Mitt Romney likes to talk about Obama and his peeps liking free stuff. But honestly, it's Mitt who likes to give Obama free stuff. Mitt is the gift that just keeps giving. Once again he was caught telling his big money people how he really feels about other people in America. (BTW, he is not alone. His running mate has been talking crazy as well.)
In Mitt's world the only reason O beat him is because he promised us minorities and women "free stuff". (O, I am still waiting on that Audi R8.)
I bet even a lot of you white folks are glad Mitt didn’t win right about now. I mean this guy is seriously out of touch.
Obama, Romney argued, had been “very generous” to blacks, Hispanics and young voters. He cited as motivating factors to young voters the
administration’s plan for partial forgiveness of college loan interest and the extension of health coverage for students on their parents’ insurance plans well into their 20s. Free contraception coverage under Obama’s healthcare plan, he added, gave an extra incentive to college-aged women to back the president.
Romney argued that the Obama’s health care plan’s promise of coverage “in perpetuity” was “highly motivational” to those voters making $25,000 to
$35,000 who might not have been covered, as well as to African American and Hispanic voters. Pivoting to immigration, Romney said the Obama campaign’s efforts to paint him as “anti-immigrant” had been effective and that the administration’s promise to offer what he called “amnesty” to the children of illegal immigrants had helped turn out Hispanic voters in record numbers.
“The President’s campaign,” he said, “focused on giving targeted groups a big gift—so he made a big effort on small things. Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.”
Mitt, dividing the country is not a good look for you or your party. As the current leader of the republican party you cannot afford to play us against them in our country right now. Even your fellow republicans are calling you out.
"Gov. Bobby Jindal – the newly elected chair of the Republican Governors Association and a frequent subject of 2016 presidential speculation – reiterated Thursday his irritation at Mitt Romney's comments explaining his defeat in the presidential election.
Romney was recorded telling donors on a conference call that President Barack Obama won votes by offering "gifts" to African-Americans, Hispanics and young voters.
on "The Situation Room." "This is not where the Republican Party needs to go. If you want voters to like you, the first thing you've got to do is like them first."
The Louisiana governor's comments were similar to remarks he made Wednesday in Las Vegas, where he and other governors are attending a meeting of the Republican Governors Association.
During his CNN interview on Thursday, Jindal linked the latest Romney comments to the candidate's remarks at a closed door fund-raiser in May, when he argued that 47 % of Americans were "victims" dependent on government and would never vote for him.
"I don't think we advance this discussion or debate by insulting folks," Jindal said. "Look, the Republicans need to stick to our principles, but we need to treat other people with respect. Even those we don't agree with, we need to show them we respect them and their beliefs. We can disagree without being disagreeable. Republicans said a lot of dumb things. We need to condemn the remarks." [Source]
I think that Mr. Jindal is getting ready for 2016. But, I must admit, he is right about this one. Treating "other people with respect" is always a good thing. Somehow I don't think that Mitt respects the "beliefs" of others.
