Ok, I'll add some more perspective...

1.) By his own account, shouldn't he have won at least 53% of the vote? I mean, obviously 47% of the American people are on the dole and Obama has given them enough sops that they'll vote for him no matter what. That's a given...

But so, what happened to the rest of the actual Americans? Did they just stay home on election day? Surely everyone understood that the margin was only 3%, right?

What did he lose by again?

2.) I guess he's going for the moral victory thing? Or is it that he still just doesn't get it? Maybe he should read the "How to Win Elections" playbook again.  I think they just released the revised edition and after each rule in it it now says, "Like Obama did in 2012."

3.) Did we learn anything from this experience Mitt/GOP? Because it doesn't feel like it.  All this talk about re-tooling and/or rebranding the GOP for 2014 and 2016...if you don't view young voters, women, hispanics and "other core supporters" of Obama as voters worth attracting, let alone have compassion for them as fellow Americans worthy of your presidential leadership, guidance and, yes, PROTECTION...well, good luck with...uh...your piles of money...and...your top hat and monocle collecting...and...um...retirement?...or...what is it you do again?

4.) What does it say about you when one of the first people to denounce what you said is Scott Walker?  And you're the Republican presidential nominee? Scott Freakin' Walker, for pete's sake!

5.) I take it you've already ruled out 2016?

One of the many things that money most definitely cannot buy is empathy. It's good to know that being financially rich is simply not enough to obtain the presidency.  You have to have had enough life lessons and experiences that have fostered a sense of empathy for your fellow man as well.

Wow...I think just I put a hash in Bush's + column on that one.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    and funny in a bizarro world way. Scott Walker called him out? Mitt needs to be put away, he has nothing useful to say.

    "The living being had no need of eyes because there was nothing outside of him to be seen; nor of ears because there was nothing to be heard; and there was no surrounding atmosphere to be breathed; nor would there have been any use of organs by the help of which he might receive his food or get rid of what he had already digested, since there was nothing which went from him or came into him: for there was nothing beside him. Of design he created thus; his own waste providing his own food, and all that he did or suffered taking place in and by himself. For the Creator conceived that a being which was self-sufficient would be far more excellent than one which lacked anything; and, as he had no need to take anything or defend himself against any one, the Creator did not think it necessary to bestow upon him hands: nor had he any need of feet, nor of the whole apparatus of walking; but the movement suited to his spherical form which was designed by him, being of all the seven that which is most appropriate to mind and intelligence; and he was made to move in the same manner and on the same spot, within his own limits revolving in a circle. All the other six motions were taken away from him, and he was made not to partake of their deviations. And as this circular movement required no feet, the universe was created without legs and without feet."

    Despite all the efforts to buy the election and suppress the vote he still lost. For someone who thinks money is the base indicator of personal worth that is a shocker... For someone to whom lying is not a sin it is shocking. Bullies are always shocked when victims stand up to them. EFF OFF Whiney Willie

  •  I love this quote: (0+ / 0-)
    we didn’t build a campaign on promising things to groups of people.
    Well you did promise to treat gays as 2nd-class citizens and to treat women, minorities and the poor and middle class like crap.    I'm just astonished they didn't vote for you because I'm quite certain you intended to keep those campaign promises.
    •  He's a numbers guy... (0+ / 0-)

      ..so, I'm just going to assume he didn't make a mistake and instead he just opted for keeping the moral high ground. Because when I type 1% into my calculator it doesn't automatically prefix it with a five.

      ...so, I'm going to assume he didn't make a mistake and instead he just chose to hold the moral high ground.  Because when I type 1% into my calculator it definitely does not automatically prefix the one with a five.
