Well, this happened!
Mitt Romney was caught on a hidden video tape speaking at a fundraiser earlier this year, and you will not believe the things they caught him saying…
"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."
Romney went on: "[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."
Wait, what? That's it? That's essentially the Republican Party campaign platform. For all we can tell, that's Romney prepping for one of the Republican debates.
If this videotape has any actual effect on the election, it'll be to energize Romney's base.
