It won’t make a difference..we can handle the truth
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. My job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
This part of his speech is all that was put out in print. The rest of Romney’s speech stated, he would have to go after the middle class to win the election. They are a large voting block and are being squeezed by Obama’s policies of tax and spend. Their incomes have been the most degraded, their jobs are disappearing, they are the ones most hurt by inflation (brought to you by the Federal Reserve), their incomes are slowly eroding and are at 1995 levels, they’re the ones who have lost most as their property values have decreased by 50%. We’re grown-ups, we can handle the truth. Expect Obama to try and distract from his failures to make Romney the bad guy for telling the truth. A statement was released from the Romney campaign;
“Mitt Romney wants to help all Americans struggling in the Obama economy,” she said. “As the governor has made clear all year, he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people who are on food stamps, nearly one in six Americans in poverty, and the 23 million Americans who are struggling to find work. Mitt Romney’s plan creates 12 million new jobs in four years, grows the economy and moves Americans off of government dependency and into jobs.”
Since when is that a bad thing? How does it denigrate Americans by wanting them to have jobs and move off the subsidized lifestyle so many lead? More people working would be a good thing for all of us, including the government. Being productive, instead of getting government handouts, raises the quality of life for everyone, including the very poor and undereducated. It gives more opportunity to all Americans. That is the truth and we all know it.
Speaking of truth, UN Ambassador Susan Rice spent the weekend making the rounds of all the news shows to talk about “the film” that caused the massive riots in Africa and the ME. Unfortunately for Obama her version, and his, along with the State Dept does not stand up to close scrutiny. But, it would make all of them look like incompetents if they dared to tell the American public the truth. Another Obama and State Dept. failure to protect our Embassy will be swept under the rug. The wagons have circled to protect the guilty just like in the Fast and Furious debaucle. The Administration is more like a crime syndicate each and every day. The focus is not on governing but retaining and expanding executive power. Power they don’t deserve to have. From CBS
After the American media grabbed and held the pro-Obama headlines against Romney’s comments and took Obama’s “Romney shoots first and aims second” quote to iconic proportions, the rest of the world is reporting that the Obama administration knew about the planned-attack on the Benghazi, Libya Embassy where four Americans, including United States Ambassador Christopher Steven was murdered.
In truth, the current administration brought up “the film” to cover their incompetence, outed the filmmaker, and created the meme that caused further attacks on US and other Embassies. The biased media ignores the truth, but we should never.
