Romney: Obama Won with Gifts to Minorities, Young

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is telling top donors that President Barack Obama won re-election because of the “gifts” he had already provided to blacks, Hispanics and young voters.

Romney also cites as a reason for his loss the president’s effort to paint Romney as anti-immigrant.

In a call Wednesday to those donors, Romney said Obama’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups what he called “a big gift” while his campaign had been about, in his words, “big issues for the whole country.”

Romney says his loss to Obama is a disappointing result that he and his team didn’t expect, but he says he believes his team ran a superb campaign. In the call, he didn’t acknowledge any major missteps. Obama won by about 3.5 million votes, or 3 percent.

    Now Romney knows money can’t buy everything! Despite all odds, our President prevailed. He still has an uphill battle fighting a Red House which has blocked his every move in an attempt to squash his goals of bringing the Middle Class equal pay, women’s rights, gay rights and affordable healthcare. The Bush Administration drove our economy into a swift nose dive and Obama is still the patsy. Watch conservative hands paint him in Blackface with a visual commentary of how Barack has been bamboozled at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html
