Hey, does anyone want some advice on how to win elections from the guy who just lost an election? No? Well, too bad because Mitt Romney has decided to follow in the footsteps of John "Hell, yes, I'm still bitter about 2008" McCain by spending his post-election days explaining that he really did mean all the worst things he said during the election because he really is a dick—and he would have won too, if it weren't for those meddling voters.

In today's installment of Shit Mitt Romney Should Stop SayingTM:

What I would do if I were a Democrat running four years from now, I'd say, you know what? Dental care ought to be included in Obamacare. Immigration we can solve, but the giving away free stuff is a hard thing to compete with.
This is probably one of those infamous Romney attempts to be funny. Like when he said the pastries from the local bakery looked like they came from 7-11. Or that uproariously humorous story he told about that time his dad closed a factory and laid off a bunch of workers hardy har har. Because, obviously, only those deadbeat moocher taker Democrats have dental needs. So expanding health coverage to include, you know, all matters of health is so absurd and such an obvious hand-out to that 47 percent of Americans Romney despises that, chuckle, Democrats should offer that to voters in four years if they want to win the next election. You're welcome, Democrats!

No wonder Republicans who think they still have a political future are starting to suggest Mitt should maybe, um, stop. Now.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
