Romney blames 'gifts' on election loss. Bobby Jindal says: 'Wrong!'

Nov 15, 2012 Full story: www.csmonitor.com 22

Mitt Romney blames gifts to young and minority voters for why he lost the presidential election. Election tensions within the Republican Party flared anew as Gov. Bobby Jindal rejected Romney's 'gifts' explanation.

Mitt Romney is complaining about “gifts” – but to Democrats, it’s Mr. Romney who’s the gift. And he keeps on giving.

The Republicans’ failed presidential nominee has inflamed intraparty tension by blaming his loss on President Obama’s “gifts” to young voters and minorities – health coverage, contraceptive coverage in health insurance, forgiveness of interest on college loans – not any failings of his own as a candidate.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan became victims to the bribe tactics of Obama. Romney and Ryan blindness caused the Republicans to lose the election time and again. Jindal is wrong to try to support the re-distribution of American money as ‘gift’ to the Obama voters. Jindal must learn by now that Bribe is not constitutional and that he must stop bribing voters in America to prevent its collapse in bankruptcy. Mitt Romney is right to claim that Obama used executive orders and taking control of the student loans and mortgages to give free gifts and bribes to his minority base of Blacks, Hispanics and Asians who happily took the bribe in return for their vote to Obama and to the Democratic Party senators and Representatives. Mitt Romney is right to claim that more than 25 million food stampers, willingly unemployed, willingly disables, American student and foreign students from China and Saudi Arabia that their student loans was forgiven, home owners of minority Blacks and Hispanics that their mortgage was slashed or eliminated by Obama was the reason for the dependence of the Obama free checks. Obama policy of giving Amnesty and free checks to millions of young illegal invaders that came to America with visa that expired and other illegals that crossed the border using the hard earned money of Republicans, conservatives and Libertarians was another main reason for the stolen victory of Obama who believed in stealing as much money from the American people to buy your votes while the GOP 280 Senators and Congressmen will never stand up to the constitution that forbid bribe as way to buy votes and stay in power forever.

It is chracteristic of Mitt Romney to blame anything but himself for his loss. The truth is that Romney is a vapid human being, with no core beliefs except enriching the fat faces of his cronies and his Stepford family.
Mitt Romney is an empty, uncaring human being, just like many others on the right today.
No Mr. Romney, it wasn't gifts, it was a quality opponent winning out over a hollow man.

Romney and company don't seem to realize that 'they' outnumber his 'we'. note: they don't like to be insulted.

How dare the President, and the people that voted for him choose to pay attention to issues that would actually make a difference in their lives. How small minded, greedy and trivial. They should have been thinking about rich people.
