Mitt Romney Loses 50,000 Facebook fans

Source: Examiner.com

A real friend is there through thick and thin. Well, that is what we all hope and expect from our friends. Mitt Romney is not feeling the same love he once did before the election. In fact, three days after he conceded in the presidential election to Barack Obama, he lost 50,000 Facebook fans. Since that Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012, he has lost fans at a rate of 847 an hour.

Some people are actually adding him. Word has evidently got out and the right wingers are trying to plug the damn. More are still leaving, just not as quickly.

7. Lonely Republicans hanging on?

The guy hasn't been seen since he walked off stage Tuesday night. He probably found a crack in the Earth and jumped into it. I doubt he's responding on Fb.

Besides, you'd have to be really lonely to have him as a 'friend.'

12. The nut jobs are on Facebook claiming the election was stolen

One woman claims 61% of African Americans voted twice. They can't deal with loss. They are mean, nasty, crazy people, and I despise them.

I've been skewering them for a while but have grown bored of it. Now they are letting their blatantly racist side out.

31. It's not even fun to read anymore.

These people live in some horrible alternate reality. All I can do is try to make myself feel sorry for them that they live their lives in such abject fear of everything that is alien to their comfortable, little bubbles. If it weren't for that, most of these loonies wouldn't be susceptible to the shit spewed by Fox"News", right-wing talk radio, and all the other assholes who have convinced them that Slick Willard is some sort of "decent", "moral" person, who is going to save us all from that horrible commiesocialistfacistmuslimneegro bastard.

32. victims of the conservative entertainment complex

as David Frum insightfully observed. They are willingly complicit in their own exploitation by billion dollar right-wing media, and it has driven them around the bend.

18. I am enjoying every second of Romney's utter humiliation.

That probably makes me a bad person, but damn, this is awesome. He and Queen Ann thought they somehow "deserved" the presidency, and it is deep bone satisfying that over 62,000,000 of us "little people" he despised and disregarded rose up with one voice and said, "NO."

God, I am loving this. I can't stop reading about it, lol.

21. The were not really friends

Friends stick with you in thick and thin.

But Romney doesn't have any friends, just associates of one sort or another. These people were just voting associates.

23. They are still hoping to turn things around and WIN this one!

Here is one new post:

U must do a investagation on signed voters but no vote regestering. This can mean a win in PA. !

Obviously, not everyone there is a "friend" because you need to friend to post:

Brian Hamilton What makes any of you think a multi-millionaire corporate overlord with bank accounts in the Grand Cayman Islands gives a flying fcuk about YOU?! You're DELUSIONAL. Romney is the rich 1%. Now go pray to your invisible sky friend and see a therapist.

28. And the 1960 election COULD still be won by Nixon if we could just find those dead voters in

Chicago (and Texas, Missouri, New Jersey, and Hawaii) Of course in the process we might turn up the dead voters in Southern Illinois and California who voted for Nixon
