Mother Jones has obtained a video in which Mitt Romney tells wealthy donors that 47% of the country depends on the government, believes they are victims–and are therefore firmly in President Obama's corner. Listen as Romney disparages almost half the country that he wants to lead as freeloaders:
ROMNEY: There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent 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.
