You thought Biden made gaffes

Romney 'transition' website briefly appears online

Mitt Romney told reporters aboard his plane on Tuesday afternoon that he had prepared an 1,118-word "victory speech" to give supporters on election night. And it appears the Romney campaign was preparing a website for his transition from candidate to president, too.

He counted the words before a victory?...Don't count your chickens before they hatch?

He didn't win

How much longer should you and others continue to lay on the flail? Do people need to follow him to his grave just to make sure he won't be back? Time to move on, I'd say. In fact, I believe you've also used those words.

Tell your "friends" people of the same ilk...Romney supporters

Obama WON...Tell your "friends" people of the same ilk...Romney supporters

So if someone picks on Obama, your defensive response
by Steven Haninger / November 9, 2012 7:17 AM PST

is to attack Romney? If you like your neighbor to the north and dislike your neighbor to the south, do you attack that southern neighbor if someone attacks the northern one? Think about how stupid that would be.

Romney is out of the picture. I'm glad he ran and I'm very happy with how he conducted his campaign. We'll never know if he'd have been a successful president but, IMO, he brought honor to the campaign trail that hasn't been seen by Rep or Dem in quite some time. If you don't like that someone picks on Obama, why not take it out on Obama's attacker rather than on Obama's former competitor. That makes more sense to me.

Some here would call THAT a personal attack.

Just a technical error

I really don't see anything wrong with them having a victory page ready to post if he had won. And of course he had a victory speech written; why wouldn't he?

I see the victory webpage as a human error/gaffe
