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.”

Those 'gifts' probably looked pretty pathetic when stacked up against what Romney was ready to give Wall Street and the 1%.

its just unbelievable to me how often Republicans are going to spin 'welfare', 'socialism', and now 'gifts'. even after they lost and the election is over they still try to spin it like its something new and so awful, when its the same exact thing as promising rich people they won't have to pay higher taxes, or big business to be deregulated. those are 'gifts' too.

its just constantly so dumb with the way they distort and spin the same shit over and over again

considering i'm more critical of the left than you ever seem to be the right i don't think i'm the one thats drinking the Kool Aid

and i'm pretty sure this article is about Republicans making a big deal out of Romney's 'gifts' comment when its the same thing as him catering to people like you and others making way more, as well as the Wall Streets, etc. where are the Dem's making similar statements right now again? quote them.

you just love to obfuscate.

Oh that was good. According to you Obama is the 2nd coming of Jebus while anyone who doesn't walk the Democratic party line must be a cold hearted idiot. You should really be a spokesperson for the party because you spew it out verbatim.

no more like you front being in the middle constantly while always attacking the left due to your personal agenda/issue with being taxed higher because you make more.

and you always seem to obfuscate how both sides are at fault equally for everything when thats not the case, and you're rarely specific on it if ever....

i've been pretty critical of some far left stuff, and even taken some stances that were right especially regarding our foreign policy. i'm definitely not far left on that.

Romney was promising to steal from the majority and redistribute it to the minority, the same thing George W Bush did when he was in office.

One things that clear is that Obama's terrible immigration law was a political move to get more votes....and it worked, sadly. Obama never should have been a serious presidential candidate in the first place 4 years ago, the guy did not have the credentials. Now, 4 years later, it's complete domestic and foreign failure, yet the majority want 4 more years like the last? Amazingly, the TERRIBLE economy wasn't as big of an issue as it should have been for voters. 4 years later, it's still all blame Bush, absolutely no accountability. And of course, with the Benghazi situation, Obama dodges the criticism he rightfully deserved because for some reason, the media still likes him. The guy is in WAY over his head, and a product of hype, but at least he's a good magician. Distracts people with his mouth so they're not looking at what he's doing with his hands.

I don't think we've had many good presidential candidates for years, and I do think it's a sad commentary. With that being said, I did like Romney and McCain and voted for both(didn't like either Ryan or Palin, though), then again, I think Joe Biden is terrible himself.

The rich have been getting gifts for many years......George Bush tax breaks.

And the Military Industrial Complex gifts of made up wars........to the tune of trillions.

And the $700 billion bailout money..........

And subsidies for the Oil Companies........


But these poor people want "free healthcare". Moochers!!!!!

Good point. The Republican's inability to put forth a worthy candidate is embarrassing.
