It seems that Mitt Romney is enjoying the taste of his foot.
In a recent hidden video, Romney is caught speaking in a negative manner about the validity of Obama supporters saying that those who back President Obama—are “victims” who are “dependent upon government” and “pay no income tax.” He noted: “My job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
He even went on to say such things about the “Palestinian problem,” Romney said peace in the Middle East is not possible and a Palestinian state is not feasible, telling donors that Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”
Romney’s remarks, denigrating nearly half of the electorate, sent the Romney campaign iinto panic mode. The campaign hastily convened a late-night press conference to address his controversial statements, and Romney stood by his “off the cuff” comments, while conceding that they were “not elegantly stated.” He claimed his comments where merely a “snippet” and not the “full response.” That was not true; his comments were shown in full. He added, “I hope the person who has the video would put out the full material.”
Luckily for us, the nice people at MotherJones.com were happy to oblige.
What do you think about Mitt’s comments?
