The news story broke last night that Mitt Romney had been secretly taped at a fundraiser and for once he was actually telling everyone what he really believes. Unfortunately for Mitt, what he believes makes him a complete out of touch asshole with zero compassion for his fellow human being. You can find the tape all over the internet where he describes half the population of the United States as parasites and losers who have zero self esteem.
But the quote I love the most is 47% of Americans “ believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing“. The nerve of those bastards, they think they are entitled to eat and have a roof over their heads. Fuck them, this is America, they have no such right. What will they demand next, oxygen?
And what makes this more egregious is that all this was said in a room full of multi-millionaires, the same people who make their fortunes off the blood, sweat and tears of the middle class. Without us they would have nothing. And yet they hold the poor and middle class with such disdain.
On the tape, Romney also says that 47% of Americans, the same ones who think they are entitled to eat, pay no taxes. This of course is wholly inaccurate and has been debunked. But it’s ironic that Romney would say such a thing considering he refuses to release his own tax returns and he has been accused of paying zero taxes himself.
On the whole, the tape is damaging to the Wall Street Banker’s chances of winning the White House. I heard one pundit say on TV last night that it’s damaging not because what Mitt Romney said is shocking, but because what he was caught saying validated what everyone already thought about him. In other words, if before, you only suspected Mitt Romney was a cold hearted asshole with no compassion, now you know it for sure .
