Watch: Mitt Romney’s Entire ‘Off-the-Cuff’ Spiel to Donors
by Karen Ocamb on September 18, 2012
Here’s that context Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s been asking for – the entire 49 minutes of his ‘off-the cuff” spiel – including the line, “My job is not to worry about those people,” meaning the 47% he says are “dependent on government” and will vote for President Obama’s re-election in November no matter what.The Washington Post’s Wonkblog has a piece explaining that 47% – “Who doesn’t pay taxes, in eight charts” – that you might enjoy.
Interesting comments to the Wonkblog piece, including motorfriend: “Some of us still recall when the government interfered with the Dust Bowl!” Adding, “(For those who don’t remember, the Dust Bowl was a free-market strategy to transfer the topsoil of Kansas to the Panhandle of Texas through a free air transportation system. It worked beautifully — until the government stepped in!)”
