Perhaps, eventually, I’ll write something about this, but, for now, just watch all these videos. 🙂
Mitt Romney on Obama Voters: “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.
I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49 .. He starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. 47 percent of Americans pay no income tax, so our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. He’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every four years, and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center, that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other, depending, in some cases, on emotion, whether they like the guy or not…”
