The Democrats think Romney just self-destructed by pointing out, um, THEIR ENTIRE STRATEGY
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 can see why Democrats are so offended. How dare Mitt Romney say they’re dependent on the government? Only Democrats get to say they’re dependent on the government!
Has everybody already forgotten “Julia”?
If you haven’t seen the whole “Life of Julia” slideshow on Obama’s campaign site, or if you need a refresher, check it out. The entire premise is that you’re dependent on the government from cradle to grave, and The Evil Mitt Romney is going to take it all away from you and make you fend for yourself.
That’s Obama’s reelection message: “Vote for me or Romney will take away all the free goodies you’ve got coming to you! By the way, can you believe he called you a mooch?” The Democrats based their whole convention around the premise that you need Obama just to survive. (Well, that and killing Bin Laden. Which they suddenly don’t feel like talking about anymore, for some odd reason…)
The economy is collapsing. Our embassies are being overrun. Our diplomats are being murdered, and our own government is blaming it on the First Amendment. And Obama doesn’t know what to do about any of it, except for his usual plan of lying his ass off. So he and his enablers in the media hope you’ll be distracted by Romney’s “gaffe” of criticizing the Democrats’ strategy. They hope you’ll be offended that Romney pointed out what the Dems have been telling you your whole life: You need the government to provide for you, and you can’t go a single day without a handout. They hope you’re as credulous as the people who voted for them last time.
If you’ve been watching the news for the past week and you can’t believe how stupid they think you are, that somehow they imagine you can’t see what they’re doing, I have two words for you:
Update: Courtesy of the mighty Iowahawk: Julia’s Circle of Life.
Update: From the Too Good to Be True file: The video came from Jimmy Carter’s unemployed grandson?
Update: Speaking of secret tapes, remember Rashid Khalidi? The LA Times hopes you don’t.
Update: This was such a big secret, Romney has been saying it in broad daylight for months.
