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.
Admitting that it “kills” him not to be President, Romney also had a fewMore >
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 >
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 >
Since the days of George H.W. Bush, Presidents have spared the lives of a couple fortunate turkeys every year around Thanksgiving.
This year, for example, President Obama will pardon two birds named Cobbler and Gobbler.The West Wing – Bartlet Pardons Turkey
But PETA is actually against this act, as chairman Ingrid Newkirk addressed the Leader of the Free World today and said:
“It makes light of the mass slaughter of some 46 million gentle, intelligent birds and portrays the United States’ president as being in some sort of business partnership with the turkey-killingMore >
Julianne Moore won an Emmy for portraying Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change.
That did not sit well with the former V.P. candidate’s daughter Bristol Palin. Why?
“I don’t think she’s a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that,” she said. “I think she doesn’t have that accent. It’s kind of silly, but my mom’s awesome.”
Sure she is. Do you agree with Bristol (who’s been receiving white powder and death threats in the mail) that Sarah’s hotter than Julianne? Tell us below, who’d you rather …
I mean, really: who in this country doesn’t love Snooki? The celebrity mama-to-be posed for this picture with Newt Gingrich and his wife Cally behind the scenes at a taping of the Jay Leno show on Wednesday afternoon.
Is it just me, or does it look like both Snooki and Cally dressed almost the same for the show? See, I always said that Snooks had good taste! She’s an excellent ambassador for the Garden State. And considering the fact that she’s traveling, I’m taking it that she has another two months or so before she gives birth to her first baby. We can’t wait to finally meet him and seeMore >
Ron Paul supporters took control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting him to the GOP national convention.
The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory.
In votes leading to the close of the two-day Maine GOP convention, Paul supporters were elected to 21 of 24 delegate spots from the state to the Republican national convention in Tampa, Fla., giving him a demonstrative win in the state.
Paul, the last challenger to Mitt Romney to remain in the contest, finished a close second behind Romney in Maine’s GOP caucuses in February.
John Edwards denied his affair with Rielle Hunter to the American public but would not do so in a sworn affidavit, while his mistress wanted to claim she was abducted by aliens, according to the latest dispatches from his trial.
Mark Kornblau, who worked as John Edwards’ spokesman and issued a strong denial that succeeded in keeping the Enquirer‘s story about Edwards’ pregnant girlfriend from being picked up by the mainstream media, testified this week.
Kornblau said the story “would be a terrible outcome for Mrs. Edwards. I believed it to be untrue. Thirdly, it would be damaging to theMore >
