Do You Consider Yourself A Victim? Mitt Romney Defends Video Stating 47% of Americans Are Freeloaders
In case you haven’t been following the latest in political news, a video has surfaced via writer David Corn and Mother Jones Magazine, of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney demeaning basically half of the country that he should be wanting to win support from.
While at a fundrasier for his campaign, Romney was taped stating that 47% of our voters today are supporters of President Barack Obama because they are americans that “… are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.”
It doesn’t end there. Mitt had the balls to admit he doesn’t care about half of America, mentioning that ”My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” But how can he ask to work for a country when its evident that he doesn’t even respect half of it’s citizens??
And since it was already stated in a recent poll [read here] that basically 0% of black americans are currently supporting Romney, you already know who he was partly referring to.
So who else was Romney referring to?? Perhaps it’s the disabled veterans who depend on the VA for their healthcare, or perhaps the retirees who depend on medicare and social security to live on. Perhaps we can add all college students who have borrowed money from the govenment to help support their education. And of course all of the hard working employed americans that actually do pay their federal, state and local taxes but then get some money back after deductions because they earn so little money.
Romney defended his remarks quickly in a press conference soon after the video surfaced, mentioning that he now admits that what he said was atleast “not elegantly stated.”
Check out the hidden video and Romney’s press conference response after the break and let me know what you think. Could this man put his foot in his mouth any deeper??
