[su_right_ad]Former future president and possible future presidential runner-up Mitt Romney continued his tour of the dank basement of political obscurity this week by giving a speech in Idaho at which he was overshadowed by a famous gubernatorial loser. Once the excitement from Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman’s barnburner had died down, the crowd at the Governor’s Trade and Business Conference in Boise, Idaho got to digest Romney’s important thoughts on how Obama doesn’t deserve credit for the economic recovery that Romney promised to take twice as long to deliver, and why it is that Romney lost the Hispanic vote by historic margins.

A lot of people think it’s ridiculous to think that Mitt Romney could, once again, be the Republican nominee for president, but I happen to think the idea has merit, strategically. The crest of white male opposition to Obama that Republicans have been riding to the midterms is about to mix in with the juices of white male anxiety about Hillary Clinton, making a potent cocktail that uniquely positions Romney as the GOP’s ServePro™ candidate: Like It Never Even Happened. That’s why it is so heartening to hear what it was, exactly, that Mitt Romney learned from his absolute plastering at Obama’s hands among Hispanic voters in 2012.

Aside from the rest of his party’s relentless assault on the last shreds of goodwill they might have left with Hispanic voters, which of Romney’s own personal efforts at literally alienating these groups do you think he chalks it up to?

If you guessed “all of the above,” or even any of the above, you would be wrong…READ MORE[su_csky_ad]

    I am probably reaching, but I am thinking that dying his face brown for an interview with Latino Cable Television Channel Univision may have been a contributory factor.

    He is a “leader” of a hypocritical party of idiots who have the nerve to talk to other groups as if they are the idiots.

    Mitt Romeny said: “The president’s campaign wisely saw Hispanics would be critical votes in some states.”

    Finally, he admitted that President Obama and his campaign were WISE.

    Mitt and the rest of GOTP had always ignored the minorities and in this case the Hispanics. One time during his failed 2012 campaign in a Univision interview, Mitt Romney said:
    “I don’t think people would think I was being honest with them if I said I was Mexican-American. “My dad was born in Mexico and I’m proud of my heritage.

    Of course, he intentionally forgot to mention that his father had been born in a “Mormon Colony” in Chihuahua, Mexico.

    Mitt, you have lost the election because you were a LOUSY candidate.

      Having a father who was born in Mexico of white parents doesn’t make you Mexican American, and your “heritage” is still fluorescent white Mormon. Mitt saying he’s proud of his Mexican heritage is like a GI’s kid who happened to be born in a German hospital saying he’s proud of his German heritage. It takes more than an accident of place to have a heritage.

        Exactly! Mitt thought he could fool some people, but he failed.

        Plus, we all know very well why his father’s parents escaped from U.S. and went to Mexico, but we keep that as a secret, and we won’t tell anyone!! *wink*

    Why, yes Mitt, they are blaming you for not hiring enough illegal immigrant gardeners!

    these racist goptp types never believe it is their views and beliefs as well as their words that are to blame. Calling brown kids disease ridden filth, saying mexicans are all thieves and moochers and other such nonsense is the reason.
