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."
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.
