Mitt Romney went on the Neil Cavuto show on Fox today to try to spin his way out of obnoxious comments caught on tape at a fundraiser, which painted 47% of the electorate as good-for-nothing moochers.
I’m not going to say much about it, only post here exactly what Romney said then, followed by what he told Fox today.
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.
I’m hardly objective when it comes to this guy, but I believe anyone being honest will say that Mitt Romney comes across here as one desperate pup. Great to see him twisting in the wind like this.
