"Mitt Romney slammed the Republican primary debates, and the media, in the same call to donors in which he made his infamous "gifts" comments.
"We had 20 Republican debates, that was absolutely nuts," he said. "It opened us up to gaffes and to material that could be used against us in the general, and we were fighting these debates for a year, and the incumbent president just sat back and laughed."
Romney benefited from the primary debates more than, say, Rick Perry, but the forums became more well-known for elevating the Herman Cains of the party, as well as highlighting primary crowds that booed gay soldiers and applauded executions.
Romney also said that the networks that hosted the debates were working against the party. He said that next time, the GOP should "agree that we're gonna do, you know, I don't know, eight debates, and we're gonna, we're gonna do one a month, and we're gonna pick stations that are reasonable, it's not all gonna be done by CNN and NBC, alright, I mean we're gonna try and guide this process so that it's designed to showcase the best of our people as opposed to showcasing liberals beating the heck out of us."
"I've never seen such a dismal losing candidate.
Not only has Romney disgraced himself post election. But I have never seen a candidate become such a pariah so soon after an election.
All the losing Dem candidates I have seen in my life have still been honored after they lost. Humphrey, McGovern, Carter, Mondale, Dukakis (criticized for a bad campaign, but not his character or ideology), Gore (well not really a loser) and Kerry. All still venerated and respected by the Dems.
And as far as I remember the Rep.s were still respected after losing. From Goldwater to Dole and McCain.
But Romney has shown himself to be such a cold, plutocratic twit, that he has quickly brought both parties together in their disgust.
I guess he really was bipartisan."
Bevis, anything is better than being an embarrassment and discrace in office. Years from now even illiterates will scratch their heads and wonder how stupid they were. There will be plenty of people available to tell them.
