In what can be called a big sour grapes situation, Mitt Romney is now claiming that there were too many minorities how voted for him. A recent article points out that Romney’s campaign was probably one of the least diverse campaign offices around and that seeing a person of a color other than white was a rare sight during his campaign stops. I noted this myself and was not shocked when I heard his “47% speech”.
I am sorry to say I just cannot grasp why any minorities would registered as a Republican when that party has become one associated with elitism and privilege. Being a woman and half Mexican, I don’t believe I could ever register in the GOP. But being a different color wasn’t all he was complaining about when lamenting about his loss. He pointed to “gifts” given by the Obama administration. These so called presents are things like student loans, Social Security and Medicare. I hardly call them “gifts”, but I suppose anyone in the entitled class would consider any help outside of their trust funds and daddy’s wallets is just that. I just look at all of this as a case of sour grapes and more of a reason why it was a good thing Mr. Romney was not elected.
