Re "Romney attributes Obama win to 'gifts'" (Tribune, Nov. 16):

Gov. Mitt Romney is now lamely blaming his lost election on voters who are susceptible to "very generous" big policy gifts like health care and affordable student loans, "especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people."

Setting aside the fact that's he's wrong, Romney's whine can't be called sour grapes. It's just sour. And it's unbecoming of a serious candidate for the presidency, win or lose.
