Romney reflects on his loss in call with campaign donors

Romney reflects on his loss in call with campaign donors

By Maeve Reston at the LA Times

"SNIP..........................................

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-age women to back the president.

Romney argued that Obama’s healthcare 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.”

The Wednesday donor call was organized by Romney’s finance team and included a final rundown of fundraising efforts as well as an analysis by Romney pollster Neil Newhouse, who has been criticized by some Republicans for misleading the candidate about his chances.

1. Fuck Romney. FUCK ROMNEY.

And Obama needs to rescind his offer to sit down and talk after this crap, which is really more of the same of what he said in his infamous 47% tape.

2. My gift from the President, Mr. Romney, was being able to say:

Go fuck yourself Mr. Romney, you ignorant, tax dodging, magic underwear wearing, dog abusing piece of shit! And to do so without insulting an elected official.

4. What an ass.

He can't be "politically correct" and say that the black guy gave the latinos a thumbs up, and they voted for him.
This is nothing more than more thinly veiled racism. It needs to be stopped NOW!

5. what kills me is...

Romney acts as if (and probably truly believes that) providing health care for lower income people was somehow a calculated strategy to steal votes... it never occurs to him that providing health insurance for uninsured or under insured people is simply the right thing to do...

6. Mitt was so mistreated

I can't believe this crap. The blame game? Get a mirror dickhead.
Mitt has been misled all of his life as the "Chosen One"
What a crock of shit to blame the worst off among us for HIS misfortune.
I hope he gets everything he never wants!
I wish one of those perfect offspring would bring home a little half black baby.
But then Mitt would probably just strap him to the car top because "He likes it up there"

10. He's just giving hickies to his bosses asses

He needs to justify being rejected by the American people because they threw a lot of their money at him and they just lost money.

Ryan is doing the same thing.

12. Hey Mitt, Obama out wooed ya !

I guess that 47% tape hit it on the head. Talk about a sore loser.
Hey, Mitt you needed to give a gift to Big Bird. But Mitt was giving gifts too: tax cuts to the rich but the best gift MITT gave us was 4 MORE YEARS !!!.

I wonder what Chris Matthews thinks about Mitt's concession speach now?
