    Mitt Romney 'would be willing to work for Barack Obama'

    Mitt Romney 'would be willing to work for Barack Obama'

    Mitt Romney would be willing to work in Barack Obama's administration despite being defeated in their battle for the presidency, according to one of his closest friends.

    The possibility of Mr Romney being offered a government job or task-force during a second Obama term was raised by the president in his victory speech on Tuesday night.

    "I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward," Mr Obama said.

    Grant Bennett, who served alongside Mr Romney as a Mormon bishop in Massachusetts, said that his friend would never run for office again but could well be persuaded back into public service.

    "If Mitt were invited by the president, he would say 'I'm an American. Can I contribute?," Mr Bennett told The Daily Telegraph. "Mitt's fundamental motivation is to make a difference for good".

    Such a move would be likely to enrage Republican colleagues determined to block Mr Obama from implementing his plans. Alex Castellanos, a prominent Republican strategist, described Mr Obama's gesture to Mr Romney as "incredibly generous, but also incredibly smart politics".

    Devastated by the failure of his six-year quest for the US presidency, Mr Romney is expected initially to retreat to his $12 million beach-side home in La Jolla, California, and to spend time with his five sons and 18 grandchildren.

    But Mr Bennett said that at 65, the former Massachusetts governor "has enormous energy and is in great health" - and that after a break with his grandchildren, he would certainly not be retiring altogether.

    However he said that Mr Romney, who has a $250 million (£160 million) fortune, was "not at this stage concerned about money", and could devote himself to charity work rather than the private sector.

    Mr Romney's wife, Ann, brushed off suggestions that he had been tempted by lucrative jobs in finance after losing his first run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. "We're used to kind of passing offers up like that," Mrs Romney said of a $30-million-a-year role.

    Yet a former senior aide to Mr Romney's father, George, struggled to identify a cause with which Mitt Romney might associate himself, especially after dismissing poorer voters as government-dependent "victims" in secretly-recorded remarks released during his campaign.

    "George Romney always associated himself with the so-called '47 per cent'," Walt DeVries told The Daily Telegraph. "Mitt was born in the 53 per cent, and only left that group physically, financially and ideologically to move into the upper one or two per cent".

    Having been defeated by Richard Nixon for the Republican presidential nomination in 1968, George Romney – who was Mitt's hero and mentor – served in Mr Nixon's cabinet as housing and urban development secretary.

    Mr Bennett suggested that Mr Romney may return to a position in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, to which he has continued donating millions of dollars from his investment income.

    "Mitt's high profile has provided a great opportunity for the Church to dispel lots of misconceptions about us Mormons," he said. "And I'm sure he could continue to do that".
    Mr Romney rose to become a senior bishop in the Massachusetts Mormon church while working as a private equity executive at Bain Capital in the 1980s and 1990s.

    Data Points To A Powerful Romney Campaign – And Yet…He Lost.

    by Ulsterman on November 7, 2012 with 57 Comments in News

    Received this link from Insider this afternoon and told to look it over carefully. They remain completely confounded as to how the reported #s and final results appear to directly conflict with data such as appears in this link. THIS DATA IS IMPORTANT SO PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO REVIEW IT AS WELL.
    Here is a brief summary of just how well Mitt Romney did in shifting voters toward him in 2012 versus what took place in 2008:



    Barack Obama
    netted FEWER Democrat votes in 2012 than were cast in 2008 by 3% points.


    Mitt Romney
    earned MORE Republican votes in 2012 than were cast in 2008 by 3% points.

    Barack Obama earned FEWER Black votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.

    Mitt Romney by the way, earned MORE Black votes in 2012 than were cast for the Republican in 2008.

    Mitt Romney earned MORE votes from both married men and married woman than were cast for Republicans in 2008, while also improving support among non-married men and woman by 2% from 2008 as well.

    Mitt Romney earned MORE votes among liberals, moderates, and conservatives than were cast for the Republican candidate in 2008 – in fact, this improvement was by a full 7% over 2008 – a very significant improvement.

    Mitt Romney earned more votes from Protestants, Catholics, and Jews than the Republican nominee received in 2008, including a 9-point improvement among Jewish voters alone.

    The two top issues according to voters were the economy and the budget. Mitt Romney earned A 38 POINT ADVANTAGE OVER BARACK OBAMA on the top two issues of the election – and yet Romney was somehow defeated.

    Lastly, regarding the following three personal trait issues – strong leader, shares my values, and has a vision for the future, Mitt Romney DOMINATED Barack Obama among 2012 voters by 45 points. And lost the election.

    Here is the link to the data via the Washington Post. It is stunning, some might even say inconceivable, that a candidate improves in such categories as overall votes among Whites AND minorities, is ranked far ahead of their opponent in both the top two concerns among voters, as well as the three most important personal trait issues – and still loses the election.

    That is exactly what happened last night. Somehow, someway…that is what happened to Mitt Romney – and to all who supported him.

    See link below
    – and the dramatic shift in Republicans’ favor in 2012 vs 2008. A shift the resulted in a confounding loss that remains dubious at best…

    IMO with a growing corrupt voting system and an extreme left press I doubt a fair election is possible for a presidential race,add that to an apathetic electorate and anything can happen, we look like a third world country more each election cycle.

    Well, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama both work for the same mega campaign donors it would not be a stretch for them to appear to work together on say... Amnesty for illegal aliens?
