A week after losing the presidential election to President Obama, Mitt Romney blamed his overwhelming electoral loss on what he said were big “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies — including young voters, African Americans and Hispanics.

In a conference call Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups — “specially the African American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

Like I said on election night: one well-delivered concession speech does not undo the campaign Romney ran. This is who Romney really is: a rich asshole who truly believes the world owes him its eternal gratitude simply because he exists.
