The Mitt Romney purge is underway at record speed. There’s nothing about Mitt Romney’s failed presidential campaign that any potential candidates on either side of the aisle would like to emulate and with good reason. The man was a walking disaster area that we would be best served to erase from memory. He ran on nothing and seriously misjudged the majority of American voters.

Ben Smith: “There appears to be no Romney Republicanism to propagate. No Romney strategy to emulate. No Romney technology to ape. No generation shaped by his failed effort. And no Romney infrastructure to inherit, though he may still be asked to write and bundle quite a few checks…”

“Romney is being erased with record speed from his party’s books for three reasons. First, many Republicans backed him because they thought he had a good chance of winning; that appeal, obviously, is gone. Second, Romney had shallow roots, and few friends, in the national Republican Party. And those shallow roots have allowed Republicans to give him a new role: As a sort of bad partisan bank, freighted with all the generational positions and postures that they are looking to dump.”

Mitt Romney won’t be remembered for running a technologically driven campaign but one that managed to insult and alienate a big chunk of Americans, including blacks, Hispanics, women, the gay community and young voters. He will be the butt of jokes in the near future and dismissed as a man whose only ambition was to ascend the presidency. He will be mocked for his attack on Big Bird, binders full of women, dismissing 47 percent of Americans as deadbeats,  shameful lie about Chrysler outsourcing Jeep jobs to China, refusing to release more than a year and one-half of tax returns, stashing a big chunk of his money in offshore bank accounts, claiming President Obama won reelection because of gifts to blacks, Hispanics and young voters, his wife owning a couple Cadillacs and many more memorable lines and lies from the campaign trail.

He’s baaaack! Newt Gingrich that is. The former presidential candidate lacerated Mitt Romney on his comment about Obama won because he gave gifts to blacks, Hispanics and young voters. Gingrich zinged Romney, telling  Evan Smith that his explanation was “insulting and profoundly wrong.”  Gingrich said,

“He had enough billionaire supporters that if buying the electorate was the key, he could have got all of his super PAC friends together and said, ‘Don’t buy ads, give gifts.’”

Franklin Graham’s Pity Party Continues: Mitt Romney Lost Because Majority of Christians Didn’t Vote

 Franklin Grahams Pity Party Continues: Mitt Romney Lost Because Majority of Christians Didnt Vote

Franklin Graham’s Pity Party Continues: Mitt Romney Lost Because Majority of Christians Didn’t Vote (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Rev. Franklin Graham, like Mitt Romney, is wearing out his welcome. He is now saying Mitt Romney lost the presidential election because the majority of Christians didn’t go out to vote. Um, really? I’m a Christian and I voted for Barack Obama.

Franklin Graham told David Brody: “We know that from of the statistics that I’ve heard that the majority of Christians in this country just did not vote for whatever reason. The vast majority of evangelicals did not go to the polls. God is in control, and if Christians are upset, they need to be upset at themselves. We need to do a better job of getting our people- the church to vote. Now, I’m not trying to tell you how to vote, you can vote, but vote, my goodness, and vote for candidates that stand for Biblical values.”

First Read: “But Graham’s assertion — and implication that had white Christian evangelicals just showed up in bigger numbers, President Obama would have lost — is off base. In fact, white evangelicals/born-again Christians made up the same percentage of the electorate as they did in 2008 – 26%. They voted for Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, by a wider margin than they did for Sen. John McCain four years ago.”

LA Gov. Bobby Jindal Rejects Mitt Romney’s Gifts Explanation as to Why He Lost Election

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal repudiates Mitt Romney’s claims that he lost the presidential election because of gifts President Obama doled out to blacks, Hispanics and young voters.  Um, where’s my gift Mr. President? This just plays right into Mitt Romney’s 47 percent of Americans are deadbeats comments. Just shows he really meant what he said. Here’s Bobby Jindal’s take:

Politico:  Gov. Jindal: “No, I think that’s absolutely wrong. Two points on that: One, we have got to stop dividing the American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.”

