World in Chaos; Media Goes After Romney Instead

By Bobby Eberle

It is becoming more apparent that there really are "two Americas" as left-winger John Edwards once described. There is the real America and the world around it, and then there is the America and world that Barack Obama and the media want you to believe. One would think that with all the turmoil in the MIddle East that the media would want to find out what's really going on, right? Nope. They are more interested in attacking Mitt Romney. Thankfully, Romney is standing firm.

Unless you've been living under a rock (and I apologize in advance for anyone who's dwelling in a comfy boulder right now), you have heard what's going on in the Islamic world. Four Americans were murdered in the American Consulate in Libya. Intelligence reports and eyewitness accounts are lending more credence to the notion that the attacks were premeditated. Obama and his minions are spinning a tale of YouTube videos and spontaneous demonstrations.

This leaves the media with two choices. Since the YouTube talking point and the administration's position that the attacks were NOT planned have been well played out in the media, this leaves "journalists" with two choices. 1) They can try to find out what's really going on and hold Obama's feet to the fire, or 2) they can find a story to take people's minds off the turmoil in the Middle East. You guessed it! They picked Option 2.

It turns out that during a fundraising event for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, some bozo recorded some off the cuff comments from Romney in which he described the electorate and the fact that so many people in this country won't vote for him. He noted that so many don't pay income taxes and they have come to depend on the government rather than relying on themselves.

So what happened next? The video was posted on YouTube, and nothing much came of it until it was picked up by a left-wing magazine called Mother Jones. Here's the report from The Blaze:

Mother Jones on Monday released undercover footage of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney candidly addressing donors during a private, off-the-record fundraiser.

"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," the former Massachusetts governor can be heard saying.

"That, that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...These are people who pay no income tax," he continued, adding "so our message of low taxes doesn't connect."

"[M]y job is, is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Here's the video:

Again... this video was shot in someone's house! This was a fundraiser at the home of Marc Leder in Boca Raton, Florida. Someone at the event shot this video and then released it.

Here's another video that was posted on YouTube from the same event:

Thankfully, The Blaze points out one of the tactics of the left... taking things out of context. Here's that quote in context from the full article on Mother Jones:

There is a perception, "Oh, we were born with a silver spoon, he never had to earn anything and so forth." Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon, which is the greatest gift you can have: which is to get born in America.

Nice quote... too bad most people won't ever hear the whole thing.

Now, Romney is left having to address this so-called gaffe. I say so-called, because it's not a gaffe. It's true. Close to 50% of all working Americans do NOT pay income tax. We have former President George W. Bush to thank for that one. And it's also true that there are many, many people who feel that they are owed or entitled to something from the government. Those people will always vote for someone like Barack Obama.

As Fox News reports, Romney said that although not "elegantly stated," his comments were "a message which I am going to carry and continue to carry, which is that the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because frankly my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. Therefore I'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those in the middle."


The Democrats have pounced:

Democrats seized on the tape, claiming they showed the GOP candidate was out of touch. Obama's re-election campaign released a web video Tuesday that asked voters to watch Romney's comments and respond. In the ad, one woman said she felt "sick to my stomach."

The Obama campaign slammed the comments Monday, calling them "shocking."

"It's hard to serve as president for all Americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation," said Jim Messina, campaign manager for Obama for America.

It's admirable that Romney stood by his statements. However, he should have done more. The best thing to do is to be on offense. The next best thing to do is to turn defense into offense. Romney shouldn't simply have clarified his comments, he should have reemphasized them. There are too many people dependent on government. There are too many people who feel that government should pay for their way of life. This is not part of the American Dream... and so on.

Keep in mind that all of this is going on as we are learning more and more about the events in LIbya. And yet, on the home pages of many news web sites, including Fox News, the Romney story is the story of the day.

    We have known for quite some time that the truth is abhorred by the left and when Romney said 47%; that was in contrast to the 99% that the Dems wanted to be known as the un-elite. The 1% do have a lot of advantages and one of them is to be able to create jobs which the 99% need to live and the 47% do not want; since they would be required to pay taxes [how utterly shocking] for them to have to pay taxes! We are living in a ‘handout’ society and four more years of Ozero will just about clinch us as a third world country.

    November 2012 Vote and elect Romney and Ryan.

    Just what is out of touch with Romney’s statements which are ALL true.

