    Even fellow Contards are laughing at Romney

    It's pretty sad when your own party tells you to #$%$. But that's what happens when you get stomped in an election.

    Time to flush this Mormon Doosh down the toilet!!!

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal forcefully rejected Mitt Romney’s claim that he lost because of President Barack Obama’s “gifts” to minorities and young voters.

    Asked about the failed GOP nominee’s reported comments on a conference call with donors earlier Wednesday, the incoming chairman of the Republican Governors Association became visibly agitated.

    “No, I think that’s absolutely wrong,” he said at a press conference that opened the RGA’s post-election meeting here. “Two points on that: One, we have got to stop dividing the American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.

    “And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.”

    Meanwhile, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio gently distanced himself from Mitt Romney's comments. The potential 2016 hopeful told POLITICO that he hadn't seen the full context of Romney's comments, and downplayed them as simply "an analysis to donors." But he said, "our mission should not be to deny government benefits to people who need them," but the party should work to ensure "less people need government benefits."

    "I don’t want to rebut him point by point," Rubio said of Romney. "I would just say to you, I don’t believe that we have millions and millions of people in this country that don’t want to work. I’m not saying that’s what he said. I think we have millions of people in this country that are out of work and are dependent on the government because they can't find a job."

    • Romney will disappear from the political stage just like Bush...and just like Bush, none of his supporters will acknowledge having, er, supported him.

      Meanwhile, the racist fundie teabagger contingent, aka "the base" will be around for years and will cost the GOP the 2016 election...and the one after that...and probably the one after that.

        You don't have a clue to what you are talking about. Bush did not disappear. The family still controls the Republican Party - Romney goes back to Bush Sr and Nicaragua. Call him a step child.

        No, they will cost the racist democraps the 2016 election as they will go back to their roots there and join those who think in racial colors just as they do and you do.
