There is much to do about nothing:
The Left is claiming that Romney “disdains” 1/2 of America, hah.
There is actually no big deal here… Its conservative thinking to disdain government dependence.
We believe that people should be independent from government so that they can become strong/healthy economically and not be a burden on taxes.
He says he cannot worry about them, because usually the people so dependent on govt (that they do not have to do income tax) are usually firm democrats.
Republicans believe (and it makes sense) that Dems purposely expand govt welfare so that they remain dependent on govt., and become firm democratic voters!
Its a feed me and I reward you” kind of thing - (why bite the hand that feeds).
He isn’t saying he doesn’t worry/care about them in general… but that they are so firmly in the democrats grasp that its pointless to try and convert them (hence he talks about winning the independents).
Don’t be swayed by the media.
Watch the video [click link in title] without reading the paragraphs. There really isn’t anything Romney says wrong. In fact, i think those vids are beneficial as they show his honesty! But then read the paragraphs and look at the attempts to twist his words. Its crazy, lol. Don’t be swayed, look for yourself.
