SHOCKING LIBERAL VIDEO: MItt Romney thinks people can take care of themselves!

The media are falling all over themselves today at a so called ‘controversial’ comment from Mitt Romney that was ‘caught’ on secret hidden video at a private fundraiser. What comment was so bad it yanked attention away from burning U.S. Embassies?

The full non-shocking video is below:

Part 1

Part 2:

TheBlaze reported:

Mother Jones on Monday released undercover footage of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney candidly addressing donors during a private, off-the-record fundraiser.

“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,” the former Massachusetts governor can be heard saying.

“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,” he continued, adding “so our message of low taxes doesn’t connect.”

“[M]y job is, is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

You can read more analysis from TheBlaze HERE.

But Glenn wondered how the media could be focusing on just a few comments considering some of the stories they are ignoring or under reporting. He read through a list of headlines he had been reading earlier in the morning:

“I have absolute disdain for those Americans who can support themselves but do not.  I don’t for those who can’t those who can’t make it. That’s what we’re there for.  That’s what we do as people.  We help each other. But there are far too many people that can help themselves that don’t,” Glenn said.

Glenn said the real criticism needed to be leveled at President Obama, who has routinely told those same people who aren’t paying taxes that the wealthy aren’t paying their “fair share”. He also reminded listeners that President Obama had previously derided Middle America as “clinging to their God and guns”.

“Here’s the good news: They didn’t see you coming then.  They don’t see you coming now.  They didn’t know you would wake up in time.  That you would apply yourself.  That you wanted to learn about your country.  Learn about history.  That you would take the time and teach it to your children.  They didn’t know you would ignore the mainstream media, and then find new media or make media yourself.  They had no idea you would have been involved in spreading the truth to anyone who would listen.  They had no idea you’d go door-to-door.  You’d go all night long if you had to. ”

“They had no idea and they still don’t.  They had no idea.  They didn’t realize that you would save America.  Because they’ve never seen it as worth saving.  They don’t understand you.  I do.”

“Millions of Americans do.  You are not alone.  You are not in the backseat.  You are in the driver’s seat.  Make no mistake of that.  No matter what the mainstream media says.  No matter what the government says to you know that you are on driver’s seat.  They are more afraid of you than you are of them.  They have reason.  That’s why they’re building these gigantic server farms to monitor everything you do because they are terrified of you and listen to me now Washington.  You should be.  Because come this November we are coming to re-claim our rightful place as the owners of this country.”

    This shows just how in league the MSM is with the administration; and how afraid of Romney they are – the world is coming unglued and they only bother to focus all their efforts on defeating Romney.

    Understand clearly – when the next regional war commences, either in the middle east, or between China – Japan as many of their top military leaders are now demanding, due to the culpability of the MSM, they will bear the burdern of guilt equal to that of Obama and his administration.
    It may not come under treason, but deliberate, willfull, and calculated neglegance of their duties sure covers most of it. I pray o’ Lord the truth comes out hard and fast; and may it show the corruption to the core of the administration and all involved.

    Agreed! The audacity of this individual is appalling, and he’s running for president – God forbid. How will we ever get our 12 hours of MTV?

  • SoThere

    Mitt Romney is right on with his statement. Telling the truth is foreign to the Leftists when they are running for office. People have to rely open Mic blunders to find out what’s really on their mind like when Obama said: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

    The exchange happened on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in South Korea and Mr Medvedev is heard to respond positively in English.

    He said: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

    Just be aware that when you watch this video, the YouTube channel that it is on is “MotherJonesVideo” … Mother Jones is a communist organization that focuses on propagandizing to the “labor class”.

    This is relevant and useful information just in case you decide to view the video directly off YouTube. Be aware that the core audience for the MotherJonesVideo YouTube channel will not typically be friendly to those advocating individual liberty. As often as not they’ll be openly communist/socialist.

    I say, GO ROMNEY. I am with him 2000%!!! He is right and what is wrong about speaking the truth. I will take Gov Romney any day over BO who is galvanting off to Letterman too busy to meet with Israel PM whilst chaos and anti american protest and violence is sprouting out like mushroom world over.
    The liberal media disgust me. They have consistently aid and abet BO, lying and distorting the truth to the general public. Anyone who isnt politically savvy and watches NBC etc, would come to the conclusion that Romney is evil and BO is a saint.

    Some level playing field, you despicable media!!! I hope this backfires on BO and his media!!! BO’s thugs have aattacked Fox news and Scott Rasmussen (claiming his poll is skewed since it showed Gov Romney one point ahead) say bye bye to 1st amend if BO wins!

    So much of life in America is what you make it, if you see obstacles, racism and bigotry-it`s there, if you see freedom, opportunity, peace and love-it`s there, you can take your pick and Obama has decided to be the most divisive, blame oriented, take no responsibility, whining president in history because there is a market for that, sadly and he knows it. Is this the example? I wish they would secretly catch both candidates when they are telling what they truly believe, then see how many would vote for Obama.

    Obama’s regime is acting like a drug dealer: Get people dependent on the drug called “entitlements” and Welfare, hold them back, don’t encourage them to take personal responsibility and POOF, you have bought and paid voters. Obama may claim “he” is not repealing the work requirement for Welfare yet his regime is approving states’ requests to drop this requirement that CONGRESS legislated. Romney is spot on, and the MSM is squealing, but not about the Middle East and attacks on our people.

    All I know is we need to make it known that they won’t be manipulating what he said and what we know. What he said is absolutely true. The ones voting for Obama are the ones with their hands out. If you asked any one of these Obama preachers/followers to “go ahead and pay more taxes on your own, if you feel so strongly about it. Just leave us out of it” OMG! They would have nothing to do with that one. If they can’t force you to do it, they won’t do it. That shows everyone what their true colors are. Do as I say, not as I do.

    I am not thrilled about the two Presidential candidates. But…..have to make a decision between the Moron and the Mormon. The Moron had his chance and he is sinking the United States faster than any previous President. He has taken way too many vacations at our expense and while most of us are cutting back Ms Michelle is helping add to OUR expense using OUR taxdollars to pay her high salary 22 personal assistants. Why is it all previous 1st ladies managed to get by on 1? The obama’s do not understand cut backs no more than the wealthy Romneys. Time for change so voting for the Mormon!

    oh thank God finally someone stated the biggest problem in Americia, “lazyness”!!!!

  • Navy VeteranCPO

    First thing I wanna say is that look at the hypocrisy of the MSM. They are all over Romney’s statement caught on tape and it is running in a loop on all the networks and news sites. Obama was caught on mic saying to Sarkosy that he has to deal with Netenyahu all the time. He is then caught telling Putin that he will have more flexibility when he is re-elected. The statements by Obama were covered for about a half day by the MSM and maybe two days by Fox.
    Romney makes his statement, says he should have been more elegant. He, however, does not back down even though it is hurting him politically. Obama makes his now infamous “You didn’t build that comment” thencomes out and says it was taken out of context because he saw it was hurting him politically. I am preaching to the choir but who do you want to run the country, someone who sticks by his statements or someone who does whatever will not hurt him politically i.e. words taken out of context.

  • greywolfrs

    Sounds like Romney was telling the truth, for once. He wasn’t telling people what they want to hear, he was just telling it like it is. It’s really too bad that there are people who can not handle the truth.

