Carlos Gutierrez, adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, said Sunday he was “shocked” by Romney’s comments this week on minorities.
“I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong.”

Ugh.

CNN reported:

In an interview set to air in full Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley, Gutierrez also sharply criticized Romney’s remarks made on a call Wednesday with donors following his loss in last week’s election. Romney explained his loss in part by pointing to “gifts” President Barack Obama gave to certain groups that turned out in high numbers.

Gutierrez, the former secretary of commerce, said he was “shocked” by Romney’s comments.

“I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong,” he said. “We are the party of prosperity, of growth, of tolerance. I mean these immigrants who come across and what they do wrong is they risk their lives, they come here and they work because they want to be part of the American Dream.”

  1. One of Romney’s failings was he was trying to hard to be the centrist everyman’s solution to everything. That never freaking works.

    We need a GOP candidate that is as much right as the left’s candidate is left.

    We need a GOP candidate that is so far right that it makes Rush Limbaugh blush.

    Rino’s must go.

    They can take Rove, Christie, Brown, Huckabee, Boehner and the entire lot and GTFO.

    Go Right.

    Go Rogue.

    Go Gault.

  2. These clowns are floating in the upper stratosphere with their heads firmly planted up their collective asses! Romney and his band of derelicts have managed to blame everyone but their own ineptness. They sound more like Obama than adults. And they wonder why they can’t win elections.

    oh that’s still in the works, plans for an Obama 3rd term have already
    been openly discussed recently, not to mention since he was selected
    by the powers that be in the first place.. :mad:

    more at links..

  4. We’re never going to win if we alienate the center. The GOP is now where the Democrats were after 1968. It took Clinton to turn his back on the far left and win back the Regan Democrats, and it will take a Republican Clinton to get the GOP back on track. We’re a multi-racial society. Legal abortion is the law of the land (even if Roe v. Wade were overturned, enough states would continue to keep it legal that the Supreme Court would eventually rule on it as a matter of equal protection). Gay marriage is here to stay. Live with it. There are plenty of middle class minorities, women and gays who would be happy to pay lower taxes, if we could stick to the important issues like small government and a strong defense.

  5. Every concession made by a conservative is taken, with none given in return. This happens at all levels from legislation in Washington DC to a dinner-table debate.

    If you want to lose, give them the slightest opening.

  6. Tell all the RINO’s Rubio, Christie, Jindal, Pawlenty, and all their other RINO, Romney-bashing friends to hit the road. We don’t need RINO’s to attempt to OUT-PANDER the Democrats, via promising to meet or beat them at HANDOUTS, to get votes. It’s PATHETIC, and SHAMEFUL.

    Besides that-does anyone ACTUALLY BELIEVE that the Democrats won’t point this pandering out to the illegals-saying “Where were they before?” No thanks. Republicans that position themselves and run as liberal Democrats will never win, and they don’t deserve to. Romney was a bit of one too, but at least he wasn’t this bad-he knew better than to pander handouts. Don’t be gullible people, all the RINO’s aren’t the way to go.

    Of course this is even considering Obama not giving the 11 million+ illegals citizenship, making them instant Democrat voters, in which case we’ll have Democrat presidents for life anyhow. It’s all a joke from here on out folks. Sorry, but this show is over.

  7. Riiiight, we need another dotcom bubble and a candidate willing to coopt the Democrats legislation. Brilliant strategy. Did you get your talking points from a meghan mccain daily breast article? effin’ clueless!

  8. One of Romney’s failings was he was trying to hard to be the centrist everyman’s solution to everything. That never freaking works.

    Keep telling yourself that. America is now a D+6 country. Gutierrez attacked Romney for being too far right. He is then attacked on this site for not being right enough.

    Face facts. The far right stayed home and just re-elected the most left wing president in history. The Republican Party will now move left. It isn’t going to align itself with an unreliable constituency.

    Those of you who didn’t support Romney blew it.

  9. Of course this is even considering Obama not giving the 11 million+ illegals citizenship, making them instant Democrat voters, in which case we’ll have Democrat presidents for life anyhow. It’s all a joke from here on out folks. Sorry, but this show is over.

    Correct, this course is unsustainable regardless. Wait’ll the illegals get here and find out there’s nothing left. Canada’s next! Better hope for some more global warming cause it be cold up there!

  10. Democrats and Republicans should merge – much less hypocritical and less confusion.

    I wonder if this will open a few more liberal “die hard Republicans’” eyes to what is actually going on. There is no difference between the two parties. There was (is) no difference between Romney and 0bama. And these latest comments of Romney’s are a little more proof.

    *Principle? Morals? Biblical values? Throw ‘em out! We don’t need no stinkin’ God! That’s for the right-wing nut jobs!* So say liberals from both sides of the aisle.

    *sigh* Disgusting and sad. All that “compromise” and “we aren’t voting for a religion or preacher but a president” hypocritical crap that came from the mouth of not just everyday Republican folks, but people such as Carl Gallups, Billy and Franklin Graham, and James Dobson….

    How’d that compromise work for ya’?

    Ugh – merge the two parties. They are both the same and I’m sick of them.

  11. let it burn

  12. We are losing at every juncture because our so-called “leaders” give in first.

    And also, because we have such a partisan press, which is actually the larger problem

  13. These clowns never fail to amaze me. Fiscal and personal responsibility, constitutionally limited government are extreme positions to these people. Remember these are the geniuses that got us in the position we’re in today.

    Obama’s “center” are “collective radicals”, the fringe of the fringe
    of the Tea Party couldn’t hold a candle to them.. they consist of the
    Weatherman, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, SDS, CPUSA, ACORN,
    SEIU, and i could go on and on, enough of the consistently projected
    perception that it’s always a “right fringe group” that causes trouble
    when we know for a fact that it’s always the left fringe center groups..

  15. Baloney! Reagan won because he stuck to CONSERVATIVE and PATRIOTIC American values. He didn’t water it down for any one group.

    Reagan made clear the “American Dream” was open to any person; regardless of religious stripe or cultural identity.

    Cultural eites like this guy need get out of the way, or go back to their political hacienda.

  16. Outrage during Bush term was a ruse. Democrats are okay with 8%-10% unemployment, high debt, continuing war on all front and dead soldiers. They just like to be the driver seat of power and access to easy money. And the media are in full force to spread propaganda.

    Now, they just have to figure out how to suspend the 2nd amendment and tyranny will be complete. Oh, they did try to form a narrative on fast and furious…they just got busted. They are corrupt, criminals, hungry power and lying b*stards.

  17. MORON: You lost because you are *NOT* conservatives AT ALL!!! IDIOT!
    Go submit to Obama you jackass

  18. Bush I, Dole, McCain, Romney. Now we should try for 5 straight losses for moderate squishes?

  19. And to show how evil the devil is- look who is the face of this movement. A complete punk fraud no experience clueless cocky racist no skill idiot. Like rubbing salt in the wound. To hear people call this child “the president” makes my skin crawl. What company would hire this guy as an executive? No one. But president of the UNITED STATES…. sure no problem. The devil on earth.
