Mitt Romney: it’s not my job to worry about the poor


Secret video emerges of Republican telling rich donors that 47 per cent of Americans are ‘victims who pay no taxes and will vote Obama’

A day that was supposed to see Mitt Romney reboot his faltering presidential campaign ended in disarray last night, after he was caught telling a room full of wealthy donors “my job is not to worry” about attempting to appeal to poor people.

Hidden camera footage of the event, said to be a dinner attended by 30 of the Republican candidate’s biggest fundraisers, saw him dismiss 47 per cent of Americans as freeloaders who “pay no income tax” and behave like “victims”.

Speaking in what appeared to be a hotel function room, Romney claimed that the overwhelming majority of voters who support Barack Obama’s do so because they are “dependent” on government and “believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing”.

“There are 47 per cent of the people who will vote for the President no matter what, all right?” he said. “There are 47 per cent who are with him, who are dependant upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.”

“They will vote for this President no matter what,” he continued. “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.”

The remarks are remarkable since Mr Romney gives few interviews and is usually highly scripted. At one point, he joked that he’d have more chance of winning the election if his father had been born in Mexico. At another, he spoke of being born “with a silver spoon”. In a third, he admitted that the campaign would use his wife Ann “sparingly, so people don’t tired of her”.

After being shared on the left-leaning Mother Jones website, videos of the event rapidly went viral last night. Mr Romney’s spokesman did not initially comment, but Obama’s campaign pounced on them as further evidence of Mr Romney’s elitism.

“It’s shocking that a candidate for President of the United States would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half the American people view themselves as ‘victims,’ entitled to handouts, and are unwilling to take ‘personal responsibility’ for their lives,” they said. “It’s hard to serve as President for all Americans when you’ve disdainfully written off half the nation.”

It was too early to say how the comments will effect voter sentiment. But the portion of Americans who do not pay income tax includes many elderly voters, most students, and the vast majority of the recently unemployed. They pay plenty of other taxes, and may now think twice about supporting a candidate who dubs them “freeloaders”.

The snowballing scandal capped a day that had begun with Mr Romney insisting that there will be no changes to his inner circle, despite weeks of flat-lining poll numbers.

Staff had promised a “reboot” of his campaign, which until now has focused on attacking Mr Obama. Beginning with a speech to Hispanic business leaders in Los Angeles, aides promised that he would outline specific policy objectives that would define his first term in office.

Behind the scenes, that narrative was already muddied, however by talk of discord among his senior strategists. Late on Sunday, the Politico website published a gossip-filled exposé of alleged disarray within the Romney camp, in which “aides, advisers and friends” blamed a senior aide, Stuart Stevens, for their recent loss of momentum.

The Politico piece had alleged that Stevens was responsible for making a series of late changes to Mr Romney’s underwhelming speech to the Republican National Convention. He was also blamed for failing to vet Clint Eastwood’s bizarre performance at the event, where the 82-year-old actor held a rambling conversation with an empty chair.

“As the mishaps have piled up, [Stuart] Stevens has taken the brunt of the blame for an unwieldy campaign structure that, as the joke goes among frustrated Republicans, badly needs a consultant from Bain & Co to straighten it out,” it read.

Stuart Stevens: Romney’s ‘mad professor’

Warm, approachable and slightly eccentric, Stuart Stevens presides over Mitt Romney’s campaign with what friends and critics have described as a “mad professor aura”. The 58-year-old has a colourful background, having skied to the North Pole and consulted on such Hollywood films as The Ides of March. Despite reportedly being Mr Romney’s third choice as chief strategist, he has unprecedented responsibility, combining the role with that of chief ad-maker and chief speech-writer.

    Rmoney doesn’t care about reducing taxes, he only wants to further reduce the tax burden on the most filthy rich of greedy murderers, and make the rest of us pay for their wars instead.

    Income tax is war tax, as illegal as the wars being prosecuted;
    payments upon usury, for monies that were printed in your name, privately.

    America’s political process is nothing more that a carefully rehearsed charade designed to give the sheeple the idea that their vote means something when some of us know the jews control both ends as usual. Screw election day and America the complete fraud.

    What I actually mean to say is this: flush BauerRothschild and their pathetic power structures through the toilet. They are finished. The Rothschilds&co are banca rota. The fiat money they created before, the money out of thin air, the zero’s in front of the comma on the black screens of their computers, is pierced trhough by the BRIC and their 140+ countries of this world, who talk about and deal im real money, that is money valued, covered by real goods&services. Putin talked about this at the closing of a summit in Russialast week. The Rothschild controlled zionato countries of this world are in a doctor Strangelove echec with their back agains the wailing wall. The money that came out of it is less than toiletpaper. The majority of the world don’t eat their shit anymore.The European Soviet Union still does, as the recent (manipulated?) Dutch pencil elections prove. But WWIII cannot be launched by the ZioNato countries. They know this. Common sense will triumph. The zionato bloc is not suicidal. There is a new balance of power. Remember on top of this the awakened (=911sraeldidit!!) faction of the Pentagon is part of it.

    And the real black scenario for the beloved USA that Vidrebel Horse 237 writes so concretely about will only happen if the USA does not listen to what Unified Field (=Christ) Scientist Dr. John Samuael Hagelin is offering the country.

    @searchlight. One good thing, I don’t read my reading glasses reading your comment. The kaballa cabal IS bankrupt materially (to say they are spiritually bankrupt is smashing in an open door they have been so from point 1). They cannot buy any more gold with their paper money. Google: Benjamin Fulford latest news. There are several blogs that mirror his weekly post in its entirety. He has been saying since months that the Rothschild IMF went on a begging journey to Japan,China and other Asian countries. A bussiness man I met in nightlife of Rotterdam who did not drink a drop of alcohol nor was he stoned, confirmed this: they came to borrow money from Singapore.
    So inform yourself, lighthouse. CIA O

    From BF’s latest post: (…) The owners of the Federal Reserve Board crime syndicate, for their part, have been trying to steal money wherever they can. In one of their maneuvers a General Rosiere (first name not known) has been travelling around with a flotilla of battleships stealing gold from Indonesia, the Philippines and elsewhere, White Dragon Society sources say. The stolen gold has been taken to the Freeport mine in Indonesia before being moved on to Hong Kong for re-smelting. Henry Kissinger has been an executive at the Freeport mining company (…)

    Fulford for whatever reason has been snuffed at by many alternative news sources but he delivers the goods, Mark Glenn shows an open mind by placing comments directing at BF&co. The Trillion dollar Keenan lawsuit is one such major thing. But ultimately the Pentagon, Law Enforcement Agencies etc. have to enter the White House, the FED buildings, the msm factories of lies etc. without knocking ASAP and bring these banksters@their personnel to justice, before they start rounding up many in the US and give them a single ticket to a FEMA holiday resort where they will be gassed, finito. A real holocaust is on the way, Jose! And you will not be there to tell how nice it was. Kis-singer should sing his last song in orange in GITMO.

    Btw If you ARE (happen to be) a rich man, beware of gold. It is clear you can’t trust your goldman sachs etc. banks anymore and have withdrawn all your cash you stashed there but you don’t trust this cash anymore and start to convert it into gold. There is dealing in fake gold bars in the midst of Manhattan:

    I am not surprised of what Mitt Romney said or has been planning to do… I am surprised of those stupid people who still support and have faith on him and his corrupt party…