    I hope Romney changes welfare. 5 years and you are off and never allowed on again. If you have 2 children when you sign up and get pregnant again then to bad for you. No more money. There are teenage girls that feel welfare is their career. Their mothers tell them to get pregnant and go get the welfare check instead of going to school, getting an education and work for a living. There are generation after generation that go from childhood to welfare. Why not. Your every basic need given to you for free. But these people are slaves. They are being held down and oppressed by the free hand out. There are no promotions on welfare. There is no getting out of poverty while you are on welfare. Welfare has taken the father out of millions of homes. Women don’t marry the fathers because they cannot collect the welfare check. And all the while we go to work and foot the bill. The GOVERNMENT pays for NOTHING. Every dime that goes out and comes in is the taxpayers money. Time to stop the freebies inside this country and outside as well. NOT MORE FOREIGN AID. GET THE US OUT OF THE UN.

    I see his point, but just like any other generalization it isn’t true of everyone. I am in that 47% but I am able to use my critical thinking skills and realize that I don’t want to pay 30% of my income in taxes if I ever become wealthy.

  • new2la

    We all know someone that will always take the easy road; people who know how to game the system; People who get away without paying taxes; people that lie their way through life. It’s the nature of the beast. Romney was right…apparently, the press never told the general public that 47% of Americans are on food stamps and don’t pay their share of taxes.
    Yet every month, money I paid into Social Security, gets taxed as income. Something is totally wrong about that.

    Another thing, I agree with Romney on the fact that there is a whole block of voters who will vote for Obama, no matter what he does. There is a whole block of voters who will vote for Romney no matter what he does. Does anyone think that whatever you post on blogsites is going to change people’s minds? I am guilty of this.

    Even though Romney is telling the truth, the media will try to destroy him just like they did with Palin. There is no other crisis more worthy of news today than smearing Romney at all costs. Romney better prepare himself really well for the upcoming debates by exposing the lies, item by item, no matter how the contenders are asked the “hard” questions.

    Very good point….I think Romney wants the full video released because he was
    answering a specific question about who his campaign is targeting…He may have even continued to say that he’d like to help people rise out dependency.

    When he called a ‘hasty’ news conference, I wish he had said; “I know this was sudden but I wanted to talk to you reporters before you had a chance to coordinate your attack on me”.

The only victim in the room was the Mittster… a victim of his own idiocy.
    All I can say is, Romney/Ryan is freakin’ AWESOME. In fact, I’m all for Romney/Ryan 2016, Romney/Ryan 2020, etc.,etc. Take care of yourself, Mitt. Maybe you can keep running until 2040!

    dstresen,
    I agree with you about Romney showing the truth. I politely disagree with you about O’Dumbo being charismatic. Oh sure, he flits around like an arrogant “cool dude”, but when he’s off of his “pacifier” (his “tele”), he mumbles & fumbles like a puppet without his puppet master! THAT is when he tells us his TRUE intentions & the agenda of the “left” that he’s not supposed to tell but can’t help himself! He’s PROUD of what he’s doing to destroy this nation that he despises!

    Just think of the POWER he knows he has as the leader of the free world? With every “executive order” he’s allowed to get away with, his narcissism is being inflated & it just empowers him even more to complete his agenda. He’ll lie, steal, kill, commit fraud, go around Congress, halt the election…anything to get another four years to finish us off for his “Global Utopia” which will never exist! He’s just like a serial killer who WANTS credit for his acts but can’t tell because he’ll go to prison or be executed!

    To me, he’s NOT charismatic! He’s just a radical, revolutionary, criminal street thug who happens to be able to read a teleprompter but STILL can’t pronounce “Corps”!

Enjoy future depopulation and birth control through forced sterilization and Democide! It’s absolutely coming SOON! It really is a travesty that most of you are just too arrogant and stupid from years of TV propaganda to accept the truth. The Jews, Poles, Chinese, Russians, Ukranians and Armenians didn’t think it could happen to them either, and given the state of the massess of puffed up with self pride, pampered, ingnorant and totally clueless dumbed down Americans these days, the American people are the PERFECT candidates for the NEXT historical fascist takeover and holocaust in fact, it’s actually beginning to happen at this very moment all over this country, but few are able to see it in between Dancing With The Stars and Monday Night Football.

    Actually while because of his Russian accent he sounds villainous to us Americans who have been indoctrinated to accept Russian accents as a sign of evilness, I would say that Obama is just lying to the Russians and using whatever excuse he can.

    The concerns Russia has are DARN accurate, that the missile shield we’re putting in Europe is actually meant to stop Russia, not Iran. Obama may be buying for time while getting it operational and preparing to strike Iran.

    We conservatives got tricked into being pro-war when for the past 100 years the GOP was the anti-war party (Eisenhower, Taft, etc.). This is because Christians don’t like entering foreign civil wars and wasting trillions on nation building.

    Do you actually think Romney is a “SNEAK” because he told the TRUTH? If you think for one split second that Romney is even a grain of sand as bad as O’Dumbo, then you have some serious problems of being able to discern truth from lies, right from wrong! Romney was NOT my choice & I didn’t vote for him in the primaries, but we’d be better off voting for Satan himself than to give O’Dumbo another 4 minutes, let alone 4 years to finish us off!

    Obama cancelled the Missile defense system on Sept. 17th 2009, the anniversary of the 1939 invasion of Poland by the Soviet Union, under threats by Russian Officials.

    This is not a surprise that Obama has secret disarmament plans ongoing with Russia. Obama is a anti Colonialist. He hates America and would disarm the nation if he was allowed to.

    How much more obvious is this ‘mountain of horrific inhumanity’ vs the ‘sweep this under the rug’ ineptness of obama recent bombings and killings of people who did nothing wrong. So much for his(obumma) ‘let’s treat these people with dignity and respect’ policy. Sure , how about equal reaction to an action? Bad guys(terrorists)do not follow respect nor laws. Fairness? Yes we as idiots give them all consideration to fair treatment, while they mock, spit , RAPE and scat on us,our way of life, our laws and our willingness to ‘get along’. We’re a joke. Want to defeat the ‘bad guy’ ? It’s easy, administer swift and more than equal retaliation. If we’re dumb enough to take them alive, try them by the laws THEY live under not ours. They are not U.S. citizens and deserve no ‘free’ representation. When they are U.S. citizens, try them as traitors with a brief trial which will commence and end within two weeks of capture. Under their own laws, not one will ever be found innocent. Why allow Americans who have done more good to the world than any other nation combined, to be mocked , raped , tortured and ruthlessly murdered because of their own greed to live by their laws and ‘God’. After awhile when we have lost this Nation as it once was, then they’ll go after the liberals(that new breed of democrat who think because they say nice things about them, they’ll be unharmed)and their lifestyles of decadence, waste, unrestrained wealth and homosexuality. Evil wins because evil has no conscious.

    Right on with your power of observation. A buddy of mine got caught up with the new ‘power to the people’ organization Move On .Org, years ago when they burst onto the scene. I warned him then to watch out. He even procured a copy of the movie Runaway Jury ( I’ve since lost my respect to the young ‘actor’ I once enjoyed) and bought refreshments and rented a storefront for the free viewing. one quarter through,he realized his mistake. Most times socialists etc start up fronts with the key words like ‘Family” ,Worker’s Party, Humane, Children and any other heart rendering emotional flavor of the month title. The moral of this story is beware the wolf in sheep clothing.

