Mitt Romney is a Victim Too—Victim of Inarticulation

Mitt Romney has stood firm on his assertion that 47% of Americans view themselves as victims. Although he has admitted that he said it in an “inelegant” way, but how could he have said it? If you told your significant other that “you are ugly” would they take it better if you said “you are unattractive”, if you called a friend “fat” would they take it better if you said “you are obese”? What if you said you are a ”victim”? How do you make that sound better? Any euphemisms for victim come to mind? I don’t think so. There is simply no way you make this better. Well, there is one way: Romney can apologize, but we know that will not happen

    How Mitt described what he was intending to say came through very well to those that understand the English language, to those that are criticizing it, well, they are not as fortunate in their understanding of the language unfortunately.

      Jan, let’s get real even Romney admitted he could have chosen other langauage. You are entitled to your own opinion but please don’t say those that don’t agree don’t understand the language because trust me I do. So make your statement sans the insults.

        Your attention on this nonsensical matter is only helping Mitt to become the next president of the United States imo. And, yes, clearly as you even said, those that criticize this matter clearly do not understand what others do.

        Funny. I agree with Jan on this one. He was quite clear in what he said. he said he doesn’t give a flying f**k about 47% of the population, because they have the wrong attitude about government. He wants the other 53% to vote for him.

        He couldn’t be any clearer.

        Well said S.I.

        Sarcasm and irony are not your fortés, are they?

  • Thomas  On September 19, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    I’m not saying Mitt Romney lacks intelligence. I’m just saying he has bad luck when it comes to thinking. Jan I’m not saying you are disingenuous with your comment, I’m just saying you have bad luck when in comes to telling the truth.

    Hey everybody, NEWS FLASH! None of this matters. It is having virtually no impact on polling. But I must admit that it is very refreshing to witness the concern that is being expressed by Romney’s opponents about the damage that might be doing to his campaign. That’s really very nice.

    • Spanish Inquisitor  On September 19, 2012 at 5:09 pm

      None of this matters.

      Maybe to you.

      In other news, Jan probably didn’t “get” your attempt at sarcasm either.

    come on Sis…you haven’t figured it out…that’s Goerge W. Bush wearing a mask…Dumb & Dumber part 2 or 1,000…no matter, we’ll get the same results…love your posts…forget the Haters…peace

    The democrats and the MSM are LOVING this. Anything to take the spotlight off of the feckless performance of this president. Unemployment is a persistent problem for the nation, spending is out of control because the country has no budget, the deficit grew faster under Obama in four years than it did under Bush in eight, but as long as we can harp on the “47%” statement, the president can pretend nobody’s paying attention to the things that matter.

    • Spanish Inquisitor  On September 24, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Right. Keep your head in the sand there, Elogam. keep believing it’s all Obama’s fault, if it make you feel better.That won’t change the facts.

      The facts are that

      1) unemployment is a direct result of the recession which started in 2007. It’s better now than it was at its worst, about 2 months after Obama took office. It’s been steadily getting better since.

      2) Spending is not out of control. It’s actually something that will help the country, not hurt it. Austerity measures, like they are imposing in Europe, is not the answer. Money needs to flow, not be bottle-necked in Wall St and 1% bank accounts in the Caymans and Switzerland.

      3) after an initial surge due to the two wars, underfunded Medicaid part D, housing bubble bursting, and TARP, the deficit has been declining, and will continue to decline unless we go with the Republican plans for the future economy. Obama ‘s spending doesn’t come close to what was spent under Bush, and still unpaid for.

      It’s not a distraction. It’s a window into the mind of the man who wants to run this country. YOU can spin it any way you want, if it helps you rationalize your vote, but it’s devastating for him. And for the 47% of the country he will simply ignore.
