By now you’ve all heard the one about Mitt Romney and his disgust for half the American people. He is so disgusted with this group, that he has already wrote them off as Obama voters, fully dependent on the government and too lazy to take care of themselves. Of course I’m just paraphrasing what Romney said at his private fundraiser. His exact words however, does not take away from the interpretation given above.
Here’s what Romney said;
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.”
As unbelievable a statement as that is, there’s more. Word on the street is that Romney’s infamous statement about 47% of Americans was made at a fundraiser… hosted at the estate… of a Sex Party-throwing Hedge Fund Manager.
According to the New York Post, Leder throws a pretty mean party.
His “wild end-of-summer bash was the talk of the Hamptons this year,” the Post reported last December. “At the Bridgehampton home that Leder rented for a whopping $500,000 a month, guests cavorted nude in a pool and performed sex acts, while scantily clad Russian women danced on platforms. Dancers at the party also twirled flaming torches to booming beats.”
Come to think about it, we never really saw what was going on from the waist down while Romney was making his speech.
