Just when you think you can’t hear anything dumber out of U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s mouth, he gets you again. This recent foot-in-the-mouth moment was caught on tape at a private fundraiser for about 30 donors, where Romney again showed his true colors by insisting that literally half of all Americans are pathetic ne’er-do-wells:
Here’s the video:
“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the President [Obama] no matter what. Alright, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing!”
If Americans aren’t insulted by Romney’s dripping disdain for the middle class, they sure as hell should be. At the same fundraiser, he laughingly admited he was “born with a silver spoon.”
And if Mitt Romney gets elected, we sure as hell shouldn’t be surprised when the economy tanks again. The wealth will be so heavily concentrated with a few hundred families that very few Americans will be able to afford to participate in our consumer-based economy.
