His fall from grace was prompted by comments he made to donors about "gifts" given to groups that supported Obama.

Someone needed to clue Mitt in to the change in position of the GOP that started 11/7/12...

It is so hilarious to see the fallout from the "republican loss". The party needs to look hard at themselves and ask - who will be the face of the party and what do we stand for? The demographic of the party is mostly middle aged suburban whites. A shrinking portion of the population. Wanna appeal to people other than those folks - drop the hardline stuff about social issues and get informed. Then offer some solutions (in detail) not more rhetoric about the ideals make you think that you are right. Someone once said " to get really high is to forget yourself and to forget yourself is to see everything else" That quote was about a process not about drugs BTW. Open up your minds and see the world with possibilities not limitations.

If he believes the "gifts" statement he made, I wonder what "gifts" Romney planned for his big donors?

Looks like the Republicans are finally starting to see the Mitt Romney that the majority of voters already knew about. How quickly they try to distance themselves from the man they felt should lead the free world less than two weeks ago.

The reason Mr. Romney lost is simply because the nation is now center left, not center right, as it was before. People are not going to vote against their financial interest and there are now more takers than givers. There is nothing Republicans can do about that unless and until the whole government, local, state, and federal collapses. This may be a long process.

The comments by Mitt underscore that I made the right choice in not voting for him. And it wasn't Democrats that defined his image...he did it all by himself.

Nothing like revalidating that he was a bad choice. You would expect more poise at this level. But no doubt...he is speaking from his heart. Most of us our useless takers..in his less-than-humble opinion. BAD choice!

People are not going to vote against their financial interest and there are now more takers than givers.And Mitt, as the standard-bearer for the "it's all about me, me, and only me" crowd, well understood how the 1%'ers could take still more from the middle.
