Well I had a great new recipe that I -- this week for fried crow.
I've been eating a lot of that lately.
Like a lot of conservatives across the land that I really thought Mitt Romney was going to be elected president.
-- quite wrong.
And so -- most of the conservative observers and commentators.
So America has made a choice now let's be clear it was not the choice that I was hoping far.
But you know what we did it without bloodshed bullets we did -- -- people with boots and badges dragon -- through the streets.
Of course now the hand wringing begins as Republicans -- about Mitt Romney's campaign.
Are Mitt Romney himself.
Look Romney won the primary any earned the right to carry our banner in his -- -- team but gave it all they had.
And I don't agree with those who said that the Obama message of bigger government and more taxes one.
It was not an election about a message.
It was an election about the machinery to get out the votes for President Obama and it was a masterful methodical effort.
Now as I -- do a lot of fellow television and radio talk show host are even not read the opinion columns of those who excoriated Romney.
A couple of things occurred to me.
If you are critical of Mitt Romney and his campaign today before the election.
Then don't be a phony and be critical the day after.
Also I noted that the -- his critics but the people who have never once put their own names on a ballot for -- thing.
And since some seem to have a perfect inside in the how to run a campaign and be a candidate.
I sure hope they're gonna give us all the benefit of their expertise.
And maybe they'll sign up to run the next time.
A -- there are lessons to be learned for sure.
And yes my party does need to have a more effective outreach to people of color.
Those who say the Republicans can't win the votes of African Americans or Hispanics are simply wrong.
I got nearly half of the African American votes in my own state my reelection bid for governor in 2002.
So I know what can be done.
We need to keep the same values and principles.
Just communicate them with our hearts not just our heads.
We need to remind people what we're for.
Not just what we're against.
And we gotta be no longer afraid to take a clear and decisive stand for principle issues.
But Mitt Romney has my appreciation for giving himself fully to the effort.
If he said or did things differently than I would have done them then so be it he ran he won the nomination.
And deserve my respect and support.
You know I know what it's like to be on the field and actually to be in the game.
Most of the critics.
Never got much closer than than macho stand and they've watched from the comfort of the skyboxes.
Look I love politics.
But I will tell you this.
I'm glad it's over.
And back -- as there's more to life than just elections.
By the way later in the show tonight I'm gonna show you something even more important to me.
By the way I think you'll agree the elections are very important and they have consequences.
But I'm gonna congratulate the president and hope.
That he will lead.
As he campaigned.
