Buyer Remorse

Oh Mitt! Say it isn’t so …

“There are 47 percent who are with him [Obama], 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. These are people who pay no income tax. …

Mitt doesn’t differentiate Democrats from Republicans. His base must see all these freeloaders as being Democrats but it’s not true and Mitt’s supporters are going to vote for him no matter how disastrous he would be for this country, but not all Republican voters are firm Romney supporters. I expect we will see a significant number of Republicans crossing over to vote Democratic because they now see that the Republican candidate is not concerned for their welfare and in fact has insulted them (There was that 50-something white Southern Baptist that declared he was now going to have to vote for the muslim).

Democrats are going to be sure to get out and vote against such a twitt. Doesn’t Romney know that most of the people getting some form of government assistance are either too old or too young to be earning enough income to pay income taxes (they do pay social security, sales tax, local tax, etc.) or they are working two or more jobs trying to put food on their family’s table and still not earning enough to pay income taxes. Fact is, some of the hardest working people in this country are a large part of Romney’s idea of freeloaders on the teat of government.
