SECRET VIDEO: Romney Tells Millionaire Donors What He REALLY Thinks of Obama Voters


When he doesn’t know a camera’s rolling, the GOP candidate shows his disdain for half of America.

During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent 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. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

The right-wing hate machine seems to be revving up its engines.

MNSBC’s political analysts Joy-Ann Reid of TheGrio.com and David Corn of Mother Jonesappeared on Hardball on Friday night, arguing the presidential race was has taken an ugly turn for the worse.

Host Chris Matthews pointed to John Sununu arguing Colin Powell endorsed Obama because they were both black, Sarah Palin using the phrase “shuck and jive” about the commander-in-chief, and Donald Trump demanding Obama release more documents and calling the jobs numbers “a lot of monkey business.”

“If the Romney campaign is really winning you have to ask, then you wouldn’t think they’d be acting like this,” said host Chris Matthews.

Reid argued the brouhahas were all strategic. “This is about over and over again tweaking the Archie Bunker crowd,” said Reid, referring to the 1970s television sitcom blue-collar character criticized for being racist.

On Monday and Tuesday Mother Jones published exclusive video that captured Mitt Romney speaking to donors at a May 17 fundraiser, which was held at the home of private equity mogul Mark Leder. Responding to a question about the “Palestinian problem,” Romney saidpeace 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.” At another point, the GOP presidential nominee told attendees of this $50,000-a-plate dinner that 47 percent of Americans—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.” These comments set off a media firestorm and generated headlines around the world. [Update: See additional highlights and search the full transcript of the video here.]
