Stupid Should Hurt


This piece of crap from the Washington Post is one of the dumbest articles ever written:

A detached Romney tends wounds in seclusion after failed White House bid

The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.

Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla, a moneyed and pristine enclave of San Diego, at noisy construction workers fixing up his next-door neighbor’s home, sending out regular updates on the renovation. He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the “fiscal cliff” negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if.

Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who’s having a liver transplant soon: “I’ll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment.”

It’s not what Romney imagined he would be doing as the new year approaches.

Four weeks after losing a presidential election he was convinced he would win, Romney’s rapid retreat into seclusion has been marked by repressed emotions, second-guessing and, perhaps for the first time in the overachiever’s adult life, sustained boredom, according to interviews with more than a dozen of Romney’s closest friends and advisers.


noun \si-ˈklü-zhən\
Definition of SECLUSION

— se·clu·sive adjective

— se·clu·sive·ness noun

Synonyms: aloneness, insulation, privacy, secludedness, isolation, segregation, separateness, sequestration, solitariness, solitude

The article is three pages long but I showed you everything you need to see. This is the basic outline:

1. Mitt Romney is in “seclusion”.

2. He doesn’t have a job.

3. He has lots of visitors.

4. He makes lots of phone calls.

5. He goes places like Disneyland and the gas station.

WaPo sure has a really strange definition of “seclusion”.

Yes, Mitt Romney lost the election. That was less than a month ago. The campaign is over. That means no more rallies and fundraisers. No more strategy meetings or debate preparations. No more speeches.

That stuff was a big part of Mitt Romney’s life for the past two years, so yeah, he has some spare time these days. What exactly do they think he should to be doing right now, holding daily press conferences?

Is this obsession with Mitt’s daily activities gonna be a regular thing like it was with Sarah Palin? It used to be that the media lost interest in losing candidates as soon as they made their concession speech. But when Sarah lost they just couldn’t quit her.

No offense to the Romney family but I really don’t want to see any of them on DWTS or reality TV.

    They need to talk about some leader, and he’s the only one they’ve got.

  2. elliesmom says:

    Obama won the election, and he’s headed for 20 days of “seclusion” on a beach in Hawaii. Maybe while Obama is in “seclusion”, the Post wants Romney to solve the current fiscal crisis, stop global warming, and negotiate a middle east peace accord.

    • Simofish says:

      LOL – that’s the truth. GREAT idea, bring Romney in to fix the crisis. Barry is a one trick pony – everyone else does his work for him.

  3. leslie says:

    Can’t they just leeeeeeave Romney alooone???

    Geeesh, These are certainly the poorest winners I’ve ever seen. The term “bad winner” most assuredly applies to Bronco and the Obots.

    Ha Ha! You left out the best part about Queen Ann weeping in private because her destiny to become first lady to our new Mormon overlord was dashed. Where’s alien Jesus now bitches?? And Mitt hasn’t been running for the past two years, try seven. Now he’s just a sad old loser. You know, I heard the reason it took him so long to concede was because Ann was inconsolable. She believed God had promised them the presidency. Some say she had already chosen the pattern for the White House china. Now she’ll never get it. And that’s what breaks her vain, shallow heart the most. She may have all the money in the world but she can’t buy that. Poor dear, perhaps getting back to torturing horses will begin to help the healing process.

      Are you serious or are you being sarcastid? You sound like a crazy person.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Wow, Romney derangement syndrome ! RDS! Vile Prog on board !

      Wanda, how do you feel about Michelle Obama ? Just wondering…..

    • DandyTiger says:

      More issues than National Geographic. It’s weird to see people so stunningly angry when they supposedly won. Why can’t Wanda here or other Obots let go? What is their mental deficiency? Their entire life seems to be still wrapped around Romney and destroying him. Will this keep going forever?

      Here’s my theory. Obama ran a whole campaign on destroying Romney. On “not Romney”. He has a mandate to not be Romney. Whatever that means. Everything about the campaign was actually about Romney, and not about the record or what to do next. So his followers are still focused on Romney, simply because that’s all there is. There is no plan. There is no good record. There is no hope. There is only destroy Romney. It’s like a broken robot walking around “kill romney”, “kill romney” etc.

      • DandyTiger says:

        The hatred towards Ann is particularly telling. A cancer surviver and someone suffering with MS, and they are writhing with pure hate towards her. That’s some serious crazy shit right there.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Yep, I thought the same thing. If the media, lefty blogs and vile progs stop writing about hating Romney and any other conservatives, who will they write about? Obama? Nah. There’s no there there. And we win 😀

      • angienc says:

        It’s exactly this.

        He ran as “not Clinton” then “not Palin” (and to a lesser extent “not McCain”) in the GE and now he ran as “not Romney.”

        Sadly for this country — he really is the opposite of all of those successful LEADERS who have lived lives of service, so he wasn’t lying.

