"The president had the power of incumbency, 'Obamacare' was very attractive, particularly to those without insurance, and they came out in large numbers to vote," Romney said. "So that was part of a successful campaign."
'I think the 'Obamacare' attractiveness and feature was something we underestimated, particularly among lower incomes,' Romney said." [Source]
"Lower incomes". Poor Mitt, he refers to human beings with the same detached way one would talk about numbers on a balance sheet.
It wasn't Obamacare that caused Mitt Romney to lose the minority and immigrant vote; it was the way he referred to them during the republican primary, and his failure to connect with them on a human level.
Still, I suspect that it wasn't only poor or minority voters who wanted universal and affordable health care. Check out these two comments after the article I quoted from:
"Interesting I am neither low income nor a minority and I fought hard to get Obamacare passed". And....."Exactly. I have worked my whole adult life for universal health care. Romney and his ilk are F ing liars."
Yes they are.
"The all-out war between President Obama‘s White House and Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward took another mild turn this morning when, after “Mean” Gene Sperling followed up his threatening email with a blistering barrage of compliments Sunday morning, Woodward reloaded, and told Sperling right where to go: to Woodward’s house, and could he please bring President Obama with him, and maybe some other White House officials? Woodward extended the invitation on CBS News’ Face The Nation, explaining to host Bob Schieffer that “talking works.”
Before Woodward breaks out the smoking jacket and Al Green CDs, though, he ought to get his facts straight. Woodward told Schieffer that he had never said Gene Sperling’s email was “threatening,” but the description he gave to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer crried that clear implication, and deliberately omitted the treacly sweetness of the rest of Sperling’s email. Blitzer certainly read it that way, and when he told Woodward that “those of us who have known you for a long time, we know you’re not going to be intimidated or threatened by any senior official at the White House,” Woodward’s response was “Indeed.” [Source]
Where is Carl Bernstein when you need him? He was the real star of this duo.
Bob should have hung up his typewriter (yes typewriter) when Bernstein checked out. Sadly for him, though, it's too late. Now the entire country knows that he is a few books short of a library.
