MITT'S WHITEY TAPE  4:51 pm September 17, 2012

Video: Mitt Romney Really, Really (Really) Does Not Care For You People

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

ENTITLEMENTSIt starts out fairly anodyne — Ol’ Miffed Romney talking to his base. (Not “the” base of uncouth teatards, his base of Lehmann Bros. execs or the like.) But very soon, he becomes … what is the word? Unhinged? Yes, unhinged. Because people think they are “entitled” to not starve in the streets of America. Really, listen to the snarl. It’s … it’s fucking gross, actually. Has a candidate for American president ever spoken about his subjects the voters with such repulsion? (He goes on to say he will NEVER be able to make the 47 percent of us who are too poor to pay income taxes into anything other than shit-slime, but it’s that first sneer that really digs into your brain like “Call Me Maybe” or something. Whether or not he ever bothered to pay his own, of course, is still anyone’s guess.) Seeeeriously offputting video, after the jump!

Who else loves the American people as much as Miffed Romney?

  • Leona Helmsley.
  • Nikita Krushchev.
  • Dick Cheney.
  • Paris Hilton.
  • Gina Rinehart.
  • Eduardo Saverin.
  • Somali pirates.
  • [MotherJones]

    Fuck you Mitt Romney. I pay plenty of taxes with civic pride. You wouldn't understand.

    Wadisay September 17, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    If Harry Ried is right, Mitt is part of the 47-48 percent that pays no taxes. Ergo, he ought to be voting for Obama, too.

    PsycWench September 17, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    We pay plenty of taxes, aren't on welfare and we're voting for Obama. And there are plenty more where we come from.

    sewollef September 17, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    I'm simmering on a low boil right now. This is seriously Romney's "whitey moment".

    I can't snark about it, just can't.

    iamrrm September 17, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    It's hard to be snarky while feeling very stabby.

    BerkeleyBear September 17, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Sure you can. It is just hard to when you want to reach through the intertubes and smack the smirk off his face.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 17, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    It's weird that this is being compared to something that Michelle Obama was libeled with, but never ever said. The actual, non-lie comparison would be Barack Obama saying that certain people cling to their guns and religions because they don't see any solutions in anything else. The big difference is that Obama, even in that statement, did not exude the very specific and very well-explained contempt that Romney did.

    DemmeFatale September 17, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    I'm stunned.
    I want to cry.
    And then I'm gonna get really mad, and send Obama a donation.

    Callyson September 18, 2012 at 1:33 am

    "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for Mitt Romney no matter what…there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to bailouts, to tax breaks, to deregulation."

    mayor_quimby September 18, 2012 at 10:28 am

    As a single person without kids who claims "1" on their deductions, I am tired of supporting fucks like RMoney who don't pay their fair share. Get a job Mittens, your capital is getting tired of supporting you.

    Gratuitous World September 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    This is his, "Whitey, Kill" moment.

    No_Wire_Hangers September 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    More like his "clinging to guns and religion" moment

    Lascauxcaveman September 17, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    More like "just an average day on the campaign trail."

    Generation[redacted] September 17, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    This is, indeed, his "I'm still voting for the white guy" moment.

    Texan_Bulldog September 17, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Except Barry was accurate–there are people who cling to guns & religion out of fear/ignorance/whatever. Romney is saying half the American population are moochers & free loaders. Colossal dick weed.

    Pragmatist2 September 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    I have more problem with people who believe they are "entitled" to use Swiss bank accounts to evade US taxes.

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Seriously, what a dick. He has no concept of who pays what in taxes, and probably doesn't know that his sainted Reagan scrapped income taxes on the lowest earners to save money (!). Clearly, he doesn't know what the lazy 47% do pay in taxes.

    Now I hate him with the heat of a thousand Joseph Smith lynchings.

    Mormons: America's trailer trash before we had trailers.

    Isyaignert September 18, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Rmoney thinks that $250K a year income is middle class. Maybe in his world, but not in ours.

    CthuNHu September 18, 2012 at 1:33 am

    Willard cares deeply about the middle class as he defines it, not the middle class as we might want or wish him to define it.

    4TheTurnstiles September 17, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Which may be the most plausible explanation for why Romney refuses to show his tax returns in public…

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Thanks for this posting; it more concisely summarizes the situation than most articles on this topic.

    But the bottom line is that he pays considerable less taxes than middle class (I am thinking in the $50 to 150K range) salary and wage earners who PAY TWICE AS MUCH or more than RMoney because of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, and freedomz.

    And I am not apologizing for the cappy thing.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 18, 2012 at 1:23 am

    RATES, always remember we're talking about rates, not dollar amounts.

    rickmaci September 18, 2012 at 1:03 am

    So Twitt thinks I am a loser because I don't make enough money and don't pay enough in taxes? Calling the pot black (LMAO) is not a good strategy for the kettle. The issues of HIS tax returns and how much tax HE pays, which have been dormant, now are revived.

    TribecaMike September 18, 2012 at 2:30 am

    Hey, if it worked for the Nazi's…

    actor212 September 18, 2012 at 9:51 am

    I really want, during the debates, for Obama to ask him how he can claim to love America but keep his money off shore to lower his tax liability.

    It would be even cooler if an audience member during a town hall called him unpatriotic for doing so.

    Jus_Wonderin September 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Rebecca, you just want me to leave work early and throw myself into a tub of Vodka, don't you????? No worries, it has been that kind of day already.

    Limeylizzie September 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Yes, please and pics also.

    Jus_Wonderin September 17, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Just call me “Curious in NYC”.

    zippy_w_pinhead September 17, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    I hear it works as a skin treatment too. Is there nothing Vodka can't fix?

    starfanglednut September 17, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I have a friend who uses it to clean his computer screen, but then he's an alcoholic.

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Well, that is just a waste then. I mean, what he uses up on the screen.

    Boojum September 17, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Vodka and duct tape fix everything.

    zippy_w_pinhead September 17, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    real men use Gaffers tape, Duct tape is for amateurs

    MilwaukeeKent September 17, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Argue semantics all you want, I STILL say Rock'n'Roll didn't exist until there was gaffers tape, and didn't hit the garage until it was called duct tape.

    BlueStateLibel September 17, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Drink a couple of vodkas to CELEBRATE. This is going to kill Mittens.

    Doktor Zoom September 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    It's surprising: I actually AM capable of loathing him more than I did 20 minutes ago.

    actor212 September 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Day's not over yet.

    He made me stabby.

    ProgressiveInga September 17, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    With votes, right?

    actor212 September 17, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Oh yes, a whole icepick full of votes.

    Jus_Wonderin September 17, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    But, do you loathe him more than you did four years ago? Oh, wait…….

    An_Outhouse September 17, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    They are teasing a part 2.

    Mittens Howell, III September 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    It's been a long 20 minutes.

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    And loathe him as much or more than Cheney, Bush 43, et al. Did not think it possible.

    Texan_Bulldog September 17, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Dunno…Cheney & his devil offspring (the non-gay one) are vile, loathsome creatures. Them & Romney are like a 3-headed hydra.

    Let them eat roadkill squirrel!

    finallyhappy September 17, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    A few years ago -there was a squirrel eating warning- saying the brains could give you something like mad cow. It seems that squirrel is good eating- or so I was told at the Atlanta drinky thing.

    unclejeems September 17, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Yeah, I had a cat once who dragged flattened squirrels from the street in front of the house, up onto the porch, and then looked around like, hey, look what I killed. Reminds me of Bush's Mission Accomplished moment every time I think about it.

    BoatOfVelociraptors September 17, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    The cake is a lie! Like Mitt's tax returns!

    Just don't expect to be buried by the government.

    rickmaci September 17, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    No problema. I think somebody else goose stepped their way to a final solution of that whole burial issue.

    Oh yes, please let me vote for the guy who thinks that I am lazy and ignorant!

    ThankYouJeebus September 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    I love how it cuts on 'whether they like the guy or not.'

    Gosh, Mitt, I think a lot of people are figuring out they don't like you.

    Biel_ze_Bubba September 17, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Coming from a guy who relies so heavily on ignorant voters, that is pretty rich.

    No_Wire_Hangers September 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    I don't have a problem with Mittens believing this, if he'd only OWN IT in his campaigning and advertising. But I guess that's my beef with all Republicans.

    Thurman Munster IV September 17, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Beef? Did you say beef? I'd love some of that but Rmoney's just gonna take it away from me

    Terry September 17, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Ron Paul, crazy as his is, is one of the few Republicans who actually campaigns on most of his actual views. Well, except his views on minorities and being rady to run for the border.

    Sue4466 September 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Isn't Romney one of those people who don't pay income taxes?

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    True story. I gratefully enjoyed a windfall this year, and this year alone, and had to pay 36% on it, which is MORE THAN TWICE what this jerk pays. I normally fall in the most median of median incomes, and more than five times below Rmoney's "$250,000 middle-class income." Now who is the welfare cheat?

