Mark Trahant: Mitt Romney blaming Americans for America

"In a candid moment, when he thought no one was watching, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney dismissed nearly half of America as government freeloaders who will never vote for him anyway.

Romney’s own words tell the story:

“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.”

It gets worse."
