Romney Also Blames Republican Debates, Liberal Networks, For Hurting His Chances
In the same call with donors where Mitt Romney blamed President Obama’s “gifts” to minorities for his loss, he offered other reasons, too.
Mitt Romney slammed the Republican primary debates, and the media, in the same call to donors in which he made his infamous “gifts” comments…
“We had 20 Republican debates, that was absolutely nuts,” he said. “It opened us up to gaffes and to material that could be used against us in the general, and we were fighting these debates for a year, and the incumbent president just sat back and laughed.”
Romney also said that the networks that hosted the debates were working against the party. He said that next time, the GOP should “agree that we’re gonna do, you know, I don’t know, eight debates, and we’re gonna, we’re gonna do one a month, and we’re gonna pick stations that are reasonable, it’s not all gonna be done by CNN and NBC, alright, I mean we’re gonna try and guide this process so that it’s designed to showcase the best of our people as opposed to showcasing liberals beating the heck out of us.”
