Conservative pundit Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, ripped Mitt Romney for his 47 percent of Americans are dependent on the government and will vote for President Obama, saying his comments are “arrogant and stupid.”
It’s worth recalling that a good chunk of the 47 percent who don’t pay income taxes are Romney supporters—especially of course seniors (who might well “believe they are entitled to heath care,” a position Romney agrees with), as well as many lower-income Americans (including men and women serving in the military) who think conservative policies are better for the country even if they’re not getting a tax cut under the Romney plan. So Romney seems to have contempt not just for the Democrats who oppose him, but for tens of millions who intend to vote for him.
“It remains important for the country that Romney wins in November (unless he chooses to step down and we get the Ryan-Rubio ticket we deserve!). But that shouldn’t blind us to the fact that Romney’s comments, like those of Obama four years ago, are stupid and arrogant.
Indeed: Has there been a presidential race in modern times featuring two candidates who have done so little over their lifetimes for our country, and who have so little substance to say about the future of our country?” Source
We are seeing the REAL Mitt Romney, who has little use for anyone who isn’t fabulously wealthy. He cannot connect with the average American and no, he shouldn’t become our next president on that basis.
