Mitt Romney Is Sad And Rudderless Post-Election

RomneyAloneThere's an early Simpsons episode in which Marge becomes the church's "Listen Lady," leaving pious Reverend Lovejoy with nothing to do but play with his model trains.

To the toy passengers on these trains, the brokenhearted and bored pastor, playing the conductor, says "If the passengers will look to their right, you will see a sad man. That is all..."

After reading this Washington Post piece, "A detached Romney tends wounds in seclusion after failed White House bid," I can't help but imagine failed president candidate Mitt Romney in that Lovejoy role.

An excerpt:

The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.

...

Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who’s having a liver transplant soon: "I’ll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment."

In the end of the aforementioned Simpsons episode, Lovejoy saves Ned Flanders from being mauled by baboons after Marge gives him bad advice. The fallen pastor becomes a hero once again. Will Romney pull off a similar comeback? Is he willing to risk his life fighting off rabid baboons to save a fellow American?

    Look up "White Horse prophecy."

  2. Can not say that I am sad to know that he is glum. Would have been a disaster for our community and America's stading in the world. No amount of hair gel, fake tans or fake simles will ever warm us non one- percenters to this liar.

  3. I never want to hear his name again, except as a warning to future voters. Besides, he's much more like Mr. Burns and not Rev. Lovejoy.

  4. Presidential losers rarely have a second chance---particularly someone with no record in Congress or without any particular agenda (etch a sketch).

    We are all blessed that he is done. Maybe he could do a service to the world by resigning the Mormon church and saying that the foundations of the church are as false as the tooth fairy?

  5. Romney is rich man with powerful connections- he should use both to do some good in the world- perhaps that can be a better legacy than sitting around feeling sorry for himself

  6. HIS BIG QUESTION.........

    DID GOD LET MITT DOWN, OR VICE-VERSA?

    The morholes believe God tells them their destiny is to save the USA -- thousands of them prayed and fasted, trying to tell God what to do (as I view it). Since they learn from an early age not to take the word of outsiders, Mitt and his zealous convert of a wife, could not imagine losing.

    I hope this crushing defeat causes mormons to take a good look, and move into the 21st Century, but I will bet that they do not take it as a defeat of their philosopy and an impetus to change.

  7. He should be busy refiling his tax return to take full advantage of his charitable deduction (which was nothing more than more money to fuel the hate-filled Moron church), and get a few more millions back from the government, after lying about the fact that he would never pay more than he was legally required to.

    My hatred for this man is almost as extreme as my hatred for Paul Ryan, the idiot of the pair that we still have to deal with in office.

    Play with those trains, Mittens. And how about creating some jobs...yeah, right.

  8. I don't understand why someone, like Mitt, who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and a leader in business where everbody does what he tells them would like to be POTUS. The POTUS earns tops 1/2 million $$$ and is constantly critized by about !/2 the population. Has the weight of the world on his shoulders and ages before his time.

  9. Romney had no place in politics. You didn't know what he was or what he stood for. But you knew, because you could look at Republicans in general and see what they stood for, therefore what he stood for. Non Republicans didn't like it, and Republicans didn't like Romney. How could he have been elected?

    From this election, it's becoming apparent that Republicans need to change, or they're doomed. And, much like this fiscal cliff, the only solution I see is the most extreme one. For the fiscal cliff, it's undesirable, but for Republicans, it has to happen. They have to implode.

  10. Better for him to be sad than for me...!!!

  11. Oh, BTW, Paul Ryan was the Kiss of Death.

  13. In other words, I am horribly depressed about not winning the lottery I did not purchase a ticket for last week, because my odds of winning that were about the same as Mitt's of winning the presidency.

    Am I the only weirded out to now realize that Mitt Romney probably thought he was going to win for religious reasons?

  14. Well, while he pouts, I continue to do my happy dance that he lost. Praise the Lord he lost. My prayers were answered by God, not Mitt's prayers. How does that feel, Mittens? God answered a GAY man's prayers over yours! HA! Seriously, you never had a chance...someone else stated it so well...from a cast of utter clowns came Mittens, ill-equipped, but well-funded candidate. He had the eyes, ears and pocketbooks of all the "movers & shakers", but could neither move nor shake them, nor anyone else.

  15. Good riddance to bad rubbish I say. Why oh why do complete idiots get space here? If he was so smart why is he seeking sympathy instead of trying to pay back those to shoveled money at him. As ABFAB Patsy would say: let him die!!

  16. Can anyone please explain why this is news? Why does the media force this sorta stuff down our throats? Andy -- any insight?

  17. Sad and rudderless and wallowing in his $250 MIL at his beach house in San Diego driving his new Audi while Ann has to force herself to stop crying and ride her horses again. What pity!

  18. Thanks Jamal49 for summing up the aftermath (and foremath?) of Romney (his and ours) so perfectly and so eloquently.

    Romney is lost because he didn't stand for anything to begin with, and he can't continue because he was not honestly committed to anything other than his own power and glory. That's why he can't turn an Al Gore, or a Jimmy Carter statesman thing. What we saw initially was the morally empty shell he truly is, and I don't expect it to be filling up with anything positive any time soon. Time to retire and just disappear.

  20. I suspect that most voters were, frankly, scared out of their wits when they realized that the Mormon Church leadership would have been the real "President of the United States". The Mormon Cult is far more dangerous than the Pope when it comes to the day-to-day life of the faithful.

  21. "he wakes up every morning without a plan" ... just exactly how is that any different than it was before the election. Had the man had a plan, any plan, it is quite possible that he might be the President elect instead of the President's lunch guest.

    Romney is the candidate that the party didn't want, didn't like and didn't sufficiently support - because he had no core or principle beliefs beyond. And his pandering and trying to be everything to everybody ultimately made him a loser. it has to be rough to be the man who lost the election that the Republican's believed they just couldn't lose.

  22. I hope some day he faces up to the fact that he, Romney, did NOT win the Republican primaries. AnyoneButObama did. AnyoneButObama also got a karmic 47% in the election. Real people with real palns can pick themselves up after a suitable downtime. Please, Andy & al., cut down your coverage of Romney & company.
