Mitt Romney Is Still Terrible

[Content Note: Racism; classism.]

Good morning! Or whatever! Happy Monday to you wherever you are! Yesterday, historical footnote Mitt Romney took to the airwaves of Fox News to stomp on some sour grapes to make whine and remind us all that he is still so fucking terrible! Let's all celebrate that this terrible garbage nightmare was not elected to the US presidency by reading some great headlines about his hot interview!

Think Progress—Romney: I Lost Because Minorities Love Obamacare: "We did very well with the majority population, but not with minority populations, and that was a failing, that was a real mistake. ...I think the Obamacare attractiveness and feature was something we underestimated, particularly among lower incomes." HA HA PERFECT QUOTE! It's terrific how Romney manages to be correct—he did not offer policies that appeal to people who aren't rich and white—but also still be a total fucking asshole devoid of even the most infinitesimal modicum of self-reflection or accountability. Neat!

AP—Romney: Heart Told Him He'd Win, Until He Saw Florida Returns: "Mitt Romney says his heart said he was going to win the presidency, but when early results came in on election night, he knew it was not to be. The GOP nominee tells Fox News Sunday that he knew his campaign was in trouble when exit polls suggested a close race in Florida. Romney thought he'd win the state solidly. Obama ended up taking Florida and won the election by a wide margin in the electoral vote." Whooooooooops! His heart was sure he'd win, because his brain forgot that his mouth said that people aren't entitled to food!

Politico—Romney: 'It Kills Me' Not to Be President: First of all: Ha ha GOOD. Secondly, here is the full quote, which will make you want to rage-quit reading this post: "I'll look at what's happening right now, I wish I were there. It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation. The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads. And—and I don't see that kind of, of leadership happening right now." THIS GUY! UGH!

Yes, yes you are.
