Mitt Romney: Obama ‘Even Worse Than I Expected’

Mitt Romney traveled to West Virginia this week to lend his support to some Republican Congressional candidates and the event predictably turned into an Obama hatefest.

While outside of the event, union activists slammed Romney for being a “fat cat” and the “king of exporting jobs,” the crowd inside chanted “Mitt! Mitt!”

“I’m not running,” Romney reminded everyone. “I’m expecting to be getting behind some good people or a good person who will be [the Republican nominee].

Naturally the core of his speech was aimed at Obama, saying he was “a good deal worse than even I expected.”

“I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally. But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted,” Romney said.

One candidate, Shelley Moore Capito, said, “Governor Romney endorsed us today, and it means a lot to me. As every West Virginian knows, all 55 counties in West Virginia voted to have Governor Romney be our president, and we are regretful that it didn’t work out.”

Speaking about his own potential future, Romney was asked if he would be up for a rematch.

“Wouldn’t that be nice?” he joked. “But that’s not the reality of how the world works. Of course, the president won fair and square, and I respect the fact that he’s the president and hopefully he’s able to do what it takes to get America going again.”

      These people are out to turn Democracy in to a Theocratic Oligarchy. Put God in anything and they follow like the rats did for the pied piper. If only they’d disappear like the rats did.

      • Mark Lasky

        How is that Thom? meanwhile liberal dopes like you never heard of Secular Totalitarianism which you are apart of.

        • Thom Lee

          Hi Mark. I understand you probably aren’t capable since sanity is required but you and your kind are the problem NOT the solution to anything.

          • Mark Lasky

            Don’t project your own insanity onto others. Your kind does that.

          • Thom Lee

            You are one sick troll.

      • Thom Lee

        Mark. One doesn’t need to be liberal to KNOW THERE HAS TO BE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE for the government to work properly. Do what you choose in your church but keep it out of WE THE PEOPLE’S government.

        So many people are now voting because of religion. NOT because the are an American with voting privilege.

        How else can the GOP/ TEA PARTY and all the damage they’ve done and continue to do be explained? Get God and guns or whatever pandering works going and people get all crazy and don’t vote for the good of all but for what is good for them.

    • Mark Lasky

      No if anyone is racist it’s Holder who only protects Black Americans Moron. Guess what firsthand imbecile? Hillary is a 1%er

      • Thom Lee

        Your hood and gown are showing Mark.

        • Mark Lasky

          Your ignorance and lack of any facts are showing along with your stupidity.And by the way? the KKK were Democrats! which shows that your IQ must be about 4.

          • Thom Lee

            When the original democrats realized how wrong and evil it was. The republicans were more than happy to stay on or jump on that bandwagon. Now the tea party are joining in.

  • Judy Aldrich

    Why is he slamming Obama when he is in West Virginia supporting the Republican Congressional Candidates and here he is slamming Obama. Oh Mitt must be blind “America is has been “Going” for a long time. Wake up Mr. M.

    • Mark Lasky

      Obama is easy to slam because he is the worst. It’s like a sport now.

      • Judy Aldrich

        You have it all wrong, Its Bush baby that is the worse of all.

        • M Owens

          Wrong, Obama is worse than even Dubbya. At least with Bush we knew where he stood and he acted on what he believed in. Who knows what Obama believes in?

          • Judy Aldrich

            Bush was a lier.

          • M Owens

            “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what. … You can keep your family doctor.”

          • M Owens

            Crickets…

      • Thom Lee

        Insanity prevails yet again. The GOP, TEA PARTY AND FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS are the worst thing that has ever happend to America.

        • Mark Lasky

          No far left secular hate filled Governemnt totalitarians are.You are destroyers of a free society.

          • Thom Lee

            Sorry to disillusion you. A fundamentalist is a fundamentalist. They have three goals. Keep women subserviant, control and ultimate power. Just like Al Qaeda.

          • Mark Lasky

            Don’t be sorry, you live in delusion.

          • Mark Lasky

            No Al Qaeda is supported by Obama in Syria actually he also supported Morsi in Egypt who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Qaeda wanted to impose a tax on people just like Democrats want to do to people.
            Christians are happy people and help strangers with food and clothes and shelter,which proves how ignorant you are.Sounds like you are an adolescent.

