The only thing worse than a loser is a whiner. The only thing worse than either is a liar. Mitt Romney is a whiny loser liar.
Liar? Isn’t that a little strong? Yes it is. But it is correct. When Romney went on Univision on September 19, it was following his disastrous “47 percent” remark and he was eager to plaster over the cracks in his carefully constructed facade.
“My campaign is about the 100 percent in America. … More people have fallen into poverty. More people, we just learned, have had to go onto food stamps. … This campaign is about helping people who need help, and right now, the people who are poor in this country need help getting out of poverty.”
That sounds good. That sounds like what anyone who wants to lead the greatest country on earth should be saying to move it forward.
But that was Made Up Mitt. That was just him saying what he was told to say. That wasn’t him saying what he actually thought.
Romney spoke to his top donors Tuesday and if the words of the titular head of the Republican Party mean anything, the “new direction” for Republicans looks exactly like the same old direction. Romney boasted that he was able to raise $900 million for his run, but since he didn’t take any questions, he didn’t have to explain why with nearly a billion bucks all that bought him was one battleground state and a stomping in the electoral college.
He had other things on his mind.
With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. Free contraceptives were very big with young, college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because, as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people.
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.
“The president’s campaign 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 benefit of the doubt is no longer extended to anyone who traffics in the new conservative meme that people of color, women and the young only voted for the Black guy because they “want stuff.” It’s a patently false narrative that absolves the Republican presidential candidate and his party of the blame that is theirs for failing to make inroads with groups their policies have turned into adversaries. Romney is still waging war against the part of America he believes is made up of “takers” not makers.
The suggestion that Blacks, Latinos, Asians and young people traded their votes for a bag of candy handed out by Obama is arrogant, insulting and wrong. Romney isn’t a candidate for anything any longer and he never will be again. He’s free to say whatever he wants to and apparently he is going to no matter how ungracious, tactless or boorish it is or how much it hurts the Republican Party.
When you’re running for president you have hordes of press, a Secret Service details and thousands of people following you around. When you lose, nobody cares anymore and the GOP doesn’t care about Romney. He doesn’t have to offer any explanations. Most Republicans just want him to go away. He can keep his analysis of what went wrong to himself. Save it for the book someone will ghost write for him that nobody will read. People want to know the secrets of successful people. Who needs to learn how to know how to lose and come off like a complete asshole?
If you’re running for president it isn’t smart to get caught on tape telling your wealthy supporters how much you don’t care about anyone who isn’t wealthy and supporting you. If you’re running for president and you lose, it’s really dumb to go on tape again telling your wealthy supporters how much the niggers, wetbacks, bitches and punk kids screwed you.
President Obama was asked at his press conference if he had contacted Romney for a meeting at the White House. The president said he hadn’t spoken to his rival yet. When he does Obama should greet him with a firm handshake and a sincere smile. He should walk Romney around the Oval Office and tell him he will never ever get any closer to any of it than he is right now.
Then he should tell Romney he’s got a country to run, give him a souvenir pen, tell him where to stick it and kick his ass out.
Romney is irrelevant to American politics. Let us speak of him no more. How awful must it be to worth millions and and unable to buy even the smallest amount of class?
