In his first extensive interview since losing the Presidential election to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney told Chris Matthews this morning that he only has himself to blame for not taking the White House.
“I lost my election because of my campaign,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday. “Not because of what anyone else did.”Mitt Romney on Fox News Sunday
Romney cited his failure to win over African-American and Hispanic voters, while also zeroing in on his “47 percent” comments as being detrimental to his bid.

But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rights’s “Friend of the Court” brief this week.
In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization’s document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.

A federal appeals court ruled that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution by appointing three members of the National Labor Relations Board.
He bypassed the Senate to install appointees during a Congressional recess, hardly unprecedented but still unconstitutional, according to the ruling.
The decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit is a win for Congressional Republicans and business groups critical of the labor board.
If it stands, the far-reaching decision could invalidate hundreds of board decisions over the past year, including some making itMore >
It’s official: we have four more years of Barack Obama as Commander-in-Chief.
The President was sworn in for the second time today, as Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the oath of office in the White House Blue Room a little before noon.
It will take place again in public tomorrow on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
Following the mishap in 2009, when Roberts misplaced the word “faithfully,” the judge read the oath this time around from a piece of paper.
And all went smoothly, at least according to Sasha Obama, who reportedly turned to her father soon after his promise toMore >
Mitt Romney’s final vote total in the 2012 presidential election has been tallied, and the Republican challenger received – wait for it – 47 percent of the vote.
Yes, it took this entire time to finalize it (you just didn’t hear about it because it wasn’t close), and Romney came in almost exactly at the 47 percent figure.
47.2 percent to be exact.
Many will find the number appropriate and ironic, as Romney made waves when a secret video of him talking with donors surfaced late in the campaign season.
In the 47 percent video, he said that segment of the country would never voteMore >

President Barack Obama squared off with an unexpected adversary this week.
A White House photo released for Time magazine – which named Obama Person of the Year 2012 this week – shows the president goofing around with the son of a staff member.
This little Spider-Man gave him all he could handle on October 26:
Fortunately for Obama, he was able to escape the superhero’s wrath, and went on to defeat Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election just two weeks later.

Still reeling from the 2012 presidential election, C. Montgomery Burns of The Simpsons fame took a few minutes to explain the upcoming Fiscal Cliff this week.
You have to give the tycoon credit for moving on in the wake of Mitt Romney’s defeat to bring America up to date on January 1′s impending financial calamity.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t exactly go as planned either, according to Smithers and his Insta-polls …Fiscal Cliff: The Simpsons

Ok, so this is probably not the way he envisioned himself going to the White House, but hey, a man can dream, right? Former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was spotted on his way to what could have been his future residence to have a private lunch with President Obama in Washington, D.C. on Thursday afternoon.
Whether you love the guy or hate the guy, or support him or not, it’s hard not to admit that he’s a pretty good looking guy for his age, right? I sure would like to know what his nightly skincare routine is, LOL!Visit the Gallery (6 Images)

Mitt Romney can still enjoy a nice silver lining following his loss in the 2012 presidential election, brags adviser Stuart Stevens, who feels the Republican won where it counts.
Seriously, this isn’t an Onion article … these are real quotes.
Stevens penned an op-ed in the Washington Post today arguing that by winning wealthier and whiter voters, Romney secured a huge moral victory over Obama.
“On November 6, Mitt Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income,” Stevens wrote.
“He carried the majority ofMore >
