Mitt got a little ahead of himself.

I'll bet his Presidential library is half built already! The contractors probably found all their lines of credit cancelled around 11:00pm EST Tuesday night!

8 minute show on standby? Did he get a refund? Why did he pull the plug on the show - all those people in Boston were deprived of their enjoyment. How selfish of Romney. It's similar to getting stood up at the altar on a wedding day - do you send your guests home and throw out all that prime rib and shrimp cocktails?

Damn little bit of mitt hate here. Why should staffers still have lines of credit? I assume the purpose of them was for campaign related work.

Also what should he have done, keep his campaign employees working on a campaign that is over and do.e. I hope you guys dont run the country that way.

If I had money, id celebrate too.

Well, the person who recorded that is a hero in my book.
Irony of all ironies but it was President Jimmy Carter's grandson James Carter IV that recorded Mitt Romney in making the infamous 47% comment.

Jimmy Carter's grandson, James Carter 4th, is man who unearthed Mitt Romney's '47 percent of Americans dependent upon government' video - NY Daily News

Reports: Jimmy Carter’s grandson helped leak Romney fundraiser video

He most certainly did and that was his undoing!

Do you honestly think that any presidential candidate wakes up on Election Day thinking that they are going to lose?

Do you walk into job interviews - knowing that you are wasting your time - because you know that you won't be hired?

Mitt Romney was prepared - either way.

Nice attempt at spin - though.

Dude, fireworks? HAHAHAHAHA..Willard was really feeling Willard. Doesn't get much more pompous than that. At least Willard lived up to his image right up until the end.

Uh, you may not have noticed, but Obama won. Again. And he didn't have fireworks either time.

So?

What do fireworks have to do with anything?

Are you honestly claiming that you be would be criticizing President Obama if he had used fireworks?

Are you also admitting that you would be criticizing Romney if he had won - and used the fireworks?

Do you really think that your hypocrisy isn't abundantly clear?
