Rep King: 2012 Election Was ‘Santa Claus Vs. Personal Responsibility’
At Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s birthday fundraiser on Saturday night, Republican Rep. Steve King echoed Mitt Romney’s recent remark that President Barack Obama won the race by giving “gifts” to certain demographics.
“Well, he did,” King told The Daily Caller, when asked for his thoughts on Romney’s comment that Obama had promised gifts to Hispanics, blacks and young voters. “It was Santa Claus versus personal responsibility and fiscal responsibility.”
King said that, in his analysis, too much of the electorate wants to rely on government.
