7 weeks out from the election and Mitt Romney makes the statement that best represents how He really feels.
THEN STANDS BEHIND IT!!!!!!
In case you have been under a rock the past day or so, check out what Mitt Romney said on hidden tape.
Taped with a hidden camera at a private fund-raising event this past May, the video shows Romney telling his donors that nearly half of Americans back President Barack Obama because they rely on government support.
Here's the exact quote:
(Quote)"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. ... My job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." (End Quote)
Of course a Tea party spokesman (Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for Tea Party Patriots) has rushed to his defense saying , essentially, what Romney said.
So let me get this straight...Mitt Romney IS NOT concerned with almost HALF the country but wants YOUR vote?
Not only is that outrageous...but its even MORE outrageous to openly say (in so many words)..Yeah, I said it!! Now what?
I doubt it seriously if Mitt Romney would have said this statement at the Republican National Convention or on any Nationally televised event.
And Yet there is all this foolish talk of "Black Clergy" "telling" their "flocks" NOT to vote?? (see SOAR blog 9/16 post) I feel its again time to stand up for what we feel is right and to ban together to continue moving forward.
SOAR Opinion: GO VOTE!!
