They're back! Mitt and Ann Romney to give joint interview to be broadcast on Fox News this Sunday. You might want to stock up on No-Doz.

Courtesy of HuffPo:  

In his first interview since November's presidential election, Mitt Romney compared the end of the 2012 campaign to the sensation of getting off a roller coaster. 

"We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs," Romney told Fox News' Chris Wallace in an interview set to air on Fox News Sunday on March 3. "But the ride ends. And then you get off. And it's not like, oh, can't we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It's like, no, the ride's over." 

The Fox interview, which Romney and his wife, Ann, sat down for this week, marks the former Republican presidential candidate's first since losing the race to President Barack Obama. Ann Romney said she believes the couple has done well with the post-election "adjustment," likening it to roles they have had in their church. 

"In our church, we're used to serving and you know, you can be in a very high position, but you recognize you're serving," she said. "And then all of a sudden, you're released and you're nobody. And we're used to that."

I hate to break it to  Ann Romney but to be honest they always were "nobodies." The only reason that Mitt even had a chance at the nomination is because he appeared to be less irrational then the rest of the GOP field.

Though, I have to say, as the campaign wore on we had reason to question that assumption.

As for that roller coaster analogy, from my perspective it seemed like a coaster that had almost imperceptible ups followed by terrifying, stomach dropping, lows. Who in the their right mind wants to continue riding THAT ride?


By the way here is a recent sighting of the ex-candidate stumbling through a store like an Alzheimer patient, to ask his wife which one of those two cereals is the one in the tiger commercials.

  2. I'm sure it was a fun ride for them; must be really easy to run for president without having a whole news network screaming that you're a terrorist, you're a Muslim (which I'm not sure why that's an insult, but whatever-- denying their chosen faith), you hate America, you deserve to be killed, you should be tried for treason, etc etc etc.
    Also, I find the picture of Mormon Romney with Cheerios to be hilarious. It's kind of a Mormon joke-- they always bring little baggies of cheerios to church for their little kids to eat during sacrament meeting.
    Ann, dahling, you two would not have had such an easy time if ANY-fucking-BODY had bothered to ask questions about your religion.

    Ok, Mr. Fancy Pants Alaska Librul Blogger, you go right ahead and gloat, but I've got news for you and the handful of deadenders who visit your defunct blog. Sure, Mittens didnt win the last election, but he came in a VERY impressive second place. And when you factor in all the Democrat's voter fraud, Mittens actually won by a landslide!

    You completely misunderestimate Mittens' single-minded determination to add "President of a large English-speaking nation" to his resume.

    And what's even more important, is the undeniable electoral trend. In 2008, Mittens won only thousands of votes during the primary campaign, but in 2012 he got MILLIONS of votes.

    DO THE MATH, BUDDY BOY!! In 2016, if he does nothing but maintain his current trajectory, Mittens will receive BILLIONS of votes. And if he still loses then, I GUARANTEE you, he will be back in 2020 and earn - get this - TRILLIONS of votes!!! It's irrefudiatible!

    (And while all the menfolk are working on Mitten's next victorious campaign, the womenfolk will be helping his lovely wife Anvil study up on the mom dance, nutrition for little brown babies and all the other things that she'll do even better than that Obama character's so-called wife.)

    Get used to it, libruls: it's MITTENS2016, for sure!!! (and probably 2020, also, too...)

    At least he knows he'll get the black vote this time.

    I heard Romney will be at CPAC. I would pay to see Ann and Scarah square off and have Ann question why she interrupted her husband's announcement in New Hampshire. Also too, the weak endorsement of a measly $5000.

      Ann's outfit will cost way more than $5,000. Maybe Ann can thank Sarah for her new string of pearls..

      Sarah: "Ann, did you and Mitt get that $5,000 I so generously sent in one week before the election?"

      Ann: "Why, yes we did. Thank you so much for my new strand of pearls. Aren't they lovely?"

      Sarah: muttering to herself while slinking off into a corner: "Fu**ing Bitch!"

    No one wants to acknowledge that this was the worst candidate ever put up by either party, in history.

    Its over now, so why try to learn any lessons from it?

    I heard that a Republican primary was just won by a convicted felon, last night. That makes my claim from a year ago, that if Charles Manson is ever released from prison, and declares himself a "severely conservative candidate," that the flock of idiots who voted for Romney in spite of all the sleazy information that came out about him, would fall all over themselves to get to the polling booth to vote for him.

    After all, despite that forehead swastika tattoo, he IS a white man...and has leadership skills!

    Why is Mittens standing in a CVS looking dumb? Also---why is he still doing loser interviews with Egg? I guess its true that she thought she was running too. Well, she helped his ass lose.

    1. they would never admit it. If there's one thing Mormons are good at selling, it's the image of a picture-perfect family. DO NOT buy what those door-to-door missionaries tell you about family is forever. Mormonism is not about family love at all.

    Ann Romney Moans About Being a Nobody After Mitt Lost in 2012

    Chris Wallace painted a bleak picture of life after a campaign loss, “In a flash, it was all gone.” He didn’t stop there. Wallace drove the knife in, “Secret Service, the crowds, the intensity, the minute by minute schedule and suddenly — nothing. How tough is that?”

    I swear to God, it gives me the creeps when I see those two. The dynamics between them is more like mother and son than husband and wife. I tried to ignore it, but it's impossible. He's CONSTANTLY looking for her approval like a little boy and fawning over her in a way that isn't ADULT. Just heebie-jeebie. He can't seem to function without her. And when she's on the scene, she comes across as such a whiny, bitchy woman. I've yet to see her in any other light. She has little to no class, she tries to cover up her bitterness, but it still seeps through. Loser couple all the way.

      Any time he would be standing or sitting next to someone else who was speaking, he looked so uncomfortable. He'd have a tense look on his face and a forced half-smile. Very weird.

      Go to a Mormon church this Sunday and just try to blend in. All the priesthood members try to shake everyone's hand and they all have that constipated smile on their faces. They all have a very ... unique (?) cadence to their voices when they're speaking in front of groups. Seriously, they all sound the same. It's creepy.

      He has this look that begs "poor me, pity me" that all sharks have when they lose and want to avoid all backlash : fake childishism, and begging for protection.

      In my experience, it's the other face of those people who get their best kicks out of firing people. When they are denied a good firing, they try to manipulate you into being sorry for them. They thing it's what looks "human".

      Whinny spoiled billionaires.

    Nice to see Richy & Bitchy Rich again. Just curious, but Bitchy didn't run for pres. so why is she part of the interview? Is Bitchy speaking at CPAC with Richy? It's like she needs to finish his sentences, and give his hand a squeeze when he says something wrong.

    I remember news stories about how she was taking Mitt's loss way worse than Mitt. This is what happens to a lot of Republican women when they get old, their kids grow up and they lose their youth. They've spent their time wrapped up in their husbands' identities and with being mothers that they have no clue what to do wth themselves. The anti-feminist church crowd never tells women about the risks behind The Joys Of Being A Surrendered Wife And Good Mother. I'm betting Mrs Romney will get even MORE insufferable with time.

    "We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs," Romney told Fox News'"

    He's right. For me his most thrilling down was when President Obama so graciously encouraged him to "Please, proceed, Governor."

    Of course, having to cancel his fireworks display over Boston harbor on election night after all of his friends flew their private jets into Logan to celebrate was a close second.
