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.

It’s official: Mitt Romney no longer sings the world’s worst version of “America the Beautiful.”
A few months after this candidate embarrassed himself with a rendition of that patriotic track, Meat Loaf took the stage at a campaign event in Ohio alongside Romney, John Rich and Randy Owens and free-styled about halfway through the song.
The result? A total trainwreck, and a Mitt Romney who looked more mortified than he would be in front of a convention for women’s rights…Meat Loaf Butchers America the Beautiful

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 >

An audio recording of President Obama speaking at Chicago’s Loyola University in 1998 has surfaced. In it, Obama outlines his belief in the redistribution of wealth.
Then-Illinois State Senator Obama spoke out against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to use its means to help the less fortunate.
Obama discussed the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.” Take a listen below …
The recording, leaked online Tuesday, is the obvious conservativeMore >
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising Republican political star, is not being vetted by Mitt Romney for the Vice Presidential nomination, according to reports.
It was widely assumed that even if he didn’t get the nod, Rubio, 41, would at least be on Romney’s short list of possible V.P. picks for obvious reasons.
Young, charismatic and wildly popular with conservatives, he could also help Republicans win a key state (Florida) and make inroads with Hispanics.
Apparently Romney isn’t looking at Rubio for the post, however.
The first-term Senator has not been asked to complete any personalMore >
If you’re running for national office, lovable Seinfeld loser George Costanza may not be a figure you should readily and enthusiastically equate yourself to.
But Mitt Romney did, and now Jason Alexander is commenting on it.
In his opening remarks at the Arizona Republican debate Wednesday, Romney said, “I want to restore America’s promise, and I’m going to do that.”
Before he could continue, the crowd began applauding, so the candidate quipped, “As George Costanza would say, ‘when they’re applauding, stop.’”
Jason Alexander, who played Costanza on the long-running series, used it as anMore >
Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney today in Las Vegas, Nev., contrary to earlier reports that he would get behind Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination.
“Mitt is tough. He is smart,” Trump said, Romney at his side at a Las Vegas hotel bearing his name. “It is my honor, and privilege to endorse Mitt Romney.”
Perhaps not coincidentally, Trump’s announcement comes two days before the Nevada caucuses, and 10 days before the premiere of Celebrity Apprentice.
Probably more so the latter.
While some questioned whether Romney, a clear favorite in Nevada, would even want the endorsement of Trump,More >
Stephen Colbert does not want to disturb you, but the leading candidate for the Republication Presidential nomination might be a serial killer.
The Comedy Central host, who is actually running in the upcoming South Carolina Primary, makes this startling accusation in a new ad from his Super PAC, one in which narrator John Lithgow follows Mitt Romney’s own line of reasoning to its logical conclusion.
If corporations are people, as Romney famously said at a campaign event last year, and if Romney gutted a number of businesses during his days in the private sector, well… what otherMore >
Mitt Romney rolled to victory in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday, becoming the first GOP candidate since 1976 to win the Iowa caucuses and N.H. back-to-back.
“Tonight we celebrate. Tomorrow we go back to work,” said Romney, who turned back a ferocious assault from his GOP rivals in recent days to win fairly handily.
In accepting victory, he delivered a pointed message to his opponents, urging them not to play into President Obama’s hands by trying to destroy his candidacy.
“In the last few days, we have seen some desperate Republicans join forces with him,” Romney said. “This is such aMore >
Mitt Romney has a sizable lead in most New Hampshire polls heading into the first primary of the Republican nomination race, but did he take on water today?
With the election set for Tuesday, Romney is expected to win, with Ron Paul in second in every survey to date. Thus, the rest of the field is playing catch-up.
Newt Gingrich, in particular, took Mitt to task today twice over:
- Romney’s insistence that he is not a career politician
- His connection to Super PACs running attack ads
After Rick Santorum asked Romney why he didn’t run forMore >
The Democratic National Committee is going hard after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a four-minute ad modeled after a Hollywood style movie trailer.
The title: Mitt vs. Mitt. Tagline: “The story of two men trapped in one body.”
The White House and Democrats as a whole have long criticized Romney for appearing to change course on a number of issues of our time … okay, all of them.
The one thing Mitt and Mitt agree on? They want to be president. That message will be broadcast across six key states as he campaigns to replace Barack Obama:More >
