Romney: ‘I Should Have Offered Them Fried Chicken’

Nov 16, 2012

Defeated presidential candidate Mitt Romney claimed today he could have won last week's election had his campaign offered black voters government-funded fried chicken.

Earlier this week Romney told a group of Republican donors on a conference call that president Obama had won reelection because he offered government "gifts" to young people, Latinos, and blacks.

Today CNN obtained an extended audio recording of that call in which Romney goes even further:

"I've spent the last few days wondering what I should have done differently. Maybe I should have been less hostile to immigration? Maybe I should have embraced fewer anti-woman positions?"

"But after a long reflection, I've decided my most important mistake is not matching the Obama campaign's efforts to give away free stuff to blacks and Latinos."

"I should have made a promise to the Afro-American community, for example. If you vote Republican, your fingers will always be covered in grease. I'm sure a $200 gift certificate to Popeyes or KFC could have won those people over. I don't know why we didn't think of that."

"And we could have done the same thing to Latinos with El Pollo Loco and Taco Bell. If I could have just gotten 35% of the minority vote, I would have won the election."

Believe in (White) America

Romney dismisses the idea that his party should tone down its nativist, racially charged rhetoric on immigration and welfare. Rather, he explains that while white voters must be convinced by a candidate's competence, minority voters are different:

"The Afro-American and Latino communities only understand one thing - handouts. You can't talk to them about issues or policy. Goes right over their heads. They only speak the language of 'gimmie more, gimmie more.' "

Although welfare programs go against his philosophy of self-reliance, Romney wishes he had made more such promises to minorities:

"Aside from my education, my first job, and money to start my own business - no one ever gave me damn thing. So it pains me to see Americans dependent on others."

"But a fried-chicken giveaway could have made me president. I regret not making that happen. It was my failure, and mine alone."


Watch: Romney's earlier, slightly less racist comments:

    I think even in jest, the use of the stereotype is unnecessary and perpetuates more of the same. You certainly could have written a piece without it.

  • DailyCurrant

    That’s a noble sentiment, but the fact remains writers need characters in their stories. In this story the character of the chicken symbolizes Romney’s latent racism.

    Given that food is often something ‘given away’ by the government, and given that this particular food is stereotypically associated with the key group in the Obama coalition – its hard for me to imagine this story without it.

    I understand if you think the story goes too far, but the fact is you cannot ‘easily’ write this story without the fried chicken. It would be impossible to write this story without it.

  • USCitizen

    You just prove that you are not presidential material… You still dismiss the half of the country with this coments… so why do you think all white and wealty Americans voted for Obama? Is is becuase you are not good enough to be president of USA?

  • Swampfox

    I am surprised he did not include the choice of a whole watermelon or 50 tortillas for each voter. The man is a boor.

  • Jimbo

    It’s satire you idiot. Of course he didn’t say that. The gullible left, amazing.

  • Jimbo

    After 8 years of Obama, people will be crawling back for anything that doesn’t resemble liberal policies. On our way to another recession right now.

  • Mrs. P

    I voted for Obama because I believe he can get the job done, however I do not believe Mitt Romney made these comments..pure jest..someone needs to get a life..if you have time to write trash like this then your only part of the problem of our society today and could never be part of the solution…”United for America”.. God Bless

    In all fairness, I can understand why people would not readily get that this is satire – because of ridiculous things he’s said in the past. If he nor his came had such a history – before and after the election – this would not alost seem plausible. Sad, but true.

  • Mindyabizness

    Youre a fucking idiot just like that bitch Romney!

    Difference is, we would have a decent economy in 4 years

  • http://www.facebook.com/martin.davis2 Martin Davis

    This must be a joke. Even Romney isn’t stupid enough to say this out loud. He may think it. But not even Romney is stupid enough to verbalize it.

  • BlackChick

    Although I do enjoy Popeyes occasionally, I find it hard to believe that people would be dumb enough to let gifts sway their votes. I don’t believe that this article is correct. If so, I would like to hear this ‘extended’ audio. Just because something is on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true. Also, having a person who pouts and blames ‘gifts’ for his defeat is pretty sad.

He doesn’t care about you or me. He is a classic Narcissist, whose only reason for being President is Power. Remember he is half black and half white. Which side is he showing the public?

As an Italian American myself, I will say that is the dumbest thing I’ve heard in quite a while. Got a rock, crawl back under it! No one wants to hear your racist rants because some half black, half white girl probably took your man and you haven’t gotten over it. It’s because your dumb…enough said!

