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.

Hmm. No wonder the White House won’t build a Death Star for us.
At a press conference today, Barack Obama proved that while he may be our coolest-ever President, even he needs to bone up on his pop cultural references.
Speaking to the press about sequestration and forging a bipartisan budget reform agreement, Obama said he can’t perform a “Jedi mind meld” on Congress.
Maybe because there is no such thing as a Jedi mind meld.Obama Jedi Mind Meld

Robert Bork, whose long political career was most noteworthy for his controversial rejection from the Supreme Court in the 1980s, has died at the age of 85.
Son Robert H. Bork Jr. confirmed his father died at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Va. The son said Bork died from complications of heart ailments.
The brilliant, blunt Bork’s confirmation hearings helped draw the modern boundaries of cultural fights over abortion, civil rights and other issues.
Earlier in life, Bork was accused of being a partisan hatchet man for Richard Nixon.

There’s jet lag, and there’s jet lag after visiting more than 100 countries in four years, at which point no coffee, Red Bull or Five Hour Energy is gonna get it done.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton looked like she hit a wall right in the middle of President Obama’s speech in Myanmar on Monday, falling asleep briefly. Watch:Clinton Falls Asleep in Myanmar
While Hillary, who sat next to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, likely wishes she hadn’t nodded off, she shouldn’t worry all that much considering:

Listen up, white voters of America. Chris Rock is sending you a message.
Are you looking for a Presidential candidate that shares your values, hobbies and… well… skin color? If so, the name on your ballot this Tuesday should be obvious: Barack Obama!
The man was known as Barry for much of his life (“the third whitest name on Earth!”); he bowls; he dances with Ellen; he wears mom jeans.
And, unlike Mitt Romney, his family doesn’t have more members in it than a Tyler Perry movie. Watch this hilarious endorsement now:Chris Rock: Vote for “White” Barack Obama!

Yup. It turns out Donald Trump actually can get worse.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy slamming New York City, the real estate mogul has taken to Twitter. To wish his fellow Big Apple residents well? Of course not.

“Because of the hurricane, I am extending my 5 million dollar offer for President Obama’s favorite charity until 12PM on Thursday,” Trump wrote today.

For all his ridiculous muster, Donald Trump didn’t actually break any news with his supposed Barack Obama bombshell today.
But Gloria Allred may have uncovered something sordid about Mitt Romney, and it’s all based on a testimony the candidate many years ago involving Staples founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife, Maureen.
According to TMZ sources, Maureen alleges that Romney lied under oath when he told a judge Staples was worth noting, labeling the company’s stock as “overvalued” and concluding that he doesn’t place a “great deal of credibility in the forecast of theMore >
Madonna certainly keeps things lively. At her concert in D.C. this week, she discussed how amazing it is that we have a “black Muslim in the White House” who’s for gay rights.
This is a supporter of the President who rocks an Obama tattoo.Madonna Calls Obama a Muslim
It’s possible, even likely, that Madonna was mocking those who actually think Barack Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya. Then again, birthers aren’t known to appreciate irony.
Better (or worse) yet? Madonna promised to get nude if Obama wins in November! Somewhere, Mitt Romney is getting ready to send out aMore >
The economy. The war in Afghanistan. Nicki Minaj.
Barack Obama tackled all the important issues this morning during a radio interview with Orlando radio station Power 95.3.
Asked about Minaj’s supposed endorsement of Mitt Romney – she rapped in a verse from “Mercy” that “I’m a Republican” – Obama sounded rather confident that his Presidential opponent doesn’t actually have the vote of this rumored American Idol judge.
“I’m not sure that’s exactly what happened,” Obama says in the following video. “She likes to play different characters.”
And it turnsMore >
No one does it quite like Bill Clinton.
The 42nd U.S. President offered a rousing endorsement of Barack Obama’s record last night at the Democratic National Convention, holding the audience captive for over 48 minutes and proving that even a quadruple bypass can’t slow him down.
Whether you agree with Clinton’s political views or not, his DNC speech was folksy, detailed and compelling, offering a more cogent defense of Obama’s tenure in the White House than its current occupant himself has ever given.
Obama, Clinton said, cannot beMore >
