    Got to wonder who is taking the Mitt Romney loss harder, his supporters or CNN journalists? This nonstop Romney coverage is getting amusing. Oh, well. Keeping the GOPer clown car tuned and in continual motion is fine by me.

    And President Obama invites one of these 2 loosers as you call them to the White House to perhaps discuss a position for Romney in the Obama administration.

    Answer: How they really didn't mean what they said personally that it was just politics.

    Dream on myviewis. This absolutely will not happen because most of the president's base STILL remember how he referred to us and we won't forget it. The only way Willard could ever get a position in the president's cabinet is to beg for it and he's just that low to do just that.

    "And President Obama invites one of these 2 loosers as you call them to the White House to perhaps discuss a position for Romney in the Obama administration"

    Based on the following, it's doubtful Obama is offering Romney anything more than a free lunch.

    "Mitt Romney will join Solamere Capital, the investment firm co-founded by son Tagg ... to move into an office at the Boston-area venture capital firm Solamere Capital."

  14. Facts don't Lie

    the invitation to the White House by the president is a common deal after an election to try to bury what hard feelings may have been had and move forward. Obama did the same in 2009 with Sen McCain. We need to realize that despite we may be of different parties and sometimes ahve different views we all are Americans and should be able to somehow work in unison to more our country forward. All this petty right vs left stuff needs to be put aside once in awhile.

    At this point, Romney is a non-factor. Depending on his dejeuner with Le President.

    But inquiring minds are already wondering if the GOP will wake up and/or smell said coffee or inversely begin to groom Ryan to run as their Conservative candidate in 2016.

    Ryan/(Santorum, Bachmann, Akin, etc....) in 2016(?)

    Side note – Did very much enjoy Matalin's 'Middle School Mean Girl' breakdown versus Jones.....feel bad for the Ragin' Cajun, though. He'll be ducking copper all-clads for the next four years.

    Hey Romney, You told us that the president should start packing before the election. What about now. We told you not to pack

    Because Romney insulted many Obama's supporters, by saying that their votes were bought, he won't be getting a job in the Obama Administration. Anyway, Romney does not need a job. He and his children and grandchildren are set for life. He does not need to worry about his future. However, the Republican Party does need to worry about its future. Too many Republicans believe that Obama bought the election. This is an insult to Obama's supporters. When you are in the minority, the last thing that you should do is to insult the majority. You need to convince some people in the majority to switch to your side, and insulting them won't help.

    Spot on, Anthony.
    I'd like to further your point by adding that Romney also insulted many of his own supporters. Not every single Romney voter is a multi-millionaire, suffering at the hands of us lowly Democratic '47% takers'.

  19. Wake up People!

    @Lynda/Minnesota. I almost feel like you channeled my brain with your last post. I was thinking the same thing. Poor CNN writers just can't get over the fact that their wittle Mittens LOST. I always enjoy reading your comments.

    Romney did not "insult many Obama supporters". He insulted everyone, and then came back for seconds by insulting everyone's intelligence again and again.

    "I saved Detroit.", said in ad.
    "I'm not lowering taxes on wealthiest Americans.", said during presidential debates.
    "I created over 100,000 jobs while AT Bain," said during VP debates in 2011.
