( I won’t blame you if you can’t bring yourself to watch all of this. I’ve never seen such a ridiculous mess of ads, but the gist of it is explained in the article on that page.)
I am increasingly disgusted by the lack of respect that Mitt Romney has for the American people. His position is that “47% of the people will vote for Obama no matter what” and if you are one of those 47%, he doesn’t even want your vote, because in his eyes you are nothing but a lazy, useless, leech on society. His reasoning is that if you pay no income tax, then you believe you are a victim and you believe the government should support you entirely so you don’t have to take any responsibility for yourself.If you have ever had a lean year in your life..if you were ever a struggling student..or a retiree on a fixed income.. you should be so angry right now you can’t see straight. I’ve had enough lean years myself that I know that no normal person chooses to live impoverished, but lots of people find themselves there and work their butts off to get out. Maybe Romney knows people who are somehow happy and comfortable living in poverty, but my guess is he has no idea what he’s talking about. But there it is — this is the real Republican party now, the real Mitt Romney, who thinks because he grew up priviledged, that makes him a better person than someone who has to struggle to make ends meet. I will never vote for this man or anyone else who thinks like he does and I am begging you not to do so either. What really puzzles me is why Mr. Silver Spoon thinks all his trust fund friends are not leeches. If they live off of investment income and pay no income taxes, by his reasoning wouldn’t that make them Obama supporters?
