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.”[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
So…do you think the Right Wing Media Machine will denounce Romney’s words as harshly as they did Obama’s “Clinging to guns and religion” video?
As someone who took financial help from the Government once (when I was laid off under the early years of the Bush Administration)…who has been taking full responsibility for my care ever since…as a small business owner? I find it pathetic that Reince Priebus defends it as on message. I find it offensive that Romney thinks he can gain my support by turning me against others who might be struggling a bit harder than me.
