article imageRomney to Conservatives: Sorry I won't be your president

By Paul Iddon     Mar 16, 2013 in Politics
In his first public speech since election night Mitt Romney told a gathering of conservatives in the United States that he was "sorry that I won't be your president."
The former contender for the highest office in the United States continued to tell the conglomerate of the Conservative Political Action Conference that he would be their co-worker and would "stand shoulder to shoulder" with them and added that, "Each of us in our own way will have to step up and meet our responsibility."
He was greeted enthusiastically at this meeting which was made clear by the several interruptions from bursts of applause he got during the course of the brief remarks he gave. His appearance seems to have been one made in order to thanks conservatives for having backed him as a candidate for president. (NBC Bay Area, March 15 2013)
Among his brief remarks he stated that, "As someone who just lost the last election, I'm probably not the best person to chart the course for the next election."
He also issued the following warning to the conservative conglomeration saying that, "We particularly need to hear from the governors of the blue and purple states," he said clearly indicating to present conservatives and indeed conservatives everywhere that they must not give up on the states he lost to Obama in the 2012 campaign.
He also said that, "It's fashionable in some circles to be pessimistic about America, about conservative solutions, about the Republican Party. I utterly reject that pessimism."
Mr. Romney vanished from the public limelight after his defeat on November 7. He was the first losing presidential candidate in a quarter of a century not to be present in the American capital on Inauguration Day. (Reuters, March 15 2013)