    So what, did you know obama’s wealth and what he’s up to before you voted for him 4 yrs ago? My answer is big fat = NO….so what if he’s Mormon, he is human and cares about people…his wealth doesn’t mean he’s crooked…or you’re talking about yourself! It takes one to know one, got it! get over it and move on and do the right thing…if you’re going to vote for obama…hey good luck!

    yayi4525,

    If you & your family have worked all your lives & pay your taxes, then Governor Romney wasn’t talking about you (unless you’re still not a legal citizen)! He was talking about all those who DON’T work, DON’T pay taxes & keep their hands out wanting more & more…free day care (while most people have to pay 1/2 of their income for day care or one parent has to stay home), free contraception, free education, free computers & on & on. Those who depend on the government make more than my partner & I do & we work 16-20 hours per day 7 days per week. Our current ineligible “president” WANTS people under government control! The more people he has dependent on him, the more control he has over every aspect of their lives.

    So IF Romney DOESN’T win the election, GOD HELP US ALL! The America you came to when you were 11 will never exist again! God Bless your son for serving our country!

    God bless America & protect America from people like O’Dumbo!

    Could someone please tell me how telling the truth about who the Obama supporters are is shocking and our President not providing security for our embassies on 9/11 and talking to Pimp with a Limp on 9/11 instead of going to his intel meeting and being actually attacked with four Americans murdered isn’t…These people are really good at what they do deflecting from the real story, with a non story and actually gaining voters by doing it..Romney in no way meant S.S and medicaid to be lumped in that group they paid for it..besides I don’t know any seniors who were even dumb enough to vote for him the first time..So you keep saying he just offended all the seniors …You live in an alternate universe..I saw what he said and want to vote for him more now..I like the undercover Romney better then the one who is too nice…16 trillion in debt keep saying it. because they want four more years to get 51 percent of the voters bribed into voting for dems for life who cares that it is unsustainable if they taxed the rest of U.S. 100 percent and one more Supreme Court Justice to take away your guns and the Constitution..

    If this is all the media has to “attack” Romney, then I would not be too worried. The tried and true tactic of attacking your opponent with the media complicit in the attack and getting their talking points directly from the WH is something the educated (meaning up on the issues in this election and get their news from sources other than MSNBC or Mother Jones) voters see right through. What’s more is the middle that Romney speaks of have prob taken the time to educate themselves on the issues and we all see past the media bias. However, there is a core of Obama/Democratic supporters who drink from the MSNBC kool-aid fountain and even if Obama was to replace the Constitution with the Koran (like he did last week) even if Obama came out and admitted he was a muslim on a mission to make America a muslim nation-they would still vote for him-as long as they know they will get their check. What’s more is they like the idea of getting that check from a dirty cracker who worked hard and made money because “they didn’t build that and because of that we deserve to take a large portion and have it redistributed to us”.

    How anyone can take a negative stance on anything Mitt Romney has said is beyond a sense of reasoning. I truly appreciate his stance on making people accountable for their own existence, increasing our military, decreasing our debt and coming out strong. We can not continue to thrive in a society where 60% of the people are supporting the other 40% of the people. I am old enough to remember when welfare was an embaressment, not a career, when college was for the dedicated and hard working, not an entitlement, when credit cards were only used during an emergency, not for living large, when “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country” was a way of life for an honorable, hard working and proud generation. We have lost something very precious during the past decade beginning with 9/11 and more recently in the past few years with the collapse of our economy. In addition to the loss of our standing as the strongest nation in the world we have lost our pride. We have become a nation of helpless, entitled whiners. No wonder other countries view us as weak.
    Romney Strong, Obama Wrong in 2012!

  • Idecidemyfate77

    I could start here by going on and on about how I am a self employed business owner that started with nothing and now, 21 years later, I own a business that has provided for me and my family and employs a small group of people, helping them meet their own needs and pay their own bills. All without government assistance. But, I’d rather focus on something else. Gov. Romney is being “ripped a new one” by the main stream media, not because they really believe he has disdain for the “poor”, but because they want him to lose. The hidden video recording could have shown Romney saying anything contradictory to the left wing ideology and we would have the same result. It is true that we have a certain percentage of people that were born into entitlement, will live on entitlements and will pass that way of life down their family chain. Not a lot any of us can do about that. There are the ones that are no doubt in need of help-and they get it-and for that, benefits are understandably justified. But, the decision by my government to “redistribute” what I have worked for, in order to give to people that it decides are in need, is not my idea of raising a middle class. In fact, it will do the opposite. There are millions of people like me, working hard, involved every day in our business. Making a living at something we have sweat equity in. Seeing it ebb and flow with good times and bad. Determining that we need to do more to pay our “fair share” sounds nice and warm and fuzzy. Stop right there. What is my fair share and how do you know I don’t pay it? I pay taxes. I contribute to the government coffers. But, my fair share is the money I choose to give locally, here in my community. I choose to give to the needs of my neighbors and church and local school. I like knowing that my money or labor or in kind service is actually getting to the place of real need. So do millions of other business owners like me. And the rich? They give. Romney gives about 15% of his money to charities, people in need, locally and nationwide. Countless other “rich” people do the same thing. In the Obama “redistribution” system, the government would have that money, giving it to the needs they saw fit to give to. I don’t want a government that can’t even put a budget up for consideration deciding how my money should be distributed. Obama was quoted as saying that Romney had a “shoot first, aim later” mentality in his comments that condemned the U.S. Embassy’s apologetic statement during the siege of the Embassy, burning of the U.S. Flag and raising of a foreign flag. The recent bailouts literally fly in the face of that-billions handed to stimulate jobs, growth, reduce unemployment, and thousands of “shovel ready” jobs certainly ended up well. I have a friend that invested in over 2,000 FEMA trailers left over from Katrina. A large percentage of them were NEVER USED. Of the ones that were used, most had been abused by the people they were provided to. He (and the other investors) bought them all at a huge bargain. Shoot first, aim later? I know we all know someone (or multiple someone’s) that receive disability, medicaid, food stamps. housing, health care coverage and a myriad of other benefits (from federal, state and local agencies) that spend their time cruising around, hitting the local scene, wearing the latest fashion and in some cases, blatantly milking the system. Some go so far as to actually trade their benefits (food stamps, especially) for cash or illegal drugs. Some of them supplement their benefit by selling drugs-or working “beneath the table”. For the millions of truly qualified recipients, they introduce a level of waste and abuse that would allow more sustained help to those truly in need. When I hear Romney say they will vote for Obama no matter what, I hear him speaking about those that are not incentivized to do any better. They are content to remain right where they are. But for those that want better, Romney does offer a plan. If my business can grow a little, then I can hire a few more, give a raise, offer a benefit and contribute to the economy. Of course, when that happens, I will make a little more, part of which I will give away locally, to the needs of my neighbors, community and local school. Multiply that by millions of small business owners like me and you can see how creating an opportunity for a thriving middle class could erupt into sustained growth. By contrast, take away my chance to grow and tax me more, the the chance that I can hire, give raises, benefits or give to the actual needs in my community diminish or go away. IF the free market is given a chance, those people that want better, will get better. When allowed to work, it will raise the level for everyone. I believe that most people want to rise above poverty and dependance, making a better way for their families, provide in their communities and leave a path to prosperity for their children and grandchildren. I know this is a long post, but it is my belief that the Romney/Ryan plan will achieve this.

