    How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney
    by The Troubadour

    Marc Ambinder has a brief piece up at GQ entitled “How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney.” The piece begins with this delicious opening:

    At some point, early Wednesday morning, when Gov. Mitt Romney and family were tucked into bed, a quiet call went out on the radio channel used by his Secret Service agents: “Javelin, Jockey details, all posts, discontinue.”

    Of all the indignities involved in losing a presidential race, none is more stark than the sudden emptiness of your entourage. The Secret Service detail guarding Governor Romney since Feb 1. stood down quickly. He had ridden in a 15-car motorcade to the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston for his concession speech. He rode in a single-car motorcade back across the Charles River to Belmont. His son, Tagg, did the driving.

      Secret Service to Mitt…….”Deuces!”

    • Camille

      This was very telling because the Secret Service can hang around the candidate for up to a week.

      The fact that they jumped ship the very next morning says a lot. And it’s not good or flattering for the Romneys.

      Also I heard the Secret Service were already freaking out about having to provide service for a minimum of 30 Romneys had he won.

      But God took care of that too.

      I could not wait to see that smirk wiped off Romney, wife and sons faces, but the indignity of losing every apparatus that assisted in his phony “looking presidential” act, was the cherry on top of the delicious sundae.

    UN Envoy Susan Rice Is Top Candidate to Succeed Clinton
    By Indira A.R. Lakshmanan and Flavia Krause-Jackson – Nov 8, 2012 8:40 PM ET

    Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is emerging as the favored candidate to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, even with the political controversy over her remarks about the fatal Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

    Six current or former White House officials, who all spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said Rice remains close to President Barack Obama and shares many of his views on foreign policy. They emphasized that the president hasn’t made a final decision, and Clinton may remain in her post for some months into Obama’s second term.

    Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley and other officials said Obama’s first move will be choosing a successor to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. He also may need to find successors to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, the officials said.

      As soon as the GOP bitchassness rears its head on this we need to be FIRED UP AND READY TO GO. I want to see if the Professional Left will have her back on this because I already know this will be a fight. We need to engage Rev Al on this early to get folks ready blow up the congressional lines on this.

    • GN

      John Kerry would be excellent too.

      • goldenstar

        Apparently John Kerry does not have the allies/advocates as does Susan Rice.

        • GN

          Interesting (I know zip about the inner workings of the WH). I hope the best person rather than the most connected person gets the job, whomever that turns out to be.

      • Miranda

        Oh yes, I forgot about him. I want John Kerry to have some high up post for sure. He was a real “G” this election cycle.

      • Aquagranny911

        Yes he would but we would be losing an excellent Dem Senator with a lot of cred in Washington. I like the idea of Susan Rice better.

        Just my two pesos but I think it was a big mistake to pluck Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security. She was a powerful firewall here in AZ against the teapotty. 2010 in AZ would have been way different & there would have been no SB1070 plus I think we would have had a Dem governor now (Terry Goddard) instead of that evil bruja, Brewer. I think Kerry should stay in the Senate.

        This is just a really weird off the wall thought but what about old Billy Boy Clinton? He can glad hand with the best of them while twisting the knife. Probably his health wouldn’t hold up for it but this idea did give me a chuckle.

        • GN

          Excellent points! Such an embarrassment of riches, we as constituents really can’t lose with any of the names in circulation.

    Blaming Gingrich for Romney’s Loss

    Many Romney insiders blame Newt Gingrich’s attacks in the GOP primaries for Mitt Romney’s loss in the presidential election, Fortune reports.

    Said one consultant: “No one in the campaign believed that Republicans would attack business enterprise in a primary contest. That was, in hindsight, a big mistake.”

    Here is a message to people who worship the media: the president has not listened to their nonsense and he won reelection. What makes them think he will listen to them now? The Obama coalition does not give two shits about any of these media entities

    • qosine

      Yep.

    • GN

      They ran against him and lost. OFA is more persuasive to moderate voters than the beltway meda, which has lost even more credibility due to their lies about an ultra-tight horserace. I’m sure the WH will talk to any and everyone to get their message across, but the beltway pundits’ relevance and credibility with the American public has never been lower IMO.

      • Aquagranny911

        Co-Sign!!! I’ve been boycotting most of them for ages & will continue to do so. The only reason I know what any of them say is because of some of our brave posters here at POU listen to & call out their caca.

    • TyrenM

      “the president has not listened to their nonsense and he won reelection.”

      LOD spoke on this talking to new Senators. Fuck the beltway media, keep up with your local reporters. I like that.

  • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

    Oh, this is VERY interesting. I bet Dems wish they hadn’t done this:

    They may also reverse what many see as an error in 2008: keeping “Organizing for America,” as the successor to that first campaign was known, on the sidelines. After their historic victory, Obama aides recognized that they had amassed a heap of political capital in the form of millions of e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers of marginal or swing voters, as well as an army of loyal volunteers and staffers. At one point in 2009, the group mobilized hundreds of thousands of calls to Congress to pass health care reform, inundating the switchboard.

