    Mitt Romney's video expressing disdain for the middle class another issue that makes him unfit to be president of USA


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter EWillies1961 was extremely upset by the leaked video of Romney's comments on taxes, saying he felt the Republican presidential candidate's words were 'misleading.' He also thinks it could be the incident that tips the election in Obama's favor. 'I think this one incident will harden at least half the electorate against him [and] will definitely make the path for President Obama much easier,' he said. 'What's important to note is the video is a reflection of how [Romney] really thinks which makes him incompatible with the office of the presidency.' See another perspective here.

    Many are surprised of the video where Mitt Romney looks down at the middle class with disdain. He claims 47% of Americans, those who do not pay federal income taxes will always vote for President Obama. Additionally he implied they were just interested in getting government handouts and not being responsible for their own lives.

    Mitt Romney should be careful. While he looks down at these folks for not being able to pay taxes he should note that he has never created anything of societal value. He made his own wealth by loading companies up with debt and extracting wealth. These companies were created with the minds, intelligence, and innovation of others. In other words, Mitt Romney by definition is no more than a parasite. He takes away. He pilfers. He export jobs He makes the masses poor then he complains that they cannot afford to pay taxes.
