The media, the Obama regime, the Internet and the chattering classes are all abuzz today because a video of Mitt Romney from May of this year has surfaced and in it he is discussing politics. He states that 47% of people do not pay taxes, believe they are victims and are entitled to free everything. He said his job is not to worry about them because he can’t convince them to take responsibility. It is obvious that he meant politically he can’t worry about them because he won’t get their votes:
“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. That that’s an entitlement. And 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…. [M]y job is is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
Romney told the truth, well almost. He was a little low in his assessment of the number of people who do not pay taxes but he is right on target when he discusses that these folks (and it is a broad term since not all of them believe this) believe they are victims and are entitled. Barack Obama and his Democrats have beat victim mentality into the heads of many of these folks. They are the downtrodden because of the rich. They are not making it because of the Republicans and the big oil companies. They don’t have jobs because of the corporations. The Obama regime plays class warfare and has been quite successful in making a lot of people believe that they are victims and that they “deserve” free everything.
Obama wants this because he wants more and more people dependent on government. If the Democrats can get more than 50% of the population dependent on government and believing they are victims who are entitled to free stuff then they will have a permanent Democrat voting bloc.
This was LBJ’s intent with the Great Society (and was particularly aimed at blacks) and it is the intent of Obama. When more and more people realize they can vote for people who will give them free stuff they will do so and willingly become slaves to government. They will give up their freedom and relinquish their responsibility so they can be taken care of.
Why would Obama want this? Besides the obvious desire to get more Democrat votes it will also help with his plan to fundamentally transform America. Obama wants to change this country into a Socialist Mecca and he needs more and more people on the dole in order to do it. In order to get his Mecca he needs to end the Republic and that is what he wants to do. Romney’s quote discussed nearly half the people on the dole and when that 50% + 1 level is reached the Republic will spiral down. Romney is not the first to recognize it and his observation was not the most eloquent. This quote is attributed to Benjamin Franklin:
When people realize they can vote themselves money from the public treasury, it will herald the end of the republic”
This quote is spot on and is coming to fruition. There is no doubt that far too many Americans (and some who are not American and not here legally) believe that they are owed and that the government will take care of them. Who can forget the moocher Obama supporter who proudly boasted:
I won’t have to worry ’bout putting gas in my car, I won’t have to worry ’bout payin’ my mortgage. You know, if I help Obama, he’s gonna help me.
So tell me, how is Romney’s assessment that there are people who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing… and will not vote for him wrong?
Romney needs to get out in front of this and make sure people know his idea is to make sure the 47% earn more and contribute to society rather than living off it. His job is to tell them that his policies will make sure they are not subservient to the government. He needs to let people know he can free them from bondage to government.
Romney wants to free them, not enslave them. With a record number of people dependent on government Romney has his work cut out for him. Let’s face it, these folks are indeed victims but they are victims of a ruthless progressive orthodoxy that enslaves them and takes away their will to be independent.
Interestingly, it looks like Jimmy Carter’s grandson had something to do with releasing the video.
Romney is correct and the truth will always set you free.
Never surrender, never submit.

The news began to leak out last last evening and early this morning it was confirmed that Mitt Romney had selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate in the upcoming save America election. Ryan has some baggage with regard to his conservative credentials but he is fairly solid and brings a lot to the table. Despite a few issues he will bring a lot of conservatives back into the tent.
Ryan and Obama are not quite pals and it is probably still fresh in Obama’s mind that Ryan eviscerated him during the discussion over Obamacare.
Ryan has worked up a budget and it contains some tough cuts to popular programs but those cuts are needed. Liberals portray it as an end to Medicare and Social Security but that is a stretch. In fact, coming from Democrats you know it is a lie.
I think Ryan will do a fine job. He has a sound business mind and a great grasp of economics not to mention he has far more business and government experience than Obama had when the country immaculated him. I know Ryan is not running against Obama but the claim from the left in 2008 (and some on the right) was that Palin did not have the experience to step in should McCain not be able to complete his term (which it looks like he would have). Palin had more experience than Obama so I expect to see the ads claiming Ryan is not ready to step in. In fact, there is already one article making that claim. It is a bunch of bunk (where was this person when Obama was running) so I expect more to come.
