Who cares? He got his butt whipped in the last election and he is old news now.

Who cares about Romney?

I do.

So do millions of others.

He didn't get his "butt whipped". He got cheated out of winning.

Cheated by the liberal mainstream media who was in Obama's pocket from the very beginning.

Cheated by the liberal mainstream media who absolutely REFUSED to portray Romney accurately. (The 'dreaded' "47%" comment? Phhhht! Puh-leeeease....)

Cheated by guy in the White House who essentially bribed the lazy and perpetually uninformed among us to vote for him. Want an Obamaphone, anyone?

Would Romney have been a perfect President.

Absolutely not.

However, Romney on his WORST day would be light years ahead of Obama on even his best day.

Oh, America, I weep for you....

Mitt's NEVER old news - to DN, anyway.

Obama supporters and apologists will warmly remember that glorious eve of the election when their beloved Obama beat Romney.

Since then it has been all downhill for Obama. Nothing to celebrate, nothing to be proud of.

It would be interesting if the election were to be a do-over. In my opinion Romney would win in a landslide.

But wishes won't get us Romney. We are stuck where we are until the next campaign.

The man is some kind of gluten for punishment.


Mitt would have been a wonderful President. He loves this country and wants what is best for it. It is to bad that the mainstream media took sides with Obama. Now we are in so much trouble it is becoming very frightening. It is to bad that our first Black President has turned out to just want what he wants and does not care about this Country. I would much rather see Jimmy Carter in there right now than Obama and that is not saying much. Oh how I wished that Mitt would run again for office. Our Country could really use him right now.

Guy with brain, are you kidding me? What fiction you write.

I will say this :the DesNews is obsessed with the man.

TO: A Guy With a Brain...your attitude and belief is very refreshing...I totally agree with you.

The difference between Mitt Romney and Obama can be summed up easily. Romney wanted to be elected to serve this once great nation. Obama wanted to be elected to rule and "fundamentally change" this once great nation into a European socialist empire. Unfortunately, he has succeeded and America is no longer a great nation.

If he needs a job, why doesn't he go on a mission? Spreading the Gospel is really the only way to change society, not politics.

To me, Romney seems past his political prime.

Putting that aside, in the USA, we have `musical pols', making the word
'representative' mean 'unrepresentative'. By definition, democracy can't
be delegated Switzerland gets democracy right. Its government isn't
public enemy #1.

Hey, Esquire, try opening your eyes, my friend.


America needs you.

Romney needs to do something constructive with his life like join the Peace Corp.

If Romney weren't Mormon I doubt anyone here would even care about him.

@ A Guy With A Brain, Obama hasn't done nothing to help this country because the congressional Republicans won't let him. If Romney had been elected, he wouldn't have been able to help this country either because of congressional Democrats. Romney lost the election because unlike Obama, he was not in tune with the minorities. There was no malfeasants going on. Romney bet on the white vote to get him in and found out otherwise, plus he made some political career ending remarks during his campaign. Even in Utah, I am seeing more and more people, including Mormon Republicans that are tired of hearing about Romney. He is old news and hopefully will ride into the sunset with his damaged political aspirations...

Mitt doing what he does best "taking other peoples money" to give to his buddies.

South Jordan, UT

Mitt Romney is a good man and would have made a great president. His influence for good is still being felt. I love to read articles about Mitt and his great family. They are definitely role models for the family in these troubled times.

@A Guy with a Brain
Obamaphone? That program was started under a Republican administration. Besides, Romney promised you tax cuts and somehow a balanced budget without requiring any real sacrifice on your part since he said he'd protect entitlements too.

"It is to bad that our first Black President has turned out to just want what he wants and does not care about this Country. "

As opposed to the Tea Party which fundamentally refuses to compromise on anything and the Republicans who have set new records for filibusters?

Happy Valley Heretic,

Wait, you were just talking about Obama taking others money and giving it to his buddies.. This article was about Romney.



I don't understand your fixation on Mitt Romney, a private citizen who is doing no good for our country and holds no public position. It is a waste of time and media space to write a story every time he breaks a fingernail. Wouldn't it be better to focus on a Mormon who actually holds political office and who wins elections like Harry Reid? Yet for every story about Harry Reid, there are 100 stories about Mitt Romney. I just don't understand it. Mitt's political career is essentially over. If you want to look forward, you should perhaps focus on the next generation of Romney's (Tag or Bib or Bop) rather than the Romney who will never be president.

To Guy with Brain et al
You seem to be caught in a right wing radio fantasy feedback loop. Let's examine reality for a moment. Consumer sentiment is up. Unemployment is down. Financial markets are at an all-time high. Homes are being built again. We are spending less money on foreign wars. Things are not perfect, but if you believe they are worse please provide objective data to support your claims.
