Mitt And Ann Romney are Awful Visible! (Double Entendre)

Why the Romney's so visible? Have they come to grip with their political in competence in 2011/12?  Or, is Ann Romney still declaring God's will without consideration of the eleven points delineated in this screed.

We at the TPI actually believe the lingering visibility after a period of hibernation has a purpose. I predict, should Chris Christe fizzle into "nothingness, Mitt will flip-flop on recent  comments that he will "not, not, not, not run again!"
I have long posited, the Romney's seem to live in a world outside of our commonly shared reality. A fact that shouldn't surprise anyone since Mitt Romney is the ultimate "vulture capitalist" Top 1% (ers). He has few equals among uber wealthy people who aspire to win elected office and he matches up well with those who work behind the scenes in developing a US Plutocracy.
We will address the resurgence of the Romneys after a poignant piece from a friend of the TPI Brenda Kay Richards.

DISCLAIMER: The following comment is not meant to mock or be disrespectful to any particular religion or faith. It is simply a conclusion (right or wrong) if you will, of something that I've long observed in a large percentage of individuals who claim to be so devout in their faith.
Ann Romney, and her husband Mitt, are understandably quite disappointed that the 2012 election did not end in the manner which they, their family, their campaign team and their supporters had long hoped for. Now, I could launch into a lengthy discourse about how Mitt's own campaign advisers and senior staff were ultimately responsible for him believing that he had any sort of a chance of winning the presidency, when polling data showed the exact opposite, but that's not the point of my comment. 
Throughout the lengthy Republican nomination process and after having won it, and finally embarking on his presidential campaign, Mitt and Ann made frequent and regular references to their deep faith and belief in GOD. In numerous interviews Ann occasionally boasted that she "knew" that it was GOD's plan for Mitt to win. 
If Ann Romney was or wasn't being entirely truthful in her beliefs, it was not my place to question that. The Romney campaign never disputed her comments, so one must conclude that what she said was true and a reflection of her faith. 
So, why are Ann and Mitt are so bitter and angry at the voters 1.5  years after suffering a crushing lost in his bid for the presidency? Why isn't their anger justifiably directed at GOD, or more importantly, themselves? Why aren't Ann and Mitt questioning their faith, rather than questioning the will of the voters? 
This misguided anger is an observation that I've frequently noted in people who loudly boast and brag about their deep, sincere faith. The moment these individuals do not *get* what they swore GOD would unquestionably deliver, they blame everyone, sometimes even GOD. But they never seem to stop and ponder, if the ultimate fault lies not with GOD, the circumstances or the end result - but with them. 
Was their faith truly as strong, as confident, as true, as devout as they claimed? Or were they so caught up in promoting an image, that they failed to recognize and acknowledge that their faith really didn't match their words and bragging? 
Instead of hanging on to such bitterness and disappointment, Ann and Mitt should take a sabbatical and rediscover what their faith is suppose to mean to them and their lives.
Why reflect as such?

Ann Romney: 'The Country Lost' By Not Having Mitt Romney As President

Brenda Richards touched upon and delineated a telling side of the Romneys. Her screed also cogently spoke to a phenomenon that frankly, I personally tire of hearing.   

I offer another example, for sake of reflection and illustration. The day before the 2008 General Election, an alleged avowed Catholic (nothing against Catholicism; I am finding that much easier to keyboard as I assimilate Pope Francis) entered my office and said, "God don't let that man win tomorrow." The catholic guy (by happenstance) was also a bigot with roots deeply embedded in racism. I asked him, "Now what are you going to do if God does not grant your prayer?" He never answered. 

While I am not questioning belief in a higher spiritual order or lack there of, I cringe and think of Lucifer as I watch post-game, post-fight or post-concert interviews with a subject who exclaims, "......this was from God."  A bit of humor.... what about the game that ends in a tie?  Should I believe God couldn't nudge Lucifer a bit to the background to facilitate gaining a one point advantage?

As with any entertainer (sports or performer), what about the simple fact that one team outplayed, made fewer mistakes and benefited from superior circumstance (coaching, planning, organization).

Ms. Richard's point about self-reflection is "point-on" and an existential reality.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have joined in respectively stating "minorities" or "Urban voters" was the reason for Romney loss in 2012.  Urban voters!

Self-reflection is the key! If we cannot self reflect, we have to wonder in the Ann Romney context, why did God allow the following to take place. 

Let's explore just a bit.

I. Paul Ryan as running mate. (Budget tendencies, Ayn Rand disciple, record marathon lie, invasion of the soup kitchen with family for a fake photo op). 
II. Sunnunu as chief campaign adviser (Linked)
III. Insensitivity to people of color (Linked website outreach menu drop-down: Linked A, Linked B tan face at Univision Annual Events)
IV. 47% are takers and why bother with them (Linked video).
V. Ann Romney refuses to release financial history (Linked video)
VI. Romney's international blunders at every stop of this overseas trip.
VII. Romney's Auto Industry "Let them go Bankrupt." 
VIII. Romney lack of appeal to hard core conservatives. 
XIContinued backlash from Bush/Cheney
X. Despite GOP claims to the contrary and economy that had (in 2012) and continues to slowly improve.
XI. Political contribution for Obama came-in moderately higher than Romney contributions from the nations uber wealthy. Grass roots money "trumped" enlists conservative large contributions. 

Self-reflection is healthy and could take Mitt and Ann Romney to better place!   

Why are we even seeing and hearing from the Romney's? Is media leveraging a false alternative state the nation is worse off under Obama than in 2009?  Or, is media simply milking the Romney's for additional viewers who equate to ad revenue? When Ann Romney laments about "how it could have been" why isn't she asked for specific details of how the nation is failing under Obama?  A serious journalist would then ask, since she states such, what would Mitt Romney have done or would do differently? She could not possibly answer such questions. And, there-in lies the reasons some networks do not ask such questions.   

We thank Brenda Kay Richards for her piece and re-state our posit, 'Mitt Romney is visible for a reason. If Chris Christe dissolves into the Dinning Room of political RIP, Romney will reinvigorate and declare run for the 2016 nomination. 

Brenda Kay Richards and The Pardu recommend serious reflection and consideration of what you are about to see vs seeking "What life could have been laments from Ann Romney."






In December 2013, Ann Romney "went here." CNN

"We don't look back," Ann Romney said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer airing on the "Situation Room" Wednesday. "Neither one of us ever look back."

And there-in lies an indication of the problem with the Romneys. They are disingenuous.

GOP Trods-on With False Mantra And Talking Points

Brenda Kay Richards (Friend of the TPI and Guest writer)

In keeping with the GOP's single minded determination and pathetic desperation of tying everything negative in the whole of Universe to President Obama, former Secretary of State and possible democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and of course, Benghazi, checkout the new hilariously funny Republican talking point:  "
Governor Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie's brave and refreshing *candor* about "Bridgegate" shows how "presidential" he is."  
You couldn't make this ridiculous bullshiggity up, if you tried.

NJ governor's no-nonsense candor at Bridgegate press conference is everything Obama and Clinton...

'After eight years of President Obama, this guy is a breath of fresh air,' a GOP fundraiser told MailOnline. 'Even the tea partiers have to recognize that.'......
