Want to know what Mitt Romney thinks of you if you are a committed supporter of Barack Obama? Check out today’s Mother Jones:
“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.”
That’s just for starters. Romney was recorded at a fundraiser with some wealthy supporters last spring — insulting and stereotyping almost half the people in the country. Even if you’re somewhere among the 10% or so of undecided voters that he hopes to appeal to and therefore isn’t talking about here, it’s insulting. Heaven help us all if a man with an attitude like this gets elected president.
This is only one of several videos on Mother Jones. Be sure to check the others. The story ends with a promise of more to come.
Note: Rachel Maddow was all over this story this evening, including an interview with David Corn, author of the Mother Jones story.
