Mitt Romney explains why he lost the election

Recant not successful

Poor Mitt Romney, he just can’t seem to get his point across [“Romney spreads blame in explaining why he lost,” News, March 4].

He claims that the 47-percent comment — blown out of proportion by the media — wasn’t really what he meant to say. What he really meant to say was, he lost because African Americans and Hispanics were lured to vote for President Obama because they don’t have health insurance and they wanted it.

But didn’t the 1 percent vote for Mitt because they wanted his bag of goodies?

One good thing about class warfare is that there are more of us than of them.

–Nancy Dapper, Seattle