    The truth hurts doesn’t it? It always amazes me that the people who insult others the most, can’t take a little criticism themselves. Those who have sharp tongues often have thin skin.
    What the big deal? Is the truth no longer something that can be stated? If it’s politically INcorrect…you betcha! I don’t know the mind of Mitt Romney, but I can only hope and assume that he was ALSO talking about all of the wealthy white liberals in this country who ALSO have that sense of “entitlement”. They may not be as “dependent” as lower income whites and all other groups, on government goodies. But believe me when I say that there ARE WAY TOO MANY people of ALL races and of ALL economic levels who ARE dependent entitlement junkies!!! AND YOU ARE ( at least partially ) the CAUSE of this countrys economic problems.
    There are more people on various types of “welfare”, of every race and income level, than we have EVER had before in this once great country. And elected Democrats KNOW IT! They stay in power by making you fat, lazy and addicted to the TEETS of the federal, state and local governments. They DEPEND on their dependent
    con(ned)stituents to keep them in office where they can keep their power and become the NEW slave masters of the modern era.
    George Bernard Shaw said…”"A government that robs Peter to pay Paul, can always depend on the support of Paul”.
    Cyril Vernon Connolly, a literary critic and writer said…”"Slums may well be breeding grounds of crime, but the middle-class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium.”
    These are ALL areas that breed instability in this nations economy all the way down to the local level. It’s amazing to me that after 200+ years as a country and we FINALLY have
    the decency to elect a black man to the White House, that he ( and a few former Presidents ) screw up the economy SOOOOO bad that “hope” an “change” is GONE!
    The government no longer works for us. We the People work for them. But hey…we’re all socialists now according to Newsweek magazine.
    Congratulations to all of you rich and poor, black and white entitlement dependents.
    Thanks to you, the NEW slavery has begun and Obama is the new slave massa!

    Everything Romney said was the truth. But then, liberals have a hard time with truth since they barely have a nodding acquaintance with it. The media is having a mouth-frothing, feeding frenzy over this while the world is burning and the black flag of al quaida is flying over a half dozen of our embassies and threats were issued against more of our diplomats. China and Japan are threatening to get into it. Our credit rating is downgraded once again. The unemployment rate is as dismal as ever. Israel is trying to tell the world that Iran is a handful of months from nuclear capability and they will go it alone to stop them if they have to. And our so-called “president” has nothing better to do but run around to stupid and vapid entertainment “hosts” to laugh, giggle, and tell jokes. What a mess we are in. How can a single person in this country with more than one working brain cell vote for this joker?

    I will not insult the President. I may not agree with him, but I served under two presidents when I was in the military, One republican and one democrat. I was raised Republican and have always voted Republican. I’m just not happy with the way the Republicans have turned in their tone towards the President. Its absurd. To the people here saying Gov Rom said the truth about the 47%. Yes its true but I have friends who are relying on this assistance not because they don’t want to work but because they have injuries physically and mentally. Some of these guys,black,white,latino were the bread winners for their families. And for some born rich fella to come out and say what he said, its insulting to vet out there. People here talk of Iran, I clearly don’t understand what people want the President to do apart from going to war. And I urge anyone here thats urging for war to go and register either themselves or your sons. Yes the President has been bad with the economy and but even as not so clever I am, I know when the very people I voted for are filibustering everything the other side is bringing then there is something wrong.
    The present Republican party has no soul, we have the tea party, the Ron Paul supporters, The Mitt Romney Elitists. I don’t even really know what we stand for apart from Barack is a muslim, socialist, communist, moron, not american and every other crap.We the Republicans need to come together and rebuild the party, come back stronger. Romney is not the leader we need.He doesn’t unite us. I don’t trust any man in power who wont show me his taxes. Its a public office and we need to know all, not some Manchurian candidate.

    I spent my life growing up on a farm where we grew our food, miked out cows, baked our bread and raised our meat to keep our family of 9 with food. We learned how to contribute, do our part, and do it with love and no complaining. We were greatfull to our parents for food, clothes, a roof. We sang in church and praised God for being so blessed, no matter how really poor we were. No one took anything for granted, no one was just supplied without being part of the solution.

    Mitt is right, as much as it both depresses and frustrates me, all those people who think someone else owes this to them will find our next president with the same anti-American, anti faith and anti pride for the US embodied by Ombama. Thank God I have faith to know that my life isnt over, that heaven will bring rewards and peace, but the journey watching this nation realize the finality, in some cases too late, a huge burden on my soul.

    The old saying be careful what you ask for because you just may get it, applies in the inevitable and derailed train on the way to hell.

    Thank God that He is still God and I have that to give me peace.

    Yes, I agree, it’s truth. I look back on my youth of having nothing much, but we didn’t know we were poor. I remember eating a pecan sandwich when my mom didn’t have anything else. Today that’d be a meal for a king at $14 a pound.
    I also remember small apartments, no TV, no eating out, no movies, no anything because my mom couldn’t afford extras. She even washed clothes in the bath tub with a scrub board.

    Today, if they don’t have a washer/dryer, refrig with ice maker, 2 TV’s, a computer, cell phones, salon visits, hair & nails done, expensive makeup, new clothes, shoes, etc. etc. they think they need someone to provide that for them.
    We’ve brought up a group of people who’d rather lose pride in themselves and take unnecessary goodies from entitlements they haven’t earned. All we should give anyone is shelter, food, medical and only the necessary clothes to work. The rest is fluff and we shouldn’t be providing that to anyone.

    Been there and know what it’s like. It’s an incentive to help those in need learn to help themselves so they can recognize pride in their own achievements and not have a hand out for what most of us earn on our own. We’ve bred a whole generation of takers and they just keep on taking and never give back.

    My mom could have probably gotten help, but she wasn’t raised that way and taught us to never take handouts unless it was the last resort. Even my husband eats peanut butter sandwich by choice 2-3 X a week. You don’t always need beer, cigarettes, liquor, etc, instead of food for your kids.

    I hear what you are saying. My brother and I were raised in a lower middle class family. If we were ”missing” anything, we didn’t know it. We had a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs and food on the table. For us, life was good. On the otherhand, husband grew up in a large family during the depression. Money was very hard to come by since his father was a coal miner and, at times, worked only once a week. His mother, bless her heart, had to do the ”heavy lifting.” She planted a garden, they acquired some animals for food (chickens, pigs, cow for milk/cheese) and they bartered. And she pinched pennies. Just about everyone they knew lived as they did so none of them looked upon themselves as ”poor.” All accepted their lot as it was and didn’t look for outside help. They took RESONSIBILITY for their lives! Shocking, I know.

    Good Post BUT remember some of us have gone the right route even though “it seems” we have been snaking on the benefits for someone who “looks” like he should be working and paying taxes. I am a honorable veteran. I have been too busy working to get in trouble and still have a CLEAN criminal record. I am a registered voter.I also worked and payed taxes for 28 years also. In November of 2005, I came down with severe blindness that took a career completely away not to mention many other occupations I no longer can work that I would like to work. I registered for Vocational Rehab and was accepted after being tested by 4 different doctors. I worked 3 part time jobs at the same time for 3 years, had 6 surgeries and recovery, and went to school for a new career along with a advocate watching over on a regular basis. After the completion of a long federal investigation, and a new career, the feds asked me to go under a Federal program of protection. I originally said no,but after the explanation that I could go blind overnight, I accepted and now have been on the program 4 years. All this on the BUSH ADMINISTRATION. In the last 4 years, I have not been on any other program under the Obama administration until now! Next week I will use my entitlements as I am broke, more blind than ever, and now need a major surgery. Of course, when I am more stable, I will get off those entitlements and knock on doors everywhere looking for work with medical benefits(if I can find any?) to be self sustaining and a FREEDOM man. Anyone who gets in my way, will be hit with a federal indictment and a lawsuit!
    Just to let you know how housing works—when I get my guaranteed housing, If I make $ nothing that month, I pay nothing, but if I make something up to $3000.00 a month, they charge me 30% or $900 a month for a really small place, After $3100, I am disqualified from the program. I also take on a regular basis Drug tests, minus medical pot as I am allergic to most man made medicines. Food stamps cutoff is $1137. Medical help is $931. Federal lawyers is 7% of a federal lawsuit return. Vocation to go back to work is free. Be careful what you hear, I am checked on a regular basis and can never go over by a dollar or I am disqualified immediately. I am the real deal!!

