A recently released video of Mitt Romney speaking at a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser in Boca Raton Florida reveals that Mitt Romney has given up on Mideast peace and half of America…specifically Alabama.
During the primary campaign, he said that he was “not concerned” about the very poor. He bragged that his wife drives a “couple of Cadillacs” (complete with their own elevator). He built a career on what his Republican opponents call vulture capitalism.
Back in May when he was among friends, Mittens mused from his multimillionaire bubble that, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the President no matter what”. This 47 percent of America believes that, “They are victims…who believe that they’re entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. So my job is not to worry about those people”.
I confess to feeling entitled to housing and food myself, so call me a class warrior. I guess it’s a miracle that I’m able to get out of bed each morning without the President turning down my sheets.
Let me try to get a few facts through Mittens’ beautiful head of hair (each comb furrow so pronounced and shiny):
So who are these filthy freeloaders? Is he talking about Iraq war veterans mooching off of the V.A.? Retirement community residents scamming us by cashing their social security checks? College students fleecing America with their lefty Pell grants and student loans?
Conservative columnist David Brooks put it this way:
"The people who receive the disproportionate share of government spending are not big-government lovers. They are Republicans. They are senior citizens. They are white men with high school degrees…The people who have benefited from the entitlements explosion are middle-class workers, more so than the dependent poor."
And which state is one of the worst offenders according to Mittens’ logic? Alabama. We are the fifth worst offender to be exact. Of all 50 states, Alabama ranks fifth in the number of tax filers who owe no income tax. So, Mitt’s job is not to worry about us. I officially call on Lt. Governor Kay Ivey, Governor Robert Bentley, Chairman Bill Armistead, and every other Republican official who has endorsed Romney to publically disavow their support for him since he obviously has so little concern for us.
Let’s not forget that Mitt Romney pays so little in taxes that he has to hide his money in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. The man who uses every trick in the book to pay no taxes has only shown us one year of tax returns despite forcing his running mate, Paul Ryan, to disclose 10 years of returns and despite his father setting the gold standard by releasing 12 years of returns.
What’s really concerning is that Mittens continues to bash the President for engaging in class warfare and dividing the country. At the fundraiser where he was caught on tape he even said that, “The thing I find most disappointing about this president is his attack of one America against another America.” I guess Mittens doesn’t remember Sarah Palin’s description in 2008 of the "real America" and I guess he’s a clueless hypocrite.
On election night in 2008 I sat with friends and watched a young Senator make history and deliver the following remarks:
"To those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your president, too."
I am proud to support President Obama and I’m glad to know that Mitt Romney has given up on Alabama. It makes my job a little easier.
