Famous Last Words

President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are pictured in the Oval Office, Nov. 29, 2012.

What does one say on such an occasion?

“Would you care for some dog?”

“Yes, it was actually Kenya. Now I’ll have to kill you.”

“Wanna’ see some amazing Area 51 photos?”

“Why don’t you buy yourself an island and become their president?”

“We were looking for a good nuclear waste dump and, guess what, Utah’s name came up.”

“I could really use your clout in negotiating with the Republicans…”

That last one would probably sting the worst. Unlike senator McCain, who kept his day job back in 2008, Romney is just going to have to retire with nothing to his name other than $300 million, give or take.

And he doesn’t even drink or smoke. I can’t believe only 30% of the Jews voted for him. What’s wrong with you, people?

Meanwhile, President Obama will be preparing to go after Netanyahu for the expansion of Jerusalem all the way to Maale Adumim, virtually scrapping the idea of a contiguous Palestinian state.

“Care for some dog?”

    Romney would have stopped that ridiculous UN non-observer status bid… too bad. Such a loss, Romey would be a much much better president of the U.S.

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    willard does not know anything about foreign policy and could not have stopped the palistinian vote. It was not like it was a close vote and he could have bribed a country or two. Remember, the U.S. was against the vote and willard said he supported Obama's foreign policy!

  3. Henri Korn says:

    Neither Romney nor Obama are Israel's solution, only Israel is. Am Yisrael Chai.

    Romney should have chosen Ileana Ros-Lehtinen as his running mate. Maybe he would have captured more of the woman's vote and the Hispanic vote, and he could have let her handle foreign policy. The bottom line, though, is that Obama stole the election via fraud, and no Republicans have challenged it. That's what's really sickening.
