A case of sour grapes? Mitt Romney offers a mind-boggling explanation as to why he lost the election

Latest News / November 15, 2012

Call it another case of the “47%”.

Mitt Romney’s latest comments serve as a reminder of why many people didn’t vote for him.

When addressing his major donors in a conference call on Wednesday, Romney said that Obama voters were in it for the goodies, the Los Angeles Times Reported.

“The president’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift — so  he made a big effort on small things,” Romney said. “Those small things, by the  way, add up to trillions of dollars.”

He included Obamacare, contraception and college loan forgiveness among the gifts.

David Axelrod, Obama’s chief campaign advisor, tweeted, “Still looking at  America through that 47% prism, Mitt tells donors the takers did him in.”
