Mitt Romney in videos released today, spoke candidly to a group of wealthy donators. In the videos he describes Obama supporters pretty much freeloaders who feel entitled to things, like food and health care. He made jokes about Mexicans which I am sure will win him the Hispanic vote, saying this such as “Had he been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot of winning this.” on this father.
In a rather damning move, he decided to speak of Obama supporters:
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.
Let’s take a look at a map which depicts what states have the highest percent of non-payers of income tax:
My my, it appears as though Romney is speaking of his own states. The states most likely to vote republican have the highest amount of non-payers of income tax.
Romney is showing just how out of touch he is.
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.
