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!!!
