    He should join forces with the winner and contribute his own quota towards the development of the economy of the United States. We from other developing countries are looking up to America for clues to develop.

    Those ideas Romney had during his campaign, he should merge them with those of Obama's and profer solutions to the ailing economy of America. I just hope Obama will accept them. I know at least they do agree on some things, so there should be a meeting point.

      I agree but this time round Mitt better have specifics. But Mitt isn't needed so much as Congress getting their act together and stop all the childish, non-accomplishing partisan politics and work towards the common good. If Mitt would have won the election and faced a Democrat controlled Senate and a House with a slight majority as it is now he would have found out that maybe it's wasn't such a good idea of running for POTUS.

    A candidate who has lost election should go back to his/her business . Package memos of ideas to benefit the people and country should be offered as at when neede to winner/serving candidate for implementation. Nobody has monopoly of wisdon to manage the state.

      really so you want his idea but not his idea with him as president? We had a chance and liberals blew it, they are going to suffer for their vote and so will we. They think obama is so great they are going to find out the truth.

      When the country goes down the tubes, there is no one to blame but the democrat in power, this is great because it is going to end the democrat party. Obama can not blame the previous administration now.

      The liberal media did not report a lot of things, a lot was suppressed.

        You comment alot of anti Obama. How about a congress that works together for once Obama only pushed whqt he wanted through while your oh so precious republicans bicker with demos instead of working on gettin this country going. Its both parties fault and Romney wouldnt of been able to work with others just like it is now. Our countries run by a bunch of overpaid cry babies who care only about the peoples pockets who put them in power. Romney and Obama both are idiots and Romney lost so shutup already lets work on making a better country and stop the blame game already.

    Watching the election it was a very close contest, i wish mitt have won becos america needs a new hand to handle their economy, their foreign policy in the face of nuclear iran. What Mitt should do is to write a book on those lofty ideas he wanted to bring to their country, he will sell as a hot cake.

    He would be a great Economic Adviser for prime minister Hun Sen. Cambodia is growing fast and we do need a man like him. Too bad most Americans did not have that vision in him.

    What is obama going to do is what needs to be asked. how is he going to get America going again. You forget what is important.

    The stock market went down another 300 points. There is a fiscal crises, sandy victim's are not getting help, boeing and other big companies are going to start mass layoff's!
    and obama is going to visit burma.

    Mr. Romney should do what former Presidents always seem to do. Write a book.

    Every body has conveniently forgotten that it was the republican party controlled house of rep.that refused to compromise and go along with obama's plans during his first tenure thereby leading to a stall in economic progress. Now that the american people have reaffirmed their support for the president,let the republican party come down from their high horse and face reality.