    If the American people cannot deal with the truth we have already lost the battle and it is time for the 2nd patriotic American revolution to begin, and this time it will be our Constitution and the rule of law that will be edified over debilitating socialist entitlements of things like welfare and Obamacare. Throw every law out that was passed since the original Constitution was formed and begin anew, and this time let the slaves free themselves with their own spilled blood upon a civil war battlefield, and let the enabled dependent men on welfare who want to be dependent women lay down their welfare checks and man-up, and let the women who want all the privileges of being a man lay down their free birth control pills, unequal medical payments and grab a rife and try to win it back the old fashion way, the way all liberties are secured, with the blood, sweat and tears in sacrifice for freedoms earned, never appropriated or redistributed. Only in our dreams!

    Would it not be just alot easier to deal in truth and let the self-deceiving non-contributors just start paying their fair share and save us all this division and class hatred by correcting our problems peacably in the voting booth? Let there be no mistake, that if we do not do by peaceful means what our founders left us to protect then it will be by other means less desireable with irrvocable conseqences to those who come after us. Let the victory begin in November.

      I agree with you 100%. I was born and raised in AMERICA – Alabama. Over the last 65 years I have come to the realization I do not recognize the country I was born and raised in. I worked for a living, paid my taxes, but never asked for a handout. By the way I do have an original copy of my birth certificate, all I had to do was go to the State Office of Records, pay a $5.00 fee and in ten minutes or less I was handed my birth certificate. In addition High Scoll records, College documents.

      I do not know the AMERICA I was born in. I am with you that the time has come for the 2nd Patrioic American Revolution! I am sick and tired of everything that comes out of government.

      Return our values back to: ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

    What is the average effective Federal income tax rate for medium income households? 5.6%…Romney paid 14-15% or three times the average rate and about 1000 times more in actual dollar amounts. So tell me tax and spend Democrats of the non-productive wealth consuming collective, just when are YOU going to step up and pay YOUR fair share. The fact is that with all your mindless wimpy Liberal Democrat Class warfare divide and conquer American cry towels of declaration about Romney not paying HIS fair share, it is You in truth that are being carried on the backs of others.

      We have not even counted all the people hired by Romney’s businesses that have paid taxes. Just what taxes haves any of the liberals generated from the free market system? The only taxes they have generated we are paying. They are government union jobs and benefits for which we end up paying for out of our taxes. So not only are we paying taxes out of our own money earned but on government jobs. These are high paying and totally out of hand benefits that the private sector never receive, such as Chicago school teachers and totally unnecessay jobs one can NEVER get fired from even for poor performance. This is with the exception of our fighting men and women. They are just above poverty level but still pay taxes.

      Romney’s remarks are a game changer only in the minds of the media who uses this non-sense to manipulate fearful guilty minds who know in their hearts what he says is true. When the majority of Americans embrace the Liberal self-deceptions of entitlement to another person’s honestly earned personal property then it is game over for America. You know who you are and you know you are the real enemy every time you take a handout from the God-Government you have enthralled yourself to. Guess what, Governments rise, but they also fall. Check history 101. It is usually those who fail to pull their own weight, which causes governments to fall. Enter Obama, Pelosi and Reid our own American bred domestic terrorists who fly their misguided party aircraft into the American twin towers of Freedom and personal responsibility.

    And?…Come on, he spoke the truth. But (whine whine) “he’s cold and priveleged and he doesn’t care about half the U.S.” Yeah I feel sick to my stomach too but it has nothing to do with the fact that Rommey actually sees what is really going on in the nation. It has to do with the fact that every time he opens his mouth there is some liberal media idiot ready to pick and choose the content they use to fuel the anger and unrest of the herd.
    Speaking of anger, it just makes my blood boil that the leaches who do nothing to contribute to the society that they are sucking the life out of are so spoiled and self-absorbed that the only thing they can hear is what suits their “poor oppressed me” mindset. They want poor oppressed me? Wait until there aren’t any more of us working fools left to support their life of leisure. Hope Obama has deep pockets.

    Half a century ago the news came to us as honestly and clear as possible. The news was broadcasted once in the morning and once in the evening, and by a man, not some woman who sounds like a stuck pig. Now we have a multitude of radio and TV stations with thousands of reporters, and the news mixed in with commercials and opinions costing big bucks. The competition is unreal so each story gets stretched to the snapping point. One subject can last days and days to keep it alive. All said and done, who knows what is true or not ?

