Mitt Romney on the other hand in his May 2012 fund raising speech to a group of fund raisers says, “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.”
Now both of these speeches contain disparaging remarks but there is a difference in the intent. President Obama was encouraging volunteers to not ignore anyone based upon their beliefs and thoughts. Mr. Romney, on the other hand, seems to make his speeches according to whatever crowd he happens to be addressing. That in itself is not a problem. The problem – MITT ROMNEY IS NOT THE MAN TO LEAD AMERICA AT THIS TIME. He simply does not get what the average American family needs to survive because he has never had to live the life that middle class and poor people live. In his book if you are not privileged YOU JUST DON’T MATTER!!!!! Therefore when he says “My job is not to worry about those people” to the people funding his campaign HE ACTUALLY MEANS JUST THAT!!!!! People, if you fail to exercise your right to vote; if you elect to by-pass that voting booth in November; if you allow yourself to be intimidated into not casting your vote; this man may actually be the next president of the United States of America. So, call your neighbor; beg someone for a ride to the poll; but do whatever you have to do to get there. You must make that important choice and cast your vote.
