LOL!-How did Mitt Romney decide when to concede defeat? By watching Fox. And listening to Karl Rove.

Painfully hilarious:

Arriving at his suite in the Westin Boston Waterfront ­hotel, Romney received regular updates from his staff. He made small talk about the Patriots and the Celtics and played with his grandchildren. He was about to concede around 11:15 p.m when Republican strategist Karl Rove made his now-infamous appearance on Fox News Channel, insisting that his own network was wrong in calling Ohio for the president.

The concession call was canceled, followed by an hour of uncertainty. Then, after Fox ­executives dismissed Rove’s concerns and stood by the network’s projection, Romney said: Call the president.

2. Why does Mittens keep inflicting his thoughts to us. Why doesn't he just go away

 

is there any person on any side in America who gives a shit what Mittens has to say?

Has Mittens said words to the families in CT?
after all, he was Gov. just a few miles across the CT border

what a freakin' egotist he is.

and for America, why didn't he let the fireworks display go on? After all, America won by having another free election. Mittens could have afforded it, and it was probably paid for already anyhow

3. Good point about the fireworks display!

That would have been seen as a very gracious gesture. All the networks would have shown the fireworks and said nice things about Romney.

Instead, he cancelled the fireworks and cancelled the credit cards and phones of all his staff at midnight. Sore loser.
