I actually felt sorry for him after seeing the look on his face when he lost. He's an elitist scumbag born with a silver spoon. I'm glad he lost.

LAS VEGAS--Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal criticized former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday for saying that he lost the 2012 election to President Barack Obama in part because Democrats promised "gifts" to minority groups, calling Romney's remarks "absolutely wrong."
Yes.

It's hard for me to understand why the election was so close.

Romney and the truth are mortal enemies. If he had told the truth on that call it would have gone like this...

I lost because I was a lousy candidate who could never be counted on to have a shred of integrity. I tried very hard to be as dishonest as possible in order to pander...to everyone, but the majority of voters saw right thru my mendacity. I counted on racists, birthers, old white men and bible thumpers to elect me, but that sorry a$$ populace was no match for the 47%. I chose an Ayn Rand scorched earth worshipping self-serving VP pick to pander to the Tea Party nitwits that wanted to decimate Medicare while lying as easily as I do about his budget intentions. I was repulsive to women voters because I adamantly stated that I would onverturn Roe v. Wade and did not support equal pay. I ship jobs to China and refuse to put any tax money back into the nation that has been better to me than I ever deserved. I lied to the people of Ohio and therefore insulted them, because they knew the truth about the auto industry. I tried my damndest to run an election that surpressed voting rights, but to no avail. I surrounded myself with toxic Bushies including Karl Rove and we all know how that worked out. Again, sorry your money wound up in the toilet, but that is what you get when you financially support a POS that does not have the backbone to admit that the best man won.

I thought Rommey disavowed his "47%" comments? but here he is, basically repeating them, for the same crowd of well-healed donors.

Funny, cuz I always thought that, on the 47% tape, it was the only time during the whole campaign that you could tell Romney was really speaking with conviction. The only time the "real" Romney was on display.

America made the RIGHT CHOICE. I said it a year ago on these boards, and I'll say it again: NOBODY LIKES A PHONEY!

Someone on TV today compared a clip of Romney talking about the so-called free gifts with a clip of Rush's made the day before and Mitt was parroting Rush almost as if they were reading from the same script. I can't believe that Mitt isn't taking any responsibility for mistakes he and his campaign made. The head one of his state campaign even blamed the loss on voter fraud. And my favorite is Ryan's claiming it was because the Democrats turned out too many voters.

I think I could add to this, but I'm losing my enthusiasm for talking about the nudnik. We now have the next election to deal with.
