Romney angered to 47%

Mitt Romney: Obama Won Because Of 'Gifts' To Blacks, Hispanics And Young Voters


A week after losing the presidential 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.

1. Guess we're in the anger phase

The five stages of grief:

Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.”
Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”
Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.”
Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”
Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.”

5. When have Republicans ever gotten past "denial"?

They never have to take the blame ... it's always someone else.

"My grades weren't good enough to even consider college. Some n*gger got in instead of me ..."

4. No Romney didn't, he got 47% of the vote. Now look at the states

he carried, the states that have the highest percentage of non-taxpayers and receive more
federal money than they pay in. So you see the 47% did vote for him.

8. If the shoe were on the other foot, imagine Obama saying that Rmoney won because...

...of the big gifts he gave to one percenters and corporations. The RW media would be boiling over, right about now, and they would NEVER, EVER, let it go.

9. If you needed more proof that Mitt was beaten by the better man...

...Mitt just supplied it. What a classless, transparent, base thing to say.
