Romney's Concession Barely Cleared the Bar

Scott Farris. author of Almost President, a history of failed presidential candidates, told the Washington Post that Mitt Romney's concession speech didn't reflect the urgency of healing a divided nation: "While he congratulated Obama, he never really validated the result by saying 'the people have spoken' ... Praying for the president is nice, but it is not the same as validating the election."

"It was a speech that sounded as if he did not emerge from the election with much respect, let alone affection, for the president. He sounded as if he really expected to win and was immensely disappointed in the result -- even more so than usual."