      We haven’t gotten the truth from the media since televison entered the home. We didn’t get the news. Not even during the viet Nam war. The media helped us lose the war. Even the father of the news good ol’ Walter Kronkite was a liberal reporting the news Every night I would listen as he told how many of our men were killed and how many Viet Vong were killed. I kept thinking arent we going to run out of soldiers? I became so depressed. It was never anything cheering our country on. Just downers. Everything changed. Everybody became an actor offering his or her dramatic opinion. The actors have become experts on world affairs because they listen to the actors in the media. It is a vicious circle of idiots who think they know it all. A little knowledge is downright dangerous! Remember the Mc Carthy era? Not everything he did was wrong. But you would think he was the biggest traitor in America. I would sure like him back today! We went from fearing communism to flirting with it. What’s next?I remember Kruschev saying we would bury ourselves in communism. Isn’t that what could be happening if Obanma gets re-elected?

Well I have news for the media. I happen to agree 200% with Gov Romney! I hope this feeble attempt on from the media will back fire. We are in a fiscally crisis, mounting violence and anti-american sentiments all over the world and BO is meeting up with Letterman. Disgusting. This charlatan is all about himself!

    Gov. Romney is right, 47% will vote for the president regardless of what Romney says or does. 47% will vote for Gov. Romney. That leaves 6% “undecided.” What should the governor do to win over that 6%? He must speak the TRUTH with passion and conviction. The truth is the truth is the truth whether you believe it or not or like it or not.
    Thinking people recognize the truth when they hear it.
    Isn’t it amazing that the president cannot run on his economic policy because it is ice cold and he cannot run on his foreign policy because it is burning up so what does he do?
    He runs on deception, distortion, and emotion.

    Have you voters not seen enough or remained asleep. Dont say I didnt warn you. If BO wins, you can say bye bye to your 1st amendment, he is already asking google to stop the video that supposedly sparked the violence and death of 4 americans. If anything is a spark to these violence is BO constant apologies!

It seems like everyday, but probably not that often, O is out there promising some group something. I don’t think he understands we are broke. That is the one thing that also puzzles me, we are sending money all over the world and having to borrow it to give away. Something just doesn’t seem right to me. The media will keep up with this as it is taking what ought to be the top news, the choas all over the world which O did make. I guess he got some help along the way like Soros and the stupid other libs in Congress and top military advisors, AND HilLERY and that Ambassador or whoever she is saying it wasn’t a planned attack.

    Mitt, you were right on to make those comments because there are citizens of this country who always have their hands out to the government. There is what I call, “the welfare mentality.” Why there are these types of people, I don’t know. What I do know is this, that when we had President Kennedy in the White House he made a comment which goes like this, “Don’t ask what the country can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your country.” Now when these words were said, NO ONE was screaming and criticizing him…..but then ole Kennedy was after all a Democrat. Now, since Mitt had the same idea as Kennedy, is the media deaf and dumb?? I say, YES and I am tired of hearing any kind of news due to their biases.

    It is amazing that I am reading the truth. It has been a long time since the truth or anything close to it has been told to the voters of this country. Obama and the liberal machine has been lying for decades and the needy have been eating it up. The truth is we don’t owe the government anything but our vote. We are the government. I am embarassed about this.We control our future and we choose socialism. Our founding fathers must be violently ill right now over what we have allowed to happen. We have given away everything they have left us. This November we need to get it back. Defeating Obama and his message of “you can’t live without me ” attitude has to go. When you go to the polls this Nov. Ask yourself what you want. A free nation or a totallitarian one. God gave us the chance to be the beacon of freedom and we are throwing it away.

    Romney doesn’t have to explain his position. Just state your piece and get onto more important business.

      Liberals are terrified of the truth, because it either reveals them for the dirtbags they are, or shatters the delusionary little world they’ve built for themselves in their own minds. Liberals conjure up some utopian paradise that would never work in the “real” world, then behave as though their fantasy is reality. That’s why most of what they say makes no sense,m or sounds downright dumb–it is not based upon reality.

    I can see absolutely nothing wrong with anything Romney said. It was all true (something that, apparently, is a novelty in liberal land.) This was a Q&A discussion, not a speech. He was ruminating off the cuff. The problem lies in the dishonest response by the dems. What they do better than anyone else is feign dismay and shock, and then smear that all over the news. Most people will not even listen to Romney’s comments. They will just gut-react to the liberal responses and assume that something horrible was said. Once again, and I know I sound like a broken record here, the MSM will aide and abet the dems disingenuous “reaction” with their slanted reporting.