          • Thom Lee

            No, I’m a 70 year old white guy. Fortunately only third generation American so not as brainwashed as many others. Right out of high school entered a Benedictine Monastery.

            I know for sure SOME Christians do good works. But as a whole man made organized religion is merely a control mechanism. These people could do the very same good works minus it. Guess religion is better than no motivator to do them.

            Spent my working life time in medicine doing what needed to be done to give people a better quality of life.

            Outside work have volunteered at soup kitchens and hospice.

            My people fled Eastern Europe to get away from oppression and certain death. Came here through the legal route and after earning enough as coal miners became self employed businessmen. They were republicans. With time, it became the very thing they fled. I’m glad they weren’t here to see it happen

            My beginning interest in politics was when I was a young Dem and worked for JFK. Even got his autograph. I’m an independent. I have never registered with a party. I used to vote Libertarian until realizing making a political statement wasn’t worth losing a vote. Now like so many people I vote for lesser of two evils.

  • IG: HRAttire

    Okay so back woods racist endorse another racist

  • Faqi

    What’s he on about? The American people rejected him fair & square. President Obama won hands down, He is doing a wonderful job. Hidden racists may not think so, That does not matter.

    • Mark Lasky

      Doing a “wonderful job” ?? yeah if you are a Muslim Terrorrist he has.

      • Thom Lee

        It’s this sort of insanity that has already undermined and set America into a death spiral. Guess we’re bound to be doomed by terrorists. Homegrown or foreign. It’s the homegrown variety that are the most dangerous. They’re already here.

  • Faqi

    These people should be ashamed of themselves.”…these people have no shame, they are the people who follow Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly and Palin..professional haters. People who add nothing to the world, they only hate. I truly hope and believe that we outnumber them though.

    • Mark Lasky

      Sure they do..they are saying the obvious about a Dictatorial far left extremist collectivist Democratic President.

      • Thom Lee

        No again. They sound right because insanity has become your normal. They and anybody who buys their stuff are just as evil as them.

  • MoMo

    He just embarrassed himself AGAIN, but it too egotistical to even recognize that.

    • Mark Lasky

      So if he embarrassed himself what has Obama done? I will tell you he is an America Destroyer that is far beyond embarrassment doofus.

      • Judy Aldrich

        If he has destroyed American, why are you still living here. Move to Russia.

        • Mark Lasky

          That is actually where some Hollywood liberal types said they would go? what happened? Liberals historically are destroyers of societies,fortunately in America we can get them out of power over other people so they can’t destroy anything else.

          • Judy Aldrich

            Boy have you got it all wrong, its the conservatives that is destroying American, they will have you living under the Communist sooner then you think. If you want anything done, don’t wait on a conservatives, cause it will not get done.

      • Thom Lee

        No, it’s people like you that destroy America.

  • Mark Lasky

    He is worse than anyone thought.

    • Thom Lee

      Then you must be no one. He’s a far better human than you Mark.

  • Mark Hodges

    This MORON who ran for president didn’t win in ANY of the states he worked in!!!! What does that say about this idiot????

    • Thom Lee

      What’s important is he won. I realize it5 takes a rational mind to comprehend anything. So I don’t expect you to get this. YOU AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. NOT THE SOLUTION. It’s just very sad that the rest of us have to suffer BECAUSE OF YOU.

      • Mark Lasky

        Obama is in charge of the suffering right now doofus.

        • Thom Lee

          Only because the republicans cause it.

      • Mark Hodges

        Just wish you knew how to speak English!!!

    • Mark Lasky

      He is about 1000 x smarter than you which makes you the moron.Moron

      • Mark Hodges

        Coming from you Mark this means nothing you are second to Jacky as the dumbest person on here!!!

      • Mark Hodges

        LMFAO you should change your name to Ostrich since you don’t have a clue!!!! This idiot can’t even win his own states he worked in!!!! Why is that????? He lost in ever state he worked in. Learn how to read moron!!!!

        • Mark Lasky

          It’s “every” moron.
          You should change your name to Obama ball sucker. Obama by every measure is the worst President we have ever had other than Carter another Democrat Disaster. Tell me what Obama’s foreign policy is? Moron?

