Mitt Romney Attempts To Explain Himself After Insulting 47% Of Americans

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikBarack Obama

Mitt Romney wasn't expecting any cameras during a private fundraiser dinner in Boca Raton, Florida on May 17, so he was finally able to be honest with supporters about his views and ideas for the United States of America.

Unfortunately for the Republican Presidential candidate, there WAS a camera there and it captured footage of him insulting a little less than HALF of the population.

Not only did he generalize 47% of Americans voting for Barack Obama as a bunch of government freeloaders who don't pay income taxes because they have no motivation to succeed in life, but expressed fears of the Hispanic population ruining the nation if they support the current president!

He's been hitting the campaign trail to talk up his plans for reviving the economy and lowering unemployment rates, but has yet to give any pertinent details as to HOW he'll do so. Behind closed doors, however, Romney wasn't afraid to give an honest answer.

Even though he "can never predict what the markets will do," he states they "will be happy" if he gets elected and he'll boost the economy "without actually doing anything."

That sounds pretty easy! Why hasn't Obama considered this plan? Ha!

Since half of the country was a little put off by how he really feels about them, Romney tried to explain himself at a press conference last night (above). Before U watch that though, c-c-check out the remarks that are causing the backlash … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    The numbers support Romney's statements, ass clown. But you're a dumb-shit liberal who does as little as he can to make a living profiting from the pain and embarrassments of other people. So I hardly think YOU are in a position to judge Romney. HE is a thinker. YOU can't even write original material for your shitty little sites without multiple mistakes (and you don't let little things like FACTS bother you). So stick it up your ass, you retarded homo.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Your name calling and insults do nothing but discredit your claims. I suggest you go to a non-partisan website and actually fact check the propaganda you are spewing on this website. Why are you even reading this anyway? Obviously, this is not the website for you.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Why must you spew so much hate? Why even bother coming on this site if you dislike Perez so much? This is a gossip site & all gossip sites leech off of each other. No one said you had to be a profound thinker to run a gossip site.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me

    We really should have let you idiots secede In 1861. It would have saved us a lot of headaches explaining simple concepts today.

    mitt Romney is successful. You republican'ts seem to think this is because he is a "self-made man." I'm pretty sure I'd have a leg up if my father was the governor, paid for me to attend Harvard business AND Harvard Law and gave me the cash to start up a company.

    You seem to think that this experience will make him a solid candidate.

    He's a wishy washy fence sitter who panders to ignorant racists like you. If elected, he will (at best) do nothing or (at worst) screw us up as bad as GWB did (remember him? He created all of the problems Obama responded to, like when Obama saved the US auto injury)

    Is there any doubt that a Romney administration would favor the rich and increase the income gap in our country? Mitt is a pariah in Mormon Clothing and will stop at nothing to expand an empire of greed for the rich in this country by expanding tax cuts for the 1% of the wealthiest Americans. He’s out to gut the Middle Class for every red cent he can get. Will his sacred Mormon underwear grant him the protection and money to buy this election? See for yourself as Mitt dons his tighty-whities sent down from the Good Lord Himself at

    Yeah and what is Obama doing?? Filling American's heads with a load of BS. All Obama's ideas to fix America's economy are the exact same ideas he had four years ago. And four years later we're worse off then we were before Obama became president. So just explain to me why ANYONE in their right minds would ever vote for him again.

  9. 9

    He's 100 percent right. Are you fucking kidding me? He is the entitlement president. Hispanics and Blacks vote for him almost exclusively. Every welfare receipient loves him. He is correct, but you liberal dooshbags just can stand it if you are not always correct.

    Re: mel – I actually have fact checked, and am fully aware. The only problem with Romney's statement is it didn't kiss the ass of the entitled left. And do be so fast to tell people that don't liek Perez to go away, we are about 90 percent of his web traffic. And before you say something else stupid, i type fast, and don't care to correct my spelling or punctuation, as this is a blog, so no need to point out how dumb I am. I'm an idiot allright, just not because of my spelling, grammer, and punctuation.

    Re: James

    So because Mitt's father was a good parent and paid for him to go to school and helped him start a business this makes him not qualified to be president?

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – I totally agree with you YYMB. Perez is the laziest of lazy thinkers. I'm gay yet a Republican but these gay sheeple such as Perez always seem to put forward gayness first and not think about the country as a whole. Perez as a political thinker holds about as a much water as Perez commenting on weekend NFL scores.

