I'd say Romney is a baby killer.
Did you see him yank that fetus from Ann?

Romney was too nice of a man to go up against chicago thug politics. Of course this latest blurb is purely more Obama BS, "made for media sound bite", he has no intention of listening to Romney and he has no intention of reaching across the aisle in Congress. His patronizing style is his biggest weakness.
You may be right. I call most everything Obama says that hints of bipartisanship a ruse designed to fool the easily fooled. There's either an ulterior motive behind it or he needs something from them.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if Obama let Romney bail him out since he doesn't have to deceive his followers anymore just to win another election.

But, again, you may be right. He's much too narcissitic to start changing colors now, so to speak.

Big Bird pooped on Romney is why he lost. Voters preferred Big Bird over Romney/Ryan.

Any moron can say I'm going to create 12 million jobs.
Face it carol. You're a member of an extinct party.
Think you will live to see another republican win the White House?
Romney laid out his plans quite succinctly on his website and repeated his 5 step plan quite a few times.

You were probably watching Sesame Street and crying about losing Big Bird.

OK big mouth, what loopholes was Romney going to close to balance out the 5 trillion tax cut?

Funny, Paul Ryan said he did not have a list yet here you are, claiming he did. Because Mitt Romney had a plan.

How was Romney getting us energy independent? Convert cars to run on coal? What was the plan?

Romney had no plans, only goals.

You should really learn the difference.

Tuesday was not a good day for the Muslim-baiting wing of the GOP, with the defeat of Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and with onetime presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann holding her House seat in Minnesota by a razor-thin margin. They have been among the most high-profile members of Congress to spend a goodly amount of their political capital chasing down the bugaboo of Muslim jihad in America.

Bachmann won her re-election by barely 4,200 votes. Her spotlight-grabbing antics, a laundry list of kooky comments and presidential campaigning, probably played into that, but the Associated Press noted that her recent attempt to tie Hillary Clinton’s top aide to the Muslim Brotherhood, which earned Bachmann a smackdown from John McCain and other Republicans, contributed to her unpopularity among constituents. As for one-term West, who left his 18th District in south Florida for an ostensibly more GOP-friendly one in the 22nd District, he seems to have lost to Democrat Patrick Murphy by only 2,500 votes. He has filed injunctions for a recount and an examination of the electronic voting machines, citing “irregularities” and violations on the part of local election officials.

West is one most Islamophobic pols around, a compatriot of jihad hunters Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, who not only claim that Islam is evil, but insist that Muslim radicals have infiltrated the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and top levels of government. Geller recently made headlines when her group sponsored pro-Israel New York City subway ads that suggested Palestinian Muslims are “savages.”

Notes Peter Beinart at The Daily Beast:

The unfounded accusations that dozens of Communists populate the Congress’s Democratic caucus were nothing new, but his most novel legacy may be West’s inflammatory rhetoric about Muslims….West used his time in Congress to press his case that Islam is “not a religion” but a “totalitarian theocratic political ideology,” and that terrorism is inherent to the faith—not radical Islam, but Islam, writ large. He’s accused a fellow Member of Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a Muslim, of “represent(ing) the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established.”

Ellison, by the way, beat back his opponent in Tuesday’s election, Republican challenger Chris Fields, with 65 percent of the vote. Ellison, of course, was forced to defend his faith every step of the way. In one particularly atrocious instance, Fields called Ellison “militantly anti-America” in a mailer.“Being attacked for my religion never bothered me before,” Ellison told reporters.“This time around though, it was a little meaner.”

It seems that a growing number of voters just aren’t comfortable with the vitriol coming from these politicians. Also losing Tuesday were Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois, who once said he was “looking for some godly men and women in the Senate, in the Congress, who will stand in the face of the danger of Islam.” Republican Adam Hasner, another Spencer-Geller acolyte who attempted to grab West’s old seat in Florida’s 18th, lost too. The Florida Independent wrote that Hasner, who once brought anti-Muslim Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders to his state to speak, has been on a “long-time crusade against the supposed threat of Sharia in the U.S.”

“You cannot fight an enemy when you will not acknowledge that an enemy even exists, and that enemy has a name, and that is Shariah-compliant Islam,” Hasner reportedly told a conservative group in 2008.

Hasner will have plenty of time to fight “the enemy” now. So will plenty of other candidates on the state level, too. Republican Charlie Faqua, who self-published a book calling for the deportation of all Muslims, lost his election to a Democrat in the Arkansas state senate. His loss helped to flip the Senate to Democratic control for the first time since Reconstruction.

Romney had clear-cut plans for reforms that are long overdue and bold solutions.
We will now continue on the same path for another four years and neither will the democrats do anything differently, they will not even entertain the idea of major reforms.
Thanks for helping them maintain the status quo and bankrupting Medicare and Social Security even sooner. Good job.
"clear cut"?

What deductions was Romney going to eliminate?

What loopholes was he going to close

What spending was he cutting other than planned parenthood & PBS?

Accept that you had an historic opportunity and you blew it. Accept that in the worst economic environment in nearly a century you still couldn’t do what Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton did in milder recessions: defeat an incumbent president.