          • Mark Hodges

            You really thin Obama is worse than Bush? Wow you must be the dumbest person on the planet if your going to try and pass that off!!!

          • Mark Hodges

            By the way J E Wboy its called a type O lets not try and make it anything more than it really is we have Fox News for that the biggest propaganda machine for the 1%. LMFAO how do you get fooled by them? No facts at all!!!!

          • Mark Lasky

            Hillary is a 1%er you must hate her right?

          • Mark Hodges

            No I think Hillary should have been President. The republican house doesn’t like Black people, Poor people, Gay people, lain people, ect ect ect, unless you are a rich protestant. They also shut down the government so people like my friend who is a Vietnam vet couldn’t get his pay check along with millions of Vet’s and government works!!!! These people live paycheck to paycheck and republicans hate them and could careless about them! Kind of odd since they are Americans!!!!

          • Mark Hodges

            It really says nothing to you that Mitt lost in Boston Michigan and Virginia all places he held office? LMFAO boy you need to get a clue!!!

          • Mark Hodges

            Lets not count Bush out he killed people as well. Tens of thousands of American soldiers for a war with NO weapons of mass destruction!!!!!

          • Thom Lee

            The Jew boy is really uncalled for. You don’t know that for sure and although I’m guilty of it too it just brings us down to their level. It also lowers the validity of what we say. Nobody has any control over what they are born to. They do have control over how they think and act though. Just saying.

          • Mark Hodges

            Maybe for you not for me! I have seen and head enough! It used to be Merry Christmas but that is no longer proper. There used to be prayer in the school no longer its not proper either. All bullshit from a people where enough is never enough!!!!

          • Thom Lee

            Do you actually care about PC? Do you actually care what others think? Maybe it’s a benefit of aging but I care nothing about what others think. I don’t live a PC life.

            To people who obviously aren’t Christian I say nothing or wish the appropriate response. To all else it’s Merry Christmas. I’ve never had anybody say they were offended.

            In grade school we all said a generic grace before lunch. I still offer thanks even in public. If it offends some one their problem NOT MINE.

            Maybe the answer is to live for yourself not others. Make yourself happy. Others may not care to or bother to for you. Besides, it’s all up to us on the happiness issue.

            You’re right. There’s a ton more bull or at least overt bull in the world than the one I was born into. But I say bull to bull. I answer to nobody but God.

          • Mark Lasky

            So what is Obama’s foreign policy?

          • Mark Hodges

            Killed Bin laden when Bush couldn’t!!!!!!

          • Mark Lasky

            So you don’t know ok.

          • Mark Lasky

            Don’t you mean when Democrat Bill Clinton had 3 chances to kill Bin Laden and the coward didn’t? Then Bin Laden carried out 911 on America? which means 3000 people died needlessly. You’re a juvenile over your head

          • Mark Hodges

            MORON Bin Laden didn’t hit America when Bill was President this happened when Bush was president and he did nothing once he learned America was under attack. Bill left Bush a 200 Billion dollar surplus what did Bush leave Obama? 2nd largest deficient in our countries history!!!! God your a MORON stop watching Fox Propaganda show!

          • Mark Hodges

            Try google sorry no real interest in doing all that typing look it up yourself!

          • Thom Lee

            No, worst presidents began with St. Reagan and got worse with each republican after him.

  • janiez

    This from a jerk who lied all the way through his campaign.

    • Mark Lasky

      No he didn’t.
      But Obama did and does every night on TV.

      • janiez

        Not anywhere near what Ryan and Romney said and did. Apparently majority of voters felt the same way.

        • Mark Lasky

          Obama’s lied then and now.Obama breaks the law as well ask the Supreme Court.I bet you are hoping to vote for Hillary? she is a documented pathological liar.

  • dhebert

    Mitt please shut up!!!

  • Stanley William Shura

    You know you’re on the right track when you disappoint Willard “Mitt” Romney!

  • techjunc

    Nobody should be listening to Romney. Nor to Lindsey Graham and John McCain, the two leading old-white war hawks.

  • Travis

    Well he’s right. President Obama did do worse than expected. He did everything Republicans did NOT want to do, which is very bad for Republicans. It’s a matter of looking at it from his point of view.

    Mitt, I’m laughing at you.
