MITT HAMMERS OBAMA OVER SHOCKING TAPE! He Wants Redistribution I Disagree! (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9-18-2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/18/2012 1:50:11 PM PDT by servo1969

That was quick… Less than an hour ago Drudge posted video of Barack Obama telling an audience in 1998 that he believes in redistribution of wealth. Mitt Romney was just on Your World with Cavuto and hammered the president over this shocking admission. “He wants redistribution of wealth. I disagree.”

(video)

Mitt Romney on Barack Obama:

“Frankly we have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

Touché.

Romney:

Quit calling it WEALTH! It is not just WEALTH that obastard wants to redistribute it is ALL EARNINGS AND PROPERTY.

People need to understand this. NOBODY who owns or earns is excluded from the redistribution scheme except for the ruling class elites like obastard.

It was a good interview. The White House response so far has been WEAK. “the president represents all people”... WEAK!

Romney and his surrogates (looking at you, Sununu” need to continue pile-driving Obama on this. Throw in criticism of leaving our consulate defenseless and we can put the Rats on defense all the way to the debates.

Mitt has been pretty damn strong on Conservative values.

He has said the things that need to be said — and will be held to it (unlike libtards who only care about words not actions).

Is FR still against Mitt?

Maybe the Romney campaign can extend a hand to James O’Keefe and hire him. He is pretty good at his sting operations.

I am so happy to have a candidate who dishes it out.

I don’t want low class, low blows, sneering or innuendo. But to take it to the mat and call garbage out, I love it.

Was very pleased by Romney’s response on Cavuto’s show. Very well done.

The only place he needs to respond a little differently is on the issue of that percentage of the 47% (elderly, military, etc.) that don’t pay taxes but will vote his way. I think it’s pretty clear he was conflating the tax rate with Obama’s baked in support. He should just admit that was the case and then frame it the way he did.

If he sticks with this he will finally have an argument that is precise and persuasive.

First Mitt says that half the country wants a free ride from the government (TRUTH), then he shows that Obama believes in wealth redistribution (TRUTH, well, duh.). And the media has a cow. Let us not speak the truth in such matters lest it expose us for who we really are. Go Mitt!

That clip from 1998 is nothing, go listen to the one from 2001 on NPR in Chicago on the court, the constitution, and redistribution, far more radical.

We all missed the interview he (Obama) gave to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2008 about killing the coal industry. It was there in the open for months and no one found it.

We should have a project on FR to methodically comb through everything and find things he has said.
Bet there is something damaging out there.

Good to see him with some fight, but a little too bad for his out-of-touch rich guy image that redistribution is what seems to really get his juices going.

Also, by taking a stand against ‘redistribution’ he’s opening himself up to claims that he’ll take away the ‘safety net’ for the infirm.

Excellent point!

If we called it what it is -- income redistribution, or, maybe, paycheck redistribution -- it would have more impact as well as being more accurate.

RomneyCare(tm) is a huge indictment.

He needs to apologize for RomneyCare, refute its intellectual basis, and admit the hated 0bamaCare is fully based on RomneyCare.

After he renounces his promotion of straight-up Socialism, I could be fully on board.

In the mean time, it is good to hear any conservative position upheld in public, even if I don’t trust Romney (see above.)

Well it is about time. However mitt just does not come across as hard hitting. I want to see him angrily demanding obama explain what happened to our libya, eqypt, our consulate and our economy. In 4 years o bama has destroyed a country. He also needs to ask “barney fife” to identify all responsible for not allowing guards to have bullets in a muslim country on 9/11.

Was Sununu like this ‘way back when’? I recall the name, but don’t recall him being so outspoken - he’s quite an effective ‘attack dog’. To my great enjoyment, he makes mincemeat of the media interviewing him .... great spokesperson for Romney.

I completely understand your line of thought, but for me he has already passed the test—he’s not Obama.

It wasn’t easy for me to get there and it took some time (I am very stubborn), but there is no way that I can take another 4 years of Obama and the filthy democrats screwing with my life.

Anything conservative.... is better than nothing conservative.

People love to live under the illusion that trouble is going to happen to somebody else.

Dad had a picture near his desk of a view through a rifle scope of a couple of bears. One was pointing to the other.

The droning mantra of “redistribution of WEALTH” makes the lemmings think of the other bear. When the “WEALTHY” are chopped down who is next in line?

Stupid people.

I know I am probably wrong on this but, I have been wondering since the convention if Romney might be forced by circumstances to begin to govern conservatively. These events recently certainly makes one take a stand. But, then you must stand by your word. (GHW Bush did not and it cost him.)

Leaving the consulates/embassies unprotected was nothing next to his causing Our nation to facilitate the downfall of the secular governments of Egypt and Libya. What’s happening now wasn’t foreseeable, it was the only possible outcome. America will be expected (and rightly so) to try and put out the flames of Muslim rage and violence that it, through the person and policies of president hussein, incited.

I don’t see how you put this genie back in the bottle short of using armed force, which won’t happen, or else Bibi taking matters into his own hands. Regardless, the cost to America and the West will be incalculable.

Still can’t believe our media, alone in the world and in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, is still parroting the WH and State Dept. lies that all this violence and unrest was spurred by a silly YouTube video. Simply embarrassing to those of us still capable of shame.

My first instinct was that this could be a turning point in his campaign...and can be turned to win over lingering undecideds. The talk radio crew said the same today, and it looks like Mitt may follow suit.
