Romney a self-righteous dick right to the end

Willard Mittens Romney, champion of personal responsibility, figured out why he inconceivably lost the election. It wasn't his fault. Romney on a conference call with his disgruntled donors told them he would have won darn it, except that President Obama was all giving out big presents like he was freaking Santa Claus or something.
"The Obama campaign was following the old playbook of giving a lot of stuff to groups that they hoped they could get to vote for them and be motivated to go out to the polls, specifically the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people," Romney told hundreds of donors during a telephone town hall Wednesday. "In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups."
In other words, the insulting remarks he made about you 47% deadbeats he made behind closed doors? The only mistake was it was made public before the election. Now that you moochers didn't vote for him, he's free to trash you losers again.

Of course, as Ezra points out, it's a very ugly vision of how politics works and the Mittster was offering some big gifts to his donors too. Lord knows they tried to deliver the game for him from showering him with money to threatening to fire people if Obama won.

But he apparently still has hopes of keeping some kind of grift going among the "job creator" class.
Romney said he and his team were discussing how to keep the campaign's donor group connected — perhaps with annual meetings or a monthly newsletter — "so we can stay informed and have influence on the direction of the party, and perhaps the selection of a future nominee."

"Which, by the way," he added with a chuckle, "will not be me."

The former Massachusetts governor said he was trying to turn his thoughts to what he would do going forward.

"But frankly," he said, "we're still so troubled by the past, it's hard to put together our plans for the future."
It's all so sad when the entourage goes home and leaves you all alone. Guess cutting off the campaign workers' credit cards in the middle of the night just wasn't enough to dull the pain.
