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.

Obama harbors racists. Obama is a cancer and when he loses axel rod and pelosi will run for the hills like the SS Nazis in WW 2

It is about time someone told the truth about people who constantly receiving money from our government because they have to many children that they can't support. They get free cell phones and so much more they don't deserve. These people NEVER have to buy anything because WE THE PEOPLE give them gifts of all kinds and therefore they don't have to get a job so to me what he said is so correct I don't have the proper words.

My God, why does anyone hate the rich? Don't you WANT YOUR FREEDOMS TO PURSUE THE SAME SUCCESS? What the hell is it stupid libs don't get? You want socialism and a pie cut up in equal pieces so the BEST AND BRIGHTEST DON'T TRY AND RISE UP? STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES. John F. Kennedy was a rich Presiden, born into a RICH family and HE IS TURNING OVER IN HIS GRAVE WITH THE RACIAL WARFARE AND THE CLASS WARFARE OBAMA LOVES TO IGNITE! Wake the F up people.
Or do you like being dependent on government for your ZERO SUCCESS in life if you don't get off your asses and get to JOBS that Romney will provide once the SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS CAN UNCLOG THE BLOCK THAT IS OBMAMA!

I like this bible verus "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Pretty much explains what happens when people let money blind them and only care about what there money will do for them. Money can't buy you happiness it only gets you so far in life.  All that really needs to be said is Obama 2012. Vote to move forward not back!

This is so sad, just in from Gallup poll, mitt ruiney has support from low income people making less than 24,000$ a year. Poor people do not realize what he wants to do to them. And i bet i know why, in the Bible Belt, they believe the Repuliecans, are moral. Ha!! Couldnt be farther from the truth! At least when Democracts pull something, they cant hide it, but we know Republiecans, are liars, for the rich and nothing but the rich, SO HELP ME GOD!!! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 !! YES WE WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT ISN'T HIS SKIN COLOR EVERYONE ON THIS BOARD HATES....IT'S HIS IDEOLOLOGY AND LACE OF EXPERIENCE TO HOLD THE MOST POWERFUL JOB IN THE WORLD! And LOOK what he's done to this country. Much as the media tries to hide it, the educated among us know. There should be an Obama disaster list released by all networks, and make it mandatory. SO SICK OF THEM PROTECTING HIM, for his skin color OR HIS IDEOLOGY, whatever....HE HAS TO GO. WE LOVE CONDE RICE....LET'S GET HER IN THERE, BUT WE HAVE TO OVERTURN OBAMA!
ROMNEY/RYAN 2012......ALL THE WAY!

@Marianna- once upon a time Walter Chronckite said- AND THAT'S THE WAY IT WAS! Marianne- it really was - the way it was! Peter Jennings- had class, what happened? CNN, NBC, MSNBC- these are the spokespeople for they left hatred and it's been going on for 4 years. Obama- calling Boston PD stupid, if I had a son he would look like Trayvon etc. then there is Al Sharpton, Maxenne Waters or the Black Panthers with bounties and Eric Holder turning his head. Screaming racism is as natural to blacks as anything they do. Those people have used race as leverage a their miserable lives and your scared shitless it's going to end. Marianna- u should be scared, it's going to end.
