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."

    The REAL American voters saw this phoney money grabbing Romney way back berfore election day . I am sure that his loyal staff was thrilled after he conceded and put a stop on all his staff and members CREDIT CARDS. What a way to show America how right they were to reject this Money grubbing Romney . How stupid can he get ,He has his money in foriegn countries and banks and then has the GALL to try and be elected as the leader of this country.If every body paid attention to his attempt to get elected it was easy to see how phoney he really was/is.

    “The marketing and organizational failures of Romney's campaign are evidence that all of this talk about Romney being qualified to be President because he was a good businessman was, in fact, without merit. The first test of whether you can be a good president is whether you can put a winning campaign organization together. Romney failed the test.”

    "Keep believing in America," Romney wrote", and I'll believe in the Caymans.

    Mitt Romney did not end his letter with "Thank you." as the author of the article mistakenly wrote; importantly, he ended the letter with "Thank you and God bless America."

    Good try Mitt. In my opinion, your own words were very effectively used against you. The 47% comment was a kiss of death. I guess we can thank Jimmy Carter's grandson for that one.

    This Romney sounds much better than the one who ran for president!

    A good and decent man who should have been president.

    Romney thanked his campaign staff by cutting off their credit cards immediately after his concession speech and leaving them stranded in Boston.

    Gee, his staffers should have no problem filling some of the vacancies created by Romney donors/supporters who laid off their Democratic voting workers this week.

    Republicans lost not because their policies are bad, overly "democrat progressive" policies and social programs have triggered prolong economic depression and inverse racial discrimination as well as inverse gender discrimination. Romney is a poor candidate. Republican party decide not to put their best man, Ron Paul, on the stage. That is their failure, and we will bear a depression along with the social unrest from feminazism and zionism as well.

    By the way, did he thank all his supporters or just 53% of them.

    I think his arrogance played a little as well. When the satisfaction of/for the cause becomes the concession the ego
    shines in the dark.

    We love you, Mitt! To quote the maitre d from Ferris, "I weep for the future..."

    Well, finding 400 jobs should be easy, since he was going to create 250k jobs a month. Let me know how that all works out for you.

    November 10, 2012 08:36 pm at 8:36 pm |

    Hit the road mitt don't you come back no more no more no more. By the way take your sons with you.

    Not to worry Mittens. Now that you lost, we will definitely "keep believing in America," under President Obama.

    Yeah, he 'thanked' his supporters after leaving them stranded in the middle of the night without means to pay for their way home. I guess that's his version of 'fiscal conservatism'. What a guy, what a guy.

    Let's see just what a "jobs" president Romney would have been when he finds jobs for his 400 campaign workers. My bet is that he'll just retreat back to his mansions, play with his grand kids and count his money. Perhaps he and Karl Rove can give them the remaining funds that the rich donors gave to his campaign when they were still convinced by Fox News and Rush that he was going to win.

    He should definitely help the people he know get jobs. Or make jobs for them. It's all about the people you know and no one else. That's what Romney is about and what he will always be about. Obama is a failure.

  24. Wow --And how very, very sad!

    Romney is the LAST of the GREAT self-made Americans who actually WORKED HARD to achieve. And THAT is what made America great. Too bad it's all over now with Obama, the silly little community organizer. But you got what you voted for – good luck!

    DhoWEVER But go ahead - REJOICE!

    Mitt Romney had no cause, no message, no agenda and no plan. Mitt Romney was a weak, laughable candidate and that was evidently clear on Election Night.
