    Default Mitt Romney Reflects On Election Loss In First TV Interview Since Then

    WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney said Sunday that until late into the evening on Election Day 2012, he thought he was going to win the presidency.

    "By 8 or 9 o'clock, it was clear that we were not going to win," Romney told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."

    In his first television interview since that loss, Romney reflected on almost all facets of the campaign, not just the night the White House slipped from his grasp. Below, some other takeaways from the interview:

    Asked about the "47 percent" video that helped sink his presidential candidacy, Mitt said he'd been misunderstood. "It was a very unfortunate statement that I made," he said. "It's not what I meant ... What I said is not what I believe." He also acknowledged the toll it took on his candidacy: "That hurt, there is no question that hurt and did some real damage to my campaign."

    Actually, that is something my wife said about him all the time. She worked for Mittens in 2002 during the Olympics. Her opinion of him never changed from then until now. She said he had an "better than you" attitude about him.

    Why not get off your duff and rag on your sorry assed representatives? Those worthless bums haven't earned their keep for decades. Besides, we all know this is Bush's fault....Right? No one wanted to elect another righty after his documented lies, thievery, and disasters. Bush effectively sealed any Republican'ts fate

    Well spoken ... but I am sure those who berate and ridicule Obama say it's all his fault.

    I'm no fan of Bush or Romney but I'm definitely no fan of Obama and if there ever was a theiving liar heading this country to disaster It's him. I'm lost on the first part of your post about reps?????