    The last time I checked, Florida was a two-party consent state, meaning that in private conversations, all parties must be aware of and consent to any recording of the conversation.

    Everyone acknowledges this was a private event, not open to the public, and thus, it’s likely the law would apply here.

    I doubt Romney wants to bring this up — it won’t help him — but how telling is it that certain people on the other side of this political race continue to not give a flip about the law. Perhaps they get that attitude from the president — who expressed no concern that yet another law had been broken — on his behalf.

    The president’s “outrage” seems fake to me, and just as manufactured as his excuse for the embassy attacks.

    Hopefully he won’t be president for much longer.

      I’d like just -one- commentator to ask the question: Is there some motive behind the release of this information this close to the election when the event and the tape from it occurred in May? and is there any linkage to the fact that the tape was made by the grandson of Jimmy Carter, who has repeatedly been described throughout the campaign as the worst President until Obama? Even a hypothetical question, since there’s no expectation of a truthful answer, would be nice.

    Let’s call a spade a spade. Out of the 47%, how many are actually hard-working Americans that are just out of work, through no fault of their own? OK, so that leaves 46.999% of those that feel no shame for living on the government tit, commonly known as “THE TAXPAYERS”.

    Born in America: We all were born with a silver spoon in our mouths! Romney is correct. Some bent the hell out of their spoons and eventually threw them in the trash cans. Then, they wanted people who made something of their lives to take care of them. Enters Big Government handing over tax payer’s money, food, medical care, free education, food stamps… People need to be informed but the mainstream media will not help. They have gone to the left and there they will stay. They make a fortune$$$$$ and laugh all the way to the bank while their friends live in government housiing and collect food stamps. If they reported unbiased and real news, they would lose their jobs; as some good reporters have lost their jobs for telling the truth about what is happening in this country!

    I am really sick of hearing so called news reporters that push their opinions and view of the events they are reporting. There is no moral conscience among them any longer. They twist and pull and strain the truth until it is a totally different story than it was when it happened.
    How has Obama hypnotized the press so completely they are ready to jump of the cliff at his command? The press tell so many lies it is impossible for “we the people” to truly know what is happening in our world. It is no wonder we do not trust any political party or any promise. All we hear is lies and more lies. I have truly kept up and checked everything I can check up on and believe that Obama is lying if noise is coming out of his mouth and it scares me to death that people are following him like the pied piper as he leads the country into disaster.
    I agree that Romney was stating the truth in these clips. He is right-on. Anyone born in the USA has the silverspoon. God help us keep her free!

    one thing that this article didn’t mention (maybe that didn’t become known until after the article was printed) but that I saw on my local news tonight is that the person that brought this video to the attention of Mother Jones News is…. James Carter IV, grandson of former one-term president Jimmy Carter. http://www.13wmaz.com/news/article/197118/175/Carter-Grandson-Arranged-Romney-Videos-Release. he says in the interview that he’s dedicated to getting Democrats elected. apparently at any cost.

      It does not surprise me that the Carter’s struck again to try to make themselves important. This James Carter IV is dishonest to do this, but it is really back firing on him because he released the truth. Speaking of silver spoons – - he sure has one with the peanut farmer. That is not a poor family.

    Folks — your talking points don’t fit your argument. Somebody needs to tell your writers to update the directives, because you aren’t gaining any ground.

    Your headline is correct; worldwide trouble, and certainly, the media will go after Romney. But there’s more to the whole R campaign than these comments. I say these things from a position of worry for R and R. It seems Romney’s campaign manager/advisers are behind the curve; they wait for a punch before jabbing back, sometimes weakly. Mitt needs to say to the people – accurately and strongly – why and how he can do a better job than Obama. Obama is making points by Romney wasting time on the voters “getting to know him.” Tell them how your ideas are better; optimism. Something not heard in four years. Mitt must be careful! The media is thirsting for his next mistake: Don’t make any! And don’t count on much aid from the Republican hierarchy; sadly, you’re not “their guy” They are the ones that will lose BIG if O gets back in – and years for them to regain that which they think they’ve got now. Read a chilling small story in the paper this AM: “Are the debates Romney’s last stand?” We’ve got a large task, Mitt – we’re outnumbered. Your campaign people had better step up – today! BTW what’s Ryan doing lately? Notice the great media coverage he’s getting? My hope is he’s winning voters.We’ll need every one. You can probably tell I’m not feeling too well about this election. With O’s record, he should be a dozen points behind. The weakness on the R and R side has to be fixed today, also.

