Last week, we heard Romney go rogue about the 47% and 'gifts'. Now, we have more nuggets from the great GOP Failed Leader.
–Romney on the “gifts” to Hispanic voters: “For any lower-income Hispanic family, Obamacare was massive, I mean for–the average income for a household in America is fifty thousand dollars a year, that’s the median, fifty K per year. For the Hispanic household, my guess is it’s lower than that, maybe it’s forty thousand a year. For a home earning let’s say thirty thousand a year, free health care, which is worth about ten thousand dollars a year, I mean is massive, it’s huge. So this–he did two very popular things for the Hispanic community.”Such a sore loser, Mittens.
–The primary was “nuts.” Romney: “We had 20 Republican debates, that was absolutely nuts, it opened us up to gaffes and to material that could be used against us in the general, and we were fighting these debates for a year, and the incumbent president just sat back and laughed.” Romney said he wants his group of donors to stay together to pressure Republicans to abbreviate their primary process.
–Criticized networks that hosted debates. Romney’s suggestion for the debates next time: “agree that we’re gonna do, you know, I dont’ know, eight debates, and we’re gonna, we’re gonna do one a month, and we’re gonna pick stations that are reasonable, it’s not all gonna be done by CNN and NBC, alright, I mean we’re gonna try and guide this process so that it’s designed to showcase the best of our people as opposed to showcasing liberals beating the heck out of us.”
