The Truth at Last
America, the truth is out at last; Mitt Romney hates you.
There are approximately 311,591,917 citizens in America.
146,448,201 of them are, in Romney's words, 'dependent' 'victims' '...who pay no income tax'. In case you think his point was just not 'elegantly stated', he twists the knife further by saying, "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." (See the secretly-recorded video here.)
A 'cling to their guns and religion' moment? Hardly. While that line may be the dumbest thing Obama ever said, the full context reveals a genuine empathy for a group of neglected people that is marred by condescension and inept wording. But the full context of this speech, Romney standing in front of his fellow 1%'ers saying that half of America are welfare bums who can't and won't take care of themselves makes it the most stomach-turning moment of this campaign bar none.
You, the regular American, can pretend that he couldn't possibly be talking about you.
But, in fact, the odds are good that it is you he's just damned.
In the end, however, it is for the best that Mr. Romney's hateful divisiveness has been stripped bare for everyone, Americans and those of us in the rest of the world, to see.
