Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
On recent television appearances Mitt Romney has been questioning the character of President Obama over his promises regarding the ACA. This is quite rich considering that Romney’s entire campaign put forward one lie after another.
The man simply has no shame. And his comments evidences that he continues to be extremely bitter after his loss. He, his wife, and his minions truly expected to win. Moreover, Romney felt entitled to win. As his wife said during the campaign, “It’s our turn.” Well…whoops…I guess it wasn’t.
His recent comments are not just the ugly slurs of a sore loser, though they are that. I think that Romney wants to run for President again. It seems he believes that his loss was an aberration, miscalculations on the part of his campaign (not his, because he’s never wrong) and the advantages of Obama’s incumbency. He feels that he was mischaracterized as a heartless and greedy plutocrat. The fact that it’s demonstrably true is something he refuses to see. 47% anyone?
Romney wants to be on the frontline of the attack during this period where Obama seems vulnerable. Further, there is no heir apparent for the Republican nomination, and Romney knows this. He is in apparent good health, and would be no older than Ronald Reagan when he won the presidency. If there is a void of strong contenders come the end of 2015, and if he sees an opening, I believe that Romney will jump into the race. After all, he’s entitled.
