Dana Milbank: How Dare Romney Withdraw Back Into Private, Profit-Seeking Life After I and My Political Correligionists Trashed Him and Kept Him From Taking Office

Apparently, having been rejected by the liberal media elite, Romney now finds himself in the curious position of owing them something anyway.

I sense a pattern here. A pattern that involves endless obligations to work for free or donate money to the liberal machine, even if -- nay, especially if -- you actually oppose the liberal machine.

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. “It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott,” said Romney’s statement, distributed by Marriott.

It was emblematic of the tone-deaf, I-have-some-great-friends-that-are-NASCAR-team-owners moments that contributed to his loss. The country is in a crisis, political leaders in a standoff, and Romney is joining his buddy’s corporate board.

Romney is a private citizen now and free to do as he chooses. But it’s not as if he needs the money; the $170,000 in cash and stock that Marriott directors received in the most recent year reported is but a sliver of the $20 million or so Romney takes in annually from his investments.

...

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.

So what he wants is for Romney to agitate on behalf of Barack Obama and convince those crazy Republicans to give in for the sake of the country, before Obama is forced to shoot his hostage.

Isn't that always the way? Always demanding that Republicans force other Republicans to be Democrats.

Since Obama built his campaign on absurd opposition to everything Romney urged, what role could Romney possibly have? He couldn't advocate his own positions; Obama trashed them. So yeah, Romney is now supposed to join Obama push the policies Obama can't, so Obama can play more golf.

Forgive the blasphemy, but Jesus Christ Almighty.

Amusing... That it turns out that maybe the country needs Romney's financial acumen after all.

Maybe should have thought of that before.

PS, let it burn.

Romney's statement shouldn't have just been about joining the Marriot board of directors. He should have prefaced the statement with, "First off, to Dana Milbank and others, I'd like to extend a warm, welcoming FUCK YOU. How's my ass taste, bitches? Enjoy your inevitable unemployment as dinosaur media dies."

33 Miss Milbank is upset that Romney hasn't made any public statements critical of Obama or his policies.

That way, the left could then savage Mitt and the GOP about being unpatriotic and inhibiting "national unity".

Instead, Miss Milbank has to settle for criticizing Romney for not giving the left some statements to distort and then whine about.

Romney tried to help by running for president.
America rejected him.
He'd rather be busy than not (hence going to serve on Marriott's board, because it's unlikely about the money.) Its that simple.

Then twenty graphs later they mention that the last democrat to have a private sector job that was elected governor, twenty years ago, didn't quit his job with a law firm until he was sworn in.

That's OK he was a democrat he would know not to do anything bad, but this Republican probably does not better.

43 Milbank shares the same mindset as that skank local pol in Detroit who wants Obama to bail out the city because 75% of the city voted for him. "You owe us!" In fact, I'd wager that Milbank is even WORSE. Not only did he let his fellow media sluts savage Romney during the campaign and curtail his chances at election, but Romney is a private citizen who is free to do with his time and energy whatever he sees fit. How DARE Milbank and his cronies try to deny him that. It's vile.

Boehner is purging the Purists, to show the media/Obama how down-with-the-program he is.

It seems like there's a Thing happening.

If Romney actually resists the Thing, or even just refuses to join in on it, I'll take back one of the thousand times I said "Fuck that fascist creep." He may be as little as 999/1000ths of one.

Posted by: oblig. at December 05, 2012 03:31 PM (cePv8)

70 Though, I'll agree with a previous comment- from the Liberal's perspective, this is a completely reasonable article.

Their belief is that those who are rich somehow cheated or lucked their way into their wealth. Therefore that wealth is owed to everyone who is not rich. So Romney is avoiding his moral and patriotic duty by not "helping." Worse, to Liberals, he's not just not helping those who rejected him, he is helping himself.

