President Elect Romney—They Never Saw It Coming Because They Did Not View Obama Voters As Equals

Above is a picture from the Romney President Elect website that was up for a brief time.

It seems the Romney campaign never saw the defeat coming.

This is no surprise at all.

Mr. Romney and Paul Ryan were clear that they saw a large portion of the nation as nothing but lazy moochers.

The nearly all-white party they led denied the seriousness of rape in a view shared by Paul Ryan.

How could such righteous men be defeated?

The idea of defeat was apparently so unlikely that it was not even considered.

Yet in the end Romney-Ryan were defeated by a diverse coalition of non-persons, and people so lazy that they got to polls is sufficient numbers to carry the day.

  1. A large part of the nation Is a bunch a lazy moochers…that’s why we have so many on food stamps. One would think that if they could afford drugs, they could afford groceries, right? Or how about this: It’s not ok to drug test the people on food stamps who don’t work, but for the people who DO work, it’s sometimes mandatory. Of course the lazy people got to the polls….otherwise they may have gotten their food stamps cut off! When are people going to wake up in this country????? Yes, I am pissed.

  2. Somewhere in a galaxy far, far away (on the planet Kolub), millions of sets of magic underwear have been soiled.

  3. Early in the campaign I gave Romney very serious consideration as I am not fully supportive of Obam’a performance. With each passing week I became more disillusioned with Romney and his wife. Early on Romney bragged about locating a missing girl with his resources and knowledge which was conceited and self congratulatory. This was followed by Ann Romney stating “she never felt rich”. Wonder which day of her days she have to decide between buying a gallon of milk or a pound of hamburger? Romney follows with $200,000 to $250,000 annually is what he considers middle class. Try less than $10,000 annually. Mrs. Romney told reporters re; tax returns that they had given “you people” all they were going to as though speaking to a whole different segment of human beings. Of course then came the infamous 47% of victims, the binders full of women, the fact that he keeps his money overseas, an dother condescending remarks. They are arrogant and condider themselves superior and holie rthan thou. I lost all interest in him and he is the one who caused the about face-not the media or the Dems.

  4. Rascism, Sexism, Homophobism, and Xenophobia are the typical mentalities of many Republicans! They just don’t realize that the American Family consists of all peoples not just of one race and gender.

  5. “Romney follows with $200,000 to $250,000 annually is what he considers middle class. Try less than $10,000 annually.”

    You think $10K/year is middle class?

    And what’s wrong with him keeping his money overseas?

  6. As a private citizen now and forever, I suppose Mr. Romney is free to to follow our laws that favor the rich at every turn.

    Comment by Neil Aquino | November 12, 2012

  7. Neil, I suspect you know very little — virtually nothing — about U.S. law regulating overseas deposits held by American citizens. Which such law are you referring to, and what’s wrong with it?

    How would you change that law to make it more fair?

    Comment by Matt Bramanti | November 12, 2012

  8. “Nearly all white party”….Neil, are you racist? Why would it matter about the party being nearly ALL White? What percentage of a racially mixed administration would be correct in your opinion? You should heed the words of MLK and judge those by the content of their character. Your true agenda may be showing thru Neil. And all this time I just thought you were mis-informed.

    For clarity, Ryan considers abortion murder – any abortion for any reason. Romney’s view on the subject was the same, except in instances of rape, incest and the mother’s health. Your take is that a woman has control over her body… but where does her body stop and the next person’s begin?

