Mitt Romney: Obamacare was Very Attractive to Minority, Low-Income Voters in Helping Obama Win Reelection
Mr. 47 Percent is back and vowing not to go away. He is still clinging to his insensitive position that President Obama’s gifts helped him win reelection. Um, Mitt Romney is obviously a hard learner. He told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that the “The president had the power of incumbency, ‘Obamacare’ was very attractive, particularly to those without insurance, and they came out in large numbers to vote. So that was part of a successful campaign.” One problem with that, demographics were never on Mitt Romney’s side — blacks, Hispanics, Asians, women, LGBT — all voted for Obama in large numbers. Um, I am still waiting on my gift for voting for the black guy.
You will recall Mitt Romney shot himself in the foot during a conference call with donors after the November election when he said Obama was “very generous” in doling out “big gifts” to the “African American community, the Hispanic community and young people.” Instead of taking the high road and apologizing for saying blacks, Hispanics and young voters were bought by the Obama campaign, he dug in and now included Obamacare in the mix. He still can’t differentiate between Obamacare and Romneycare.
Romney reflected on the current sequester and the stalemate in Congress, telling Wallace that “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. It’s hard.” Kills him, tickles his critics that he didn’t win.