    I have seen many who should not be on any gov help as they are making tooo much to stay on any program and ruining it for who really needs the help!!, Remember some of us have gone the right route even though “it seems” we have been snaking on the benefits for someone who “looks” like he should be working and paying taxes. If the programs disappear, I will have a lot of trouble and I am a honorable veteran. I have been too busy working to get in trouble and still have a CLEAN criminal record. I am a independent conservative, ex-republican. .My family has lived here in the USA for 230 years and most of my grandfathers worked in government. I am a registered voter.I also worked and payed taxes for 28 years also. In November of 2005, I came down with severe blindness that took a career completely away not to mention many other occupations I no longer can work that I would like to work. I registered for Federal Vocational Rehab and was accepted after being tested by 4 different doctors. I worked 3 part time shitty jobs at the same time for 3 years, had 6 surgeries and recovery, and went to school for a new career along with a advocate watching over on a regular basis. After the completion of a long federal investigation no cop has ever gone through,, and a new career, the feds asked me to go under a Federal program of protection. I originally said no,but after the explanation that I could go blind overnight, I accepted and now have been on the program 4 years. All this on the BUSH ADMINISTRATION. In the last 4 years, I have not been on any other program under the Obama administration until now! I never voted Obama and never will, but Romley is another Bush in the shadows. Next week I will use my entitlements as I am broke, more blind than ever, and now need a major surgery. Of course, when I am more stable, I will get off those entitlements and knock on doors everywhere looking for work with medical benefits(if I can find any?) to be self sustaining and a FREEDOM man. Anyone who gets in my way, will be hit with a federal indictment and a lawsuit in order for me to get back to work.!
    Just to let you know how housing works—when I get my guaranteed housing, If I make $ nothing that month, I pay nothing, but if I make something up to $3000.00 a month, they charge me 30% or $900 a month for a really really small place, After $3100, I am disqualified from the program. I also take on a regular basis Drug tests, minus medical pot as I am allergic to most man made medicines. Food stamps cutoff is $1137. Medical help is $931. Federal lawyers is 7% of a federal lawsuit return. Vocation to go back to work is free. Be careful what you hear, I am checked on a regular basis and can never go over by a dollar or I am disqualified immediately. I am the real deal!!

  • Jim

    Don’t forget many corporations are also milking the grants, subsidies and tax cuts without paying taxes like General Electric and they are running the lobbyists in Gov.. Everyone also is not taking their drug tests except for new hires. Look at what Pelosi has screwed up in government. She is no different than the many senators and governors who are milking their own corruption in our government. Supreme court says they don’t have to take a drug test, but can run this country? Also look at your liberal city councils all over America, that are milking federal money by misdirecting dollars for other projects and private businessman! Where are their drug tests? I could go on and on!!! Romley says he can produce 12 million new jobs but shows no real solutions. Not any different than the current pres. I bet those are $8-11 jobs you can barely live on in this inflationary economy. Next year its going to get real expensive just for a gallon of milk. Romley does not worry how much a gallon of milk or gas will cost. He was born with a silver spoon when he was born, unlike you and I!

    Romney insulted much of his own base. The retired elderly are among the 47%, and the ARE entitled to their social security. Many low-wage, blue-collar workers are social conservatives who pay no fed. income tax. They work hard, and Romney just insulted them. Beck shows no indication that he understands the break-down of the 47%. Beck is ignorant about them. Beck has made millions selling his ignorant nonsense to the uninformed.

    Look it up: see who the 47% are. They are MOSTLY people who do support themselves, possibly even people dumb enough to support Romney and Glenn Beck.

    Beck “hates” the Republican Party, he claimed just months ago, and now he’s rationalizing the most plutocratic, incompetent candidate for president since Hoover. I suspect that Beck would be helping Ronald McDonald become president if he was the only alternative to Obama. You followers of Mr. Beck will never figure this out, but Mr. Beck is a racist. It’s subtle; I missed it for years.

    He talks of the middle class being his priority but it is all talk, and more lies. The only action he has is to get the middle class dependant on Govt cos this way, they would always be dependant on govt and he will forever secure power. I have said many times, it is like a drug pusher has over the drug addict.
    The only priority BO has is priority towards himself. Actions speaks louder than words. I hope many have their eyes opened to see this. How many times have we been given glimpses into his real agenda ,eg Joe the Plumber, careless whisper to Russian premier, you didnt build this, his apology tour, need I say more…If you cant see this, I am sorry, you have to be ignorant or blind!!!

    I notice no one has made comment to your post. And I have no doubt, the 47% comment alienated a whole slew of people who are on “entitlements” who have been WAY less fortunate than those who look down on them. Many of those people are maybe living on a crappy social security check and or some other misc. crappy “entitlements” that might pay (at most) a fraction of their living expenses. I agree that there are a heck of a lot of able bodied people who take advantage of the system but it is a complete injustice to group those people with the ones who need it.

    Many people on “entitlements” have worked their whole lives being contributors to society and to the SS retirement program and disability program but if they dare to “need” them they are branded as leaches on society. Yet We have all these self righteous hypocrites who will, and do (no doubt) collect theirs no matter what they have made in the end. But nobody talks about that.

    And Charity? Who in here is supporting that person who is in need so the government doesn’t have to? Without rubbing it in their face? Believe me, I don’t believe in big government but entitlements were created because society dropped the ball. And until we accept responsibility for those in need, to lift them up out of poverty (if need be) “by showing them how to fish”, or taking care of those who can’t. You will always have big government using their need for a power grab.

    We are our own keepers, working in the soup kitchen once a year won’t cut it.

He said they need to bring all of us down to the same level ass the rest of the world in order to bring their plan to fruation. On checking out these Bildebergs I found Soros, Clinton, The head of fb and google, Senators and many rich and powerful people are involved in it. They plan on leading and controlling the sheep for their own ends. There will be an elite group of rich people and the rest of us. Unarmed and unable to proteect ourselves.

Clintons welfare reform also believed it the way to wealth is to create it and have people working not waiting for govt lk at Greece and all/o socialist countries they don’t work. Entitlement and big govt is not the way. Romney is right and we all know it.Americans know what freedom, hard work gets them self esteem and a way to end poverty the Dems(obamaprogressiveleftistssocialists) don’t believe it and are trying to make romney out to lk bad that is not easy.

