So, we all know Mitt Romney didn’t win the presidential election. But for a moment, it didn’t look that way when a Romney victory website briefly showed up online Wednesday.

“It was posted right after his concession speech on election night. His victory website, along with the presidential seal, the presidential-elect seal, his slogan for a better America … ”

And this wasn’t just one page, but an entire site. KGTV has details.

“For a while, the public also saw a quote from Romney about his excitement about the prospects of the nation. There was even a link on the homepage with a link of what would have been Romney’s acceptance speech.”

The apparent “oops” was short-lived, but WJXT reports on how some people captured it forever.

“ … the transition website was designed ahead of time. It was taken down quickly, but not before several sites took screenshots.”

U.S. News and World Report has some of those images. From “President-elect Romney’s vision” — to “revitalizing the economy.” There was even a “join the administration” page.

The Romney campaign hasn’t yet issued any statement regarding the posting of the site.
