Rolling Stone Magazine makes public a recording of Romney speaking at a private fundraiser

The big write-off

Rolling Stone Magazine has made public a recording of Mitt Romney speaking to a private fund-raising gathering of fat cats yesterday, September 18, 2012. In it, Romney reveals that he think his campaign can write off 47 percent of the electorate who will vote for Barack Obama no matter what, since they are all dependent on the government.

To listen to this video is a journey into the mind of a man who is woefully out of touch with the collective American psyche, to a man who has not got a clue about who we really are.

I think Ron Paul is the best answer really, I would have voted for Obama again but since he is so deep with GoldmanSachs I am not sure I can support him, but normally I would never consider voting republican.

Well there you go again, with those tell tale communist catch phrases (the collective). He is not out of touch with the 53% that foot the bill, government doesn’t have a job; it just takes from those of us that do and gives it to those that don’t. He should really run with this and hammer it home because while you say he writes off 47% of voters, they would never vote for entitlement reform anyway because, like he said, they are dependent on that handout and that just wouldn’t make sense. The ones that have to keep handing over on the other hand might go vote for him if he wasn’t such a flip-flopping Mass. Liberal that keeps forgetting to take his medications. I happen to think, had he had made this argument the cornerstone of his campaign from the beginning, he would be further ahead in the legitimate (that doesn’t over sample liberals) polls at this point. It doesn’t really matter though as he is a slow motion train wreck and doesn’t stand a chance of winning anyway, so the whole point is moot.

Communist catch phrases?
You're straight out of the 1950s my friend.
And the polls over-sample republicrats, not the other way around. Gallup only calls land lines, and all the young people only have cell phones. And I agree with you on one point and one point only though - he does indeed not stand a chance, because he is so completely out of touch with the ordinary American - you know, all of us who constantly feed at the government trough.

Excellent post. I am glad that this man will lose. He is unfit to lead a great nation like the USA

One needs to have empathy for those who struggle yet never lose hope - the silent majority. Otherwise, we will soon descend into utter chaos - when the majority loses hope and treated as a burden. Thanks Steve for sticking to your guns! siva
