    Romney has pretty much been saying the same things his entire campaign, but this is as clear and as plain as things will probably ever come out of his mouth up until November.

    Romney stands by comments in video but says they were ‘not elegantly stated’

    (Reuters/Jim Young)

    COSTA MESA, Calif.—Mitt Romney stood by his comments captured on a hidden camera at a closed-door fundraiser earlier this year in which he called supporters of President Barack Obama "victims" and said they are reliant on government handouts.
    In a hastily arranged news conference Monday night, he called his words "off the cuff" and "not elegantly stated," but given several opportunities to back off the comments, he did not.
    Romney said he was merely talking about the "political process of drawing people into my own campaign." He described the incident as a "snippet of a question and answer session" and called on the full video to be released to show the question and his response in its full context.
    Asked if he was worried that he had offended the 47 percent of people he mentioned in the statement, Romney did not back off his remarks.

    James Carter IV, Jimmy Carter's Grandson, Arranged Mitt Romney Video Release

    WASHINGTON -- Midway through a routine Internet search, James Carter IV stumbled upon a video that just didn't seem right.
    The grandson of former President Jimmy Carter and a self-fashioned Democratic opposition researcher, the younger Carter had watched countless hours of footage of Republican Mitt Romney and made it a habit to search YouTube every few days for keywords like "Romney" and "Republicans."

    Most of the states that swing conservative take the most money from the federal government as well. I remember there being a thread about cognitive disonnance I think somewhere.

    The video of Romney despising 47 percent of America can be viewed on YouTube:



    We saw these sort of freudian slips pop out of Romney's mouth throughout the debates between Republican POTUS candidates. Even his VP choice, Paul Ryan, recently admitted Romney was 'obviously inarticulate':



    By the way, it is a mistake to think Romney was singling out blacks. Blacks only make up about 13% of America. Which means that when he said 47 %, most of the people he was talking about were not black people:



    Note how much more articulate Obama's response is compared to Romney's gaff. This should be all over all the mainstream media outlets. But, it is not, which is a significant rebuttal to the notion that the media is dominated by liberals. Our handlers WANT Americans to be split more or less half and half because that keeps us from focusing on our real enemies --- the small cabal of scoundrels who control the lives of everybody else via the media, banks, and religion.

    In a sane nation, this would be the end of Romney's candidacy. But, America is not a sane nation and I have seriously doubts about the sanity of Americans in general.

    If Americans, generally, were sane, neither Romney or Obama would be sitting in the Oval Office this time next year. Instead, as was the case in 2008, most blacks will again vote for the black guy running for POTUS and most whites will again vote for the white guy.
