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.

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.
