Mitt Romney sends note of thanks to supporters

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney sent a note Saturday to his campaign backers saying he and his wife "cannot thank you enough for supporting and believing in our cause."

"This was more than just a campaign - this was a national movement," he said. "Thank you for the work that you did - going across neighborhoods to knock on doors and put up yard signs. Thanks for making phone calls, coming to rallies, donating funds, and convincing friends and family to join our team."

He did not specifically address his loss or President Barack Obama in the message.

"We still believe that better days are ahead. It's up to us to rally together to renew America's promise and restore American greatness," the message said.

The message did not address Romney's future plans. He has told supporters that one immediate emphasis is to help find jobs for the 400 campaign staffers.

"From the bottom of our hearts, Ann and I thank you for your support, prayers, efforts, and vote. We are forever grateful to each and every one of you. Today's a new day. Keep believing in America," Romney wrote before ending it saying, "Thank You."

    Sorry to say but you was bad choice, Now we have Obama with no plans, you wanted US to go to another war, people are awake do not care that much or believe in lies about Israel. people are equal so are Israelis. We can not effort another war.

    I thank Mitt Romney from the bottom of my heart. He was not my man. I hoped he would not win. And I am very glad he did not win. But nobody can say that Mitt Romney did not offer us a choice. And without a choice our right to vote is meaningless. So thank you Mitt for running for President and giving it a very serious and credible try. However, maybe you should switch parties. You really make a better moderate than you do a right wing nut job. Whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best of luck.

    Actions speak louder than words. Alexithymic Mitt is SO CHEAP that he cancelled his supporters' credit cards BEFORE they could take a taxi cab home on Tuesday night when it was annouced that he lost.

    You are welcome Mr. Romney. I would take the time now to enjoy yourself and your family. Let Mr. Obama have his way and utilitze his smarts. LOL Obviously, our country is ready to take a nose dive and that's ok. That's what the people want. Enjoy life and it was great meeting you.

    Sweet – did he manage to pay his campaign staffs' final hotel bills and cab fares after their credit cards were immediately cancelled?

    He should be apologizing to them (LOL), but the GOP had no other viable candidates – over the past 8 years! That said, another Democratic landslide.

    "This was more than just a campaign – this was a national movement," he said.

    Yeah, No. It was just a campaign, from another multi-millionaire, investment banker.

    I want to thank Mitt for running. I know he, along with Ann, fought a hard battle for a good cause and I, for one, am sorry to see that he lost. When he first arrived on the candidate scene, I didn't care for him. But as I got to know him, I feel America missed its chance by not electing him.

    What a selfish -–Romney is. After his acceptance speech he cut off his campaign staff's credit cards. Let them find their own jobs like the rest of us do. They are damaged goods and could not give a bottle of water to a person dying of thirst.
    By the way President Obama supporters were thanked by email after it was announced he was re-elected.

    Today is really a good day for Americans that Carl Rowes, Fox news and the Kohl brothers will never decide our elections. I wish Romney good luck paying more than 14% tax like the rest us. The 47% have spoken.
    Hope Romney can really use his time now to appreciate the 47% of americans that suffer under the 1%.
    Good luck. Thank you for creating job for President Obama for 4 more years

    Real "gracious" guy, Governor Romney. Putting aside "policies", the primary differences between POTUS and Governor Romney are POTUS really "cares" and better prepared (excluding 1st debate). POTUS even prepared for a concession speech. Governor too arrogant to prepare.

    America's loss. Why would anyone vote Obama who has such a dismal record? All he knows is tax the rich and hire more teachers. What a joke.

    A genuine statesman and patriot would also add that he wished the President the best and that he would do everything within his power to get Republicans and Democrats to work together for the good of the country. Romney wanted the Presidency because he wanted another feather in his personal ego-cap. Sad state of affairs. Will the Republicans wake up or keep sleeping and losing elections? It would be better for the country if they would wake up and join the reality-based conversations.

    There goes the best person for President. I don't understand what happened with the Obama last 4 years that people would re-elect Obama. Something is crooked here.

    Obama should ask Romney to create 12 million jobs to prove Romney stands behind his words.
