Republicans After ‘Gifts’ Comment: Get Off The Stage, Mitt

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/11/mitt-romney-gifts-republicans.php?ref=fpa

For conservatives and Republicans trying to make the GOP friendlier to those groups, Romney’s comments have not been well-received. To say the least.

Romney’s theory isn’t just wrong, it’s pernicious,” wrote Daily Caller conservative columnist Matt Lewis. “Here’s hoping he finally rides off into the political sunset.”

Many of Romney’s most vocal critics after “gifts” have been tough on Romney before. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jinal (R) initially backed Rick Perry in the presidential primary before getting on Team Romney in the general. Perhaps with his own presidential ambitions on his mind, Jindal excoriated Romney Wednesday for his “absolutely wrong” remarks.

Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist who helmed Hispanic outreach for John McCain in 2008 and worked for Jon Huntsman in 2012, was also critical of Romney through the campaign for his failure to engage minority communities. She took to her Twitter feed after “gifts” to tie the remarks to his broader shortcomings as a candidate.

Livid at Romney saying Obama won b/c offered minorities ‘gifts,”’ she wrote. “As if he didn’t alienate Hispanics enuf while running! Look in mirror, Mitt.”

David Frum, a former Bush speechwriter and longtime critic of the party’s lurch to the right, held up Romney’s latest comments as emblematic of his failed campaign.


The stench, it clings!!!!

2. It seems to me

that Mitt is secretly working for the Democratic Party.

Way to go, Mitt. Keep up the good work!

4. LOL

Who doubts that "retracted" story about Lyin calling Romney "The Stench" now?

There is no way that story was satire considering the number of GOPers taking public showers in the media to get rid of the stench. LOL

5. I doubt it. Paul "urban areas" Ryan is 100% on board with this.

Has someone asked him if he agrees?

6. Gifts, you say!?

If according to Romney (and others) that Obama promised 'minorities' cell phones and other "free" goodies to get their votes, I wonder what the hell Romney promised the Kochs and Adelson to help him become president through their substantial donations to his rancid campaign. Oh, now I remember: total domination of the United States.
