...to, you know, the 47%.

In a conference call on Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

My deepest apologies to the Romany community, especially since Romney would lump them into the 47%, too.

OK, so the Republicans have insulted African Americans, Latinos, young people, women, and, as part of the 47%, Social Security/Medicare recipients and veterans.

Laying the groundwork for 2016.

No matter what you say or do, you can't fix stupid.

I think Romney doesn't represent GOP or conservatives with these comments. He rented the republican platform to achieve his ambition. He has a problem admitting he didn't succeed and instead coming up with these non-sense.

For the record, Jindal already slammed these remarks.

Perhaps it is time for Romney to take personal responsibility for his failure, if not he would be seen as part of the 47% that he slammed.

Mitt had it absolutely correct. He should have not called them gifts though; instead, free s&it. Gimme my free s&it and I'll vote for you.

JoshRandall opines:

Yes siree, that will sure lock up the Hispanic, black, youth, and Asian voters for Republicans. Call them lazy freeloaders whose votes can be bought.

On the other hand, I think the Republican strategy of holding America hostage to make sure that billionaires continue to get free s&it is a winning hand.

Keep up the good work.

Let's say Romney is indeed correct. The guy was screwed. He was raped. But he got the gift part wrong. There was a gift involved all right ... But as a Republican, Romney should recognize that, having been raped, he is the recipient of a gift, a gift from God.

Compare this statement from the recording:

With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift.

with this one from the debate:

So what we have to do is two things. We have to make sure that we make it easier for kids to afford college and also make sure that when they get out of college there's a job. When I was Governor of Massachusetts, to get a high school degree you had to pass an exam. If you graduated in the top quarter of your class, we gave you a John and Abigail Adams Scholarship: 4 years tuition free to the college of your choice in Massachusetts; it's a public institution.

I want to make sure we keep our Pell grant program growing. We're also going to have our loan program so that people are able to afford school.

Interesting contrast isn't it? In the debates he was bragging about how he gave all these gifts to college students and wanted to do more, but behind doors he was griping about them (again). Romney was either lying to his donors or lying to the public.

Jindal was right to push back against these comments. But what is Jindal saying behind closed doors? Romney didn't raise a billion dollars by making pitches his donors didn't want to hear.

Definitely a poor loser. McCain had the dignity to deal with his loss - not Romney and his group. Ryan was even worse - "The President doesn't have a mandate".

Romney and the "truth" is more transparent than Obama will ever be!

I think you haven't checked RECF or ConFools lately...they're doubling down on this, and it's become their mainstream. Check the post right after yours in this thread. Yes, Romney does represent the GOP and conservatives with these comments.

For the record, Jindal already slammed these remarks.

Jindal is about to learn what the acronym RINO means. Who is he, anyway? He's not white enough to be lecturing good Republicans on their behaviour.

Is it still a legimate insult, if by and large it tends to be true?

I'm just wondering who's getting all the "free health care" Romney kept talking about...

Go to most any County Hospital or free health center in California, say Los Angeles, and take some notes.


It's an education.
