The insight comes to us via Mother Jones magazine, which obtained a tape of Romney talking to a $50,000-a-plate fund-raiser this past May. A room full of fat cats like him. And the remarks which came to light have raised a lot a hell. As well they might because Romney says exactly what he really thinks of Obama supporters. Here's what he had to say about them:
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.The words speak for themselves. This man has first, no idea what he's talking about. The people who don't pay income tax comprise many of the elderly, slews of people who are working and paying payroll taxes, but who are not making enough money to pay income tax, and others. But the worst part of this statement is the contempt with which this multimillionaire holds the ordinary people of the country. Dismissing them as basically freeloaders, people who feel "entitled." It's really hard for me to fathom that anybody with a brain, much less a conscience, could be so misinformed about people. But here's a guy who believes his own bullshit. It's his true colors.This guy's a rat.
