Mitt Romney: 'It kills me' not to be president

By REID J. EPSTEIN | 3/3/13 9:08 AM EST
Four months after he lost to President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney says “it kills me” not to be in the White House finding solutions to the nation’s problems.

In his first television interview since the election, the former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential nominee told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" that he was convinced he’d win until Ohio’s vote came in, and that he damaged his campaign by failing to attract black and Hispanic voters and speaking too freely in his infamous “47 percent” comments.

Romney’s wife, Ann, blamed the media and Obama’s campaign for offering what she described as an unfairly skewed vision of her husband.

...................................

“I’ll look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there,” Mitt Romney said. “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation. The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads. And – and I don’t see that kind of – of leadership happening right now”

Does anyone know how to send an email to Mitt? During the campaign there was a "contact us" button. Never got a reply, of course, even to polite, laudatory inquiries. At least I hope I irritated the staff a bit.

159. Actually, no, I don't think he did from the sounds of it. He actually believes it was a close

 

campaign that he just couldn't quite get done. In reality, it was nowhere near close. At the rate the R's are going, 2014 should put the nail in their coffin. Meanwhile, Mitt is trying to somehow stay relevant, so that he can continue the fantasy that plays in his head. He is still ruminating.

that she simply cannot accept what happens during a political campaign, especially for President. Even during the campaign she came across like the media was only supposed to show the positive side. It's truly mind-boggling to believe anyone as wealthy as they are could be so naive and/or stupid!

10. No one will ever convince me he wanted the job - all he wanted was the title and prestige

He strikes me as the kind of guy who will do anything, go anywhere and say pretty much anything to pin more stars on his ego. But, once in the job he takes credit for the good and passes blame for the bad, no matter who is actually responsible. He and his wife take superficial to a whole new level.

36. "Some people run for president to DO something,

others run to BE something."

I forget who said that, or if that's the exact quote, but Romney definitely strikes me as someone who wanted the title and the pomp, and has no real idea of what he'd do or where the country should go, other than wanting to help his entitled cohort.

perhaps he thinks that if he whines and bad-mouths enough, the country will demand that he be put in the White House Right Now.
And I am sure I would hate to see any deals he put together.
Hell, he couldn't even "lead" his campaign.

when we didn't elect this dickhead as our new CEO with Queen Ann by his side. There could have been a huge banner over the White House that read "America is Now REALLY Open For Business!" and Ann could have had dressage lessons on the South Lawn. The truth is, Mitt, that in a campaign marked by massive deceit and shameless pandering to Rethug knuckledraggers and racists, you never said anything more truthful than your infamous 47% comment. It wasn't the media that sunk you or the Obama campaign. It was your own arrogant, elitist rhetoric and that insufferable sense of entitlement that rich assholes like you carry around. Yeah, just what the country needed - a "vulture capitalist" in the Oval Office. After all of those jobs that you destroyed and all those people's lives you ruined to get obscenely rich at Bain Capital just how in the hell do you think you earned the right to be president? GFY.

37. you just don't get it do you?

“It’s Mitt’s time. It’s our turn now.” A. Romney

They were supposed to be in the White House because it was God's will and even
though Mitt made his money screwing people out of their jobs, health care, and pensions
the American people, if they had any smarts at all, just had to vote to make Romney
President and Ann as 1st Queen of America because they were entitled to it.

but the bitter look on her face is from being a stuck up over privileged
bag of puss who sees people like you and me as less then herself and her
rich ass friends.

And I think after this "trotting out" the Romneys in public we will almost never
hear from them again. You can be sure the video of their interview w/Chris
Wallace will be highly edited but you just can't cover up their smugness.

chris wallace and the Romneys @ their New Hampshire lake home ....
unlikable, phony, lying, and highly edited ...... if you have 12 minutes
it is really funny .... watch the pancakes on the grill, then off grill, and then
back on the grill all in the same "conversation" .... later on Mitch says he
and wife have no help @ their lake home .... please as a landscaper I could
see that they have people there all the time.

They are so uncomfortable. The hole in the counter and A. thinks she is so very creative and original. Everything they do is for effect. I almost bailed at the pander of a sign the 'boys' gave them and is prominently displayed at the entrance. How pompous. And there's the feeling that the 'boys' (and anyone) are maneuvering around a bully of a father and a totally disconnected mother.

91. No I think she is mad @ all of "you people" for not supporting Mitt to be POTUS

After all it was God's will that Mitt should have been made POTUS and Ann would
have been made 1st Queen who the "important people of the world" would have watched
in awe as she brought style and class to the White House.

Although Romney/Ryan did make history in losing all 5 of what could be called their home states
New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Michigan, California, and Ryan's Wisconsin.

In the past and nowhere near as rich as the Romneys I have had customers (i landscape) who
remind me of Ann Romney because I could tell be the tone of their talk and how they carried
themselves that they really thought they were better then me.

