Conservatives Condemn Romney’s ‘Gift’ Remarks

Get Off The Stage, Mitt

“Romney’s theory isn’t just wrong, it’s pernicious,” wrote Daily Caller conservative columnist Matt Lewis.“Here’s hoping he finally rides off into the political sunset.”[...]

Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist who helmed Hispanic outreach for John McCain in 2008 and worked for Jon Huntsman in 2012, was also critical of Romney through the campaign for his failure to engage minority communities. She took to her Twitter feed after “gifts” to tie the remarks to his broader shortcomings as a candidate.

“Livid at Romney saying Obama won b/c offered minorities ‘gifts,”’ she wrote.“As if he didn’t alienate Hispanics enuf while running! Look in mirror, Mitt.”

David Frum, a former Bush speechwriter and longtime critic of the party’s lurch to the right, held up Romney’s latest comments as emblematic of his failed campaign.

“Mitt Romney was very wrong to see 2012 as a referendum on ‘stuff,’” he wrote in a blog post.

“It was a referendum on the question, which candidate would do a better job promoting prosperity and creating jobs. That was the referendum that Romney and the Republican party lost. We lost both because voters did not believe in the job-creating magic of upper-income tax cuts – and because voters were unpersuaded that the GOP even cared that much about job creation, as opposed to wealth preservation.”

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/11/mit...

The problem is, none of these people has any real power inside the party and will merely be shouted down by the conservative entertainment complex. Most of what I’ve seen and heard from the usual suspects indicates that most of the conservative base agrees with Romney and probably wishes he had been more explicit about his views during the campaign.

Hostess Brands, the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, said it has sought court permission to go out of business after failing to get wage and benefit cuts from thousands of its striking bakery workers.
Hostess said a national strike by members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union that began last week had crippled its ability to produce and deliver products at several facilities.
The liquidation of the company will mean that most of its 18,500 employees will lose their jobs, Hostess said on Friday.
The 82-year-old company said it took the decision to shut down after determining that not enough employees had returned to work by a deadline on Thursday.......
You know how Ford got through w/out bailouts for FAILouts?
They sucked it up, capped, curbed and budgeted even more, to the point of near starvation (theoretically speaking) and TOUGHED it out.
They did NOT continue on any irresponsible, reckless, unaccountable "spend spend spend what was NOT there" sprees.
REALITY....there's no such thing as NOT having to pay the piper, for that which has been drained.
No problem. Someone will buy the Hostess brands and make Twinkies with non-union labor.

That is not true in any state.

with an obesity rate approaching 50% and higher for kids under 13, I very much doubt these kids are going hungry, much less starving
the rate of obesity and out of shape kids is child abuse
Letting kids go hungry for lack of decent nutritional intake, creating skeletons with no energy to do anything other than whine is abuse.

Not everyone is genetically geared to be emmaciated, it often breeds to continual sickness and ill health.

We don't need no stinking COMMIETIC food nazis! Especially ones that obviously do nOT practice what they want to take away from others!

Condeleesa Rice went on talk shows & said how Iraq had WMDs. We invaded Iraq. There were no WMDs. Republicans confirm Condi Rice as Sec of State.
Susan Rice said the attacks appeared to be the results of a demonstration against a video that escalated. This has been changed to a planned terrorist attack.. Republicans run screaming through the streets with torches & pitchforks. OMG OMG she can't be Sec of State.
Testimony from the CIA confirms that their talking points changed. That the possible relation with terrorist organizations were scrubbed from their initial memos.
The idea that Republicans didn't give a sh*t that the misinformation Condeleesa Rice provided helped send 4000 soldiers to their death evidently pales in comparison of statements about Benghazi that got no one killed or injured.
Republicans really suck d*ck. How anyone can support this pack of liars & losers is beyond me.
My God, the hypocrisy alone.
See see is the McCain & the sniveling weasel Graham will apologize.
Condi is smart, Susan is a twit, there lies the difference.

Obama would find it offensive if you were to suggest that he or any of his administration has ever lied or tried to misrepresent anything. He and they have only made "off the cuff" remarks and are only interested in transparency and being ambassaders for truth. It has always been about honesty and what's best for the U.S.A. and it's citizens. F A C T S it's all about the facts. Do the math and use common sense.:)

You know if you keep toying with Dave like this, he will blow a head gasket. Then he will scream. If he screams, his parents will hear him from the floor above. If his parents hear a scream they will think that pesky raccoon got back in the house. When raccoons get in the house, they break out the guns and start shooting at anything that moves. So, don't make Dave scream.
