Romney: If You Want Free Stuff, Vote for Obama By Noah Glyn March 20, 2012 2:07 P.M.
As Kathryn noted, Romney had an effective response to a woman who told him, Youre all for like Yay freedom and all this stuff and yay pursuit of happiness. You know what would make me happy? Free birth control.
Video at link.
His statement is correct.
The kid is a complete fool/tool.
Romney should have added, when Obama is done giving out free stuff, your generation will be in debt up to your eyeballs and America is finished.
I think he should have thought that out a bit.
Obama is going to run his campaign based on giving stuff for free, from birth control to mortgage relief and student loan bailouts to food and free medical care and who knows what all else.
They will paint Romney as a guy who not only won’t give you stuff, he’ll take stuff away, the greedy rich white guy.
It will be a vastly expanded version of the old “scare the old” routine where the Republicans want to take soshakurity away from old people.
And now Mitt endorsed that! If you want the free stuff, you all know what to do!
Mitt finally growing a pair???
To bad he didn’t just say “you want free stuff vote for the other guy, next question”.
“They will paint Romney as a guy who not only wont give you stuff, hell take stuff away, the greedy rich white guy.”
Hillary 2007: “We’re going to take things away from you for the Common Good!”
Not a bad answer. I would have preferred something like “There is no such thing as free stuff. Only stuff that is stolen from other people..the government forcibly takes $1 from person A, and gives person B $0.50 worth of stuff..”
Your answer is much, much better
lol Yes! But when a prog says it, they usually mean rich people, and I think Hillary was speaking from the “take from the greedy people who have too much”, not take it away from everybody. The progs certainly understood what she meant.
Romney, otoh, will take away WIC, birth control, abortion, health care, food assistance, all from poor people because rich people become rich on the backs of the poor, to follow the storyboard.
He should have said, vote for me, you’ll have a job, then you could afford birth control.
Romney: “If You Want Free Stuff, Vote for Obama
but if you want to be free from your stuff and give it to the government, vote for MEEEEEEEEEEEE”
The child who made that “I want free birth control” statement is an idiot. With a capital I.
Hmmm.. I like it as a bumper sticker.

Are they teaching that Free Stuff = Freedom in schools these days?
I have to give him credit - he handled this perfectly.
Where has THIS Mitt been hiding? If Romney talked and acted like this all the time (and followed through), I might just be willing to support the guy for nominee, LOL.
What a nasty piece of work that girl who asked the question was, btw. I’m am so freaking tired of the “Gimme, gimme, gimme!” mentality.
Too easy of a setup for Romney to answer.
>>Are they teaching that Free Stuff = Freedom in schools these days?<<
Probably. They sure won’t teach the truth: Free Stuff = Slavery.
Not interested in what the JackAss, Progressive Liberal, Issue Shape-Shifter Mitt Romney has to say.
He will lose in landslide proportions against Obama if he is the nominee.

I agree — it was a great off-the-cuff remark.
I wish he had tossed her a quarter and said “here, put this between your knees.”
Most guys I know provide their own condoms. I keep mine neatly stacked on an antique hotel invoice spike. Haven’t lost one yet!
Yes, he did. Both Mitt and Newt have been scathing on Obama. I'm still a Rick guy but I wish he'd do the same. Obama's failed policies have been served up on a silver platter for this election.
Romney will have a hard time differentiating himself from BO. If he is thinking he can out-smear his opponent in the general election, he is in for a surprise. Moreover, I think he is a squish when running against liberals. He will only go scorched earth against conservative opponents.
I don’t know, I thought he was a tad tepid in his reply, personally. Newt would’ve made mince-meat out of that idiot, and it would’ve been a pleasure to watch.
Romney: If you want free stuff, vote for Obama...(and reported by the “under-his-breath news crew” he muttered, “unless it’s government funds to pick up the pieces after grotesque medicare fraud....heh, heh, heh...”)
Free Birth Control is not free. Government break your leg then give you a crunch then tell you, see without me, you can not walk and its those republicans fault
I don’t usually gather underlying base profundities from Rush Limbaugh, but today he said something that struck a chord....
liberals consider their lack of core values to BE freedom.
If I thought that any liberal actually could think and discuss logically,
I’d ask - “free to whom?”
If somewhere, someone has to pay for the process to produce anything that’s “free”, it’s not free.
But, then again, you have folks who believe in “0bama’s stash”.
Newt said that to a gay guy and from that moment on never got a vote again. When Newt was in the primary, he was doing well, but the minute he said that he lost and never recovered and now is not even campaigning. Maybe when he was in the primary, he only received votes from gays...lol.
Problem is, they can`t be convinced to believe that fact. The prevailing thought is, “Someone else will pay for it.”
This girl who asked him the question is your typical commie Obama supporter, with her hands out waiting for free stuff..there is a portion of our population that loves Obama because they think he will give them “Obama money” and other treats, what they don’t understand is NOTHING in this world is free, it will cost someone something, but they don’t care as long as they get “Free” stuff without having to work for it. I am shocked that Romney actually gave a pretty good answer to this
There ain’t no such thing as “free stuff”.
That woman is a member of the FSA (Free Sh*t Army)
He should have said “if you want the PROMISE of free stuff, vote for Obama”.
Then gone on to say, what might be given free to one is actually taken from another.
But I’m sure that most of his supporters don’t mind stuff they are given to be taken from someone else. To them working people are all evil anyway.
It is nice to see all you Freepers not bashing Romney for a change...
Yes, Romney should have gone with something more in line with your answer. Romney’s answer is a non-paid-for Obama ad. Many people are looking for free stuff.
Uh oh! The majority of Americans want free stuff.
Not breaking news...
You’re forgetting, FRiend, that progs don’t want to pay for anything themselves. In their minds, clamoring for “free” stuff now will never catch up to them in a few years.
This cannot be true. Certain conservative individuals right here on FR have told me there is NO difference between Willard and Obama and, therefore, if Willard wins the nomination, we should favor Obama over Willard if we want 4 more years (of Obama) rather than 8 (of Obamney).
My first thought too. If we're past the tipping point, we're screwed.
lol,that’s exactly what I thought. We must be jaded.
mitt finally growing a pair/
More like one of his staffers told him to copy Newt, who did this about 3-4 months ago. Someone went on and on at
some gathering about why wouldn’t he do thus and such to
which he resoponded ‘then i’m not your guy. You should probably vote for obama’. You didn’t know? The media didn’t cover it? Weird!/s
Our President reminds me somewhat of Caligula, he was narcissistic and gave away stuff to appease the masses.
Personally, I think we are past the tipping point. But we must assume we are not past the tipping point or that we can convince enough people to shift back to the correct side.
I would have liked to hear “if you want free stuff at the expense of others, vote for Obama. If you want to be a burden on society, Obama’s your guy!”
