Mitt Romney on Obama voters (secret video leaked)

70 posts

Flag Post

A video has been released showing what Mitt Romney truly thinks of the estimated 47% of Americans who will vote Obama. He dismisses them, is condescending towards them, is a charlatan, accuses them of being lazy and accuses them of not paying taxes. The very irony about the latter is that he has not released his tax information.

Mitt Romney yet again showcases his alienation from the everyday struggles of your average and poorer American, as well as his love for the plutocracy. Just like he did last week, where he blurted that middle class families are payed over $200,000 a year.

How can a presidential candidate be so openly condescending, dismissive, and out of touch without repercussions?

Obama on Americans, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Obama to business owners," If you have a business, you didn’t build that, someone else made that happen."

How can a presidential candidate be so openly condescending, dismissive, and out of touch without repercussions?

What Romney had actually said was correct. 47% of Americans pay no federal income taxes at all. They are bankrupting America! I’m come to the conclusion that a person has to be really, REALLY dumb to vote for Obama again in 2012. I’m not talking you’re average joe dumb, I’m talking joe biden dumb.

I’m sorry but you need to stop what you’re doing. Obama is making people dependent on welfare and it’s going to cripple America. I wonder if you’ll still like Obama when the economy crashes.

CNN thinks 47% of Americans don’t pay taxes either. This video of Romney seems hardly note-worthy to me personally.

Yeah well when all the economic indicators are going in the negative direction and Obama has a worse record than Bush, you kind of have to wonder.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

Edit: oh fuck, my whole wall of text got deleted somehow. Damn.
Edit 2: the context clearly shows he is saying they have been dependent on the government and have not fully done the whole thing themselves. That is all. It is easy to take two sentences and spread vitriolic lies as news.

Why does Romney dislike that 47% but he does not pay taxes himself? He is a hypocrite.

The economy DID crash, under George Bush in 2007. Obama has led an economic improvement and a decrease in unemployment.

Obama cares about minorites and everyone, he is not out of touch. He understands the middle income of Americans, he understands the issues. He is not condescending or dismissive.

Having some very few people dependent on welfare is better than having people on the streets dieing because of no healthcare and no households.

And how is the first quote incorrect? He is saying that some Americans are too religious, to the extent of fanaticism. Also, some Americans do indeed cling to guns and are anti-immigrant and whatnot; they release their hatred many times with those people.

It is not a dumb speech, it just has two very poorly expressed sentences which have been reverberated by the right-wing media.

Obama is referring to the fact that America has helped them. The government has helped them through the building of roads, the internet. The government has helped them through subsidies and whatnot. They have not entirely done it by themselves. Teachers, many of whom are funded by the government (Department of Education and state departments of education), have helped them. So not entirely by themselves have they built their business. Yes, he doesn’t express it too well, but the quote is taken out of context in order to be vitriolic and dishonest.

Also, please don’t tell me Obama makes the worst speeches and mistakes.

It’s also about the narcissism of many people: no, you are not the centre of the world and you have not done everything in your life by yourself. You have been helped, acknowledge and appreciate that.

“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me, because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.

Defend this speech but you have to acknowledge it was one of the dumbest speeches ever given.

Obama is right about the Internet though! Al Gore invented the internet ha ha ha!

These are not vitriolic lies sir. Half of all Americans are dependent on welfare or entitlements. 46 million Americans are on food stamps, 23 million added under Obama. 1 in 6 Americans are in poverty under Obama.

YOU JUST LIED, ROMNEY PAID $3 MILLION IN TAXES. I can’t take liars and hypocrites like you seriously. Did you honestly say that Romney pays no taxes? Do you wonder why I have this preconceived notion about Obama voters? This is the reason why.

He pays taxes, just a lower percentage than some think he should. One reason is because a lot of his income is made from investments, which are taxed at a lower rate then other income sources.

Romney hasn’t released his tax returns. For what reason? Why do conservatives always defend the rich who don’t pay their taxes or at least their fair share? But a poor person doesn’t pay taxes? Prison for you.

It’s not like the rich have any entitlements, right? Apparently not. Apparently some people inheriting a massive sum of money makes them allowed to dislike the poor who have been born into poverty.

And they are “entitled” because otherwise they would die in the streets. Without healthcare and affordable housing, a greater amount of people die under seemingly third world conditions. This happens in America, supposedly the best country in the world.

Should this number be reduced? Yes. How is Obama trying to do that? He is creating jobs and letting them for a while have a living condition whilst they cannot get a job or whatever their situation is. The Republicans propose having the poor have no healthcare and affordable housing which will lead to a greater amount of people not being able to get jobs and punishing those without jobs.

YOU JUST LIED, ROMNEY PAID $3 MILLION IN TAXES.

