Did you know yesterday was the One Year Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street? Kind of hard to believe, huh? Time certainly flies, and the reliably fickle general public pretty much stopped caring about #OWS months ago (which doesn't mean it isn't important anymore, it simply means the MSM pretends OWS no longer exists, just as it pretends Fukushima no longer exists). Back in January people still cared, and that was the month Willard Mitt Romney chided an innocent bystander for asking him a perfectly fair question about Occupy. Romney immediately pointed his finger at the poor guy and sharply criticized the entire Occupy Movement because the Occupiers "want to divide America" between the 99% and the 1%. (you can find the video on YouTube)
Why would a simple question about OWS provoke such a visceral, kneejerk response from Romney? Some new information has surfaced which answers this question. Mitt Romney himself thinks America is a profoundly divided nation. We know this because MotherJones.com released a video from a $50k a plate campaign fundraiser attended by Romney back in May. No one was allowed to record the event but thankfully someone did anyway; an unknown cameraman surreptitiously captured the candidate's entire speech. Mitt Romney was recorded expressing his true, unvarnished opinion of the American people. Romney stated that 47% of the people in this country don't pay taxes and "consider themselves to be victims" and will therefore vote for Obama no matter what. Tagg's Dad went on to say that he doesn't intend to waste any of his valuable time attempting to convince those people ("the victims") to vote for him.
The implications of this truly staggering revelation are crystal clear: Willard Mitt Romney doesn't give a decaffeinated crap about 47% of the country! 47% of the PEOPLE! He only cares about the wealthy half of the country. Specifically, the have-lots who can afford to shell out $50,000 to listen to him talk.
Romney held an emergency press conference last night to "clarify" his "off the cuff" remarks. Too late, Mitt. It's over. Nice try tho.
(Update: Yup, he lost)
