Good riddance to Mitt Romney

On Tuesday night, as I watched the election returns roll in, there were moments of great joy – but one of the happiest moment came after the losing candidate delivered his concession speech and disappeared through the backstage curtains at the Boston Convention Center. I realized at that moment that I would likely never again have to write or even, for that matter, think about Mitt Romney.

Now, I understand that, as a general rule, you don’t hit a guy when he’s down. Romney suffered a crushing defeat, one that according to aides he was completely unprepared for.

But at the end of the day, Romney’s campaign should be assessed in the most accurate possible manner. Its failings should not be sugarcoated or glossed over. Instead, it should be described precisely as it was: One of the most cynical, dishonest and disreputable presidential campaigns in modern American history.

From the Republican primaries to practically the final days of his failed presidential campaign, Romney was either blatantly lying about his opponent’s record, adopting policy positions of convenience that ran counter to his past positions, regularly misleading Americans about his own plans or stirring racial acrimony. I don’t feel sorry that Romney lost on Tuesday night; I feel sorry that a great nation had to be subjected to his presidential campaign.

2. terrific article

I felt for McCain. I at least thought he had a human bone. Romney on the other hand is everything I hate about rich people and you too Ann. I hope to never see you again.

5. For God's sake, the man is a millionaire many times over!

All that's been hurt is his towering arrogance.
Nothing else.
Screw him.

ashamed of themselves! DID I SAY FUCKING ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES....they are wrong, wrong, wrong and I hope they don't learn a thing from this travesty of a campaign and keep nominating these terrible candidates...their whole primary was a bunch of total losers this cycle.
