Mitt Romney: “It Kills Me Not to Be in the White House”

Multi-millionaire didn’t get what he was entitled to, whines
Politics • Views: 27,472

See, the thing is, Mitt Romney was supposed to win the presidency. He was entitled to win. And he would have, too, if only he hadn’t been up against a guy who gives away free stuff to those troublesome minorities.

Mitt Romney stood by his belief that President Obama was aided in his re-election by giving gifts to minority voters, during an interview that aired on “Fox News Sunday.”

“The president had the power of incumbency, ‘Obamacare’ was very attractive, particularly to those without insurance, and they came out in large numbers to vote,” Romney said. “So that was part of a successful campaign.”

How can you fight against that? Can you blame Mitt for being a little bitter about the whole thing? Mitt Romney: ‘It Kills Me’ Not to Be President.

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.

“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.”

Romney, as have congressional Republicans, accused Obama of “campaigning” rather than governing as the sequester loomed. That, Romney said, has been counterproductive.

“Well, no one can think that that’s been a success for the president,” Romney said. “He didn’t think the sequester would happen. It is happening. To date, what we’ve seen is a — the president out campaigning to the American people, doing rallies around the country, flying around the country and berating Republicans and blaming and pointing. Now, what does that do? That causes the Republicans to — to retrench and to put up a wall and to fight back. It’s a very natural human emotion.”

Ann Romney said her husband, had he won, would have solved the sequester by now.

“I totally believe at this moment, if Mitt were there in the office, that we would not be facing sequestration right now,” she said.

OK, all sarcasm aside — can you believe these spoiled whiny multi-millionaires? They lost the election because the American people saw through the pandering to the true Mitt Romney: the rich elitist snob who held them in contempt, and would blatantly lie in his quest for power. With every ungracious word out of their mouths, the Romneys just confirm that this impression was dead on.