    But the White House quickly sidelined the organization at the request of congressional leaders, who resented the president’s early attempts to apply pressure on them inside their own districts. And Obama campaign aides also privately acknowledged that supporters weren’t as engaged as they would have liked in the group “because of the Jesus effect”: the belief that Obama’s election would magically solve all problems.

    I would LOVE to know who these congressional leaders were. I bet one of them was Russ Feingold.

    • Miranda

      OFA would have been the perfect antidote to the foolish tea party mess. Wuss ass “sensitive” Dems in congress are as much to blame as emprogs and the Professional Left for 2010.

    • Camille

      I despise most of these folks. I do not want to be on the same team with them ever again.

      Once President Obama completes his second term, I’m so done.

      • AxelFoley

        This can’t be repeated enough.

    • JojoRaze

      Diane Feinstein was one. I remember after the first election PBO told people to call Congress for something and Feinstein was upset that folks were in her hallway screaming at her to do something.

    - — -Gallup: Gender Gap In 2012 The Largest In Its History

    —-In Gallup’s final pre-election poll earlier this week, President Barack Obama led among women voters by 12 points while Mitt Romney held an 8-point edge among men.

    That, according to the national research organization, created the largest gender gap “since it began compiling the vote by major subgroups in 1952.” The chart below, courtesy of Gallup, illustrates how the gender gap in this year’s campaign stacks up historically.
    — – SNIP – –

    Notably, Obama’s 12-percentage-point advantage among women is slightly less than the 14-point advantage he had over John McCain in 2008, while Romney improved on McCain’s performance among men by eight points. Thus, the narrowing of Obama’s winning margin between the two elections, from seven points to two points, can be ascribed mainly to men’s shifting more Republican.

    John Cassidy, in the New Yorker, on “A Victory for Obama and Obama’s America“:

    … For the fifth time in the past six Presidential elections, the Democrats have won the popular vote. For the second time in succession, Americans have elected a black man as President. Throughout the country, Republican extremists like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock have been repudiated. Residents of Maryland and Maine (and probably Washington state, too) have voted in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage. The United States of 2012 hasn’t turned into Scandinavia, but it isn’t the United States of 2010 and the Tea Party either. To the extent that the election was about anything more than negative advertising and relentless micro-targeting, it was a triumph of moderation over extremism, tolerance over intolerance, and the polyglot future over the monochrome past…

    Though the day-to-day exchanges were often trivial, the underlying dynamics of the election were deadly serious, and everybody knew what they were. As both candidates repeatedly said, it was about what sort of country we want to be. Now the American public has rendered a judgement. By a small but significant majority, it has rejected the insular, backward-looking, feed-the-rich, extremism of today’s G.O.P., even when that extremism has a standard bearer who is relatively moderate—or, at least, flexible. It has reëlected to office a President who, for all his failings, tried during his first term to address some of the biggest problems facing the country, and did so in a spirit of pragmatism and civility that the Mitt Romney who governed Massachusetts would have appreciated.

    More rancor and gridlock may well lie ahead. But yesterday the right side won.

      Sorry, but these attempts at presenting Mitt Romney as a one time honorable moderate is so bogus. The people of Massachusetts know better and have said so.

      Jake Tapper is the same one who on the eve of the first debate, circulated an old, public speech by President Obama and claimed that PBO’s southern diction was evidence of a blackety black black black code talk.

      IMO Tapper is a not so closeted regressive, as well as a thin-skinned infotainer who will block non-sycophants who call him on his bs on twitter.

      And on Tuesday night, this asshat was ethered alongside others in the beltway media. President Barack “TwoTermz” Obama can do whatever the fuck he wants to do; he saved this country from a Depression. I hope that he’s enjoying some wonderful, restful, mellow days with his beautiful family after working so hard to help this country make the right choice during the elections.

    Racist Teens Forced to Answer for Tweets About the ‘Nigger’ President

    There was an abundance of hate speech on Twitter after Obama’s reelection, with people hurling violent and racial epithets. Many of those tweeters were teenagers whose public Twitter accounts feature their real names and advertise their participation in the sports programs at their respective high schools. Calls were placed to the principals and superintendents of those schools to find out how calling the president—or any person of color, for that matter—a “nigger” and a “monkey” jibes with their student conduct code of ethics.

    We contacted their school’s administrators with the hope that, if their educators were made aware of their students’ ignorance, perhaps they could teach them about racial sensitivity. Or they could let them know that while the First Amendment protects their freedom of speech, it doesn’t protect them from the consequences that might result from expressing their opinions. (For example, an adult woman is currently being investigated by the Secret Service for calling President Obama a “nigger” and suggesting he be assassinated on her Facebook page.)

