After election flop, Romney performs a flip


Mitt Romney’s attempt to explain to his national finance committee, an audience of wealthy supporters, why he lost the presidential election — because President Obama bestowed “gifts” on people Romney perceives as mere interest groups — suggests how disingenuous Romney’s attempts to appear more moderate were in the waning weeks and days of his campaign. Further, it demonstrates how difficult it will be for the Republican Party to shed its image as the party of wealthy plutocrats and angry white men.
