If only our nation were not in such a seriously dangerous position at the hands of a communist government takeover, this might be funny to watch. It would almost be humorous to see how desperate Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), his administration, campaign and their pathetic media lackeys are to cling to power. We could laugh at their stupendous lies and feigned outrage when the truth is told about their detestable, lawless actions against the United States, our Constitution and our God-given freedoms.

Sadly, this is not funny at all.

This new old video of Mitt Romney that was filmed at a private dinner with his supporters several months ago has given Democrats, and even some so-called "Republican" mouthpieces, what they believe is fodder to hurt Romney. I read a transcript of the speech, minus the missing portion, and I can see that this reaction by members of the Left just shows their desperation.

While I am not at all a fan of Mitt Romney, because he has a clear track record of liberal social policies that I will not stomach — support for homosexual "marriage," socialized medicine, and his horrible statement that he will keep some parts of Obamacare, to name a few — I found his speech to be refreshingly correct. If you have not read it, I recommend that you read the transcript linked above.

Just looking at a couple of parts over which the media and Obama campaign had an accident in their pants, I find it pitiful that they are trying to make hay over Romney statements that are just common-sense truth.

A member of the audience asked Romney,

Over the past three years, all everybody's been told is, don't worry, we'll take care of it. How are you going to do it, with two months before the election, to convince everybody you've got to take care of yourself?

Romney's now-famous reply was,

Well, there are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that 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 government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.

I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49 ... I mean, he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax; 47 percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect.

He'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center, that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon, in some cases, emotion, whether they like the guy or not, what he looks like.


There is nothing wrong in what he said. Of the 47 percent who pay no income taxes, many of them are indeed dependent on taxpayer money handouts from the government — that is not a lie. Many of them do believe they are "victims," because they drink the Democrat kool-aid of envy and entitlement. The fact is that there are many people in our nation who are lazy pigs. These people will vote Democrat, period.

Romney is correct that his job is not to worry about the entitlement-mentality pigs. They are lost to conservatism (not that pure conservatism is what Romney offers), and they will never vote for Romney no matter what he says.

Another part of Romney's speech that sent the Left into spastic fits was when he answered the question of what he would do about the so-called "Palestinian" problem,

I'm torn by two perspectives in this regard. One is the one which I've had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish. Now why do I say that?

He then goes on to make several points about logistical problems that would occur with the creation of a Palestinian state, all of which are very valid concerns. He also stated that pressuring Israel to give up even more of its land is the wrong thing to do.

What the Left freaked out on was his point that the "Palestinians" have no interest in peace. That's wrong how, exactly?

The "Palestinians" do not have any interest in peace with Israel, any more than the rabid Muslim nations surrounding Israel do. One of the big goals of the followers of the hell-born ideology of Islam is to wipe Israel off the map (because Satan hates Israel), although the Lord is not going to let that happen (as He promises in the Bible). How many hundreds or thousands of rockets have the "Palestinians" fired into Israel? How many Israeli citizens have the "Palestinians" murdered? Meanwhile, Israel continues to bend over backward, giving aid and money to these degenerate, "Palestinian" ingrates.

The fake outrage of the Left at these comments by Mitt Romney is just plain stupid — or naïve, if we want to be kind to those who do not understand the true nature of Islam and its bloodthirsty campaign of world domination. Mitt Romney's comments on the "Palestinians" are spot-on, and they show him to be very knowledgeable about the area and the situation.

I'm glad these people who were trying to hurt Romney released this video of him (even though it was edited), because his statements are correct, and the shrill reaction to the video by the Obama campaign and Obama's media says much more about their desperation than it does about Mitt Romney.
