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.


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 doesn't know how it feels to have to worry if his family with a heart problem with no doagnosis will be able to get treatment and stay alive. That's why my family WILL vote for Barack Obama.


Damn Mitt you have NO RIGHT for telling the truth. Our country expects to hear lies, lies, lies. Most of the people voting for our presidnet DO receive some form of handout and DON'T WORK. It is those that work that pay for these handouts. We have a society that blames everyone else for their failures, are willing to stand in lines for anything free and most likely don't even have the knowledge or ability to know how government works. We have a government willing to take from the middle class (not the rich, need their money to pay for his campaign) to pay for these freebies so that the others receiving all the freebies will vote for him. It is all about buying votes and those of us that work are the ones paying the price. Damn those Americans that worked hard all of their lives to take care of their families. They should be ashamed, as a definition of an American now is an individual that feels that the government should GIVE them everything they need.


@ Carlin- I crown you the Full of Shit Queen of the day! You damn fool! You should try out for Soooooooul Traiiiiiin! You white? Ha! Your dumb ass is stupid!

Carlin R I'm here to inform you that I'm married to a white man that is absolutely awesome in every way and far from yesterday he's today. It's you and your attitude that needs to get over it. There's good men regardless of race it's people like you that make men mistreat women.


I'm part of that 47% that ain't voting 4 that BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON . HIDES HOW HE MAKES HIS MONEY! HE IS A BIG PHONY POMPOUS ASSHOLE! BITCHASS LIAR! I don't feel entitled 2 shit! I try! And I wasn't born with a slver spoon up my ass!

Robert I agree with you things have gotten a lot worse in the last 4 years. Unfortunately we did get change when Obama got office but not for the better. People think things are bad now re-elect him and see how badly things will get in the next 4 years. He's already got control of our medical care take a wild guess what's coming next. We suffer from his decisions yet he nor his family share any of that pain. Ask yourself how many of us buy $6,000.00 blouses like his wife does. Take a look at all the millions of dollars she has spent on vacations. As for me I can't remember the last vacation I could afford to take.


As a white woman and im voting for Mr Obama because he represents the diversity of america! He also cares about women,unlike white republican men and their patriarchal system that treats women as second class citizens and slut shames our gender.Our prez is an intelligent black man with great compassion!Tbh i think that white american men are angry especially since there is a black man in office and also maybe perhaps because the fact that many of us our turning to black men for love,satisfaction and marriage:) Get over yourselves guys america is a rainbow of fruit flavors and you are so yesterday.


NO Eliza, you are wrong about Dr. Ron Paul. His views on this is LET THE STATES DECIDE...not the Federal Government. He is Pro Life but does not and would not have imposed his personal beliefs on the rest of the country. It should be a state issue...


No patty go spin things you liberals are good at that! I am not into name calling your probably a nice woman who's been terribly misinformed. Hello GWB is not the president. Ask yourself a simple question. Are you better off today than 4 years ago? 23 million people aren't. People wanted change not counting loose change to try to fill up gas hello bush left office gas was 1.85 a gallon now it's 4.40 a gallon that's not change. It reminds me of Carter days


No patty go spin things you liberals are good at that! I am not into name calling your probably a nice woman who's been terribly misinformed. Hello GWB is not the president.
