"It's a proven political strategy, which is, give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what? They vote for you." We had thought we wouldn't have to fact-check Mitt Romney again, or at least for a while.

Romney promised gifts to the wealthy special interests but they are not the largest voting block in America. hehehehahaha
Romney and Rove thought they could buy the election with their wealthy special interests money but all their money went up in smoke. hehehehahah
It was hilarious to see Rove waste over $300 million of wealthy special interests money trying to buy the White House. hehehehahaha

You seem to think when one person comments on someone or something that we are all inclusive in feeling the same. We aren't liberals and don't have to goose step to the same drummer. Yor are a bit narrow between the ears.

I wonder why Judicial Watch is not also going after Romney? O yea... it's a bias organization that leans right wing Republican.

So sorry you lost the election. Maybe you should not lie & cheat so much.

When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.

Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47. Anticipating this moment, Markos Moulitsas has inaugurated the “Romney 47 percent watch.”

At risk of piling on, a 47 percent finish would represent a perfect conclusion to the Romney political saga. If Romney ran a campaign of unprecedented dishonesty and lack of transparency, virtually all of it was geared towards misleading people about the true nature of his — and his party’s — actual beliefs and governing agenda. This was the case on multiple fronts, from Romney’s dissembling about the size of the tax cut he’d give to the rich, to his evasions about the overhaul he and Paul Ryan planned for the safety net, to the obscuring of the massive upward redistribution of wealth represented by the Ryan agenda — the GOP’s central governing blueprint for nation’s fiscal and economic future.

It was fitting that Romney himself unmasked his own apparent beliefs and the broader ideological implications of the larger GOP agenda and the ideas driving it — in private remarks to those who would likely benefit from his policies most. As Jonathan Chait put it at the time:

This is not a random gaffe, a joke gone bad, or even a terrible brain freeze. It is Romney exposed for espousing a worldview that is at the heart of his party’s mania. The idea he summed up at that fund-raiser was a combination of right-wing fever dreams ...the Ayn Randism, the fact-free class warfare, the frantic rage at a changing America. The Republican Party is going down because its candidate was seen advocating exactly the beliefs that make the party so dangerous and repellant.

Romney’s widely criticized post-election remarks — in which he claimed Obama won by giving core Dem constituencies “gifts”— were essentially a reprise of the 47 percent remarks. Romney reiterated in overly blunt terms what many Republicans and conservatives have been saying for years — and got disemboweled by his own party after detailing these views out loud, a fitting coda to his candidacy.