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    Well, it is your own fault for not taking proper precautions in case you should one day have a windfall and not have some kind of tax shelter already in place. You aren't just automatically entitled to not pay taxes, you know.

    ETA: congrats on your windfall. I wish you many many more.

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Don't expect him to complain about his own 47% of the 1%.

    OKthennext September 18, 2012 at 12:05 am

    3,000 fraction-of-one-percenters earned over $two mil in 2011 and paid zero federal taxes due to capital gains and tax-loss carry forward. Mitt thinks that shit is great.

    Isyaignert September 18, 2012 at 12:50 am

    Under the Rayn plan, the 1% would pay 1% of their income in taxes. How fukkin' quaint!

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    •Paris Hilton.

    OBJECTION!! Paris Hilton absolutely loves the American people, or at least, a very large number of them, both individually and in group sessions.

    poorgradstudent September 17, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    Well…she did agree to play a role in "Repo!: The Genetic Opera," where she portrayed a shallow and sociopathic heiress who is a failed actress and has a sadoerotic fixation on plastic surgery. So honestly to her credit I'd say she probably has thousands of times more self-awareness than Mittens.

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    If the rumors are to be believed (probably) she is also absurdly racist.

    Then again, Mitt Romney is an actual influencial figure who panders to racists for political cachet, which is just as bad in practical terms.

    Negropolis September 17, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    But, but some of her best bootycalls are black!

    Tequila Mockingbird September 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Does he really believe that the government provides food, housing and healthcare for half of the population? And that the only reason people vote for Obama is to keep all the freebies? And how does he explain that all the Obama-loving blue states are the wealthiest ones?

    Meanwhile, the single biggest accepter of government aid is Rmoney's BFF: corporations.

    SoBeach September 17, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    "Does he really believe that the government provides food, housing and healthcare for half of the population?"

    No, Romney doesn't believe that. But he'll pretend like he does because so many republican voters believe it.

    Poindexter718 September 17, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    I think he does. Because Mittens' politics and policies are entirely predicated on maximizing his own self interest and preserving the prerogatives of wealth and privilege, he is incapable of imagining that others might see things differently and vote according to their conscience rather than their wallet.

    Crank_Tango September 17, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    I think the free abortions must be declared as income, or something, for what that's worth.

    Out of boredom, I caught the last 20 minutes of Godzilla on TV the other night, with that song playing over the closing credits. What a lousy piece of graffiti over a great song. "Unh-hunh.

    And the truth is white poor Repugnicants are a large part of the 47%, and adding in all the subsidy programs, that's a lot of Whitey (R-Welfare).

    Well, if we need lessons on being entitled, Mitt's got the expertise.

    GunToting[Redacted] September 17, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Yes, they are. They are entitled to die in the streets.

    Biel_ze_Bubba September 17, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Probably not on rich peoples' streets, though.

    Negropolis September 17, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Yes, illegimately so. The American body just doesn't know how to shut it down.

    ibwilliamsi September 17, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    The sick hungry corporations are people. The hungry sick people don't have any ID and will be turned away at the polls.

    mrpuma2u September 17, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Mitt will thank them (poorz with no healthcare etc..) not to die in place where he might have to step over them. What an asshole.

    LibertyLover September 17, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Give me your corporations, your rich,
    Your huddled masses of housing derivatives yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your 47% non-tax-paying scum.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed back out to sea,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door but only for the 1%ers!"

    Not our kind of people, though.

    CthuNHu September 18, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Are there no poorhouses? No? Well, let the hungry and sick build their own damn poorhouses, then! They can borrow money from their parents if they have to.

    Poindexter718 September 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Well-groomed colostomy bag Mitt Romney was forced to call half of Americans shiftless layabouts by Bams' "class warfare."

    Forced into it, he was.

    Mitt Romney's not going to waste his time worrying about the happiness and welfare of the 49% who pay no Federal Income Taxes because they're too poor. He's far more concerned about ensuring the happiness and welfare of the .01% who pay no Federal Income Taxes because they're too rich.

    rickmaci September 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Because they are not rich enough, yet.

    SayItWithWookies September 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Mitt Romney really has no idea why he wants to be president of you people. Which is the only thing I have in common with Mitt Romney.

    ph7 September 17, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Mitt's Dad was rich, then served the people. Mitt is rich, too, thanks to Dad. Dad is dead; Mitt wants to honor Dad.

    Important difference: Mitt's Dad was a politician because he wanted to serve the people; Mitt is a politician because he wants to honor his Dad.

    Jus_Wonderin September 17, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Do all Presidents and/or candidates for the Presidency have daddy issues? Gah!

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Romney, Bush II and Gore all had politician fathers they were trying to live up to, while Clinton and Obama both never knew their fathers, with one absent and the other dead; so sources say yes.

    Lascauxcaveman September 17, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    I guess this could explain why I never got into politics, even though, like my dad, I'm peripherally interested in it. My dad (like me, after him) was too busy making music, having fun and playing outside with his family.

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Mitt is a politician because he wants to honor prove that he's better than his Dad

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    Didn't he say once that anyone who pays as much in taxes as his dad did on all of his wealth didn't really deserve to be President, because of incompetence? That was sorta weird.

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Very weird. And no, Mitt, someone who is rich yet pays as little in taxes as you do does not deserve to be President, because it means that you are an anti-patriot that hates America.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 17, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Really??

    SayItWithWookies September 17, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    I don't know that he wants to honor his dad — and if he does, this is a horrible way to go about it — more that he's ambitious for its own sake and president is the next rung up, so he figures that's where he has to get.

    Maybe it's not pathological, but it's certainly without any drive to make the country better or to right any wrongs or to accomplish anything beyond a personal goal. Which is a huge difference between himself and President Obama — he wanted to fix stuff. Mitt just wants to be president — the agenda will take care of itself once he's in office.

    starfanglednut September 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Zactly.. He thinks he should be president because he's Mitt , and it's his rightful place in the universe. Something to do with some Mormon prophecy as well, I believe.

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I'm suspecting it has more to do with a Mayan prophecy, if it has anything to do with any kind of prophecy.

    bobbert September 17, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    Considering how cluelessly entitled he acts, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if deep inside he thinks he is to be the embodiment of the White Horse Prophecy.

    A lot of Mormons are just take-care-of-our-in-group xtian-lite, but some of them are serious about the theology, and seriously crazy.

    Tom September 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    If Willard knows he can't win 47 percent of the nation, why doesn't he just use this as his stump speech? Sounds like a winner to me, said nobody.

    seppdecker September 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    This would be where Obama looks over at Romney and asks, "How am I losing not blowing this asshole out of the water?"

    Sucks to be an intelligent black communist Muslim in America.

    Estproph September 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    The real question is: how is it that someone can hear these statements by Romney DIRECTED AT THEM, and still vote for him? Because plenty will, and there's something wrong with them.

    Doktor Zoom September 17, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Well, you see, unlike those LAZY people, they only use government benefits because they NEED them.

    Estproph September 17, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    That's it exactly.

    This campaign has gone about as far as it can on racist sentiments.

    Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 17, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    It's a phenomena, no doubt about it. The basic fact is these people view the world entirely in abstracts. This and one other reason makes sense to me as to why they vote Republican. To them, Mitt Romney isn't talking to THEM, they are part of the "good guys". He's talking about lazy black people, lazy hispanics, lazy women, etc who "want things" from the government. Therefore they will argue that it doesn't matter if they have health insurance or not because if the government OFFERS it to them that's offensive. I have actually heard right wingers make this argument before. To them, letting the rich have every god damn thing they want is good because taxation is theft and rich people are victims. This sort of logic has many, many holes in it but it explains how idiot poor honkies vote GOP. The other is religious: authoritarianism. If their pastor says so, that's what they believe, end of story.

    tessiee September 17, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    "To them, Mitt Romney isn't talking to THEM, they are part of the "good guys". He's talking about lazy black people, lazy hispanics, lazy women, etc who "want things" from the government."

    "I wasn't talking about Joe. Joe's a good guy… his kids are nice… I didn't mean him. I meant the OTHER n*****s — the ones who are making all the trouble." — stupid people who have somehow mastered the ability to rationalize

    Biel_ze_Bubba September 17, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    "how is it that someone can hear these statements by Romney DIRECTED AT THEM, and still vote for him?"

    The peasants weren't supposed to hear this. I'm sending the YouTube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnB0NZzl5HA to everybody I know.

    Estproph September 18, 2012 at 8:27 am

    True, but they did hear it, and you can bet they still will vote for Romney. Some of them will even say that he was right even though they know it was directed at them!

    Biel_ze_Bubba September 19, 2012 at 6:04 am

    They'll vote for their candidate, "no matter what"? Horrors!

    Oh we get your tax policy mr. $omneys. Mine go up and yours go down. Even us below 47% can understand that!
    Really, are we soooooo stupid that we don't understand that there are a fucktillion of other taxes and fees besides Federal Income tax???

    SoBeach September 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Yes, there are really people so stupid they believe that.