    The truth of the matter is even worse. Look at many of the so-called entrepreneurs who invest in companies who make money off of govt. contracts including the military. Just see how many business people would fail if dear old granny was not getting a social security check. If we were back to the way things started in this country, people would be forced to work longer hours and people would not have the time to listen to people like Glenn. Everything man endeavors to do eventually collapses if it be businesses,govts etc.
    WHEN this collapse comes, the people who made money off the same system they condemn are going to have a huge dose of reality dealt them. If you think you can have gold and silver here in this country and you can still live here when the crash comes, think again. Govt. is willing to steal everything you have even if it comes to outlawing private gold,silver and even land to keep itself alive.

  • 47percentsolution

    The real irony, is that the bulk of the 47%, i.e., “the takers,” live in red states, and they’re happy for tax revenue to be redistributed to them from the wealthier successful blue states. Hey, red staters, here’s how we fix the deficit: Since redistribution of income is such a terrible thing, you should just send back your Social Security checks, stop letting your parents go to the doctor, take your kids out of school and stop driving on public roads. Problem solved.

  • new2la

    And that is why your guy is going the way of Jimmy Carter. Democrats like to demonstrate how very caring they are when in fact, they like giving other peoples money instead of their own. Those on the left give less to charity than any other group. So when talking about compassion, I would consider Mr. Romney’s service to his brothers and sisters in faith more so than the fake in Washington, who doesn’t feel the need to help his own family members.

    Vladimir Putin wants another Soviet Union, plus all the slave nations giving all their blood and treasure to Russia just like before the Kremlin was duped into bankrupting their country trying to make a particle beam work in the earth’s atmosphere. All because the (Russian Double-agent) moles in our own CIA believed Reagan actually HAD a “Star Wars” missile defense system to work. This if we all can remember came about from Reagan not signing the missile defense treaty to downsize 75% of American ICBM’s for a 30% reduction in the Soviet arsenal, then the next morning Reagan flew back to Washington from the meeting in Iceland. The Kremlin was certain then that Reagan HAD a working ‘Star Wars’ system.
    Putin at the time was head of the KGB.
    Russia wants the good old days back when they could live like princes on the backs of the Slave Nations. President Obama on the other hand means to both downsize America’s military, downsize our industrial sector, downsize our energy production and destroy the American economy. Only in this way can he then implement the ‘Emergency Preparedness Act’ (He created nine months ago by executive Order) and stay on as the First Premier of America, never having to bother with another election. It really makes no difference what-so-ever what anybody else wants to do, Obama is going to do what no enemy of America in a hundred years has been able to do, destroy America. Oh yes all of our guns will be taken away before the next election anyway from Hilliary’s push to implement the UN gun Rights bill, this will allow an easy transition from Democratic Republic ruled by a Constitution to a socialist state akin to communism for all the non previously elected other parties. All Democrats will become the Inner Party. The deficit will be null and void to China with the concept, “We don’t owe you anything China, we are now Communist too!” : Words Obama will utter in the near future.
    It would be nice to think that the Constitution as it used to be before Obama changed so much of it, would actually be able to elect Mitt Romney, but I don’t think it will happen. I would like to be able to live a world described by IDECIDEMYOWNFATE77, but I don’t think it can happen, not anymore. Myself I have many ideas for products that will help people save on their electricity bills when using their air conditioner, and for other products and services that do not yet exist, but with Socialism looming on the horizon I don’t have any incentive to bother. It won’t make any difference, all the money I’d make and all the employees I could hire would be taken away from me by an ‘Inner Party’ member and I would be put in prison or probably shot.
    From this post alone I am violating the 347 law Obama secretly pushed through congress and secretly signed into law March 12th 2012, that is for 20 years in a federal prison.

    I need to comment about entitlement mentallity. What Mitt Romney said is true. My husband and I have always struggled financially. At one point we did get food help, and during that time I saw many people who were not grateful for the TEMPORARY help, they acted as though it was something they were entitled to have all the time. I saw people in stores using the food cards who just loaded their carts down with high salt, high fat and high calorie foods, and of course they were not lightweights. Then so we knew they would wind up being unhealthy and their poor health would then be paid for by the state as well. These people do not take personal responsibility for themselves, they take, and take, and in the end cost everyone more money, with no care about their part in this. We fight to be independent even if we struggle financially. We’d prefer to take supplements, natural medicine and a clean diet, not only to live long, but not be a medical burden to our society in the future. I have been in the trenches and it is true, all too many who live off the government will vote for Obama because he is the one who will promote their lifestyle, one of government dependence from cradle to grave with no personal responsibility. It is a sad symbiotic vicious cycle. I am glad Mitt said this, because it is true, and no, we do not wind up paying a lot in taxes right now, and we still do believe this.

    You have really outdone yourself. This post confirms the low wattage of your brain in your own words, so kudos for revealing you are merely a stooge for the left and in no way concerned about what collectivist policies have done to this country and it’s people. This line of bull you are pushing is not only mentally imbalanced but factually challenged and it is rife with your usual lack of reasoning capacity.

    You and a good deal of people on the left can’t understand the fact that Romney was correct in his assessment of Obama supporters, you can’t handle the truth of it so you recoil and react like a bunch of idiots with your hair on fire. It is laughable that you lack the perspective to deal with reality. Your chief tactic is to bounce off the walls and make all sorts of outrageous claims, and accuse people of things that you have no idea whether they are true or not. You think this is a perfectly sane and rational thing to do, and you excuse yourself of the responsibility to act in a civil manner in public. I’ll bet if I was standing before you you wouldn’t dare to be such an offensive boor, now would you? No, you would look down at your shoes, and try your best not to offend me because you lack the fortitude to be as aggressive in person as you do online. I’ve seen your type before, and mister your tough guy act isn’t impressive. All you manage to do is make yourself an ass, and not a particularly good one at that. You are mediocre and nothing special.

    Take them out of their urban settings and they wouldn’t know how to survive. Listening to them complain is comic.

    They will do anything to derail Romney, no matter how insane they have to get. The man told the truth about them and the truth hurts the entitlement class. So be it.

  • VindicatorX

    There is something wrong with people who can’t handle it when someone speaks the truth about them to the point they feel compelled to manufacture lies and make up a story to support their bruised egos. Romney is an executive and is accustomed to analyzing problems, winnowing out the facts and dealing with the reality of them.

    Something is wrong with people who can’t deal with directness. There’s way too much hypersensitivity being allowed in society today – no one seems to be able to take criticism even when it is to their benefit. This comes from a basic desire to avoid the disturbances that come from change. I’ve seen this in my own work experience, but once the option of resistance is made unacceptable people either adapt or take the alternative and move on someplace else. In a work environment, administrative decisions are made by leaders and the subordinates accept the change or they find another job. In life, people learn to accept the truth, or they become liberals.

Let’s also look at those who rake in millions in investment income every year who are exempt, and all the corporations who steel billions of tax dollars from us overcharging for bloated government programs so they can grease our politicians to get even more contracts. What about government workers who cruise down easy street making way more than private sector workers. (excluding regular military of course, who are way under paid and treated like crap to protect our rights). Elected officials who live like royalty on the tax payer dole, crony donations, and perks. (Or best explained as stolen money and bribes) I could go on and on. My point is, welfare doesn’t only extend to the poor. 47% !!!??……Indeed. I think everything needs to be put on the table, stop singling out only those people who don’t pay “income taxes”. . Lets stop dividing our country and look at the truth, all the sacred cows are destroying us. Politicians are the biggest leaches on the a$$ of society so they have no room to talk. Our Republic and Capitalism both work best when Government does only what it was designed to do, protect freedom and make way for commerce to flourish with no favorites. The only issue here should be, do we want small government or not.

