So, what does class warfare from a classless, aristocratic, snob look like?
“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 not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives…. The president has been a disappointment. He told you he’d keep unemployment below 8 percent. Hasn’t been below eight percent since. Fifty percent of kids coming out of school can’t get a job. Fifty percent.”
— Mitt Romney, speaking at a private, millionaires only, fundraiser on May 17
These obnoxious authoritarian Republicans really do believe their own swill, don't they? No wonder they've declared war on fact checkers. This elitist, scornful snit is full of lies, of course. And it is insulting to almost half the country.
He told you he’d keep unemployment below 8 percent.
No. Obama never said that. Just like he never said, "You didn't build your business".
I'd call that dangerous abundunce of pompous arrogance, befitting a prep school bully who wants the power of the presidency, a clear warning for us all.
Why on Earth would a country elect a man who clearly has such mean-spirited contempt, if not outright hatred, for the less affluent half of the country?
What kind of jerk would insult and demean so many Americans?
A first-class authoritarian asshole.
The larger tragedy is the number of low-class authoritarain assholes who think the same way.
And they want to "take back America".
God help us.
