MITT WASNT ALL WRONG ABOUT GIFTS
By: Patrick J. Buchanan 11/20/2012 What the presidents 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 dont advance the debate by insulting folks.
A terrible thing to say, Chris Christie told Joe Scarborough. You cant expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive.
Oh. Was not Abe Lincoln at least mildly divisive? Did not FDR insult Wall Street folks by calling them money changers in the temple of our civilization? Was Ronald Reagan a uniter not a divider when he said, Let the bloodbath begin! and mocked welfare queens?
And Harry Truman, did he not insult and divide and win?
I just think its nuts, Newt Gingrich told ABCs Martha Raddatz of Romneys remark, kicking him again in an Austin TV interview:
Gov. Romneys analysis
is insulting and profoundly wrong.
We didnt lose Asian-Americans because they got any gifts. He did worse with Asian-Americans than he did with Latinos. This is the hardest-working and most successful ethnic group in America, OK, they aint into gifts.

He wasn’t wrong at all. I’ll remember those Monday morning statements and who stated them.
0 promised free things, paid for by Whitey.
Romney promised that he would respect hard-working people who pay for 0’s free things.
The freeloaders won.
So what happens now, as there are fewer and fewer suckers who are willing to go out and work in the cold, paying for their own gas and clothes, and who have half their pay seized by the government?
Romney was absolutely correct, and if the GOP does not find some way to stigmatize reliance on public largess as it once was they will never win another national election.
You cant expect to be the leader of all the people and be divisive.
Romney told the truth, the truth isn’t allowed in America.
Can you even imagine these low life cowardly republican SOB’s, knowing they are sitting on an incredible mountain of spending and debt, and decrying the idea that voters are getting stuff??
So why DO Asians vote Dem?
I know plenty of Asian Americans that while successful are right at the front of the line for freebies.
Freebies ARE a problem.
Anyone, anyone who disputes Romney’s statement, isn’t grounded in reality. He’s 100% correct;
“You can’t beat Santa Claus”. (Rush)
You cant beat Santa Claus. (Rush)
Come on now CH!
Everbody knows Rush is a divider! LOL
Bad, bad whiteguy, Rush!
Asians? Arent they the recipients of chain migration big time with condos and free stuff for their elderly relatives?
This is the European model - Obama executed it rather well, and we will all the price for it now. I wouldn’t be surprised if that forevermore we will have to gift voters for their vote - unless someones unwinds the entitlements - and guess what, no one will if they want to be elected.
We conservatives will be the most frustrated... how will we win elections when the other side is buying votes ? Even if the country is center right - people are going to vote with their pocketbook.... and worse still relatively few even are aware of the issues.
Thank you for perfectly stating my thought.
Sir Alexander Tytler:
Romney just stated the truth. Too bad all the others don't have the cojones to admit he's right.
Use a different demigod. Santa Claus delivers coal ~ Obama doesn’t want you to have coal. Huge difference there!
The folks who thought that lived in a time when democracy was little known beyond theories propounded in books. They certainly didn’t live in democracies.
