You sit by the phone, waiting. But the guy -- you liked him so much! You had such high hopes for the relationship! -- never calls.
Poor Mitt Romney. Losing hurts. There's the big loss-- you are never ever getting to be president-- and a lot of little slaps to your dignity, besides. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told reporters he gave his congratulations to President Obama over the phone, but only sent Romney a condolence email. The man Romney chose to give the keynote address at the RNC didn’t pick up the phone.
Maybe Governor Christie was keeping his phone line open just in case the Boss decided to call.
