Mitt Romney gave his first post-election interview and expressed his anguish over losing the presidency.

"It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done," he told Fox News Sunday. "The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads." Lamenting that Obama is doing none of that, Romney added, "you know, Nero is fiddling."
Ann added that "if Mitt were there in the office...we would not be facing sequestration right now."

Up until the polls closed on Election day, and Romney saw Florida exit polls, he said that "we were convinced that we would win."
Romney also spoke regretfully about the 47% statement: "It was a very unfortunate statement," he said. "It's not what I meant. I didn't express myself as I wished I would have. You know, when you speak in private, uh, you don't spend as much time thinking about how something could be twisted and distorted."

Romney says he won't be taking a third shot at the White House. Meanwhile his wife Ann is also steering out of the limelight: she turned down a request to join Dancing With Stars.

Aside from the gaffes, Romney's campaign suffered from inaccurate polling till the very end. With the exception of GOP-leaning Rasmussen, every major poll in the nation had Obama winning the critical battleground states by at least 4 or 5 points. Because of the bad polling Romney never shifted his message enough to give himself a shot at winning those states.

Sorry, Romney won the vote. Obama won the inner cities who bought his BS. You know, the people who don't work. The people who died. The people who don't belong in this country. You know. The Deadbeats.

Obama won the electoral vote and the popular vote.

Just to expand on my answer, let me point out that Obama won many suburban counties like Bucks County and small towns like Quakertown. If you examine the exit polling you will find that Obama won many demographics. Romney won the older, wealthier white vote. And that's not enough to win the presidency.

Are you kidding? Romney shifted his message every day and every town he was in? He wasn't dubbed the Etch-a-sketch candidate for no reason.

I am not a rich white man but he won my vote. He won the vote from the people who understand how the economy works.The ones who believe in morals and the american dream. Obama won the vote of the people who want the world for nothing. The one too dumb to understand that the less money the wealthy have the less they will have.The ones who want to do what feels good instead of what is right.

Now my family is suffering because of the poor choice America has made.

Yeah, I understand what you're saying. It's a good and valid point. Perhaps if he actually stood for something instead of flip-flopping on health-care, abortion, gay marriage, the outcome might have been different. In the sense he would have never escaped the GOP primaries.

I never said Obama won 100% of the various demographic groups polled on Election Day. Obviously, there were exceptions. Just as Romney didn't win 100% of the senior vote, male vote, and upper-income vote.

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. These are people who pay no income tax. and so my job is not to worry about those people. Ill never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
Mitt Romney, remarks at private fundraiser, Boca Raton, Florida, May 17

so if mitt got the job he would not bother to worry about 47 percent of the people.
based on their earnings
hardly a way to get votes.

he might of missed a saying

" I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

His statement about the 47% MADE ME vote for Obama. What you say in "so called private" is real.

Romney lost due to Obama redistributing others wealth on behalf of the FSA.
(Free Shit Army) The 47 percent that take and contribute zero.
