Mitt Romney had planned to celebrate his election as the nationís 45th president with an eight-minute fireworks display over Boston Harbor.

The same company that does some of the illuminations for Bostonís Fourth of July celebration was poised to ignite fireworks within view of Romneyís party at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to celebrate a win over President Obama.

A permit filed with the City of Boston said the detonation could occur any time between 7 p.m. Tuesday, just after the first polls closed, and 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, which ended up being just before Romney conceded the race.

Instead, Atlas Professional Fireworks Displays unloaded the pyrotechnics from mortars set up on a barge near the Bank of America Pavilion and carted them back to its headquarters in Jaffrey, N.H.

They should have shot the fireworks off anyway, to celebrate Romney's defeat.

3. The Obama campaign originally planned fireworks in 2008

But Obama cancelled them, because he thought it sent the wrong message.

Does anyone remember if Bush or Clinton had fireworks when they gave their victory speeches?