  14. imJustSaying says – reply to this


    What's so wrong with encouraging people to work. Most people on welfare really have no motivation to work because they know they are being taken care of us. Us being the hardworking people of America who actually have something to contribute. A good percentage of America is poor because it chooses to be. Why not educate them on how to multiply their money so they too can provide for themselvs.

  15. I'm Voting for Romney says – reply to this


    Perez: news flash, welcome to the world of politics. They will NEVER tell you HOW they will accomplish things. Obama NEVER explained HOW he was going to go about "changing" America.

    Re: Brandt Hardin – You can't buy your way into an Ivy and graduate school… And it's also racist against Romney if you vote for Obama because he's black, and to be honest, he's only half black and his white mother raised him. This whole healthcare bill is going to cost my family at least $12,500 plus the cost of the healthcare that we already have. The government shouldn't be forcing people to do what they don't want or need to do. Also, people are entitled to their own opinions. Being conservative works for us in the South so we would like to keep it that way before you liberals turn everything upside down. Romney should not have said what he did but it happened. Biden has said some pretty stupid things as well and he took it one step further by using his potty mouth to get his point across. By the way, I am a conservative half-Jamaican, half Dominican American.

    Re: mel – Please please, get your facts straight. That 47% that he was spewing was actually wrong, it was a total of other numbers. Someone lied to mitt, and he believed it, now you believe it. Don't believe everything you hear on tv. But believe this, YOU SUCK!

    Re: mel – you are probably a rich a**, racist conservative christian who would rather create a further divide between the classes because you're a greedy a**hole and don't want to be taxed.

    Anyone is better than Obama. Our country is in serious trouble if he is elected again. I, however, aDORE Ryan. (VP candidate)

    Forgive me for not wanting to support lazy, capable Americans. Especially those non-Americans. If you don't like what our four fathers founded this great country on, leave. Leave now and please don't ever look back.

    Our country is in trouble. There is no more freedom of speech and freedom to be yourself. I am a hard working, Christian, middle (+) class citizen, who cannot express my feelings because it could make someone else feel bad. I believe in each to their own; if you're gay and want to marry, then marry. If you want to sit on your behind all day and not work, you get nothing in return. Those out there who work several jobs to keep their families fed deserve help. Not the lazy and illegal immigrants.

    I will with out a doubt vote for Romney. Im scared what will happen to this country if I don't.

    Romney is exactly right… There are so many people out there using the system it's a joke. Yes, there should be a safety net, but not one 100 miles long that let's you stay in that system for years on end. Perez, you are so uneducated it's funny but sad…

  26. G says – reply to this


    Funny how the republican states in the U.S are the people most likely to be on welfare while the liberal states are the least likely. So, in fact his statement is not true and he just insulted his own republican base.

    Re: James – You are wacked!! Saved the auto! Really?? Anybody could have thrown millions or billions and would have done the same thing! Problem! He didnt hire NO one to watch where the money was going and to who. Money given to buy to cars! Who got rich off of that one? CHINA!! We borrowed the money and bought 90% of there cars! Not only did we borrow from them and now we are paying the interest too!!
    More people on food stamps and do see that # dropping? Make understand NO voter ID. WHY?? About him doing nothing during the Wallstreet scums who had NO idea why they were there!! Obuma fueled that one on! Flip flops on the gays, illegals, extends unemployment, these are his voters!!!!!!!!!

  28. 28

    This is the President you defend and if you defend this you are not a true American! This is NOT American but what Obuma lives with! LIES!!!

    You wont watch this because you dont want to know this!!

    Re: OBAMA! – thats the problem … YOU my friend … There is nothing wrong with becoming rich after ALL YOUR hard work . what is WRONG is having to hand down to others that just have their hand out … OBAMA wants you to be like that DEPENDENT on the government … SERIOUSLY people need to open their eyes and see that OBAMA is dividing the races and classes … time to move on and try to rebuild this country

  30. buck says – reply to this


    I'm happy to be the 53%, hopefully we get this obama guy out and the 53% will jump to 75%. Just a few short weeks to go America, hang in there!!!!

