Mitt Wasn't All Wrong About "Gifts"

You cannot command a high salary unless you can give complex answers to simple questions. You have heard all the complex answers. The simple answer is this: To the masses who elected Obama their lives are not expected to change. He did not ask them to inconvenience themselves, go meatless on fridays, pick up the fast food wrappers, ANYTHING! Obama was the kick the can president pretending the day of reckoning would never come. Thats what we have always done and that is what the public wants to keep doing. Anything you do to try to slow the runaway train means pain! Cut federal spending, someone's check gets smaller. Even waste, fraud and abuse creates payroll. No one wants to eliminate even that. No pain Obama!

People were afraid Romney WOULD try to change things. None of that now!
"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...
