the state. Schwartz was discussing a proposal backed by Cuomo that would freeze property taxes on people at certain income levels.

Google is trying to register the word “Glass” as a trademark for its computer-powered glasses. But so far, the company and the U.S. trademark office aren’t seeing eye to eye. Google, which has successfully trademarked the term “Google Glass,” submitted an application last year for a trademark on just the single word “Glass,” displayed with the same futuristic font used in its marketing campaign. But the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is holding up the company’s bid. In a letter to the company last fall, a trademark examiner raised two main objections. One concern was that the trademark was too similar to

Kimberly Munley was shot three times taking down Nidal Hasan in 2009. Then she got laid off. Yet she’s never stopped fighting for the victims the military ‘betrayed’ in that shooting. Just as in the last mass shooting at Fort Hood, the massacre on Wednesday ended when the gunman was confronted by a very brave policewoman. “It was clearly heroic what she did at that moment in time,” Lt. Gen. Mark Milley said of the officer in the more recent horror. Hopefully, the still-unidentified hero in this week’s attack will be treated better than Fort Hood Police Sgt.

Fort Hood Shooting Shows
Shortfalls in Base Security

Wednesday´s rampage at Fort Hood—the second in five years at the Killeen, Texas, Army post—revealed shortfalls in Defense Department efforts to tighten security at military installations world-wide. A 2009 shooting at Fort Hood brought recommendations for security improvements, such as better detecting threats from inside the military, but the Pentagon has yet to enact several important changes, and an independent review of Pentagon practices concluded last month that current procedures are "insufficient to ensure on-base security." Wednesday´s shooting by an active-duty soldier also cast new light on enforcing a policy that prohibits enlisted personnel from carrying concealed weapons on base. The attack

The Leland Yee story is one of the most remarkable in years. A California State Senator, Yee has long been a leading spokesman for gun control–it’s all for the children, you know. A popular politician who represents around one-half of San Francisco, Yee was about to run for Secretary of State when he was arrested for gun running. Specifically, he acted as an intermediary to buy shoulder-fired missiles and automatic weapons from a Muslim terrorist group in the Philippines and import them into the U.S. There were other charges, too; the usual bribery, money laundering, and so on.

God saves the queen. He saves this honorable court. But who will save the United States Senate? The venerable institution that Democrats control and Republicans covet has lately been something of a circus. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid (D-Nev.), prevents amendments and pursues an unhinged vendetta against the Koch brothers, private citizens engaged in lawful political activity. The Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), is under political siege from right and left in his own state. Conservative populists gain presidential buzz by blowing up or shutting down Senate processes. Since the Senate is America’s pinnacle of institutional self-regard — “the

If John Kerry wants to live with his head in the clouds, he should stick to windsurfing. He’s making a further mess of everything in the Middle East. When President Obama, who lives in fantasies wrapped in pipe dreams himself, is fully awake, he should order the secretary of state to surf on home. Nobody plays desperation politics like the secretary of state. He wants to keep the “peace process,” so-called, alive if never well, and like a desperate gambler, keeps making bad bets to cover his losses until there’s no more room in the casino’s safe for his growing stack

The spin doctors who deny the existence of voter fraud have no boundaries. “Plans to fight voter fraud are based on nightmares, tall tales, and paranoid fears,” says Scott Keyes of the liberal Center for American Progress. Voter fraud is so rare “you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud,” asserts Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project. Kim Strach, the new director of North Carolina’s Board of Elections, disagrees. She just searched a database that comprises about half the registered voters in the U.S. and found 35,750 voters in her state whose

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue.

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