    And no matter how many times they're given the facts they're still going to believe that half the country (basically the non-white half) is living it up on everyone else's dime.

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Wha??? Other taxes. Whatsa fees?

    HouseOfTheBlueLights September 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    This. This this this this this. The idea that the ONLY taxes are federal taxes. That noone ever seems to point out that when federal taxes go down, or are blockgranted, then LOCAL taxes go up, and yes this includes on renters who pay property taxes through their rent. And yes, I'm in Cook County IL where we pay fucking 11+% in sales tax because these fuckers keep starving the big black democratic cities.

    OurDailyBread September 17, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Yeah seriously: "Before the campaign even begins, I'm starting 47-49 points down on my rival, and the only way for me to actually pull this thing off is to secure the allegiance of 98% of voters who filled out a 1040."

    What a way to make people excited about your prospects of winning the presidency!

    rickmaci September 17, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    How does he not see the videocamera recording the entire fucking thing? There's like four or five parts in this report alone, with a promise of more to come. The cam's not shaky (like an O'Keefe joint) so the thing was on a tripod or something, and the focus on Romney is too clear for it to be an iPhone or something like that.

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Romney can't win without convincing some Obama voters to vote for him instead.

    This video should do the trick.

    Oh and Mitt? I'd like to see your tax returns just to satisfy myself that you have indeed paid income tax. I know you haven't paid FICA or Medicare taxes — those are for the little people — but I'd like to know if you are one of the so-called 48% who don't pay income taxes. Thanks.

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    And yes, people are fucking entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. And the government should give it to them. That's the government's most basic fucking job, you sniveling prick. To somehow suggest that the government should not provide its' most basic services, the main reason to have a government in the first place, shows that you should be allowed nowhere near any position of government power, shit-for-brains.

    HistoriCat September 17, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    I was wondering about family dynamics. From George Romney's Wikipedia entry :

    They would have four children: Margo Lynn (born 1935), Jane LaFount (born 1938), George Scott (born 1941), and Willard Mitt (born 1947)

    Interesting – he's the youngest child and the only one to fall into the baby boom demographic.

    Jus_Wonderin September 17, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Ah, I get it now. I am a center-middle. He is the last-baby.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 17, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    I don't really remember W interacting or appearing with his daughters at all. Of course, that could be just because I held him in such contempt, I never watched either of his victory parties.

    JohnnyQuick September 17, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Probably. I must display my non-dramatic insider knowledge: Somebody I know who was friends with Romney's sons said old Mittster was never around for any family events.

    There is a documented case or two of women without uteri carrying a child(really bad endometriosis ). Just make sure your obstetrician does cesareans, boys.

    Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 17, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    Recognize this sort of argument? I do, but it's a complete turn around from an old Marxist argument: the producer vs. the parasite. Now of course Marx when making this argument was referring to workers as producers because they uh…make things. Managers on the other hands were parasites because they extracted value from what others make while making nothing themselves. Thomas Frank I think brilliantly demonstrated how this argument has been co-opted in "What's the Matter with Kansas" as part and parcel how a fire-breathing socialist state became SO right wing. Essentially these assholes now say the manager is the producers because uh…something about risk or another and workers are parasites. This also goes into 'we built that!' and other shitbag 'individualist' credos….amazing isn't it?

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    So, are you Kenyan, too, you Marxist dialectical materialism apologist?

    Biel_ze_Bubba September 17, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    I look forward to Dinesh D'Souza's next book: "What's the Matter with Kenya?"

    unclejeems September 17, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Good point, that's exactly the backwards argument they make. My quibble with Frank is that Kansas is not a model of populist behavior. It went for the non-Republican candidate for President only twice between 1860 and 1900–in 1892 it went for Weaver of the People's Party and in 1896, of course, WJ Bryan, the Democrat. Since 1900, over more than 25 general elections, it gave its electoral votes to Democrats Wilson (twice), FDR (just twice) and Johnson (once). So while the point is a good one in terms of right-wing populist appeal, I just don't think Kansas is the best example.

    Yes, because there is a 100% employment rate (with good salaries) for white men living in rural areas. The 47% of people who don't earn enough to pay income tax all must be urban, female and black, right?
    You know, before this video, I thought Mitt was probably just a nice guy pandering to the loony base of the Republicans. Turns out he's just a full-on douche-canoe. Well done, Mitt, well done.

    Urban, female, and black here. (And also employed and tax-paying…. oooo) Mittens has less of a chance of getting my vote than fuckin' McCain, and I'm practically a socialist. I didn't think there was a continuum of "men I would unvote for so fucking hard" but, tonight, I realized there is.

    Pssst…Mittens, most red states have more people receiving welfare and not paying taxes than blue ones do. Also, too, your good buddy L'il Ricky Santorum says that highly educated elites are NEVER Republicans, because apparently WE'RE evil, too! So am I to gather that I'm an ivy leaguer with a post graduate degree, but I don't pay taxes or work? Cause that doesn't really make much sense….

    Or it would if I were a Republican who retroactively retired from an "investment" firm funded by blood money….

    Self-Uploader September 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Also have to say I had to check the 46% figure. Despite many of years of working with/for the poors, I had no idea the number of households too poor to pay income tax was that high. We should really do something about income inequality in this country.

    I think that number has gone up to the high forties the last few years because of a) the recession and b) we have so many credits and deductions in the tax code now. But someone around here probably knows a lot more about these matters than I do.

    zippy_w_pinhead September 17, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    the percentage is normally about 35-37%, 47% was an anomaly thanks to the great recession. It also includes retirees, students and people on disability who have to file for various reasons. When you get right down to it, most people pay income tax and they all pay FICA if they work. And we can thank that serious soshalust Ronald Reagan for the earned income tax credit

    Boojum September 17, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    And everybody pays sales tax.

    actor212 September 18, 2012 at 9:55 am

    A large percentage of that 47%– not sure precisely how big– is from people who work and have taxes withheld that are reimbursed through the Child Care Credit, effectively cancelling their withholdings.

    You know, single moms who have to support a babby…This is who Mitt hates with a passion.

    anniegetyerfun September 17, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    I found that shocking, as well. Since graduating from college, I've only ever had two years where I didn't have to pay federal income tax. One year, I was unemployed, and the other year, I was living abroad. Even my incredibly shitty salary right after college was taxed at at least 15%.

    HobbesEvilTwin September 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Thank you, Mittens, for lowering my already incredibly fucking low regard for humanity. You are proof that god doesn't exist.

    BigSkullF*ckingDog September 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Ugh, this guy makes me sick to my stomach. But what makes me even more ill are the number of the so-called 47% who are going to vote for this bastard anyway, just because he's white.

    Serolf_Divad September 18, 2012 at 5:18 am

    And because they don't realize that they're a member of the 47% that Romney is talking about. In fact, considering how much they pay in SS taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, and other fees, most members of this 47% probably have no idea they're members of this 47%.

    sewollef September 18, 2012 at 9:01 am

    But what makes me even more ill are the number of the so-called 47% who are going to vote for this bastard anyway, just because he's white.

    Comment made to me by a French friend recently: "Why isn't President Obama winning by a landslide already? It has to be because he's black, surely?".

    Why yes it is, Valérie.

    Jerri September 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Dear Mittens:

    Although for many years I was indeed too poor to owe income tax, please be assured that during that time I still paid plenty in sales taxes (which as a business man who is an alleged knower of math should know, they are a bigger hit to poors than non-poors such as yourself, assuming you don't just live off gifts and graft that is), not to mention the sin taxes on my precious smokes (you're welcome, schoolchildren).

    In conclusion, blow me.

    Signed,
    Jerri

    coolhandnuke September 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    You could gather any 47 poor people, combine their tax outlays, and in any year they paid more taxes in gas, cigarettes, alcohol, property, sales taxes, Social Security and employment than Mitt Romney paid out in any year.

    Isyaignert September 18, 2012 at 12:59 am

    Rmoney made something like $15 million dollars for doing NOTHING. That''s just the dividends on his investments for doing NOTHING!

    When did doing fukkin' NOTHING become more valuable than actually working?

    actor212 September 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    He goes on to say he will NEVER be able to make the 47 percent of us who are too poor to pay income taxes into anything other than shit-slime

    He, um, does realize that about 23% of these folks are the rural rednecks, aka his other base?

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    2/3rds of that 47% pay payroll taxes (and thus still probably pay more of their income in federal taxes than Rmoney). More than half of the remainder are elderly, and have no income.

    actor212 September 18, 2012 at 9:53 am

    Except for their Social Security checks, which were, you know, their money to begin with.

    Typodong3 September 17, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Mitt thinks I support Obama because I don't pay taxes, but I do patriotically pay my fair share.

    You know who does support Mitt? My Mom. She's retired now. She's one of the 47% Mitt thinks will only vote for Obama. I better fill her in on these new rules.

    NYNYNYjr September 17, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Says the man who's never been hungry a day in his life. Well, except that one time the mailman was 10 minutes late delivering his stock sale check, and Mitt's stomach growled and he thought he was having a heart attack. Luckily, a little chateaubriand fixed that right up.

