Cohen - NY Daily News: Good Riddance

http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/the_rumble

Good Riddance to Mitt Romney
Michael Cohen

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.

4. Maybe he'll come back and do Viagra commercials.

Butt, stool softening cleansers would be more appropriate.

5. This is an excellent post mortem on the mittLies campaign! Exactly.

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.

7. Oh hell yes - pretty much most of what I wanted to say summed up there

dishonest, disingenuous, reckless, dishonorable.

I relish every account of his and Antoinette Romney's humiliation.

Terrible people (the woman - already filthy rich - drugged a horse to try to extract a better price from the buyer), terrible campaign.
