Someone clue me in here. I don’t have TV anymore (cut it off two weeks ago) and am not finding anything on Drudge related to this .... is there a video posted somewhere to tell me what the hecks’ going on?
He should be APPLAUDED for telling the TRUTH! And, he should do MORE OF IT!!!
The gist of it, from what I can see so far.
Somebody recorded Mitt Romney talking at a private fundraiser where he said two supposedly controversial things, and then released it on “Mother ‘van’ Jones”.com
“If I was Hispanic, things would be easier.”
... pretty obvious that this is just a fact
“I don’t expect the 47% of the country on welfare to vote for me.”
This has been making its rounds on news sites and will likely be blown up by the MSM tomorrow as “Romney hates poor people and old people and military veterans.” Even some Freepers believe this is the case, but some are praising Romney for beating up on government welfare.
It’s a mess.
In my opinion, it was kind of a gaffe, because Romney failed to recognize that not all of the 47% are moochers, though some ARE. Some of those people are vets and the elderly who cannot pay income tax. The statement is too harsh for the general public. It’s not something horrifying, we all can admit to forgetting to take into consideration those that need assistance and deserve it when we get angry with the moochers... BUT... if there is a single conservative, veteran, elderly or otherwise that will not vote against Obama because of this statement, then I must announce this party DOA. Imagine if the DemoRats had the same attitude to Obama’s ridiculous statements. He’d be behind 40 points. Everybody should be willing to crawl through broken glass to kick bozo out, and if that isn’t the case, then we should throw in the towel right now.
My two cents.