    Typodong3 September 17, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Drunk off of the ironing board, right?

    Incitefully_Joe September 17, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Chateaubriand is not a wine, but rather a type of double-thick tenderloin steak that's renowned for its flavorful quality. One traditional preparation calls for it to be cooked whilst wrapped in a lesser cut of steak, which is discarded when done.

    You would totally know this if you weren't a worthless peon/parasite who is beneath Mitt Romney's notice and probably going to vote for Obama anyway.

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Can you get Chateaubriand with food stamps.

    Doktor Zoom September 17, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Based on the "I was behind a woman with food stamps" stories of the right, the ONLY people buying prime cuts of meat are those using Food Stamps .

    Also, they can be used for alcohol. Because that features in the stories as well.

He loathes the GOP, he would sooner pay a lot more in taxes if it meant single-payer healthcare etc, he's like a European style Social Democrat.

    Tequila Mockingbird September 17, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Entitlement IS an interesting concept. It implies that one receives privileges to the disadvantage of everyone else, and that others are unable to fight back.

    You know, like a vulture capitalist becoming a near-billionaire by putting people out of work. Or winning the Republican primaries by vastly outspending his opponents and going overwhelmingly negative against them. Or economic proposals that would help him at the cost of most everyone else. Or committing a hate crime against a gay classmate, or avoiding the Vietnam war while living in a mansion in Paris. Or forcing the family dog into a container on the roof of his car, making the dog so sick that he shat himself. Or mocking NASCAR fans for wearing cheap rain ponchos.

    “Entitlement” means one who isn’t used to having to abide by accepted standards of behavior.

    Truly, it is WE who are the entitled ones.

    actor212 September 17, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    On the other hand, it does sort of make him an expert on being entitled…

    actor212 September 17, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    See – he isn't being racist. Classist maybe, but not racist.

    anniegetyerfun September 17, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Well, he used the “personal responsibility” dog whistle, which is obviously meant to elicit images of welfare queens in the inner city. Of course, where I grew up, most people who had no sense of personal responsibility were white, knocked up by age 15, on welfare, and PROUD supporters of the GOP.

    bearperney September 17, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    It is so unfair. How can those who don't pay income tax understand how hard a person like Mitt Romney has to work to avoid paying any form of tax. Those who make less than then the $200,000-$250,000 of the middle income simply cannot appreciate how hard it is to wake up each morning knowing you have billions of dollars to shelter from Uncle Sam.

    anniegetyerfun September 17, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    "The reason that I'm not worrying about people to poor to pay income tax," added Mitt, "is that we're doing our job to make sure that at least 10% of them are purged from the voter rolls before this November."

    slowhansolo September 17, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    A few weeks ago, a French bajillionaire announced that to dodge François Hollande's proposal to raise the top marginal tax rate on those making more than 1 million euros/year to 75% (makes me hot just thinking about it), he was going to pursue Belgian citizenship.

    He was pilloried by members of the Socialist Party in the press as "unpatriotic," "a loser," and "a parasite." Liberation, the French left-wing daily, headlined its story on him with the headline, Casse-toi, riche con!, or "Go fuck yourself, you rich asshole" (playing off an earlier Sarkozy quote).

    Why oh why oh why can't we have that here in the ole U.S. of A?

New low, and how can he expect to be accepted as a leader with a shocking attitude like that? Yeah, 47-49% of the electorate is bitterly disappointed at the end of every election, but we're supposed to at least pretend that our elected officials govern with the interests of those who didn't vote for them in mind. This is leadership??

    All snark aside- fuck you Mitt. That 47% you speak of was a one time anomaly caused by your party's greedy, rapacious policies that crashed the world economy and threw everyone out of work in 2009. The normal number actually sits at about 35%, not 47% when the economy isn't on the ropes and a good many of those 35% are retirees who have to file, students who have to file and and people on disability who have to file. Most of the rest do in fact work and pay FICA which is actually a much larger portion of federal revenue than the federal income tax (more of that stick it to the lower and middle class tax policy of the last few decades. So basically what Mittwit is doing is insulting grandma, badmouthing Billy the college student and slamming Sam the Iraqi war vet who lost his legs fighting for Mitt's Oil buddies. Like I said, Fuck You Romney and your little buddy R-Lyan the sociopath too

    LibertyLover September 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    "Prez O" — his correct name and title is "President Obama"

    "hard working" — should be hyphenated, "hard-working"
    "tax paying" — should be hyphenated, "tax-paying"
    "Americans" — needs a period afer "Americans"
    "in" — the i should be capitalized, as it is, or should be, the beginning of a sentence
    "fact" — should have a comma after "fact"
    "democrats" — proper noun should be capitalized, "Americans"
    "launch" — past tense, should be "launched"
    "taxpayers" — should have a period after "taxpayers"

    And after Mitt loses the election, the post-mortem from the right will include the analysis that his campaign just held too much back and wasn't giving the American people the tough no-nonsense talk that they were really yearning for. Which will, of course, be the fault of the spoiled, entitled masses and their puppetmasters the elite media who twist every little gaffe into a huge outrage.

    Yessir. It will be all Romney's fault (hey dipshits, it was YOUR primaries that selected him!). They will double-down on the same hate speech that is responsible for them to lose, and the party will collapse after they lose again in 2016 and again in 2020. Poof, goodbye.

    iburl September 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Consceding 47-49% of the vote and calling them all, basically, assholes, is not a winning strategy, maybe he thinks he can win by just having the votes re-tallied on a Republican computer like Ohio did in 2004.

    Lavenderp September 17, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Sadly, suppressing & rigging votes is the GOP's best chance of winning, & I'm sure plans are afoot in swing states to accomplish what Mitt's charisma & integrity never will.

    LibertyLover September 17, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    You see? When Romney says what he really thinks, then that's when he gets in trouble… he has to lie ( and the Republican party has to cheat and steal votes away from people) and be vague or else he won't be able to trick that middle 10% into voting for him.

    MonkeyHamlet September 17, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    In all fairness to Mittens, the fine print on my food stamps application DOES say that in agreeing to become a U.S. government freeloader: 1) I will not seek employment; 2) I can only earn money through scratch-offs; 3) I must drink more go go juice and; 4) I'm required to change my last name to Boo Boo Child.

    So 47% to 49% of us think we are entitled, whereas Mitt and his pals KNOW they are entitled. I see.

    So I went to 12 years of public school, 4 years at a land-grant college and another five at a land-grant college in graduate school; where I had two years on a federal grant, one year on a VA internship, and two years as a teaching assistant. Then I worked 13 years for a state government before going into private practice. Gosh, I feel bad now. I need to learn to take personal responsibility. Good advice, Mitt, and fuck you very much. I wonder how many votes I could jam into his ear canal.

    thebeatgoeson September 17, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    When I was little my dad earned $1 a week too much to qualify for medicaid so we had no health insurance until I was 10. I went to 13 years of public school, got scholarship, workstudy and loans to go to an almost Ivy League College, got loans to go to medical school (one of the most expensive in the country at the time), some of which had an over 15% interest rate, then did a 3 year residency in pediatrics. Ended up working at an inner city health center (starting salary in 1985 for an MD was $35,000) and struggled to pay back $50,000 in loans over 10 years. I've been there for 27 years taking care of poor immigrant (some legal, some not) and minority kids, many of whose parents work alternate shifts (to avoid babysitter/day care costs) at shitty minimum wage jobs so they can pay for food and clothing and gasoline and housing, which eats up a hell of a lot more of their paycheck than it would Rmoney's. Poor greedy bastards – wanting things like health insurance to make sure their kids can get seen if they are sick or get preventive care to keep them well, and WIC supplements to make sure their babies and toddlers don't suffer from malnutrition. And how dare they ask for access to affordable birth control so they can keep from having too many babies.
    I second the sentiment – fuck you very much, Willard. And just think how many votes we can jam into his ear canal if we work together…

I live in a marginal part of the hood in the Midwest, but I came up in Anacostia when I was real small, back when ketchup was a vegetable and all the kids I knew played in the parking lot and ate government cheese. I've been working as a public servant for about half a decade now… I was a hipster zine/coffeehouse/bookstore/temp/maid type for two decades before that.

    There's another part where Mitt say he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth and didn't inherit anything.
    Your dad was CEO of American Motors, he was governor of Michigan, he was a millionaire, in the 1960s, he was Secretary of Housing, he ran for President, you went to prep school, then France, then Harvard.

    Silver spoon.

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    But he did have silver boot straps.

    anniegetyerfun September 17, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    Actually, he says that he WAS born with a silver spoon in his mouth – and that silver spoon is the ULTIMATE silver spoon: being born in the good ol' USA.

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Apparently a silver spoon up his asshole, too. For scooping out the treasured lumps. By his negress nanny, no doubt—the lazy bitch.

