Yep, that's right...best quote of the morning from Tucker Carlson while listening to my usual WMAL morning show-"Well, that's a real scandal in this town..telling the truth." I'm paraphrasing a little, but I love it nonetheless.
What truth do I speak of? Well the lamestream media will be absolutely BREATHLESS with angst over Mitt's comment taped by those crack undercover reporters at Mother Jones...who of course can't seem to find all those guns the DOJ let loose on Mexico...or find those pesky terrorists who attacked our embassy...or can't find that crazy Cabinet Secretary who violated the Hatch Act...but I digress.
NOPE, what has the likes of Brian Williams, Matt Lauer and Chris "Legs" Matthews all uptight today (or business as usual) is this quote:
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what…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. 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. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax…And so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.
This will no doubt cause heads to explode and mouths to foam at ABCBSMSNBCWAPONYTKOS land...because it's TRUE...100% TRUE...let's review this video for a moment.
This is, of course the CLASSIC Obama voter....bar none...
Now, before picking this little tidbit apart, let's remember when Obama decided he didn't need the white, blue collar Reagan Democrat vote, shall we?
President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign will be the first in modern political history to abandon white working-class voters, strategists claim.
For decades, Democrats have been losing more and more blue collar whites. Their alienation helped lead to the massive Republican wave in 2010, when the GOP wooed 30 percent more of them than the Democrats could.
Democratic strategists say President Obama is focusing his attention, instead, on poor black and Hispanic voters and educated white professionals.
