Romney Is The Douchebag We All Thought He Was

From the NY Times:

Saying that he and his team still felt “troubled” by his loss to President Obama, Mitt Romney on Wednesday attributed his defeat in part to what he called big policy “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

In a conference call with fund-raisers and donors to his campaign, Mr. Romney said Wednesday afternoon that the president had followed the “old playbook” of using targeted initiatives to woo specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people.”

“In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Mr. Romney said, contrasting Mr. Obama’s strategy to his own of “talking about big issues for the whole country: military strategy, foreign policy, a strong economy, creating jobs and so forth.”

And he goes on with that blather… making the same case regarding women and contraception.

This is basically doubling down on what he said to his donors behind closed doors in Boca Raton, in the infamous "47%" comments.  He thinks certain large segments of society are freeloaders who want free stuff and President Obama gives it to them.

Fuck you, Romney.  Here's why you lost: because you can't recognize that the middle and working classes are the backbone of this country, and that people like you wouldn't be rich if you didn't profit off the labor and sweat of the 47%.  When you asshole Wall Street types fuck up the economy because of your greed, it's not you who pays through the nose; it's the 47% of people who you so callously condemn.   When you start your little wars, it's not you, Mr. Senator's Son, Mr. Vietnam forlough, who fights and dies — it's the working and middle class sons and daughter who do all the dirty work and come back with broken bodies and minds.  Do they deserve more from this country than you do?  Fuck yeah!

In other words, you elitist douchebag, you lost because you ARE an elitist douchebag.  Now it is time to prance off to the Cayman Islands, Little Lord Fauntleroy.  Begone with you.  And don't ever EVER go near a microphone or camera again.
