Mitt Romney Video Leaks, Basically Calls Obama Supporters Freeloaders
It seems like Mittington Romnom RoboRomney has officially set his pants on fire.
In a video leaked to Mother Jones, Mitt Romney describes Obama's supporters as people "who believe that they are victims," are "dependent on the government," and "who pay no income tax."
You think you deserve help? You should get a job! You should also have a father who was an automobile executive. PFFT. ROBOROMNEY HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR YOU.
Romney also tells the crowd of 1 percenters at the private fundraiser that he would definitely win the presidency if only he were Mexican. And they laugh and laugh because ain't nothing funnier than the image of a dirty Mexican presidente!
*I veto dis bill, señor! Adale! Andale! Arriba!!* LOLOL
When a donor asked him how he can win in November, Romney responds:
"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."
Forty-seven percent of people are too poor to pay income taxes and are just sucking on that government teat like the worthless pieces of shit they are. So, hey, screw them! They'll vote for this president because they think being able to get life-saving medicine and help from doctors so they don't die is an actual human right. How! Dare! They!
Later on during the fundraiser, Romney yuks it up with his fellow fat cats about how if only he were a Mexican he'd totally be president.
"My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico... and uh, had he been born of uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this. But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino."
More of the fundraiser can be seen at Mother Jones. And it's a doozy.
But just in these two clips alone we can deduce one simple fact: Mitt Romney is pretty much a cartoon supervillain.
He's also an asshole of the highest order.
So, OK, two things.
