It’s the only way to hold the stupid in.
Mitt Romney, in calls to major donors to his presidential campaign, said President Barack Obama bought the election by giving “gifts” to his core constituency: that 47% of loafers and freeloaders who live below the income level that is taxable: African-Americans, Hispanics, and young and elderly voters.
Romney first proposed that Obama is supported by a core constituency of people who want free stuff from the government in early 2012 at an appearance before wealthy donors during the campaign. That appearance was secretly recorded and made a campaign football by the media. Romney recanted and said he was wrong, that his comments were crudely delivered, and at one point intimated that during a campaign it is standard practice to play to the prejudices of the audience.
But it appears Romney has returned to his theme of government-dependent freeloaders blindly supporting Obama to get government handouts as he attempts to rationalize his election loss to those who supported him, and ultimately to himself. He doesn’t see his failure as a result of his unpopular policies, his elitism, or his inability to understand the lives of average Americans. Instead it’s the fault of those poor people, the freeloaders who are looting our government of the hard-earned taxes the rich pay.
Not all Republicans failed to learn anything from the recent election, though. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal criticized Romney’s remarks, saying “I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party. That has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election.”
I know, I know: you lost another election. You’re faced with four more years of a black man residing in the White House and you’re feeling hurt and confused – after all, why is it called the “White” House if blacks can live there? You did your best spending billions of dollars on campaigns that you weren’t willing to spend on taxes, to make sure you don’t have to pay more taxes. Not being good with math you still aren’t sure how that works-out. And that contributes to your feelings of insecurity.
But cheer up! You may never win the presidency again, but you do still control the House of Representatives, and that means you get to continue to do what you do best: obstruct legislation, take symbolic votes on bills you know will never make it through the Senate, and stuff things up women’s vaginas when they get pregnant. You can continue to say you speak for all Americans even though you are predominantly old white men with prostate problems. And you can see to it that the Democrats make absolutely no progress with the economy because good economic news is bad news for Republicans.
You’ve still got your fantasy world of white supremacy, male domination, and Protestant Christian values to live in! Don’t let reality intrude now when you’ve managed to delude yourselves that you are still relevant 112 years after the 19th century ended! All you have to do is keep saying “we just have to be more conservative and people will love us!” until it seems the same as the truth.
Come on, you can do it. Jam that stick of moral superiority up your backside and march in lock-step into a future that looks just like a black-and-white musical from the 1930s, where white men rule the world and black men serve them drinks! A world where there are still a few new ways to creatively work rape into a positive context! That’s your world – even if it is just make-believe!
Barack Obama has been elected to a second term as President of the United States of America, narrowly defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney.
Six billion dollars so things can stay exactly the same. I’m glad I voted for the Green candidate even if she did get about 0.05% of the popular vote. That was a real vote for CHANGE!
Still, it’s better to stick with the idiot we had than to have elected that plastic window dummy the Republicans ran – the one with every possible opinion on every issue. The last thing America needs is a “businessman” running things – they’re the jerks who got us into this mess to begin with.
Most amusing is the thought that right now, somewhere, Newt Gingrich is blind drunk and butt naked and crying “See! I would have won! Me! I’m the President! I’m the President!” as Callista prepares a syringe full of propofol to calm him down.
Of course, had Romney won we at GraceLessLand were prepared:
Speaking at one of his final campaign events in West Allis, Wisconsin, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney warned that unless he is elected the Republicans in congress will work to wreck the economy. Like they haven’t already.
