Mitt Romney ran one of the most disgusting and dishonest campaigns for the Presidency that Americans have ever witnessed. The entire campaign was premised on lies too numerous to rehash. Mitt Romney deserves to be forgotten by Democrats and Republicans alike for embarrassing himself and his party by pretending that being wealthy makes you somehow a superior person.
For those of you willing to consider an olive branch to this serial liar, consider his latest comments about the election:
"The Obama campaign was following the old playbook of giving a lot of stuff to groups that they hoped they could get to vote for them and be motivated to go out to the polls, specifically the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people," Romney told hundreds of donors during a telephone town hall Wednesday. "In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups."
Romney attributes loss to 'gifts' Obama gave minorities
Oh, but wait, there's more!
"With regards to African American voters, 'Obamacare' was a huge plus — and was highly motivational to African American voters. You can imagine for somebody making $25—, or $30—, or $35,000 a year, being told you're now going to get free healthcare — particularly if you don't have it, getting free healthcare worth, what, $10,000 a family, in perpetuity, I mean this is huge. Likewise with Hispanic voters, free healthcare was a big plus."
"With regards to Hispanic voters, the amnesty for the children of illegals — the so-called Dream Act kids — was a huge plus for that voting group," he said. "On the negative side, of course, they always characterized us as being anti-immigrant, being tough on illegal immigration, and so forth, so that was very effective with that group."
"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."
Apparently Mitt Romney is still in campaign mode. After his 47% comments were widely publicized, Romney spent a great deal of time talking about how he cares about 100% of Americans. It certainly didn't take him long to admit that it was just campaign rhetoric. Congratulations to America for seeing through his clever disguise.