  • JxS

    Most people don’t realize the steps in which goes into trying to make this country better. Do you really think Obama isn’t trying his best to get the economy back on track, or lower unemployment. There are steps to law making Obama could have the perfect idea to get the country on track but you are forgetting lobbyist and senate, and the House of Representative they all have a say. And if it’s mostly republicans that vote against, then Obama’s genus idea goes out the window. Takes more than 4 years to fix the mess that Bush made. And by these comments, Romney is defiantly NOT PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL.

  • http://www.facebook.com/BLACKRAZOR James Vincent Speller

    47 percent of whites voted for Obama, and for the record Fried Chicken was adopted from Southern Whites who would sit on their porches in the evening Drinking Tea, Eating Chicken and Watermelon! This is not an African American created “Tradition” Southern Whites were the first to sit on the porch eating Fried Chicken and Watermelon and that’s an historical fact!!!!

  • T Mason

    Smh ; That’s Exactly Whyy This Dick Lost! OBAMANATION.!

  • http://www.facebook.com/BLACKRAZOR James Vincent Speller

    Romney is an idiot and a sore loser! He can say whatever he wants but the fact remains that most of “White America” did not want him in the Whitehouse and if he made those comments he will never ever get in! There are poor people in this country and they are mostly poor because of Government! Romney believes that only rich people should be considered for help, but it’s still “Help” As President of this country your job is to make your country as healthy as possible! Rich folks don’t get it! Every country who’s rich were in charge fell due to greed! Okay say you get rid of all the black and latino’s in America, now you have the Asians as minorities!, now you get rid of them you only have whites left! Upper, Middle and Lower, The rich will try to eliminate the poor as they usually do, then that leaves the lower middle class that becomes the lower class, soon they will be eliminated, the the middle class all together. The upper class will prey on the lower upper class, and then the middle, and as soon as they are gone they will begin to feed on each other! That’s the way it works ladies and gentlemen! You have to keep your country healthy from the bottom to the top or else your country will fall!

    WHY PRESIDENT OBAMA WON A SECOND TERM WHY MITT ROMNEY LOST

     

    President Obama should be thanking “Voter Suppression Laws” and “The White Extreme Republican Tea Party”! Mitt Romney showed that he was a horrible leader by not sticking up for “Voter Rights”!!! President Obama won re-election because of the lack of “Republican leadership in America! Mitt Romney reluctant in “NOT” shouting down the “Voter Suppression Laws” showed a lack of leadership! Mitt Romney could had stood up for American democracy HE DID NOT!!! Mitt Romney calling 47% of American lazy and worthless! Mitt Romney repeated “Flip Flop “ and straight up lying gave the election to President Obama. Another thing that must be mention is the polling system! Most polls are anywhere 500 to 1,200 white American. That “TODAY” does not reflect the racial makeup of “TODAYS” America!

    American is a minority dominated country with a agenda of fairness and equality for all Americans! WHITE RULE IS OVER!!! That does not mean that white American are less then NO NO NO! It means that white Americans must compete base on merit and talents! Mitt Romney lost because he had “NO” history of running a country! Mitt Romney lost because he rank 47 in job creation as Governor! Mitt Romney lost because he was a LIAR! Mitt Romey Lost because of his comment that immigrant “self deport! Mitt Romney might be the first white man to fine out. That showing up white is NO MORE” all needed! Mitt Romney lost because he was part of the 1%! Mitt Romney lost because of his association with “Bain Capital”! Mitt Romney lost because of secrete oversea bank accounts to avoid paying American taxes!

    Mitt Romney lost because hate and divide agenda lost! Mitt Romney lost because he was silent when Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist! Mitt Romney lost when he did not speak out against Rush Limbaugh racist comments! Mitt Romney lost because he was too conservative…..AT TIMES!!!! Mitt Romney lost because he wasn’t conservative enough. Mitt Romney lost because of union vote in Ohio. He lost because of the youth vote in Colorado. He lost because he backtracked on abortion and reproductive rights. He lost because he is a rich man who ran during rough economic times pledging to give tax breaks to other rich men. He lost because he didn’t turn over his tax receipts. He lost because he is a Mormon. He lost because of Barack Obama. He lost because of Hurricane Sandy.

    America is not especially far right of center, is getting less white, and is slowly, but surely, digging out of the worst recession since the Great

    America is not especially far right of center, is getting less white, and is slowly, but surely, digging out of the worst recession since the Great

    Depression. The public, most specifically in the “battleground states,” but most probably overall (by a slightly smaller margin than the re-election of George W. Bush), decided to stick with the president for another term. Whites were 76.3% of the voters in 2008; early exit polls have it falling to 72% in 2012. Among them, 61% of men and 55% of women voted for Mitt Romney. President Obama won Latino, African-Americans, and “all others” by larger margins than Romney won among even white men. (The lowest was Latino men, who chose the president 63-35.)

