Letters | Romney’s ‘gifts’ comment

Romney was on target in his post-mortem

I write in regard to the article about Mitt Romney’s parting comments (“Romney ‘gifts’ remark raises ire within GOP,” Page A1, Nov. 16). I disagree with Mitt Romney’s previous comments about the 47 percent — in reality, that number is too low!

Everyone take a step back, and reconcile President Obama’s campaign promises and recent policy focuses with three key voting groups where he picked up the most gains: single women (government to provide free coverage of birth control and abortion), Hispanics (easier path to citizenship and education), and young people (ability to remain on parents’ health plan up to age 26, and forgiveness of college debt interest payments).

Clear as day, Romney might be on to something.
