In a call to big donors, explaining why he lost the election, Mitt Romney, instead of calling for a healing or re-unification of the country, decided to turn up the hate speak.

What the President's campaign did was focus on certian members of his base coalition, give them extraordianary financial gifts from the government, and then work very agressively to turn them out to vote

Well as one of those certain members of the President's base coalition, I feel compelled to ask, what gifts?

With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest, was a big gift...
Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents' plan, and that was a big gift to young people. They turned out in large numbers, a larger share in this election even than in 2008.
You can imagine for somebody making $25,000 or $30,000 or $35,000 a year, being told you're now going to get free health care, particularly if you don't have it, getting free health care worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity, I mean, this is huge...

Okay, as far as the free health care, that's not what the Affordable Health Care Act does.  That wasn't even what the public option did, but as you know, the public option fell through as well.

Likewise with Hispanic voters, free health care was a big plus. But in addition with regards to Hispanic voters, the amnesty for children of illegals, the so-called Dream Act kids, was a huge plus for that voting group...

So in summary, on a call to big donors, in an effort to explain what you did with better than $1,000,000,000 of thier dollars, the best you can come up with is easily disectable talking points?  Come on.  You just proved to the 59,136,717 of people that voted for you that they made a big mistake.  America deserves better than you.
