Back in the spotlight, Romney
criticizes Obama (a.k.a. ´Nero´)

Los Angeles Times, by Maeve Reston

For Mitt Romney, there will be no next chapter in politics — at least no third run for the presidency. But in his first post-campaign interview, the former Massachusetts governor did not shy away Sunday from his criticism of President Obama and said he hoped to help the Republican Party regain its footing — from a distance. “I recognize that as the guy who lost the election, I´m not in a position to tell everybody else how to win,” Romney told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. “They're not going to listen and I don't have the credibility to do that anyway. But I still care.

It kills me too, that you are not in the White House, Gov. Romney. Everyday, I think how different things would be.

Gov. Rick Snyder should beg Mitt to return to his Michigan roots and resurrect Detroit from the hellhole it has become with decades of dumbocrat control.

Mr. Romney, hush your mouth and go back home. You should never have been the Republican nominee. You and the Republican head honchos are responsible for Obama. (Okay - those who adore the man have at it. I don´t care.)

The Republicans who sat on their hands because Romney wasn´t conservative enough have a share in the blame... and those Dems who voted multiple times for Obie.

It is the very sharp contrast between having a potus who loves America, and having a potus who hates America.

Some days I think the Misery and Despair of the O. years will never end. It is a gut-wrenching feeling.

Romney is a classy man. Clinton and Obama both were nasty and sniping about Bush. A president needs to be more than a petty gossip.

Romney was the right man to lead us out of the mess we´re in. All of you people who think that one issue politics and his religion made sitting at home the better option have NO right to complain about what we have now.

I have to admit, I really like Mitt Romney. My gut feeling is that he is our natural leader. I like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and others - but Mitt just exudes gravitas and is a financial genius. Somehow, I don´t see his loss to Obama in the same light as Dole´s or McCain´s losses. It is almost like he really won, but was cheated out of the Presidency by our America haters.

Mr. Romney is a natural leader in the FINANCIAL realm. He should be at the highest level dispensing wisdom about the economy. The interview was nice, classy and not meant to have any political meaning. It was a pleasure and I think the twin grand babies were sweet as can be. Congratulations and God bless them.

FTA: "Reflecting on the 2012 campaign, Romney told Wallace that he and his team had not done an effective job reaching out to minority voters, which he called “a real mistake.”"

If those minority voters referred to are conservatives than I´d agree.

Voting ABO was never going to overcome the fraud everyone knew would happen. Romney may have been a nice man, but his treatment of conservatives and his fellow republican candidates was a big red flag that everyone ignored in their fear of Obama.
Romney´s always been a big government gop. When did that ever change? When he said he was severely conservative? When he called out the media bias during the debates and when he disavowed Romneycare? Oh wait...

The power needs to go back to the people. The ordinary, the grass-root, the plain-spoken... the common man (or woman). That is the only way to get this country back.
Every single American has the ability to change what is happening.

I don´t "adore" Romney, but I see no point in criticizing him. I think there are traitors in the Republican camp--such as Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace and the Romney advisor who recently endorsed gay marriage--who are responsible for Obama.

I think it is hysterical that people think if Romney was more critical of Obama he would have won. What part of media control do you not understand? The media got millions of women to vote for Obama because they lied and said Romney was going to take away birth control. Please, someone serious explain what potential candidate would have been effective with people like #3 claiming to be on our side, the blatant lying by the administration on every topic, and a media that Leni Riefenstahl could have only dreamed of.

So Romney is a good man? Perhaps and so what. The voters were looking for a leader not someone to save souls. Amazingly, we had a real unemployment rate in ´12 above 17% but Mr. Financial Acumen still couldn´t make the case for change w/the electorate. Wow, what a wizard. His sycophants will continue to trot out their usual bromides and cliches; voter fraud, media meanies, disloyal conservatives, the latter a reckless slander; because they cannot handle the truth. Romney was a colossally incompetent candidate who stood for nothing and the voters knew it in their bones. Principled conservatives warned of him for years but were vilified. So, at the end of the day, the voters stuck w/the devil they knew.

I´m glad he is speaking out - at last. We need leadership from him and all who have a voice.

I wish him and Ann the best. They came across as good people who got some very bad advice. The country must now pay a price - it´s already hurting.

It´ll hurt even more if the Pubs don´t wake up and hold on to the House in 2014. At some point soon, the damage will be irreversible.

Please, Republicans: stop trying to flirt with everyone at the dance, and dance with those who "brung ya´". I´ve advocated a new party as a "least bad" solution, but "least bad" is still bad. A GOP adhering to conservative principles, with the stones to back them up, is a "good" solution - much to be preferred.

One thing I took away from an Ann Romney comment, "the consultants wouldn´t let Mitt be Mitt." Two elections that consultants have ruined the GOP nominee. Get rid of these guys/ gals whomever they are.
Mitt also said we (GoP) have to meet the needs of minorities to get their votes.How about meeting the needs of the middle class taxpayers, or meeting the needs of all contributing Americans. Do not address race, all a americans need their needs met.

Sorry for the second post, but I have to add that I love,and miss, both Ann and Mitt. I am not in their league but they seem very real to me. I do have differences with some of Mitt´s political positions, but I enjoyed hearing from both of them and wish we had been successful in electing them. God Bless them both, and all of their family. They represent good. We know what is emanating from the WH is not good, it is evil pure and simple.

Beg to differ, but the voters weren´t looking for a leader and that is why we have Obama. If he´s a leader, I´m Marilyn Monroe. Too many of them want Nanny Gov. to take care of them.

Also, I am sure that #3 is just loving Obama since Romney is so terrible in her eyes. I can only think over three more years of this sorry excuse of a president.

From the start of the campaign I felt in my heart and believed that Mitt Romney would not be a winning candidate. Nothing to do with him as a person - but I thought he would go the way of John Kerry and Al Gore, candidates who simply couldn´t make that all0important personal connection. It didn´t help that he seemed wishy-washy on issues of great importance to Conservatives. That did not stop me from voting for him, and I can only begin to imagine the agony of the loss for him and his family. They have my sympathy.

Here´s what I want to know: where was the GOP leadership/ strategists/ spokespeople during the previous 4 years? They sure weren´t trying to catch up to the DNC in terms of building organizational support. I sure wish Mitt had made a few different decisions during the campaign, but I wish even more that sober grown-ups had been in charge of the party itself.

Frankly, it is more than tedious to hear all the whining about what Mitt Romney did wrong coming from "fellow" Republicans. He would have been a great President and head and shoulders above the catastrophe we have been looking at for nearly FIVE years. Do any of those "conservatives" take the time to wonder what this country will look like after the reign of obama and his "msm"? Amen, #16, #17, #27, and #30.

For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

LONDON— With support growing for independence just months before Scots decide whether to break up with Britain, outsiders are weighing in with impassioned calls to keep the three-century-old union together. British officials from across the political spectrum, European Union leaders, corporate executives and retired military commanders have made their cases. Even David Bowie registered a plea for Scotland to “stay with us.” But there has been conspicuous silence from one major player with a lot to lose if Scotland secedes: the United States. A vote for independence would dismember Washington’s closest and most important ally, leaving behind a not-so-great Britain at

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
