The Real Romney - Another secret recording shows what Romney really thinks about minorities, birth control, and public assistance.
In a new recording of a conference call that took place yesterday, Romney told his contributors that Obama’s strategy was to “focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote.” These gifts, Romney lamented, “add up to trillions of dollars” and were delivered to “targeted groups,” “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people”
I just can’t with this. Things like education and access to decent health care aren’t “gifts”, they’re basic human rights. The wars in the Middle East have also cost untold trillions. Of course I don’t see them complaining about that….

"I’m not familiar precisely with what I said, but I’ll stand by what I said whatever it was."
Mitt Romney, when asked about previous comments he’s made regarding President Obama and Jeremiah Wright.
Mitt Romney just made flip-flopping an Olympic sport. Or something.
For the record, here’s what he said on Sean Hannity’s radio show:
“I think again that the president takes his philosophical leanings in this regard, not from those who are ardent believers in various faiths but instead from those who would like America to be more secular. And I’m not sure which is worse, him listening to Reverend Wright or him saying that we must be a less Christian nation.” [Hannity Radio, 2/7/12]
