Mitt Romney: My Campaign Fell Short In Attracting Minority Voters

Mitt Romney: My Campaign Fell Short In Attracting Minority Voters

Commented Nov 16, 2013 at 07:05:21 in Politics

“Romney's problem wasn't being unable "to speak openly and effectively to minority populations."

His problem was that he DID speak to them openly and effectively. As a result, they understood his disdain and contempt for them, so they didn't support him.

"Self deportation" and "blacks just want free stuff from the government" just isn't going to get you many votes from them.”

“Explain how adjusting the rules after the election, when you KNOW that said rule adjustment benefits YOUR side isn't an ex post facto change?

What's next? Your guy loses, so you change the rules to say that whoever finishes second is the winner?

It's electioneering by Calvinball rules.”

“"I hate Obama, I hate the Democratic party's positions, please make m the Democratic nominee for US Senate."

I don't get it. I mean, if you want to vote for a candidate who doesn't like Obama, you'll just vote for McConnell.

And if you want to vote for a candidate who does like Obama and the Democrats, well, tough luck.

It's like the Ben Nelson wing of the Democratic party is now led by Joe Manchin and the likes of Alison Lundergan Grimes.”

riverhouse on Aug 3, 2013 at 16:07:11

“One, that's not exactly what Grimes is saying and, two, she is running for a seat in the Senate that will extend beyond the end of President Obama's second term. This is an election about good representation of KY, something Kentuckians do not have with McConnell.”

“If people REALLY supported these anti-abortion bills, do you think the Republicans would be sneaking them through?

Of course not.

If these measures were popular, Republicans would pass them in the full light of day and brag about it.

The fact that they have to resort to trickery and shady dealing lets you know just UNpopular these bills are.”

“I have a female friend who once saw Angelina Jolie walking in New York City. My friend said the camera doesn't do Jolie justice. Actually, what she said was "I'm not a lesbian, but I'd..."

I met Valerie Plame Wilson at a book signing. Photos and videos don't do her justice.”

“It's not "finger pointing" to point out that the guy who's critical of you today supported the exact same thing he's now criticizing.

Exposing someone's hypocrisy is setting the record straight, not "the blame game."”

“Who does Romney think he is? John McCain? The TV "news" shows have room to book only one sour grapes Republican presidential candidate, and McCain has the market cornered.”

Susan Lenard on May 18, 2013 at 12:04:57

“It is not about sour grapes, or losing an election. It is about the winner of the election not being in control of his administration. He appointed these minions, yet his response is " I didn't know", WTH, it is his job to know!
A few weeks ago, a story ran about a CVS photo shop employee putting a racial slur on a ladys receipt, everyone was saying CVS was responsible for their employees actions, and she should get millions from a lawsuit. well why don't you think Obama is responsible for his cabinet members, his sec. of state, his appointees, etc...?
At least Bush was man enough to say the buck stops here at my desk, Obama just points his finger to blame others, while saying "I didn't know", either he is the dumbest man to ever hold office or he is the greatest liar to ever hold office. You decide which.”

“The nameplate in front of Kenan Thompson playing Elijah Cummings reads "Doc Hastings." Hastings is a Republican Congressman from the state of Washington. The other guy, who's playing a Congressman is referred to as "Gowdy," but has a nameplate reading "Peter Welch." Welch is a Democrat from Vermont.”

“I don't believe Roberts is right about Massachusetts.

But even if he is, there's a HUGE difference between Roberts' claim that minorities in Massachusetts DON'T vote versus the fact that in Mississippi and other areas, local and state governments proactively PREVENT minorities from voting.

That proactive approach to keeping voter turnout low is what makes the Voting Rights Act necessary.”

“How come the report doesn't include that Davies High School is named for Judge Ronald Davies, the jurist responsible for integrating Little Rock, Arkansas's Central High School?

“Only one side is obstructionist -- ONE. The solution to one side obstructing is not "bipartisanship".

Republicans think the "problem" with voting is that too many do it.

Their strategy is simple -- fewer voters means more Republicans get elected, so reduce the number of people who are able to cast ballots.

The Republican co-chair, Ben Ginsburg, was one of the main cheaters who stuck us with Bush in 2000.

If Democrats want to ensure that everyone who is eligible gets to vote, and if Republicans want to ensure that fewer people vote because fewer votes means more Republicans in office, what's the middle ground? Where's the "bipartisan" compromise?

There isn't one.”

“What a travesty. Biggio, Morris, Bagwell, Piazza, Raines, Smith, Schilling, Martinez and Trammell CLEARLY belong in the Hall of Fame. Lofton ought to be a top tier candidate too. Argue about steroids with Clemens, Bonds, Sosa, Magwire and Palmeiro all you want, but the rest of these guys are not debatable.

What do the baseball writers think? That Biggio's 3,000 plus hits will increase over the next year? That Smith will get more saves between now and next year's vote?

You're either good enough or you're not. If you are, then the baseball writers have no business acting as phony gatekeepers using made up criteria for denying eligibility to deserving players.

And someone voted for Aaron Sele? What the hell? The only way that makes sense is if he's now a writer and voted for himself.”
