Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?

Mitt Romney trashes the 47 percent

Update: Sept. 18, 2012 This man wants to be commander and chief!  God help us!-Mem

Update: Sept. 18, 2012 Palestinians say Romney peace remarks ‘unacceptable’
Charts: You Might Be the 47 Percent If…

(You People! Free Loaders!  47% is almost half of America so that means, Vets, Disabled, Seniors, Unemployed, Much of the Southern States and All those Tea Party Republicans who stand in food lines! The same man who said middle class makes $250,000 a year! No concept of what America is going through and does NOT care! -Mem)

Mitt Romney, the guy who pays no taxes on millions of dollars thinks you're a welfare freeloader. God Bless 47% of America!
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.
And, I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49 [percent], he starts with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every four years.
And so my job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the five to 10 percent in the center that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon, in some cases, emotion, whether they like the guy or not . . .
Mother Jones said it did not reveal the date of the fundraiser or its location in order to protect its source. But nothing should protect Romney from the avalanche of criticism already coming his way.

As Greg Sargent notes, “[T]he ranks of the oft-discussed 47 percent, many of whom pay no federal income taxes but do pay state and local taxes, are swelled with working class voters and seniors, and many of them are obviously Romney supporters — and hardly think of themselves as Big Government freeloaders.”

That one-minute-seven-second clip lays waste to Romney’s concern “about the very heart of America, the 90, 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.” Worse, it reveals it to be a lie. He couldn’t care less about them, it seems. That condescending clip shows a contempt for half the country that demands an explanation from Romney.

And There’s More!

David Corn just said on TV that the now infamous Romney fundraiser was held in Boca Raton, Florida at the estate of hedge fund manager Marc Leder.

According to the New York Post, Leder throws a pretty mean party.
His “wild end-of-summer bash was the talk of the Hamptons this year,” the Post reported last December. “At the Bridgehampton home that Leder rented for a whopping $500,000 a month, guests cavorted nude in a pool and performed sex acts, while scantily clad Russian women danced on platforms. Dancers at the party also twirled flaming torches to booming beats.”

Update:  Romney say's he spoke off the cuff! other words it wasn't scripted...he said what he really believes! Wake Up America!-Mem

I agree with this comment made on Mother Jones and mentioned this when article was posted here-Mem
As usual the so called "mainstream" media and commentators in America missed the point.
The largest proportions of people in the nation that for various reasons don't  earn enough to pay income tax RESIDE IN SOLID RED STATES.
These people by in large aren't "Obama supporters" at all- but for whatever reason will continue voting for Republicans like Romney who heap scorn on them and work tirelessly to keep them impoverished.
