Money Mitt isn’t backing down. He also isn’t shook up at all about the shady azz statements he made during a private fundraiser he held earlier this year.
We showed you the vid of this dirty politico talking candidly about the “47%” and today, Robney had an opportunity to save face…but of course he effed that up too!
In an interview with Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Tuesday, Mitt Romney continued to stand by his statements in the secretly recorded donor video.
“We were of course talking about a campaign and about how he’s going to get half the vote,” Romney said. “And frankly we have two very different views of America.”
“Those that are dependent on government and those that think government’s job is to redistribute — I’m not going to get them,” he said later.
While Romney allowed that some of the people who don’t pay income taxes may be his supporters — senior citizens or members of the military, for instance — he argued that his message about “the 47 percent” would resonate. “I do believe we should have enough jobs and enough take-home pay to allow people to pay taxes,” Romney said. “I think people would like to be paying taxes.”
His camp countered today after the viedo hit the internet…
“Mitt Romney wants to help all Americans struggling in the Obama economy. As the governor has made clear all year, he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people who are on food stamps, nearly one in six Americans in poverty, and the 23 million Americans who are struggling to find work,” Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said in a statement responding to the video’s release. “Mitt Romney’s plan creates 12 million new jobs in four years, grows the economy and moves Americans off of government dependency and into jobs.”
Is it just us or does it seem like Robney doesn’t want to be the future POTUS???
