I found it sad that Mitt Romney, in giving such a nice concession speech and departing with grace, should then resort to assigning blame as to why he didn't win the election.

I myself have made some big mistakes in my life but I have always simply looked in the mirror. I tried to teach my children to find the answer why instead of shifting the blame where it doesn't belong.

My fellow Americans have shown the world we are not stupid in re-electing a very capable man, and a black man yet, of representing our great country.
