Who ever said Romney doesn't have a sense of humor?:-)Mitt Romney's concession sermon...
My friends... I know I speak for Ann and myself when I express our heartfelt thanks for all the work you did for us during the recent election.
I wanted to be your President very badly and I'm sure I would have been, but it wasn't to be. The American people decided on another leader and I honor their choice.
Sadly, the Mormon Church, the faith we all love, invested everything on this bad bet and we will henceforth become a branch of the Presbyterians who are, apparently, better with their money and less given to grand, pointless gestures.
From now on you can address me as, "Bishop Paddy O'Romney and Ann as, "my wee, bonnie lass." We made a deal and we mean to stick by it.
On the plus side, there's a lot of haggus, enough now to last us years and years and years. I hope you like haggus?(a wee laugh ripples through the assembly.)
We Mormons are used to disappointment, I know how much many of you invested in our cause, but, on the bright side, we're a church so it's tax deductible. When Mormons give to "charity" we mean, "The Church," so we're able to skirt those job-killing tax laws just like the Presbyterians and Catholics have been doing all these years.
So, in closing, let me quote the Poet, Bobby Burns and say, "The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
(The best laid schemes of Mice and Men
oft go awry,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!)"

In Q / A format, here's the basic ECO101 our idiot-in chief doesn't have a grasp on...
Q) Who owns most businesses in this country?
A) The wealthy.
Q) What will happen if Obama forces wealthy people to "pay more taxes"?
A) Wealthy business owners will do virtually anything to protect GP margins, including permanent employee layoffs
(permanent employee layoffs = you & I)

Was just getting ready to post that myself. It's already started to unravel and it hasn't even been a week yet.

Just because I said you were fat, drunk, bald, dumb, flaccccid, impotent and conceived from bad seed is no reason for you to hold a grudge and fabricate this fat ruse you've been running, silly youtubes and statements. And isn't it better for the racists on this thread to know you're one of them, Irish?
They were hurting you when you were playing Black face.
And besides, debils already playing that part.
True, it has not been such a civil break up, but I believe in don't get angry and just take some "things".
Take IT ALL. tee-hee-hee ...
That is why I am resilient. And relentless.
Not insatiable as you errantly stated.
Now take it like a man!!

Obamacare requires employers with over 50 employees to provide medical insurance or be fined $2000 for each employee.
Therefore, not only are employers NOT hiring anyone but are letting go of employees in order to have less than 50 in their hire.
Obama promised that people could keep their same doctors, but if employees start dumping their employees onto the government exchanges, they will have to take what they get.
Jon Levitz said it best in a tweet today: "I can't wait to go to a hospital run by the DMV."
Welcome to the next four years. And thanks again for doing your part to make sure they are as miserable as you were warned they'd be.
It's already starting to unravel and it hasn't even been a week yet. Massive layoffs are taking place all around the country.

A one time 5% wealth tax on the richest would pay off the national debt! This according to rayguns budget director!
THE USA IS FILTHY RICH!
MORE LIKE OVER $200 TRILLION!
Counting gov plus citizens.
The Gov owns billions of acres of land. Here and in foreign countries. One holding in Bong Kong is rumored to be worth $16 trillion! The national debt.
Plus the oil under the land in USA: another $200 trillion!
Fiscal cliff? Hardly!
THE USA IS FILTHY RICH!
A one time 5% wealth tax would pay off the whole debt!
The richest protest 5%!!!!
Selfish greedy azzzzzholes!
Research this! USA COULD BE WORTH OVER $400 TRILLION AND OWES $16 TRILLION.

I am, always and forever. What did you say?
#800879 Nov 9, 2012
That was my take too.
Those who voted for Obama, sadly, I'm afraid, will live to regret it. So will the rest of us.
#800881 Nov 9, 2012
Homer, you really are a likeable poster, but you are much too clueless for your own good.
Those tax hikes aren't going to do anything but continue to prevent employers from hiring.
People across the country are being laid off by the droves already in anticipation of Obamacare and tax hikes now that it's a done deal - and it hasn't even started yet.

You ignorant uninformed moron. You aren't even aware that the Benghazi Post was in fact a CIA operation! It was a CIA failure...not a political, foreign policy failure. You're a bunch if willfully unnformed morons. A bad joke.
