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.

Mittis a fine, decent, honest man. He grew up in America and understands and truly cares about this country. He´s what we needed to save this country from itself. It´s quite sad that we will never experience what a great president he would have been.

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.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit.

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely.

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition.

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
