Mitt Romney is featured in the following video, doing a little hoedown alongside performer Alex Boyé at a conference for young Mormons last weekend.

No, really!

We're talking about the same Mitt Romney who some might say came across as a bit wooden during the 2012 Presidential election; as a bit robotic and inhuman, other might argue.

Would he have gained more than 47 percent of the vote if he had done a little jig in public back then? We doubt it could have hurt...

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry is in hot water for making jokes about Mitt Romney's adopted, African-American grandchild on the air last weekend.

The comments came during a segment in which a roster of comedians were riffing on notable photos from the past year, and things went off the rails.

A photo of the Romney family with Mitt's latest grandchild, Kieran Romney, who is adopted and African-American, on Mitt's knee, sparked laughter.

“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” sang out Pia Glenn, one of Harris-Perry’s guests on the show.

Harris-Perry herself said she would like to see the “gorgeous” child and North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, get married some day.

“Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?” she said.

His infamous "47 percent" remark was taken out of context, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney tells The Washington Post in a new interview.

The oft-cited quote was widely interpreted as the 2012 GOP nominee stating that 47 percent of Americans can't be persuaded to take personal responsibility.

Romney says that's not what he was implying at all.

"Actually, I didn't say that," he says. "That's how it began to be perceived, so I had to ultimately respond to the perception, because perception is reality."

The Mitt Romney 47 percent comment was made at a May 2012 closed-to-the-press fundraiser in Florida, where he made his pitch to donors:

Adam Savader, a 21-year old former intern for Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential campaign, was arrested at his home in Long Island Tuesday.

Authorities tell The New York Daily News that Savader is suspected of cyber-stalking a blackmailing various women over the Internet.

Savader has been charged with illegally obtaining naked photos of 15 females and threatening to make them public unless… well, the woman sent him even more naked pictures of themselves.

The man who recorded Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" comments at a fundraiser in Florida will reveal himself Wednesday night on MSNBC.

In a preview of his interview, the bartender credits former President Bill Clinton for his decision to bring a camera to work that fateful day. Say what now?

The Huffington Post reports that his employer previously catered an event where Clinton spoke, and Bill, being Bill, posed for photos with the entire staff.

The bartender decided to bring his camera to the Romney fundraiser, hoping he could get a photo with the Republican presidential candidate as well.

What he got that night turned out to be much more memorable.

In his first extensive interview since losing the Presidential election to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney told Chris Matthews this morning that he only has himself to blame for not taking the White House.

“I lost my election because of my campaign," Romney said on Fox News Sunday. "Not because of what anyone else did."

Romney cited his failure to win over African-American and Hispanic voters, while also zeroing in on his "47 percent" comments as being detrimental to his bid.

Mitt Romney's final vote total in the 2012 presidential election has been tallied, and the Republican challenger received - wait for it - 47 percent of the vote.

Yes, it took this entire time to finalize it (you just didn't hear about it because it wasn't close), and Romney came in almost exactly at the 47 percent figure.

47.2 percent to be exact.

Many will find the number appropriate and ironic, as Romney made waves when a secret video of him talking with donors surfaced late in the campaign season.

Man, 2012 was a great year for videos.

Long or short, highly produced or randomly amateur, political or sexual, musical or viral, these 12 videos spread like wildfire across the World Wide Internets.

What videos stand out as your favorites over the past 12 months? We've chosen a dozen that defined the year. Let's take a look back at 2012 in moving pictures:

12. Gotye, "Somebody That I Used to Know." Overplayed as it is dinky as it is catchy, Gotye's song may be one-hit wonder material, but that one hit was HUGE!

Cool video, too. Often imitated, never duplicated.

Mitt Romney's Christmas card has been revealed, and two things stand out:

  • The 2012 election loss hasn't hindered his ability to color-coordinate.
  • That's a lot of grandchildren!

The Romney's opted for somewhat lighter hues than traditional red and green Christmas colors. If nothing else, you have to give them credit for execution:

It apparently is possible to fit 29 family members into one photo. Romney may not be moving to the White House in 2013, but at least he has plenty of company.

In a twist even he might have to smile at, Mitt Romney's approval rating is currently 47% ... the same segment of the population he famously said are on the take.

The gods of political irony have smiled once again via a new Politico poll showing that 47 percent of likely U.S. voters now view Romney and Paul Ryan favorably.

No idea why Politico is still polling anything regarding Romney, but that's where he stands with the electorate. It also matches his 47 percent in the 2012 election.

More significantly, the number echoes Romney's 47 percent comment, which over the weekend was named "quote of the year" by an annual Yale University survey.
