Romney Blames Election Loss on Obama's 'Gifts'

Ashley Parker, reporting for the NYT's The Caucus blog:

In a conference call with fund-raisers and donors to his campaign, Mr. Romney said Wednesday afternoon that the president had followed the "old playbook" of using targeted initiatives to woo specific interest groups - "especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people."

"In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups," Mr. Romney said, contrasting Mr. Obama's strategy to his own of "talking about big issues for the whole country: military strategy, foreign policy, a strong economy, creating jobs and so forth."

Bullshit. As if Romney didn't do his fair share of pandering. Pot, meet kettle.

Before anyone poo-poos me as being partisan, let me make clear that I'm not a huge fan of Obama either, let alone any other Democrat. That said, it's my opinion that Obama was clearly the better choice; Romney's comments above just prove that he's one hell of a sore loser.
