Obama campaign responds to secret videos of Mitt Romney speaking to wealthy donors of his disdain for half the nation

An article published today by David Corn of Mother Jones, displays Mitt Romney’s disdain for the non-elites. With several undercover videos embedded in this damning article, Romney has inadvertently handed to race to Barack Obama — by simply declaring to a group of wealthy donors his real thoughts on the middle class, who he apparently believes are worthless Obama supporters — a group of people who he states, “is not to worry about.”

Hint to Mitt: More Red States are recipients of welfare than Blue States.

Romney’s carefully chosen words to a millionaire packed house:

"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."

“My job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

The Obama campaign didn’t waste much time in responding:

It’s shocking that a candidate for President of the United States would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half the American people  view themselves as ‘victims,’ entitled to handouts, and are unwilling to take ‘personal responsibility’ for their lives. It’s hard to serve as president for all Americans when you’ve disdainfully written off half the nation.

Romney just discounted half of this nation. In doing so, he’s also looked down on the middle income earners, the elderly and the poor. There are no other words to describe his brand of elitism. What a dick.

Mitt also believes the economy will be thriving simply because of the news that he’s elected.

It’s just that simple. The minute Mitt steps into the White House, the economy will blossom and unicorn farts will be used as an extra energy source, while we ride rainbows to work daily.

I urge ‘you people’ to read David Corn’s article and watch the videos for yourself.
