Rmoney Shows His CLASS

Mitt Rmoney may be the GOP's greatest gift ever to the Democratic Party. First, here's Benjy Sarlin of TPM:
Mitt Romney has a simple explanation for donors as to why his presidential campaign came up short: President Obama gave out too much stuff.

According to reports in the Los Angeles Times and New York Times, the former Republican nominee said during a call with donors on Wednesday that Obama had been “very generous” in doling out “big gifts” to “the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people” as well as to women throughout his first term. Benefits such as access to “free health care,” guaranteed contraceptive coverage, more affordable student loans, and “amnesty for children of illegals,” all combined to give the president a decisive edge in popularity.

“The President’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift — so he made a big effort on small things,” Romney said. “Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.”

His explanation contained strong echoes of a leaked fundraiser tape earlier this year in which he told campaign backers that Obama’s strength came from the 47 percent of Americans who consider themselves “victims” and “dependent” on government.

Next, even Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) strongly criticized Mittens for needless divisiveness:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) strongly condemned Mitt Romney Wednesday night for remarks the former Republican nominee made blaming President Obama’s re-election on “big gifts” for minorities and women.

“That is absolutely wrong,” Jindal told reporters in Las Vegas at the Republican Governors Association meeting. “Two points on that. One, we have got to stop dividing American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent — we need to go after every single vote. And second, we need to continue to show that our policies help every voter out there achieve the American dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children the opportunity to get a great education, which is for their children to have even better-paying jobs than their parents.”

Um... Mittens? Those lazy, rotten "takers" that Obama promised so much stuff to? There's a word for them.


Why don't you just go to your home (any of them) and STFU? You would do more than just the GOP a big favor if you put a cork in it.


  1. Ah yes, Romney is consistent, if nothing else. I read both those stories yesterday and limericked about Romney's "gift" nonsense.

    I must say Jindal surprised me. I guess some Republicans are starting to wake up.

    1. Mad, I believe Jindal is taking the opportunity to put his name before the public, perhaps as part of the 2016 field, or perhaps later. He saw how well Obama's "bipartisan" shtick worked, and thought he might be able to ply it. I doubt, frankly, that anyone but Obama can do that, and it hasn't been easy even for him.

      Rmoney is, pure and simple, a boil on the face of America. He has no personal or civic virtues. He really should do everyone the favor of simply going home and shutting the fuck up.
