    Mitt Romney apparently got a dose of Bill Clinton's smooth-talking ways after the presidential election.

    The Republican nominee recounted for donors on Wednesday the phone call he got from the ex-president after being defeated by President Obama.

    According to ABC News, Romney said he chatted with Clinton for about 30 minutes and -- among other things -- the Democrat said he thought President Obama's rival could have won the White House until Hurricane Sandy hit. ABC News obtained audio of the phone call.

    "He said a week out I thought you were going to win," Romney is quoted as saying. "And he said, but the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan."

    Then, Romney said, Clinton "got a little more momentum" during their call and said that while he was watching Ann Romney speak at the Republican convention "he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party."

    "So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted," Romney said about Clinton, whose gift of gab is in a league of its own.

    This is another example of how Republicans have bad comprehension skills. This is patronizing, plain and simple.

    So very likely! Just as believable as Mitt's fantasy which conveniently absolves himself of any responsibility for his devastating and humiliating loss.

    It's actually sad to see Mitt desperately trying to find someone -- anyone -- else to blame for his massive failure. Yesterday it was college aged women who wanted "free birth control," today it's the weather! But remember folks, Mitt is totally blameless!

    BTW, the Republicans' complete inability to face the truth -- America doesn't like your policies, and doesn't like your scary, nutty candidates -- means the GOP will keep losing elections for years to come.
    But in the meantime, Republicans, keep up your attacks on women, Latinos, gay people, and African Americans. The country is watching, and we will remember.

    Yeah, blaming Latinos, women, and young people is a rather stupid strategy considering that going forward, those are the votes Republicans need in future elections if they want to win.

    Speaking of bad comprehension: that wasn't patronizing; that was pantronizing. He said he wants to get in Ann's pants.

    Romney is an ass.
    He lost, and the responsibility for that loss lies squarely on his own shoulders, regardless of what anyone's opinion may be.
