Ranking Republicans kick Romney to curb

Newt Gingrich told Evan Smith that Mitt Romney’s explanation of why he lost the election — by giving “gifts” to minorities and young people — was “insulting and profoundly wrong.”

Republican governors Jinal of Louisiana, Martinez of New Mexico, and Christie of New Jersey echo the sentiment. Romney’s extraordinarily fast (and well-deserved) fall from top is no doubt due to him positioning himself as the only candidate that could win then running one of the worst campaigns in memory while changing his views to suit whatever audience he was speaking to. Andrew Sullivan summed Romney up perfectly when he called him “an empty suit.” And now Romney has been kicked to the curb by his own party.

    The “Gifts” comment will be his “Famous Last Words” because nobody’s ever going to hear from him again.