The Twitter world was ablaze with condemnation from the left and there were wishes that Ryan would die young like his father and grandfather (even if that happened he would have been out of office for 5 years assuming two terms). Kos pointed out that Ryan is white. I wonder why it is that the people who claim they are the champions of minorities and non racist are always the first to notice color.
Ryan is white, OK. So is Joe Biden but no one screamed about that. So was Al Gore but then again Bill Clinton was our first black president so I guess that was OK.
I guess Kos wanted people to think of Republicans as the party of the white guy but that falls short. The left is full of racists who will play the color game at every opportunity. Even black folks on the left play it. Allen West was portrayed in an ad with every stereotype of a black man you could think of and the NAACP reviewed it and claimed it was not racist. If that had been a conservative ad with Obama being stereotyped the NAACP would have lost its mind.
But I digress.
Democrats are playing games and attacking Ryan but they would be wise to worry. He is no pushover and I think he will wipe the floor with Biden when they debate.
The field is now set for the election and this will be brutal. Obama promised that he would not use attack ads and that he was a different kind of politician. We know that is a lie and we know he will use Chicago thuggery and do everything he can to win.
Obama needs four more years to complete his dismantling of the country. He needs more time to see the dreams of his real father fulfilled. He needs time to help George Soros destroy this great nation. Obama, as he said to the Russians, will have more flexibility if he gets a second term. He will finish the destruction that he started in 2009.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are determined to keep that from happening. The left is vile and the attacks will be vicious but that will not stop us from achieving victory.
It is November or never for America and Romney and Ryan know that as do all sane people.
We will stop Obama and the Socialists from ruining this nation.
Energy is on our side, now we need to be vigilant because the Dems are going to cheat.
Not on my watch people, not on my watch.
Never surrender, never submit.

Harry Reid told a whopper of a lie last week when he claimed that he received a call saying that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes for the past decade or so. It just so happens that the Obama campaign can’t find any dirt on Romney like it has in all of Obama’s other campaigns so it is inventing some. The Democrats want to get hold of Romney’s complicated tax returns and pour through them to find some obscure thing most folks don’t understand and then portray it as Romney avoiding taxes.
Romney is having none of it and he shouldn’t. If Romney had not paid taxes in the last decade the IRS would have gone after him. You can also bet that Reid is lying because if Romney had not paid taxes the Obama White House would have leaked his tax returns.
The cretin Reid took to the Senate floor to say that Romney had not paid taxes. Reid knows that the only way to prove he is wrong is for Romney to release the returns. This is the plan. The ends justify the means and the end for Democrats is to get those returns so they can invent some issue with them.
Reid is an idiot and should be removed from office. Once Romney wins the presidency he should release his returns, show he paid taxes and sue Reid for defamation.
How can Harry Reid even question Romney? Reid is the cretin who was involved with the mob in regards to gaming in Nevada. Reid is the one who made illegal land deals and became quite wealthy doing so. And Reid has ensured that his family was taken care of by using his position.
The latest example is Harry Reid pushing for green energy from a China firm that he played a part in getting into Nevada. Why did Reid do this? Because his son represents the Chinese company.
Harry Reid is using his position to help his son and this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Reid’s ethical challenges. Reid lacks integrity and is a criminal, period. Hey Harry, you have been hit in the head too many times and your brain has turned to mush.
It is amazing to me that Obama and his Democrats want Romney to release tax returns when Obama’s vital records are locked up tighter than a gnat’s behind.
Some folks are calling Harry Reid a liar. That is absolutely true. He did not receive some mysterious call and he did not get some inside information about Romney. Reid made it all up.
In addition to being a liar Reid is a criminal who is using his office to enrich himself and his family. His ties to the criminals in organized labor ensured his reelection and his ties to shady people made him very rich.
If anyone in the Senate has testicular fortitude they would challenge Reid and demand an investigation into the lie he perpetrated while speaking to that body.
Then again, the best rebuke of Reid would be to relegate him to minority status in the Senate.