    Additionally, several of the teens use imagery of their high schools’ sports teams on their Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. If nothing else, it’s reasonable to alert administrators to the behavior of the students who are publicly representing their schools.

    found this in the comments at Balloon Juice:

    the Conster Says:

    My takeaway after reading all of the delicious schadenfreude conservative postmortems is the dawning reality that they lost not just the election fair and square, but the argument. There’s no real place to go for them now, because they didn’t lose with Gore style shenanigans that would give them the victim mentality they’re so good at exploiting. Obama ran on pro-choice, gay marriage, tax increases and healthcare, so people knew what they were voting for, and just told all the old white men, you’re not the boss of me.

    Obama’s newser

    President Obama reaffirmed his commitment to fiscal balance while splendidly applying some intense heat on the GOP House. He said he was open to “compromise” and “new ideas”–two concepts vigorously rejected by tiresome tea partiers–and he reiterated the electorate’s recent demand: “cooperation, consensus, and common sense.” You will note in this C triad the pregnant omission of John Boehner’s “common ground,” which has become famously synonymous with GOP entrenchment.

    Perhaps the highlight of Obama’s news conference was his repetition of “I will not, will not” reduce the deficit the Republican way, and by that he meant, of course, piling more burdens on the backs of those least able to bear the load. Obama’s kicker, the highlight of the highlight: The electorate just ratified this choice. A delicious moment.

    What’s more, Obama reminded that electorate that Damocles’ sword awaits us. Congress can do nothing, and watch everyone’s taxes go up, or it can follow the dictates of Election Day and simply reimpose Clinton’s rate on upper-income taxpayers. This, Obama more than merely implied, is the House GOP’s choice.

    So do get back to us, won’t you, dear Republicans

    Headscratching, Part II

    Speaking of cluelessness:

    “We didn’t think they’d turn out more of their [African-American] base vote than they did in 2008, but they smoked us,” said one Romney operative. “It’s unbelievable that that they turned out more from the African-American community than in 2008. Somehow they got ‘em to vote.”

    Tuskegee Airman Herbert Carter dead at 95
    by Ugonna Okpalaoka | November 9, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    Retired Lt. Col. Herbert Carter, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen, died Thursday at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, according to Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford. He was 95 years old.

    Montgomery Advertiser reports that Carter was one of only four from the original group of 33 fighter pilots still alive. He was also one of the most vocal about the legacy of the African-American World War II pilots. They’ve been credited for their instrumental part in not only breaking down racial walls in the military, but helping to win the war. Their mission was to protect bombers as they tried to attack enemy troops.

        Jake Tapper *is* taking Romney’s loss personally. I have never seen Jake Tapper work so hard to protect and elevate a politician.

        The thing about the Jake Tapper’s and Chuck Todd’s is that their blatant racial resentment and racial contempt of the brilliant, dignified black man who occupies the White House has only returned with a vengeance and an increased hostility especially with the President’s effortless humiliation of their great white hope – Romney.

        Jake Tapper and Chuck Todd did their part in the making of a Romney presidency that will never be.

        Where Jake Tapper and Chuck Todd continue to *demand* things from President Obama, they treated the Romney campaign with such undeserved respect.

        Deferring to and simply accepting Romney on everything – unreleased taxes, lack of access to media and when rare interviews were offered ground rules set including what not to ask, taking every blatant Romney generated lie on it’s face and leaving conveniently unchecked – no fact checking, no snark or disrespect in speaking to or about Romney, his wife or family, no desire to upset the Romney’s in any way.

        Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd and the rest of the Romney for white president crowd will in the end be treated to a well-deserved Karma hug.

    - — War On Women Continues: Ohio Revives Extreme Anti-Abortion Bill- -

    — -Last year, anti-choice advocates in Ohio pushed extreme legislation to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected — which often occurs as early as six weeks, before many women may even know they’re pregnant. So-called “heartbeat” bills like HB 125 are so radical that they often divide the anti-abortion community, and this particular legislation has been stalled in the Ohio Senate since June 2011.

    But now, thanks to significant pressure from the anti-choice groups who were the biggest proponents of the heartbeat bill last year, HB 125 may be up again for consideration in Ohio’s Senate as early as next week:

    Mired in the Ohio Senate since June 2011, HB 125 is getting another look, Senate President Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond, told The Enquirer Thursday. He said a substitute bill is being prepared. [...]

    - – - -SNIP – –

    Update

    The heartbeat bill isn’t the only anti-choice measure up for consideration in Ohio next week. A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Ohio notes that the Ohio House Health Committee has also scheduled a vote next week on a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood clinics in the state.

    Allen West-Patrick Murphy update: Judge denies request to impound voting machines, count ballots

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A Palm Beach County Circuit Court judge has denied a request by U.S. Rep. Allen West to impound voting machines and recount ballots after election results showed his bid for the 18th Congressional district was headed for possible defeat.

