Coming up at the LA Times: The Romney "GIFTS" leak...

Los Angeles Times:

Mitt Romney said on a conference call with donors Wednesday that he lost last week’s election to President Obama because the incumbent gave “a lot of stuff” to African Americans, Latinos and young people.

At 12:30 p.m. PST today, Los Angeles Times political reporter Maeve Reston will talk about how she was able to capture thoughts Romney seemed to presume would be just between him and several hundred donors on a special post-election phone call.

Reston will join me, Politics Now host Jim Rainey, to talk about the “gifts” Romney said the president gave away and how that comports with the reality of Obama’s first term. Romney said the beneficiaries of these gifts were young people, African Americans and Latinos.

Also, we’ll ask whether Romney may have also made promises to the voters that could be deemed as incentives to bring out his conservative backers and whether Romney’s theory adequately describes what went wrong for him in campaign 2012.

1. I think she was on Lawrence O'Donnell last night ...

... or maybe it was Eliot Spitzer. I flip back and forth between MSNBC & Current.

4. This was no 'leak'.

The reporter is just trying to make a name for herself. No one speaks to several hundred people on the phone and expects the comments to remain private. Silly.
