Romney 100% Believes His 47% Comment

Filed in National by on November 15, 2012

Here’s Mitt Romney being a jerk and a sore loser and doing his best to further divide the country:

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.

[...]

“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.”

[...]

“You can imagine for somebody making $25,000 or $30,000 or $35,000 a year, being told you’re now going to get free health care, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free health care worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity — I mean, this is huge,” Mr. Romney said. “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.”

May I suggest that one of the main reasons Mr. Romney lost was due to comments like these, along with a stunning contempt for most people?

Bobby Jindal countered Mitt’s sour grapes temper tantrum by basically saying, “So long, loser.  Don’t let the door hit you on the ass…”

Jindal said that he “absolutely reject[s]” Romney’s comments and that they were indicative of broader problems for the GOP as they regroup in the wake of last week’s defeat.

“If we’re going to continue to be a competitive party and win elections on the national stage and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly: One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream, period,” he said. “No exceptions.”

Looks like Jindal is trying to carve out the sane niche for 2016.  Good luck with that, Bobby.  Have you met your base?

But let’s get back to Romney’s comment.  Look at who he blames – African Americans, Hispanics, Women and young people.  The exact groups Republicans must win if they hope to survive as a party, Mitt Romney just trashed.

You gotta love Romney’s “It’s not me, it’s you” twist on the break-up excuse.  Last January I wrote this about Romney:

Mitt is the guy you bring home who causes your mother’s brow to crease in uncertainty and your father’s jaw to tense.  He looks good on paper, but in person he comes across slick and insincere.  He’s the guy who pretends he thought your mother was your sister… because, you know, he was told that women eat that stuff up.

And if his performance doesn’t go over well he’s genuinely confused and becomes petulant.  Not that Mr. Electable would ever look in the mirror and ponder what he did wrong.  Oh no, self awareness is not his curse.  Instead he’ll blame everyone else.  His intended can’t recognize a good catch, therefore she didn’t deserve his awesomeness.  Her father didn’t like him because he couldn’t stand the idea of his son-in-law being more successful.

So Mr. Electable goes on his merry way, confident in the thought that the problem is them, not him.

Am I good, or what?  ;-)

The bigger problem for the Republican Party?  Most remaining Republicans (You know, the ones who decide who wins the Primary) agree with Romney.  Most have no intention of changing their ideas or ideology – just their candidates’ skin color.  They’ll run Jindal or Rubio in 2016 and say, “What more do you people want?  Can’t you see they’re not white?”

    It isn’t just Team Romney. The GOP’s self reflection period was minutes long. Jindal is an outlier who will go nowhere in the modern GOP unless he starts getting his hate on.

    What a total and complete piece of crap this guy is. if there was ANY doubt the right person won the election……
    I’m sorry V, I know this is your thing…. but Mitt needs to eat bags and bags of dicks.

  3. socialistic ben says:

    im not saying eating bags of dicks is your thing, V. but telling people…. nevermind *ducks*

  4. cassandra_m says:

    So what happened to the Party of Personal Responsibility? I crack myself up. Of course he blames everyone but himself. This is the First Principle of the Modern GOP.

    And Jindal isn’t much of an outlier. He thinks that you fight for all of the votes, but they need to watch their tone. They think wingnuttia just needs better manners.

  5. puck says:

    Republicans are so accustomed to winning with support from working class people voting against their interests they have come to expect it. I think this election is clear evidence brown people are smarter than white people.

    Republicans just know minorities will one day agree that Republican policies actually benefit them, if they could just get it through their nappy little heads.

  6. Charles Giacometti says:

    Once again, Romney shows he is a liar or a moron. Under both Romneycare and Obamacare, the vast majority of people will buy policies from insurance companies. Lower income people will pay less but not nothing. Moreover, the data is abundantly clear that people who need government assistance only need it for transitional periods and not for a “lifetime” as that asshole suggests.

  7. X Stryker says:

    Amazingly voters declined Romney’s generous offer to cut his own taxes.

  8. Liberal Elite says:

    It won’t be very long before the MSM deems that the things that Romney says are no longer worth reporting.

    In fact we may have just arrived at that point.

    In the last six months, obama suddenly embraced gay marriage, prior to that he was on record as being opposed to it. In the last 6 months stopped deporting illegals, in the last 6 months took work reqiurment out of welfare. In the last 4 years added 15 million people to food stamps, forgive student loan interest, are you guys really hearing the words coming oot of your mouth, in his best decade santa clause could not keep up with obama clause. The truth does not divide the country, but ignoring it sure can

  10. Liberal Elite says:

    One of your claims is a lie, Rusty. Do you know which?

  11. Liberal Elite says:

    Well…

    “In the last six months, obama suddenly embraced gay marriage, prior to that he was on record as being opposed to it.”

    That’s basically true. Though it’s not clear that he actually ever really opposed it.

    “In the last 6 months stopped deporting illegals.”

    It’s true that he stopped deporting some illegals, but certainly not all. It is still “criminals adios”.

    “in the last 6 months took work reqiurment out of welfare.”

    This is the blatant lie.

    “In the last 4 years added 15 million people to food stamps”

    Basically true. Food stamps are now about 2% of the budget. Increases match long term unemployment increases.

    “forgive student loan interest”

    Certainly not all, but small portion has been… (PSLF program)

    By my count, one real lie.

    In an election that produced a bumper crop of Republican sour grapes Romney will go down as the worst of the bad bunch. He’s sulking and pouting like a child. Go home Mitt, count your cars and houses and have a good cry, then STFU already.