    Excellent post. However, it must not be taken as a statement of derision for the disabled. There are those of us who worked as long and as hard as we possibly could, paid hefty taxes and mandatory disability insurance, and still ended up physically (possibly even mentally) broken from our work-, unable to continue in our professions. So while we heal, and get a new direction in life, we are on SS disability. It was never meant to carry people throughout their lives, or the remainder of their lives, though. If the person is able to work after healing from their injuries and acute pain and problems, then they have an obligation to themselves and to the other tax payers –to DO it- to get off SSD. The biggest failure of our Government that I can see, here on home-soil, is that they have no follow-through! The government should be retraining and assessing healing for people who have become disabled and have healed, even if they STILL aren’t able to go back to their old profession, or have been on welfare- help them become employable. The goal should be to GET people OFF SSD/welfare if its at all possible. That would be job-creation, BTW, for the dependent, as well as for those who would work with them in (re)educating and retraining them. Honestly, many people who have become disabled feel such a huge loss of their profession, as our profession is essentially seen to many of us as our ‘identity’- ie, “I’m a nurse.” “I’m a Doctor”,.. “I’m a truck driver”, et al, that they just feel so overwhelmed in envisioning a new identity its easier to them to just stay an invalid, and live poorly. One doesn’t get rich on SSD. Many of us are good Christian folks who are also patriotic (thus, terrorists, I am sure, per DHS,) and don’t WANT to take advantage of other taxpayers. Unfortunately, there is really no avenue of re-entering the workforce. We either jump out there, face the dragons (and costs of re-education without the income to support it) ourselves, and just DO it, or we just sit home, afraid that, since we are usually chronic-pain people now, nobody will want to employ us. Its crazy. I must add, finally, that I KNOW there are many, many people who are newly on disability , because they cannot get jobs nowadays, and have turned in desperation to SSD for their income. That is a shame. I get that they just figure if they didn’t, our government would give the money to some foreign country that hates us, or buy drug runners guns with it. But its still wrong. However, tell that to a Mom who needs to keep a roof over her kids’ heads, so she comes up with the mysterious malady of chronic migrains. That used to be the fave disability of druggies, since they would get pain meds to combat that imaginary massive headache, and would then sell the drugs to their friends for income, above and beyond the SSD payments they received… Saw it a lot in my old profession. Our Nation is SO messed-up right now that it will take literally YEARS to set it right again once Obama is out of the chair… WE need to not only fix the problems he caused, but to fix the problems that other Dodos have caused on a national scale, as well..

    Uh-huh. I get you. There are many many people who are validly disabled, and it is an unfortunate thing. I am, too. I still work, tho, like you did for as long as you could. I applaud you. You have done all you can. Yes, if you go over a certain amount of income, you get dropped. That is where many of us need to be brave when we are either starting our own business or re-entering the workforce. I dont expect you can re-enter, r/t blindness, now, but some of us can, and we haven’t a CLUE as to whether or not our employers will decide that our being on daily pain meds (even narcotics some of them) is a liability to their business,and drop us a week or two after we start work. Unfortunately, in its (not) wisdom, the government has helped create programs where an employer gets PAID by the gov to hire some of us- so they do, knowing full-well they will drop us like a hot potato after the free money from the government dries up after so many weeks. How dumb is that? Of COURSE a business will take advantage of that free money by claiming they need to hire someone, and have a heart for the disabled. A free employee for a few months? GREAT! Teach them a few skills, then boot them as soon as the money stops. Saw it time and time again. Gov says, oh, well, at least you learned a few skills. FOR WHAT??? to pay an employer to employ us is to invite people to take advantage of the system. DONT hire us for a few weeks to get the free money. Hire us to try to teach us a new vocation or career that we can become good at, to make us marketable. zs

    Many of us pay tithing that helps support the poor in our communities, and many of us donate to food distribution centers for the poor. I help support a handicapped person by sharing my home with the person,, but haven’t the income to fully support the person. Most of us dont. So dont rail about Charity, unless you are walking the walk. Your attempt at a guilt trip is going nowhere. So many of us have family members, usually parents, living with us, to keep them out of a nursing home, and there is a LOT of Charity by the good folks of America, and its given with love, without rubbing it in their recipient’s face. Usually the only ones that get it ‘rubbed in their face’ are they ones that are lazy and need to get off their arses.and support themselves. Finally, dear, BIG government will ALWAYS be in a constant power-grab, simply due to the fact that politics draws flies and maggots as well as good patriots.

    But how do WE prevent it, when pollies like B.O. just toss their feet upon the desk and write up a new executive order to become king of the world? We gripe to our pollies, but what the heck good did THAT do besides give them the idea to lie and cheat and steal just like B.O.?

    my fave game when I was a kid was “kick the Can”. Made a great noise when kicked, and chasing it gave us time to think and dream about our future and what we were going to do. Kids dont have that dream-time nowadays- they have instant gratification, and mental constipation from too much GIGO.

    Anytime that you say, “The people who have made a life off welfare are lazy”, someone else says, “You’re a racist.” Quite to the contrary, it’s not a racist remark because 39-percent of those on welfare are white, whereas only 38-percent are black. My neighbor only gets off her butt at the first of the month–she’s white. Most Americans feel as Mitt Romney does. We despise the lazy and irresponsible for taking without conscience something that is NOT owed them. The only people ever owed anything, are our parents and only then because they gave us life. That’s it!!

    “SHOCKING LIBERAL VIDEO” Uh, WTF is “liberal” about anything that Gov. Romney says?

    ANS: NOTHING!

    No one will accuse Beck’s headline writers of being very smart. Ditto for his followers who are buffaloed every day and willing pay for more of the snake oil that Beck sells.

  • Guest

    From above, President Obama had previously derided Middle America as “clinging to their God and guns”. I know Beck plays loose and fast with the facts and quotations, and this is just one more example. Obama actually said, referring not to “Middle America,” but … in his own ACTUAL words:

    You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

    And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0408/Obama_on_smalltown_PA_Clinging_religion_guns_xenophobia.html

    Beck misleads you like this all the time, but if you’re a reactionary, gullible and ignorant fool, you won’t catch the many distortions, lies, and exaggerations that Joseph Goebbels — I mean Glenn Beck — conveys.

  • B. J. Parker

    I’m a grad student who is working on my PhD and who is certainly within the 47%. Does that mean that Romney will never be able to convince me to “take responsibility and care for my life”? Seriously!? How could someone say such a broad, sweeping thing to diminish the life of others whom he or she has never met?!

  • Sandie

    The Romney video that was peddled by David Corn from Mother Jones was not the full video. It was edited down.

  • SoThere

    Of course it was but telling the truth is not a negative for Romney. It scares the crap out of the leftists that’s why they have to try and slander the man.

    Obama doesn’t care about the poor, hell President Barack Obama attended a $40,000 per ticket fundraiser at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 – more than twice the median household income of an American family.

    The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as ‘Ace of Spades’ because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club.

    Obama really feels for the poor in this country but what the hell, he’s cool for partying with a drug dealer. How much BLOW was at the party??? The 40/40 is known for having high quality BLOW.

    What would the MSM do if Romney attended such a party of debauchery and excess? It almost matched the parties Obama gives in the white House every Friday night!

