A Delusional Mood Swinging Mitt Romney Thinks That He Could Have Saved America

mitt romney

Mark Leibovich of the New York Times scored an interview with the maybe-going-to-run-again Republican former Governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney that is steeped with the usual Mitt Bits. We have self pity, delusion, bizarre mood swings, and ye another excuse for his own mistakes.

To start, Mitt fears being a “loser for life.”

If only he had won, he would have saved this country because he is so much more competent than Barack Obama. He is so sorry he let us all down. The consequences of his loss to humanity are enough to make him near tearing up:

No matter how content he appeared, when the conversation turned to his disappointment in losing, his voice dropped. “It really kills me,” he said. “It really kills me.” He became inaudible, and it seemed as if he might tear up.

As if to rescue him, Ann called out from the kitchen that lunch was ready. Mitt remained in the living room, now staring at the floor. “The consequences of my loss are very clear to me and to a lot of people,” he said. “And that’s really hard.” His voice dropped to nearly a whisper, before he caught himself and quickly pivoted. “Let’s get a sandwich!” he bellowed.

Ah, yes. Get that sandwich while humanity blows up due to his failure to save us all. We will forgive Mr. Romney, after all, it wasn’t his fault he got caught on tape hating half the country. About that…

That wasn’t his fault either, and not for the many reasons he gave us before (as detailed excellently by tape breaker extraordinaire David Corn at Mother Jones), but for a new, totally fresh reason. It’s the rich guy who asked the question’s fault. Loving this!

This, as he saw it, was what got him in trouble at that Boca Raton fund-raiser, when Romney told the crowd he was writing off the 47 percent of the electorate that supported Obama (a.k.a. “those people”; “victims” who take no “personal responsibility”). Romney told me that the statement came out wrong, because it was an attempt to placate a rambling supporter who was saying that Obama voters were essentially deadbeats.

“My mistake was that I was speaking in a way that reflected back to the man,” Romney said. “If I had been able to see the camera, I would have remembered that I was talking to the whole world, not just the man.” I had never heard Romney say that he was prompted into the “47 percent” line by a ranting supporter. It was also impossible to ignore the phrase “If I had to do this again.”

So, take comfort, y’all — if Romney had to do this again, and he might because the Republican 2016 hopefuls are dropping off to indictments and ethics charges like flies, he’d remember that when he is speaking to anyone anywhere he is speaking to the world. Thus, he will keep his contempt to himself. Well played, Sir.

Romney explained the Republican contempt for President Obama. You see, the problem with Obama is that he actually listens to his wife Michelle Obama and top female aide Valerie Jarrett. Bemoaning that Obama didn’t take his advice upon his cursory post election visit to the White House, Romney sorted it by explaining that a top Republican had already explained the problem.

“No one gets the impression that what they are saying is being incorporated,” he told me. “I won’t mention who it was, but I met with one of the nation’s top Republican leaders, and he said, ‘You know the strange thing is that the president seems to answer to only two people — Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama.'”

Mitt Romney has been accused repeatedly of being over-dependent upon his wife, Ann, to such an extent that he has been said to suffer severe emotional problems due to a separation from her. So, he might not be the best person to lob this accusation at Obama. But maybe that’s exactly why he’s doing it. Maybe that’s why he lost in 2012. Clever 2016 strategy!

Next up: It’s Ann’s fault. Anything is possible, after all, the Mitt bus just ran over a very wealthy donor. When this guy, who hates “those people” for being those people (so tacky to be born without a silver spoon, spoiling the view for everyone else), attacks the money people, the ambition is burning.

  1. Like Grover said of Mittens
    The requirement for president?

    Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.

    Right now we would be bombing Russia, Iran, Syria a trade war with China and for dessert invade North Korea all the while being Brownback on steroids with the whole nation in a kochsuckers petri dish

  2. Losing the presidency only “Kills” Mitt Romney because it was probably the only time in his life he didn’t get something he wanted. Plus, it was the only time his wealth couldn’t buy him what we wanted. It also “Kills him” that he was rejected by the majority of voters who chose of all things a black man insead of him.

    I’m not sure why Romney keeps lamenting over his loss & the fact that the POTUS doesn’t take his advice other than his being an extremely poor loser & a narcissist.

    Please go away Mitt.