    Now to minorities in America WAKE UP! Police brutality must be address and STOPPED IN AMERICA! We can make that a agenda in elections! Getting rid of “Driving while black” (DWB)! Gang violent and sleazy judges and police officers…..Racism in the court room….These issue must be brought up in elections! AND STOPPED!!!! Getting rid of “Voter Suppression Laws” and Make My Day Laws…..These issue must be brought up in elections! AND STOPPED!!!!

I guess Rush didn’t and still doesn’t realize how much he is alienating the voters and will do so every election.

    It’s poor journalism to not provide your source material to validate your article. Am I a Mitt Romney supporter, no. Would I request the same proof if president Obama had made these outrageous remarks, absolutely. If you have access to the audio, it seems like Journalism 101 to provide your source material to support your claims, unless The Daily Currant is in the satire mold of The Onion. Providing an NBC video clip that does not back your articles outrageous claims is pretty shoddy and reeks of amateurism. Again, not a Romney supporter, but just tired of outrageous claims/stories not supported by factual proof.

And you wonder why you lost the election. Hah! You’llo just keep the negativity and lies up for another two years and then wonder why the GOP lost so many seats in the 2014 midterm election.

    That’s why Romney is out of touch, fried chicken would not be as good without some COLT 45

    Mitt Romney does not know when to stop digging. He has dug himself a deep hole, now he’s covering himself with wet dirt.

    I’m not a Romney fan but under no circumstances do I believe these supposed comments. Think about it. This statement alone is a red flag: “Aside from my education, my first job, and money to start my own
    business – no one ever gave me damn thing. So it pains me to see
    Americans dependent on others.”

    Too lazy to do all that? THIS SHIT IS NOT REAL… funny though.

  • anthonyadams

    Start with the out-of-context lie about Obama saying “You did not build that.” Then you can look up online (I will not do the research for you) about Romney getting called out during the third debate about saying Obama waited for 14 days before he said anything about the Benghazi attacks being terrorist attacks. His accusations (and Ryan’s) that Obama took over $700 in benefit payments out of Medicare to pay for Obamacare (THAT is a huge lie). Then go on to see what Romney said about how his budget would create new revenue and bring down costs. Then take his flip-flippoing on abortion and birth control and saying, after he swtiched his position, that he never held the previous position. Or the lies that Obama wants to restrict gu ownership and take guns and ammo away from the people (when in fact, he did just the opposite). Now that is just a start and if you need more, I’m sure looking up these items will give your links to other lies. And to be sure, his followers and the head of the RNC lead the attacks lies about Obama’s birth, religion, his socialist agenda (or fascist, or communist – your choice to pursue). Then there are the lies about Obama lying when he did not. The lies told about his education, his admition to college, his association with Marxists and terrorists, his favoritism toward the Muslim Brotherhood, and it just goes on and on and one. You don’t have to be a member of anyh olitical party to see the truth – just be intelligent enough to be open to the truth and recognizing it when you see it.

    Folks, c’mon, just give the blacks some sneakers and the Latinos some discounts on rims he could have ensured their support. Seems totally realistic.

    It may be satire but it’s the damn truth. Sad to say the majority of black voters today insist on being coddled like children. “I am a man” they use to protest in the 1960s. Now it’s “I am a child”. They always vote for the party that treats them like children the most every-single-time, and that is the Democrat party: The party of the KKK and slavery.

  • VoxPopulus

    Folks, folks, FOLKS!!! Before you post any more comments asking for proof Romney said this: HE DIDN’T. The Daily Currant is a SATIRICAL site. This is political COMEDY. Yes, the NBC clip with Brian Williams IS true. But TDC took that kernel of reality and ran with it, creating a farcical extension that I would hope (even for Romney) might be a less-than-believable satire. Although considering so many of the things that have come from that out-of-touch troglodyte’s mouth, who KNOWS for sure that he COULDN’T have said this!

    I am so so sorry for some folks who haven’t woken up yet to the new reality that the world does not revolve around the white oppressors who to date believe the world owes them and they are still to be served hand and feet. They got away with that perversion of scripture that the blacks were the sons of Ham who was sentences to serve and be hewer of wood and drawer of water for the white folks. Their head no correct and they are far from knowing they are the descendants of mother Africa. They owe respect to mama & daddy Africa. This is going to be clearer in the coming days as DNA establishes the human paths to current habitations. The truth is that those lies and false teachings that quelled their consciences and seered it to hold the bible in one hand and boldly do transatlantic slavery instead of fair global labour exchange and colonisation instead of equity in business and refine colonisation to the heights of apartheid. The 21st century is the day of globalization – one people, one world, God’s children we and all – all colour and differences dissolved into one world citizenship and level playground for al to play, rise and fall in line with individual skills and proficiencies without the old vestiges of biases, hate, ethnicity and bigotry.

