RANT. RANT. RANT.
This morning I saw this video posted on Twitter.
“There are 47% of people…who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing.” ENTITLED TO FOOD!!!???!! FOOD!??! Yes, there’s 47% of people who believe they are entitled to food and THEY SHOULD BE ENTITLED TO FOOD! FOOD! ENTITLED TO FOOD! IT’S FOOD!! PEOPLE ARE ENTITLED TO EAT! HOW DOES SOMEONE WHO’S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT SAY THAT?!? This has to be Mitt Romney’s Marie Antoinette “let them eat cake” moment. Except, of course, Marie Antoinette thought THEY SHOULD EAT! For the last month Mitt Romney has combated claims he’s out of touch, that he lacks compassion, that he may well be a Bond villain. Well, there goes that. This makes Barack Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quip look like -well- nothing more than an out of context quip.
I turned on MSNBC ready to see a public lynching. Ready to see Mitt hung by his feet, Mussolini style. Ready for a loop of, ‘they think they’re entitled to food,” over and over and over again. Instead, I get a wonky look at the tax policy. WHAT?!?!? The bastion of liberal media saw that video and said, “Let’s throw a bunch of pie charts and line graphs and the American people to show them, how the rich also receive entitlements, how mostly the elderly (who happen to vote Republican) don’t pay income taxes.” MSNBC, you realize Mitt Romney, a man who’s running for President of the United States of America, just intimated that poor people are not entitled to FOOD. FOOD! Let me say that again. FOOD!!!
Oh MSNBC why can’t you be more like Fox News. You do realize Fox News is still running with “You didn’t build that,” even though they KNOW it’s out of context? MSNBC get YOUR SHIT TOGETHER! This is the election right here. The Deceleration of Independence says, “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” while it’s not directly in there, I’m pretty sure FOOD plays a part in that.
Now you’re showing maps MSNBC? WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?! You’re over thinking this one. YOU’RE DROPPING THE BALL!! Someone in Obama’s campaign PLEASE call these guys. Get off the tax issue. THIS IS NOT A TAX ISSUE!! THIS IS A MORALITY ISSUE!! THIS IS A RIGHT TO EAT ISSUE!! You’re letting him off the hook and Fox is LOVING this. They’re calling it “class welfare.” They’re calling it “tax reform.” They’re calling Obama’s America “a welfare state.”
Now you’re back on Paul Ryan lying about his marathon time. NO ONE CARES ABOUT PAUL RYAN’S MARATHON TIME!!! Get to the fact that Mitt Romney just said people are not ENTITLED TO FOOD!!!!
Someone call Bill Clinton please!!! I need Bill Clinton. They’re sweeping this under the rug. Bill Clinton, WHERE ARE YOU??
Ugh, so frustrating, (facepalm).