I dislike people who express themselves in such putrid manner. Mate, if you believe I have said something wrong, let me know and prove me wrong; don’t accuse me of lieing. If you are correct, then I am wrong. I am not lieing, I am simply misinformed.

Now, that is just referring to your classic condescending style of being, but I’d like proof for that claim. And again, why hasn’t he released his tax returns?

Do you wonder why I have this preconceived notion about Obama voters?

Hmm, oh yes. You have changed my political standpoint. I am now a Republican, someone who loves the rich and having them live a life of grandour meanwhile having the poor live (although preferably not live) in poverty and sadness. I am now a Republican, someone who hates liberty for many people (e.g., LGBT) whilst openly preaching otherwise. I now make laws that openly discriminate against victims (such as rape victims) while at the same time I say, oh but no, I am not a sexist; oh and I believe in creationism and dislike the furtherance of science.

I am now a happy, narcissistic Republican whose interest is only in myself and fuck the poor, fuck women, fuck black people, fuck gays. I am a happy Republican, thanks for changing my political ideology. White power.

Romney released two years of his tax returns. Politically dumb for the conservatives to be stubborn like that, but they have a point considering the rich pay nearly 70% of all federal income taxes while the bottom 47% pay no federal income taxes. The very poor don’t pay taxes, they don’t get jail time. If a hard working middle class business owner doesn’t pay taxes to pay for these lazy people, they get jail time. Do you think this is fair?

The rich doesn’t hate the poor. Where did you get this simplified view on the world?

You’re lying again! The Republicans don’t want the poor to have healthcare? Care to show a source, don’t bother you’re a liar.

I dislike people who lie, simple as that. To me that is putrid. You actually said Romney doesn’t pay any taxes at all. That’s not being misinformed, that’s purposely using character assassination. He did release his tax returns for the years of 2010, and 2011.

Sir you’re just so freaking disgusting it’s hard to describe you. I’m so damn glad I’m no longer a democrat and I have people like you to thank for that. You’re trash, nothing but. You calling me putrid? What a joke. You’re putrid and just made it apparent to everyone here.

A whole lot of boring I warn you.

But what is interesting is not the last 2 years but the last 10 years like Obama gave us. If it’s really boring that just give it else why isn’t he giving it?

Because some of the tax rates are lower because most of his income comes from investments. Lay people don’t understand this. Obama will quickly use this to distract from the economy. He’s not entitled to release more tax returns especially to the Obama campaign who painted him as a felon, a tax-cheat and a murderer.

It is interesting that Obama shielded his AG Eric Holder on the Fast and Furious scandal. You know the important scandal that actually got people killed? What’s Obama hiding? Maybe he authorized that failed gun running mission to drug cartels that got people killed.

It’s called satire; it’s called sarcasm. I thought it was obvious to everyone, I guess not to you. I am mocking what Republicans do and are. Did you seriously not see it was satire? Did you seriously not?

Republicans legislate mysogny, homophobia, etc., which is what I was conveying with my satire.

You showed proof of his 2010 tax return, not 2011 or 2012.

The rich doesn’t hate the poor. Where did you get this simplified view on the world?
They dislike them living off welfare—for many the only way they can live at all. They want no welfare, which will lead to their deaths.
The Republicans don’t want the poor to have healthcare?
So Republicans are now in favour of Obamacare and socialised healthcare? This is news to me.
I dislike people who lie, simple as that.
IF you were correct, IF, then I would NOT be lieing, I would simply be incorrect. I wouldn’t be lieing, I would just be wrong.
You actually said Romney doesn’t pay any taxes at all.
I was simply stating that according to his non-existent recent tax returns, he doesn’t. All I was saying is there is no proof for it. I was not saying he doesn’t pay taxes as such, I was merely stating there is no proof for it.
Sir you’re just so freaking disgusting it’s hard to describe you.
Refer to first point of that whole thing being satire. I honestly thought everyone would catch on to that. And that is basically what Republicans do, slightly exaggerated, but at least it is what they want to make law or have made law, depending on the case.

My family was never rich when I was growing up, yet my stepfather worked hard to support us. I wore my cloths until the were 4" above my ankles and way out of style before I got new ones. But we had a roof over or head and food in our bellies because my stepfather was willing to put out the effort to provide it. I get so tired of hearing all of you bleeding hearts crying over those who would rather sit on their butts and take money from those lower income people who work. Yes, they pay taxes too and you are sucking off them too.

I was the first one to go to college in my family. I chose college to get ahead and provide a little more for my family. Yes was tough at times and I wondered where our next meal would come from, but I did it and I did it myself without sucking off others efforts to support their families. You people sicken me.

And yet I am a conservative. Could it be I at least have enough pride to take care of myself? Could it be I believe in living free? God and guns, right?

Obama has not created the first job. He lies to make himself look important in hopes of getting another 4 years to further ruin our country. And of course I have to explain this to another foreigner.
