Ann Romney is quite bitter about her husband's loss in the 2012 presidential election, but the Romneys weren't the real losers, America was.
January 31, 2014

Losing a big election is a very painful proposition and one that takes a long time to get over, but for Ann Romney, they didn't lose at all. You see, it was America that lost out, because they didn't choose a phony candidate with a wooden disposition.

America is a nation of losers.

Ann Romney has a message for the country that rejected her husband: Your loss, America! The Romney family postmortem/movie promotion continued Friday with Ann reflecting on Mitt's defeat in the 2012 presidential election.

"I really believe this, you know, we lost, but truly the country lost by not having Mitt as president," Ann said during an interview on Fox News.

She opted to be "polite and nice" and not comment on President Obama's second term, but said she comes across people all the time who are "still really sad" about the outcome of the 2012 race.

The Romneys have had a ubiquitous media presence lately promoting "Mitt," the Netflix documentary that chronicles the former Massachusetts governor's two presidential campaigns.

Mitt said earlier this week that his biggest problem in 2012 "was me and my campaign."

"We made enough mistakes that we take responsibility, I take responsibility for those mistakes, and I wish we could go back and make it better, but time moves on," he said.

All those sad people with whom she comes into contact are obviously Fox News viewers that can't handle a Kenyan-born Muslim leading the country and use a Greg Gutfeld ringtone on their smart phones.

Atrios says:

Classy That the Romneys truly believed they were going to win is reason enough to be glad they didn't.

Stay classy, Ann!
