Republicans Blast Romney: 'Quite Despising the American People'

Republicans spent their time on the Sunday morning talk shows "excoriating Romney" for his latest insulting smear charging that minorities, women and the young voted for Obama because they were bribed with gifts.

It's always strange when leaders of the stark raving mad party actually make sense:

George Will: “It’s been well said that you have a political problem when the voters don’t like you, but you’ve got a real problem when the voters think you don’t like them, Quit despising the American people.”

Newt Gingrich: “It’s nuts. I mean, first of all, it’s insulting. The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”

Bobby Jindal: “I absolutely reject what he said. We as a Republican Party have to campaign for every single vote. If we want people to like us we have to like them first. And you don’t start to like people by saying their votes were bought.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham: “We’re in a big hole, we’re not getting out of it by comments like that. When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging. We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of our rhetoric on immigration, and our candidate Romney and the primaries dug the hole deeper.”
