Maybe it's time for Mitt "Nostradamus" Romney to say, "I told you so!"

I've been meaning to write a post about Mitt for some time now.   An extremely harsh one, in fact.  Almost 59 million people voted for Mitt Romney for president on November 6th, 2012, and where has he been since losing?

Hiding out in his mansion in La Jolla, California.  While Obama roars triumphantly and flings his feces, as the media watches and masturbates furiously to their master's wickedness, 59 million people have no spokesman, and can only look on in horror.  What better time for Mitt to take the gloves off, without a vote left to win, and say what he really feels about the whole socialist regime now being forced down America's gagging throat?

The fact that he sulks silently, refusing to fight for what he claimed to believe in (see McCain, John and Ryan, Paul) makes me believe that Romney was no more than a fair-weather candidate, a man who wanted to be president to be president, and who had no real fire or passion for fixing what ails the nation.  In other words, a man who was not fit for the moment, and who perhaps should not have been elected president, regardless of the evil that now threatens to envelop us all.

But I am willing to cut Romney a break, if - IF - he comes out now, to say I told you so.  Over at Ricochet  Rob Long points out the many eerie "Prophecies of the Mormon" that have since come to pass:

On Jan. 14, Chrysler’s CEO acknowledged that Jeeps would be built in China, confirming a statement that unfairly earned Romney the moniker “liar of the year.”

Score one.

Then, when forces linked to al-Qaida captured the government-held town of Konna, Mali, on Jan. 10, they drove home a statement Romney made during the second presidential debate in Boca Raton, nearly three months earlier.

“With the Arab Spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and — and public life and in economic life in the Middle East,” he said then. “But instead we’ve seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events.”

Score two.

This week saw another Romney prediction come to pass — that a re-elected Obama would infringe on our Second Amendment rights.

“In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election,” Romney said at an April 2012 National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Referring to the right to bear arms, Romney told convention-goers, “If we are going to safeguard our Second Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.”

Score three.

Finally, Romney was ridiculed for using “binders of women” to describe what a Romney Cabinet would look like. Instead of mocking the poorly worded phrase, we should have listened to the words themselves.

The president’s announcement of his second-term Cabinet prompted ABC’s George Stephanopoulos to ask on Jan. 10, “Where are the women?” Apparently, they’re all still in Romney’s binders.

Score four.

This is the time for Mitt to step out of his little suburban enclave, and stand up to the bullying Barack and his partisan pit bulls in the mainstream media, and say "Told you so! You were lied to by the media, mislead by Obama, and manipulated by crass commercials! And boy of boy, if you think things suck today, just wait until tomorrow!"

Force people to face the truth of their choices. Stand up for the 59 million who supported you. And make the media explain how and why they constantly misrepresented his positions, and Barack's.

But the most important thing Mitt would accomplish is to...foster mistrust. Mistrust of the media, and mistrust of the president. Simultaneously, people may actually give the Republican position a more neutral hearing, knowing that the last candidate turned out to be a prophet (of doom).

For all this to happen, Mitt's gotta open his mouth. Because the media is not going to point out how wrong (and biased) they were, and how right the Republican candidate was.

And if he doesn't accept the responsibility that he took upon himself when accepting the nomination...he will have proven himself to be a loser, and not worthy of the post he campaigned so half-heartedly for.

Man up and stand up, Mitt. Or disappear completely.