    Former presidential candidate Romney, you failed to make it. You lost to a better man who they could not find a speck of dirt on even a stolen kiss from an admirer. You don’t expect to stand for any thing again. That’s why you can show your true colour now. Your failed phoney soup kitchen showbiz ought to have taught your lesson 101. The days of the white racists and white supremacists is over. It has been shown on the football fields, on the race tracks, on the boxing rings, in the formerly secluded Ivy schools now open to all of us. There is no deficiency or inferiority in the colour of the skin nor the brain accompaniment. Your race has lost discipline at personal and corporate levels. you have no other way to go than down. A new people power based on discipline and hunger to work hard and achieve some thing greater is now the motivator and catalyst. This is the currency for the upward mobile people of the new world. You are welcome if you change and shine your eyes. cheerio Romney boy. Wake up. It’s over for you.

    The satire sounds so shocking, but it’s true. Some people WILL vote for the person who offers them shiny things…or greasy things…as long as they feel like they’re getting something. I know a person who voted Obama simply because under the O administration, he got a free corneal transplant. That’s it. Who cares about policies, as long as I “get mine”?? Well, we create our own reality in the end.

    I used to wonder how some government officials could ever be elected. After reading these comments I have concluded that a vast majority of americans are far too gullible and don’t think to look at the other articles advertised beside the one they’re reading, or explicit information like the title: “The Daily Currant – The Global Satirical Newspaper of Record” If so many people are incapable of determining the validity of things such as the DUBIOUS ARTICLE above, then how can we move forward as a society. So many people get upset over who wins an election when they lack the common sense to determine which candidate to vote for. Oftentimes, when people dislike a new bill or a new tax increase, They blame whoever is in office and their party, but don’t realize that it must pass democratically. I used to wonder why we have so many problems as a country: I now understand this is because we are incompetant as a society. I dislike what I see.

  • Serendipita

    LOL!! Think I’ll pick up some Popeye’s chicken for lunch. Thanks Mr. Romney for the lunch idea! Yes, it is finger-lickin’ good, thank you very much. Oh, and no, Mr. Romney. Handing out fried chicken would not have won you the presidency. The problem is you’d still be Y-O-U!! But, hey, we’ll give you a break. Maybe we’ll take you in blackface with big white lips and white gloves dancing like a fool. Ya think!?!

    What “Black voters” are you talking about? Why is it that people describe their little world as if it’s the whole world? The Black people I know are educated, hard-working and worked all their lives and paid taxes, including property taxes, ALL THEIR LIVES. Stop being duped by racism to think “ALL” Black people are this way or that way. Just more racist lies.

    He is sold out to racism. He may not personally even know 1 Black person, much less the majority of Black people. Ignorance and stupidity is what it is.

And of course putting out that last DOOZY saying jeeps would be made in China ! That little lie cost you Ohio ! Oh yes, your “Self Deport” nonsense that didn’t make a bit of sense to anyone.

    In other words Mitt, it wasn’t a matter of giving “Free Stuff” away to anyone at all. It was your positions on everything, including your secrecy about your own financial affairs. All of these things made you, … Mitt Romney totally unacceptable to the majority of American voters to run our country.

    Either you live in a make believe world or you just wishful thinking that all black people are alike. The majority of blacks are hard working and will work two and three jobs to make ends meet. They are also very smart and to be honest it start all the way back during the slavery time when the white man was beating them to make them forget their home land, their native langage and ways. You talking about a group of people who could not speak english and yet they were call animals and treated like animals. They were smart enough to learn the language, but didn’t forget their own native language and ways but passed it on to their childrens. They worked in the master fields, kitchen, took care of the masters children and still went home and took care of their own. Even after slavery, even today they go to work .take care of the hard headed children and still go home andtake care of their own. They also now go to college, and work hard to send their children to college and see to it their children be responsible adults. The same can be said for most illegals who take dirty jobs or the low paying jobs that you wouldn;t take and work long hours picking vegetables or fruits , yet you still call them lazy, evidently you haven’t look in the mirror lately because all the group of people that republicans try to bringdown is steady climbing higherand higher and the republicans is falling by the wayside and don’t know how they got there. Hope you aren’t part of that group that hate people for no reason or you will probably all along with the rest of them.

    The point here is in the fact that though not true it could really be based on the nature of the subject. But you fools freaking out on one another is just plain stupid.

    Liberal & Conservatives both. C’mon. These debates below are the reason why America is not united.

    It’s obvious that The Daily Currant’s point (based on how so many react) is to create a political debate which unfortunately leads to nonsensical rhetoric and loaded with so fallacious responses.
