I think Hillary Clinton, if she becomes the nominee, will have plenty to discuss about her own record. I don’t imagine that Bill Clinton is going to be a big part of it.
Mitt Romney • Saying what should be obvious human courtesy—that Hillary Clinton probably shouldn’t be attacked during her potential presidential campaign because her husband cheated on her nearly two decades ago. Expect such attacks anyway, because people are jerks.

Stuff you may have missed: January 18, 2014

The ESPN-owned site Grantland has a problem on its hands. This week, they published a story about a golf putter, but the story’s writer effectively badgered, then outed the inventor of the putter as transgender. The person committed suicide before the story published, a fact that’s led to a major backlash. Should the author have let the story go?

When the FBI tried to arrest Ross Ulbricht, the alleged founder of the illicit Silk Road Bitcoin marketplace, the agency’s main initiative was to prevent Ulbricht from shutting his laptop.

Exact quote from Mitt Romney on whether he plans to run in 2016: “Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no.”

Twitter apparently suspended Hamas’ Twitter account over terms of service issues.

Thieves in California are stealing nuts by the literal truckload.

Apparently, leftover campaign shirts from Mitt Romney’s presidential run are being put to good use in Kenya. Philanthropist Cyndy Waters founded a charity, The Orbit Village Project, that provides clothes and housing to impoverished Kenyans, and it just so happens that Waters’ nephew worked for Romney’s campaign last year. After the election, the nephew had a bunch of shirts left over, and so Waters gave them to the Kenyan kids. “It was a big deal that they could pick between short or long sleeved and blue and white,” Waters said. “For an African youth from such an impoverished area to pick out something new is very rare.” (Image credit: Orbit Village Project) source

But the negotiations collapsed in acrimony because Gingrich and Santorum could not agree on who would get to be president. ‘In the end,’ Gingrich says, ‘it was just too hard to negotiate.’

Bloomberg Businessweek has a story about how Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich nearly ran for president together on a quote-unquote “Unity” ticket. 

Hope that second to pick yourself up from fainting helped.

I am sorry that I will not be your president – but I will be your co-worker and I will work shoulder to shoulder alongside you. In the end, we’ll win for the same reason we’ve won before because our cause is just and it is right.
Mitt Romney, speaking at CPAC today. While he was respectfully received by the crowd, Politico writes that “indifference pervaded the halls” prior to his speech. source

“I’ll look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there,” Mitt  Romney said of the ongoing sequestration battles in Washington. “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation. The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads.”

Buck up, old fella. You’re sounding a little depressed these days. You know, there’s this thing called thought leadership that you could try. That’s what Rush and Palin try to do.

Heard there was going to be a sequester. Got prepared at CVS.

As a former Honey Nut Cheerios junkie I’ve never felt more closely aligned to Mitt Romney, the real Mitt Romney we’re only just now discovering

The trees are the right height.

Everyone knows that Honey Nut Cheerios are more expensive at CVS than they are at the grocery store. Mitt just doesn’t care. I admire that.

In case you were wondering what Mitt’s been up to since the election, Fox News did an interview with him. here’s a sample, above. ”We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends,” he told a captive Chris Wallace. “And then you get off. And it’s not like, oh, can’t we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It’s like, no, the ride’s over.” The full interview hits Sunday.
