This is really an opportunity for Governor Romney to thank all his supporters and friends.

He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to … run. If he could have found someone else to take his place … he would have been ecstatic to step aside. He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.
Tagg Romney • Discussing his father Mitt, who he had to convince with his mother, Ann, to run for president. Tagg made the comment in a long post-mortem article written by the Boston Globe’s Michael Kranish, which pinpoints what, exactly, happened. The biggest problem, according to the Globe report? The campaign did very little to focus on Romney’s personal and leadership strengths — and Obama’s campaign was much better at reaching individual voters than Romney’s. A great Sunday morning read.

I always hate this kind of scapegoating after elections. I mean, when you lose, you lost. Someone asked me the other day, ‘Why did Mitt Romney lose?’ Because he got less votes than Barack Obama. That’s why.
NJ Gov. Chris Christie • Discussing his displeasure with the mental gymnastics that both parties frequently display, after losing an election, in an interview with Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’. Gov. Christie has become the most recent prominent Republican to publicly dismiss Mitt Romney’s theory that “gifts” won President Obama the election, though he’s far from the only one to do so. source

Prominent Republicans respond to Mitt Romney’s “gifts” comments

  • Gov. BranstadI don’t think it’s helpful. I guess my feeling is that we need to turn the page, and we need to focus on the future and not make excuses for the past.”
  • Gov. Jindal "We need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong."
  • Gov. ScottIt’s wrong, it’s not true. What we’ve got to do is say we want every vote, we want to take care of every citizen in our state”
  • Sen. RubioI don’t believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don’t want to work. I’m not saying that’s what [Romney] said. I think we have millions of people in this country that are out of work and are dependent on the government because they can’t find a job.” 
  • Sen. AyotteThe campaign is over and what the voters are looking for us to do is to accept their votes and go forward and we’ve got some big challenges that need to be solved. I don’t know the full context of them but I don’t agree with them.” source

Reactions to the election: Conservative edition

  • Sen. John Cornyn ”[W]e have a period of reflection and recalibration ahead for the Republican Party.  While some will want to blame one wing of the party over the other, the reality is candidates from all corners of our GOP lost tonight.” source
  • Matt Lewis ”It is the job of politicians and parties and movements to persuade Americans to buy into their vision. And they clearly aren’t buying what Republicans are selling. It’s time for the GOP to do some serious soul searching…The GOP shouldn’t abandon its core principles, but it’s time for some reinvention. An obvious place to start is with demographics. For example, as I have long advocated, Republicans simply must find a way to appeal to Hispanics.” source
  • David Frum ”Any idea that the immigration issue - and the immigration issue alone - would enable Republicans to staple a good chunk of the Latino vote to the conservative coalition - without changing anything else - is a dangerous self-deception…the crying need in the GOP is for a more middle-class orientation to politics, one that addresses concerns like healthcare as well as debts and deficits. But the ideas that dominated the past four years won’t become more attractive if all conservatives do is translate them into Spanish.” source
  • Erick Erickson "The GOP spent a ton of money through a bunch of organizations, including Super PACs, that was flat out wasted. The Newt Gingrich Super PAC was just a sign of things to come it seems…There must be a reckoning for how the GOP does business with groups that fundraise off the names of politicians and use all the money for overhead that includes luxurious travel and hotels." source
