During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Romney told a small group of millionaires what he truly thinks of all the voters who support Obama. A donor asked how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:
"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."Romney went on: "[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."
Soulclap to Mother Jones for bringing this story to light.
When given a chance to retract his statements ... he chose not to do so.