  3. Oh, Romney Please….enough with the sel-pity and regrets. You LOST! Get over it. No excuses, no : It was because of this that and the other….. NO! It was because of YOU. What you said, how you think and how you operated. Maybe if you had shown 10 years of your tax returns you might have made it (Snark…I doubt that, but seriously, IF you had won, do you think ISIS would have not reared its ugly head, just because YOU were President? Or that Putin would have come to the White House and kissed your ring, and behaved? Get Outta here!

  4. Damn! Is anything ever, ever his fault. He is as big a crybaby as his snotty wife.

    I wonder just how many versions of “it’s not my fault” he has thrown out there now for the 47% comment.

  5. Geez Louise, Mitt, we didn’t want you then and we don’t want you now, or ever. YOU LOST. Go away. And take Bad Lovey with you.

  6. Mitt & Ann Romney still in shock that they were unable to buy the office of POTUS…

    I wonder how they will handle getting defeated again?!

  7. Lovey says it’s time to run again, Thurston. Come on out of the elevator garage and give that nice Munster boy a call and see if he can play.

  8. Oh please, how many wars would we be fighting with this Ass as President. How many Americans would be dead without the ACA? How many Americans would be homeless because Mitt would raise taxes so much they could not pays rent or morgages. He would be smiling for the cameras while his sons would be looting the country. Could you see Snotty Miss Ann as “First Lady”? HELL NO!!!!!!

  9. Well, if he’s so upset about losing in 2012, he’ll be really torn up when he loses in 2016.

    Honestly, he has family…why aren’t they medicating him by now? Or committing him? He’s delusional and drowning in self pity while at the same time having an over-inflated sense of self-importance.

    He can save the world! Only he can do this! All problems will be solved with Mitt Romney!


    He has no business being POTUS. None whatsoever.

    More to the point, he doesn’t really want to BE president – he just wants the highest office in the land because he’s got nowhere else to go. That’s it – the Oval Office, doesn’t get higher than that.

    He wants the notch on his belt. The title on his stationary and business cards.

    Then he can walk around like more of a fluffed up turkey than he already does.

  10. “Let’s get a sandwich!”…..like dangling a shiny object in front of a petulant child, crisis over.

  11. Romney can’t count on the “Anybody but the black guy vote” this time. I don’t think an “Anybody but the woman” vote will be as strong.

  12. Is this the same Mitt who let it be known through his son after he lost the last election that he didn’t even want to be president? It is so hard to keep up with ALL of his personalities. And I dont like any of them!

  13. I hope his “special underwear” gives him an itch he can’t scratch.

    Scotty beam him up to the Mormon planet Kolub which is nearest to the throne of God.

  14. He was against abortion, but when his son was concerned about the outcome ofhis wife’s pregnancy, Daddy said,” we’ll take care of that”. Are there any handicapped children practicing Mormonism???????????

  15. Delusional do not fit these two false prophets. For Mitt and Ann to find fault in anything they have done or will do would require a total mental break by both from their deep seated religious leanings…. Two peas from that “cesspool of deceitful religious liars” that truly believe that they are the “chosen” to ride that “mythical mormon white horse” to save our nation from itself. Don’t get one wrong about anyone religious leanings, but, pathological lying, religion and politics, is a mixture that absolutely nothing good can come from. Historical and present facts validate this assumption. Those countries that have tried or continue to try this mixture find demise over historical time. The Roman Empire and the Tea Party could fit well here. Mitt and Ann are not only frighten here but truly fits well here. Too try to separate them from their religious leanings would be impossible, especially since Mitt has been living that white horse myth for over 2 score years now.

  16. Romney had the percents switched–he got the 47% of the vote.

    If he couldn’t get that right, jeez.

  17. it’s interesting how Republicans can never accept defeat. McCain simply morphed into a jealous, mean, old man grabbing every microphone possible to use in attacking President Obama and Romney wanders around his mansion whining to anyone in the vicinity. Pathetic. Both of them.

  18. the more I read (on my second time thru the article), the “head down and inconsolable” and then up and booming, “Let’s get a sammich”, I gotta go with “Mitt’s Bi-polar”. It might have been less so when he was younger, but he’s sliding toward the drain.

  19. My biggest nightmare is people continuing to vote against their own economic interests due to ignorance. I found a tool that can be helpful http://www.istandwith.com – it asks questions on policies, then compares the answers to who supports those policies – even going so far as to drill down locally.

    It’s a useful tool for the low information voter and could surprise alot of people if they answer the questions truthfully.
