How did President Obama get re-elected? His opponent, Mitt Romney, blames the president’s, quote, “gifts.”

 

Romney told top donors in a conference call Wednesday that his loss was largely due to the Mr. Obama’s generosity, saying—

 

“What the president’s campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively...”

“Romney said the president's campaign focused on things like free contraceptives to woo young women and amnesty for children of illegal immigrants to push Hispanics to the polls.”

And WOLO says it wasn’t just gifts that the president was pushing.

 

“During that call to donors the Republican presidential candidate also cites as a reason for his loss: the president's effort to paint him as anti-immigrant.”

 

But a correspondent for MSNBC points out gifts to minorities couldn’t be the reason the president won the quote “white state of New Hampshire, the largely white state of Iowa” or Paul Ryan’s hometown.

 

“Republicans are very disappointed by this, and there are three big reasons. First of all, this is sour grapes, like this certainly isn't gracious. Second, it's just not accurate.”

 

And the third reason? Republican Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana spells it out, saying Romney is absolutely wrong.

 

The Washington Examiner quotes him saying, “I absolutely reject that notion … I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party … If we’re going to continue to be a competitive party and win elections … we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly.  One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream, period.  No exceptions.”

 

The Hill reports Romney’s camp is considering a monthly newsletter to stay informed and possibly take part in the direction of the Republican Party and maybe even the selection of a future nominee—which, Romney says, will not be him.
