Irony for Romney


47% is Romney’s albatross (courtesy of CHARLES DHARAPAK / AP)

We all know that one of the reasons GOP candidate Mitt Romney lost the recent presidential election was his 47% comment to fat cat fundraisers, as reported by the magazine Mother Jones.

The video of his speech to wealthy donors included a comment where Romney basically accused 47% of Americans of being “victims” who expect the government to help because they “refuse to take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

As if losing the election weren’t punishment enough, it now seems that Romney will receive one final slap in the face. According to the non-partisan Cook Political Report, it appears that Mitt will end up with roughly 47% of the popular vote, compared to 51% collected by President Obama.

You don’t have to be a numerologist to realize that 47% will likely haunt poor Romney for the rest of his life. If only he had remembered that in the age of technology and global connecti0ns, everything you say is liable to hit the Internet faster than a bullet train…

  1. Bwahahahah He gets it in the botox.

  2. The problem is that all those atomistic macho contractors have their wives working for the government to get them all benefits, not to mention the real reason they work for themselves is so no one can see them break the law or go out of business. This is why Galbraith advocated that we prefer big business, big labor and big government.
