CPAC: Mitt Romney’s return and a post-mortem on 2012

“Now, as someone who just lost the last election, I'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one,” Mr. Romney said to laughter at the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.

"Perhaps because I'm a former governor, I would urge us all to learn lessons that come from some of our greatest success stories,” Romney said. “And that's 30 Republican governors across the country.

"Of course, I left the race disappointed that I didn't win,” he said, adding that he was “honored and humbled to have represented the values we believe in."

“It's up to us to make sure that we learn from our mistakes and my mistakes and that we take advantage of that learning to make sure that we take back the nation, take back the White House, get the Senate, and put in place conservative principles,” Romney said.

“Gov. Nathan Deal in Georgia secured a constitutional amendment that makes sure they can have charter schools,” Romney said. “Gov. Rick Snyder got in place right-to-work legislation in Michigan. A number of these Republican governors were able to secure tort reform, and a whole horde of Republican governors inherited budgets that were badly out of balance and have replaced deficits with surpluses.”
