    Leaked Video: Romney says not his job to worry about "those people" who need healthcare, food, housing or those who don't pay taxes.

    In the video, Romney states, "“There are 47 percent who are with him," (referring to Obama) " 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,” Romney said.

    He added that his job "is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

    No wonder gay rights don't mean anything to him if half the population doesn't either.

    What the heck does he mean that 47% of the people are dependent on government? ...
    Not everyone is mormon where their church supports them and their business's try to only hire their own.
    Maybe if he wasn't so interested in acquiring his own and his churches wealth without regard for his fellow country, people would still have their jobs instead of shipping off to China and other markets.
    An excuse of 'just doing business' will not save him from the fires of Hell .... they are called moral values ... of which he has none ... what good does it do to not drink alcohol and coffee or smoke smoke cigarettes, when your soul is blacker than coal. Burn in Hell mutha fuka!

    Romney fucked himself.

    I'm sure this will be all over the news tomorrow.

    It certainly shows his true colors. While some may have had a bit of faith in him to work on behalf of the country.... how can that be achieved when he basically says he doesn't give a shit about half of Americans.

    But on inauguration day, he would fully expect us to believe him when he said he is the president of all Americans.

    Presidents are SUPPOSED to be.... but he's blown the cover of that common misconception.

    He's out for himself and his rich donors. Period.

    (Which basically means he's against everyone else... and will work against the best interest of at least half the people in the country if he's elected.)

    I just love that commercial where he say "It's time to stand up to the cheaters" (I say that fecisiously)... my God .. even the dumbest ass in his party should be able to see he is the cheater with back accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. I'm with you GuyNextDoor ... he's just lie on top of lie .

    I read once the Mormon religion believes that Jesus and Satan were brothers and which one you actually follow doesn't matter ... I think we can tell which one he's following

    Romney stated, regarding Hispanics...

    “My dad…was born in Mexico,” Romney said in one clip. “Had he been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this…I mean, I say that jokingly. But it would be helpful to be Latino.”

    “If the Hispanic voting bloc becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American voting block has in the past, why, we’re in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation,” Romney said.

    Even David Brooks, an old-fashioned conservative I often disagree with, has this to say:

    “This comment suggests a few things. First, it suggests that he really doesn’t know much about the country he inhabits. Who are these freeloaders? Is it the Iraq war veteran who goes to the V.A.? Is it the student getting a loan to go to college? Is it the retiree on Social Security or Medicare?

    “…The people who receive the disproportionate share of government spending are not big-government lovers. They are Republicans. They are senior citizens. They are white men with high school degrees. As Bill Galston of the Brookings Institution has noted, the people who have benefited from the entitlements explosion are middle-class workers, more so than the dependent poor.

    “…The final thing the comment suggests is that Romney knows nothing about ambition and motivation. The formula he sketches is this: People who are forced to make it on their own have drive. People who receive benefits have dependency.

    “But, of course, no middle-class parent acts as if this is true. Middle-class parents don’t deprive their children of benefits so they can learn to struggle on their own. They shower benefits on their children to give them more opportunities — so they can play travel sports, go on foreign trips and develop more skills.

    “… as a description of America today, Romney’s comment is a country-club fantasy. It’s what self-satisfied millionaires say to each other. It reinforces every negative view people have about Romney.”

    With the surfacing of this video, Romney has lost the election.

    I think many in America had already made an assumption that he was really this way, but it was at least somewhat tempered by political spin that he was a good family man who cares about others.

    This video shows what he REALLY thinks and dispels the spin for the crap that it is.

    He's a disgusting human being.... and a disgrace to both his "religion" and to G-d.

    ^ALL OF THAT. Make sure you're eligible to vote in your district, AND can jump through whatever ID hoops have been installed as well!

    I've seen all kinds of GOP responses suggesting, "Obama's got this thing all wrapped up now," and suspect these are the same kinds of folks that will robocall likely Dem voters right before the election, either to "thank you for securing a win for the Democrats. No need to do anything else, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the results!", or to remind us that "Election Day is November 7th. Now don't you forget!!!" icon_lol.gif

    It is time someone starts pointing out that those Republicans supporting Romney are also taking from the governement in the form of Social Security, Medicare, Veterans Benefits, Student loans, Housing loans etc. The common belief is that it is only welfare, food stamps and medicaid and that is what they keep putting out there. I think the video brings it all out in the open, and hope the Democrats don't let it rest!

    It makes me laugh.....


    Because there is NOT ONE .... NOT ONE of those people in that room including Romney himself who didn't use and take money from the Government in order to make money with their businesses

    They are the same as the Teabag idiots who yell Don't Touch my Medicare and then espouse the virtues of the Ryan plan icon_rolleyes.gif

    Agree, complacency will kill us, and allow this hater of the American middle class to win.

    BTW, not only did I successfully vote in our recent Florida primary, confirming my eligibility hadn't yet been robbed by Gov. Rick Scott (R), but I used an online check. It was in an Obama campaign e-mail last week, and when I used the link, it confirmed I hadn't been purged from the voter roles - so far. I'll use it again as voting approaches.

    Mitt Romney - Class Warrior:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/19/opinion/mitt-romney-class-warrior.html?smid=tw-share&_rmoc.semityn.www

    Mitt is out to right the horrible wrong that's being inflicted upon the richest 1-2% of Americans.
    Forcing them to pay their taxes.

    Mitt is obviously a firm believer that only "the little people" should have to pay taxes.

    And let's not forget the biggest entitlement of the all: Tax write-offs
    Seriously, we let the wealthy and major corporations actually write off their over-head ... uh .. that's your problem, it's called the price of survival

    What was truly interesting about this video was how at ease Romney spoke, like liquid gold the words just flowed from his mouth and you could tell they were not rehearsed or written down in speech form. Yet when he gets up in front of the American public you can hear him chomping down on the words with unease. That's because every word he speaks to the American people is a filthy lie of deception.

    Well, the voters (including Republicans) have been begging for some specifics from the Romney campaign, outlining what Romney stands for.

    THERE YOU GO.

    He couldn't have said it any more plainly.

    Those people dont speak like they were just approached on the street. They sound very staged.
