Former Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich has joined a growing number of Republicans in criticizing Mitt Romney for saying he lost the election because President Obama gave "gifts" to minorities such as African-Americans and Latinos.

"I just think it's nuts," Gingrich told Martha Raddatz on Sunday on ABC's This Week. "I mean, first of all, it's insulting."

"This would be like Wal-Mart having a bad week and going, 'The customers have really been unruly,'" he continued. "I mean, the job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can't offer a better future that is believable to more people, we're not going to win." ...

He added that he would have been "dumfounded" before the election at the idea of Romney getting fewer votes than John McCain ...

1. In other words

"I just think it's nuts," that he said in public what we think in private.

2. He's another one

That needs to shut the eff up. Shut his mouth and slither away on his belly. He's a master of manipulating folks into believing "thooooooooooose" people are taking something from them. Yuck!

7. He certainly took his time coming to that conclusion

It looks like he had to be convinced by at least a dozen other members of his party.

10. This is spiralling in interesting directions

It's revealing how rampant this idea of gifts, people want things from the government, food stamp president, etc. is in the republican party. I've noticed that corporate welfare, tax breaks, no-bid government contracts, etc. are somehow excluded from the category of gifts.