Posted by: AllenG (Dedicated Tenther) Channelling Breitbart at December 05, 2012 03:31 PM (5DR1j)

71 Milbank, hah.

from Daily Caller by Weinstein:

In his new book, “The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks And Why He’s Convinced That Ignorance Is Bliss,” Comedian Evan Sayet strays from the humorous to explore why “Modern Liberals” support the policies they do.

“Modern Liberalism is a utopian ideology that is predicated on the notion that, since mankind lost paradise when Adam and Eve ate from the apple of knowledge, then mankind can return to paradise if only we’d all just ‘regurgitate the apple’ and give up all knowledge of right and wrong,” Sayet told TheDC.

“The notion is that, if we can eliminate the quest for what I call ‘the better,’ then there’d be nothing for people to disagree about. If people didn’t disagree about things, then they wouldn’t fight and, if they didn’t fight, then of course they’d never go to war. Peace on Earth — in fact, paradise — can be achieved, they’re convinced, if only they could eliminate the quest for the better.”

**Irony being, utopian ideology IS the quest for the better. So what gives? Utopia proves to be hell. There is nothing blissful about being the dumbest sucker, evah.

I also hope he told Obama that he didn't need any of his advice, since Obama was so much smarter.

Finally, I wish Romney would move his family somewhere safe and off-shore, along with his assets. I do not trust the Obama people, who seem to have a desperate need for a villain.

The spending is the big enchilada. Nothing happens unless the house agrees. The only good political play for the
republicans is to hold fast on no tax increases or perhaps no rate increases if they are feeling generous. Anything else they will get no credit for
and also lose their base. So its get the
blame, or lose your base and get the blame.


Then let Obama spend what comes in as it comes in. No
increase in the debt ceiling, no payroll cut extension, no unemployment benefit
extension, no stimulus, unless there are REAL BIG spending cuts. Then
put them on an allowance. They will have
two years to repair any public relations damage, they will never have any
more time than than that, not like they'd know what to do with it anyway.

Just came across this on StrategyPage dot org. I am only a few weeks behind.

"The Venezuelan Air
Force put lot of money and effort into creating an impressive show to
celebrate its 92nd anniversary on November 27th. It did not work out as
hoped. One of the aircraft being shown off was a new K-8 trainer,
recently purchased from China. It crashed, but the two man crew was able
to bail out just before the K-8 hit the ground. Then the helicopter
sent to retrieve the two K-8 crewmen crashed along the way. Five days
before two OV-10 aircraft collided while practicing for the air show.
That accident killed one and wounded three"

US mulls blacklist for radical Syrian rebel group

The United States is considering blacklisting a radical Islamist Syrian rebel group suspected of ties to al Qaeda, US officials said on Wednesday ahead of an international meeting next week on aiding the Syrian opposition.
.

My ideal conservative is style-wise someone like Dick Cheney. Unquestionably smart and capable, but is not afraid to take the gloves off and bash a few skulls in. He relished being hated by the likes of Dana Milbank.

At first, I liked Palin because she seemed to be cut from the same cloth, but she didn't have the other elements, namely she wasn't a capable leader, she was more of a celebrity personality.

It's a shame Chris Christie turned out to be such a spineless sell-out, he also seemed to have the taste of blood.

218 Ironically the new taxes will have relatively little effect on the detested Romney uber-class, who derive most of their income from capital gains, taxed at a much lower rate. They also have access to all manner of offshore dodges. Nor will it have much impact on Silicon Valley millionaires and billionaires, or the Hollywood moguls and urban land speculators who constitute the Democratic Party’s “good rich,” and enjoy many of the same privileges as their wealthy conservative counterparts.

The people whose wallets will be drained in the new war on “the rich” are high-earning, but hardly plutocratic professionals like engineers, doctors, lawyers, small business owners and the like. Once seen as the bastion of the middle class, and exemplars of upward mobility, these people are emerging as the modern day “kulaks,” the affluent peasants ruthlessly targeted by Stalin in the early 1930s.

