Still clueless and entitled

I guess he actually thinks he's good for something. Mitt Romney I mean. Here he goes blaming the people for choosing good government and the general welfare over his magnificent offer of his leadership:

Mitt Romney told his top donors Wednesday that his loss to President Obama was a disappointing result that neither he nor his top aides had expected, but said he believed his team ran a “superb” campaign with “no drama,” and attributed his rival’s victory to “the gifts” the administration had given to blacks, Hispanics and young voters during Obama’s first term.

Obama, Romney argued, had been “very generous” to blacks, Hispanics and young voters. He cited as motivating factors to young voters the administration’s plan for partial forgiveness of college loan interest and the extension of health coverage for students on their parents’ insurance plans well into their 20s. Free contraception coverage under Obama’s healthcare plan, he added, gave an extra incentive to college-age women to back the president.

Romney argued that Obama’s healthcare plan’s promise of coverage “in perpetuity” was “highly motivational” to those voters making $25,000 to $35,000 who might not have been covered, as well as to African American and Hispanic voters. Pivoting to immigration, Romney said the Obama campaign’s efforts to paint him as “anti-immigrant” had been effective and that the administration’s promise to offer what he called “amnesty” to the children of illegal immigrants had helped turn out Hispanic voters in record numbers.

LA Times

Earth to Mitt -- it turned out most of us didn't want you. You had nothing to offer to the majority of the people. Your only accomplishment has been making yourself rich by destroying other peoples' livelihoods and bilking deluded donors. Go hang out with your car elevator and shut up. It's over.
My Congresscritter gets Mitt. H/t Garance Franke-Ruta.

It still amazes me how few people on the right are capable of introspection and curiosity regarding the election. Most are in complete denial about how and why they lost. I guess you can't do any soul searching if you haven't got a soul.

He is so clueless and obviously still follows the extreme right who now are their spokespeople like Coulter, Limbaugh, Hannity. If he ever listened to anything else, he'd know what a fool he is. They live in a bubble. Obama improved programs. He didn't give gifts. Improving programs is what government should do. Someone like Romney only wants to end them. I just hope we soon quit hearing anything from him at all. He's not worth listening to.

Yeah, well Pelosi's opposition to the Iraq War was as dishonest as Romney-at-large. Ask Cindy Sheehan. Or Dennis Kucinich, whose legislation to cut off funds she blocked every step of the way.

Hi Ken - actually, to the consistent disgust of what was certainly a majority of her constituents, Pelosi never opposed the Iraq (or Afghan or "terror") war. She goes along to get along with the empire and her caucus.

Her great value is as a partisan back alley fighter for modest social welfare measures which do improve the lives of ordinary people. I appreciate that and hate her essential deference to both vulture capitalism and the war machine.

Politics is complicated, but playing counts. A Sheehan candidacy would have been helpful to push Pelosi a bit in 2006. By 2008, it was ill-timed.
