Mitt Romney ran one of the most racially charged campaigns we've seen in a very long time. Now if we add in his racist surrogates then it becomes the most overtly racist campaign evah! And he took eight days to reflect on his presidential loss so I figured he might tone it down a bit after the adrenalin of months of campaigning wore off and the depression starts to set in.
Boy, was I wrong:
Saying that he and his team still felt “troubled” by his loss to President Obama, Mitt Romney on Wednesday attributed his defeat in part to what he called big policy “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.
In a conference call with fund-raisers and donors to his campaign, Mr. Romney said Wednesday afternoon that the president had followed the “old playbook” of using targeted initiatives to woo specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people.”
“In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Mr. Romney said, contrasting Mr. Obama’s strategy to his own of “talking about big issues for the whole country: military strategy, foreign policy, a strong economy, creating jobs and so forth.”
After eight years of being fleeced by the Bush administration, it appears the American people aren't as dumb as this inhumane man. It appears he did watch BIll O'Reilly's show even though he declined to go on it and reiterated almost everything O'Reilly said. BillO kept it real simple when he said that Americans just wanted 'stuff', but Romney gets very specific in his claims.
What's funny about this is that in his attempts to denounce President Obama he actually makes a good case why all these things are great for the middle class. And he wonders why he couldn't reach so many Americans.
“With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift,” Mr. Romney said. “Free contraceptives were very big with young, college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people. They turned out in large numbers, a larger share in this election even than in 2008.”
Heaven forbid that even as Obama struggled in his first four years he did manage to get some good things out there. College loan assistance: check. Help with contraceptives: check. Health care for young adults: check. Now he gets to da Blacks y Latinos.
The president’s health care plan, he said, was also a useful tool in mobilizing black and Hispanic voters. “Likewise with Hispanic voters, free health care was a big plus.---But in addition with regards to Hispanic voters, the amnesty for children of illegals, the so-called Dream Act kids, was a huge plus for that voting group.”
President Obama was always going to win the black vote even if he wasn't black, and Hispanics will never vote for a party that portrays them as stupid f*&king illegal moochers that need to be shot crossing the border. And we know which party that is, and continues to be.
