Romney’s contempt for Americans is pretty awful. While it may be true that 47% of voters didn’t pay taxes and depend on the government and might vote for Obama as a result, I would argue that some of those people are the elderly, college students, and some are rural Americans who will vote for Romney and not Obama.
Whatever the accuracy of his statements are, he just comes across as an entitled douchebag, particularly hilarious because there’s another video from the same event where he tries to convince people he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
Romney is the classic asshat who was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple. God, if I were conservative I’d be voting for Ron Paul as a write-in candidate or Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.
Further, if Obama and the mainstream media don’t hammer Romney on this and sink his election chances for good, then nothing will in this campaign cycle.
Update: WaPo reports Romney is standing by everything he said in the videos.