225 In August, the Deputy Secretary-General of NATO stipulated that Syria is NOT Libya. Because Syrians coexist and do not live in segregated areas according to politics or ideological affiliations, there is no way for an interventionist "humanitarian" war to do anything but more harm than good. (The Air Force Magazine, October 2012)

Not that politicians want to admit their truth. They want the war. They want Syria destroyed, along with the Syrian civilians, the cities and populations. And what follows in that wake? The Muslim Brotherhood, strengthening the Wahhabi global caliphate design. As if the world "deserves" the Saudi Sharia law. As if the House of Saud is anything but consumed with their own obsessions.

The US Military is not doing the US Constitution or American citizens any favor by doling out terrorism against entire populations of foreign civilians, effecting genocide, without having even declared war on whichever government.

And Americans who believe what they read from the press, not knowing any better, do themselves no favor. As if most press reports aren't homogenized constructs of "news" according to political agenda.

He should volunteer to spend the next six months making a cross-country journey of atonement, where he reaches out to rednecks in red states and confesses his apostasy. He could lead many of them to a renewed faith in our Multiracial President, our lord and Savior, Barack.

Actually he has been too gentlemanly,I would not have been so gracious. I would be sniping from the sidelines for some time, pointing accusing fingers, particularly at the media.
When the next unemployment stats come out Romney should point out that if he had won the economy would be showing signs of improvement purely because investors would have started putting their money to work again. Is Dana sure he wants that?

240 The UK's Daily Mail has been running photos of Mitt Romney just about every day since he lost. The DM was squarely in the Obama-crotch-sniffing camp during the election, but now (like Dana), they just can't seem to let go.

Today they ran a photo of Mitt and Ann exiting a Costco with a couple of carts full of Christmas-related purchases (wrapping paper, lights, etc.). They mocked the Romneys for shopping at the discount store. No doubt they're pleased with the Obamas' lead-by--example "sacrifices" during this time of economic hardship -- like increasing the number of Christmas trees in the White House by 50% (because every home needs 54 designer "holiday" trees, funded by taxpayers).

No doubt the Obamas would not think of sending their taxpayer-funded flunkies to shop for their Christmas decorations at a discount store. Nothing but the best for the Obamas. After all, unlike the Romneys, they have no need to be careful with their money -- because it's not their money they're throwing around, it's ours.

No, you dickwad, his behavior has been, in a word, NORMAL. As in, a normal American businessman who has never been a career politician but was willing toput himself out there as a capable business leader and work for us for four years to save the country from bankruptcy.

Now that the country has said "no, thanks,"he's back to being what he always has been. A businessman, and a good one. Leftists who live off the government their entire careers (which includes Washington Post writers like Milbank, whose readers are all government workers or hangers-on) really don't get this, because they have never experienced it and probably don't even know anyone who has spent a career in the true private sector. They can't fathom a guy almost getting elected President and then being able to Just Walk Away and go back to his normal life. Liberals who lose elections never do this, they keep running for something elseor get themselves named DNC Chairman or put in charge of some bullshit commission to solve this or that problem.

Of all the completely revealing hackery that has come from Milbank, this one might be tops.

Oh, wait...

But of course - all losing Republican candidates must immediately shed their partisan cloak and join hands with their better. For the Good Of The Country, and The Children, of course.

Those who don't work, shouldn't eat PERIOD!!! Funny we pay for all of Obama's voters daily needs and he promises them more of our money to obtain their votes. Hey the 47 percenters that don't work for a living is what voted Obama into office, Republicans have all the money, so what does that mean. It means when we've had enough BS we'll do what needs to be done. Totally Idiotic Media.

257 Yeah, rediculous column by Milbank, but then, no surprise. The left wing is slowly slipping to left side of the Bell Curve...or maybe they've always occupied it?

258 The time to tell Romney what to do was in November. Perhaps Dana could ask Mr. Heinz or the Kennedys for their money. Oh, that's right...it's OK to be Democrat and rich, just not Republican and rich. Need help...GO ASK SANTA...you re-elected him.