    Chichikovovich September 17, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    That is one of those Romney statements that is carefully chosen to deceive while being literally true. Of course Mitt didn't inherit anything. His father died in 1995, when Mitt was almost 50, and already a multimillionaire.

    So the question is what Mitt got from his father when he was young, not when inheritance became an issue. And as we know from Ann's 1994 interview with the Boston Globe, he at least got lots and lots of American Motors stock. Enough to live on while at BYU with lots left over.

    You've got to watch that weasel every second!

    [Edit: Mitt uses this "I didn't inherit anything" line constantly. And it really pisses me off. So I reserve the right to post this particular aperçu a couple more times on other threads.]

    La_Cieca September 17, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    A little internet research shows that what Romney did inherit was something about $2 million, which he donated to Brigham Young University to name a department after his father. His net worth by then was something between $50 million and $100 million, so a deductible donation of $2 million, perhaps even counted against his tithe to the LDS church, was not going to hurt him at all.

    He also seems to regard the fact that his father was the Governor of Michigan, president of General Motors and one of the most respected public figures in the nation as just something sort of incidental to his life, as if that kind of family connection has nothing to do with opportunities for education and networking.

    And finally, he really has no sense whatsoever of what financial ruin might be like: that is, from his youth well into middle age he always felt free to take big risks knowing that if he failed the worst he would suffer would be the embarrassment of going to his dad to bail him out. Very few men with a wife and five children enjoy that sense of safety in their financial dealings, which of course makes it all the more infuriatingly ironic that he is so ready to pull the meager safety net out from under half the population.

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    But, see, he didn't inherit anything – technically, if you use the most literal meaning of the word "inherit" – so he made all his money all on his own merit! And yes, he got into Harvard and named CEO of Bain all because he was just so awesome and not because of who his daddy was.

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    You're exactly right. God's honest truth. In 1993-94, I had a little extra cash, about $5K, and I seriously considered investing in Apple. But having been brought up by Depression era parents, I said, nah, too risky.

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 5:53 am

    Don't most of the super-rich make their GRANDchildren, not their children, their direct heirs? It has something to do with avoiding TAXES. I wouldn't know for sure, though, since I'll never have to worry about such a thing.

    Mrs. Deanbooth just shouted from the other room that on the TV news Chuck Todd is defending Romney. How, I can't even imagine. That the 47% number is "true"?

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 5:55 am

    I look to Ezra Klein for pie charts and bar graphs tomorrow. Chucky needs to go over to CNN and play with John King's fancy map.

    schvitzatura September 18, 2012 at 6:01 am

    Chuck equivocating is more blahbitty blah to keep the horserace alive.

    And I have never seen a smaller knot on a tie than around Todd's lardy neck. Half Windsor on a wide collar cut-away, minimum, or GTFO!

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Yes!Think proportionally, Chucky.

    Limeylizzie September 17, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Jonathan Capehart has a column about it coming later tonight.

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 5:56 am

    Missed you LL. Welcome back to the land of snark.

    cousinitt September 17, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    On one of the video clips, he boasts of his international team of Rovian consultants who've done races in Armenia and Africa–oh, if there is a god, let it be Somalia or Zimbabwe. Willard even outsources his own campaign. Now, that's dedication to your, your, um, what would you call it?

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    The fourth stanza of the national anthem of Armenia:

    Death is the same everywhere,
    A man dies but once,
    Blessed is the one that dies
    For the freedom of his nation.

    Go for it, Karl. We're behind you all the way.

    rickmaci September 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Kate Middleton and Mitt Romney need to learn to be more careful about exposing parts of themselves that they would prefer not become public or at least about not doing things even in private that can become very embarrassing if there is a camera present.

    chascates September 17, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    He's like Ronald Reagan but without the charm, wit, speaking ability, etc.

    natl_indecency_cmdr September 17, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    [etc...] intellect…

    bobbert September 17, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Let's not get overexcited and use Reagan and intellect in the same sentence.

    Geminisunmars September 18, 2012 at 12:12 am

    He like Richard Nixon, but without the charm, wit, integrity…

    TribecaMike September 18, 2012 at 2:13 am

    True that, but he is his own John Mitchell.

    Typodong3 September 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    So this is what Mitt meant when he said these things should be spoken of in quiet rooms… wow he was right.

    TootsStansbury September 17, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    Mr. Stansbury and I did everything a young pair of teenaged sweethearts could do, wrong. But we soldiered on, struggled and built a nice life for ourselves. We're nowhere near "rich" but were able to get our daughter through college and have some of the little nice things that money can buy (although our priorities always seem messed up by normal standards, you know a fool and his money…). I have never felt anything but gratitude for our good fortune and try to share as much as I can, I certainly have never begrudged paying my taxes, it is my duty as a citizen (remember that word Republicans?). If I believed in God, "There but for the grace of God go I", would cover it.

    Oh and go go go Mother Jones.

    ETA I would like younger stupid eejits like me and Mr. Stansbury to have the same fucking opportunity we did.

    Fukui-sanYesOta September 17, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Everyone fucks up. Lots of times. The measure of a person is whether they fuck up and start to blame black people or liberals or etc and so on, or whether they stand up and admit they fucked up.

    Although people with huge familial family-based hyperfortunes will never have to make that decision because they're backstopped by said fortunes. GWB. Willard. These people tend to be complete cunts.

    BarackMyWorld September 17, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    At least we don't cling to guns and religion like *some* people.

    BlueStateLibel September 17, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Soon we'll be clinging to pitchforks and torches though.

    Expect tar and feather futures to soar.

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    And lampposts. Have we enough?

    Negropolis September 17, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    And copious amounts of votes. Let me tell you, they can give you a mean under-the-fingernail paper cut.

    WhatTheHeck September 17, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Looks like all those rich folk were eating off Ironing boards as they drew up plans to create a new virus to kill of the untouchables.

    Pennywhistler September 17, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    And this comes from a man who pays half the taxes he should BECAUSE HE IS GETTING A GOVERNMENT ENTITLEMENT / SUBSIDY via the tax breaks engineered into the tax code.

    And so my job is not to worry about him.

    JohnnyBrooklyn September 17, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    I really want to say somethign clever, but all that's going through my head is fuckyouyoufuckingarrogantselfentitledfuckpaysometaxesandgetthefuckouttamylife.

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 5:58 am

    That works for me.

    azeyote September 17, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    i have to admitt that when he dribbles his drivel – i realize that i'm not so bad after all, i just hope he doesn't babtise me when i'm dead, and i have to wake up in his solar system. now that would make me a believer in hell.

    BlueStateLibel September 17, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    As someone else said, kudos to the brave, intrepid soul who got this video. This is going to do major, major damage to him.

    LibertyLover September 17, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Yeah. This guy is the guy that's gonna solve the problems in the Middle East. Uh-huh… Next thing you know, he and Lizard Cheney will be starting a war with Czechoslovakia.

    Steverino247 September 17, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    No, I think their threat to level Prague will work as well as it did the first time.

    Living in Joy September 17, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Even if Mitt had to buy the country to make it possible since Czechosolvakia doesn't even exist.

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Good luck. On the southern border of Bohemia there are signs saying "Gateway to Poland!" With arrows.

    carolinaswamp September 17, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    I don't think much of Mittens' abilities, but I really don't believe that he can be so pig ignorant that he isn't aware that the poor pay proportions of their income similar to more affluent people (other than those like him wealthy enough to avoid taxes) when sales and payroll taxes are considered. So, I have to conclude that he is so obsessed by the desire for power that he will say anything that he thinks will help to get it. And speaking of entitlement — he thinks he is entitled to the presidency, despite the ever-increasing evidence that he simply isn't up to the job of national leadership and decision-making. So, he lays into some poor kid who thinks they might be entitled to not go to bed hungry. Nice.

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 6:00 am

    Mrs. Rafalca also has an overly developed sense of entitlement.

    VinnyThePooh September 17, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    He's certainly running his campaign like one of his businesses and it will end just the same.

    Gleem McShineys September 17, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Mitt was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
    Apparently he was born with a golden stick up his ass.

    Living in Joy September 17, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Is that the type of "big stick" that Half-Govenor Dumbass of the Northwoods refers to?

    "I can– I can never predict what the markets will do. Sometimes it does the exact opposite of what I would have expected. But my own view is that if we get a "Taxageddon," as they call it, January 1st, with this president, and with a Congress that can't work together, it's— it really is frightening."

    Why should this multimillionaire be worried about a 'taxaggedon'? Will he be reduced to begging in the streets if he is no longer able to wriggle out of paying his privileged, lower rate? Will any of the multimillionaire's he's addressing? What is so fucking scary about paying your fair share?

    And if he can never predict what the markets will do, why is he trying to tell people that the markets will respond more favorably to a Romney presidency than to 4 more years of Obama? Unless he has some sinister plan to undermine the markets & blame Obama…

    Tequila Mockingbird September 17, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Look, I don't know about the rest of you suckers, but I live on the beach in a house paid by welfare. I haven't worked in years and I use food stamps to buy boxed wine. Life is great! Obama 2012!

