Mitt Romney on the 47%

Here’s a fun clip of Mitt Romney sharing his thoughts about Obama voters at a private fundraiser earlier this year. He says, 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…My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

I'm not at all surprised by his comments, but I am curious to see if/how he responds to this video. My guess is he'll call it a petty distraction from "serious, economic issues."
