Well. Apparently Mitt Romney is still on ends about his defeat from last Tuesday  I thought in his concession speech that he maned up and admit that losing to Barack Obama was the stone cold truth. Well, just recently the free gifts comment out of Mitt Romney just surfaced. Matter of fact, they surfaced out of Bill O’Reilly in terms of Americans in the country want things. Well, as a Minority African-American myself I want things too. But the thing that the got me the most with this “free gifts” thing, was indeed coming from Mitt Romney. Here’s what he stated:

“The president’s campaign, if you will, focused on giving targeted groups a big gift,” Romney said in a call to donors Wednesday. “He made a big effort on small things.”

Courtesy of USA Today, here is a summary of the talk about things or free gifts continued for Minorities:

Romney called his loss to Obama a disappointing result that he and his team had not expected, but he said he believed his team had run a superb campaign. He said he was trying to turn his thoughts to the future, “but, frankly, we’re still so troubled by the past, it’s hard to put together our plans for the future.”

Romney’s finance team organized the call to donors. A person who listened to Romney’s call provided details about it to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the call was private. The Los Angeles Times first reported Romney’s remarks.

Among the “gifts” Romney cited were free health care “in perpetuity,” which he said was highly motivational to black and Hispanic voters as well as for voters making $25,000 to $35,000 a year.

Romney also said the administration’s promise to offer what he called “amnesty” to the children of illegal immigrants — what he termed “the so-called DREAM Act kids” — helped send Hispanics to the polls for Obama.

Young voters, Romney said, were motivated by the administration’s plan for partial forgiveness of college loan interest and being able to remain on their parents’ health insurance plans. Young women had an additional incentive to vote for Obama because of free contraception coverage under the president’s health care plan, he said.

So wait. Is this what Romney is mad about? And those donors, fans of Mittens are angry about also? I woke up laughing at this and saying to myself. We all want things! For those of us who are African-American, Latino, Young Voters, and many others who want to chime in, since the Tea Party came and went, it’s time to form a party (with the support of President Barack Obama 2nd Term) that this has birthed. Start up a party like – The Minority Americans Free Gifts Party. Or The Free Gifts Party of America.  I have stated on Facebook that that free gift I got was volunteering for the Re-Election Obama Campaign in Wisconsin recently, and that was a free gift within itself.  As far as free gifts of health, education, and others I (like many others) will continue to get more of those while still living. Free gifts. WOW. And my Birthday and Christmas is around the corner in December. Plus the GOP gave the Democrats a new gift of progressiveness in which they now must fear.

What I am also surprised even those in the Republican Party came out and condemned Romney for the so-called “free gifts” comments. Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal and what’s this: Scott Walker condemns this also? The same Scott Walker was on a Union Busting, Train slashing, Education crapping campaign in order to reveal against the Recall thing, comes out against Mitt Romney. Well if Scott Walker actually cared against his Republican Counterpart like Romney, why crapped on Wisconsin? Laughable.

Once again, President Obama won fair and square. Period. And as far as the next blog about Susan Rice, I’ll get to that next.