“And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.”

When Bobby Jindal is the voice of reason, you know the Republican Party is in bigger trouble than it cares to admit. Where are all the black Republicans? Are you going to sit there and allow Mitt Romney and the GOP clown car to continue to insult us as a people?

Mitt Romney: Obama Won Because of “Gifts” He Gave Blacks, Hispanics and Young Voters

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.

Author Terry McMillan Tweets: “I Prayed President Obama Would Slay Mitt, 332-206 Electoral Votes Qualifies as Slain”

“How Stella Got Her Groove Back” author Terry McMillan tweets: “I prayed President Obama would slay Mitt Romney.” Of course, Terry McMillan was referring to Electoral College votes, but we know the right wing will take offense. McMillan’s tweet came after President Obama won Florida after the voter count was completed.

Terry McMillan also tweeted though she’s in the top one percent, she wants President Obama to stick to his guns on raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans:

Dead Pig Clad in Mitt Romney T-Shirt Left at GOP Campaign Office in Manhattan Beach CA

A dead pig, clad in a Mitt Romney t-shirt was left at a Republican campaign office in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

Manhattan Beach Police had to discard the pig’s head and its feet in a trash bin, but not before several passersby saw it.

“I thought it was a dead body because of the way he approached it,” said Manhattan Beach resident Andy Gaeta. “And then when he lifted the shirt, he saw the head wrapped in barbed wire and it’s cut in half, the whole skull was. It looked like something from a butcher’s market.”

The pig was laid out at the doorstep of the Republican headquarters on Highland Avenue.

The right wing must be really proud because protests over President Obama’s reelection erupted at another institution of higher learning — Hampden-Sydney College. According to the Huffington Post, about 40 students shouted racial slurs, threw bottles and set off fireworks outside the Minority Student Union hours after President Obama won the presidential election.

Hampden-Sydney College President Chris Howard said in an email to parents Thursday that the disturbance early Wednesday also included threats of physical violence.

Howard is the college’s first African-American president. He said in the email that he was disappointed in the “harmful, senseless episode” and that bigotry has no place on the campus of 1,080. About 9 percent are black. Source

Well, the same thing erupted at the University of Mississippi, that has had an ugly past of overt racism, that led to the National Guard coming out to ensure the safety of its first black student James Meredith.

Toesucker Dick Morris: “I’ve Got Egg on My Face” After Predicting Romney Landslide

Dick Morris has egg all over his face after predicting a Mitt Romney landslide in the presidential election. Um, did anyone even believe this windbag, who has been so wrong many, many times in the past. He said he underestimated the high levels of black and Hispanic turnout, as well as the effect of Hurricane Sandy. Whatever, dude. Whatever Mr. Toesucker:

I’ve got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker.

The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to “normal” levels. Didn’t happen. These high levels of minority and young voter participation are here to stay. And, with them, a permanent reshaping of our nation’s politics.

In 2012, 13% of the vote was cast by blacks. In 04, it was 11%. This year, 10% was Latino. In ’04 it was 8%. This time, 19% was cast by voters under 30 years of age. In ’04 it was 17%. Taken together, these results swelled the ranks of Obama’s three-tiered base by five to six points, accounting fully for his victory.

I derided the media polls for their assumption of what did, in fact happen: That blacks, Latinos, and young people would show up in the same numbers as they had in 2008. I was wrong. They did.

But the more proximate cause of my error was that I did not take full account of the impact of hurricane Sandy and of Governor Chris Christie’s bipartisan march through New Jersey arm in arm with President Obama. Not to mention Christe’s fawning promotion of Obama’s presidential leadership.

It made all the difference. Source

Yeah, tell Rush Limbaugh that Romney landslide he predicted didn’t happen. Sandra Fluke is getting the last laugh. I wonder if Karl Rove and Donald Trump have come up for air yet? All that money Rove, Dick Armey, Sheldon Adelson and the pro-Romney super PACs spent was in vain. LOL.