  31. Disgusted says – reply to this


    Re: James – You need to check your facts, it was the Democrats in the South. The Republicans are the ones who freed the slaves and the Dems who wanted it all for themselves without doing any hard work. Of couse it is easier to steal from those who do the hard work but the more you steal from them the more they will look for a place where they can keep the fruits of their labor unlike here in America. Now the land of the theives, I mean Democrats! You Democrats only want to steal money from those who work hard. What is the difference between Mitt Romney getting help from his parents and all of the 47% who do nothing but steal from those of us who pay taxes? Oh, wait he didn't take taxpayer money he took it from his family and he used it to better his position in life and the taxers on what he makes probably pays for 50 lazy Democrats who have their hand out all the time. Get off your high horse and GET A JOB!

    What he said was 100% true, he losses points for trying to explain himself, those of us with brains SEE what is going on in our country.

  33. paul says – reply to this


    I have to say, I understand that there are many individuals in this country who do need welfare and the help of the government. But getting help does not give you the right to sit back and just accept it. The individuals who do nothing and otherwise "mooch" off the government and us hard working americans, are the ones who give the rest of welfare users (whom actually try to find jobs and contribute) a bad name. But those bad welfare users, are the ones who love Obama. Obama is an amazing man. He has such a great persona about him. But he is not the proper leader for our country… If Obama was white during his first campaign, there is no doubt he probably wouldn't have won. It is a well known fact that he won the "black vote". Thousands of black americans who didn't used to vote suddenly did, for the chance of having a black president. I personally like Obama but think he won for the wrong reasons, and that we need someone better suited to fix our country.

    All you American's are fu*ked no matter which way you go, good luck to you all. With all the finger pointing and bashing over red or blue between yourselves, there is no wonder why nothing gets resolved. I bet deep down you all want the same principal things but are too caught up in in standing stationary in these liberal or conservative boxes.

  36. me says – reply to this


    For every one million dollars we give to the poor and needy, we give 2 million to the outrageously rich. So are you going to slim down on what your buddies from the oil and insurance companies get from the government as well? I'm guessing no. Like usual, R-Money's war on the poor continues.

  37. mitch says – reply to this


    Hmm, after reading the many comments on this post I am baffled why so many Americans still boast that they are the best country in the world. Maybe if you guys got off your over inflated sense of entitlement and start trying to solve your problems rather than point fingers you'd actually get somewhere. Good luck, all you have are super rich people at the top feeding you manipulative evil garbage and you're all eating it up and doing the work for them. You'll continue to spiral downwards if you don't start working together towards the bigger future. It's always easy to blame fault on the little guy, maybe its actually all those rich dudes at the top that you guys should be mad at. After all, how many of those wall street guys are actually in prison for what they've done? I believe the majority of them are now working within your government.

    Re: hoochpit – Could you post the sources that you used to check those facts please? Or at least a name we can google to search for them ourselves?

    Thank God we finally have a politician who will tell the truth. Almost 50% of this country is on the government doll. Shame on them. Most of them are not entitled to it. They are lazy and we are becoming a country of lazy, fat people who want to be taken care of.

    The one year of taxes Romney chose to reveal showed the "business deduction" he takes for his dancing horse- $77,000 -is more than 2/3 of Americans make in a year. Does Romney pay income taxes? I guess we'll never know!

    What cracks me up are the stupid 47% entitlement suckers! Eventually the 53% are going to be tapped out and 47% free loading lifestyle will end, no government has or will be able to sustain that. I don't get how the 47% are happy with mediocrity and such a poverty lifestyle. I guess they love their free entitlements more than work!
    Obama= mediocrity (government hand-out level)
    Romney = prosperity (the kind you work for)

Others on Medicaid but manage to have 50 inch TV's, the best gaming systems and tons of games that cost big bucks and the best name brand foods on the counter, while I, at 56 am working my ass off and clipping coupons to break even. Damn right, I am mad. It has become a WAY OF LIFE for a large group of LAZY people.

    HA HA. Yes, 47% of Americans do not pay FEDERAL INCOME TAX. What many do pay is sales tax, a payroll tax, a gas tax and in many cases, state and local taxes. And the irony is that 9 of 10 states with the largest percentage of the population not paying FEDERAL INCOME TAX are red states. Keep talking, Mitt!

    Re: blackviolet – try learning the difference between income tax and capital gains tax! Income tax is for employed people! Romney is not employed, therefore he pays no income tax, he does however pay capital gains tax on is investment profits!

