His speech was fluid and familiar. He was speaking “off the cuff” and from his heart. The behind closed doors talk to wealthy donors finally revealed the true conviction of Mitt Romney (rather than the ever changing, contradictory “principles” of the campaign, so far). Romney told the millionaires gathered:
“[M]y job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
He said he was referring to 47% of all Americans. He was referring to every senior who depends on social security. He was referring to every parent of every student who relies on student loans to go to college. He was referring to men and women serving in the military and their families.
Mitt has finally made the choice in this election very clear.
The other “big news” today is the fact that the DOD is giving up on having American soldiers and Marines train Afghan police and military. Too many of our side (52 soldiers so far this year) have been killed by our Afghan “allies”. Meanwhile, non-essential American civilians are being evacuated from Afghanistan because our “allies” are rioting and threatening every Westerner in sight. After over a decade at war, trillions in dollars and most importantly thousands of American casualties, this is what we have? I happen to agree with the critics that as far as war goes, there is not a breath of difference between President Obama and George W. Bush. Both have lied to us and both have wasted good men and women over that lie that is Afghanistan.
