After nearly six years trying to become president, Mitt Romney conceded he had lost to President Barack Obama early Wednesday morning, declaring that "this election is over, but our principles endure."

"I believe in America," Romney said one final time, repeating his campaign's slogan, decided long ago. "I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. But the nation chose another leader."

5. His principles are greed, money, power... Accumulating as much as possible of each.

Not sure to what end he wants so desperately to do so but I know it was extremely important to defeat him.

15. How about his integrity, does he say anything about that? The only thing that endures in his life,

is money and interest.......lots and lots of money and lots and lots of interest.....on ill gotten gains hidden in places other than the USA so that he and the misses don't have to pay taxes here in America. Also, what's hidden in their tax returns, that also endures......I'm so glad this pathetic excuse for a human being couldn't buy his way or lie his way into the White House.

17. It would have been beyond shocking if he'd said anything else.

He's not the sort of person to learn, grow, and become a better person as life goes on.

If he were, he wouldn't have been such an unmitigated asshole by the time we all got to know him.

27. my hopes havent changed either

I want to see him prosecuted for tax evasion. I will watch the suit brought by the UAW for stealing 15 million from the auto bailout loan stimulus and hiding it in Annes trust fund. I want to see him behind bars. I am also going to watch them bring charges against sheldon adelson . We must fight fire with fire. We must bring these criminals to justice.
I watched the Rmoney give his very polite speech , what I heard him saying is please dont investigate me now.......
ya, fuck you mitt, we have 4 agants on it by 1 am nov 7. lets finish him. make sure this creatin is done for good.

you have to kill them twice, they always come back.

32. Romney: "My Principles endure...

... now explain what 'old and busted' means."

The only thing Mitt is good for now is a walk on in a Mad Men episode about landing the Coppertone QT quick tanning lotion account.
