Well look whose gone and done it again. Good old boy Mitt Romney! Seem the Republican candidate is so damn cock sure of himself that he feels he doesn’t have to watch his p’s and q’s or what he says about anything! And as we’ve all found out, he says plenty, mostly off the cuff! But when all is said and done he’s got the balls to stand behind what he says even when he’s wrong!
Just take a look at his latest video blunder in which he’s heard saying that 47% of the American people are freeloaders that will blindly vote for Obama because as he put it, “there are 47% who are with him,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. And (they think) 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.” Sound’s like something Mitt would say doesn’t it? And he did!
Although Mitt’s 47% figure is pretty accurate the rest of what he had to say isn’t. Although 47% percent of Americans didn’t pay out of pocket federal taxes, according to the IRS over 30% of those Americans had federal tax taken from their weekly pay checks by way of ‘federal with-holdings and ‘payroll taxes’ that are automatically deducted from workers pay checks. Payroll taxes are used to fund two of the largest federal programs Medicare and Social Security. The remaining 17% or more paid absolutely no income or payroll taxes.
Truth be told these non taxpayers are not middle class Americans as Romney claims. Nearly 10% of those who did not pay taxes were elderly Americans. the remaining 7% had yearly incomes below $20,000. On the other end of the scale 1% of the top 1% did not pay taxes either, but the majority of those who pay zero income tax are low income families. In 2011 nearly 99% of those earning less than $10,000. paid no income tax. 78% earned less than $10,000. and were well below the poverty line. Although they pay no federal income tax, these individuals must pay sales taxes, property taxes, state income tax and excise tax on alcohol, gasoline and cigarettes. Sorry Mitt, even those so-called free-loaders who want something for nothing are anteing up, there’s no such thing as a free ride, except maybe for you and your 1%er friends.
I said it before and I’ll say it Mitt, before you start shooting your mouth off, do a little research for godsake! That’s what all those political roadies you surround yourself with are fore. Have them check the facts. Think before you speak! Oh but then you’re a real cowboy and enjoy shooting from the hip don’t you? Learn from your mistakes, learn to admit when you screw things up or speak out of turn like on the recent video, or your recent attack on Obama and that Palestinian peace thing, OMG! Face it Mitt, you don’t know jack about foreign policy! Don’t you ever get tired of explaining yourself? Then you never have the balls to apologize for anything! You stand behind everything you say even when you’re wrong! But then it’s got to be easy to stand behind what you say with your head so far up your ass!
You know as well as we do that the only chance of becoming president is with the help of the Obama haters. They want the O-Man out of office so badly that they’ll resort to anything, even voting for you! I say let’s give Obama a chance to finish what he’s started. If the GOP would get behind him we could actually make great strides in America. But that’s not what it’s all about is it Mitt. The good old boy network is alive and well in American politics.
It’s a sad state of affairs when several of our presidential elections including this one come down choosing not the best candidate, or who can accomplish the most for our country, but the lesser of two evils. You’re not presidential material Mitt, you never were. You’re not even a man with a plan. Your answers as to how you will accomplish your goals are so vague and riddled with more questions than answers. You know what I think Mr. Romney? I think the phrase “Mitt Don’t Know Shit” would look great on one of your smiley campaign posters! Face facts buddy, you’ve only got one and one thing only going for you: Your not Obama…
