Romney Admits 'Heart Is Not With America'

Last edited Fri Oct 5, 2012, 05:51 AM - Edit history (2)





One line in the debate stood out for me. Actually the President even chuckled after Mitt said it.

"The place you put your money makes a pretty clear indication where your heart is!"

It speaks volumes about Mitt Romney and his wanting to be President to help America. The truth is Mitt wants to be President because it is the rich man's version of putting on his father's State Trooper uniform and acting like he's the man.

Well, when he tells the truth in this short clip from the 2012 Presidential Debate, it was the one thing that rang true.

2. I haven't heard it yet - probably still reeling from reviews


but the first debate will be old news by the time the election rolls around, and both sides know that -- I'm thinking the far right is saving their surprise attack for 12 days before the election to see if they can rattle folks at the polls - not that it'll help with absentee ballots, but with the rest

Rove has his little games planned no doubt

4. Funny - every time he accidentally tells the truth, it hurts his campaign.

Go figure.

20. Where your treasure is, is where your heart is, also.

It is disgraceful for Romney's campaign slogan to be
'believe in America', when he obviously doesn't.

7. Too bad Obama didn't zing him on that one - "then your heart must be in the Cayman Islands"

That also would likely have pissed off Mitt and thrown him off his script.

8. If Rmoney loves this country so much why doesn't he invest his money in it?

I've been saying this all along. No MSM pundit ever calls him out on this that his investments overseas to avoid US taxes are unpatiotic and unAmerican.

9. This is why Trickle Down was such a sham.

And the Bush tax cuts. They were give-aways to the wealthy who had no intention of "re-investing" in America.

They didn't uphold their part of the bargain...

21. Romney's children do it, and his grandchildren will do it too, since

they see there are no repercussions from tax cheating, by stashing their money overseas.
It is a disgrace, and a shame that this man has so many supporters and he is a tax cheat, hiding money in other countries.
So unpatriotic, and so damaging to our economy.

11. To be fair to Romney, he was only referring to the 99%. This platitude does not apply to himself.

(also I looked for a "pants-on'fire" thingy, but don't see one. Too bad, sure would be handy this campaign season)

12. I watched a show on H2 last night about the Great Lakes.

The Great Lakes empty their water out, each in succession to the next until Lake Ontario empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Whatever this action is called in geological terms is what Mitt does with his money. Once the water reaches the Atlantic, it's free to roam the Earth to other places. What an unpatriotic, draft-dodging low-life tax-cheater. If I had the skills I would make a spoof of an episode of Cheaters (I have this whole thing playing in my head now).

15. Beyond that, though

Does he look at everything though the lens of money?

Even his love for his country??

16. Here's the 15 second ad I see.

Excellent catch, tomm2thumbs!!


Grainy close up of Romney, with a slow zoom as he states:

Romney: "The place you put your money makes a pretty clear indication where your heart is!"


Fade to black screen. White text appears, read along with by the voiceover narrator

Narrator: "Mitt Romney stashes tens of millions of dollars overseas in secret bank accounts in Switzerland, the Bahamas, and the Cayman Islands... all to keep his tax rate below what most middle class families have to pay. Mitt Romney has thrived in America, but now won't even pull his own weight."

Fade in shot of Romney on a beach, laughing. Perhaps a photo of him strangling an orphan if we can find one."

Romney (voice over, slight echo effect): "The place you put your money makes a pretty clear indication where your heart is..."

Fade to black. Subliminal photo of Honey Boo Boo dancing on stage flashing between black-out frames.

Subliminal fade out voice over: "luaP deirub I"


The ending could use a little work, maybe...

18. great ad


I see him paying someone to strangle the orphan - he doesn't want to do the dirty work himself because he has a dinner to get to and the missus has called 8 times already because the country club doesn't like it when they are late.

Other than that - Honey Boo Boo is a nice touch

19. the ironic thing is that he was digging into the president for putting money into alternative energy


just as gas prices continue to hit all time highs....

yes, the place you put your money is where your heart is

and smart people will get it and hopefully there are enough of them to vote this loser off the game board
