Mitt Romney on Obama Voters: Entitled Losers!

by at . Comments

A secretly recorded video has emerged in which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney can be heard apparently disparaging voters - specifically those who support President Barack Obama - at a private dinner with donors.

Mittens

The GOP nominee can be heard (and seen, albeit far away) positing that "47 percent" of Americans do not pay any income taxes, consider themselves victims, feel entitled to handouts and would never even think about voting for him anyway.

"I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," Romney says of Obama's "huge advantage." Take a look below:

Responses to this will likely fall into one of two categories:

  1. The truth hurts! He's just stating facts! People are such leeches!
  2. Wow, what an out of touch monster! He hates half the country!

The truth is probably somewhere in between, with the main takeaway being that Mitt's words were not chosen particularly well, especially in this media age.

Whether or not he harbors disdain for 47, 48, 49 percent of the country ... did he learn nothing from Obama's "cling" controversy four and a half years ago?

What do you think of Mitt's remarks, and who are you voting for in 2012? Share your thoughts, opinions and commentary on the campaign with us below...

UPDATE, 9/18: Addressing the controversial video, Mitt Romney stood by the comments, while conceding that he did not articulate his point very elegantly.

Romney is correct. He is being honest. Truly, Obama will get the working class vote and poor folks vote,who do not pay much taxes due to low income. He is rallying for the wealthy vote,big dill.

What is wrong with his comment? The only thing that is wrong is the 47% is a little high. Did you Obama lovers see the mindset of crowds of black people saying they wouldn't worry about their mortgage or anything else if Obama was in the Whitehouse. Maybe that is right for the black race since he gave 1.2 BILLION to BLACK FARMERS ONLY and has done similar giveaways for Black education excluding the White Race. Obama is the biggest flip flop liar that does not have the morals to be a leader. Obama is for 6 month abortions and same sex marriage and he has no shame about the many millions of tax payer dollars ( More than any President before him ) that he spends on the Obama's extravagant vacations.

I am Republican and insulted by the remarks. We seen Romney in the OC@2days ago. When asked of the remarks,he concluded he supports his comments and he said its the truth.

If ROMNEY ends up getting re elected by a small margin-blacks everywhere will protest the election results and probably start rioting.Anyone care to place a bet ? Bet you'll lose.Look for it to happen if thats the case.
