the ups and downs of life

Political Video

I have been offended by Mitt Romney’s statements as of late. He has dismissed 47% of the American public in a private fundraising dinner. (see the video)  Then when he was called out on it he said he spoke inelegantly (here he is back-pedaling). No, he spoke candidly and said what he really thought. Then when he realized that wasn’t a popular stance he back-pedaled. No apology. No. He meant what he said. He just didn’t mean for the whole world to hear it.

A president is supposed to look out for the good of 100% of the country. Even if you aren’t focusing on them all the time, you don’t say that in a public forum. That is denigrating and offensive.You don’t say things such as these people view themselves as victims and you can’t worry about them. I wonder if Mr. Romney has ever taken the time to speak to these people? Does he know any of their situations? Before you make assumptions about people, you need to learn about them. Don’t just assume that you know everything about them and write them off. Maybe that is part of the problem right there! Society wrote them off for so long and they feel they are worthless and they can’t do differently or don’t know how.Ever think of that? Maybe you should focus on empowering them rather than continually knocking them down. If the person who wants to be the leader of their country thinks they’re worthless, then what does everyone else think?

Know what I think about you, Mr. Romney? I think you’re an arrogant, over-priveleged, out-of-touch elitist who should take time and sit and talk with the people you disdain so much. Find out what got them in the positions they’re in. Quit being such a judgmental ass. I am appalled at your comments and outlook. I pray to God that you are not elected. You truly scare the hell out of me.
