As a blogger who is about as far left as you can get, I promised that I would lay off poor little Tink Tink (i.e. Mitt Romney) post losing the Presidential election last week. But when your own Republican party member acknowledges that your statements do not represent the party at large……I have to jump on the bandwagon. Mitt Romney has remained out of the public eye since November 6th. Mitt Romney stated that President Obama won the election by offering gifts to African-Americans, younger voters and Hispanics. In typical Mitt Romney fashion, this was communicated (privately) to his top donors on a conference call. This man did not learn from the 47% comment, that what you do in the dark will come to light. Governor Bobby Jindal publicly stated that this is not representative of the Republican party. There are some good right wingers out there after all. And to think, Jindal supported Mitt Romney’s campaign. It’s a good thing he didn’t show up to the Republican National Convention as scheduled.
For the record: Mitt Romney lost the election because he is out of touch with REALITY. You can’t cater to the top 2% of America and disregard lower and middle class America, when we account for most of the votes that will get any President elected. Earth to Mitt….the United States is a melting pot…..you dropped the ball and ruined the rest of your political career. See link below for more on this story.
