Mitt will tell You People that food, shelter and health care are NOT entitlements!


So all you 47% of moochers and leeches who voted for Obama better get used to a new regime when the Vulture/Voucher ticket takes over.  David Corn at Mother Jones has a video up, which they have vetted and believe to be authentic, (and, though Mitt is a small figure on the upper right, it is undoubtedly him and speaks with his voice) of the Mittster speaking to a bunch of VVRPs* at a fund raising dinner and, not expecting to be filmed by what appears to be a You People wait staff person, expounds not only on his strategery for gulling the undecided independents but also expresses his contempt at the expectations of a social safety net by the Middles and Poors.  Lest you think I’m kidding here is Willard himself:

    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.

Romney went on: “[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

Honestly I think the only sane response to this is a hearty FUCK YOU MITT!!

But it definitely provides a window into his thinking as to what programs will be slashed to the bone or eliminated altogether in order to fund huge tax cuts for the very wealthy.

Oh, and something tells me a lot of the TeePees might just fit into this category of making too little to pay federal income taxes (no statistics, just sayin’, based on, you know, pictures and stuff).  They’ll really be thrilled when their disability payments are cut and food stamps disappear.  Because food is not an entitlement, remember?  Just chant USA USA USA a few times and those hunger pangs will just dissolve away.

Corn promises more to come from the video so stay tooned!

P.S.  One more take:

At the dinner, Romney also said that the campaign purposefully was using Ann Romney “sparingly…so that people don’t get tired of her.”

Psst, Mitt?  We already are.

That was said at a $50k a plate fundraiser. That’s more than the folks he’s bad-mouthing make in a year. What a disgrace.

The most galling thing is even we poor folk, whose paychecks wouldn’t constitute pocket change for Mitt do pay Federal taxes, or do my tired eyes deceive me each time I look at a pay stub? Now I may get some of that back the following year, but it’s pennies on the dollar of what is taken out.

Also, the reason Mitt won’t release those tax returns is because he knows he pays a lower rate than I do.

Exactly true HB, exactly!

You know, even if I were a Repub, I’d REALLY have a problem with a man who makes so many mistakes. We all get verbal diarrhea sometimes,. but Romney seems to get it with frightening frequency. I’d be concerned one day his words would one day put us in a war just because it wasn’t “elegantly said.” Whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean.