Noblesse oblige is how Ann acts. I read somewhere that they did some test commercials with
Ann Romney that were shown to republican focus groups and that she tested so poorly that the
spots were never shown.

We really dodged a bullet in kicking Mitt to the curb.

93. Frankly even some

Long term Republicans, thought the Romney's were not good for America. Seriously, how they appeared on Television acting as though they were entitled to be running this country.

People had to know this was not... going.. to happen. We all watched the debates. Ryan lying though his teeth was a huge thing here on DU. We know that Joe kicked Ryan's butt in that debate. Everyone knew it, and even Republicans were mostly silent on that debate.

But I think, deep down, everyone knew..that Romney Ryan was a poor ticket. I know some of us, were afraid that we would lose this election by fraud, but as for substance, the President knew his stuff, despite the idiots who were going to vote for Romney because they were still clinging to the notion that the President didn't have a legitimate birth Certificate.

Donald Trump and Orly Tates certainly didn't help the Romney's cause.


I do know about that attitude of which you speak. I have seen it also first hand, when I was living in Santa Barbara, an area rich with very Rich Republicans. It was there, I first Joined DEAN FOR AMERICA, when he was actively running.

96. The fact that Romney had a hard time in ever getting more than 50% of the vote in primaries ..

.... in which he was running unopposed should have been a tip off. I might be wrong but
I think the majority of Romney's vote in the fall's election was that those people just didn't
like "the black guy in the White House" rather then they were taken by Romney and his idea.
Romney won some very red states just because he wasn't Obama.

75. I have some sympathy for him on that score.

 

He's essentially been doing nothing with his life except run for President since 2007. When you spend six years on a project, and it crashes and burns, it takes a while to get over it.

On the "sore loser" point, yes, I agree with you. Generally, as a matter of courtesy, the loser doesn't jump in so quickly with snipes at his opponent's "leadership" or the like. Anne is even worse, blaming "Obama’s campaign for offering what she described as an unfairly skewed vision of her husband." What, did the Republicans offer a balanced view of Obama? It was a campaign, for cryin' out loud. I guess Anne isn't used to getting any backtalk from the peasants.

to return the favor, from Republicans who kept using "Sore- Loserman " (aka Gore Lieberman) to get our goat after we lost that election to Bush. Republicans were screaming " You Democrats lost, GET OVER IT" ..as they puffed up their chest with pride. Something so stupid, as we knew how it would affect this country, having Bush as the pResident of the United States. We were right, and things just became more and more of a mess.

I hated how they used that Juvenile way to poke at his, to remind us, that they had won, like as if it was some stupid game. It wasn't a game at all...lives were on the line.

His campaign represented him, and his wife, perfectly. That's why he didn't get elected.

32. If he really cared boo hoo boo hoo...verklempt....boo hoo...but if he really cared

 

he could backchannel offer advice like ex-presidents and ex-candidates have offered
OR he could run for a different office and be part of the system

he might not have his advice taken, but instead of whining he could attempt to prod
some of the people on his side to move an inch and offer alternatives

of course, that would mean actual work, and well, he didn't want to do the work,
he just wanted the title on his desk.

Makes me wonder if he is egotist enough to think he could run in 2016, or if he is a willing
Jeb Bush pusher and this part of the Bush's plan.

(and for someone who was supposed to be such a good (HA HA HA HA HA) Ceo, he sure ran such a lousy campaign. From his wrong VP pick to everything else.

Sometimes I wondered if rich guy didn't get paid to be so bad which makes me wonder
who is fronting him, or if he is ego enough to think he should go another round (much like
Nader did in 2004 after what happened in 2000).

I myself missed the shows as I am watching Leave it to beaver and Bachelor Father on Antenna TV.
Now if Mitt were to go on Al Sharpton, then perhaps I would see him.

35. "Unfairly skewed vision" of Romney? No, Ann, he "built that".

If you want to talk about unfair skewing, how about the surgical extraction of a single sentence from a boilerplate "we're all in this together" speech and then claiming Obama was saying that business owners didn't really build their businesses, the government did?

And then, instead of simply using it on the stump for a few days as often happens with gaffes and awkward bits, your dear husband turned it into one of his major campaign themes. Somewhere off in communist non-heaven, old Pravda editors and Soviet propagandists raised their spectral vodka bottles in salute!

Furthermore, surely you haven't forgotten that clown-car parade of the Republican primaries, where the one common theme was "anybody but Mitt"? He had that much resistance within his own party, yet you'd still convinced yourself he was a shoe-in for the general election?

Let's not forget, as you apparently have, Ann, the business about only releasing two years of tax forms, and incomplete forms at that. This was an especially important item for Mitt symbolically, because it was his own father who established the tradition, and he released 12 years while directly saying that many years' worth were necessary to provide a true picture because only a year or two could be engineered to look good on the surface. Once it became clear Mitt would drop out rather than release more than he had, it sure looked like he was hiding something. Considering that he'd been angling for a presidential run for over six years, what did it say about him that he didn't use that time to make things presentable?

