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.
Mitt Romney on Barack Obama:
Frankly we have two very different views about America. The presidents view is one of a larger government. Theres 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, thats 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. Were a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives We believe in free people and free enterprises.

OMG!!! Someone smacking back!!! He hits you, you hit back TWICE AS HARD.
The worm is turning, funny
Go, Mitt, Go!!
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.
Don’t stop at the debates. Keep them running past the election.
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.
What a shocking coincidence ...
maybe he can get some college entrance documentation along with some of Obama’s college paper’s...
I believe this is the same thing Joe the Plumber surmised back in ‘08 when he called Hussein a socialist, isn’t it?
Fair play would be the media playing this as much the Romney fundraiser one, but I’m not betting my next oil bill on that.
Refreshing and encouraging.
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 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.
