Romney Tells Wealthy Donors That 47% Of Americans Are Lazy Moochers

Not surprised, but speechless nonetheless…

Think Progress

It’s only September, but Mitt Romney has already written off almost half the country’s voters.

hidden-camera recording obtained by Mother Jones captures Romney at a private fundraiser telling donors that, “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.”

Watch it:

Publicly, Romney claims that he aims to help middle-class Americans. As he told CNN’s Gloria Borger last month, “I know the very wealthy are going to do just fine whoever is elected. The middle class is the people that is the group of people that I am most concerned about, they need our – and the poor – they need our help. They need our help with good jobs. That is only going to come if we encourage this economy by keeping the burdens on small business down.”

  1. I think Romney is sincere when he says he will help the middle class. The problem is that last Friday he said middle income is $200,000 to $250,000.
