2012 GOP Standard bearer Mitt Romney just left the CPAC stage and a major question was finally answered…why the heck was he speaking?
“It’s fashionable in some circles to be pessimistic about America, about conservative solutions, about the Republican Party,” he added. “I utterly reject that pessimism. We may not have carried the day last Nov. 7, but we haven’t lost the country we love, and we haven’t lost our way.”
“It is up to us to make sure that we learn from my mistakes, and from our mistakes, so that we can win the victories those people and this nation depend upon.
Saying he because he lost he was not one to offer advice but he provided advice anyway. Romney gave the names of Governors, especially those in blue states like McDonnell, Scott Walker, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Susanna Martinez as people who should be listened to. Interestingly, the ACU received criticism because two of those governors McDonnell and Christie were not invited to speak.
“I’m sorry I won’t be your President, but I will be your coworker and I’ll work shoulder-to-shoulder alongside you.”In the end, we will win just as we have won before, and for the same reason: because our cause is just and it is right.”
And ended up with:
“Thank you again for your help and support along our journey,” he said. “Ann and I will treasure these memories all the days of our lives.”
You are very welcome, Mr. Romney.
