As I said in a previous post, Mitt Romney….What can I say? this guy spooks me. He’s now far surpassed Al Gore as the spookiest serious candidate to ever run for for the office of President of the United States. And that’s saying something.
Not only has he more or less said he doesn’t care about 47% of the population,
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what,” Romney says in one clip. “All right — there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing.” He went on. “My job is not to worry about those people.” (source)
He has also stated he does not believe in working (if elected) toward an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan,
During the freewheeling conversation, a donor asked Romney how the “Palestinian problem” can be solved. Romney immediately launched into a detailed reply, asserting that the Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”
“I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there’s just no way.” Romney was indicating he did not believe in the peace process and, as president, would aim to postpone significant action: “[S]o what you do is, you say, you move things along the best way you can. You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem…and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it.” (source)
While I’m not so naive as to believe other presidential candidates in the past haven’t made stupid, careless, statements, or had thoughts concerning serious matters (which they kept to themselves!), this guy, as the old saying goes, TAKES THE CAKE!
