Mitt Romney Is Not Here For 47% of You

Mitt(ens) Romney aspires to be at the helm of the highest U.S. government office. However, I'm not sure how he can reconcile being the President of the United States with his disdain for the working-class and the poor and his perpetuation of class-division. Anything less than wealthy is nothing more than sheer, unadulterated laziness as far as he and his ilk are concerned. 

Proving just how out-of-touch and misinformed he is, Romney was secretly recorded making several incendiary statements about Obama supporters while in the company of people of his fellow millionaires, during a [$50,000 a plate] fundraiser at the home of private-equity manager [and sex-party aficianado] Marc Leder, on May 17. One of the most notable comments he spewed...
"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.”
