While the president today in a press conference stated his desire to work with Mitt Romney, the failed politician who vied for the presidency decided it would be a good opportunity to discuss all the “gifts” the president gave out to the electorate for their vote. Oh, yeah, he meant specifically to minorities.
“The President’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift—so he made a big effort on small things,” Romney told donors on a conference call, first reported by Maeve Reston of the L.A. Times. “Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.”
Oh, what an awesome display of bitter jackassery.
So what does old Mittens the Wise mean when he talks about these gifts? Oh, you know, as the LA Times reports, “college loan forgiveness and the ability to go on parents’ health insurance plans. Gifts like “amnesty” for children of illegal immigrants and health care coverage “in perpetuity.”
And guess who he was talking to when he made these statements about all these minorities – to use Bill O’Reilly’s term – who wanted “things and stuff” like healthcare – his donors.
Oh, yes. You have to find a way to square away squandering huge craploads of cash on the flawed promise that you would indeed be president even though there was every indication that no, you in fact would not be. Gotta blame somebody. Paul Ryan has already rested the defeat on the shoulders of record turnout in “urban areas.” For all you rubes out there that’s code for BLACK PEOPLE! HISPANICS! AND ANY OTHER NON-WHITE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN BLACK SPANISH BULLET TOWN!
So now Mitt Romney is following suit by telling his donors that it’s the whimsical desires of the minorities to be able to live and afford things in this country that made him lose his coveted “You’re The Best President Ever”coffee mug and pinkie decoder ring.
Meanwhile President Obama today reiterated his hopes of working with Mitt Romney sometime in the future reports ABC News.
“He presented some ideas during the course of the campaign that I actually agree with. And so it’d be interesting to talk to him about something like that,” Obama said. ”There may be ideas that he has with respect to jobs and growth that can help middle-class families that I want to hear.”
But Obama added, “I’m not either prejudging what he’s interested in doing, nor am I suggesting I’ve got some specific assignment. But what I want to do is to is to get ideas from him and see if there are some ways that we can potentially work together.”
Hmm, I don’t know, president, sir. Sounds a lot like Mitt Romney would like to still see much of the 47%, or at least the minority part of it, die in the streets. This guy is still existing in the weird right-wing bubble. Do those guys ever open the door to that thing, you know, to let in some air or truth? It’s got to smell like lies and delusion in there. We’re guessing that smells like Karl Rove and Donald Trump back sweat.
At any rate #Obamagifts is now a thing on Twitter, so there’s that.
