Stephen Colbert shows why so many political satirists were hoping that Mitt Romney would stay in the campaign as long as possible.

I don’t understand it, ladies and gentlemen. I don’t understand why this guy did not catch fire with the American people. He had everything; he had the looks, he had the charm, he had the money, he had the résumé. Just look at some of the things he had accomplished.

Can you help us out?
