Romney says Obama won by showering black, Latino & young voters with big gifts.

Romney says he "hadn't anticipated" losing, says Obama won by showering black, Latino & young voters with "big gifts": http://nyti.ms/QepNTM

Quote:
In a conference call on Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

“In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Mr. Romney said.
Quote:
“With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest, was a big gift,” he said. “Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people. They turned out in large numbers, a larger share in this election even than in 2008.”

Jindal slams Romney for 'gifts' comment about minorities, young voters

Posted by
CNN's Ashley Killough and Kevin Bohn

(CNN) – Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana fiercely shot back at Mitt Romney’s claim Wednesday that President Barack Obama outmatched the 2012 Republican presidential nominee by offering "gifts" to African-Americans, Hispanics and young voters.

“I absolutely reject that notion,” Jindal, who was a surrogate for Romney’s campaign, said at the Republican Governors Association conference in Las Vegas. “I think that's absolutely wrong.”

– Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker

“I don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party,” he continued. “That has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election.”

...

But Jindal, when asked about Romney’s remarks, said in order for the GOP to be “competitive,” it has to “go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.”

Jindal’s criticism seemed to take latent swipes at Romney’s “47%” comments that were secretly recorded earlier this year. At a May fund-raiser, Romney argued that nearly half of Americans were “victims” who were “dependent” on the government. Those voters, he argued, sided with Obama.

...

Romney's remarks come after top Republicans in recent days have pushed for a bigger tent party, saying the GOP learned this election that it has work to do in terms of demographic changes.

"We've got to be a lot more inclusive and open and energetic and wanting people to join our team by expressing why these conservative values are good for people of all races, creeds, colors, and national origin," Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, previously a top surrogate for Romney, said last week on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront."

It's comments like this that the republican party has to steer clear of.

It's a new age, and unless the GOP gets with the times, they are one and done. Adapt or get adapted, there is no in between and there is no way to succeed without doing so.

Notice how quick Governor Jindal jumped up to disown Mittens' bullshit. They realize it's stuff like this that got their asses handed to them in the recent election. Willard's vag still has sand stuck in it after Barack ran the board on the swing states and now he might have to start paying some real taxes. He'll be less sour with time, all part of the healing process.

That's the issue. Conservatives cannot accept change and are unwilling to include people that may be different than they are. They don't accept the fact that different people have different opinions; you don't have to agree with anyone but at least respect the differences in opinion.

Until that happens, it will be a blame game for them like Romney here. Guy lost the election and must come up with a reason or some groups of people to blame. Does he not understand that blacks/latinos are both minorities, and they combined do not even come close to outnumbering whites? If every white went with Romney and every black/latino went with Obama, Romney would have won the election by a huge blowout margin. It clearly wasn't the case.

As for students - what the hell is Romney mumbling about? forgiveness of college loan interest? What? Students still have to pay their loans and still have interest rates from previous college bills. Isn't it frozen at 3.4%? 3.4% is not the same as no interest rates on college bills. As a college student, I feel insulted with the blatant lie here by Romney.

You lost, Romney. Get over it.

He was probably ordered to disown those comments too. I guarantee you over the course of the next several years you're going to see the republican party doing some serious overhauling of their party and their image. The shit isnt flying anymore, and public perception of them is in the all time crapper. Romney certainly isnt helping with BS like this here.

President was going to consult Romney on some policy crap. Prob won't happen until he admits that he lost by a huge margin

lmfao romney is killing his own party with this continuous quotes

Does he not care about the future welfare of the GOP?

This isn't helping, Romney. I assure you that your republican friends will agree with me.

Stop creating a rift between the rightwing and minorities and now even young voters. This quote is COMPLETELY INSANE. Why keep pushing people out of your party?

We can only pray...

Gotta control senate and congress. Hopefully we can get all those conservatives out of the supreme court as well.

Forward.

GOP isnt done. They just have some serious damage control, and need to overhaul their image as of late. Comments like this are EXACTLY wtf people are talking about though.

And if Romney won, it would have been by showering rich people with gifts.
