It’s interesting that the candidate of the party supposedly for personal responsibility failed to mention his own shortcomings during the campaign, such as: a willingness to say anything to anyone in order to get elected, numerous position shifts, no foreign policy experience, a corporations-first vision of America that most voters don’t agree with, lack of clarity about what he planned to cut in order to pay for continued tax breaks for the rich, his “47 percent” comments (which are strikingly similar to the comments below), an immigration reform plan based on “self-deportation,” his lack of significant personal interaction with anyone who looks different than him, a giddyness to continue war despite the fact the he didn’t serve during the war of his time, and lastly, just being a pompous cyborg-douche. From Politico:
“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,” Romney said on a conference call with donors…The ‘gifts,’ according to Romney, included forgiving college loan interest, free contraceptive coverage and the part of Obamacare that allows people 26 and younger to be covered under their parents’ health care plans.
‘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 healthcare, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free healthcare worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity. I mean, this is huge,’ Romney said, the New York Times reported.
‘Likewise with Hispanic voters, free healthcare was a big plus,’ Romney added. ‘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.‘”
Well, I guess he’s back to saying “illegals” again. No core, just a whole lot of bitch inside.
