Posted by Lance Dickie Sorry Gov. Romney, you got whipped on Election Day, and it had nothing to do with “gifts” to voters from President Obama.
Your crushing defeat was all about you.
Romney’s “I’ve got mine” demeanor came through loud and clear to voters. Those infamous remarks recorded at a fundraiser about the 47 percent of Americans he described as freeloaders captured the essence of the man. Those sentiments echoed in a conference call with reporters a week after the election.
Obama did not win a second term, Romney implied, he bought it with political inducements for difference groups. Obama’s improved access to health care? Just a ruse to attract young voters and minorities. Right, no sense that millions of Americans are without insurance and cannot get to a doctor. Nope, that would never cross Mitt’s mind. Health insurance was all a ploy.
