What Romney Says When We’re Not Listening

Somebody secretly filmed Romney talking behind closed doors at a fundraiser. He thinks that half of us are freeloaders:

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

So being certain to vote for Obama is the same as not earning enough money to owe Federal income tax (while paying other taxes, like Social Security, Medicare and sales taxes), which is the same as not taking responsibility for your life. I wonder what the waitresses and bus boys were thinking while this guy was talking.
