    Video: Mitt Romney... The poor are not my concern

    Shortly after lunch yesterday, the liberal Mother Jones website published hidden camera footage of the Republican candidate addressing a dinner for 30 wealthy donors at a big Florida home earlier this year.

    "My job," he’d told them, "is not to worry" about people too poor to pay income tax. The five minutes of blurry YouTube video showed Mr Romney dismissing this humble demographic, which includes roughly 47 per cent of all Americans, as idle freeloaders who behave like "victims".

    "[They] believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it," he said. "They will vote for this President no matter what. These are people who pay no income tax . .. My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

    And he was wrong how? He's right. He will not get the votes that abuse the welfare system. Ain't any different than the right wing talking heads views.

    Some of you need to read Larry Elders book.

    He's right. A 100%. Personally i think ANYONE recieving govt assistance shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Obviosly Obama is pandering to this demographic and more importantly trying to increase it.

    Not the way the founding fathers planned it... And this country was NOT founded as a democracy, it was founded as a republic. Do you know the difference?

    Which brings up a question: Are we smarter than the founding fathers... or were they smarter than we are? One or the other is true.

    It is easy to guess which answer will come from someone... all one has to do is look-see if they are lined up at the govt feeding troph, or out there earning a living themselves...

    Just another media distraction to divert our attention away from what's happening around the world, the national debt, gas and food prices and so on...

    Anybody ever see Obama host a $10 steak dinner fundraiser in a poor neighborhood? Anybody?
    Even Obama panders to the rich with $10,000 plate dinners.

    It is not a question of if he is telling the truth or not, it is the appearance this gives to the 47%. Not a good way to win an election saying that half the population does not count.

    "My job is not to worry about people too poor to pay income tax.
    Put that on a bumper sticker and go make a fortune.

    Either way the poor are still allowed to vote here in America last time I heard.

    But if the Conservlicans get their way that will be one of the first things they will try to change.

    They cry out about personal Freedom.

    But really only want it for themselves and not any others who disagree with their political positions.

    Freedom without responsibility is anarchy... which leads to the destruction of the country. NO exceptions in history I have found... someone show me one.

    The reason poor folks should not vote is simple: They are neither smart enough nor wise enough to do so.

    Would the boss of a company give the key to the safe to the janitor? NO, because they would probably steal the $$$ and the company would fail. The janitor does not have enough sense to understand that using the money wisely will produce long term income... all they would want to do is plunder the money short term. It is just stupid (stupid as in literally taking a gun and shooting oneself in the foot) to plunder today at the expense of tomorrow. Now tell me which candidate for POTUS has a track record of plunder and which one has a track record of creating capital and wealth? If we want this country to be here in a decade, a generation, etc (in other words if we really care about our kids)... we had better get some business sense in govt. Otherwise... we ALL will be poor... and the so called poor today will not be equipped to handle it as well as the rich who know how to work and grow money.

    I wonder how the folks who are so greedy they do not care... would feel when they are in their 80's and their grandkids come over and cuss them out for destroying the American dream... But then the ones who are that greedy probably do not care about anything beyond themselves... Like a spoiled kid.
