In this era you should expect a camera or two at any event. But I have listened to what Romney said about the 47% and I have to tell you the media (lets just call them the left) has it dead wrong. That sadly is to be expected as they sleep with President Obama more than Monica Lewinsky shared a cigar with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office.
Romney in his discussion with potential donors was laying out a political strategy and what he said from my take was that in terms of votes you have to forget the 47% and write them off as Obama votes. I don’t know about you folks but I call this a worst case scenario. It appears to me that Mitt understood the potential to lose at least 47% of the vote based solely on Obama’s charisma and ability to lie to the masses about what he is doing. So politically you write off those 47% and focus on the rest of the country. Polls show this to be a close race and Romney is not stupid, he knows he needs to move that middle ground.
What he was laying out was a political strategy on winning an election. Not an indictment of that 47%. Many of whom are unwitting victims of the policies of Barack Obama. Food Stamp payments are up, and while unemployment dropped it is mostly due to people giving up looking for jobs. Apathy now rules the land and any candidate who does not acknowledge that is doomed.
The left will spin these comments the best they can because they can’t really tell you the truth about the record of Barack Obama, but the numbers don’t lie. Highest Gas prices Ever! Including a rise in price after labor day, which has historically never happened. Unemployment above 8 percent for the longest time in modern history. The nationalization of a car company and the sale of another to a foreign entity. And government control of both the healthcare and credit system.
Romney has a lot to talk about but who can he talk to? He stated the worst case scenario hoping for the best. How about you? My worst case scenario is 4 more years of Barack Obama with a Senate controlled by Harry Reid. Even if Romney gets elected without the Senate nothing will get done. SO forget the chatter from the left. Think about this.
Take back the country! Ignore the distractions!
