Mitt Romney Blames Presidential Loss on 'Gifts' for Poor People & Other Out-of-Touch Nonsense

OMG 78

Mitt RomneyMitt Romney will never be president of the United States, and after his incredibly clueless, insanely out-of-touch remarks to campaign donors explaining "why," we should all be endlessly grateful for that fact. The rest of the country saw through this man's lies, delusions, and selfish comments. Thank goodness.

Romney's latest is that President Obama won because of all the "gifts" he gave to minorities. These "gifts" included things like health care and education. Wow. If I didn't loathe him before, I sure as hell do now.

Let's run his remarks through a translator, shall we? See below:

You can imagine for somebody making $25,000 or $30,000 or $35,000 a year, being told you’re now going to get free health care, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free health care worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity -- I mean, this is huge. Likewise with Hispanic voters, free health care was a big plus. But in addition with regards to Hispanic voters, the amnesty for children of illegals, the so-called Dream Act kids, was a huge plus for that voting group.

Translation: All those insanely poor people can now actually have medical care. Darn! I was kind of hoping they would all die and then the rich could really party. Also, I am KIND of a racist. Just a little. I just don't feel comfortable calling Hispanic people "people," so I would prefer to call them "illegals," which is not only politically incorrect, it's also borderline evil.

I’m very sorry that we didn’t win. I know that you expected to win, we expected to win, we were disappointed with the result, we hadn’t anticipated it, and it was very close, but close doesn’t count in this business.

Translation: Back when I was running, this many Electoral College votes was a "blow-out," but now that I'm not, let's just say it was "close." My followers are idiots. After all, they believed I was going to win when all the unbiased polls said otherwise.

Romney has proven over and over that he is a selfish, out-of-touch man. Having money doesn't bother me as long as the person also recognizes that they have it and what that means for them.

This whole notion that those of us on the left are "moochers" is laughable. We just believe in social safety nets so that people can have things like health care and education subsidized and possibly have all those opportunities Romney takes for granted when he says things like: "borrow money from your parents!"

It's one thing to be rich. It's another to be out of touch. The latter is dangerous in a president and I am so glad this man didn't win.

Do these comments offend you?

Seriously?  I get that you're not a fan of Romeny, but come on.  At least report based on facts for once. 


The healthcare is not FREE.  And guess who has to pay for it???  WE DO!  Or did you think Tinkerbell was going to sprinkle fairy dust on all the doctors to make them work for free? 


He said "illegals" because he was referring to everyone that is residing in this country without permission - not just latinos.  There are plenty of others that refuse to go through the proper channels. 


Your articles are nothing but fabricated dribble.

MENSA... MENSAmamma

He's exactly right. A democracy only works until people learn they can vote themselves money. That is a theory that has been observed in past civilizations, and it's exactly what's happening now. This is Obama's plan, it always has been. Government dependence is a form oppression. Not that I expect 99% of anyone on here to understand that...

I have been saying since the election ended there are just as many crappy rub it in your face winners if not more then the sore losers. The people say they want unity...articles like this keep the division going... this is not coming together...it's you giving glorification to the fact that many are struggling...not just the people that are in the lower paid spectrum... that we now get to pay for their health insurance. My husband and I do not have college educations and we have worked hard to get where we are...and we are being forced to take care of others... a forced government given charity...while we struggle to pay for our own benifits that have gone up in the last two years at least 35% in premiums...so as usual sit behind desk in your cushy blogger chair... write away... make your money so you can pay for them also...

Real classy billsfan.



For those of you worried about paying other people's medical expenses...you do realize that your government spends more on healthcare than those countries with socialized medicine don't you?? So essentially, you're already paying yet it still doesn't cover everyone. I'm Canadian and I simply cannot fathom a society that thinks people should lose their houses over life saving medical expenses.

Jaga, Sasha has written now 5 articles rubbing it in. And almost every liberal commenter, screams "get over it" while rubbing it in. Arent you tired of "lets kick Mitt while he is down" articles? I mean seriously. I get it, your side won. Now that his Obamacare will go in effect, my insurance is now going up 90 dollars a month. My high deductible plan went from 1800 dollars to 3600 dollars. I am in tears because I cannot afford it. Gas prices near dollars here. Our heat has gone up. And it goes on and on. So stop telling me to "get over it". I am over the election, not this presidency.

2cents, your socialized medicine is not "free".

Awww sasha, you had my comment deleted. I guess free speech applies to only you.

Sasha, you wrote a hateful article. You have written hateful articles since your man won, and yet you get offended and have my comment deleted. But I bet you let others attack the republicans and nasty stuff, but you wont have them removed.

I'm sorry, where did I say its free? I pay my medical expenses via taxes which are probably less than you pay for insurance. I also have the peace of mind knowing that my family will not go bankrupt if an unforeseen medical event were to happen. Seems to me that the only people happy with US healthcare are the insurance companies who are making millions if not billions per year.
