Losing a presidential election isn’t something you can just “get over.” In his first post-election interview on Fox News, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney suggested that he isn’t happy with the direction of the country and his major loss still affects him.  

“I don’t see that kind of leadership right now,” he said, and “it kills me not to be in there, not to be in the White House” to provide that direction. He also told Fox News that he was pretty confident that he would win. “We were convinced that we would win.”

That probably made the blow even harder. Ouch! [CBS]


Is this guy serious? Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) is digging his political grave after announcing that he refuses to have a female intern, just days after making a lewd remark (involving his genitalia) to a teenage girl at a legislative hearing.

Now the lawmaker is facing calls for his resignation, but he contends that he’s done nothing wrong. Ummm… [PoliticalWire]
