Poor Mitt, He Can't Help if He was Born With a Silver Foot in His MouthKenneth G. Ramey Salem-News.com
(In reference to the poor) “My job is not to worry about those people (because) I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their (own) lives.” - Mitt Romney
(PASO ROBLES, CA) - Mitt Romney says he was born with a silver spoon, but inherited nothing. Obama believers might change that to read, “poor Mitt, can’t help it if he was born with a silver foot in his mouth.”
Mitt said “47 percent of voters will vote for Obama Because they are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to healthcare, to food, [Let them eat cake, perhaps?], to housing, who - , you name it.”
“My job is not to worry about those people (because) I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their (own) lives.”
This truth defines the man who would be our President!
Gail Gitcho of Romney’s campaign said afterward, “he wants to help all Americans struggling in the (Obama) economy.”
But that is not what he said, or what he meant!
GOP obstructionism, not Obama, prevents the Jobs Act from creating jobs for people where needed!
Kenneth G. Ramey, Salem-News.com's Religion and Philosophy Writer, confronts the hard issues of politics and religion from a logical point of view that combines interesting insight with history into the truth, or lack thereof, that underlies the strengths and weaknesses of the Religious Right’s determination to use American politics for its own misguided, or selfish, interest. It’s rare for a writer to balance his writing between religious values and the secular guarantees of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights with the knowledge that Ken possesses, and to do it so effectively.
Ken was born in Minnesota but was raised in California since 1932. He is the youngest of four boys raised by his mother alone during the dark years of the Great Depression. He Graduated from SFSU in the 1970s when in his mid-forties, majoring in Spanish North American History, and added three years of post-graduate study, much of it in Philosophy and Religion. We live at a critical time in history and believe Ken's views represent the view of many who are tired of the commercialism and false interpretations about religion today.