    Did anybody catch the News this morning, 19 Sept, 2012 ?? In the tapes some anomynous person made available “last week” that Romney said 47 % of the American People were on some kind of Government Subsistance. Boy, all hell broke loose on that one, every Liberal almost had a heart attack over that statement. Now, getting to the News of this morning. Somebody actually went to the latest Census Report and looked up the new figures. The Census Report showed 49 % of the American People were on Federal Subsistance’s. This a whole 2 % MORE than what Gov. Romney put out. Now the question is : WHERE is all of the Main Street Media’s Comedian’s comments today???? I guess their bubble must have burst due to the “ACTUAL FACT’S” being shown. Wake up MSM, nobody really believes your B__L S__t any more. Thank you for your time. TSgt., USAF Retired.

    Another thought(question) just hit me. Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan are running for the President and Vice President of these United States of America. WHERE are the rest of the Republican side of this Government??? These Senators and Congressional Representatives should be up on Stage helping these two Candidates tell what needs to be done. Instead they are sitting on their fat ***** complaining about some small **** that could be solved, IF , they would all work together. TWO PEOPLE can’t make it alone, Republican Party, GET OFF YOUR FAT BUTTS and give them your personal support. By doing that, OBAMASS and his Muslim, Communistic, Unqualified bunch of Misguided Misfits – can and will be removed from Office. Thank you for your time – again. TSgt., USAF Retired.

      To Yourworstnightmare : Yes, and it really grates my *** for these free loading Senators and Congressional Representatives to call my hard earned benefits “ENTITLEMENTS”. I worked 40 years and paid into all of their “Systems” every Month day in and day out so I COULD Retire some day. You, by the way, sound a little Sourcastic or maybe Jealous because I do draw two different pay checks from the Government. Both of them are two different Retirement Systems Garanteed by the United States Government. One of them garanteed by my 20 plus years of Active Duty Service in the Army and Air Force in different Countries of this World. The other years were paid for by hard work with different Companies. If I am wrong about the sourcastic/jealous remarks, I will apoligize now – I’m Sorry. Thanks again, or your time. TSgt., USAF Retired.

      I’m not sure what you are saying but I don’t think Romney was talking about people with short-term needs, pensions or even retirement benefits. (You do know by now that two minutes of Romney’s comments were cut out, right? I wonder why.) I think Romney was talking about those folks who suck off the system their entire lives and have never even attempted to get a job – welfare is their “work.” It is often the family “business” for generations. They game the system to increase their benefits and laugh up their sleeves at the poor dopes who pay the bill.

      To: pwpmmp, I agree with you and I do know that, or think that, Romney was talking about the same group of people you speak of. Here in Southeast Missouri, it also known that some families will breed sons & sisters together so they can get more Welfare Money for the babies. Some get caught and it goes hard for them but, some do not get caught and the next year another mouth is added to the Rolls. He was also talking about these people that have a “Bad Back”, get a Disability Check, still go fishing and have no trouble catching and lifting a 30 pound catfish. TSgt., USAF Retired.

    When these things are released to the world I spend a lot of time on various websites reading the comments and doing the research to debunk the lies. For the most part, no one really gives a rat’s behind about it. Romney supporters are behind him 100% and totally agree with him. About the only people I see squawking about this are the same old lame “Left of Lenin” loonies, who will never change their minds as Mr. Romney stated. I have also seen some typically liberal rags agree with his assessment. I have a small “army” of people who are disseminating the truth as fast as our fingers can type. Romney/Ryan 2012 and 2016.

    I don’t see what all the whining is about. Instead of beating around the bush and trying to placate everyone, Mitt Romney finally told us exactly where he stands and what he stands for. Let the voters make a choice. After all, the less information, the more inefficient the market. Now we’ll see what the American voters buy.

    “And yet, on the home pages of many news web sites, including Fox News, the Romney story is the story of the day.” That’s what bothers me about Fox News. It’s not much more “fair and balanced” than any of the rest of the MSM.
    While listening to Rush on a local radio station, on the hour and half hour there’s a break for Fox Radio News, and frankly I’ve found it’s perspective is very little different than say the Associate Press. I usually simply ignore it and do something else until Rush comes back on. About the only thing Fox News is good for these days is Hannity’s TV show.
