Big difference between gifts and help.

A parent giving a child unlimited candy, toys and gifts does "nothing" for them, except make them spoiled brats.

And? What's your point? How does that change the fact that Republicans said one thing about Blacks and now they're saying the opposite? How about you guys pick a side...

So explain it in the context of the two opposing talking points coming from Republicans... Obama has done nothing for Blacks, but he's given them gifts? You guys have already established that you don't think something that benefits society as a whole (like a growing economy) counts as something for Blacks, so why does healthcare reform suddenly constitute a "gift?"

Lol... seems even one of the few sane voices in your party thinks you're full of ish: http://www.politico.com/news/stories...892.html?hp=r2

No, Mittens, the "47%" you disparaged in your little talk with the big money donors is what kept you out of the White House.

And just maybe, the smart ones among the voters saw your little lame "rally" for the storm victims (where your aides bought 5K worth of food to give to your supporters to give back to you) for the blatant propaganda ploy that it was.

Or, maybe, they just didn't like your "broaden the tax base" idea that failed back in the 80's when Reagan did it.

Or, better still, they didn't like you or your magic underwear.

Sour grapes after an losing an election. So much for class.

Romney assume he was going to win. It is all part of his entitlement mentality. He cannot accept that the reasons he lost were entirely due to himself and his party. So he has to go looking for scapegoats.

Clearly Romney has difficulty accepting personal responsibility for his defeat.

Hey .... Mitt .... I will let you into a secret ........... You lost because you simply were not good enough.

Like a refund from an insurance company that ripped you off a long time ago is "free stuff"
ha ha, there's a new sheriff in town people, and he might give you back your money, fancy that!
I must admit, it's against the grain.

Don't worry, Romney will grab any free money that comes his way, you'll never know and he'll say he won't, but he will.

What about the rich people and the bush tax cuts??? he doesn't consider those "gifts"???

What does the GOP consider "gifts"???
Minimum Wage?
Equal Pay?
Abortion?
Affordable college tuition?
Health Care?
FEMA?
Big Bird?

Romney pretty much confirmed that he meant what he said in that 47% video. I think we dodged a HUGE bullet here folks. Thanks God President Obama won the election. I hope I don't have to hear the GOP whine like baby's about why they were humiliated at the polls this election. "It's not our fault, it's someone else's" they are all too old to be "sore losers". Keep this up republicans and you will never see the white house again.

Mr. Romney and his supporters will never get it. They simply refuse to accept that voting for the person whose political views are similar to your own is sort of the point of the whole process.
Only they understand the greater good, which apparently consists only of endowing those already extraordinarily well-off with additional means to become even more well-off.
They ignore the struggles of past generations that have given them the freedom to have decent working hours and safe living conditions.

The largest point they miss is this:

"A final point: President Obama backing the DREAM Act or contraception coverage is not a nakedly political gesture, it is a matter of policy difference. Addressing the needs and desires of people is not a bribe or a government gift to be exchanged for a vote. It is part of the purpose of representative government as conservative forefather Edmund Burke himself once envisioned: “Government is a contrivance of human wisdom to provide for human wants. Men have a right that these wants should be provided for by this wisdom.”"

The Final Insult: Mitt Romney

Conveniently ignoring the HUGE fiscal impact of Obamacare, and the devastating unemployment that will arise from taxing the rich and Obamacare's impact on businesses.

Also conveniently attacking Romney's pals, who pay the LEGAL amount of taxes. And ignoring the tax dollars being funneled to Obama's cronies in the name of "green energy investment".

Hardly a big defeat. More like "won by a very small margin".

That's OK, though. Because the Dems are about to learn their lesson in economics. The hard way.
