IN non-democratic countries, it is usually the case if the loser refuses not to appear at the inauguration of the winners, his loser support takes it as their leader is not fully accepting the outcome.

I am not accusing Romney of doing that here, but it is bad sport that he has not recovered from his loss.
Let the man stay home. The sooner he disappears from the public eye, the better.

sore loser = typical Republican

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Right.
He really did not have to say that... unless he wanted to make a point

You seem to think these politicians ego is so easy to bruise it needs protecting.
meant more to whom? the opposition party leaders are there, the supreme court justices are there, there's no question about his legitimacy. clearly you're just sad he stayed out of the limelight so you can't take more potshots at him. (e.g. the loser's gallery in kansas) this transition of power nonsense couldn't be more transparent if you tried.

You have been here long enough to know righty and lefty websites do this all the times.
Some righty website still believe Obama is illegitimate president, he was not borne here, he won because he suppresed the vote.

These websites are now part of American political landscape, and you cannot credibly make the case that this the monopoly of the left.
The earlier you get used to them ( and not be sensitive), the better off you'll.
Imagine if you were a liberal and saw the images purpoted to be Obama that were in Tea Party demonstrations. Gorilla, African witch doctor, Mao, Stalling Mussolini, Hitler. You would have lost interest in politicis by now.
I am sure you have heard of The Drugde Reports, The Blaze, NewsMax, RedState, Breitbart, Dikck Morris, Michelle Malkin, .. and of course FOXNews.

As the inauguration was in progress, FOXNews was already criticizing Obama, they even fail to show some of the very importnat optics of the inauguration, namely the parade where diversity abound with flotial including, chinese american community group, Gay Americans, Hispanic Americans, Hawaians.

This all ties in the theme of equal, civil rights Obama talked about in his speech.
Prior to the parade, the president has mentioned Stonewall in an inaugural speech, the first time it was ever done in an inagural.
Plantman should be grateful to the president for this.
blah blah blah. as if fox news would suddenly become angels if romney was there

the basic point is that nothing good could come of romney being there since obama had a glorious inauguration without him. the media and public (mostly, except some hangers ons like you) hasn't talked about him/his humiliating loss in weeks and he wants to keep it that way. let the man live his life in peace.

He has done plenty already.
  1. Saved our auto industry, it may not be important over in England, but it is to us. Ford, Chrysler, GM are part of our identity as an industrial nation.
  2. Saved the economy which was on the brink of disaster when he took office
  3. Dow went from 7900 to 13000
  4. Unemployment rate is now under 8.00 and improving
  5. Irak war ended
  6. Afghanistan war will be ending soon
  7. If you listen to the speech yesterday and you are a gay person, you will be pleased that your rights have now elevated at the same level as the rest of American who took those reight for granted. Added to that invoking Seneca fall, the invokation of Selma, Seneca Fall and Stonewall was not lots on any Americans who care about equality and civil rights for ALL Americans. The speech was LBJ and MLK at the same time.
  8. There greater awareness that the middle cass is more important to the health of a country.
I probably left many more accomplishments

An aide to Mitt Romney said it was 'doubtful' that the Massachusetts Governor and his wife, Anne, watched President Obama’s inauguration on television. While Romney had 'no big plans' for the weekend, a Kansas bank planned to hang his portrait in its ‘They Also Ran Gallery’ on Tuesday.

After losing the 2012 election, Mitt Romney went to Disneyland, but as President Obama took his oath of office this weekend and celebrated his second inauguration, the former Massachusetts Governor had “no big plans.”
Rather than travel to Washington for the inauguration of his campaign rival, Romney spent the weekend at his home in La Jolla, Calif., NBC News reported.

Asked whether Romney and his wife, Anne, planned to watch coverage of the festivities in the nation's capital, an aide said it was “doubtful.”
Since his electoral college drubbing, Romney has largely kept out of the public eye, but his former running mate, Paul Ryan, took the opportunity on Monday to congratulate Obama on his reelection.
do you bother to read what you post and bold?

I see that, but an aide would not have made such statement unless communicated to her/him and tacitly approved by the governor.
No need to be feisty about it.

Sees as though Romney isn't the only one not over the defeat yet.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

"doubtful" is not a statement.

Re: Romney Had Own Inaugural; but Failed To Show

I was listening to MSNBC on the radio and they mentioned he had announced that he not only would not be attending, but that he'd not be watching. Might be a load of crap, maybe it's just the aide's statement, but he seems to have taken an immature snot stance since the election.

You just don't know how pleased I am to finally be able to agree with you. "Let the man live his life in peace" and outside of the spotlight, same as I wished of Mrs. Palin following the '08 election.
