"Audio and new quotes from Mitt Romney's postmortem calls with donors have emerged in which the Republican nominee elaborates on his claim that "big gifts" from President Obama to minorities, youth, and women swung the election.

If this audio had come out two weeks ago, the tape would officially classify as yet another Romney gaffe.

On one such call, a recording of which was obtained by ABC, Romney explained that Obama's health care law, long considered one of the president's biggest vulnerabilities by top Republicans, actually rallied Democratic base voters against him. The former Republican nominee said Obama followed "a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they'll vote for you."*

Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies), and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) discuss Romney's suggestion the Democratic party offer free dental care in the future. Does he have a point, or is he an entitled man who isn't used to not being challenged?
