Cruz Explains Why Romney Lost

Where he got clobbered was ’47 percent.’ I think Romney is a good man who had a hard campaign, but I cannot think of a statement in all of politics that I disagree with more strongly.

— Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), quoted by CNN, on why Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election.

Poetic Justice

It’s a Theme!

Mitt Romney’s out to seize this moment
When some fans want him to be our president.
As the rich got richer,
The poor got poorer,
But Mitt’s gotta new compassion for his 47 percent!


Romney’s 47 Percent Is True — and Bigger!

Can I say that without getting in trouble like Gov. Romney. The 47 percent is true. It’s bigger now.

— Nevada congressional candidate Crescent Hardy (R), quoted by TPM.