    It's funny how people overlook the fact that when Obama took office, he was set up to fail. Bush didn't help our country. Obama has been trying to clean up the mess since. I'm not saying he has done an excellent job, but no matter who was elected we would be in the same situation. Just because he is president doesn't make it all his fault. And the unemployment rate is not going to drop if people don't stop being lazy and go out and get a job. There are plenty of jobs out there, but everyone wants to think that they are too good to work at them. McDonalds and Burger King are almost always hiring. Take an order or two and earn your money. Only then will the country start going in the right direction. Enough of this democrat and republican bull crap. They all lie and never follow through on their promises, so why believe one over the other.

    I don't understand what all the fuss is about vote for whomever you want to, without spewing venom at each other. But lets keep it factual:
    Prez Obama bailed out Auto industry
    Prez Bush bailed out the banking industry
    Prez Obama raised the Debt Ceiling
    Prez Bush raised the debt ceiling. There are things that seem to repeat themselves. Yes, I do agree some people are turning unemployment into "fun-employment", but the wages are not high enough to pay many peoples rent/mortgages. However, within these past years the wealth of the 1% has increased significantly while these alleged "job creators" have taken the jobs overseas where they may outsource employment without wage regulation,OSHA standards & taxes, while still getting the tax breaks for being Corporation owners within this country. In a sense both sides (Democratic & Republican) have lost the ability to forfeit some conveniences in the name of the betterment of the country as a whole. So vote for who you think will do best, just spare me the homophobic, racist, divisive comments. Just keep it civil and if you can't please just don't comment. Respectfully yours… An American

    What Romney said is the truth. Obama sure is an expert on class warfare. This is Obama propaganda at it's best. The numbers support Romney's claims. It's pretty sad but not suprising that many who read this website are liberal and feel entitled to big government spending on them. Whatever happened to working to succeed? Obama is pretty much killing the middle class and if he is re-elected, who will he then blame for all his failures? I'm so tired of him blaming everyone else. I'm still waiting for what he promised 4years ago. And I think I will stop reading Perez. I used to come to this website for gossip, not for politics. I have other sites and news channels for that.

    @Yes You Bore Me - - Do you know how dumb you sound? Seriously!

    Tell Mitt to show his taxes…just like the crazy right wanted to see Obama's birth certificate we want to see his last 10 years worth of taxes.

    Okay everybody, no need to name call each other. Its possible to debate without being hateful and while its awesoem to be passionate just remember to be the right kind of passionate.

    However, there are some people who live off welfare but what about the people who actually need the money? So insulting and cruel. He just lost alot of votes.

    Mitt Romney is right. Sorry the truth hurts but the truth should not be insulting. It is what it is. Unlike PC Obama who out and out LIES to your faces. Our country is NOT better off fpur years later and Obama is msking sure of it.

    Mitt got caught, plain and simple. He is unfit to become president . As president you have to be concerned about all people and not just the few people you consider to be important.

    MITT ROMNEY is so effing stupid and hollow….he'll make George W. look like a Rhodes Scholar. If you still think Romney/Ryan are a good idea then you too are suffering from dementia. Don't actually vote for who is good for this country and the world, just vote for the empty shell who will provide you tax write offs at the expense of people suffering.

    Romney has absolutely no chance of winning the US presidency. The American people are far too intelligent to allow someone like him to send this country into a downward spiral that it will take decades to recover from. Obama isn't perfect, but Romney would be catastrophical for America.

    Is this the best you could come up with to attack Romney? He is 100% accurate. A significant number of Americans are on some form of government assistance and do not pay income tax. He was only pointing out that President Obama's approach to fixing the economy will likely appeal to that portion of our population as he has a tendency to focus on more government assistance. He was at a fundraiser trying to get funding for his campaign. Obviously he had to share his strategy to win to justify their financial backing, so he informed the investors of who supports who based on statistics currently and what percent can possibly be swayed to his side so he could easily identify his target audience to the investors and his end result objective. He was only stating the truth, and if the truth hurts then obviously we need to change it! How do you not see that?

    If you think that Obama is bad for America, just wait till Romney gets into the White House. It won't be God Bless America, it will be more like God help America!

    Re: really? – EXACTLY. Obama is spending this country into oblivium and all of you smug feel-good do-gooders are falling for his we are all one BS campaign. If he gets into his second term he will bring this country DOWN to a substandard BROKE level and the joke will be in you. He is out to globally ruin us. We are NOT better off. And if you can't see it you are not paying attention and are in denial.
