White House Slaps Down Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment

Source: Talkingpointsmemo.com

"That view of the American people of the electorate and of the election is at odds with the truth of what happened last week," Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One, per a White House pool report. "As we talked about a lot and the president talked about a lot, making it easier for Americans to go to college – that’s good for America. It’s good for all Americans. It’s good for the economy. Making health care available to young people who can stay on their parents’ plans. That’s good for those families it’s good for those young people so they aren’t bankrupted in their 20s by an illness. And it’s good for the economy and it’s good for all of us."

Carney contrasted Romney's message with Obama's goal of fighting for the middle class, a focus he emphatically stressed at his first post-election news conference at the White House on Wednesday.

"The president pursues policies that have at their core a desire to build the middle class, strengthen the middle class, make the middle class more secure, because that’s what makes America more secure," Carney said. "So it’s just not the view we take about the decision the American people made last week."

3. Romney Can't understand any motive that is not for personal gain.

and neither can Republicans in general.
IF Obama won, it must have been that he bought more votes than Romney did.
People want stuff for themselves.
Simple a that.
And that cynical attitude is why he lost.
