Ya gotta love Romney for his unlikeability. He’s got that market cornered. Writing off half the population in a single swoop: “My job is not to worry about those people” is a pretty sweeping statement. Then there’s the assumption that the 47 percent of Americans who don’t pay income tax are sponging off the government. My impression is that Mitt Romney probably doesn’t pay income tax most years, otherwise he’d release his returns to show that he does. He certainly pays a much lower rate on what he does declare than anyone I know. If there’s anyone sponging off the government it’s vulture capitalists like Romney who do nothing but financial wizardry that enables them to sneak out the door with the cash and leave the community holding the bag.
But let the man speak for himself. Maybe it’s the liberal media saying these things.
