Romney Blames Loss on Obama's 'Gifts' to Minorities and Young Voters

Full story: The New York Times

A week after losing the election to President Obama, Mitt Romney blamed his overwhelming electoral loss on what he said were big "gifts" that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

But did flip romney apologize to HIS supporters for failing to get them the gifts they wanted? Everybody's looking for something. Romney wanted to follow the republican agenda and give more tax breaks to the super rich while slashing domestic spending. He's a sore and bitter loser.

Once the GOP dumps people like you, they might have a chance at winning again. America has changed. Rich white men aren't the only ones who can run the country.

Mitt is just making excuses for why he wasted all those rich people's money. Rove blew a wad for sure, but Mitt blew a huge amount of other people's money as well. He couldn't stand there and tell them he was a flip-flopping fool, who had no clue. They would want their money back. This makes them feel better about losing all that money. They feel warm and fuzzy by thinking they is why Romney lost.

Instead of accepting the fact that they ran a bad campaign, and try again next time, they want to blame other Americans in a very bigoted and hateful way.

TARP Part II type bailouts, and the continuation of the Bush Tax Cuts, is all they want for the "job creators" who conveniently keep closing factories in the US, like Bain, and sending the jobs overseas.

What escaped me during the whole campaign was how was Mr. Bain, er Romney, going to create jobs in the US, instead of offshoring?

No. Mitt Romney's downfall was a well coordinated effort of black and Hispanic racists, homosexuals, race mixers, gender benders, and union thugs.

a moronic statement. The biggest unearned freebies go to the 1 percent and especially the international extractive industries - you know the ons that fund climate change deniers like yourself and who claim that energy development doesn't occur in America.

The word "free" is regularly used in American comercial advertisements as a way of increasing sales.

OH, BOO HOO... pay up and STFU or follow your job to China (your beloved Mitt sent it there...)! Repubs made a mess of this country 2000-2008, so now that the Obama rescue team is here, every real patriotic American has to participate in the recovery !

No one likes to take the blame for failure. It's always someone else that screwed up. If Romney is to improve his results he needs to objectively evaluate what he did during his campaign,
identify the negatives and try to reduce or eliminate them. Otherwise he will be comparable to a chessplayer who loses games and never tries to find out why. A perfect formula for guaranteeing a
disastrous repeat.
