"So What!" Romney Supporters Don't Care What Mitt Said or Does. They Want To Win
Do you remember the woman that yelled at her U.S. Representative at a town hall meeting to:
" Keep your G.D. Government hands off my Medicare."
She didn't know that Medicare was run by government. She just knew she liked it and didn't want Obama messing with it.
Why? Because the Republicans told her that's what Obama was doing.
God love low-information voters.
They mean well. If only someone could convince them to head in the right ..er..the correct direction. They certainly have the passion..just not a good guidance system.
A large dose of FOX will induce hypnosis in our elderly. They remember when 'Republican' meant 'Rockefeller' not Tea Party. They're just not up to speed.
Mitt Romney has those same low information supporters riled up again.
"How dare those damn Liberals accuse our Mitt with trying to pull the wool over our eyes. Our Mitt would never do that. He's such a nice young man. So honest".
But when you try to explain that there's a video that just came out that was recorded with Romney talking, they cut you off at the ankles.
"Sure, someone must have dubbed Mitt's voice in over something else. You know they can do a lot with electronics these days."
Sure we can, Lady. Just not this time.
It doesn't matter what Mitt Romney says or does to avid Republican supporters. I'll say it again, "IT DOESN'T MATTER."
The anti-reform Republican "hooligans," who turn up at various town hall meetings to shout incomprehensible loud noises just happen to be senior citizens.
Many of these same people are in the 47% that Romney was talking about as being moochers.
Of course, we now know, Romney didn't know who those 47% were either at the time of the taping, but it sounded good for the $50,000 a plate guest that coughed up the cash.
And while the old people who turned up to protest health care reform are, to some extent, victims of the usual Republican lies and disinformation that Romney's comments exposed, it doesn't matter.
This is a tribal thing, not a rational thing.
Republicans vote Republican. It would be disloyal to vote otherwise, even when this 'Republican' hasn't got your back.
It doesn't matter to these Romney supporters. They want their 'team' to W-I-N! Yeah, Team!
