From Crooks and Liars:
Mitt Romney took a shot at his fellow Republican presidential contenders during his concession speech in South Carolina this Saturday evening for daring to go after his time at Bain Capital.
Here’s more from the LA Times — Mitt Romney on S.C. loss: ‘I will compete in every single state’:
Romney congratulated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on his victory, but quickly pivoted to an argument that Republicans should not put up a nominee against Obama who has “never run a business and never run a state.” He also faulted Gingrich for joining Obama in the criticism of his private sector experience at a private equity firm – which he described as an attack on freedom and free enterprise.
“We cannot defeat (Obama) with a candidate who has joined that very assault on free enterprise,” he said. “When my opponents attack success and free enterprise, they‘re not only attacking me, they’re attacking every person who dreams of a better future,” he said. “I will support you. I will help you have a better future.”
No, Mitt – People are attacking you precisely BECAUSE they dream of a better future and precisely BECAUSE they’re coming to realize that what people like you do is not ‘job creation’ but a hollow, psychotic financial orgy whose residue of murdered businesses prevents people who aren’t born to millionaires and politicians from ever having a future. (Newt Gingrich is no better – just less absorbed money, a slightly higher tax rate, more wives – oh! the irony! – and a sister who works for a gay rights organization thats as useless at securing equality as Bain Capital is for net American job creation – but I suspect that his bloated soul be beached on reality reef somewhere before Spring Break.)
Reality is a dish best served cold, Mitt.
Now get the hell back to Paris and try recruiting some more mormon converts from inside your chateau – and most importantly, just go masturbate with your millions and STFU.