    I think you missed the point Coret, I was commenting on the “narrative” at hand. Romney made the comment, I’m calling him on it. He is wrong to group and judge everyone in the 47%. I am not guilt tripping anyone, just stating the facts. If facts offend you then I can’t help you on that. With all due respect; if you “walk the walk” I don’t know why you would be offended. My post was in response to “Guest” as nobody was acknowledging his situation. I don’t think people in his situation should have to combat ignorance coming from any political or private group, or individual. This guy served his country and payed his dues and he deserves respect. What he doesn’t deserve is to have his situation “rubbed in his face”. Let me ask you this, if you have a private disability insurance premium and you become disabled and need to collect from it, are you entitled to it? If not then why would you continue to pay in to it, or be FORCED to pay into it? Also, are you planning on collecting your S.S. retirement when you retire? If you do then your one of the 47% Romney claims has to “take personal responsibility and care for their own lives” and “think they’re ENTITLED to healthcare, food, and housing” and who also “think they’re victims”. With all that he has created a self fulfilling prophecy when he stated; ” they will vote for Obama no matter what”. I don’t like Romney much but at least he’s not a self proclaimed Marxist. So I have to vote against Obama.

    We need to sever ties to Israel and other foreign nations. We need to do that, or there is going to be World War III – and I don’t think America can survive a nuclear attack. We need to leave Iran alone, let the powers next to Iran, the EU, Russia, China,l deal with it since it’s more in their own back yard. We can not afford this crap.
    Care of ourselves? Some of us seniors are LIVING on 800 a month social security check. It’s not like we didn’t work all our lives. It’s not like we didn’t try hard – but had no luck in other ways. And of those seniors living on so low an income, we don’t qualify for Medicaid or other helpful programs. So it’s 800 a month, period.

    The liberal Left is continuing to a new low. Not satisfied to simply “Goldwater” Romney, they have to sneak around, record comments, then edit it to suit their deceitful reporting. Despicable. Someone should ask if the news media is “afraid” to write decent, unbiased articles to inform the American public. Just what “mafia” is running this country?

    This is the kind of hyperbole you Becksters love right?

  • Guest

    What I find interesting is the profound ignorance up (from Beck) and down (throughout his supporters) is the ignorance about the 47% which is actually 46%. Most of the 46% are hard working people who do not make enough to pay income tax (thanks to Republican policies of earned income credits and child credits). The 46% include hard working waiters, cowboys, maids and plenty of other people who work a hell of a lot harder than Glenn Beck does sitting in his chair talking $hit about people that he’s clueless about.

    The 46% also includes thousands of millionaires who have weaseled their way out of paying taxes altogether, perhaps even Glenn Beck this year of his many business expenses.

    You’re right though; he distracts his sheeple with other stories (calls himself a rodeo clown, remember?) and has gullible people thinking that Romney is right to insult hard working folks (that he disdains for not being wealthy enough).

  • Carrie

    I think we should really stick it to the liberals by saying we are voting for Obama to make his poll numbers go up giving them a false sense of security. Then when election day comes they will think he has a leas that cannot be beat and many of them will stay home and not vote. Its common knowledge republicans show up at polls more than democrats so lets let them think they have the election in the bag, a vast majority will stay home because they will feel like Obama has enough of a lead that their vote won’t count. Then we showing up in droves on November 6th to vote Romney in. Give them a little taste of their own medicine. Doesn’t bother me one bit when polls show Obama leading. He’s such a narcissist he probably has pollsters in his pocket too. I hope his demise is by his own ego!

  • Sandie

    Victor, you are a really pathetic liar and propagandist – yellow at that, like a yellow bellied, yellow livered coward. You were the one who kept telling others they were cowards for not using their real name, or for Guesting their posts – and here you are, you are the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE around!.

    BTW – if you are too stupid to realize by now – you are not fooling anyone. You just aren’t bright enough, “Guest” Victor.

    Victor, if you’re a reactionary, gullible and ignorant fool, (which you are), you won’t catch the many distortions, lies, and exaggerations that Joseph Goebbels — I mean Obama and his circle of liars, convey to keep the tools like you enthralled.

  • VindicatorX

    Got any proof, Victor? I suspect this, like all your other lies has absolutely no basis in fact. As always you assassinate your own character while you are still in the starting blocks.

    What a dope you are to think anyone is buying into your stupidity and lies.

    Why don’t you just admit you are jealous of Beck and his wealth? Your meager amount of accomplishment pales in comparison to his and that is what really goads you – the fact a person who doesn’t have a college degree is rich enough to buy and sell you fifty times over really is what gets under your skin. Come on, confess and I promise you will feel better. You spent all that money on two degrees and still Beck out-thinks you! That is really the base level of what is eating away at you, and everyone here can see it and knows that is the beating heart at the center of your vendetta, isn’t it?

    The fact is you are inferior to Beck in just about every way imaginable, and the level of success he has achieved while you remain a weak and insignificant blogger is just more than you can bear, isn’t it?

    You keep on lying, though. It’s not going to fill up that gaping hole in the center of your being, there is only one thing that can do that, and you will never figure out what that is, or avail yourself of it.

    The 47% comment has been blown way out of proportion by the leftist media. Listen to the whole comment! Romney was saying that he wasn’t going to worry about the votes from those who will vote for Obama because they are indebted to Obama and the Government.

    The “Free cell phone idiot for one.”

    Many of them WILL vote for Mitt Romney. There are plenty of life long Republicans who are now on SS and Medicare. Many of them have already seen the cuts from Obamacare and there are more coming in the future.

    The MSM made it sound like he didn’t care for those people which is a blatant lie of the left. Don’t fall prey to the leftist propaganda the leftist are depending on you to buy into their lies to get Obama reelected.

    From Victor on Alternuts:
    “Sandie, I’m going to tell you this once; and you can share it with your buddies. After consultation this weekend, I’ve been advised to take your comments to the regional office of the FBI and let them deal with this systematic and relentless harassment.

    This is your one and only warning. If you persist with your stupid flame war, I will ask the FBI to deal with your criminal behavior. This goes for The Cowardly Thief, So- Curly the stooge, Benny the racist, Momma, I can’t spell, Grizzley and the rest of your reactionary clique.

    If you think I’m kidding, if you want to risk a knock on your door from the government, then continue your petulant and childish flame war.”

    Victor’s is the thinking of a twelve year old. He is stupid if he thinks refuting his idiotic, aggressive and nasty posts is a crime. The first amendment guarantees everyone the right to have their say without restriction – the only exception being when doing so is a threat to public or private safety. He’s been throwing his fly-weight around for years, but where has it gotten him? This is yet another example of the intolerance of the thin skinned left who can’t take the fact that people will not be lambasted by his remarks without standing up for themselves. He’s resorting to using the FBI to threaten people because all of his attempts to silence those he makes enemies of have been an utter failure.

    The FBI won’t look into anything like he thinks – They will want to see all of his posts as well. As soon as they do, they will see that he is the initiator, and continues to propagate his own “petulant and childish flame war.”.

    He might as well name all the characters in the Wizard of OZ too, I hear they don’t like his idiotic ramblings and threats either.

Now that the political tide is changing and challenging the status quo, Victor will be out of his comfort zone ‘debating’ commenters here. He won’t show up as the Time Protester for a while. He’s already changed his clothes and his id, whether he’s an uninvited “Guest” or some silly antithetical personna of his self-delusion. His post was his last cry of defense: “I’m telling my mommy!!!” Hiding behind her skirts will not protect him from his own stupidity.
