Mitt Romney held a meeting with his millionaire and billionaire peers earlier this year. Unbeknownst to him, a camera was rolling the entire time he was speaking to this group. In case you have not read about it or seen the videos, I would encourage you to click on over to this Mother Jones article. The real Mitt Romney introduces himself and reveals what he really thinks of nearly half of America…
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who 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. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what… These are people who pay no income tax.
My job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
If you plan on voting in this year’s elections (and I hope you do), you owe it to yourself to see who the Republican nominee really is. Please click on the link above.
UPDATE: Mitt Romney complained that his remarks were taken out of context. He wishes whoever released the video would have released the whole thing so people could understand what he really said. Seems his wish is Mother Jones’ command. The full video may be viewed at this link.
