    I will concede that he did a rather eloquent and gracious concession speech. I was impressed.

    Good luck Mitt in you future endeavors.

    He's got a wife, a large family and $250million in the bank. I think he'll be okay.

    yourname2000 saidIt was good.

    I wonder how he'll be pilloried by the GOP over the next few days. Fox should be interesting, lol.

    I almost feel sorry for Anne Romney. I don't use the c word too often, but I'm glad that c won't be First Lady (almost as much as I'm glad Romney won't be POTUS), but I imagine her to be more crushed than Mitt will be. As much as I'd like to revel in her misery, I can't. Damn conscience. icon_mad.gif
    I was NOT impressed with her body language as she came out at the end.. I have never had any respect for that woman.. she sealed the deal tonight on stage for me.

    It was too long.
    And, I wanted to see him and his entire family, sobbing.

    I don't say this just because he was the opponent of my candidate of choice, but because he was such a slimy, flip flopping liar, throughout the entire campaign. He was an ass.

    Good speech. And the Romney stage looks better than the Obama stage. :-)

    Agree. Don't let five minutes of integrity erase years of vitriol.

    It was a good concession speech. I'm sure the rest of the republican party are pissed.

    The concession speech was short, on point, and genuine. Romney appeared human. There's no denying, however, that the Republican leadership fatally underestimated the intelligence and integrity of the American voters, and it paid for it. If there's any lesson to be learned from this election, it is that the American voters can see through lies, misrepresentations, and duplicity. I'm glad the election is over and we can start moving forward as a nation.

    I enjoyed waiting for Mitt to concede. I'm so glad that there was an odd delay before the speech. It meant to me that there was tremendous disappointment, sadness, anger, and a desperate search for any last votes in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. Votes which weren't there. I can only imagine the moment when either Romney admitted defeat, or more likely somebody like Ann said to Mitt..."It's over". I would have loved to have been there in that quiet moment of surrender. I can only imagine the tears. And, after all the anger and tears that the Romney/Ryan ticket has caused...they reaped what they sowed.

    Like Mitt, his concession speech came across scripted, forced, and superficially gracious. Based on his past pattern of lies and saying whatever anybody wanted to hear, his speech came across as just another empty, hollow, vapid flapping of lips. I'm sure even Satan will recant when being thrown into the lake of fire.

    Mitt, on his last appearance on the national stage, missed an opportunity to underscore the issues of any "movement" in his party.

    More importantly, missed an opportunity to rally his party behind the President and unite Americans.

    Ann Romney looked so pained on stage. Her prideful and crowing appearances on so many public occasions were fittingly humbled by her final appearance on the national stage.

    I feel no sorrow for either Mitt, Ann, nor any of their sons. They were cold and calculating in their campaign, throwing anybody and any issue under the bus in their unquenchable quest for power and control. I relished their crowning moment of humiliation on the national stage last night.

    I look forward to ANOTHER FOUR MOAR YEARS!

    I'm sure I absolutely understand how the Republicans and the ConservaPosse® feel this morning. It must be how many of us felt when George Bush won his second term. Feelings of dejection, despair, discouragement, and trepidation on what may lay ahead ANOTHER FOUR MOAR YEARS!

    Good. Experience deeply the feeling for ANOTHER FOUR MOAR YEARS!

    I have no sympathy for any of you.

    Sore winner? Absofuckinglutely! This schadenfreude is such a deliciously wicked pleasure which I, and others, have been waiting for since 2000.

    Bwahahahahahahahaha!

    Good bye, Mitt (you piece of shit)!

    Haha - wow - bitter even in victory. As in all things, be careful what you wish for. These next four years will be interesting to say the least.

    I'm disappointed. As generally expected - it was a tight race and it's a lost opportunity. Conservatives will be fine - and while I think there are some who are genuinely quite upset, I think they're mostly disappointed compared to the levels of Bush derangement syndrome experienced by those like yourself. I think there are some positive signs though - I think this election was a big blow for social conservatism - I just hope the Republican party recognizes that.

    Healthcare costs will rise significantly higher than anticipated, job growth will continue to be sluggish and if taxes rise for capital and high income individuals, expect tax revenues to come in substantially less than anticipated. Investors will reallocate resources. And then if Obama acts to type attempting to govern as if he has a mandate, there will be 2014. icon_wink.gif

    I think they'll be more gracious than you guys were after 2010 and after Bush won. And certainly more gracious than a number of you have been in your victory icon_wink.gif
