Romney Campaign Adviser Throws Mitt Under The Bus
Republicans are really polite until they're not.
Carlos Gutierrez, Romney campaign adviser in charge of Hispanic outreach was also “shocked” by Romney’s comments about the Obama victory.
“I was shocked. I was shocked and, frankly, I don’t think that’s why the Republicans lost the election, why we lost the election. I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong,” he said.
“We are the party of prosperity, of growth, of tolerance,” Gutierrez said. “I mean, these immigrants who come across and what they do wrong is they risk their lives, they come here and they work because they want to be part of the American dream.”
Noting the Republicans’ growing disenchantment with Romney, the Washington Post suggested that “ten days after failing to sail into the White House, Mitt Romney is already being tossed overboard by his party”.
“The Republican candidate who attracted $1 billion in funding and 59 million votes in his bid to unseat President Obama – has rapidly become persona non grata to a shellshocked Republican Party, which appears eager to map out its future without its 2012 nominee,” it said.
