Romney On Controversial Fundraiser Remarks



This dick is putting the onus for clearing up his despicable comments on the person who has the video.

Lawrence (O'Donnell) on Romney's Press Conference: "That was a desperate man in a desperate situation."

Josh Marshall: "This tape strikes me as absolutely devastating."

4. The buck doesn't stop there

Only the billions.

He will take no accountability for anything negative and claim accountability for that which he didn't do if it was successful.

What an assHOLE!

no connectivity to the end points he discusses, he just drones on. Frankly, I would not even hire him if he wanted on my staff.

7. He seems to think the full video will help him

or at least a tape of the question he was responding to. When you say 47% of the country are self-imagined victims who won't take responsibility for their lives, what possible difference could the question make?

13. Unless the question was

"What could you say to offend 47% of the country and tank your campaign?", I'm pretty sure the whole video won't do Mittens any good.

20. The question was in the video

The guy says something about "the people" being on the government handout for the last 3-4 years. They are used to it, so how are you going to get them to vote for you?

21. The question was on the tape.

I initially thought it was Romney asking a hypothetical to lead into his statement.

Further attention revealed the question was asked by an attendee and was along the lines of "given the past three and a half years of being told the government will take care of you what do you (Romney) do in the next few months to convince people they need to step up and take care of themselves?"

The question doesn't help Romney in terms of context. If anything it makes him appear more heartless in his answer.

23. An awful answer...talk about self-inflicted wounds

He is routinely impolitic. Reminds of how he turned a softball from Brian Williams into quotes that alienated all of Britain.

26. The question was along the lines of:

For the last three years, we've heard, don't worry about it, we'll take care of you. What are you going to do to show you have to take care of yourself?

William H. Macy's, as the car dealer in "Fargo."

Except that Macy is a great actor.

16. If billionaires are so smart

 

Why did they pour millions into that?


They rob us middle class folks on a daily basis to dump stolen money down the sinkhole called Romney.


The "job creators" demonstrate their investing prowess yet again. Do we have to bail them out of paying for this Looney Tune campaign as well?

18. It's not that he got caught. It's that he said it at all.

Mitt’s Romney’s remarks to his fellow plutocrats went more viral than the Duchess’s hooters but no one is asking why he made them, even if he had no idea they would be shared with the unwashed of the world. Why would he admit to his real base that he has no chance of winning a fair election? When you spot your opponent 47 percent you are either giving a very early concession speech or asking the heavy hitters to use their financial clout to circumvent that pesky notion of democracy. While I would like to believe that Romney just signed his campaign’s death certificate, I am horrified that he would suggest to his inner circle of billionaires that their unfettered largesse to his death spiraling candidacy might still make a difference.

19. The arrogance of privilege.

I'd guess this has been Mitt's mindset all his life. These assholes often end up in fraternities and good ol' boy networks convincing themselves and each other that they are superior beings who deserve everything they have inherited and swindled.

25. How does he do it?

Somehow every time he hits bottom, he manages to dig deeper. I am always amazed at the stuff coming out of his mouth and his campaign. It seems like years ago we learned that because Mitt is an Anglo Saxon his relationship with the Brits is special. Guess that is why a crowd of 80,000 mocked him. And that "if you want free stuff vote for the other guy". Oh yeah now he is saying 47% of people are only interested in free stuff. Not, you know getting the government to help them with the kind of training you need to get a good job.

But, you know, they're just lazy sharks who wait around for other sea creatures to kill food for them, the deadbeats!

is anyone suspicious that this happened at all, let alone that Romney is embracing it?

What's in the "full material"?
