This was meant to be the week that Mitt Romney reset his campaign by finally giving voters some specifics about his plans for the country. Instead, we got a unique—though unintended—look at how Mitt Romney views America, which perhaps explains why he’s kept so many details of his plans secret.
Take a look below the fold to see some of the highlights, and lowlights, from the week.
Beyond closed doors, Mitt Romney told a group of wealthy donors that, in his view, 47% of Americans see themselves as “victims” entitled to handouts, and that he could “never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” He went on to say, in regards to nearly half of all Americans:
“[M]y job is not to worry about those people.”
Watch Americans on the street react to Romney’s insulting comments:
Here’s a look at the 47% of the country Romney is disdainfully writing off.
In an effort to detract attention from his own remarks Mitt Romney attacked President Obama for comments he made back in 1998. But in the process, Romney took the President’s words way out of context, omitting key parts of his remarks and their meaning.
Take a look at why context is key.
Romney also spent the week trying to retreat from his extreme anti-immigrants positions in an attempt to appeal to Latino voters, but folks won’t quickly forget his promise to veto the DREAM Act, or his recommendation that undocumented immigrants “self-deport.” Unlike Romney, President Obama has a consistent record of standing up for Latinos.
