Washington Post said:
Ten days after failing to sail into the White House, Mitt Romney is already being tossed overboard by his party.
The former Massachusetts governor — who attracted $1 billion in funding and 59 million votes in his bid to unseat President Obama — has rapidly become persona non grata to a shellshocked Republican Party, which appears eager to map out its future without its 2012 nominee.
Romney was by all accounts stunned at the scale of his Nov. 6 loss, dropping quickly from public view after delivering a short concession speech to a half-empty Boston arena. Then came a series of tin-eared remarks this week blaming his loss on Obama’s “gifts” to African Americans and Hispanics, among others — putting him squarely at oddswith party leaders struggling to build bridges with minorities.
Nice to see that scapegoatism is alive and well among Republicans. The fact is: All of you lost this election and less because of Romney but thanks to the aid of Todd Akin, Richard Murdock, the do nothing Congress and the changing of the tunes depending on where you were campaigning.
