Mitt Romney reportedly didn't write a concession speech. He just wasn't prepared to lose.
Now that the votes have been counted and a speech has been given, it's clear that things didn't go Romney's way this year. If he could do it all over again, would he make any changes?
Perhaps not. At least not any that he's willing to admit. Though there are a few moments from his campaign that may have cost him the election.
Here are 7 moments the Romney campaign likely regrets:
That Mathematically Impossible Tax Plan
A slew of economists and pundits deemed Romney and Ryan's tax plan <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/25/martin-sullivan-romney-tax-plan_n_2015951.html">mathematically impossible</a>.
Romney <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/31/paul-krugman-mitt-romney-fema_n_2050113.html">planned to privatize </a>the Federal Emergency Management Agency. After FEMA and Obama's great work during Hurricane Sandy, it has become even clearer that such a move <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2012/10/31/hurricane-sandy-election-fema/1671557/">would have been detrimental</a>.
Romney said that Dodd-Frank "hurt the housing market" during the <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/presidential-debate-transcript-denver-colo-oct/story?id=17390260&page=9#.UJqh1-Oe_oo">first presidential debate</a>. Congressman Barney Frank <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/barney-frank-mitt-romney_n_1937975.html">spoke out,</a> calling Romney's statements "totally inaccurate."
Talking About 'Death Panels'
Throughout the election, the Romney camp warned of the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/03/presidential-debate-live_n_1927651.html#147_romney-invokes-death-panels-without-saying-it">"death panels"</a> that would control Americans' healthcare and treatments under Obamacare. In reality, any action of this sort <a href="https://editorial.huffingtonpost.com/tmp/60.6519894282432_8.html?preview=yes#slide=1601278">is illegal</a> under the health care reform law.
Opposing Gay Marriage
Now that the nation has spoken and gay marriage <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/07/gay-marriage-victory_n_2085900.html">has been made legal</a> in Maine, Maryland, and Washington, Romney may start to regret his opposition to same-sex marriage.
Attacking Planned Parenthood
Romney was open about his plan to <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/05/cecile-richards-mitt-romney-planned-parenthood_n_2079335.html">defund Planned Parenthood</a>, causing many Americas to <a href="http://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/positions/2011-congressional-attacks-womens-health-care-1024.htm">protest </a>in defense of women's health. <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/07/womens-vote-obama-victory-election" target="_hplink">55 percent of women</a> voted for Obama while only 43 percent voted for Romney.
Avoidance Of Global Warming
Romney and Ryan avoided the issue of global warming, even making <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dean-baker/romneys-global-warming-jo_b_2078504.html">flippant comments</a> about the issue during the campaign. After Hurricane Sandy, which many prominent figures <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/05/hurricane-sandy-climate-change-politicians_n_2080324.html?utm_hp_ref=green" target="_hplink">blamed on global warming</a>, climate change was in the forefront of voters' minds.