    • swanspirit says:

      Wanda is delusional , and is obviously non compliant with taking her medication . I am certain her computer privileges will be held until she is rational , if that ever happens .

  5. leslie says:

    Will someone please write a response to these asshats?

    I can’t do it. (and I have in the past – even though the comments never made it into print). I’ve got to go take care of my grand baby Josie today and then take my oldest daughterr to a play as a welcome home the rest of the day.

    Happy Sunday everyone.

    Stupid does hurt….and after a while “arrogance” hurts even more!

    • Mary says:

      And Miss Wanda exemplifies both.

      She sounds like an adolescent. Ugh. Srsly, UGH.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I don’t understand such hate, it saddens me 😦

        • Mary says:

          Easily led, co-dependent personalities who thrive on trashing others (false info they get from guttersnipes like O’s campaign).
          It’s like they’re still in high school and think such blah-blah-blah will get them to the “cool kids” lunch table, when the “cool kids” are actually just using them. They never think for themselves.

          It saddens me, too. Such a country, without true thinkers.

        • cj says:

          They’re just a mob of celeb groupies, Denise. It’s got nothing to do with politics or government or leadership & it’s really got nothing to do with Mitt Romney, Ann or even Sarah Palin. If you’re not for Obama, they hate you. It’s a simple as that.

          When the Obamas leave the scene, they’ll disappear from politics forever, 4 years older and probably not any wiser. And they still won’t be able to articulate a reason for all the Obama love. Sad.

        • lyn5 says:

          The Obama zombies won’t let him leave the WH, because they don’t understand the two-term limit. Just wait and watch.

        • cj says:

          I’ve always been worried about the ignorant thugs trying to pull a stunt like that, lyn, which is why I threw my lot in with the Republicans for the last 2 election cycles.

  7. yttik says:

    LOL! You know, I’d give anything to be a “deflated loser in seclusion” like Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin. Those two have taught me that the best revenge is always great success. And that sometimes when you lose you really win.

    Seriously, who wants to “win” if you have to walk around in bitterness and hatred all the time, like the sore winners who drop troll turds in these threads?

    You won! Enjoy your free Obamaphone and unemployment line.

    Somewhere deep inside these bots and news media know that they are royally screwed with Bronco cheating win. They would fall completely apart if their ‘Hero” was exposed for the no nothing no good person he really is. As Bronco’s policies take effect and their suffering increases (along with ours sad to say) they will transfer their loathing to anyone else than their ‘hero.’

    The Wash Post is nothing more than crap – not sure if it’s even good enough to be used in the outhouse.

    Watching the Tower, a six hour docum. narrated by Sean Pertwee. Amazing that it’s still standing after 900 hundred years.

    Wishing all a good Sunday – do something fun.

  10. lyn5 says:

    To win, Obama mined the low-information voters with Romney hate. The left always made fun of the GOP religious fundies; now the right can make fun of the Dem low-information voters.

    Ambulance gets ‘booted’ while paramedics tend to emergency

    The Quicky’s convenience store in Mid-City takes its parking lot rules seriously. Very seriously.

    About 4 p.m. Friday, New Orleans paramedics rushed inside the store for a man with a life-threatening medical issue.

    They worked on the patient with chest pain, put him inside the vehicle, then started to speed off.

    The paramedics “heard a loud noise,” and the vehicle came to a screeching halt, according to Jeb Tate, spokesman for New Orleans Emergency Medical Services.

    The medics stepped out and found a boot on their ambulance.

    Convenience store employees allegedly put a restrictive parking boot on the ambulance. And now it was stuck.

    The paramedics were perplexed.

    Tate said the ambulance had its emergency lights on the whole time.

    Store employees didn’t want to talk about it. They declined requests for comment.

    Romney should have every vile thing that truly represents his 6 year run for the White House thrown at him. In an atmosphere of ABO with blatant criminal activity and the worst economy in the history of the country , he laid back on engaging and dissed the most important Republican and the Tea Party. People frequently mistake the role of a Salesperson and the fixit crew. Romney couldn’t sell it so his strengths as the fixit guy didn’t come to fruition. The salesperson gets you invited to the backroom. He didn’t. Make the sale plain and simple. We al get to suffer now, 👿

    • piper says:

      you’re entitled to your opinions which differs from reality on the ground.

      Stories are already coming out about voter fraud even here in Wisconsin.
      Stop blaming and hating on Romney – it won’t even buy you a cup of coffee.

      • carol haka says:

        Reality on the ground is he didn’t engage in debates 2 or 3. He couldn’t discuss RomBarryCare. He ignored and dissed the conservatives, the Tea Party, and Sarah Palin followers. He didn’t go after Benghazi, Fast & Furious or a 1000 other topics that have infuriated a millions over the last 6 years. He laid back played it safe and had a few thousand votes stolen from him. BFD, he should have won by millions. It should have been a blowout landslide.
