Umm, he's right. Romney won most demographics except the ones he talked about, the groups that Obama is showering free money on.

So waitwaitwait...you mean Obama won the election by promising people things that would help them????

That cheating, scheming rat bastard...

That's a nice way to say it. I prefer, Obama won the election by promising to steal more money from the minority and redistribute it to the majority than Romney did.

Obama should still reach out to Romney. Not because Romney is deserving of it, but because the GOP will say that the Dems didn't try to work with them in the next election. If Romney refuses to work with Obama after months of saying how good he is at working with Dems, it will further may the GOP look bad.

I feel like Mr Burns from the Simpsons is more in touch with the poor masses than Romney. this guy is living in another world and doesn't have windows to look into the one most people are living in

The gift Obama promised was Hope and Change and caring more about the Middle Class than his opponent.


How you can care more about the middle class than your opponent does just by saying you do is beyond me.

Romney says a lot of stupid shit, lot of bullshit too.

Luckily we are never going to have to pay any attention to the shit he says anymore

Here's a better way to spend your time than listening to Romney

Remember when Obama promised he would fix the economy? I can't believe these people fell for his bullshit again. He is a divider, yet people bought his bipartisanship myth again because of a pretty speech. We just have to admit that a large portion of the population really wants free stuff. Like O'reilly said, a lot of people feel like the system is stacked against them. It isn't, it's just an excuse for the weak and lazy to not try harder to succeed.

We now live in a country where people think that punishing success is a good thing. They think this is Robin Hood in real life. When they look at a rich person they think that person has too much! Take some away and give it to the rest of us! Instead of aspiring to be like them and working their asses off to make that happen.

They feel like the system is stacked against them, because the system is stacked against them. But just not in the way they think. It's not capitalism and free markets that are hurting them, it's government. Government obstruction of capitalism, not letting markets function that is hurting the poor the most. It feels good in the short-term when government gives you something for free, but over time this wealth redistribution will rot your economy from the inside out. Massive debts financed by an inflationary central bank will rot your economy from the inside out.

What the poor need is more CAPITALISM. You don't hear that too often on CNN. But unfortunately it won't be easy. A return to capitalism would cause massive pain in our economy at first, as we allow all the government-induced mal-investments to be purged from the system. It could take a year, 2 years, I'd guess even more. But that pain is coming ANYWAY, people. The only question is, what's waiting on the other side? A free economy and prosperity? Or an even more fascistic economy, with even more government controls, and the end of America's golden age? That's the choice we are facing. That's the precipice we are approaching.

And by the way, if the Republicans had any balls, THIS is what they'd be saying to the American people. Truth and honesty about the economy instead of trying to be a lighter version of the Democrats.

The Democrats want to go back in time too. They want to go back to post world war 2 days, where they believe high tax rates on the rich and lots of government projects like the space program created a golden age. So what's your point?

Best way to help the poor would be to deregulate professional liscensing and other barriers to entry for possible small business entreprenuers. It is probably the most harmful regulation for the poor and lower middle class but its hardly ever talked about or reported on because its an issue of state law for the most part.

Right or wrong, what the Republicans need is this kind of approach. Start talking to all of these people Romney ignores and alienates, make the case as to why your ideas are better for them. Don't just use Reagan's old welfare queen hinted racism to secure the white male vote and count your majority to win elections. The demographics of the country have shifted and will continue to do so. The old tricks won't work.

Romney stuck his foot in his mouth? What a shocker!


I'm not surprised when you consider he said these things during a conference call with people who had given him millions of dollars to defeat Obama. These are donors the next Republican candidate is going to need to pony up again. I don't think they would be placated if he simply said "hey, I fukced up".
