Mitt Romney smirks after attacking President Obama over the Libya attacks
Totally not bitter
Okay, the interview with Mitt and Ann Romney, airing this weekend on Fox News Sunday, is promising to be the best Republican tragicomedy since Marco Rubio's Gulp Heard 'Round the World. Or that time Clint Eastwood lost a debate to an empty chair. Or ... well, take your pick.

Here's another fun sneak peak of Mitt's big comeback:

Romney criticized Obama for being caught off guard by the sequestration deadline and for "berating" Republicans during the budget debate.

"Well, no one can think that's been a success for the President. He didn't think the sequester would happen. It is happening," Romney said. "But to date, what we've seen is the President out campaigning to the American people, doing rallies around the country, flying around the country, and berating Republicans. And blaming and pointing. Now what does that do? That causes the Republicans to retrench and then put up a wall and fight back. It's a very natural human emotion."

Erm, uh, okay. The Republicans are again playing chicken with the president—and, oh yeah, the whole country—because Obama goes to rallies and says mean things about Republicans. Oh, the horror! It's not that Republicans want to see programs like, say, Meals on Wheels, get cut—it's just that mean ol' Obama has hurt their delicate little feelings, and deciding to screw over the whole country is simply a "natural human emotion." And if there's anyone who understands natural human emotions, it's definitely the guy who tried to connect with voters by insulting their local baked goods and telling "humorous" stories about that time his dad fired a bunch of people.

Oh, and going on TV to whine about how mean the guy who just kicked your ass in an election is doesn't make you look like a sore loser at all. Just ask John "still licking his wounds from four years ago" McCain.

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.
