    O won by giving black,Latino,young voters "big gifts" says mitt

    Doug Sovern ‏@SovernNation
    Romney says he "hadn't anticipated" losing, says Obama won by showering black, Latino & young voters with "big gifts": http://nyti.ms/QepNTM

    In a conference call on Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

    “In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Mr. Romney said.
    “With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest, was a big gift,” he said. “Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people. They turned out in large numbers, a larger share in this election even than in 2008.”

    yeah, and?

    Romney ran a losing campaign. He gives some decent reasons why. Is it supposed to be shocking that Obama's platform was incentive laden to his target demographics? Or is it supposed to be shocking that Romney would dare say as much?

    You get votes by giving the voters things they want?

    I think Mitt Romney may have just cracked the code to winning elections.

    Well it's def not racial to me but I think it's def true you can win by giving things. You can win by giving to the rich you can win by giving to the poor, you can win by giving things to gay dwarfs that only are asexuals (if they are a voting majority). Is the majority that can win an election out for the good of the nation and not themselves?

    Are you facking kidding? The guy ran on a platform of "let's drastically cut taxes for me and my friends." He's just pissed off because he didn't have enough friends.

    Gifts was a weird choice of words but your right that pretty much what he said. I fail to see the big deal. Is this more or less offensive then "binders full of women"?

    Given that it plays directly into his comments that 47% of Americans are hopeless victim moochers, it's significantly worse. Remember when everyone on the right was telling us Romney didn't really believe those comments? Turns out they were dead wrong, and that's exactly what Romney believes.

    Don't run a southern strategy and you might win a national election...its a losing strategy given the cultural and population shift.