Go ahead, Mitt, show some leadership yourself: go to the Republican leadership in congress and start knocking heads on your own. Surely the most recent presidential candidate has some standing in the party. Or do you concede that you're washed up because you didn't deliver the Democratic president's head on a plate, the same reason Newt lost his House speakership? That your only standing now is as a fundraising prop among a few well-off constituencies?

It's a measure of how much really has been handed to you two that you still can't absorb that you lost fair and square, even in the face of naked vote-suppression tactics by your party.

You two built your own doghouse, politically. Live in it. Trust me, it won't actually kill you, and the nation is better off for it.

Same here - If Mittens has solutions - spit it out!

Problem is that he has no solutions and he isn't saying either.

Then, add on the Lyin' Ryan quotient and you would have more

I think his biggest disappointment was that he saw the presidency as a stepping stone to something even bigger in his world, a spot on the really high-up Mormon councils, and now it's going to be a lot harder for him.

109. If he really thought he had it in the bag until the Ohio results, he's even dumber than we thought.

There were plenty of results coming in well before Ohio (PA, MI, MN, WI as significant losses and VA and FL and NC being super close) that were already showing that Mitt and the GOP's model of the electorate was way off, in the wrong direction. This should have given him a clue that IA, NV and CO had a good chance of going against him as well.

As it was, the earlier results from PA and the Midwest were already putting the electoral vote totals to where Mitt would have needed a miracle "inside straight" from the Western states, and picking up VA and FL, to win, so his chances were long at best even before Ohio. Ohio wasn't even the final nail in the coffin, I believe that CO or NV sealed the deal even before Ohio came in although I'm not 100 percent sure about that.

So if it's true that he thought he had it won until Ohio then he's a bigger idiot than previously believed. At minimum he should have realized that a Romney win would be a total skin of the teeth cliffhanger job in the BEST scenario for him.

119. The problem with this country is not the President.

 

The problem with this country is the Republican House and his Party. They still don't get the message of the Election and they are doubling down. They need to get out of the way and let this President implement the Policies he ran on. The Republican House has no mandate through gerrymandered districts. Even the Democratic House won the majority of the vote. And now your Party is trying to rig the National Election because you loss! And to say the national media was on our side is bull. They are the ones keeping you alive. Do you know the meaning of No!

130. We should thank him for his honesty at that fundraiser meeting.

To me the worst part about his "47 percent" speech wasn't that he divided Americans into "makers and takers." It was the utter contempt with which he spoke about every American who doesn't make enough money to owe Federal income taxes.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank Mr. Romney once again for that brief moment of candor. And, of course, many thanks to the person who recorded the video and to James Carter IV and David Corn, who brought it to public attention. Every time Romney reappears, we are reminded what a great service they did for the nation.

A million innocent people dead is the current Republican record, thanks to Dick and W, and Mitt always considers himself exception.

That means Mitt would have had to kill over 10,000 people by now, just to keep pace--that's assuming he could steal a second term, of course.

164. Obviously Romney Doesn't Understand How Government Works

"Does the deals" is a bygone era and that is not all bad. We don't need more bridges to nowhere. Citizens United means that members of Congress listen to the billionaires that fund campaigns rather than party leaders so that makes it a lot harder to "knock heads". Plus, if Romney is this whiz-bang then why was his campaign so dysfunctional. And, no, Ann it was not the liberal media that did your husband in. It was the being out of touch and having the wrong message that did him in. The sour grapes the Romney's show day in and day out shows the American people clearly made the correct choice when they soundly rejected Mitt Romney.

178. Romney considered for Detroit's Emergency Manager

Hi all, sorry if this is a duplicate post. I wanted to post it as a new thread, but I haven't posted enough on DU to have authorization (I guess..) But this is too nuts not to post somewhere!

If someone wants to re-post as thread - feel free!

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/03/04/will-mitt-romney-save-detroit/

By Carol Cain
CBS 62

Mitt Romney: possible savior of the Motor City?

The suggestion isn’t as far fetched as its sounds as Romney, the Republican presidential candidate who was unsuccessful against Barack Obama in November, was born and raised in Detroit (so too his beloved wife, Ann).

...snip...

Few could dispute Romney has the pedigree to help.

The question – would Snyder ask Romney, and would Romney – now living in California with Ann – even consider?

Snyder isn’t say much about what he will do, or if he has someone in mind for the EFM job.

Nearly everyone on Snyder’s team, including State Treasurer Andy Dillon, has said that the EFM is the only path to Detroit’s financialsalvation.

There has been a guessing game playing out as to who the EFM might be — which is where Romney’s name surfaced as some national pundits raised it in recent days for the job.

Romney, son of former Michigan Gov. George Romney, has a career immersed in turnarounds including saving the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, and companies while at Bain Capital.

Romney has shown he isn’t afraid of making tough decisions.

...snip...

It will be a bruising assignment for anyone but one that could gain national acclaim if successful in stemming the tides of red ink and other woes of the Motor City.