    Lavenderp September 17, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Welfare golf carts rule!!1!

    Living in Joy September 17, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    I don't live on a beach in a house, but I am able to enjoy a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon in my tent placed on the beach just below Mitt Romney's LaJolla getaway. I take a little vacation while he's in town because he's such a fussy asshole, but otherwise, party at my tent! BYOB for God's sake. My "entitlement" only stretches so far.

    cybermoe September 17, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    … and breitbart is dead …

    Veritas78 September 17, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Given how this is ricocheting around the toobs, I'd say zee goose, she ees kooked.

    sailingthestyx September 17, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    what's cool is that a bunch of us who pay our 35% are going to vote for Obama too…partly because the dicks like romney who only pay their 15%…

    Serfville September 17, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Oh, Lordee, "the brazen, unabashed "those people" (47percenters) moment", that will live on in infamy, like the Willie Horton campaign ad, like Annie dancing horsey Leona Helmsley Mrs. Mittens "you(those) people moment. AND THESE 2 ARE MARRIED! Ha Ha Ha what a coincidence! He has been saying this in your face "I will not apologize for being successful" mantra all along. This underground super secret vid is just grittier and more ugly, but really, meh, more of the same from Mittens & the Mrs."Pour me anotha hot toddy, Jeeves, you are such a dear!"

    randcoolcatdaddy September 17, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Why do I get the funny feeling that the campaign professionals working on Team Romney are letting the leaks fly, knowing they're on a sinking ship, and hoping to shift the blame to Romney as they polish their resumes for the next campaign job?

    Living in Joy September 17, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    It kind of reminds you of the last few weeks of McCain's campaign, doesn't it? Except that this is occurring almost two months from the election. Should get even more interesting as everyone starts to run for cover.

    Geminisunmars September 17, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I'm making popcorn right now!

    Jerri September 17, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Ryan/Christie 2016!

    *Shudder.*

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    But think, that would make either President H. Clinton or Biden inevitable; and either would be awesome.

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    And then he added, "Indentured servitude was the best thing that ever happened to Irish-Americans. They knew their place back then, and that place was the pigsty."

    Negropolis September 17, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    "And, The Blacks? Well, they never had it so good as when they were in the fields. I mean, they got free meals and room & board for Pete's sake!"

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    We're stuck with our insane history, no matter how the Texas Bored of Education tries to rewrite it.

    schvitzatura September 18, 2012 at 6:44 am

    Lilburn Boggs had a point…

    deangarr September 17, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    It is going to be more than that 47% of Americans who vote against you, Mr. Romney.
    We don't want to see you anywhere NEAR the White House.
    You are not only cynical and vacant, you are frightening.

    comrad_darkness September 17, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    I have a real problem with people who are entitled to buy off our elected reps to set the rules their way so they can run up corporate debt, put it in their own pocket and close factories, all while claiming they are doing good things for the country.

    DemonicRage September 17, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    Why did that Democrat Vice Presidential Candidate who had had electro-shock therapy have to withdraw from the National ticket and not this (Happy New Year!) putz?

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    The MittBot 8400 won't rest until all lazy ass American men have six or more wives.

    amarikah September 17, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Interesting day to revisit this video: "I've been poor. I've worked from the time I was 12. My parents were driven out of Old Mexico when I was only 5. My people were revolutionary refugees. They had to be fed by the United States government and housed by the United States government. I know what poverty is I've been up through it." – George Romney
    http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nightly-news/45934570#

    BlueStateLibel September 17, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    If only the United States government had sent the whole family back…

    I don't really know much about the late George Romney, but what little I know indicates that he would be appalled by his son.

    thebeatgoeson September 17, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    I think George is rolling around Kolob…

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Most interesting, though in response Mitt would insist that his father was brainwashed.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 18, 2012 at 12:51 am

    I saw what you did there!

    Chet Kincaid_ September 18, 2012 at 12:56 am

    I'm seeing a re-make of "The Godfather Part II": The tale of George Romney, a self-made auto company president and governor, a person who paid his taxes and revealed his income, who gave a shit about black people, who realized the military was bullshitting about the Viet Nam War, and who headed an entitlement bureaucracy in the federal government, interspersed with the story of how his privileged son's Presidential campaign devolves into complete chaos.

    fuflans September 17, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    well i can see – in spite of being laid out with a flu all afternoon – things are still going well.

    Lavenderp September 17, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    If I were clever, I could think up a tongue twister about fuflans not being a flu fan, but I'll spare you the extra suffering & hope you are well on the road to recovery. All this Romney fail should at least be good for morale…

    Chet Kincaid_ September 18, 2012 at 12:05 am

    The sound of Mitt's voice is so calming and reassuring, like a mantra. The more he talks, the more I approach nirvana!

    Dashboard Buddha September 17, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    There has to be a good way to chop that.

    Lavenderp September 17, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Yes. Into very small pieces…

    zumpie September 17, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Ooooh, oooh—Hardball had both the Obama Campaign's response ("Rmoney is an evil snotty turd who hate America and her people") and Thurston's.

    Howell didn't even try to deny it, he just blathered about concern for all those poors and stuff. Or rather, "Mittens does so too like teh poors and this is Obama's fault, anyway!"

    Chichikovovich September 17, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    The poor, Mitt? You mean the people you're talking about here:

    …[M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

    I must say that's not the way I expect someone who cares about the poor to talk. It is, rather, the voice of someone who holds the poor in complete contempt and is indifferent to their fate.

    docterry6973 September 17, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Why yes, Mitt. In the richest country on earth I DO think that people are entitled to food, housing, and healthcare. I grew up poor and worked from 16 on, full or part time every year but two. I have more money than I ever knew existed, even if I do have only one house, no car elevator and no dancing horse. I pay income taxes, every year, and I suspect that is more than you can say. So fuck you very much Mitt. I am one of the 53% you figure are yours by right, but you ain't getting my vote.

    Fukui-sanYesOta September 17, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Haha more fool you. Shoulda been born to money.

    EASY!!!!!

    docterry6973 September 18, 2012 at 12:53 am

    My wife was. I married well, which is more than she can say.

    DCBloom September 18, 2012 at 9:20 am

    I dunno, sounds like Mrs. doc did petty well for herself

    LibertyLover September 17, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Considering we know more about a Zombie Apocalypse than we do about the taxes that Mitt Romney has paid, I would like to know if Mittens is part of the 47% that doesn't pay any Federal income tax… oh wait, he is, because since he doesn't have a JOB then he only pays capital gains taxes.

    His money works harder than Romney does.

    Iam_Who_Iam September 18, 2012 at 5:10 am

    I have been greatly disappointed that no one has made an issue of the fact that Romney hasn't held a job for most of the past decade. Where does he get off spouting about hard work and the work ethic? What the hell has he been doing? Isn't he supposed to be job creating or something with his Bush tax cuts?

    LibertyLover September 18, 2012 at 8:21 am

    I am sure he has been retroactively employed.

    Chichikovovich September 18, 2012 at 8:24 am

    He's created lots of jobs in the "Explaining away and spinning the latest insulting, moronic, incompetent Romney statement" industry.

    Top 10 states that have most of these moochers:

    Mississippi
    Georgia
    Arkansas
    New Mexico
    Alabama
    South Carolina
    Louisiana
    Texas
    Florida
    Idaho

    from http://taxfoundation.org/article/states-vary-wide

    That is 9 out of 10 states that are RED. Bastion of conservative ideology – responsibility, family values, fiscal conservatism. Mainly Confederate states, if you check the geography.

    4TheTurnstiles September 17, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    And the one that ain't red is New Mexico, which gets a pass from me because GREEN CHILE

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    The D.C. public tv channel WETA-UK has been showing the classic 1976 BBC series I, Claudius. It's a lot like watching a capsule history of the GOP from Reagan to Bush (Augustus to Caligula), only without a comparatively sane Claudius figure.

    Serfville September 17, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    That is my favorite PBS series of all time. To this day John Hurt is my fav actor after that. The fall of the Roman Empire yes indeedee. I will check & see if it is playing here. I should just buy the damn thing with my food stamps and entitlements after all these years! Gubbermint, would you please buy me "I Claudius"? Please?

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    It's my fave also, and has aged like a fine Andalusian brandy. I hope it starts a trend, after which I'd love to see PBS affiliates air the old Doctor Who's (might as well wish for the return of Bob Marley, but one can dream).

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    It's awesome; and the twelve-year-old, poor cable-less me loved it because, like some other shows on PBS and nothing on the networks or UHF, it had fleeting breasts.

    And it had Patrick Stuart, back when he still had hair. Amazing.

    TribecaMike September 17, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Mnemosyne is a funny goddess. I recalled seeing boobies too, but the mammories must have been playing tricks because I haven't sighted nary a single udder in the repeats. Or maybe they've been edited out for today's more sophisticated viewers?

    I used to look forward to Monty Python just to catch the occasional glimpse of Carol Cleveland's curvy thighs. Make it so!

