Mitt Wasn't All Wrong About "Gifts"

Romney, to a certain degree, was right but the real word is not "gifts" it is "pandering." The pandering was not just about money or stuff. It was also about other issues like abortion, daycare, education, immigration, jobs, etc. Obama is a community organizer which means he is a rabble rouser who knows how to count. He focused on each demographic group and pandering to them with either a promise or accused Romney as someone who will take something away. Obama focused on a specific concern to a vulnerable feeling group and hammered away, then he got these single issue folks to the polls. This approach wins elections, but then leaves the country heavily divided, ungovernable, and heading for bankruptcy.

Well said.. Obama continues to pander those who want free stuff or special rights. Bill O'Reilly got into it last night when Juan Williams claimed the lower income people who voted for Obama weren't voting for freebies. He asked, Did they vote for 8% unemployment? Did they vote for 16Trillion in debt? Did they vote for for all of the other Obama failures? No. They voted their own interests.

California has mortgaged itself to pay for the massive influx of low skilled Hispanics and the subsequent generations who have come to learn it';s easier to get freebies than to work. While maybe the original immigrants came to work they were easily corrupted. Then to hear DHS is promoting illegals getting benefits we know what's happening.
"What the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked."

Thus did political analyst Mitt Romney identify the cause of his defeat in a call to disconsolate contributors.

Republicans piled on. "Completely unhelpful," Gov. Bobby Jindal told Wolf Blitzer. We don't advance the "debate by insulting folks."

"A terrible thing to say," Chris Christie told Joe Scarborough. "You can't expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive."

Oh. Was not...
