Romney Shrugged (an involuntary apology)


Was he lying then?

Or is he lying now?

In May, when Mitt Romney said to a roomful of his wealthiest donors that 47% of Americans saw themselves as “victims” and, as President, his job was “not to worry about those people” – was he lying to his donors then in order to get their money?

Or is he lying to us now in order to get our vote?

Why did it take Mitt Romney nearly 3 weeks after the video became public to apologize?  Was it because his poll numbers plunged precipitously as a result of his comments?  Was it because other Republicans were distancing themselves from him in order to save their own campaigns?

What does that 3-week delay say about Mitt Romney’s character?

Like an unscrupulous salesman, Romney seems to tell us whatever he thinks we want to hear, in order to seal the deal.

Which do you think is the real Mitt Romney?
Are you willing to risk America's future that you are right?
