If it’s Tuesday, it’s Mitt Romney caught making another gaffe. Only this time, it’s much, much worse.
On this video, filmed at a fundraiser in a wealthy donor’s mansion, the Republican can be heard disparaging people who will vote for President Obama.
“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.”
Then, like a GOP country club plutocrat, he shocking dismisses 47% of Americans at the economic bottom, adding:
“My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
