Mitt Romney went out with style on election night, only to reemerge as the same out of touch elitist we always knew he was. If there was any doubt whether America made the right decision on election night, those doubts were quickly dismissed by Romney’s call with donors, during which he lamented how President Obama won because of all the “gifts” he promised blacks, Hispanics, young people, and women. What kind of gifts, you ask? For young people, Romney noted that Obama promised to lower interest rates on college loans.
None of what Romney said in his call with donors about ‘gifts’ is surprising since we all got a glimpse into his disdain for much of the electorate with his 47 percent comment.