    SorosBot September 17, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    I rewatched it recently on YouTube – and the whole series is up there, or at least was about a year ago, after I finally read the books – and there are definitely boobies in the first episode; there may not have been any after that one however.

    tessiee September 18, 2012 at 1:42 am

    So, you're telling us that you had memories of mammaries?

    viennawoods13 September 17, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    He was such a rat-bastard on that show!! He killed Postumus!

    tessiee September 18, 2012 at 1:43 am

    I haven't seen it, but it seems to me that a character named Posthumous is bound to have a pretty short lifeline anyway.

    Incitefully_Joe September 18, 2012 at 6:20 am

    Speaking of PBS, fleeting boobies, and adolescence, I am reminded of my favorite documentary of all time, The Human Animal. It was also just a really well done human behavior documentary, probably a little responsible for my undergrad interest in psychology.

    viennawoods13 September 17, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    And yet on the other thread people say nothing good came out of the 70's!

    Serfville September 17, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Did you all see Rome on HBO? The young Livia, the future poisoning lady of I Claudius was married to Octavian the sadist in Rome. She liked the sadist stuff more than he did! To connect her young character to the future murderess Livia was chilling

    Charlie_Foxtrot September 18, 2012 at 12:22 am

    "…only without a comparatively sane Claudius figure."

    Move Claudius before Caligula and it works: Claudius=Clinton.

    mbobier September 17, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Breathtakingly awful, even by the standards of Lord Romney, Grand Duke of Snottingham. It's this kind of attitude that sparked the French Revolution.

    NellCote71 September 17, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Speaking of, even Lady Pegs Nooninghamshire has stopped being shocked by seeing brown people and has turned her defiantly non-laser like focus on this clusterflock.

    JackObin September 17, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    Oh fuck that mormon asshole. I support Obama because he drinks.

    Serfville September 17, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    This is the end of the election & the Mittens campaign, as it was the end of Poopie Bush Sr. campaign & the election when Poopie Sr. couldn't answer the girls question at the debate, about knowing and understanding poor & unemployed people who can't get a job. Poopie Bush Sr. looked at the questioner like she was an alien from another planet & could not even comprehend her question (a lot like bumbling empty chair crackpot Clint Eastwood), then Clinton stepped forward & did his " I feel your pain & I get you" spiel. I said in that moment, "that's the end of the election, Clinton will win." And I am saying it now: Back to the private sector with you in November Mittens Bain boy.

    I think people are making way too big a deal out of the fact that he said this in a room full of campaign donors with the belief that anybody too poor to have federal income tax liability was safely out of earshot.

    You guys, he totally would have said these things in front of the poors, it's just that this is the first time he was in a sufficiently quiet room to discuss any of it.

    johnnyzhivago September 17, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    A Children's Treasury of Free Republic Comments on the Mother Jones videos

    When did Mother Jones start writing campaign Ads for Romney?

    Can’t disagree with anything Romney said there, except I think its more like 50 percent instead of 47 percent. Instead of saying this to private donors he needs to say this to EVERYONE because its true and this is what Obama wants, the more people reliant on Govt the more votes he will get

    He could have said that they bitterly cling to their EBT cards and their Section 8 housing vouchers.

    it is completely accurate except it leaves out the part about hating America, which is also integral to supporting that idiot Zero.

    Spot on. Romney told the truth – dog vs the fleas

    Romney left out one important fact. ALL obama SUPPORTERS ARE evil!

    I hate to admit it, but the more I see of Romney, the more I like him.

    White liberals are a bigger threat to this nation than any other group.

    I think most obama supporters are communist scum of the earth.

    This could give Romney victory. I wonder if his team leaked this.

    The dems are too ignorant to know this is exactly what Romney wants people to hear.

    Good, hook in mouth. Fish about to be caught. Brilliant way to get an issue front and center. Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant.

    Romney better not appologize for what he said either.

    ————-
    And then there's someone who just HAS to be a librul troll:

I do find it gratifying that freepers think we're evil, especially given their places as racist, bigoted, fascistic, inbred, fat, scooter-riding, pasty, fat assholes. I actually know ways to drive freepers nuts, demonstrate how similar they are to Communist regimes. Mao Zedong for instance thought that there was a conflict between man and nature and that man had to subdue nature by building factories and polluting (examples include the infamous Dalian Bay disaster where a large body of water was BLACK) the environment. Environmentalists are also cracked down with imprisonment, beatings, etc. Of course the USSR forcibly absorbed trade unions and imprisoned trade unionists who didn't go along with them. Then of course neither country had workers rights, both outlawed pornography, etc. It's fun to demonstrate how similar these groups are…wingnuts and Commies.

    You know it gets so old listening to these fuck faces use the "producer versus parasite" bullshit. Not only is it false to say managers and boardrooms are the 'actual' producers and workers are the parasites (because they demand wages and benefits for selling their labor) but it's stealing from Karl Marx. So let me get this straight, this class of absolute anti-communists have pretty much built their entire 'individualism' based upon the deluson that the guy who sits in the CEO office is the real producer. I really wish they'd learn how to construct their own ideas, not just make everything the diametric opposite of lefties…

    The idea that managers are simply parasites that can offer workers nothing of value is just as much a cartoon as the crap that the most useless of them believe about workers. I hope one day we will live in a social democracy.

    Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 19, 2012 at 1:32 am

    Totally agree…it's that kind of myopia that makes Marxism silly and unrealistic. The basic point is beyond just being reactionary, conservatism like Marxism is an industrial philosophy so much of its tenets are little more than "you're smelly" insults to Marxism. It gets even funnier when you consider Ayn Rand pretty much did little more than hold Marxism up to a mirror and make childish pronouncements to seem like she was doing something different. This is also the problem with conservatism and why its become so wingnutty over the years: since Marxism is more or less dead there isn't the check of left-right juxtaposition so they have to blow very weak changes up to the Nth degree. Because there is no longer a prominent Marxist ideology they also have to become somehow MORE reactionary and well…just be bigger assholes to compensate for the fact that on balance conservatism is completely empty on ideas; it's more or less a zombie or a vampire philosophy that needs a good staking (and not the kind of staking Marcus Bachmann is used to, either….). That's my highly simplified analysis.

    Wait a minute, so this guy is trying to woo the, and I quote, "…five to ten percent that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not."

    This unlikable meatbot is trying to appeal to independents' emotions? There's a reason why Spock didn't do the fandance, dingus. They put it to Uhura because, not only because she still had great legs for a senior citizen, but because she was a fucking human who understood emotion. Unlike you, Mittbot.

    I have two relatives currently visiting from out of town. Both are registered independents, both make more than $200,000 combined with their husbands' incomes. Both had mentioned earlier in the week that they disliked Romney (they both also made a point to mention that they can't stand his wife), so they wouldn't vote for him even though they often vote Republican. I intended to make a quick headline check on the internet this evening and found this incredible story. When I ran out into the family room with the news, they both joined my long-time Democratic mother screaming with laughter. So, yes, even the people he intends to appeal to hate him.

    The headline of their six year-old political savant Alex Pappa's piece is "Romney: Diehard Obama fans think they are ‘entitled to health care, to food, to housing,’" which transforms 47% of American voters to "diehard Obama fans." It's the miracle of the loaves and fishes all over again!

    Chichikovovich September 17, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    I'm sure that Obama assumes that every moment he speaks in public is being recorded. Especially after the GOP ground the "cling to guns and religion" remark into the ground. And that was just from a transcript, if I recall correctly.

    BerkeleyBear September 17, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Once you become President I think there's an expectation that every fart is recorded, much less every word.

    As to that incident, there was some tape, but I don't think the tape ever went viral for whatever reason (probably sound quality). There was no video.

    And, of course, Obama wasn't blasting half the country as losers but trying to tell a questioner why some people are hard to persuade with logic. Slightly different scope, but expect to hear it linked to Romney on every false equivalency segment for the next month.

    Jukesgrrl September 18, 2012 at 5:37 am

    His childrens' farts are being recorded, too.

    Chichikovovich September 18, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Yes – and also, as Jon Chait points out, Obama was urging his listeners to reach out to such people, to recognize their struggles and sympathize. Recognizing that a President has to be President of all Americans.Romney is peddling debunked factoids to justify writing off half the country as not worth caring about.—

I suggest picking a few races in LeanD, Tossup, and/or LeanR and throwing five bucks to as many of these Dims as each of us can on ActBlue.com. Those look like the races where we can put our thumbs on the scale enough to tip the balance.

    I hope this is more epic than epic, cuz I am sick to death of what has happened to this country through all my adult years, since I graduated college a few months before Reagan was elected. Romney is nothing but the pure and undeniable distillation of greed, entitlement, racism, hubris and evil that Reaganism always has been.

    What's the likelihood of getting back the House?

    Negropolis September 18, 2012 at 2:55 am

    Very slim, that was, up until a week or two ago when things have been moving our way. Pundits are still saying we're likely to get a maybe a dozen at the monet when we need 25 for control. However, if we run up enough of a margin with the national vote, it'll flip seats that weren't even at play locally.