    Erica, you brought up good points…..maybe. Bragging about helping find a missing girl???? I never once heard this story until you brought it up here. How do you consider that bragging? Would your company close down if you went missing? I think it merits something that he did this. Do you dislike the Romney’s because of their wealth. Your reaction to her statement says more about you than it does her. Look into her earlier years to see how she lived. Obama shares the same view of middle class at 250K for married couples. Maybe “you people” referred to the reporters….again your reaction bolsters your emotions. Did Obama ever release his tax returns? Birth certificate….college transcripts….I think he felt the same way as the Romneys. Romney said 47% of the country…not victims…you may be revealing yourself here too. Did you hear the taped conversation of Obama talking about “wealth redistribution”….probably not. The media pushed the 47% right down your throat and you swallowed it whole! Can you explain the “binders full of women” to me and what made that so incredulous? If not, you are a sheep following the herd….. You should ask yourself why do people keep their money over seas…..maybe to avoid our government from taking half of it? The tax code needs to be re-written, but the entitlement programs need to be completely revamped and the budget needs to be controlled. Ryan was the perfect candidate to get this done. Now we have Biden….(what does he do again?) ..to help Obama. Your about face was caused by a biased media…don’t fool yourself…look beyond the hype.

    Funny thing….when we become rich, will we be as cynical about ourselves?

    More hilarious stuff. No lazy people hear I am quite sure. Just getting their fair share.

  10. Erika & Evangelina—Thank you. Nothing I can add to such fine comments.

    Matt–I made no claim to specific knowledge of laws about Americans keeping money overseas. What I was clearly telling you is that I maintain that our country is rigged to the benefit of the rich. This is a view that millions share. It would just take measure of flexibility on your part to see what I was saying. It would be the same flexibility that guided the winning coalition in last week’s election to realize we all rise or fall together, and that an election outcome can stand as a national voice and affirmation that government has significant and hopeful role to play in the lives of citizens.

    Mike–I mention all-white because there is an extensive history of brutal racism in this country and many of these attitudes are still with us. This is a multi-ethnic nation and any modern major political party should reflect this fact. They should reflect this fact to halp move on from the past and to well-represent a changing nation. I bet you’ll see Republican immigration policy proposals soon enough that reflect my view.

    Comment by Neil Aquino | November 13, 2012

  11. Brutal history of racism…..HISTORY. It happened, no doubt, but we have a black president. Racism exists, but not to the extent it did 50 years ago. People are going to have to quit throwing that card, its played out. Republicans were going to affect immigration laws regardless, but they will have to do a better job at making Hispanic voters understand their views are not so different than those of the Republican party. Obama will be changing his view too. How long do you think he will stand by gay marriage?

    Government has but two roles to play in the lives of its citizens – national security and enforcement of the law. Anything else is simply a squeeze for money.

  12. “Matt–I made no claim to specific knowledge of laws about Americans keeping money overseas.”

    A wise retreat.

    “What I was clearly telling you is that I maintain that our country is rigged to the benefit of the rich.”

    What’s the mechanism by which the rigging works? You talk frequently in vague generalities, apparently to avoid being nailed down on specifics you might have to defend. But when you make such a bold statement like that — imagining some cabal that rewrites economic rules at whim — you should have to defend specifics.

    Comment by Matt Bramanti | November 14, 2012

  13. There is no point in arguing specifics with you because you see it as a game with no end. I have a general philosphy and outlook that you understand well enough. Sometimes I offer specfics. Other times I don’t. You are more worried about pointing out minor mistakes and tying folks down with point after point.

    Comment by Neil Aquino | November 15, 2012

  14. We just may not agree that it is all history at this point. This can be so while agreeing that progress has been made.

    I wager that there is plenty of fraud in defense and law enforcement spending.

    Should not government build roads and provide schools as well?

    Comment by Neil Aquino | November 15, 2012

  15. We were hoping to move beyond all the makers and takers rhetoric after the election so that the middle class could finally get some needed relief. But it seems that some politicians just never stop grandstanding. We need to hold Congress accountable by pressuring them to forgo their salaries and to only keep enough so that they earn the same amount as their home districts.

    Comment by meandemocracy | November 25, 2012

  16. *average income of their home districts, that is

    Comment by meandemocracy | November 25, 2012

  17. I don’t mind members of Congress making an okay salary. I just wish they would do a better job to earn that money. This talk about lazy people on the take is garbage. Especially when so little of the talk is about corporate welfare.
