Never Forget: What Romney Called "Entitlements". Then Look at His "Stuff":
Last edited Fri Nov 9, 2012, 12:52 PM - Edit history (1)
Copy it; it's being scrubbed in favor of Romney's later and phony "I was wrong":
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney is shown saying in a video posted online by the magazine. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that 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."
"Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax," Romney said.
Romney said his role "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
HEALTH CARE. FOOD. HOUSING. HE AND HIS PARTY SEE NO ROLE FOR GOVERNMENT TO HELP AMERICANS WITH THE BASIC NECESSITIES LITERALLY OF LIFE. I MEAN----FOOD?!?! NO; THE MOST, WHICH EVEN IT HE WON'T DEIGN TO DO, IS LECTURE POOR PEOPLE ABOUT "PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY."
NOW GAZE at what Romney feels are his due, because he was a BIDNESSMAN:

1. I don't mind people being rich ....
... but I do deeply resent people living in poverty, without healthcare, while the wealthy refuse to fulfill their part of the social contract.
Straight, but not narrow.
