If Mitt Romney Had Won, Is This What His Website Would've Looked Like?

"I'm excited about our prospects as a nation. My priority is putting people back to work in America." So says "President-Elect Mitt Romney" in a screenshot now doing the rounds on Tumblr. It's purportedly taken from a website that Romney's PR team had primed and ready to go live to the world in the event that he'd won the presidential election this week.

It's pretty convincing. The graphics, quotes, and headlines are suitably patriotic. The pics of a smiling Romney shaking hands with adoring fans are suitably upbeat. And there are details about the inauguration event and links to different sections of the site that would let you "join the administration" or "believe in America."

As the Huffington Post notes:

"For a while on Wednesday, a draft version of his transition website was visible to the public on a server belonging to the company that designed it, a Utah software shop called SolutionStream. The site, located at romney.solutionstreamcreative.com, was titled: 'Mitt Romney Elected the 45th President of The United States of America.'"

So is it real? It sure looks like it. Or is it a highly elaborate art project? There's a hot debate online about it now.

    People forget that Obama won by only 3 million votes which is nothing when you figure we have 350 million people in this country. THAT means that 49% do NOT want him as our president! The unions worked overtime to make sure Obama was re-elected. They lied, stole and paid off anyone and everyone they could find for their vote!! See the unions are sitting with at least 21 million in their bank accounts and are exempt from paying any taxes and Obama backs them 100%!! Between the unions and the biased liberal media, this country will stop being the richest and most powerfull country if they have their way!! They will be the only ones with all the money!!

    such an idiot.. who has won by a 70- 30 margin.. GWB? lol...Did they not steal Fla. twice.. why was his Brother Jeb the governor of Fla.. Rebubs didn't take the latin vote serious.. now you are going to have to because power is in the people then policies become re addressed.....

    Frisky- Rmoney ended up with 47% of the votes not 49%. There were plenty of lies in the campaign but the Republican's have by far the worst record of lying doing the election. They even stated that they will not let fact checkers run their campaighn. In fact the liar of the year is Romney for his lie about Jeep sending American Jobs to China. But you are right about the biased media being a problem however it is only the conservative media Faux News that has had to go to court claiming it is entertainment and not acutal news. Damn facts always in the way of good Obama bashing.

    You old white Men- your views and values are out dated in this day and time, hate is a very powerful and negative emotion...I hate no one, I'm hurt and I get emotional sometimes, but if old guys wanted to get the president out of office on the first day? That's plain old Racism, and your reward will be harsh if you don't change your ways.

    This evil lost....this liar lost.... This flip flopping tea bagger lost.... This Mormon lost.... This evil man lost because God would never deceive this country in this manner .
    This man is the worst possible excuse as a person... A racist liar, and a fire in hell awaits him.

    I was real. It was real delusional and wishful, magical thinking. Bye bye, Mitt.

    "The danger
    to America is not Barack
    Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the
    Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama
    presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a
    depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
    The problem
    is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of
    what ails America .
    Blaming the
    prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools
    that made him their prince.
    The
    Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.
    It is less
    likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their
    president."

    Why do yawl hate this white President of the United States.  His is the product of a white girl from Kansas, who hereself was a racist.  Lordie knows she did not like white folk.  She went around the world chasing colored tail.  It's her fault, she brought him into the world.  We would have had a better chance with an African American President.  Time for a change, either a female or a President of color, no more white men in the white house.

    B SEYMORE---You are by far the most racist person I hve read so far! Disliking the pesident for his ideas and way of governing has nothing to do with his skin color but his idealogies!! If this president was pure white and blond with blue eyes and married to a pure white woman I would dislike him as much as I do Obama for the way he is destroying our nation! This is a democracy and capitalist country which Obama completely hates. YOU love Obama BECAUSE of his skin color and no other reason regardless if his sick demented ideas are destroying the greatest country on earth! YOU are the filthy racist NOT those that dislike him for his way of governing!!

    Frisky - you are really have no clue. It is just sad that you can even vote - you have to take a test to get a drivers licence in America. If you had to take a current events test to vote in America - Fox News viewers and you would not be able to pass the test.

  • KAY

    CHASING COLORED TAIL.  WHAT A STATEMENT.  APPARENTLY THE WHITE TAIL AND ALL THE OTHER COLORS DID NOT FIT.  WHAT A PITY YOU ARE STILL JUDGING PEOPLE ON THEIR SKIN COLOR.  WELL ONE THING FOR SURE....ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU WILL MEET YOUR MAKER AND YOU CAN ASK HIM WHY WE COME IN  DIFFERENT COLORS.  

    HE (GOD) MUST BE A GOD OF COLORS.....LOOK IN THE MIRROR..DUMMY

    The conservatives scared people enough to lose.  They continue to scare people.  Of course they had websites ready, just as the democrats had things ready for a win.  Moot point now.  Republicians lost so we move on.

    No, federal government hating radical teabaggers lost. They're not the same as Americans in the 21st century. They are a dying breed, and I say, good riddance.
