I can’t even put this into words, so I will just excerpt the Los Angeles Times article on Mitt Romney’s comments that President Obama won reelection because of the “gifts” he gave blacks, Hispanic and young voters during his first term:
Mitt Romney told his top donors Wednesday that his loss to President Obama was a disappointing result that neither he or his top aides had expected, but said he believed his team ran a “superb” campaign with “no drama,” and attributed his rival’s victory to “the gifts” the administration had given to blacks, Hispanics and young voters during Obama’s first term.
Obama, Romney argued, had been “very generous” to blacks, Hispanics and young voters. He cited as motivating factors to young voters the administration’s plan for partial forgiveness of college loan interest and the extension of health coverage for students on their parents’ insurance plans well into their 20s. Free contraception coverage under Obama’s healthcare plan, he added, gave an extra incentive to college-aged women to back the president.
Well, he had better call Cornel West, Tavis Smiley and Boyce Watkins up, because they would beg to differ on those gifts Obama gave blacks.
