Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

Mitt Romney told the truth!

Posted by Dana Pico on 2012/09/17

The Democrats are pushing this meme, as though it’s somehow a bad thing. Well, yup, he said it, and he told the absolute truth! He won’t ever convince the welfare malingerers and those dependent on government that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. He won’t ever persuade a 30 year old college student, one able to afford an expensive private school like Georgetown University, that she should be expected to buy her own birth control pills, and not depend on someone else to do it for her. He will never persuade those people who think that other people somehow owe them a living that they should take care of themselves. He will never convince the occupiers and the fleabaggers that they are responsible for their own lives and own success, and that they need to grow the [insert slang term for fornicate here] up.

And this is why the TEA Party exists, this is why so many working class people will vote Republican. We do our best to take care of ourselves, we do our best to be responsible for ourselves and our families, and we work damned hard to support ourselves and our families; we don’t have the time or the energy or the money to carry the fornicating malingerers on our backs!

The vast majority of conservatives wouldn’t have any problem at all paying taxes to help people less fortunate, if they were truly just unable to support themselves. But most of us get damned pissed off knowing that the welfare system in this country is loaded up not just with people who can’t work, but with people who won’t work.

    And Governor Romney stood by his statements on the video:

    In a brief and hastily called news conference Monday just after 10 p.m., Mr. Romney acknowledged having made the blunt political and cultural assessment, saying it was “not elegantly stated,” but he stood by the substance of the remarks, insisting that he had made similar observations in public without generating controversy. . . .

    Mr. Romney said his comments addressed “a question about direction for the country: Do you believe in a government-centered society that provides more and more benefits? Or do you believe instead in a free-enterprise society where people are able to pursue their dreams?”

    Absolutely right! He told the truth and should defend the truth, and keep defending the truth, at every campaign stop, in every ad.

    Here’s the video, or at least my attempt to embed the video; I know that our esteemed host’s site sometimes has problems with embedded videos.


  3. I edited the above to allow the video. Dana, if you strip out the embed coding and just put the full link instead, you get the video automatically — provided, of course, that it’s a YouTube video as the above was.
