Good for him for telling the truth. A month too late.
Romney took his ball and went home. No surprise there. He pulled the same shit during his last term as Gov of Mass.
Basically he's reiterating the truth he told that got overheard a few months back. This country would rather keep their free shit than have to go to work.
Did he take the hard drives this time too?
Yeah, because Obama is genuinely interested in working with him. He's the most bipartisan president in the history of bipartisan presidents. Big bad Romney must be stopped!
Romney lost the election but wins the "still doesnt get it" award.
Keep thinking this way "conservatives", its a one way ticket to irrelevancy.
Oh right. I forgot about that. That's such a dick move.
Is that in the same neighborhood as morbid obesity? Because I wouldn't want to live near you.
Irrelevance: Exhibit 1
Seems like the end of the election does not mean the end of his foot in mouth syndrome.
Yeah, keep defending Magic Bob. That'll get you far.
Didn't Romney promise free healthcare to the citizens of Massachusetts in return for electing him Governor? Hypocrites gonna Hyp.
And I will point out again that no one seems to complain when Republicans promise to keep the Medicare and Social Security flowing to seniors in exchange for their votes. Always seems to bring out the crickets around here though.
How about someone actually disprove what Romney said? It's fucking true.
No one is disputing that Obama's promising more for the lower and middle class than Romney did. But he is being disingenuous by implying that he never promised anything and that he wouldn't gladly exchange giveaways for votes. Basically he's crying that he didn't present a more attractive package to the larger demographic than Obama did.
the demographics of the votes dont support Romney's out of touch statements. Pretty simple. The poorest southern states vote republican. The red areas in the south have high "entitlement" participation, but yet they vote for Romney. So to say that its those that have been "promised" something and they vote for Obama is false. Romney lost the female vote. Doesnt matter if it was rich, poor, north, south... he lost it. Why? Just maybe it could have something to do with when asked about equal pay for women saying that his idea was to give them flexible work hours so they could get home in time to cook dinner. Yeah, perhaps that had something to do with it.
As has been pointed out by even the most hard core "conservatives"... Romney lost the election by being tone deaf to what the country really wanted... a fiscal conservative and and social moderate. Romney also lost the election by making "conservatism" nothing more than the opposite of whatever the "liberals" say they are for. If it comes from the other side, it has to be baaaaaaaaad. Thats not what "conservatism" is. And he lost votes because of it.
but feel free to keep blaming the voters for it. That will get you far. It has nothing to do with the failed message and tone of the Republican campaign... nahhhhh that CANT be it... it has to be the that voters got it all wrong... Pardon me is that the Irrelevancy Choo-Choo?... Track 2016
Well some GOPers are growing balls and are starting to stand up to the extreme right within their party:
Guess not all GOPers are brain dead zombies.
On the other hand, Jindal is against volcano monitoring and for letting heavy construction equipment get sunk in the ocean.
Ok you got me, I spoke to soon, I confess.
It's "extreme right" to tell the truth that the parasite class got Obama elected? Hardly.
With such a powerful argument you just convinced me.
Nothing I say is going to cure your class envy and desire for free shit.
So, really? I get nothing? No mention, no nod? Or did no one really notice, so eager were you all to start frothing?
sshhhhh... we are busy teasing the retard. Dont rooon it with your man on man fantasies
I have neither of those things, and I still can see that if you want to get elected, you don't tell half the country that they're a bunch of freeloaders. And don't start that "it hurts to hear the truth" horseshit, either. It's a massive exaggeration, both in numbers and in severity.
