Mitt Romney – remember him? – is working through his stages of grief at losing the election campaign, and has resurfaced in a call to his lucky donors. During the call, he blamed his defeat on Barack Obama’s “gifts” of free stuff like healthcare and education to women and people of colour.
The Los Angeles Times’s Maeve Reston appears to have heard the conference call, and reports:
Mitt Romney told his top donors Wednesday that his loss to President Obama was a disappointing result that neither he or his top aides had expected, but said he believed his team ran a “superb” campaign with “no drama,” and attributed his rival’s victory to “the gifts” the administration had given to blacks, Hispanics and young voters during Obama’s first term.
