Romney Blames Loss on Obama’s ‘Gifts’

In a conference call Wednesday, Mitt Romney blamed his loss in the presidential election on “gifts and initiatives” President Obama gave to young, African-American, and Hispanic voters. He said Obama followed the “old playbook” of catering to specific demographics. He added that for young people, forgiveness of college loan interest was “a big gift,” as was free contraceptives. He said free health care “was a big plus” for Hispanics and African-Americans voters, too. Louisiana Governor and rumored 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal slammed Romney's excuses Wednesday, saying "that is absolutely wrong...we have got to stop dividing American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent."
