Good Day World!
News flash for Mitt Romney for President campaign:
There’s certain things people don’t forget when it comes to being insulted. American voters aren’t likely to forgive Mitt Romney’s comments in the last election for several reasons.
Who can forget Romney’s famous 47% gaffe that even he said “did real damage” to his campaign?
Thanks to the magazine, Mother Jones Americans got a candid peak of Mitt’s real feelings about segments of Americans.
The cat was out of the bag when when Mother Jones released the secretly-recorded videos of Mitt at a private fundraiser telling donors:
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what…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.”
Romney’s revealing gaffes like “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.” still won’t endear him to anyone.
Another memorable one-liner, “Corporations are people, my friend” Mitt said during a question-and-answer session at the Iowa State Fair in 2011.
It was an unscripted moment after people urged him to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations to help fund social welfare programs followed by days’ worth of headlines.
What really amazes me about Romney’s possible third bid for the presidency is he (and his handlers?) must think Americans have short memories. I read where Mitt is going to “re-tool his campaign” this time around.
Unless there’s a sudden case of national amnesia, Mitt and his minions are going to experience the same rejection as the last election.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
