Posted on 09/17/2012 3:23:38 PM PDT by TigerClaws
During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don't assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:
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.

“...and in other news, water remains wet and the Sun will come up in the morning. Back to you, Biff.”
No doubt, but he would be better served by stating what the president has done and how it has hurt than to try his hand at prophecy. That is my opinion, and to that end, Romney is disappointing me.
When did Mother Jones start writing campaign Ads for Romney?
“Mother Jones” should hear what I think of Obama voters.
I don’t see a problem. Who could forget such classics as, “We want our free stuff from Omaba’s stash! “
Can’t disagree with anything Romney said there, except I think its more like 50 percent instead of 47 percent. Instead of saying this to private donors he needs to say this to EVERYONE because its true and this is what Obama wants, the more people reliant on Govt the more votes he will get.
He forgot the self-loathing white liberals.
He could have said that they bitterly cling to their EBT cards and their Section 8 housing vouchers.
I was gonna post this but didn’t know if we could post from Mother Jones.
My former boss, who is a democrat, used to give me his Mother Jones magazines to read but after a couple of issues I could no longer do it. They are so far left I couldn’t even take it seriously.
I don’t think it’s 47%...maybe closer to 40%.
If Obama wins, it’s time to John Galt and collapse the welfare system through less tax revenue and more “middle class” handouts.
Food stamps are useless when grocery stores are gone or so few left it raises prices.
“He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them.”
Not sure I give Mittens credit for having the “attachments” to make such a statement.
Other than that, it is completely accurate except it leaves out the part about hating America, which is also integral to supporting that idiot Zero.
OMG this is going to send the left O V E R the edge.
I see them making this into Romney’s “bitter clingers” remark...
Spot on. Romney told the truth - dog vs the fleas
Sounds like Willard nailed them.
Mother Jones is named in conjunction with Socialist Mary Harris...Dont give them an in...they need viewers and wish Free Republic sends people their way.
Nothing but distortions comes out of that site.