Never surrender, never submit.

Josephina Victoria Occhiuto, better known as Joy Behar, a nearly 70 year old harpy who has had several failed TV talk shows (and is engaging in a soon to be failed talk show on Al Gore’s network), is an unhappy progressive who wishes ill on those with whom she disagrees. She was interviewed by Mediaite recently and she had some very disturbing things to say.
Behar was asked what she would ask Mitt Romney (I assume the question was hypothetical should she be able to interview him on her soon to fail show) and she basically said she would ask about his flip flopping. She also indicated that she would ask if he intended to endorse the Paul Ryan budget which Behar said would be bad.
Keep in mind, Ryan and Republicans are the only people working on budgets as the Democrat controlled Senate has failed to deliver a budget for about 1100 days.
In any event, the progressive Behar got around to saying Romney was making fun of Barack Obama for wanting to hire more firemen, policemen and teachers. The remark refers to Romney asking if Obama got the message from Wisconsin that people wanted less government. That led Behar to claim the statement was idiotic.
Let’s clear a few things up. Except for federal police officers and firefighters (and teachers who teach for the federal government) all these occupations are hired at the local level. These public servants are hired at the state level or lower (county, city, etc) so the federal government is not involved in that process. The only thing that the feds have done is infuse federal taxpayer dollars into states so they could pay for the out of control benefits to these union employees and the retirees of those unions.
The whole issue is designed to play on emotions. States and localities do not cut essential services like police and fire first. If they cut at all they make the cuts in all kinds of other places first because these entities represent large blocks of union (read Democrat) voters. This is the main reason Democrats want to send them money.
Personally, I think if a jurisdiction can’t run its budget correctly then it needs new leadership and it needs to find ways to live within its means regardless of what has to be CUT.
Behar was not done though. She demonstrated the great civility of the left by proclaiming that she would like to see Romney’s house burn down. Then she disparaged his religion by asking who he would call, the Mormon fire patrol.
Just imagine if a conservative had asked about a Jewish politician if he was going to call the Jew fire patrol. Imagine if that same conservative had asked about a Muslim politician if he was going to call the Muslim fire patrol…
I think we all know where that would go.
Then again it is not conservatives who are playing class warfare and dividing Americans by wealth, sex and religion.
That comes from the bigots on the left.
Behar is a tired old lady who runs her mouth without the assistance of brain cells that have long since been depleted by a lack of oxygen because of where she keeps her head. She does not engage in intelligent conversation and she rarely makes sense because she defends things that are indefensible, chiefly progressivism. It is a shame because she is well educated. The shame is that she wasted the education on lunacy.
She will fail once again as a talk show host but I doubt that will keep her from running her mouth.
One thing I think she could be successful at is using her picture to cure that erection that lasts for four hours associated with some erectile dysfunction drugs.
Never surrender, never submit.

NBC and Tom Brokaw have expressed displeasure with Mitt Romney for using footage from the 1990s, featuring Brokaw, in ads attacking Newt Gingrich. I read comments posted and people say NBC is imposing on the right to free speech. People are upset that Brokaw and NBC would request Romney to cease and desist.
The most important thing about this is that it is not a free speech issue.
However, Barack Obama used Brokaw in an ad when he was running in 2008 and NBC sent him a cease and desist order as well. In this particular case Brokaw is acting no differently toward the Republican than he did the Democrat. It is easy to see how folks would not see this since the MSM is overwhelmingly liberal and has protected Democrats (particularly Obama) from day one.
What should bother people is Brokaw’s stated reason for not wanting Romney using the clip:
I am extremely uncomfortable with the extended use of my personal image in this political ad. I do no want my role as a journalist compromised for political gain by any campaign. Politico
Who in their right mind thinks of Brokaw as a journalist? That would require objective reporting and proper vetting of political candidates. It would require an allegiance to the public and upholding the tradition of the media being a watchdog for the people of this country.
Brokaw is another member of the media wing of the Democrat party and he has failed to act as a journalist.
A commentator, sure, but in no way a journalist…
Never surrender, never submit.
