    Romney ~ Why I lost

    Willard did a 20 minute *racisss* phone conference with his donors today apologizing for his loss ... blaming Obama for giving gifts to all you podunks ...

    ... and of course all you wealthy people need to keep fundraising for 2016 ... and it won't be Willard ....



    Romney reflects on his loss in call with campaign donors


    http://www.latimes.com/news/politics...,5622330.story

    Mitt Romney told his top donors Wednesday that his loss to President Obama was a disappointing result that neither he nor his top aides had expected, but said he believed his team ran a “superb” campaign with “no drama,” and attributed his rival’s victory to “the gifts” the administration had given to blacks, Hispanics and young voters during Obama’s first term.


    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.

    “I am very sorry that we didn’t win,” Romney told the donors.
    “I know that you expected to win.
    We expected to win.
    It was very close, but close doesn’t count in this business.”

    It was close like in horseshoes, and the country is further apart.

    Where's the *racisss* ??

    You're as bad as Cigar posting lies, and as dumb, you both get caught.

    What's up with that ??
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    What's more, exotix is actually racist.
    They've made 2 posts so far you can read in my "Liberals Unmasked" thread in "The Hole" (at the bottom of the main page) that show blatant neo-nazism.

    What's up with what ?

    If you don't get that Romney and the entire right-wing ran probably the most racissss campaign evar ... and I'm not just talking Mexicans & Blacks and other *token-undesirables* ... as well as whites ... but they ran a racissss campaign against the young, the old, the disabled, women, men and the poor ... govt. workers on and on and on ...

    ... and listen to Bryan Fischer ... who competes with Beckerhead and Rushbo as the most vile conservative hate-froth media ... who stated today blacks & hispanics are genetically pre-disposed to socialism and communism ... therefore they would vote for Obama ...


    ... well, you don't get it ...

    The OP is way out of context. Mr. Romney was pointing out some facts, about the internet and that which political scientists already knew; yes you can buy votes and Obama did.

    Now Lib rats...Mr. Romney is now a private citizen. We know you have to demonize the individual, but not Romney, not any more.

    All you have is Boenner .....

    You know what, if someone or anybody decided they wanted to start a drive to raise the voting age back to 21 and/or take women off the voting roles YOU could be their poster child.

    I'll prob. get a warning for this, but your post was about the dumbest and most uneducated post I've ever read on this forum.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
