Most of you have heard by now that earlier this week, for some idiotic reason, Mitt Romney managed to insult women, minorities, immigrants and the young during a conference call with major campaign donors.
It seems Romney told those top donors that he lost the election because President Obama bestowed “gifts” upon potential voters “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community, and young people.”
“The president’s campaign, if you will, focused on giving targeted groups a big gift,” Romney said during that call to donors on Wednesday.
Well, as more facts (and recordings) emerge, Romney had a complete break with reality regarding Bill Clinton, who he claims called him about the election.
“I spoke with President Clinton the day before yesterday. He called and spent 30 minutes chatting with me. He said, ‘A week out, I thought you were going to win.’ And he said, ‘But the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan. And you know, he got a little more momentum.’ And of course he also said that when he was watching Ann speak at the Republican convention, he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party. So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted. He was very complimentary, by the way, of how well we did with middle-class voters, and he said they were surprised by how strong we were in Ohio and in other states with middle-class voters, they did exceptionally well with minorities, but white, middle-class voters, we really cleaned up with and that caught them by surprise.”
