Mitt’s Forty-Seven Percent Comment
By Scott Rohter, September 2012
Forty-seven percent of Americans aren’t going to vote for Mitt Romney because they don’t care about his prescient message of lowering taxes. That’s because they don’t pay any federal income taxes. Instead of paying taxes they actually receive some kind of federal entitlements or subsidies, so they will vote for the politician who promises that they can keep their entitlements and subsidies even while the United States of America keeps going deeper and deeper into debt. We are 16 trillion dollars in debt right now and we are getting deeper and deeper into debt every minute. I guess the truth really hurts because ever since Mitt Romney made his forty-seven percent comment, all of the liberals in the media have been repeatedly pouncing on his remark with such zest and relish that they appear to be hot-dogging him over it! On top of that they have all been throwing such a hissy fit over his remark, that it appears to have been re-examined and attacked from more than one hundred and forty- seven different angles!
Mitt Romney’s very accurate representation of the truth such as it is, has made him look rather inconsiderate and insensitive some people say. At least that is what the liberal media keeps telling us, and not coincidentally that is exactly what President Obama keeps saying too. He said it sounds to him like Mitt Romney “hasn’t been around”… No Mr. President you are the one who hasn’t been around!
You haven’t been around real businesses long enough to know how they actually operate. That’s why you loaned hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money to Solyndra which subsequently went broke! That’s why you ordered General Motors to begin production of the all new Chevy Volt which isn’t selling very well, and which needs to be so heavily subsidized just in order to even be considered when most Americans are in the market for buying a new car that it is extremely unprofitable to make. It is you Mr. President who has not been around!
I have seen the Liberal Media attack Mitt Romney so many times over his forty-seven percent comment that I am certain they think they have struck real pay dirt in their effort to disparage his character. It goes right along with their unfair portrayal of him as a “greedy corporate raider who stores his unjust plunder in offshore bank accounts in the Cayman Islands in order to avoid paying taxes.” Of course none of this is actually true! But there was another politician from Massachusetts who actually did that. It was none other than Ted Kennedy the Democrat’s “Lie-in” of the Senate…
