Mitt Romney’s concession speech (video)

This is the speech Mitt Romney gave last night conceding defeat in the 2012 election.

Note the lack of booing when Obama’s name was mentioned; suggests some serious crowd-wrangling had occurred. Note also the enthusiasm for Paul Ryan. Rick Perlstein is right — Republicans always nominate whoever is next in line.

In my view, Paul Ryan has been levered — reportedly by the billionaires now running the Republican party — into that chair. He’s next in line. If you assume they knew all along that Romney would lose, that’s Mission Accomplished. “See y’all in 2016,” I hear them gladly say.