    I've even seen conservative estimates that we may only net five seats, which would seem absolutely crazy to me in a presidential year even if it's close. Hell, there are two (maybe three) seats here in Michigan alone that we could pick up. It's just a gut feeling, but I'm feeling that we'll be picking up more than a dozen seats, particularly if the president is able to replicate 52% of the national vote.

    BerkeleyBear September 18, 2012 at 3:35 am

    Redistricting + voter suppression + death of Blue Dogs as a group = a lot harder to get to 25. As nuts as so many freshman have behaved, the GOP did a good job in several states of strengthening their hold on their districts (I'm thinking of places like Ohio, where O will win but because of redistricting and the census Dems actually lost a seat before the election cycle ever began). Many of the shifted districts migrated from blue to red states, too. If Texas ever gets sorted out, there could be a couple pick ups there, Illinois is good for a couple of shifts (Joe Walsh for sure, maybe as many as 3 others), but Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin may not give any despite Obama's personal strength.

    Still, the worse Mitt does the better we get a shot at turnout wins in marginal districts. Plus there's a decent shot at keeping the Senate, although without filibuster reform not sure what will get done.

    Negropolis September 18, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I guess I'm just looking at it from my home state perspective. The GOP has been in control of all or most of redistricting for the past two or three Censuses, here, so they had squeezed about as much blood out of that turnip as they could. I also think the voter suppression bull is actually going to work to our advantage. We caught it early enough and stopped it in enough places that we kind of energized our base, so it might be a wash. I think it'll have the largest effect in PA, but PA is polling so blue that it's not going to change the outcome.

    BTW, we have more than a decent shot at keeping the Senate. Heck, we were still looking to hold unto by two or three seats before the likes of Akin.

    4TheTurnstiles September 18, 2012 at 9:09 am

    He answered three questions and then walked off. So that was smart. Get the pool reporters out of the bar at 10:30 Eastern for press conference and then walk out while they are still shouting questions at you. Way to defuse a tough situation, Mitt. You are sure to get favorable reporting from them now.

    Chet Kincaid_ September 17, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Meh, I need to vent, sorry if this has already been posted…

    But why the fuck is this video so newsworthy? He has done nothing more than state what the Republican base has firmly believed and espoused for at least all of my adult life, as attested by my email inbox. The strength of this belief is only equaled by the belief by such Republicans that it "doesn't count" when they themselves cash their government checks.

    Whose minds are actually going to be changed by this "shocking revelation?"

    Meanwhile, whoever made this video is almost certainly unemployed now, because people still expect minimum wage earners to keep million-dollar secrets. At least this wasn't an Apple factory worker.

    James Michael Curley September 18, 2012 at 9:30 am

    The issue is not whose mind is going to be changed it is who is going to make a redoubled effort to get out on 11/6 to vote for Obama and who in the middle of the Republican Political Spectrum and considers himself to be an Independent is going to say, "Fuck it, might as well wait for 2016." Close elections are not won these days by who gets out the vote, they are lost by who doesn't and Mitt has just killed off a lot of 'likely', but privileged white males in the 34 to 59 demographic.

    As to who made the video, I'm speculating it was an original or copy of the staff members whose job is to make a record of the candidate's appearance. The major candidates and even minor congressional candidates all retain at least someone to make an audio of the speech. Several times a Congressman has been speaking to a bunch of reporters and one of the recorders thrust into the melee is held by a guy I know whose job it is to do it for the campaign. Regarding the Romney tape, did s/he defect, lend it to the wrong person, leave it in a McDonalds – it may take years before we know.

    Guppy September 18, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I'm speculating it was an original or copy of the staff members whose job is to make a record of the candidate's appearance.

    Oh!, You saw it too.
    Good, I thought it was a bad acid flashback.

    Incitefully_Joe September 18, 2012 at 9:29 am

    I think it's worth contrasting Romney's hastily thrown together press release where he doubled down on these remarks with a certain other set of remarks, delivered by a different presidential challenger, to the people of Philadelphia, PA, on March 18th, 2008.

    Like Romney, this candidate was responding to the release of controversial remarks that threatened to derail his presidential bid. Unlike Romney, they were not the candidate's own remarks. Unlike Romney, this candidate did not respond immediately, but spent several days crafting this deliberate response. But unlike Romney, Barack Obama's response was so well-crafted that it helped his bid for the presidency, and was compared by pundits of various ideological slants to JFK's 1960 speech on religion.

    Don't get me wrong, I think these remarks are really, really awful -it basically generated an unforced "make or break" moment for Romney, late in his campaign. However, where Obama rose to the occasion, Romney's reaction in a late-night press conference to double down on the statements constitutes a piss-poor reaction, rather than a deliberate response, that really sinks whatever glimmer of a chance there might have been to get over this issue.

    Mr. Romney finally speaks from the heart.

    He will dismiss 47% of Americans as beneath his consideration. He will be the President of the 53% (or whatever percentage of the population votes for him.)

    This was no gaffe.
    A gaffe is when one misspeaks.
    This was not a mistake.
    Mr. Romney was telling it as he believed.

    For the first time, we hear a man speaking confidently, eloquently, because he is saying what he believes.

    Who knew. We had thought he was just a candidate uncomfortable with oratory. No, he was a man who was hiding what he really believed and unable to do it artfully.

    Yes, Mr. Romney has finally told the truth.
    And that is the problem.

    Goodbye, Mr. Romney.
    Go away.
    Go to your multiple homes, or to Switzerland or to the Caymans or wherever else you can be with your millions (or is it billions?)
    Go away and don't come back.
    Please.

    McPdx September 18, 2012 at 9:34 am

    I feel perfectly comfortable imagining President Romney "saving" Medicare, Social Security and other safety net programs. He really understands the people of America.

    A GAO study found that in every year from 1998 to 2005, approximately 55 percent of large corporations paid no corporate income tax. ** But just 2.7 percent of large corporations reported no net tax liability in all eight of those eight years.

    And this: "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’

    Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'

    And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"

    "Dependent upon government, who believe that government has a resposibilty to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you name it. "

    Not too long ago, the new target of ire was "hipsters on food stamps".

    So you can really get your poverty-shaming on from both directions at the same time. Not only should you feel bad if you buy non-nutritious crap like soda, or baked goods (??????), but if you buy things that are not crap, you are a strapping young [slur for an African-American male] and/or welfare queen. Or at very least, an hipster who doesn't really need to be on food stamps and are totally abusing the system by giving a shit about your food. Hell, if you use your oven or store the food in a refrigerator, that makes you a welfare queen, too.

    If from this double-bind you somehow conclude that the only way you could be poor and not offend peoples' sensibilities is not to eat food at all, well, Mitt Romney approves that message.

    Eh, he was a lot of things but true atheism seems like a stretch – although I don't doubt today he'd be firmly in the Darwin/Big Bang/Flying Spaghetti Monster crowd. Ronald Reagan was either an atheist or a Satanist, I'm just not sure which. And I'm pretty sure that the only God Warren Harding worshiped was JP Morgan.

    They also like to invoke him to justify secession and nullification, ignoring the fact that the law he was protesting when he said those things was essentially the love-child of SB1070 and The Patriot Act.

    I'm a Mencken fan, but for my money the best commentary on the imbecility of the news media is AJ Liebling's collection of his New Yorker column, "The Press." Though written in the forties and fifties, his observations on corporate ownership and bias still hold true, and remain way ahead of their time (and he's funnier than hell). You can buy it on Amazon for a pittance. http://www.amazon.com/The-Press-A-J-Liebling/dp/0

    glasspusher September 18, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Just got done reading the latest New Yorker, article on Upton Sinclair getting shot down in his gubernatorial bid in California. Another good read. Thanks for the pointer!

    TribecaMike September 18, 2012 at 12:11 am

    Thanks, I'll have to check that out. I've read a couple of books about Sinclair's campaign and the story reeks of deja vu, doesn't it?

    The great British film historian Kevin Brownlow's 1990 book "Behind the Mask of Innocence" has a lot of fascinating info about the corporate propaganda campaign against Sinclair.

    Geminisunmars September 18, 2012 at 12:18 am

    I thought the books were great too. Loved Robert Graves.

    TribecaMike September 18, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Owners of "the property" have been shopping around a remake for several years, but it's probably too literary for the studio's tastes. No need to remake it, since the original production is fine as it is. The novels are a hoot, as was the author Robert Hughes from what I've read (Anthony Burgess has some good snarky observations about his cultish followers in one of his memoirs).

    Sam Waterston was a pretty good actor before he turned into a granite statue somewhere along the line. He was very good in the almost forgotten Rancho Deluxe with Jeff Bridges back in the '70s.

    The only thing that was quite obviously off about the "Oppenheimer" series was that Oppy had a rather stilted, European accent that is very apparent in clips of the real man. Waterston didn't even attempt to reproduce that.
