Romney becomes Republicans persona non grata

8 posts in this topic

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 odds with 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.

Politics as usual...your guy loses so you kick him to the curb, happens all the time. Personally, I think Mr. Romney did himself great damage with the 47% remark.

Gary Johnson was marginalized by the GOP at the beginning of the campaign. Paybacks are hell, it seems.

It was understood by many that Romney was the lesser of numerous evils. They used him up, and he used them.

If the GOP was principled, they would have nominated Gary Johnson.

The system is utterly corrupted, and that's why so many people don't vote at all. You can fool some of the people all the time...

I think that by 2016 it may be difficult to find an "old guard" type to run - maybe for either party. I think we are going to be SERIOUSLY in the &*$$% by then and it won't really matter which party is in charge. Those who think this recent election was just more of the same are going to choke on their ignorance I think.

It already doesn't matter to which party you belong, and to whether it matters which party is in charge. Already today.

Hypocrite. He's crying that his "gifts" to the 1% club weren't as meaningful to voters.
