Principles? Since when is prevarication a principle?

The pendulum has swung so far left, Mitt's principles and those of conservative America may never return to power. Reagan's city on the hill, is no more..

Mitt, your wife stated unequivocally that if you lost this election, that would be the end of your political career.

Please, oh please, do NOT flip-flop on that!

Principles? What principles? Romney's only "principle" is to do or say whatever it takes to get what he wants at a given moment, and will say or do the exact opposite if that better suits his purposes later. He wouldn't recognize an honest principle if it reached up and bit him on the nose.

I hope he keeps his word about one thing -- that he will not again run for public office. The country is better off with him as a private citizen.

JustGordon,

You're right, and very wise! Glad our country voted in a man with principles.

@ JustGordon. People hear what THEY want to hear and regard everything else as prevarication. All people see the world as they are, not as it really is!

Maybe if Mitt had clearly stated what his priciples are and did not change his position on them again and agian during the campaign he'd have a new job today, just maybe.

@Igualmente You are so right. We are a country of two groups Those who work for a living and those that vote for a living. I am fearful that last night was the night America died.

That, of course, is why anyone would believe a single word Mitt says. His record certainly doesn't provide a basis for people to believe him. Flip. Flop. Lie. Flip. Flop. Lie.

I do not necessarily disagree with you but I have to wonder if you can apply that logic to your own views?

This is a turning point for our country. I am sad and very very disappointed that Mitt Romney will not be our president. What a great man. A truly great man. I just want to express my appreciation for Mitt and his family and the honorable way they conducted their campaign and especially their lives. Now I hope this sweet family will enjoy wonderful lives and know that millions upon millions of Americans were truly honored to vote for you. Thank you Mitt and Ann.

ATwin: I echo your comments loud and clear. I also am stunned and very disappointed that Mitt Romney will not be our president. Time will tell that America lost a great opportunity to bring our country back from economic collapse. He and we gave our all to have this good honorable man be our country's leader.

It's unbelievable that people would elect someone as BHO on such a failed record. Likability? Come on! Mitt may not be a "rock star", however he is a very likable man and ran a honorable campaign. We love him and his family. What a great example they are to all of us of a great family who loved and supported one another in a very trying campaign.

We pray for our country. We need God's help through very difficult days ahead.
