WaPo Dana Milbank: Romney lost, but he OWES Obama fealty or something [Darleen Click]
How dare Mitt go back to being a private citizen!
The nation is heading toward the “fiscal cliff,” but have no fear: Mitt Romney is coming to the rescue — of Marriott International Inc.
In his first public comments since election night, the defeated Republican presidential nominee issued a statement Monday announcing his next step. An appeal to national unity? A charitable initiative?
No, he announced that he was rejoining the hotel chain’s board of directors. [...]
Romney’s post-election behavior has been, in a word, small. Never again, likely, will his voice and influence be as powerful as they are now. Yet rather than stepping forward to help find a way out of the fiscal standoff, or to help his party rebuild itself, he delivered a perfunctory concession speech, told wealthy donors that Obama won by giving “gifts” to minorities, then avoided the press at a private lunch with President Obama.
Wow, 60 million Americans told Romney to go home, he does, now Obama’s media sycophants are whining that this “fiscal cliff” might be Mitt’s fault. What is Mitt supposed to do … oh wait
But this is a crucial time for the country and particularly for Romney’s Republican Party, which must unshackle itself from the far right or become irrelevant.
Ah! See, “losing” isn’t enough for the Left. Romney owes Obama a demonstration of his fealty by publicly destroying American principles and the people who still hold them.
Isn’t it nice to know what the new “proper behavior” is in this Age of King Barry I?
