Now comes this commercial from an AFSCME commie featuring a taxpayer paid employee looking mournfully into a camera, complaining that his body will be breaking down by the time he's 55 years old from doing the tremendous work he does.
This taxpayer paid employee visits neighborhoods on a regular basis, including Mitt Romney's, and on some occasions residents of the neighborhood come out to greet him, hand him cool drinks, congratulate him on the job he's doing.
But not Mitt Romney.
Sad glassy brown eyes that may weep after the camera clicks off, the taxpayer paid employee complains that Mitt Romney doesn't "care" about him or the fact that his back will probably give out lifting garbage for the likes of Mitt Romney.
It appears from this salary schedule that, at 33, Mr. Hayes may make anywhere from $60,000 up to pick up trash in San Diego. Who knows what his job benefits are. Surely if his "back gives out," there'll be a government program available so he can sit around and recover.
Ads like this have been running continuously in Ohio. The frequent complaint is that Mitt Romney doesn't "care" about the little guys, based on some secretly taped meeting Romney held with donors. The whole "caring" thing is a predominant Democrat thing.
That a cheapskate, narcissistic candidate like Obama who has given to charitable causes only when he was in campaign mode could even compare himself to the likes of Mitt Romney is appalling. Romney may not have been my favorite candidate during winnowing season, but his record (though he does not boast of it) of charitable giving, concern about others and magnanimity are unquestioned.
So naturally that's what the Obama campaign seeks to destroy in the public eye.
The Democrats have been taking great pleasure in playing Romney's words out of context, claiming he doesn't "care" about 47% of the people.
Yet what Romney said is not what the commies are saying he said. Here's the transcript of what he said, which is quite different than the excerpted clip we hear taken out of context.
“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.
“And I mean the President starts off with 49, 49…he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. 47% of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect.
“So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that’s what they sell every 4 years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
“What I have to do is convince the 5% to 10% that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or another depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not.”Romney says that as a candidate it isn't his "job to worry" about trying to convince those who are hard core dependent on the government Obamabots to vote for him.
Amazing how that's morphed into "Romney doesn't care about the people," isn't it.
This is more "war on women" illogic being foisted off on the mentally weak.
As far as old Richard goes...
Just shut up and do your job without whining.
You're making me sick.
