Mitt Romney didn’t have to go very far in his binder to describe how he lost the 2012 election to his financial supporters.
The purpose of the call was for him to tell his financial backers that their “investment” of over one billion dollars to assure his election as POTUS had yielded a “return on investment (ROI)” of zero. Always an awkward conversation for a brilliant takeover and private equity fund manager to have, at best.
In a telephone conference call on Wednesday, November 14, less than two weeks after suffering a devastating defeat at the polls to President Barack Obama, Mitt only had to recall his words at the infamous “private donor meeting” this last May.
In Wednesday’s teleconference call, the Los Angeles Times says Mitt stated
“that his loss to President Obama was due in large part to his rival’s strategy of giving “gifts” during his first term to three groups that were pivotal in the results of last week’s election: African Americans, Latinos and young voters.”
O those shiftless forty-seven percenters, sitting around waiting for the government dole.
Magnanimously, Mitt finished his conference call by telling this supporters that HE, Mitt Romney, will personally select the next GOP candidate for POTUS in 2016 and that they can help him, but alas and alack – it won’t be him. Emperor Mitt?
