Contempt

September 17th, 2012

Inspired by Romney Tells Millionaire Donors What He REALLY Thinks of Obama Voters (David Corn, Mother Jones 9/17/12 16:00).

 

“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.” – Mitt Romney in leaked fundraising meeting video

 

Did you vote for Obama?

Then you’re a bum.

Not only that,

You’re lazy and dumb.

 

You pay no taxes,

You don’t work for a living.

You just rely on the makers

To keep on giving.

 

That’s what Mitt Romney

Secretly says

About the 47% of the country

Who support the Pres.

 

These are the people

President Romney will serve

And make sure they

“Get what they deserve”?

 

So first he shuts down your plant

Or outsources your job,

Now Romney mocks you

As an freeloading slob?

 

Are in the half of our population

Mitt thinks is a loser,

A lazy retiree, laid off worker,

Or student loan abuser?

 

How can Romney

Be so derisive

And accuse Obama

Of being divisive?

Here’s the video.

Here’s our friend Paul Ryan back in 2010 talking about the “takers” and “makers” in American society. It sounds like on this score, Paul fully shares his running mate’s views. Ironically, if you divide the states into those who get more than they give (“takers”) and those who give more than they get (“makers”), the “taker” states are almost exclusively Republican majority.

Here’s Hardball’s panel discussion (including Mother JonesDavid Corn, who broke the story) and Chris’s “Let Me Finish” comment about the video.
