After an election, there’s usually a grace period where you’re supposed to cut the loser a little slack and say meaningless things like “well, he ran a good race,” and all that other patronizing crap. In return, the loser is supposed to go away so the rest of the country can move on to more important things, like who’s been sending e-mails to David Petraeus.
But Mitt Romney isn’t wasting any time showing the world that he’s still a clueless twit with a bitter streak.
According to reports in the Los Angeles Times and New York Times, the former Republican nominee said during a call with donors on Wednesday that Obama had been “very generous” in doling out “big gifts” to “the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people” as well as to women throughout his first term. Benefits such as access to “free health care,” guaranteed contraceptive coverage, more affordable student loans, and “amnesty for children of illegals,” all combined to give the president a decisive edge in popularity.
Well, I didn’t get any of those “gifts,” and neither did a whole lot of other people, but we still voted for Barack Obama anyway.
I guess when your whole life is built around greed, it’s hard to see that anyone would do something for someone else without expecting to either pay or get paid for it.
