On Mitt Romney’s 47 percent apology

I have a question for Mr. Romney.
The candidate for the United States presidency, in referring to his speech at a $50,000 a plate, closed-to-the press, Florida fundraiser a while ago said in effect that 47 percent of the people in the country could not be made to take responsibility for their lives and instead they pay no taxes and are content to be bums who live off the government.
Now he says, “Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you’re gonna say something that doesn’t come out right,” Romney said in an interview Wednesday night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “In this case I said something that’s just completely wrong.”
Romney added that he cares about “100 percent and that’s been demonstrated through my life and this whole campaign is about the 100 percent.”
OK, that’s nice. But since all those people who gave you money at that event believed you meant what you said and that they were the elite and nearly half of the country were low-life moochers, and in fact that is probably why they gave you money; because they believed in their wallets that you were like them.
So my question is, did you give back yet?
When you do, I might believe your pathetic attempt at redemption.



  1. Another good one Mr Hourihan!!!

  2. Did Mitt get back to you on that last question. When he does he’ll get my vote. Keep up the good word
