Mitt Romney got caught on tape at a fundraiser badmouthing 47% of Americans and says he plans "not to worry about those people".
He says the Americans who will vote for Obama are dependent on the government and accuses them of playing the victim.
Romney says Obama voters "believe the government has a responsibility to care for them".
He says Obama voters feel "entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it". Yeah, being healthy, having food and a place to live for Obama voters is apparently an "entitlement". But Romney claims that if you vote for Obama, you'll want all those things from the govt.
Romney says the people who won't vote for him "pay no income tax" and that he'll never convince them so he's not going to even bother.
In other words, Romney just sent out a big 'F ck You' to all those who chose to vote for Obama and stereotyped ALL of the people who choose the current president.
Hearing and seeing what Romney really thinks when he doesn't think he's being taped is highly enlightening. It confirms all of the suspicions and narratives about "Mr. 1%" and what he thinks about those who aren't stupid enough to vote for him.
In the secretly recorded video, Romney is telling a room full of rich people that "those people" who support Obama are basically lazy, moochers who want government to take care of them.
This is made all the more ridiculous because Romney is no stranger to corporate welfare. He was caught on tape years ago giving a seminar on how to get as much money from the government as possible.
In addition, Romney has done everything earthly possible to avoid paying taxes, including reportedly keeping money in tax havens like the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.
And this is JUST one of the video clips released. Here's more:
