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:

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.

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.

A man was arrested Thursday after allegedly charging a motorcade carrying former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the U.S. Secret Service said.

No, it wasn't Romney Face Tattoo Guy ... just a random crazy guy.

Romney was making his arrival to the White House for lunch with President Obama when an unidentified man charged his car (before being quickly dealt with).

Secret Service spokesman Max Milien said that the guy was standing near a security entrance to the White House and briefly got in the motorcade's way.

Mitt Romney can still enjoy a nice silver lining following his loss in the 2012 presidential election, brags adviser Stuart Stevens, who feels the Republican won where it counts.

Seriously, this isn't an Onion article ... these are real quotes.

Stevens penned an op-ed in the Washington Post today arguing that by winning wealthier and whiter voters, Romney secured a huge moral victory over Obama.

"On November 6, Mitt Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income," Stevens wrote.