    The election results, which had not been certified by supervisors of elections in Martin, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties as of Friday afternoon, showed Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy had about 2,400 more votes than West — more than the one half of one percent required to trigger an automatic recount.

    Zane Tankel, Applebee’s Franchisee, Says He Won’t Hire Because Of Obamacare (VIDEO)
    Posted: 11/09/2012 10:37 am EST Updated: 11/09/2012 12:02 pm EST

    An Applebee’s New York area franchisee is the latest CEO to go public threatening drastic plans to avoid costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

    “We’ve calculated it will [cost] some millions of dollars across our system. So what does that say — that says we won’t build more restaurants. We won’t hire more people,” Zane Tankel, chairman and CEO of Apple-Metro, told Fox Business Network on Thursday.

    Apple-Metro, which runs 40 Applebee’s restaurants, employs from 80 to 300 people at each of its locations. Obamacare mandates that businesses with more than 50 workers must offer an approved insurance plan or pay a penalty of $2,000 for each full-time worker over 30 workers.

    [...] Darden Restaurants, owner of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, said that it would increase the number of part-time workers to skirt the law, while Jimmy John Liautaud, founder of Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches chain, also recently told Fox Business News that he is considering cutting workers’ hours.

    Voting Rights Act Challenge Gets U.S. High Court Hearing
    By Greg Stohr – Nov 9, 2012 3:13 PM ET

    The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider overturning a core part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, taking up a racially and politically charged challenge to one of the signal achievements of the civil rights movement.

    The justices today said they will hear arguments that the law’s “preclearance” provision, which requires all or parts of 16 mostly Southern states to get federal approval before changing their voting rules, is no longer warranted.

    Along with a clash over university affirmative action, the case makes this court term a potential watershed for the legal rules governing race. Chief Justice John Roberts has questioned the constitutionality of the preclearance rule, which the Obama administration used this year to stop Republican-backed voter- identification laws in Texas and South Carolina from going into effect.

      Could I just bring out my big cactus and push them on it? I’m concerned that if I put on my boots & tried to kick someone I might fall on my own ass instead. I’m not as steady on my feet as I once was, lol.

    Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus

    - –Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”

    So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

    It would have been a presidential decision.

      I think the ‘extramarital affair’ is bullshit. I think he just didn’t want to testify about Bengazi. Then again, what’s to keep him from testifying even if he resigned?

      • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

        Resigning doesn’t prevent the Senate Intelligence Committee from calling him to testify.

      • lamh36

        I think the affair was real. the FBI had an investigation opened because his biographer, the alleged mistress, tried to acces Petraeus email and could have been able to see confidential information.

    • GN

      I couldn’t agree more; it’s all about the parents. Kids that age are simply repeating what they hear at home and parroting statements that they are used to receiving approval for. 100% indictment of their parents.

    Romney ‘Shellshocked’? Naw, That’s Just The White Privilege Gas Face

    Even in defeat, Mitt Romney and the GOP still reek of unmitigated White privileged.

    Somehow, Romney, his team and the rest of GOP thought that they had the election so in the bag–and in their pockets: GOP candidate outspent Obama during the campaign–that the governor “was shellshocked” over his defeat, according to an aide interviewed by CBS News.

    Fauxgressives have no idea how much ground they’ve lost.

    And Now It Starts Again from the Left

    [video of Cenk Ugyar and Alan Grayson talking smack]

    …So I really can’t explain Alan Grayson’s misinformation, except to wonder if it’s nothing more than sour grapes.

    This is the President’s second term. He’s got nothing left to prove to anyone like Grayson and less to prove to the Professional Left. Grayson would be wise to refrain from all the extracurricular television activity he enjoyed before and stick to representing his constituents. And let the President get on with governing the country.

    • Aquagranny911

      I wonder if Grayson’s big head is actually filled with the idea he could run for prez in 2016?

      • GN

        lmao Grayson would be curbstomped; I love my POTUS but seeing him in action, he will not hesitate to clear the Democratic field for whomever he thinks can carry on OFA’s work in 2016.

        • qosine

          Yes. I can imagine what PBO thinks of Grayson. lol He doesn’t.

        • Aquagranny911

          “Grayson would be curbstomped”

          I know this is evil but if DK got behind that caca I would really laugh because I got this vision of one of those roller trucks that tamp down the tar in a new road taking them all down.

          Grayson has a huge ego so we will see. Could be fun for days.

        • qosine

          Rafalca could help.

          PBO: Racalfa, how many stomps for Grayson?
          Ralfalca:
          PBO: OK, no stomp of confidence. Next.

      Alan Grayson better step the fuck back. He is only back in the House because of the President.

      We won’t let him pee on the coattails he road in on again.
