Team Obama email Mischaracterizes Romney Statement - 8/18/12
The following arrived to my inbox this evening and I wanted to share what Stephanie Cutter, Barak Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager, is telling her cam's supporters, and potential donors.
What The email leaves out, though, is everything.
For example, the campaign email doesn't explain how the poverty level has risen over the past 4 years.
It doesn't explain how the policies of Obama are leading up to global economic collapse, and the potential of a major world war thanks to his ineptness at foreign policy!
Stephanie cutter prefers telling her supporters about who Romney thinks are pretty much off the table in his campaign. He, in my opinion, was talking about who he is going to focus his campaign on, and who he isn't.
This doesn't mean he doesn't care about the poor and elderly. In fact, I've seen evidence to the contrary. (CLICK HERE TO SEE AND HEAR SOME EVIDENCE FOR YOURSELF) <--LINK He cares very deeply for them.
Something I do question is Romney's belief that no folks depending on government assistance (like me) will vote for him. Many probably won't, but lots will.
I don't mind if cuts are made to my disability if the health of our Republic is the goal and responsible decisions are made. I can't be alone in my thinking.
Something has to give. We all know it.
The gravy train is going to end; one way or another this ride is going to break down. Romney is our best hope to get this ship turned around.
With Soros' and Obama's managed decline of the dollar and our economy, we'll all be needy when they are through. And, our Republic will be chalked up in the history books as just another imploded republic.
I didn't include the links, so here's the email (link free):
Yesterday, a leaked video from a closed-door fundraiser showed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney telling a room full of big-money donors that Americans who don't support him think they're "victims" who don't "take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
So rarely over the course of this campaign have we gotten to hear Mitt Romney say what he believes in such a revealing, unfiltered manner. This is one of those moments. It's important that we make sure that the people in our lives who are just tuning into this election know what disdain and contempt Romney has for half of the citizens of this nation he wants to lead. Take a look at the items in this tipsheet, and then share them with others.
#1 What Americans think of Romney's comments
The secret video shows that Romney believes nearly half of all Americans won't take responsibility for their own lives and don't pay taxes. Watch this video of Americans listening and reacting to Romney's shocking comments, and make sure others do too:
#2 Who Romney is writing off?
It's worth taking a second to look at some of the people who make up the nearly half of the country that Romney has so much disdain for. Who exactly are these people that Romney rips for not paying income taxes? The overwhelming majority are seniors, students, people with disabilities, or working families. They pay payroll taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, and more. Those working families include U.S. soldiers in combat, receptionists, firefighters, and clergy, just to name a few. Certainly, those folks aren't short on personal responsibility. Read this blog post highlighting some of the Americans that Romney has written off, and share it with others:
#3 Romney's responsibility map
Romney has said that "my job is not to worry about" the people who don't support him. But America needs a president who will stand up for all Americans, not just the half of the country who agrees with him. Take a look at this graphic about Romney's idea of "responsibility" and post it to your Facebook wall.

P.S. -- Another way to fight back against Romney and his divisive politics is to chip in and help fund our grassroots campaign. Romney has big-money donors at closed-door fundraisers, President Obama has you. Chip in $25 or more today.
